I wanted to cover first greys without permanent hair dye because of the regrowth that shows when using them. I tried a few non-permanent hair colours and found three that perform well, the third being my favourite.

Indola Colour Mousse For Covering Grey Hair

The first is a leave-in colour mouse by Indola. This isn’t available in shops, I’ve looked and can’t find it anywhere other than Amazon.

Indola Colour Style Mousse Pearl Beige

The Pearl Beige colour option is my favourite for covering grey hair, although there are plenty of other shades available to try.

Some people say the darker colours stain bed linen slightly, although it does wash out. The pearl beige colour didn’t do this.

I found this one pretty good at subtly blending in greys making them less noticeable, it’s super quick and easy to use.

Schwarzkopf Colour Refresher Mousse For Covering Grey Hair

This non-permanent hair dye mousse is called: Schwarzkopf LIVE Colour Refresher Mousse for Cool Browns

Schwarzkopf LIVE Colour Mousse Cool Brown

It is non-permanent and available in a variety of shades. I find this one good at covering grey hair but not as convenient to apply as the Indola mousse.

It needs to be applied to the hair, then left for 3 minutes and rinsed off before blow-drying.

Not all stores stock this product, although it was still available on eBay at the time of writing this post. You may need to search the site as the availability changes frequently.

If cool brown isn’t available I use the warm brown version, although this has a lot more red pigment in it.

I tend to use the colour refresher a couple of times a week and the colour mousse each time I wash my hair because it helps with styling and controls static hair.

Out of the two, my favourite is Indola Colour Mousse. You can find the best prices and view the colour range on Amazon.

Leganza Coloring Conditioner

Leganza colouring conditioner tops the lot and is my absolute favourite. I use the Chestnut colour, number 32 and more recently have tried Bitter Chocolate, number 31 as it has less red pigment and suits my dark hair. There are plenty of other shades to choose from.

To start with you do need to leave it on for around 45 mins, the times vary for the shade you are using.

It leaves the hair super soft and silky. After a couple of uses, I’ve found I only need to apply it when I wash my hair and leave for a few minutes and the colour seems to hold.

I think this is a great natural alternative to hair colouring without any nasty chemicals.

Take a look at some of the reviews regarding Legaza. Like the Indola above, I can’t find this in the shops so have to buy it from Amazon. If it’s not available there, I get it on eBay.
