As the Baby Boomers continue to age gracefully, gray hair becomes more of a reality every year! Mature hair develops as the color pigments simply weaken and fade…the hair becomes extremely porous, acting like a sponge, which is terrific for hair coloring. Ouidad explains that mature hair appears in two textures:
- Wiry and lacking pigment
- Fine and limp
Ouidad says that these two different textures actually compliment and support each other. It’s important to adapt to your changing hair color and texture – don’t fight it. Your previous haircut, styling techniques and colors may not work forever, so talk to your stylist. Certainly there is coloring to consider. But a “well-cut healthy head of silver curls looks sophisticated and regal” says Ouidad…”consider a chic short cut or a stunning cascade of long curls. Whatever style works for you, remember to limit your exposure to high heat from the blow drier, which can singe the tresses…”
