Just as your skin changes as you mature, so does your hair. Once hair stops producing melanin (i.e. turns silver/white), it becomes drier, more brittle, and wiry. Oftentimes the texture of the silver hair is also different from your previous hair.
HAIR CARE TIP - Re-evaluate your hair product choices and regimen. Eliminate ingredients known to cause dryness - phosphates, sulfates, DEA and ‘bad’ alcohols. Use products with nutrient-rich botanicals that address your current hair concerns like coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and jojoba oil.
