As we get older, so does our hair. Over time, the rate at which our bodies produce melanin (the thing that gives our hair pigment) slows down and eventually may even stop altogether, causing hair to lose its colour and appear grey.
Alongside the loss of pigment, grey hairs often appear wiry and dry as a result of diminishing oil production by the sebaceous glands in the hair follicle. Jonathan Soons, creative ambassador at Headmasters, explains: “The ageing process changes the texture of hair so that it appears brittle, wiry and frizzy. Commonly, the longer the hair is, the more this becomes evident.”
To deal with ageing hair, Soons recommends switching up your products. “Older hair can be more fragile, so use a gentle brush such as Manta (£25). To help keep grey hair fresh and remove yellow tones, I swear by Revlon Professional Nutri Color Crème in 1002 (£21). As well as helping with colour, it also acts as a mask to keep hair super moisturised,” says Soons.
