Men: how can you enhance your salt and pepper hair?

Gentlemen, maybe you’re having trouble embracing your greying locks? There’s no point in worrying about it as it actually gives you a whole lot of charm. So enhance your grey locks with a targeted 3-step regime so that they remain your weapon of mass seduction!

1. Neutralise the yellowing

This is the arch enemy of salt and pepper hair. Grey hair lacks melanin and is more vulnerable to heat and weather conditions which can harm the amino acids contained in the hair fibre. It then releases yellow molecules which cause your locks to turn this unsightly colour. To prevent and eliminate these pesky highlights, regularly use anti-yellowing treatments such as purple shampoo or products from Jean Louis David’s Silver Therapy range whose blue/purple pigments will neutralise the yellow tones instantly.

2. Strengthen your hair

Another problem caused by the lack of pigments which naturally form a protective filter around the fibre: grey hair is weakened and becomes dry, porous and even prone to breakage. To make your hair more resilient when it comes to day-to-day damage, finish off your regime with treatments high in keratin, such as those from the Keratin Therapy range which will deeply repair your locks.

3. Add shine

When grey hair builds up, it tends to make your hair look dull. To get beautifully shiny hair, opt for styling products such as Shine Spray which will place a layer of shine over your lacklustre salt and pepper locks.
