As a man of rapidly advancing argenté hair myself, I heartily recommend Bumble & Bumble’s violet-toned shampoo and conditioner. It makes silver hair really sparkle and there’s no hint of Quentin Crisp blue rinse-ness.
And it is the only colouring of hair you cannot purchase . White hair is exclusive to the wearer .
I have white hair and love the look and like Phillip have people ask about my hair everyday hurrah Hurrah hurrah for the Greys and whites .
I had the same thing happen to me and it’s never been an issue. I did used to get comments but they tended to be out of curiosity more than anything. Unlike Philip I really enjoyed dyeing it every now and then too. I used to joke that I was going to go ‘grey away’. So grey hair is kinda fun I reckon.
Of course, Anderson Cooper may also be considered a premature silver fox. Young men with grey and white hair are eternally attractive. Congratulations, Philip!
andy warhol wore a wig. he doesn’t count.
i can’t wait to have grey hair. i’m not going to dye my hair. i look really young so it’ll be good to finally have ‘an older person’ signifier.
also its ok for men to go grey, but women HATE it
NIce one! My friends used to give me a hard time as my hair got some gray stains during high school. Today, aged 24, the silver glow is quite dominant, and they recon that it looks quite sharp – eventually women tend to dig the patina.
I want to dye my black curly hair grey.
Any advice on the best way to; pros and cons; maintenaince?
Don’t do it. To get your dark hair light enough you will ruin the condition through heavy duty bleaching. Your hair will just look dry and damaged. Plus its difficult to get a decent grey through colouring – you risk ending up with a blue rinse or a brassy yellow.
There’s plenty of time to enjoy grey hair when it happens naturally..
Jack – that was super helpful. Thanks.
