I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t planning on missing out on coloring appointments for the foreseeable future. The inch or two of gray hair sprouting from my roots wasn’t expecting it either, but here we are. Maybe you’ve always been gray and glorious. Maybe now is the time you’re taking the silver plunge. Either way, we rounded up the best products for anyone who’s ready to have their best gray hair.
The key to finding the perfect specialized shampoo and conditioner? Look for purple products that will keep gray hair from turning yellowish, as well as conditioners that can prevent your hair from getting coarse. Something to be aware of when it comes to gray-focused hair products is that they’re not all safe for daily use. If you’re not someone that shampoos every day, don’t worry about it.
One of our favorite, affordable brands? L’Oreal! You don’t have to splurge to get great haircare, and their shampoo and conditioner is sulfate-free too.
It’s no secret that I love Better Not Younger. The brand focuses on how aging hair has different needs, and makes sure to give all hair the proper nourishment it needs post-menopause. The Gray Hair collection brightens and conditions, with an emphasis on soft, silky hair that is harder to get with gray.
Virtue Haircair also focuses on volumizing thin hair, another problem many of us face as we age. Their full discovery set comes with shampoo, conditioner and a Keratin serum that repairs hair with each use!
Kerastase’s anti-brass purple shampoo is paired with a strengthening conditioner, so you’ll truly have the best and strongest hair fo your life. After all, French women always have perfect hair, don’t they?
