Hi Beautiful! Let's talk about the scary subject of gray hair. The tell tail sign of aging. Let's face it, it's going to happen to most of us and this is the cause and what you can do about it.

  • I love this video. You gave me some good ideas on what to use on my own hair.

  • Great Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your opinion. Have you researched - Millawdon Goodbye Gray Trick (just google it)? It is a good one of a kind guide for learning how to reverse gray hair fast without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my old buddy Taylor at very last got excellent results with it.

  • I just wanted to complain that I'm half Asian and started going grey at 27! 😂 I'm 31 now and it's so disheartening. Do you have a recommended style for prematurely greying hair? Currently using box dye and I know it's terrible lol

  • Brad, I want to "embrace" my greys and right now with times being tough I cant go to the salon. I have been doing bleach every 6 to 8 weeks and it is making a difference, but I cant seem to get it to that more silver look. Even with toner. So what would you suggest to just even slightly achieve this? Normally I would see my amazing stylist. Thanks so much and I look forward to your answer.

  • If hair grows out from the root grey rather than turns grey, (which sounds reasonable) what about all the people that go through some horrendous ordeal that turns their hair grey over night? Are they all fables?

  • What would you recommend to get a partial cover of gray hair? I use a demi-permanent toner with a 10 volume, it doesn't completely covers the gray but it doesn't damage my fragile hair, and kind of blends it. After several tries, that's what it looks the most natural and healthy.

  • Please settle a bet - I've read that using an onion juice wash can prevent/darken/reverse (*although I don't totally buy into full-on reversal) of grey hair. The idea/smell alone is a huge deterrent, but I'd try it if it works..I know...

  • So what if you have gray and are covering hot roots (natural brunette going purply red, roots slid more to magenta). Will 10 volume and the darker purple color deposit enough color on to the gray and avoid lifting the hot old roots anymore?

  • I had tried to let my hair grow out during quarantine, wanting to at least test the waters regarding going grey. Before quarantine, I would frequently get shock when I'd tell people my age (early 40s), them assuming I was 10 years younger. It was single process but it would pick up the color in a way that looked like highlights. The grey made me look in my fifties - there was some blending but my natural hair color is tree bark brown so the natural areas was a muddled disaster. I realize there will be a time to embrace the grey but you showed women who are significantly older and I AM NOT THERE. Got a friend to do the box dye and I feel a whole lot better about life.

  • So you said it is magical that your hair can change colors as you age by losing its melanin. Let me tell you about what pregnancy did to mine. When I got pregnant with my twins my natural hair color was light brown. I had been dying it red for years, because I was literally the only person in my family without red hair. During my pregnancy I did not dye my hair because I read that the hormones can affect how your hair takes color. I was afraid of messing up my hair. As it grew out throughout the 8 and a half months I was pregnant, my roots grew in red. Not quite the same shade of red I had been dying it, but my hair did turn red when I was pregnant. I am now 7 months post partum, I cut off all of my colored hair, so now all I have is virgin hair, and it is still red.

  • It is also a matter of genetics, my dad started having gray hair from a very young age and I started having my gray hair also very young, I just entered my 40's and I already have almost all my hair gray. 😊 So I'm lucky not to have to bleach it. 😜 And my youngest daughter is going to be 15 years old, but since she was 13, gray hair started to grow and I think she is lucky too because she is starting to have her natural highlights. 😁

  • Hey Brad! I don't know if I'll get a direct response but I've been going gray since I was 13 and I'm about to turn 26. I'm about 80 percent gray and made a mistake. I Garnier box dyed that shiz for the first time in over ten years. And it's washed out except this ugly broze sheen. I want my white back. Best solution? Permanent hair color remover or grow it out? Edit: or something else??

  • Brad, how do you do the partial coverage single process? With a Demi-permanent color? Sadly, I’m tired of highlighting. It just doesn’t stay looking vibrant for more than a week or so. It looks dull and brassy FAST. I’ve tried the Fanola, the Malibu.. Maybe it’s my hard water. I need an alternative because I’m wasting so much money..

  • Starting to get more and more white hairs (I'm 23, started at 21) and honestly I can't wait for my entire head to be white because.... Pastel pink overtone here I come! In the meantime I'll probably just get highlights to blend it or maybe just let it be idk. My mom was almost completely white by the time she was in her 30s and she dyed it dark every month for YEARS until a few years ago and then she transitioned which was a pain in the butt, it looks great now tho!

  • Thank you for this. At 52 my hairstylist says I am around 75% gray/white already. They are sort of wire texture and unruly where my hair was once a straight smooth curtain that never needed a straightener. After getting to the stage of root touch ups every two weeks, I’m looking into the process of going gray but I am so not into the skunk line. Thinking of some sort of blonde/gray streaks originating out of the part to break up the line but I’m honestly terrified. I’m more warm toned and my hair is a golden brown so the idea of coolness in a color is confusing. What do i do for makeup? I will need new color clothes.... Please show us some more women going gray and how to do it other than a skunk line and hats or pixie cut to get all the old color off. I’m not really mentally there yet.

  • I've been living with a chronic illness for over a decade. After one treatment I went about 90% grey in my 40s. (Mind you my hair was teal at the time.) So it was wild. I grew it out and it is really lovely. I've since started using Overtone and will incorporate colors. I also use purple shampoo to help keep it less brassy. Thank you Brad for having a real discussion about natural grey hair. ❤️
