The best grey hair dye?! Makki Professional Hair Colouring mask in Grey review and before and after

Makki professional hair colouring mask Grey
I've been really interested in getting my hair a darker grey for a while now, but after Colour Freedom's Misty Grey didn't turn out as dark as I'd hoped (although it did look nice) I decided to go with a different brand. Youtuber Sophdoesnails uses the Makki Professional Hair Colouring Mask in grey and her hair looks amazing, so I decided to take the plunge and try it out.

Cost//

The tube is 200ml (for comparison, a pot of Directions is 88ml and Bleach London is 150ml) and they are £12 each, but I bought the set of one grey and one silver for £20 as I mentioned in my recent beauty haul post. It's a little more expensive than other hair dyes I've used, but you do get 200ml so it's pretty good value for money. I also only used a little bit and then diluted it so I think I'll get about 4 uses out of this hopefully.

Before//

My hair was this silvery-white shade, very light. Basically I just bleach it and then wash it with silver shampoo. I'm quite attached to this colour so I really didn't want to stain my hair permanently.

Application// 

This dye is sooo pigmented, you can see it looks almost black when you squeeze it out of the tube. The instructions suggest you apply it on its own to your hair for 3 minutes, but I diluted it with a lot of conditioner and left it on for about 20 minutes. Make sure to keep checking your hair when you're dying it though.



After//

So this is what my hair looks like after I've dyed it. The dye took to most of my hair quite nicely! It does show where my roots were a little yellow, which is to be expected as hair dye doesn't take as easily to yellow patches. My hair didn't feel parched, but it was a little drier after I'd dyed it which was weird considering I just shoved a tonne of my normal conditioner on my head. This definitely wasn't as moisturising as Colour Freedom's misty grey. (But it's waaay more pigmented so I'm not going to complain).

After one wash it had already faded a little:

Longevity//

The most important question for me was how well it faded out, and whether or not it stained my hair. Luckily it didn't stain my hair at all. It had already faded a little after two washes, and after 6 washes it had faded down to a silver which was close to my normal colour. I've redyed my hair about 4 times now and I think I've got just over a third left (although obviously you won't get as many uses out of it if you have thick or long hair, or if you don't dilute it with conditioner).

Overall//

It was exactly what I wanted! A really pigmented grey which fades out to a nice silver without staining my hair. The only issue would be that it's not the most mosturising, so you probably should do a proper hair mask after you've used it, or you could mix it with a hair mask when you put it on your hair and use it as a deep condition. As you get a few uses per bottle, I think £12 isn't too bad a price to pay for it either.

So what do you guys think? Are you still digging the granny hair trend? Do you have any silver or grey hair dye recommendations?

  1. Which one do you prefer? The silver one or the grey one?

    1. Definitely the grey one- it's so much more pigmented and washes out to a silver colour anyway. I haven't found the silver one to be very effective to be honest.

  2. How much are you putting in it? Have you tried to mix some of the silver in with the gray to see what that looks like? I just received both the gray and silver in yesterday and plan to do a swatch test for the gray, the silver, and the silver and the gray combined just to see which on I like the best.

    1. Yeah, I tried the silver and grey mixed the other day, it comes out a light grey as if you'd mixed the grey with conditioner. A swatch test is a great idea! As for how much I am putting in it, I just put the amount of conditioner I want in a bowl and keep adding the grey until I get the colour I want so I don't really know :')

  3. I am wanting to go grey again and have decided on using the Makki grey as well. i have an issue with understand what everybody puts with it though as I'm from Australia and i have noticed that some overseas people have been calling developer "conditioner" as well as normal conditioner and I'm not sure which one you are all referring to.? do you just mix it with normal hair conditioner you use when washing your hair or with hair dye developer? Any help is much appreciated, Thanks.

    1. I just use normal conditioner that you use when washing your hair :) I use Tresemm√© because it's fairly cheap, but any normal conditioner will do as long as it's white in colour :) Please don't mix this with actual hair dye developer as it doesn't need it and I think you might end up damaging your hair! Best of luck ♡
