What is the best hair dye for grey hair?

Fact: not all hair dyes are going to cover up grey hair. It takes the most powerful pigments and specialised formulas to keep those stray silver hair strands under wraps. So, if you're on the lookout for some quick camouflage to blend away salt 'n' pepper sections, we've got the perfect hair products for you. Introducing the best hair dye for grey hair...

If you want all-over grey coverage...

If you want to cover grey hair and work a new shade from root to tip, you need a box dye designed for all-over coverage. Whether you're working with a blonde hair colour, brown shades or ultra-radiant reds, discover these at-home hues for root-to-tip flawlessness...

For vibrant colour in the widest array of shades

Try: Clairol Nice'n Easy Permanent Hair Dye

With so many red, brunette, black and blonde shades to choose from, finding a colour match in the Clairol Nice'n Easy collection is, well, pretty nice ’n easy. This means trending shades or classic hues are available to you, and you can even switch from one colour to the next as the seasons fly by.

Plus, here’s the important bit: Nice'n Easy gives you 100 percent grey coverage, so whether you have grey roots or all-over silver strands, you can veil them in your shade of dreams. This permanent colour also harnesses our breakthrough ME+ Colour Molecule, which better protects anyone without a hair dye allergy by reducing the chance of developing one. It's a win-win.

If you want to cover grey roots...

PSA: You don’t need a professional colourist to cover up grey roots and regrowth. You can actually do a root touch-up at home, as long as you have the right products to hand. So, what's your pick: a permanent dye, a temporary root spray or hair makeup? Here's the lowdown on each of your options, so you can make the right choice for your hair...
