Going grey never looked so good! Grey hair is making a huge wave, and you might even say it’s cool to be grey now, with women and men currently seeking advice on how to grow out and care for natural grey hair rather than cover it up.
Let us introduce you to one of the biggest trends on socials at the moment — the #greyhairmovement, where women and men are opting to go au naturel in their quest for organic beauty. As Nikol from @freshbeautystudio says, “Understanding age is part of life, and it can be a really good thing if you embrace it”, and that is precisely what people are starting to do. We see accounts like @georgia_goes_grey empowering women and celebrating the process of ageing.
Trying to chase away the greys can be a lot of time, money and work, so why not embrace it! At GlamBox, we want to share some of our top products to help care for your hair as you embrace your grey hairstyle. We understand that the early days are always the hardest. You don’t just wake up one morning and go, ‘I don’t care about my grey regrowth!!’, it’s a process that can take some getting used to.
A Good Place To Start
The Goldwell Color Revive Root Retouch Powder is a great place to start. It is a smooth powder that you blend into your roots to help cover regrowth in its early stages while also absorbing oil and sebum, like a dry shampoo. It seems counterintuitive to embrace the #greyhairmovement and then cover-up, but this will help you with the initial regrowth until your greys are coming through nicely.
As we age, the melanin production that creates the colour in our hair begins to slow. This can cause other textural changes too. Products designed to revitalise mature tresses are a must to promote body and growth. You want to start conditioning with products designed specifically for mature hair types. There are specialised products that help restore nutrients and regenerate a healthy hair structure for a more youthful appearance.
Our online beauty store has a curated collection of products designed specifically for mature hair. Let us share some of our top picks to help you get started.
Biolage SmoothProof Shampoo and Conditioner
As your hair becomes grey, you might notice some textural changes to your hair. The Biolage SmoothProof Shampoo and Conditioner are the perfect duo because they are designed to thoroughly cleanse your hair while helping to detangle, leaving your hair feeling manageable and smooth.
Goldwell Dual Sense Rich Repair Treatment
As we highlighted in our ultimate hair routine post, having a treatment in your routine will make your hair goals much more obtainable. The Goldwell Dual Sense Rich Repair Treatment is designed to restore damaged hair instantly. It rebuilds the hair fibre up to 100% in 60 seconds and leaves you with that luscious healthy hair feeling. You can use this in place of your conditioner once a week to help repair and treat your hair.
Matrix Biolage ExquisiteOil Strengthening TreatmentThen there are the leave-in treatments, which help lock in hydration and protect your hair after washing. For example, the Biolage ExquisiteOil Strengthening Treatment is infused with Polynesian Tamanu Oil to strengthen and replenish thin, fragile hair. It helps boost resilience to breakage, which can be a concern with grey hair, while also helping to deeply condition and add a shine.
