I've heard that if you bleach it a little whiter, then use a purple wash (like what it used to keep brassy tones out of blonde hair), it'll make your hair a serious silver.

I think Paula Deen's silver/grey hair is absolutely beautiful. I wonder what her original hair color was when she was younger? I'm just starting to go grey, but if I could have Paula's kind of grey I would definitely speed up the process!

I have used the wella toner at the beauty shop and really liked it. the beauty supply store will not sell toner to any one without a lic. I would love to touch up my ends without going to the salon. the lower half of my hair is still bleached blonde so a nice toner would even it out. I shall see if I can find some of the glorious grays. is that a die or a rinse? toner? thanks.

My sister-in-law has that color hair, and although it makes her look way older than she is, it is definitely prettier than the darker grey or the salt and pepper look.

I think it's time to write some of these manufactures of the need for the color range of grays again. There is alot of baby boomers and younger want to be's that are looking for a dye that is in the grays range. Lets work together to write them.

My friend has used a Clairol rinse for many years; but I think Pantene has Silver Expressions that is supposed to work well also.

Ok so I have some questions and hope someone can help. I noticed my first grey hair at 18 and now at 35 my roots grow in grey. So I have decided since its a hot trend right now to go silver I will embrass my natural color. I had two choices cut my hair and let it grown back or bleach the heck out of it. Since my husband didnt want it that short we went for the bleaching ,first it was orange then yellow orange to yellow I wanted to do one more bleaching but my scalp could not take the burning final step was we used a cooling violet toner by wella and got a light grey color but you could see the yellowish tint to it. We went after that to salon centric and got chromasilk vivids in silver I just applied it and you can still see the yellow alittle and now my hair is blueish grey what should I do if anything
