Caring for and styling post-pandemic hair

Reader's Digest Logo By Jenessa Williams of Reader's Digest | Slide 2 of 6: Grey hair will come for us all, and the process of fighting it can often be pretty laborious and expensive. The part that puts many of us off is the transitional process; ease yourself into it by asking for a ‘colour correction’ at the hairdressers instead of a dye, introducing subtle highlights so that the grey has something to blend into. Keep any brassiness at bay with a colour-correcting shampoo, and invest in thickeners; grey hair can naturally be thinner or sparser in terms of growth, so an extra boost of keratin or biotin via supplements (as approved by your doctor) might help to improve the overall look and feel of the hair. Don't miss these sneaky reasons your hair is going grey too soon.

Embrace the greys
