Silveristas know that embracing our hair is empowering and beautiful! If you’re considering embarking on your own silver journey but have some concerns, check out our second entry in a series to debunk some of the most common myths about silver and gray hair!

 

Myth #2: Silver Hair Requires High Maintenance

It’s true that silver and gray hair does require specific care, but it’s a simpler and more cost-effective process than constantly covering your silver and gray hair. With the right products and routines, maintaining silver hair can be simple and manageable. Below is a list of ingredients to avoid in silver and gray shampoos and conditioners:

 

  • Purple dyes - External D&C Violet No. 2 or Ci 60730 are the active ingredients in purple shampoos. These dyes are easily absorbed by silver and gray hair, resulting in purple or blue overtones.
  • Sulfates & Phosphates - Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and disodium phosphate are powerful detergents commonly found in laundry products. They strip your hair follicles and scalp of natural oils, leaving hair dry and brittle.
  • Parabens – Can disrupt hormones and cause skin irritation.
  • Silicones – Lead to product build-up and weight hair down.

 

For some, the decision to embrace their silver hair was a bold and daring move to embrace their authentic self and challenge societal norms. For others, it was an easy progression into a new stage of life. Regardless of your journey, silver and gray hair offer a unique opportunity for self-expression and creativity. By debunking myths and outdated stereotypes, we hope to empower others to embrace their silver hair with confidence and pride!
