Whether you’ve grown tired of having to touch up your greys every month or are simply looking to try out a natural look, rocking long grey hair is trendier than ever. It’s bohemian, effortless, and totally chic. Best of all, it requires minimal maintenance, so you can spend less time at the salon and more time embracing your natural beauty. We have the scoop on the hair look that’s taking over the ‘gram!

Long Grey Hair: Embracing Your Natural Beauty

Covering up is a thing of the past. From natural makeup to forgoing your trips to the salon to touch up your greys, embracing your natural beauty is cooler than ever. Long grey hair is more than just a hair trend; it symbolises confidence, female empowerment, and self-love. We’re loving this trend because it’s helping women feel inspired to feel comfortable in their own skin, just as they are.

Women With Long Grey Hair: Who Is Likely To Embrace This Look

Naturally, long grey hair makes us think of free-spirited bohemians, world travelers, and women with a penchant for the arts, but anyone can rock this look. Whether you have a few grey hairs speckled throughout your head or have been battling a full head of salt and pepper for years now, stylists are encouraging women to embrace aging. Whatever your style, there are truly 50 shades of grey with so many ways to adapt this look to suit your personal tastes. Aside from wearing your hair down and playing to your natural texture, our favourite long grey hairstyles include messy buns, french braids, and the low ponytail.

Managing Your Long Grey Hair: A Care Guide 

Like blonde hair, grey hair requires a specific care regimen to keep it looking cool-toned and vibrant. We recommend using the L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Magnesium Silver Shampoo to help keep brassy hues at bay whilst preserving the radiance of your grey hair, eliminating dullness, and adding shine. A favourite among experts (and us), it’s specially designed for silver, white, and grey hair colours. Enriched with anti-yellowing agents to neutralize those pesky unwanted warm tones, your long grey hair will stay looking fresh and feeling soft.

Dial Up The Shine

The key to rocking long grey hair lies in dialing up the shine. Grey hair is especially prone to taking on a dull, lackluster hue, so it’s important to use products that provide hydration and give your strands a smoothing effect. Our suggestion? TheL’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Liss Control Plus is an intensive smoothing serum that tames frizz whilst giving your tresses enviable shine for hair that looks and feels healthy -shine bright like diamond!

Grey hair is also increasingly susceptible to looking dry and brittle, so it’s a good idea to use a nourishing mask once a week like the L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Rich Mask to lock in moisture and infuse your strands with long-term shine. Formulated with argan oil and myrrh extract, the rich, buttery texture seeps into your hair to combat unruliness and improve manageability. Good hair days are ahead for you, you silver siren!

Whether you’re feeling bold or just like yourself, embracing your long grey hair is the new normal. Remember, if you decide to unleash your grey hairs, be sure to do so without inhibition. Trust us, your confidence will be contagious!
