Styling Tips For Women With Gray Hair
According to recent studies from trending salons nationwide, women over the age of forty are saying "no" to hair coloring and "yes" to embracing their gray hair. If you count yourself among these fearless women, then continue reading for tips on how you can maintain your gorgeous gray locks every day.
1. Keep Hair Moisturized - The protective cuticle in your scalp will start to thin out as your hair turns gray, and this can make the strands feel coarse and leave them susceptible to damage. By choosing a moisturizing shampoo, you can soften and smooth your hair and make it appear more radiant. If you choose to use a blue tinted shampoo product once a week to counteract the yellowing caused by sun, smoke, and pollutants, try not to go overboard, since some have been known to leave behind a purple hue.
2. Be Wary of Styling Products - Gray hair can become brassy, so style your hair with clear gel and other clear styling products to neutralize the tone. Certain products can also weigh gray hair down, so stick with serums and balms if you need something to keep your hair in place without creating a buildup of product residue. Many salon experts recommend rinsing hair once a month for ten minutes with cider vinegar to remove buildup and keep gray hair from appearing dull and lifeless. Follow up with a conditioner to restore the moisture and rid your hair of any lingering smell the cider might leave behind.
3. Choose a Trendy New Hairstyle - By settling with an unflattering hairstyle, you're not only adding years to your appearance, but you're also not enhancing the beauty of your gray hair. Choose a style that flatters the angles and shape of your face. If you had a favorite hairstyle in your twenties or thirties that perfectly complimented your features, then continue the tradition. If you prefer something new, then talk to your stylist and get his or her opinions on what would suit you best. A couple of simple adjustments can make a world of difference when it comes to rejuvenating your own personal style.
