The silver-blonde — and even ash grey hair — color trend definitely peaked a couple of years ago, and while I still think it’s one of the coolest statement hair colors you can sport, it’s incredibly difficult and costly to maintain. Unfortunately, if you’ve noticed a few strands (or even patches) of grey hairs cropping up in sharp contrast to your chestnut, butter blonde, or copper locks, you know that a few silver “highlights,” you probably agree with me in that they’re simply not as cool as a fully-intentional, all-over silver mane. Look, I’m personally a fan of the natural grey head of hair that’s been gracefully grown-out and embraced, but if you’re like so many of us with a few subtle, yet oh-so-noticeable course grey hairs that simply won’t cooperate, you know that keeping these strays at bay in-between color jobs is more than just a slight nuisance ⁠— it feels like a second job. Sure, no one else may notice them (allegedly), but when you’re standing in front of the mirror you do — and let’s be honest, it’s downright maddening.

Fortunately, if you’re not willing to do weekly DIY dye jobs in your bathroom to keep grey growth at bay (and we don’t blame you), there are a few color-correcting shampoos for grey hair coverage you can add to your hair care roundup to tone down the distinct contrast of stubborn grey strands. While these at-home solutions may just be a temporary fix, they’ll definitely help you push back your next appointment, so you can save money and time by not having to check in with your colorist a bi-monthly schedule.
