Grey Be Gone

We’ve all seen—and envied—the women with a gorgeous mane of grey hair.

Sadly, I am not one of them.

The grey hairs around my face are unruly interlopers with a wiry aspect more akin to bristle than silk.

Colouring seems to be inevitable rather than an option. Here’s how not to despair or take up residence at the salon: Color WOW Root Cover Up.

It’s an extremely easy to use, peroxide-free, mess-free, wax-free, and dye-free pressed mineral powder (in eight shades, from platinum to black) that covers grey hair, dark roots, and fills in hairline gaps or sparse spots for thicker looking hair. You can even use it on your eyebrows if you want.

It looks like an eye-shadow palette and comes in a slim, glossy compact with a mirror and a double-ended brush with tips of different sizes.


The pigments are outstanding: light reflective particles add sheen and shine to the hair and the shades are multi-tonal which translates to natural, dimensional results. Yet it doesn’t come out until you shampoo and even resists sweating, swimming, and rain; nor does it rub off or transfer to your clothes or pillowcase.

No wonder it’s won 44 beauty awards.

It gets my vote.

    I haven t coloured my hair for over ten years and my hair is better for it. My natural grey is a lovely colour and my hairdresser said she would like to sell it!

    There aren’t really any grey-haired women under the age of 50 in the public eye – where are the women who are genetically wired to go grey early?
