Natural Instincts by Clairol, $8.99, is a demi-permanent color. It will stick around for up to 28 washes, making it a great choice for trying out a new shade or for those who like to switch colors often. To color your hair, mix the Color Activating Créme with the colorant and apply the solution to dry hair. Treating your hair with Color Refresher after two weeks will help freshen up the look. For Asian hair, try Midnight Black, or for a lighter shade of brown hair, try Medium Cool Brown Clove. Light Auburn Spiced Tea is good for covering gray hair in redheads. Find the full range of colors with the hair color chart on the Clairol website.
L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference, $9.99, is a permanent hair dye available in over 50 shades. The effects can last from four to six weeks after application. When dying your hair with Superior Preference, treat the gray areas first; then work on the rest of your hair. If you find a favorite shade on the Superior Preference hair color chart and stick with it, you can choose to just touch up your roots with the tip of the applicator. Light Ash Blonde provides a natural look for light hair without strong yellow undertones. Chic Auburn Brown and Hi-lift Ash Brown are both good options for covering grays. The full spectrum of Superior Preference colors is available for viewing with the hair color chart on the L'Oreal website.
