    Is anyone can wear grey hair color ?

    Far from being old fashioned, grey hair comes back in force ! For the ones who already have silver strands, keep it. The natural process of canities – grayness of the hair - is not a fatality ! On the contrary, it is the opportunity to jump ahead and to adopt the total silver color !
    Women with brown and blonde hair can wear that color by bleaching their hair but neither the brunettes or the ginger can have it at risk of losing their pretty hair. Indeed, the more the hair contains melanin the more difficult it is to bleach the hair ! It is the eumelanin which determines the color of the hair depending of its melanin concentration. The more important is the quantity of melanin the more the hair is dark and vice versa. A small concentration of black eumelanin will give grey hair.
    That's why, during the process of artificial bleaching, the hydrogen peroxide goes through different steps and gives to darker hair a reddish color then orange, yellowish and finally white. If you don't want to look sad, don't hesitate to dress with many colors and to accentuate your makeup with acidulous colors !
