Grey hair is often dry, coarse, and wiry. Keep it soft and manageable with a deep conditioning treatment like Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner or Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense. Keep white hair vibrant or liven up dull grey hair with L’Oreal Silver Shampoo.

Grey hair is also more prone to styling damage so use a blow dryer with multiple heat settings on middle heat like the BaByliss Pro Ceramic Carrera2. Or turn on the ionic setting of the Conair Infiniti to add lots of volume.
