This post is something that my mom will giggle at and be excited about! It’s about how I conceal the gray hairs on top of my head. Yes, believe it or not, I do have them. And yes, concealer is not only for makeup, you can use it for hair, too! Gray hair is something that I got from my mother’s side of the family. From what I remember, I already had gray hair early on in college. Something I regret doing back then was pulling them out. Why? I got more gray hair! Boo! However, I got excited when I found out that John Frieda had released a product that can blur and conceal gray hair. At first, I thought this was only for those who wanting to conceal their root regrowth, but then I found that it is also helpful for those like me who have gray hair on top. I chose the shade of Root Blur™ Colour Blending Concealer Chestnut to Espresso For Medium to Dark Brunette since I have dark hair.

Say, “Hi” to them! 😉


I find it easy to apply the concealer powder to cover my gray hair. Since I have thick, long hair, I tie my hair back. This keeps my hair from moving a lot while applying the concealer powder.


I noticed a big difference in my hair after using this concealer powder! I normally section my hair to one side so that my gray hairs don’t show. However, I’m glad that this concealer powder  will allow me to section anywhere I want, with the style I want. What I love about the John Frieda concealer powder is that it doesn’t feel like there is product on my hair; it is weightless, and doesn’t feel sticky. It also stays right where I place it until the next time I shampoo my hair. Plus, it comes with two customizable shades.


Now that we’re clear of gray hair, here’s a romantic hairstyle I did to match my pretty pink make-up. I used:

  • 1.5-Inch Curling Iron
  • 2 Small Plastic Bonds
  • Hairpins

To do this hairstyle, you’ll need to start by sectioning your hair to one side. Let some hair remain in front. Start to braid your hair, using a thickness of your choice. Tie and pin it underneath the rest of your hair. Do this on the other side as well. Finally, start to curl your hair, including the hair remaining in the front.  So simple and quick!
