Once I reached the "over 50" mark, I knew it was time to embrace the idea of aging gracefully. I like to share beauty and health tips.

Give Gray Gentle Shine

Beautiful Hair Secrets

I have made the choice and gone gray.

After years of coloring and highlighting my hair in the hopes of covering the telltale gray and struggling with roots that had an ugly contrast of demarcation, I finally said, "enough of this." I was hoping to retain my youth, but the final effect was starting to backfire.

Eventually, the rest of you (wrinkles, sags, etc.) catches up to those sentinel graying locks, and it becomes time to embrace who you are, including how old you are. That doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying to stay healthy and vibrant, exercise, and keep young in our hearts and minds.

It just means being more natural in our beauty choices.

Selling Points of Pravana Silver Lights Shampoo

  • The ingredients: no sulfates, paraben-free, cocomide-free
  • Brightening color agent to neutralize yellow
  • Keratin amino acids, silk amino acids, and sunscreen for strength and protection
  • Cruelty-free

Secret to Beautiful Hair: The Right Shampoo

One of the challenges I had in caring for my gray hair was its different texture, which sometimes looked frizzy and dry. That look is aging no matter what your hair color. So I set about finding what I could do to make my hair look beautiful and healthy.

One of the secrets to taming frizz and cancel yellowing to use the right shampoo. When hair is gray, silver, or shades of gray, it sometimes takes on a yellow cast. Polluted air, hair products, too much sun... those and more can cause gray hair woes. A shampoo with brighteners can help retain a silvery sheen and keep the strands from looking yellowish.

Another secret to keeping gray locks looking gorgeous is to add shine. Frequent shampoos with a mild product is the basis for giving hair shine. And that brings me to what is one of the most sought for products on my page about silver fox hair (which showcases celebrities who have gone stylishly gray and many facts and tips about keeping your mature hair looking its best).

Pravana's Pure Light Line Is Deservedly Popular

What I love about Pravana Pure Light Shampoo is that it is completely sulfate-free and very mild. Frequent washing is good for keeping hair shiny and clean, but harsh products that strip it and are hard on the environment? None of us want that... making this is the ideal answer.

Optical brighteners get rid of off-cast and yellowing, special combinations of amino acids and botanicals give hair strength, with sunscreen to protect the hair. And most importantly: NO SULFATES!

I love having a shampoo that will give me great results and is free from harmful additives that can irritate the scalp ( I have sensitive skin, always have).

It is actually the great response from my readers that lead me to this product. I knew I wanted a brightening hair product, but was still experimenting, and I felt like there must be something really good about this particular brand when so many were ordering it. "Pure Light Shampoo" is one of the best toner types of shampoos that I have tried.

Lights, Action, Shine

Get rid of yellowing and brassiness! That, along with poor condition, is what makes gray hair look aging. This product line will give a brightened effect that reflects light beautifully. Of course, you can use other products, but this is the healthiest choice in my opinion.

Which Is Most Important for You?

If you have steel-gray or silver-hued locks, is it the shampoo, the conditioner, or the polish for shine that is most important to your beauty regime?

I found it necessary to have more than just one type of product to get a great look and combat the dulls and frizzies.

I find I really need a brightening shampoo, not every week, but regularly. In between, I like to use moisturizing products without any color-enhancing benefits.

So what is your most important tool for keeping your hair looking good? Use the comment box to tell all.

Keeping gray hair gorgeous is a matter of knowing how to maintain your silver locks.
More older women are finding that their hair can be stunning. No need to color it and struggle with roots that need touch-ups. Stay gray and love your healthy hair. The right shampoo and conditioner are paramount.

Questions & Answers

  • What can I use to turn my white hair silver grey?

    Whenever I hear the term "turn" for someone's color, it means using hair color. Professional services for hair coloring seems like your answer, but this is outside my topic. I advocate having your natural color and making the best of it through products and health habits.
