Should I stop coloring my hair and go GREY?
As a general rule, Mike Liang, advanced colorist at Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa in New York suggests going gray when you reach 80 percent non-pigmented or white hair.

Often people think grey hair will inevitably make them look old, but, as Paul Falltrick, Matrix Global Design Team Member points out, this isn’t necessarily the case. “It’s the salt-and-pepper shades that have more of an ageing effect, so visit your hairdresser to go for a more light-reflecting, flattering grey.”
