Everyone should know by now that I’ve had grey hair most of my life! Practically all of my life. I’ve written about it a few times (if you’re new to my blog welcome! Please catch up and read about my hair journey).
But I realized that I never really share how I specifically maintain my greys. I mean, grey hair care should be a main topic on my blog right, #KanyeShrugs! Anyone who has grey knows that them buggers are pesky, have loads of personality and often don’t listen to anything we tell them.
I get a lot of emails proclaiming that my hair is fabulous (thanks) and asking how I keep them shiny and silver.
I’ve managed to create a routine that works for me and my greys. Take what you want out of this and make it your own. It’s not the grey hair bible so if your hair falls out because of something I recommended…don’t sue me, seek medical attention immediately!
Here’s a quick “get shiny greys” DIY solution that I use in my hair every two weeks:
- Mix equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide, water and your favorite conditioner in a spray bottle.
- Spray clean, damp, non-conditioned hair with the mixture.
- Comb through the hair with a wide-toothed comb or pick. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing.
- Repeat once a week to prevent buildup.
So my secret is out! That’s how I keep my hair shiny. Also, even though I get blow outs often, I avoid heat as much as possible. It will turn your hair a brassy brown gross eww kinda color. I’ll put that secret in a separate post!
