Some people confidently wear their silver hair like a badge of honour – and we’re all for it! If you are ready to let your hair age naturally but still want to parade locks that are vibrant and shiny, then keep reading. Below, the Rossano Ferretti Parma team shares tips for embracing grey hair and improving its health to prevent the unwanted dull and lifeless “ageing grey” look.
Did you know?
Grey hair is not actually grey. Pigmented hair and white hair with no pigment in the strands meld together to give an overall appearance of grey. This is the transitional state of our locks before they turn completely white.
Grey hair can often feel coarse, brittle, and rigid. However, with the right professional haircare products at your disposal, you can nourish your silver crown and hydrate it so that it is kept soft, supple, shiny, and as healthy as possible. Allow us to share our secrets with you…!
The best tips for grey hair care:
Double cleanse your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo. For this, we recommend our Vita Rejuvenating Shampoo. Inspired by autumn rains that revitalise the Tuscany countryside, this natural infusion stimulates the scalp, improving hair strength and elasticity.
Use your stimulating shampoo to wash your hair twice, concentrating on the roots, not the ends of your hair. The first cleanse will clean your scalp and the second will remove any build-up left on your strands. As you rinse, the sulfate-free formula will gently cleanse the rest of your locks.
*There is no risk of discolouration with Rossano Ferretti products.
The grey hair rinse
If your grey hair is flecked with many white strands, then you may experience yellowing and discolouration. This discolouration is often inevitable and is caused by pollution in the air or exposure to chlorinated and hard water. The result is brassy locks that are dull and lifeless.
To curb this problem, you can visit a salon to neutralise your greys and even out the colour. For example, applying a colour-safe shampoo can counteract any yellowing, keeping your white strands white for a beautifully enhanced grey look.
**Grey hair rinses can be requested at your salon.
Apply a leave-in treatment to the ends
The best products for grey hair are ones that deeply penetrate your strands to optimally hydrate them, locking in moisture for a long-lasting effect. For this, you want to get your hands on the best leave-in conditioner for grey hair, namely RF’s luxury leave-in hair conditioner.
Applying a leave-in conditioner to the lengths of your grey hair will soften and smooth strands, making hair appear healthy and glossy. Our natural leave-in treatment has the advantage that it leaves absolutely no build-up or sticky residue. Instead, after just one application, your grey locks will feel silkier and more energised than before!
Use grey hair products that will complement your hair type and texture. Our range of anti-aging hair care products are safe to use on all hair colours, including colour-treated hair, and do not discolour strands. This allows you to select products that will target other hair problems whilst enhancing the tones of your locks.
Tip: If you have thin and flat hair, then don’t go too heavy on the conditioner. However, if your hair is thick and naturally coarser, then choose a conditioner designed for heavier strands.
To optimally soften your hair for glossier strands, apply a luxury hair mask at least once a week. You can’t go wrong with our Vita rejuvenating mask. Lovingly made in Italy and infused with 98% rich natural ingredients such as coconut oil, avocado, and shea butter; this product has been formulated to bring resilience, softness, and vitality back to fragile grey hair.
