Ardell Gray Magic is a unique way to cover resistant gray hair, and bring vibrancy and intensity to ALL hair color.


Gray Magic Color Additive can be added to ANY color formula to achieve vibrant color and exceptional gray coverage. Formulated to help hair color penetrate deeper into cortex. Is also great for toning down ash (green) tones. Adds "punch" to red hair color formulations and helps to alleviate chlorine discolorations.


Gray Magic work works because gray hair is the result of the loss of red and yellow color pigment. Gray Magic adds concentrate red and yellow with wetting agents to replace the lost color pigment and moisture, to 'lock-in' hair color. When added to shampoos or conditioners, will prevent fading and oxidtation for tinted red or warm colors (10 drops per ounce of shampoo or conditioner).
Use ten drops for every ounce of hair color.

No gray coverage at all The grays at my temples were just as obvious with this product as without. So, a waste of money. Just found No Gray (another additive) and 100% gray coverage! woot! April 24, 2015
Great product! I have been coloring my hair (covering the gray) for about 10 years. In the last few months, my grays have become very stubborn and resistant to color, no matter what brand of color I used or how long I left the color on. Searched online and bought Gray Magic at Sally after reading the reviews. Used it last night with "drugstore" color and it made SUCH a difference! I purchased the small bottle, rather than the packet that is seen here. It was on sale and I'll have plenty of product for another 4 or 5 colorings, at least. I followed the package directions and mixed a 1-to-1 solution of color and developer, adding 5 drops of the Gray Magic. Yes, it does stain your fingers orange, so put your gloves on when you are ready to add it to the 1-to-1 solution. (However the stain came off after a few hand-washings.) I, too, was apprehensive when the "tint" solution turned orange, but went ahead and painted it on the areas where I have my most stubborn grays (crown and the part in my hair). Then I mixed the remainder of the color and developer, adding 20 drops of Gray Magic. It turned orange too, but after a bit, the color normalized. I applied this mixture to the rest of the hair at the root level on my crown, the more resistant hair on my head. Waited 30 minutes and applied the remaining mixture to the rest of my hair so that the color would be even. The verdict - complete coverage of the gray!! I could see a slight color gradient between the tinted resistant root area and the rest of the hair, but nothing I will complain about. I used a cooler shade of color to compensate for the red tones that other reviewers mentioned. Gray Magic is MAGIC in a bottle! February 2, 2015
stubborn grays be gone with gray magic!! i dye my dark brown hair black, and sometimes drugstore colors dont cover stubborn grays at all or enough, so that they are still gray after coloring or come out lighter then the hairs around 'em and just don't look right. that's where gray magic comes in and covers em everytime for even, dark, youthful color. the bottle could be a little bigger but i usually get two if there's a bogo sale because i apply it with weekly touch ups :) August 23, 2014
Fantastic I used this with a clairol hair color and it seriously covered these stubborn grays of mine....i used black dye and my edges(where it is very difficult to color) very black...I added this to my dye 20 drops and it did turn my dye an orangey i was definitely worried but the outcome was fantastic...i don;t have the package ones the other reviews are talking about i have a little 7ml/0.25 container...i think i got this at the checkout counter with stuff on sale....I will definitely purchase more of this... also saying does seriously stain one's skin....

Yes, but only add about ten drops to your hair color tint according to Sally's site. If you have a sensitive scalp beware of red/orange tones. Do a patch test and you might be just fine.
