Hello, gorgeous hair

Too young to go grey? Too mature to pretend like you’re not aging? If you’re coloring your grey hair, we urge you to consider platinum blonde — it’s a little younger than white, a little more chic than silver and it’s making a big comeback in hair.

Has there been a period in history when the platinum blonde look wasn’t in fashion? Marilyn Monroe made the platinum blonde look famous, but many other ladies have worn the look with great success. Jean Harlow, Betty White and Lana Turner have all worn platinum well.

In the 1950s and 60s, platinum blonde hair was popular with short, curly bobs, but today’s platinum look is all about being sleek and glamorous. Long, shining silvery-blonde locks have a little more color than your natural grey hair color, and add plenty of sophistication for the vibrant woman who’s aging with almost-natural beauty.

But doesn’t bleach cause damage?

The secret’s out — any woman can become a platinum blonde if she’s got the right bleach. Coloring grey hair causes damage that may dry hair out, creating breakage that leaves it looking unhealthy. Bleach is very damaging, and may put stress on your hair that makes it hard to achieve a sleek, glossy look of sophistication. Keep hair moisturized to prevent damage, and follow boxed dye instructions very carefully to prevent problems that occur when you’re coloring grey hair at home.

Healthy dyed hair

It’s possible to enjoy the best of both worlds: healthy hair and dyed hair. You just have to keep hair health in mind, and commit yourself to regular maintenance, to keep your locks looking lovely, even when you’re using dye to color grey hair.

  • Drink water. Drinking water helps to keep the hair hydrated, which is very important when you’re using hair dye that may strip out natural nutrients and moisture.
  • Grey hair shampoo. Use shampoo, conditioner and other hair products that are made for dyed hair. It’s not just marketing, these products are specially-made to provide more moisture to colored hair.
  • Treat hair gently. Allow hair to dry before combing it out, and use a wide-spaced comb to avoid damage. Don’t twist or bunch hair excessively. Be gentle with your hair to keep it looking glossy and pretty, something that’s doubly important when you’re coloring grey hair. Avoid using heat, like blow dryers and curling irons, to prevent hair damage.
