Nexxus Color Assure Prewash Primer

I found my first gray hair when I was 16. As you can imagine, I was completely and utterly horrified and promptly grabbed the tweezers to pluck it out. This started a cycle that went on for a few years. I’d frantically search my roots and pluck out any white ninjas that tried to stealthily sneak …
