Many A-list celebrities are daring to go grey. Recently, actress Salma Hayek posted a selfie on Instagram showcasing her natural grey hair. Quite a shock since grey hair is generally viewed as taboo among famous women. Comments on her post have called her ‘the perfect role model’ for embracing the natural look.
So how should you look best look after greying hair and embrace the natural look… Anabel Kingsley gives her top tips.
On average, by age 50, 50% of a person’s hair will have turned grey. We go grey when melanin (pigment) cells stop being produced. Grey hair isn’t actually grey – it’s white. It just appears grey as it is interspersed with pigmented hairs.
To improve the appearance and condition of grey hair, I suggest using a shampoo and conditioner that contain violet hues and optical brighteners. Such products help to counteract any yellow or discoloured tones and make hair look healthier and shinier. Philip Kingsley Pure Silver Shampoo and Conditioner (RRP £19 for 250ml for the Shampoo and RRP £22 for 250ml for the Conditioner). As hair becomes finer as we get older, grey hair is also often finer and more fragile. To strengthen strands, use a weekly pre-shampoo conditioning treatment, such as Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (RRP £32 for 150ml).
