My mom's hair is like that too, I think she uses a mascara until she dyes it next. I don't have enough white hairs for this problem yet, but my temples have white hairs so I'll keep an eye out for answers to this thread. It's good to be prepared for the future! I'll probably be gray within the next 5 years anyway (thanks mom and dad!)
fine - normal porosity*?- medium density - normal elasticity. Hard water. SoCal.
*Used to be low-porosity, but I lightened my hair 1-2 shades, so I may be normal-porosity now.
