Gray hair tends to have unique characteristics and requirements compared to pigmented hair. Here are our care tips specifically tailored for gray hair:

  • - Hydration with Kerastase Blond Absolu, Nutritive or Genesis: Gray hair tends to be more prone to dryness and can benefit from extra moisture. Use hydrating shampoos and conditioners formulated for dry or aging hair to keep your gray locks nourished and supple.

  • - Regular Conditioning Treatments- Kerastase Elixir or Genesis are our favorites: Consider incorporating deep conditioning treatments into your hair care routine once or twice a week to help maintain moisture levels and keep your gray hair soft and manageable.

  • - Protective Styling: Gray hair can be more susceptible to damage from heat styling tools and environmental factors.

  • - UV Protection Layer On Pureology Color Fanatic: Just like pigmented hair, gray hair can also be affected by sun exposure. Use hair care products that offer UV protection or wear a hat when spending extended periods in the sun to prevent your gray hair from becoming dry or brittle.

  • - Regular Trimming- Schedule In Advance: Keep your gray hair looking its best by scheduling regular trims every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends and maintain its shape and health.

  • - Use Purple Shampoo like Redken Blondage: Gray hair is prone to yellowing or dullness over time due to environmental factors and buildup. Incorporate a purple or silver-toned shampoo into your routine once a week to help neutralize any yellow tones and keep your gray hair looking vibrant and fresh.

  • - Gentle Styling with Heat Protectant and Nourishing Serum like Kerastase Elixir & Redken Acidic Gloss Leave In: Gray hair may be more fragile than pigmented hair, so be gentle when styling to minimize breakage. Avoid pulling or tugging on your hair and opt for wide-tooth combs or brushes designed for gentle detangling.

  • - Balanced Diet: Ensure you're getting a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals essential for healthy hair, such as vitamin E, biotin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Consider incorporating supplements if necessary, but consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplements.

  • By following these care tips, you can help keep your gray hair looking its best and maintain its health and vitality as you embrace its natural beauty.
