Beauty Before age
As we get older, our hair and skin usually looses a lot of its pigmentation or mealanin. This is the stuff that gives it colour, hence we go grey or white. Thus it is important to change hair colour to suit your skintone. However, the mistake a lot of darker haired women make when they see a few greys is to go for a paler shade of blonde, which in turn comes out a brassy yellow. My advice is to go with your natural hairs base still and add a few lights to camouflage the greys and avoid a lot of maintenance.
For women who have between 25%-50% grey or white, you now need to do a full head base colour, 2 shades lighter than what your original base was pre grey days. Add into this a few natural lights again to give texture and stop solid regrowth lines. For women with 50% and more grey or white, then again you can go up another shade or two with your base and again add lights. Or you can just work with your own base now and simply add lights. Think Helen Mirren for your inspiration behind this one.
Remember, hair colour as you get older should be tackled with care. The wrong choice of tone could make you look 10 years older not 10 years younger.
Regular salon rituals are great for smoothing down the rough cuticle of more mature hair, and if these are a little pricey for you, then REDKEN offer a collagen boost range which plumps out the hair and gives heaps of shine. This range is specifically developed for mature hair types.
