Tips to Look Radiant with Your Silver Locks:
Take care of the health and shine of your white hair
Some women may complain of feeling that their hair has become weak and dry after turning white. In reality, your hair hasn’t changed much, it just needs more moisture since there is no melanin present, which means that hair follicles produce less of the natural oils that hair needs, leading us to believe that the hair has become dry. You will need to use oil and cream treatments, and you may also want to switch your shampoo and conditioner to ones that are more moisturizing and nourishing for your hair. Be sure to use a hair dryer on a low heat setting so as not to damage your hair and cause split ends, or use products that help retain moisture in your hair while styling it with a hair dryer. We recommend two products here to help restore the softness and vitality of your hair.
On the other hand, take care of your hair health in terms of the type of food you consume. Protein will help strengthen your hair, so choose eggs, dairy products, chicken, and fish. Iron also contributes to hair growth and stimulates healthy hair follicles, so make sure to consume leafy vegetables and some red meat or lentils.
Also, vitamin A creates natural oils in the scalp, which is a natural moisturizer. So don’t forget to consume sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash. Vitamin C helps in collagen production and iron absorption, and blueberries, broccoli, oranges, and potatoes are excellent sources of vitamin C. Omega-3 also provides oil to maintain the moisture of your scalp and hair, by adding salmon, avocado, and walnuts to your diet.
Get rid of yellow, orange, or brassy tones in hair
The copper or orange tint in your white or silver hair can give you an undesirable appearance and may even make you look older than your actual age. In this case, you should try using a purple shampoo or conditioner once a week to neutralize the yellow or orange tones.
Choose a suitable haircut
It’s always said that the most suitable hair length for white hair is shoulder-length, which makes the bob, pixie, and garrison haircuts popular choices. In addition, medium-length layered hair is a hairstyle that highlights the face for a sophisticated and modern look. Avoid long hair as it accentuates any wrinkles on the face. You can also use colorful hair accessories to add vibrancy to your look.
Take care of your scalp
Taking care of your scalp using the right products and continuous massage will give you healthy hair, which is what we all want regardless of hair color. However, with silver or white hair, make sure to massage your scalp to avoid dry or brittle hair. Massaging also helps the scalp promote healthy hair growth and follicles, which will protect you from hair loss or thinning.
Pay attention to your makeup
Remember to avoid makeup that gives you a nude look, as it may not be suitable for you anymore, even if it suited you in the past with your colored hair. Also, steer clear of makeup shades that may carry a yellowish tone or golden shades, whether in lipstick, eyeshadow, or blush, as they will give you a dull look.
Red is always appropriate in lipstick, you just need to choose the shade that suits you… Yes, you should try it now even if you didn’t like this shade before, you’ll find it now one of the shades that suit you best. Among the lipstick colors you should also try are light pink and dark purple. Always apply eyeliner to define your eyes or you can also opt for smoky eye makeup, as it will add more sparkle to your silver locks.
Yes, thick dark eyebrows that match your natural hair color will provide the desired contrast with your silver strands and revive your dull complexion. And if you have sparse eyebrows, you should fill in the gaps with a suitable color. If your eyebrows are short, you can always extend them to match the shape of your face.
Appropriate clothing here refers to trendy clothes that showcase your physical fitness with a healthy and active body. Clothing not only makes you look younger but also feminine, with delicate details that highlight your attractiveness. Pair it with accessories featuring colorful, red or blue gemstones, or pearls.
Your clothing colors will vary
Usually, you will find yourself needing to change some of your usual clothing colors and adopt colors that do not make your skin look dull with silver or white hair color. If you are a fan of warm colors, red is a strong color that will not only make your skin vibrant, but also give you a sense of self-confidence. You always have the safe choice of black and white colors. But avoid creamy, beige, and khaki colors, as they will reflect yellow on your silver or white hair, giving an older appearance and a sense of neglecting hair care.
Don’t be afraid of bold and strong colors like royal blue, emerald green, and hot pink. In jeans, light shades of denim will always suit you.
On the other hand, we do not say completely avoid pastel or nude colors, but only choose the shade that suits your hair and skin color without making your skin look dull and without giving yellow shades on your hair.
Finally, don’t forget your smile and confidence in yourself
Your confident smile from the heart is what will make your eyes sparkle, along with your spirit and enthusiasm. All of this adds more to your personality and reflects on what people see, giving you a different charm.
And remember one thing, white hair is just a color like any other hair color, and not a sign of aging. All it needs from you is some care and following some tips regarding clothes and makeup, just like what is required of you when dyeing your hair in red or yellow.
