Have you ever been in between appointments and needed a quick fix to cover a few sparse gray hairs?
- ColorMark: ($19.95) Real temporary hair color. Not a mascara. Not a crayon. Will not flake or rub off. Twelve shades.
- Sharpie indelible pens: They come in a variety of colors, but Brown, Black, Red, Burgundy and Dandelion (for blondes) should cover most of the hair color categories, but we've seen a lot of punk pink in the last year -- but not on women over 40.
- DIY - Mascara Wand: Blonde-maned women can wash off an old mascara wand and dip it in beige foundation to hide the unwanted gray hair.
I used ColorMark and thought I was looking fine, and my friend Franci said, "What is that glob in your hair?" Moral of the story: Use sparingly.
I am looking forward to giving a Sharpie pen in Dandelion a test drive on my blonde locks very soon.
Let me know if you have had any experience with covering your gray hair in between salon appointments.
