My hair is 4C 90% gray and silver natural hair. What products to use to prevent yellowing?
I find that I am unable to use most products because it yellows my hair. The oils that are beneficial for my hair are either yellow or brown in color which tints my gray/silver, which means I need to wash my hair more to rid the yellowing, which dries my hair out. What products would you suggest to be used? Example, instead of black castor oil, use coconut oil.
Yes, Castor Oil is good and any of the clear oils is what you will need to use. See about getting a special silver shampoo. There are special ingredients in those shampoos to help you silver really shine. AG is the only brand that I have personally used for that, but I am sure there are others. Afterwards use leave in conditioners often to hydrate your hair.
Purple, toner shampoos help with that. You can follow the instructions or use as needed however it works for you. I would suggest trying adding any oil you like, maybe olive oil to the purple shampoo and/or conditioner to help with the drying while its taking care of any yellowing that has occurred. It is very much about your hair getting "stained", it would make sense to try clear/white oils like regular castor oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, Shea butter that is white (this brand has some: http://www.nowfoods.com/Shea-Butter-7oz.htm)Here are some you could try:TIGI: shampoo - http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/99...conditioner - http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/10...Clairolshampoo - http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/10...conditioner - http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/10...I hope that helps!
