Silver Curly Hair: 4 Secrets on How to Care for Them
Real is beautiful, and those silver strands are part of your journey. It doesn’t matter if you are 25 or 50 because you can nail silver curly hair for sure with the proper care!
If you just decided to let silver strands grow and looking for some tips, you come to the right place. I’m going to convince you that having grey hair is not only beautiful but time-saving as well.
Silver curly hair & statistics
Statistically, women spend 36 days in the hairdressers’ chair. That’s more than a month of our lives! Crazy, right?
The good news is that if you decide to let your natural silver hair grow, you don’t need to spend that much time (and money) at the hairdresser. A good haircut and a few products are all you need.
According to one research, almost 52% of people (both men and women) are already going gray in their thirties. I mean, you only have one or two wrinkles at that age. It doesn’t mean that you will be grey by the time you are 30. Everything depends on genetics and your body’s aging process.
Why am I going gray? 3 main reasons (genetics excluded!)
If you are constantly stressed and sleep-deprived, don’t be shocked if you see a gray strand of hair. Stress damages our healthy cells, and this process can cause premature graying.
Alcohol, cigarettes, and unhealthy eating habits could also be the cause. Be sure that you are getting enough vitamin D, calcium, and zinc with your food or supplements, as these vitamins and minerals play an essential role in premature graying.
Believe it or not, air pollution and ultraviolet rays (UV) could be the reasons why people are going gray at a young age. How to prevent that? You can try to use SPF and spray your hair before going out, especially if you plan to lay at the beach.
#3 Health problems
Don’t worry, it’s very rare, but it happens. If you struggle with thyroid or pituitary gland problems, it can cause premature graying. Consult with your doctor if you feel like something is not right.
Curly gray hair over 50: a hair care routine
When you get older (and grayer), you might notice some textural changes in your hair. Other common problems with such hair are lack of shine, dullness, breakage, and unwanted yellow tones. How to avoid all of that?
Choose the right products and let your natural silver hair shine!
#1 Buy purple shampoo
Purple (or blue) shampoo helps to reduce the yellow tones in silver or gray hair. Most of them are not the best option for our hair because of sulfates, so always check the labels before buying, but I managed to find a few options that are gentle to your curls:
1. Not Your Mother’s Blonde Moment Shampoo & Conditioner
2. Deva Curl No-Poo Blue Cleanser
#2 ACV rinse for the win!
Apple cider vinegar has some magic in it! ACV rinse makes your hair shiny and less frizzy. The best part? It’s extremely cheap!
Mix 1 tablespoon of ACV with a glass of water and rinse your hair with it after your routine. Apple cider vinegar clarifies your hair, too.
Results? Soft and bright hair without yellow undertones.
#3 Deep condition your hair
Yes, I’m repeating myself, but please, don’t forget to deep condition your hair at least once a week. This ritual nourishes and moisturizes your hair, so no more breakage and dullness.
#4 Styling is important
Try styling brushes if you ever felt that your gray curly hair was unmanageable! Denman D3 is a perfect choice for every curly human being, and I can swear that you will love the results.
Voluminous ringlets are the best, and Denman brushes definitely help to define our curls. Celebrities are also using Denman D3 or D8!
Silver curly hair: the bottom line
Embrace your silver locks! Even if your hair is frizzy and dull at the time of reading this, it still has the potential of looking fabulous.
Use moisturizing products, don’t forget to incorporate some proteins into your routine and deep condition regularly. Gray hair is fantastic, and it’s a part of your journey, too.
