At Peter Mark we are here to help by answering two of the common queries regarding grey hair.
Why does it turn grey and what can I do to combat it?
Why hair turns Grey? Your hair and skin contain melanocytes which produce melanin. This is what gives our skin its colour. We also have melanocytes in our cells which make up our hair follicles. The melanin produced by these melanocytes determines the colour of our hair. As we age our cell reproduction rate decreases and eventually stops and this is what turns your hair white.
Although the world over it is referenced as grey it is, in fact, white and only appears grey in tone as it is next to your natural pigmented colour.
What's the best colour for White hair - One of the main differences between colouring white hair and colouring natural or pigmented hair is the fact you cannot lighten white hair as lightening products such as powder bleach require your hair to have pigments in order to work.
A common problem white-haired clients can face is resistant hair. White hair has much tighter cuticle layers than natural or pigmented hair and as a result product can encounter problems when penetrating the hair shaft to perform the colouring process depending on the size of the colour molecule contained in the product.
At Peter Mark, we have specific colour brands for white hair and resistant hair available in all our salon locations. L'Oréal Inoa supreme was designed solely for white hair and gives a more complex and beautifully natural coverage. Plus it contains the patented ingredient Densilium to help plump up the hair giving it extra. Lack of volume is another common complaint of clients with white hair. With resistant hair, we carry the Inoa Deep Cover which is ideal for even the most stubborn white hair and can be intermixed with your chosen shade to give you natural-looking even coverage.
To find out more call into any of our salon locations and speak with a Colour Specialist as all our consultations are complimentary and no commitment.
