Update on faux pas that could compromise a bright color and a dynamic look with Christophe Nicolas Biot, hair colorist artist.
Lengths yellowed or too dry, frizz uncontrollable and dull hair … Some details can age and lead to appearance. However, having beautiful white hair is possible if you give yourself the means and avoid some mistakes. Here are five things you should not do to keep beautiful white hair.
1. Let them grow too much
It is very rare to see long white hair … and beautiful. For that, it would have to be smooth and silky, but once the melanocytes stop producing melanin and the hair loses its color, its texture changes. White hair tends to curl and be thicker. In addition, when they are too long, they always end up turning yellow on the lengths and ends. So it is better to find a well-cut hairstyle that matches your style, whether it is a mid-length, a square or a short cut.
2. Zap the colorist
Our environment contributes to the oxidation of hair, which inevitably turns yellow. It is important to continue to do care regularly and to visit your hairdresser or even your colorist in order to rework your “white” if necessary.
There’s nothing worse than cigarette smoke when you have white hair. Smoking is already not very flattering for the skin (it tarnishes the complexion) but tobacco also turns hair yellow more quickly.
4. Leave them natural
White hair requires daily maintenance. Make a very mild shampoo every day, so that they are always clean and bright. Drier in nature, they quickly lose their shine, which is why it is necessary to work on them, brush them and style them.
5. Swear by blue shampoos
Indeed, they quickly decrease the yellow effect on the lengths. But beware, on the flip side. Too many blue shampoos risk swapping the yellow effect for slightly purplish reflections!
