    I use nfruizon [] products. I use their clarifying shampoo and their moisturizing conditioner. I love the stuff! The clarifying shampoo keep my white hair from looking yellowed and the moisturizing conditioner leaves my white hair soft and hydrated, so I don’t have the dried-hay look.

    Thank you for these. I have recently been using the Trevor Sorbie ‘Rejuvenate’ shampoo and conditioner. This is what the blurb says:

    Brightening Shampoo

    Cashmere and silk proteins moisturise the hair whilst the violet base colour neutralises underlying brassy tones, restoring brightness to blonde or greying hair. Anti-oxidant complex and UV filter protect hair against damaging effects of the environment and heated aplliances. Panthenol improves strength and elasticity.


    * 18 methyl eicosanoic acid – a lipid that is the key to natural shine
    * Amodimethicone – a conditioning active specially designed to target damaged areas
    * HC blue no.2 – level one hair dye to tone down brassy notes in dull grey hair
    * Panthenol – pro Vitamin B5 which improves shine
    * Polyquaternium-10 – conditioning film-forming polymer that gives body by smoothing the cuticles


    * Adds shine
    * Moisturises
    * Reduces brassy tones in blonde & grey hair

    Because of concerns about possible build up of the violet colour I only use these once a week. The rest of the time I like Pantene’s ‘Ice Shine’ range. It makes the silver quite sparkly in the light.

    My hair is very coarse and wavy so I love Carol’s Daughter. They have a Mimosa Hair Honey that is a great leave in. Gives me lots of shine and takes away frizz without makin me feel greasy or have heavy hair. I love it but have to be careful not to use too much. It smells so good!!

    I’ve been using Phyto whitening shampoo for grey and white hair. It is wonderful and it can be used everyday. I have more white at the front and around my face, since using Phyto it it very bright and white. When you stop using it, and I never will, your white hair returns to its own shade of white.

    I highly recommend it.

    Hi Robin,

    I have also heard great things about Carol’s Daughter for African American hair. You should be good to go with their products that take care of dry, fragile hair. Shine and mositure are the key.

    Is there a whole line of products for silver/white hair? A good shampoo, conditioner, body builder and shine product?

    I have used so many different silver hair-care shampoos, and the best remains Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo & Conditioner. From the get-go you know it’s different from anything else – it has the strong smell of haircolor, and I assume it’s depositing some color, especially the conditioner. NOTHING works as well as this stuff. One use and any yellow or dull hair is sparkling silver. It’s amazing stuff and I highly recommend it.

    I use Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo. I also have started to massage my scalp as I read that this also helps. I would NEVER dye my hair again. When I finally got the dye out of my hair and went completely "salt and pepper" it felt very liberating.

  10. Leslie says

    Unfortunately, I use(d) Pantene ProV Silver Expressions…never found anything that looked as good…my dark brunette daughter loved it as well…how it left her hair, no other Pantene worked as well. But…they have apparently eliminated it.

  11. Kim says

    I used the "Pantene Pro V Silver Expressions" for awhile.

    I've since switched to, "ShiKai Color Reflect Platinum"
    It works as well if not better than the Pantene, with the added benefits of NOT being tested on animals! It has Blue Malva it's made without a ton of chemicals as well.
    I buy mine at "Whole Foods", you could look at other natural foods stores as well.
    They have a website, that you can prob. order from if that's easier.

    There are products that help clarify grey hair. I use "shimmer lights" shampoo and conditioner for blond and silver hair. It helps clarify yellow tones. I haven't found anything to make my darker hair whiter though, so if you find something, let me know. There are dyes, of course, for theater people. But that isn't what I want. If you want that, try places that sell theater make-up. Even Beauty supply stores might carry that. They will carry the clarifying shampoos, etc.
