Grey Hair Friendly Shampoos

Updated: August 17, 2020

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 that’s what gives the hair lustre and shine.

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 with the 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 🙂

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.

  1. Hi Anjana!
    Great job on all the interesting and informative articles here. In fact, the headline of this particular one caught my attention fastest!

    This feature, however, predominantly features shampoos not easily available here, in India currently. Thanks to lockdown, Amazon isn’t delivering these either.

    Was wondering if you could please curate a list on pro silver Shampoos and Conditioners that are easily available in India? That would be very helpful.

    Thanks so much:)!!
    Regards,
    Indu

    P.s: Also, where do I share my Transition to Silvers story to be featured here?

  2. Tinted shampoos tend to be very drying and can also deposit too much pigment. Plus I always have to use a conditioner anyway so why not a tinted one? I’m almost 100% white now (kinda skipped the gray phase) and thought I’d share my top tinted conditioners: purple/violet; blue and silver. The Redken Graydiant “system” (shampoo is violet, conditioner is blue/gray) gets the top spot since the shampoo cancels
    yellow and the conditioner gives my hair amazing brightness and shine (the only tinted shampoo I use btw); Joico Color Balance Blue conditioner; Loma violet conditioner; No Fade Fresh Platinum conditioner (which is silver and at CVS); Celeb Luxury Flawless Diamond Bonding conditioner (silver); Oribe Brightening Blond (violet) and Silverati conditioners (silver-ish). If you don’t know about the incredible Oribe Silverati Pomade, now ya do!! The BEST finishing product for gray, silver and white hair PERIOD. Pricey but fantabulous.
