Question: "Which hair color works best on grays?" -- Sandy M.Answer: "If it is done right, permanent hair color doesn't damage hair and it's the best way to cover gray, that's what it's made for," Johns explains. If you're concerned that your hair will get damaged from coloring it too often, simply touch up your roots when needed -- no need to color the entire strand. If you dye it from roots to ends every time, your ends will gradually become more saturated and you'll end up with unintentional two-tone hair.
