It might do. I'd get a good brand though, or get it done at the hairdressers rather than over the kitchen sink. :roll:

Sounds like it could be stress related though. Is there anything stressful going on for you at the moment? Or is it running in your family?

I wouldnt worry about it too much! I had quite a lot of grey hairs at 16, I'm 23 and it's not much worse now but I think people stress about grey too much! Most at-home hair dyes will tell you on the box whether they cover greys.

I would highly recommend Nice and Easy "root touch up". I just have to do the top of my head and it's so much easier than doing a full head of hair. There colours blend with most of the other major brands too. It tells you on the box what they match with

i think its just genetic unfortunately :( my dad went bald at the age of 19! I was going to buy a box dye but I think I will get it done properly in the hairdressers.. Thanks for that recommendation ill keep it in mind :) Its not my roots though there is loads of random grey dead hair all over my head and it seems to just be getting worse!

I have another question, if I dye my hair a dark redish colour would it cover the grey? And will it fade easily in the sun cos i plan on dying it right before i go away :/ ?

Your hair will dry out a bit if you dye it just before holiday, better to do it a couple of weeks before
If you use a permanent dye the sun shouldn't fade it and it will cover the grey
Get advise from the hairdresser on colours for your hair type
