5 Tips For Styling White Hair


White hair can be difficult to style because it is so pale that it often does not showcase a style well. It can also look dull because of the white color, and can often take on a yellowish tone that does not look so good. There are ways that you can avoid this happening and get the beautiful style that you want without so much work. It is so important that you know how to take care of your beautiful white hair so that you don't make the mistake that so many women do and let it look lackluster and lose its brilliant shine. There are some simple steps that you can take to make your hair look absolutely its best.

Step 1

The first step to styling your white hair is to make sure that the color stays pure and doesn't begin to yellow. When the white hair yellows, it takes on a dull look and doesn't like vibrant like it once did. This can detract from the beautiful look of the hair and cause your style to be dull and lifeless. There is no reason to settle for this poor styling. All you need to do is to rinse your hair with some cream of tartar and lemon juice. You can make a paste of this and comb it through your hair and let it sit on the hair for about twenty minutes. This will lighten those yellowing areas and bring your style back the way it should be.

Step 2

You can also use over-the-counter products such as blue rinses. These subtly color your hair with a brightness that removes the yellow and dull hair so that you hair can be bright and glowing again. This will keep your hair looking its best. The rinses are very gentle on the hair and do not cause much damage. This is great when you need a great look to your hair, but don't have the time to wait for messy fixes. The rinse goes on quickly and sits for a short time and then is rinsed away, leaving behind beautiful and glowing hair.

Step 3

When you are trying to style your white hair, it is important to remember that since your hair does not have pigment look colored hair, that your hair can often soak up different chemicals in the atmosphere. Hard water and smoker are two of the main culprits that can dull white hair and leave it yellow and lackluster. Make sure that you wash your hair often with a buildup removing shampoo so that you don't have these issues. You should also consider washing your hair with softened water or distilled water. This can help your hair avoid absorbing all of the chemicals and minerals that can make it dull.

Step 4

It is very important that you regularly condition your white hair very well as it can become more brittle than colored hair and is more fragile. When the hair loses its pigment, it can often break more and cause problems with split ends. If you keep your hair conditioned, it will not only stay healthy, but will be protected from chemicals and irritants in the atmosphere and in the water supply. This will keep it looking beautiful and healthy.

Step 5

Before you begin styling your white hair, you should add a silicone gloss so that the color of your hair shines in the light instead of absorbing the light and making it look dull. The shine can make your hair glow a brilliant white instead of it looking dull and yellowed.

No matter what style you choose to style your hair in, leave it sleek and smooth to allow for shine. If you curl your white hair, make sure that the curls are broad and smooth. This will keep your hair looking much more shiny and healthy. If you are going for a straight style, make sure that you settle down any fly-aways and that your hair looks as smooth as possible.
