Silver Crowns: 7 Black Women Share Their Grey Hair Journey
Maintaining moisture seems to be an issue for Naturals everywhere. Adding grey hair to the mix creates a whole new level in the natural hair hydration/moisture matrix.
To get a better understanding of what Naturals with grey hair have to go through let’s go over a little hair science. Our hair consist of three layers: the cuticle, cortex and medulla. Every time we use shampoo the cuticle lifts allowing water to enter the hair strand, but with grey hair the game changes. Grey strands can have up to 25 layers of cuticle.
You think you have issues with keeping your hair hydrated/moisturized, imagine trying to get up to 25 layers of cuticle to lift. Think low porosity issues times a million.
Although grey hair can be challenging to moisturize it’s not an unattainable feat. We asked women from our #30dayhairdetox private Facebook group to share their experiences on being grey. We also asked them to share how the #30dayhairdetox has made their grey hair more manageable. Here’s what they had to say.
