Long time, having gray hair was associated with getting old or poor grooming, today they have become a must and even many celebrities are adopting them into their lifestyle in a glorious way.
The pandemic put us in front of a dilemma when it comes to coloring our hair, the trend of leaving hair natural has helped many women feel more free and happy to show them off.
Celebrities like Andie Mac Dowell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Salma Hayek, Jamie Lee Curtis, Cameron Diaz and an endless list of artists today raise their hands so that the stereotypes of always painting your hair disappear and beauty can be appreciated from another angle.
And it is that wearing natural hair is also a form of female empowerment, wearing gray is not only a trend, it also represents strength, security and pride for many women who decide to break with beauty standards and show the world that the passage of years is also a celebration and you have to show it with a smile.
The gray blending As the transition trend is known to gradually adapt your gray hair to your natural hair, it is a style in vogue, more and more requested in beauty salons.
We spoke with Miguel Capio from @Berusstisaloon who is a dermocapillary therapist to explain us about the subject.
What are gray hair?
They are hair that does not have melanin, melanin is what gives us color in general, in the skin, hair and hair. They are generally thicker and rougher than normal or “colored” hair. That is why it is more difficult to control them since they are a bit more rebellious.
Since when do they appear?
There is no age or range for these to become present, they can appear at any time, there are cases that in children or adolescents gray hair begins or on the contrary there are adults who do not have a single gray hair.
Remember that they appear when there is no longer as much melanin production, then the hair turns gray or white.
The advice we can give you is Love them and take care of them so that they always look perfect!
What product would be the right one?
There are some cases that gray hair turns yellowish, not so bright or silver / white, that is why we recommend using an antioxidant shampoo and it would be best to have a shampoo with a purple pigment for daily use, to give it a slight tint and remove those unwanted tones.
How do you do the gray blending?
It is a technique to gradually adapt the gray to your natural hair, the idea is to leave a grayish tone little by little and that it can be camouflaged with the natural tone, you have to reach the highest height of the discoloration.
A cold shade is used and the most important thing is to do it gradually with a high quality bleach, I recommend the one made with collagen
