Gray hair is not particularly high-maintenance, but there are definitely products and routines that you can use to keep your gray hair looking its best.

During the week, I keep my routine simple. I leave for work at 6:30 a.m. (when I’m on time ?), so I can’t do anything fancy or time-consuming during the week.

My regular shampoo is BTWCo. Daily Moisturizing Shampoo. It’s light and leaves my hair feeling quite soft. After shampooing, I condition my hair with BTWCo. Daily Moisturizing Conditioner.

WEEKLY ROUTINE

Once a week or so, I use a clarifying shampoo instead of my regular shampoo to reduce product buildup.

MONTHLY ROUTINE

Once a month (more or less – I’m not super-rigid about my routines), I use QuickSilverHair Clay. It brightens my silvers, removes any discoloration from pollution or products, and makes my hair feel really soft.

WHAT DID I DO DIFFERENTLY WHEN I WAS MID-TRANSITION?

When I was transitioning from dark brunette dyed hair to silver hair, my fading dyed ends turned brassy orange.

WHAT SHADE OF EYEBROW LOOKS BEST ON YOU?

To combat that, I used to use Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo once a week to brighten my silvers and tone down the orange tones that occur in fading brunette dye.  (I had to use it a specific way for it to work, so make sure to read How to use Blue Shampoo before you use it!)

After writing this all out, I realized I spend a lot of time and energy on my hair. That shouldn’t be a surprise, but for crap’s sake – it’s kind of ridiculous! Get a life, Katie!
