The Best Japanese Color Depositing Shampoos for Grey Hair
Whether you want to dye grey hair, camouflage regrowth, or tone your dyed hair, color depositing shampoos are a useful tool in your kit. While regular hair dye can be harsh, require a long wait time, and run the risk of an uneven or unnatural finish, color depositing shampoos and hair treatments gradually build up color every time you wash your hair. This helps you continually cover grey hair without regrowth or annoying extra steps. Most Japanese color depositing hair treatments come with a rich formula of nourishing ingredients to create an evenly-colored, shiny, and healthy finish. In this article we’ll cover some of the best color depositing shampoos for grey hair available in Japan!
Shiseido Prior Conditioner
Shiseido Prior is an anti-aging range of cosmetics and haircare items designed to flatter mature hair and skin. The Shiseido Prior Color Conditioner is a color-depositing treatment that comes in three shades: black, dark brown, and light brown, and is designed to work in tandem with the Shiseido Prior Color Care Shampoo. The shampoo itself is not color depositing, but instead protects the color of the hair and boosts the effect of the conditioner. We recommend using both together if possible.
To use, first wash the hair with the Shiseido Prior Color Care Shampoo, just as you would with any other shampoo. After, apply the conditioner, focussing on any regrowth or areas of concern, and let sit for five minutes. This treatment is on the more subtle end of the spectrum, and needs about a week to build up. There are some benefits to this, one being ease of use. Just like building up foundation for a flawless finish, gradually building up color runs less risk of missing a spot or overdoing it. Some also say that this gives a more natural looking effect in the end.
