I used regular VO5 when I colored my hair, better than "hair polishes" and then switched to the silver haired version. It is a quick way to shine up your strands while adding a silvery glow.
I now have longer length locks and the creme with blue tint holds my hair in place to reduce flyaways as well as give shine. Internally, stress is one of the greatest enemies to your overall health, including your hair's health.

I thought I would create a timeline of sorts with the most asked questions from acquaintances. These are things I wondered about myself, before taking the big step. I felt for a long time that the look of a face and neck of a 50 or 60 something and the hair of a twenty-something is out of sync. I made the decision that when that disconnect seemed to be approaching I would stop coloring my hair. Happily, this decision coincided with the appearance of many attractive and influential women in the beauty world who also decided to "go gray.
I thought, "I am sure there are lots more women who want this look and just need a little encouragement.
It wasn't hard, I just let the hair grow, and scheduled haircuts to keep the style and shape. A fresh haircut helps avoid that awkward "halfway point".
I have had both supportive and admiring comments, but then there was the time when a kid behind me in the grocery line phoned his mom that he was "standing behind the old lady.

Hydrogen peroxide serves to kill bacteria, but as we age it builds up in the body. Researchers in UK found that this buildup causes the hair to turn gray.

As you can see from the many products on this page, I like to change things up. It isn't that I am always looking for something different, but I find that rotating the shampoo and conditioner lines brings better results. On a trip out west I noticed the need for more conditioning, while in my own home state where high humidity rules I have more need for serums to smooth my hair.

And because of all the environmental yellowing, knowing which products will restore a clear tone to the hair is one secret that will work wonders for your style.
Some beauty tips are ageless: But there are a few tips that are especially important for gorgeous gray hair. One that is mentioned often is the use of a blue tinted hair product. Another is regular use of an effective hair conditioner- maybe more than one to keep hair soft and shiny.
Carefully brushing or combing to prevent split ends and a good haircut doesn't hurt, either. Healthy hair also means going easy on heat applications through hair curling or straightening. I've been see-sawing between mid-length hair and trying to grow it out. Like every other color, growing hair longer while trying to keep it looking in shape and stylish is a challenge. I recently cut off the length and had my hair layered. It looks shinier and better groomed, which is important for gray hair.
A beauty secret to take better advantage of is to have a great cut. Not liking to fuss with hair, a medium length has always worked well for me, but no matter the length we choose, keeping the cut sharp and in shape makes the difference in how good gray hair looks.
Consider trying a new shampoo made just for white and silver hair to really stand out and make a white hot statement.

If you are sensitive to perfumes, there are products for you that might be different.
Oils can cause yellowing, so strike a balance between the need to condition hair and overloading it with possible yellow cast. If you use a whitening agent every once in awhile, that will help. I felt that using coconut oil to condition did not discolor my hair. Argan oil might be slightly yellowing verdict not in on that, yet , but good for conditioning.
