Grey Hair Friendly Shampoos 2019

I really enjoyed working on this article as it gave me an insight of various grey hair shampoos available in the market . Picking the best ones out of hundreds was so overwhelming but worth. My previous post was a thorough research of the chemicals that can be harmful for Grey hair (if used regularly). I have picked the best shampoos based on the ingredients, the reviews and the recommendation from my fellow silversisters. I tried to choose the composition best suitable for Natural Silver Hair.

Though the above mentioned products are highly rated, still some of the products contain SLS, Silicones, Parabens , Artificial colours and Fragrances. All of these chemicals have a tendency of coating hair and thats what gives the hair lusture and shine. But these chemicals must be clarified from hair time to time to ensure overall health of the silvers. Also deep conditioning or using hair masks once a week to cope from dryness.

Give a try to one of these shampoos for a few weeks to see the full results. If you don’t find the product suitable to your hair, move on to another until you find the right one. 

Some of the silversisters on Instagram sharing their experiences on the shampoos they use! I thank them all for sharing their thoughts.

 I have been a huge fan of Aveda for many years. It’s clean, good quality, and smells divine! So I started using the Aveda Blue Malva. It’s a subtle toning shampoo yet works great!

The shampoo that I use  is Clairol color shimmer lights, I use it twice or three times  a week.  I let it stay for couple minutes and rinse it off, and following with a good conditioner. So far using it that way I use it works really well.

I just use the Clairol Shimmering Lights, and it seems to brighten my hair when its looking dull or fades or a little yellowish from using my flat iron. It gives me a shiny silver 🙂

-Jineen @jineenmariesilvery

The purple shampoo I use is the Not Your Mother’s Blonde Moment Shampoo. I only use it once or twice a month. I’ve never had it turn my hair outright purple but it definately brightens my silvers! And as someone who is sensitive to smells, the fragrance  is not overpowering.
