Are you struggling to keep your Grey Hair Moisturized? 7 tips to make it work.

Hey TKN Beauties,

If you are starting to see gray hairs, don’t have any at all, or if you already rock a gray crown, you probably still have some questions about gray hair. So here's a guide to learning a little more about it...

 

1. Be more careful with your hair than you’re used to.

Gray hairs have reduced strength and elasticity, making them very breakable. Be careful of over-styling or using too much heat, both of which will be more damaging than before.

If your hair feels especially weak or brittle, try a protein treatment every 4 to 8 weeks. Protein treatments can help strengthen your hair and improve elasticity.

2. Moisture is more important than ever before!

Grey hair tends to be more dry, so be diligent with conditioners and moisturizers. Always use oils to seal in moisture, use a daily leave-in conditioner or Nora's Leave in Spray, and if you’re still struggling with dryness, deep condition more often- even up to once a week.

We recommend Yes Moisture Collection which includes a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner Keratin-Biotin is known for its moisturizing properties, and we've formulated these products specifically to hydrate and moisturize dry hair.

3. Avoid conditioners or hair products with mineral oil.

Mineral oil coats your hair, weighing it down and making it more difficult for moisture to penetrate your gray hair. Mineral oil is important to avoid, but there are other ingredients you should avoid in hair products. Always read the label and check out the list of ingredients to avoid in hair products.

4. Avoid harsh shampoos and other chemicals that can dry out your hair.

Not only can shampoo dry out gray hair that is already vulnerable to dryness, but shampoos with sulfates can actually cause discoloration of gray hair! But don’t eliminate shampoo completely. You still need to use a clarifying shampoo to remove mineral buildup in your hair. That mineral buildup can actually be the cause of discoloration or yellowing of gray hair. Try this Nora's Restoring Shampoo.

5. Take extra precautions to protect your hair from UV radiation.

UV radiation is always a risk to natural hair, but it can be especially damaging to grey hair. Wear hats or scarves if you know you’ll be out in the sun for a while.

6. Gray hair can look dull or less vibrant than it used to. Vitamin E Oil can help with shine!

If your gray hair is lacking vibrancy, try our Nora's Replenishing Protein Conditioner, which feature Vitamin E Oil and contains other natural oils to help keep your hair moisturized, strong, and shiny.

7. A healthy body is the key to healthy hair.

Be sure to exercise regularly and fill your diet with nutrients, protein, and water, which will ensure your hair gets everything it needs to grow. Not sure where to start? Learn more about foods to eat for healthy hair.

Conclusion
Figuring out gray hair can be a challenging. The new texture and pattern of your hair can make your go-to styles difficult, and if you’ve been using the same tried and true regimen for years, you may need to start over and create a completely new regimen for your changing hair. Be patient with your hair and yourself, and treat this challenge as a new journey and adventure.
