Decide on your coverage level

Let’s introduce you to grey coverage!
If you want maximum coverage (90%), we recommend using the resistant mix. This will mean a stronger regrowth line, but (almost) no greys visible post colouring.
If don’t mind the ‘blended greys’ look, then the regular mix is the way to go. It will give you a soft blended coverage (70-80%).

Note: Regrowth touch ups should be done every 4-5 weeks to maintain that fresh hair feeling!

Choose your application method

As first time grey coverers, it’s safe to assume you don’t have many greys. And if you don’t regularly colour your hair, we don’t advise starting now. Instead you can use the comb on method to cover those new silver suckers, which won’t affect your natural colour.

Of course, if you want more coverage or an all over refresh, you can paint on roots and ends.

Choose a different colour for your roots and ends

Don’t get us wrong, this is not about gettting a two-toned look, it is simply a technique we use in the salon to make sure the hair doesn’t go darker over time. Frequent colouring of the hair can lead to colour build up, which makes the hair appear darker.

Chose a colour at least 1 or 2 shades lighter than your roots for your ends.

We recommend colouring the ends of your hair every second time, and no sooner than every 6 weeks.

Know the mixing ratio for best coverage

If you have trouble covering your greys or know your hair can be stubborn, we recommend using the resistant mix. It will give you up to 90% grey coverage.
If you prefer a softer blend of the greys into the hair, the regular mix will give you 70%-80% grey coverage.

Note: Regrowth touch ups should be done every 4-5 weeks to maintain that fresh hair feeling!

Choose your application method based on frequency

Depending on how frequently you colour your hair it’s important to change up your application method to get the best results.

Here’s what we recommend:

Order your starter kit

A single MIIROKO colour tube will last you 2 full regrowth applications or one all-over colour application. It’s up to you how frequently you colour your hair, but we recommend setting the schedule to every 6 weeks so that you never get caught out!

Mixing options

Stubborn greys? No problem!

how to best deal with resistant grey hair

1

Use the resistant mixing ratio

The resistant mix means there is more colour pigment in your bowl then hydrogen peroxide (developer), which will help to cover the stubborn greys. 

Mix the colour at a 1:1 ratio or 50g colour + 50g developer.

It’s really improtant to use kitchen scales when mixing as too much or not enough developer will affect the coverage. 

2

Leave the colour on for at least 30 minutes

MIIROKO hair colour can be left on to process for up to 45 minutes. How long you need to leave the colour will depend on your hair, but for most people 30 minutes should be enough to get you coverage. 

Set your timer after you have finished applying the colour to your roots.

Remember your ends won’t need as long and may require a different colour. Email us to find your best ends colour.

make the transition to embracing your greys

TRY THE STRIP METHOD

The strip method is a simple but brilliant way to grow out your grey hair without months of bad hair with a strong regrowth line.

Simply take a 2cm section along your part and apply the colour only to that section. Let the grey hair underneath grow out. When the grey hair has grown out completely simply move your part to show off your new silver fox do!

USE THE TONER MIX

Up untill now the colour you have choosen for your hair was intended to cover your greys, but now what you want is something that will blend them (to avoid the regrowth line), but not too much that you can’t see the greys. 

We recommend using the toner mix. This will give a very light coverage that will fade over time.  

  • Toner mix: 50g colour, 37g developer, 37g water
  • Application: apply on roots only
  • Timing: leave for 15-20 minutes  

.

CUT YOUR HAIR SHORT

It’s an obvious one, but growing out grey hair can take a long time. It typically takes 2 years for your hair to grow to shoulder length. So unless you are keen for years long project, we recommend cutting your hair to at least a long bob.

We should mention that we don’t advise you bleach or lighten your hair to go grey. Although some hairdressers can do this, the damage to the hair is extensive and the result often just fades to a blonde (not a grey) which can result in a tone clash for many complexions.
