Hair Care Tips



1. Products: This  tip  can affect one's health.Check the labels to make sure you are NOT putting toxic chemicals on your scalp. Do you know which are the chemicals that can hurt you? 

Also, avoid alcohol because it dries hair out. AND silvery/white hair often can be quite dry. What would prevent you from investing in shampoos and conditioners that not only match your hair type, but also are non-toxic?

Be sure to rotate the shampoo and conditioner periodically because white hair (any hair no matter the color) responds differently to different products and this can make your hair happy.

2. Shampooing: Rinse your hair BEFORE shampooing.

When you apply the shampoo also apply personal TLC. Be mindful as you massage it *gently* with your finger tips. Remember that cleanser residue may dry your scalp/hair so rinse well.

Frequency? Many "boomers" ask a question about how often to wash our hair. That's a good one. We are still working on the answer (hands-on research) -but, as of today, we feel that,as a general rule, you may choose to wash it every day or every other day. Dry hair? Only wash silver/white hair 2-3 times a week.

NOTE: Rotate their use.

3. Conditioning:  Use non-toxic conditioners to moisturize your hair - in all of its various shades of becoming.Conditioners are excellent for providing TLC - protection and shine.Be sure to spread the conditioner evenly and leave it in for a couple of minutes before rinsing.

Do NOT put it on your scalp! It can clog pores.Then your hair suffers.

4.Drying: Use your fingers gently to untangle your hair. Blow dryers are good on low heat.When it is wet, towel dry, then try blow-drying your white hair upside-down. That way you will be sure to move the dryer around so that it doesn't scorch your hair and you can keep it at a practical distance.

5. Brushing and Combing: Avoid brushing when wet!!! It surely will damage your hair. Also, for the same reason, please consider using a natural bristle brush. Did you know that sharp tooth combs or a no-no? They not only can damage your hair and cause split ends,but they actually can scratch your scalp. That could be hurtful.

Always brush/comb with a downwards stroke.

Clean your brush and comb every week.
