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? Kristin Ess’s self-titled haircare line, available at Target. The celebrity hairstylist has made a line that smells amazing, and works even better. Plus, the shampoo and conditioner comes wrapped up in pretty pink packaging.
It’s no secret that I love drybar. There’s just nothing better than a fresh blowout. While I won’t be able to do that any time soon, I can still get the same feeling from their products. Their Blonde Ale shampoo and conditioner focuses on brightening that’s perfect for grays and blondes alike.
SACHAJUAN’s silver shampoo and conditioner has modern, minimalist packaging, but it also will help with increasing volume. Of course, there’s the usual purple formula to prevent hair from becoming brassy. But there’s also UV filters to prevent the sun from fading your color.
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?
