More curls or less as you turn silver?

I can't tell yet if my silver will be more curly or less curly than the dyed hair; what have others found?
I find no difference in the amount of curls or overall curliness. I do see such an improvement in texture. I always heard gray hair comes in coarser and as my hair is coarse anyway, I was not looking forward to that. But my gray is coming in more silky than my natural hair was. And a major improvement over the current dyed ends. Since snapping my avi pic, my bangs have grown in to be all gray/white and I can see they look thicker than they did when dyed so really looking forward to that for my overall ends.

I will say I'm in my 40s with a full head of gray hair. I'll be interested to see how the condition of my hair changes decades from now.

I think my hair is losing curl now that it's gray. Maybe it's the haircut. The sides by my ears are real fluffy and undefined. The whole head seems more wavy and less curl. Can I get it back, do you think? I wonder if all my shampooing to get rid of the ashy, purple shampoo effects has done a number on my hair, too.

gray hair loses moisture more quickly, i need to seal every wash day so i don't get fluffy, cotton candy hair.

I think a lack of moisture was what was causing my frizz and lack of definition a few months ago. I tried a gentle moisture replenishing shampoo, I have to say without much hope, and it seems to have made a big difference.

my hair does not like oils, but it does like butters. the butter i am currently using and loving is spiral solutions emollience. however she closed her shop a year ago so when i finish my stash i'll be needing to find something else.

i've been looking around, etsy included, but nothing so far. the butter that i used before i discovered emollience and was not bad is jane carter nourish and shine. if i don't find anything i love before i run out of ss emollience i will go back to jane carter while i look around.

always start with a tiny amount, even wait a bit for your hair to absorb it before adding more.

you asked for a drugstore product. i used to buy jane carter with on aveyou.com or at wholefoods. i've also seen in health food stores. never looked so i don't know if any drugstores carry it. you can go on the jane carter website and look for retail locations.
