one question i am asked the most is how do i keep my silver locks in tip-top shape? one product i’m always on the lookout for is purple shampoo. why? well, just like blonde hair silver hair tends to get brassy. ugh! that’s where opens in a new windowHair Biology steps in with a brand spanking new line developed specifically to work with women’s unique hair biology not against it. just as our bodies and skin are aging our hair is aging too. once we hit 45 there are lots of changes that begin to occur. i’m certain you’ve noticed at least one or two differences like dryness or thinning, going grey, or maybe your once shiny locks have become dull and lackluster. well, i’m pleased to announce there’s help! opens in a new windowHair Biology is on a mission to celebrate aging and to help our hair look and feel it’s very best – changes and all.  so here’s how i take care of gray hair.

how i take care of my gray hair

for the past several weeks I’ve had the privilege to test the opens in a new windowHair Biology Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. as i mentioned silver/grey hair can turn brassy if it’s overexposed to sunlight or using hot tools on our hair. blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons being the main culprits. for years i’ve added a purple shampoo into my hair care regimen but you might find it interesting to know that purple conditioners are few and far between. so i can’t tell you how relieved i was when i learned opens in a new windowHair Biology made a purple shampoo and purple conditioner in their opens in a new windowSilver & Glowing line. i loved how the two products gave me a one-two punch that not only rid my hair of any yellow tones but left my hair feeling hydrated and shiny. and if by chance you’re coloring your hair blonde this will work for you too! and for those of you who struggle with thinning hair, there’s a wonderful new product called opens in a new windowThickening Treatment designed to give you fuller-looking hair. and who doesn’t want that at any age? 

isn’t the packaging gorgeous? the blue bottle with gold and silver lettering is oh so elegant.

attention. attention. calling all ladies with thinning hair. a common problem as we age. please test their hair opens in a new windowThickening Treatment. you won’t be sorry.

adding opens in a new windowHair Biology Silver & Glowing Shampoo and Conditioner once or twice a week keeps my silver/grey hair looking and feeling lustrous. 

don’t forget opens in a new windowHair Biology is exclusively available at Target online and in stores nationwide! besides the opens in a new window Silver & Glowing Collection, they offer opens in a new windowHair Biology Soft & Hydrated Shampoo and Conditioner for coarse hair and opens in a new windowHair Biology Full & Vibrant Shampoo and Conditioner for thinning hair. what are you waiting for? we’re getting bolder, not older and Hair Biology quite agrees.

here’s a throwback photo when i was in my forties before i let my hair go au naturel. while i loved my hair back then i think i love it even more today.

    Beth, after reading this I’m think I will try using this. I have grey almost white hair and this might be something I need. Also, your picture of you before makeup and after caught my eye. Did you ever share your makeup routine? I know you did skin care which was helpful but I’m now curious about the makeup. Thanks.

    • i do share makeup routines. there are a few youtube videos about makeup from start to finish. go check them out.

    Interesting–I’ve been seeing their ads on social media recently, and had wondered if they’re any good. I’ll have to give their products a try. I hadn’t heard of them prior to seeing ads, and now you’re showing them here. They sound like they’re products I should try. Thanks for the heads up. Sweet picture of you and your spring-off.

    I wonder if it’s water that we use to wash our hair that causes it to turn brassy or maybe swimming in a pool. I have well water because we live in a rural area and live on the Gulf so that’s the only water I would swim in so my hair has never turned Brassy.

    I do think I’d like to try the thickening because I’ve noticed my hair seems thinner now. Conditioners can weigh down my fine hair but I’m always searching for one that won’t.

    Love the pic from when you had blonde hair. Mr Style Jr. Is so cute.

    • i hope you try the thickening treatment and send along your thoughts afterward.

    My husband stopped coloring his hair when he retired and he looks great with the silver/gray. I’ve mentioned getting purple shampoo so this is a great suggestion. Thank you! I hope your detox is going well this week.

    I’m not quite ready to pull the trigger yet on going grey, but I must say that this quarantine has given me a wake-up call. After having my hair cut and colored every 4 weeks for close to 25 years by a hairdresser that I don’t even care for, I have finally decided to pull the plug from my hair stylist and I am letting my hair grow out into a long bob. I can trim my own bangs and trim the bottom, and color my hair whenever I want, be it every 3 weeks or every 8 weeks. I have even adjusted my color and it is now a much lighter golden brown. I have spent a small fortune over these years, I really feel quite liberated! There, I said it!! When I do decide to go grey I will definitely use these great looking products.

    • good for you, linda! love to hear the silver linings that come from being in quarantine.
