    Just for men, hair colouring 20th Mar 17 at 9:57 PM
    For years there has been the Just for Men hair colour to get rid of grey. This weekend I was at the cinema and saw an advertisment for a shampoo which eliminates grey over the course of a few shampoos.

    Again it was 'for men'.

    So what makes it so special that its just for men? Why is there no female equivalent? Or am I missing something obvious.

    Something obvious. Women will spend loads of money at the hairdressers getting a bit of grey covered, much more profit in providing those products. Men couldn't be arsed with that but might try a simple shampoo if either the wife / girlfriend or both suggested it, or they wanted to attract a younger bit of totty. Simples.

    I'm tempted to give it a try tbh

    I've been growing out a permanent colour for two years but I'm still growing through 2 tone. I don't want to go permanent colouring again so something that only works while it's being used sounds like a good idea
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
