Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream is available in a wide variety of natural-looking colors, as well as blue and purple. Enriched with Argan oil, mango, shea butter and coconut butter, this dye is especially hydrating for gray hair, which tends to be drier and more brittle than normal hair.

Clairol Age Defy is specially formulated for gray hair to easily absorb and comes with a smoothing pre-treatment and Pro-V Colorseal conditioner to help lock in color and increase softness. A wide variety of hair colors are available to match most natural shades.

L'Oreal Excellence Age Perfect is designed specifically for use on gray hair. The dye reacts differently with gray hair than normal hair, which creates natural-looking highlights and lowlights. Pro-Keratine complex in the dye encourages volume and shine. This dye is easy to apply with the included application brush.

Darker shades draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles, so choose a lighter shade for a more youthful look. For the most color absorption in color-resistant gray hairs, leave on dye for the maximum time listed in the package instructions.
