If before white hairs were a real terror for many women, now, they're a major sensation on recent red carpets. At the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, more celebrities started to join the movement. Helen Mirren, Andie MacDowell, Tilda Swinton and Jodie Foster are some of the actresses who have proven the power of the gray look. After all, it adds that touch of not-so-obvious beauty, a certain mystery, and more personality to the look.
It's worth saying that, although the white threads are wonderful, they require extra care. “Like our skin cells, hair root cells also age, generating a more dehydrated, thin, and dull hair strand. In addition, with aging, the deposition of keratin is altered, generating hair whose thickness is irregular, which gives the fiber a rough and contorted aspect," says dermatologist Dr. Claudia Marçal.
The professional also indicates investing in the use of products that offer UV protection to the threads, since gray hair is more susceptible to solar radiation and the action of free radicals. Moisturizing with specific products for white hair formulated with actives with high hydrating and antioxidant action is also essential to prevent dryness.
