Gray hair reflects a lack of pigment. Melanin pigments are responsible for the color in your hair. These pigments are transferred to keratin, the protein that your hair is made of. The less melanin within the keratin, the more gray hair your hair will be. White hair has no melanin at all. Whether you want it or not, gray hair happens to all of us eventually.
If you choose to go natural, here are a few gray hair tips:
- Gray hair has a tendency to be frizzy, coarse and dull looking. To enhance the texture of it, you can get a hair straightening treatment. Most hair straightening treatments will leave your hair smooth, shiny and frizz-free. We are partial to the Brazilian Blowout, but if you prefer a different keratin treatment, talk to your stylist about your options.
- To keep your gray hair from turning yellow, wash your hair with a shampoo with blue or violet pigment. Use it only once a week, or else your hair might pick up a bluish hue.
- For a more dramatic look and to enhance your silver, you can also get a demi-permanent silver glaze or gloss at your favorite hair salon. Glazes are ammonia-free and are packed with conditioning agents and lots of shine. When the color glaze is the same shade as your hair, it won’t change your base color at all. A silver gloss will deposit beautiful metallic tones to emphasize what you already have and remove any undesirable yellow tones. The glaze will fade out gently and since there is no maintenance involved, you can do this at your own pace.
Embrace your gray hair when you’re ready!
