Spotting a grey strand is as heartbreaking for men as it is for women. No wonder, there is a huge demand for hair dyes and colours in this sector too. While there are a range of men s hair colours and dyes, is it really required? Can t men use the same hair colour as women? We asked beauty expert Aashmeen Munjal, owner Star Salon n Spa, Delhi and here s her response.

According to her, men can safely use women s hair colour as there is no difference in the extent of chemicals used in the products. The basic contents and composition of both colours remain the same. Hence, the colour will have the same effect and last for almost the same time in both cases. The colour and chemicals in it will also cause the same kind of hair damage for both males and females.
