What is the Best Shampoo For Gray Hair?


Gray hair signifies something different for everyone. Gray hair on men is distinguished (think George Clooney). Gray hair on women is a sign of age – in the opinion of women. The truth is, gray hair can be just as gorgeous as any other color hair, it just depends on how you work it. The first step to making your gray hair look gorgeous is to care for it with the right products, beginning with your shampoo.

The best shampoo for gray hair is moisturizing shampoo. Hair grays when it begins to lose its natural pigment. This causes the hair to become a little bit more brittle and a lot drier. Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner work to provide additional moisture to gray hair to keep it looking shiny and soft.

Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo

With an affordable price tag of only $10, this shampoo is a favorite for women with gray hair. It’s designed to keep moisture locked in to make hair look healthier. Combined with its sister conditioner, the effect is much more prominent.

Artec White Violet Color Shampoo

This shampoo is available at salons and it’s specially made for men and women with gray hair. The moisturizing portion of the shampoo keeps hair looking great, and the violet color portion helps gray look silver rather than yellowed. It’s a great choice for avoiding brittle hair that breaks easily.

Phytargent Whitening Shampoo

This is a specialty shampoo for women and men with gray hair. When yours starts to go white, silver or gray, this is the shampoo you want to use to bring out the natural highlights of your hair color. It also works to keep hair healthy by providing added moisture and protection against damaging UV rays from the sun.

The best shampoo to use is any shampoo designed to provide additional moisture. However, it’s most effective when used with conditioner for dry, damaged hair. Combine daily washing and drying with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner with a weekly at-home conditioning treatment to help gray hair look as beautiful as possible.

Finally, to keep your gray hair looking as gorgeous, soft and natural as possible, head to the salon every three to four weeks for a deep conditioning treatment with professional salon products. These deep conditioners penetrate deeply into follicles to get them as shiny and healthy looking as possible.
