Hair Color Needs Gray Coverage Content Block Permanent What to Use

What To Use

For standard gray coverage, apply your favorite permanent color, like Olia or Nutrisse. Both options offer 100% gray coverage, rich color and shiny, silky hair. If you have stubborn grays (too stubborn for regular color), try Nutrisse Ultra Coverage—our first at-home hair color solution with CoverPlus technology, specially formulated for 100% coverage on hard-to-cover, extra-resistant grays.

How To Use

Apply the color only at your roots, let it develop for the time on your instruction sheet, then pull it through your hair to blend andrevamp your look. To ensure complete saturation of stubborn grays, massage or comb the color as needed into resistant strands, then follow regular timing and rinsing instructions"
