The care of natural gray hair is different from the hair that still has pigment. This is because gray hair is a lot stiffer and/or more fragile. The Keune hair experts explain why and tell you how to best care for naturally gray hair.

What is the difference between gray hair and non gray hair?

Your hair consists of three layers. Of these, the outermost layer is called the cuticle. For most people, this cuticle consists of 6 to 10 smaller layers. As your hair greys, these layers increase and the cuticle often consists of 12 to 16 layers. This causes hair to become harder, stiffer, and frizzy. In addition, gray hair has no more pigment so the shine decreases, and the hair becomes much more fragile. Good care for gray hair is essential.

How do you care for gray hair?

When caring for gray hair, it is important to use products that care for the hair from the inside out. It is also advisable to use firming products to keep gray hair in shape. After all, gray hair gets a whole will of its own.

Products for gray hair

If you want to take good care of gray hair, you need to start with the basics. Use a good conditioning shampoo and conditioner. Finish the care by using a hair mask once a week. Think for example of the Keune Keratin Smooth products. The keratin in the products makes the hair manageable, smooth, and strong. Keune You is also recommended where the shampoo and conditioner are specially designed for your hair by the hairdresser.

Also do not wash your hair too often. Because gray hair is somewhat drier, it needs the natural oils from your scalp to shine. Make sure the temperature of the water is not too hot. Keep this temperature around 38 degrees.

Grey hair that is shiny and frizz-free

To bring some extra shine to gray hair you can use Keune Satin Oil. The maracuja, baobab, and monoi oils draw in your hair and make sure your hair feels wonderfully soft and gets a natural shine.

The Keune Defrizz Serum is there to make the hair frizz-free. This serum makes the hair smooth and supple without weighing down the hair. Ideal care for dry gray hair.

One of our favorites is the Keune Keratin Smooth Silkening Polish. This product makes gray hair stronger and gives it a beautiful shine. It also keeps lint and wilder hair in check.

Extra firmness for gray hair

When you want some extra volume and firmness in your gray hair, it is recommended to use the Keune Root Volumizer. This is a light spray that provides super volume at the roots of the hair. You can also use our Keune Soft Mousse for some more volume without making the hair stiff.
