Question: Arleen asks: My hair is a gorgeous silvery grey all over. I’m 52 and want to color my hair Hot Pink. Do you think the grey will take on the pink?
Answer: Arleen – your grey hair will definitely absorb the shade well if you dye it hot pink because you have the added benefit of not having to bleach the hair first to pick up the color; since bleaching makes hair course and dry. If your silvery grey hair varies in shade, this will create a look of highlights when dyed. The brightness of the pink will depend on how bright of a silver your hair is: the lighter the silver, the brighter the shade. Just remember to use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner to preserve the color when washing.
