WHAT CAUSES GRAY HAIR
Hair turns gray when the body stops producing melanin. This absence of pigment can make strands look white, gray or silver depending on hair’s natural color. Factors that influence what causes gray hair include aging, stress, genetics and reactions to medication. Everybody is different and will go gray in their own unique way.

HOW HAIR TEXTURE AFFECTS GRAY COVERAGE
What to Know for Covering Fine Gray Hairs
Covering grays on fine hair tends to be easier than other textures because hair isn't as "thirsty". Since strands are thinner and less dense, the color can penetrate easier. Remember that fine hair can be straight, wavy or curly - it's the hair texture not its temperament that matters.
What to Know for Covering Coarse Gray Hairs
It can be notoriously hard to cover grays on thick, coarse hair because strands are larger and tend to be dry, creating a rougher surface that rejects color. This type of hair will need to be saturated completely and may require extended processing time after color is applied (usually 5-10 extra minutes).
