The first gray in the hair: there is an easy way to mitigate the transition to aging


Sooner or later, this happens to everyone: looking in the mirror, we notice our first gray hair. Gray hair is one of the most significant markers of age-related changes. It appears due to a natural decrease in the activity of melanocytes, cells that produce the pigment melanin. The age of appearance of gray hair depends on both heredity and lifestyle. For example, it is known that smokers turn gray earlier. Stress also accelerates graying. On average, blonds and brown-haired have this problem most often by the age of 45-50, and owners of thick dark hair may notice the first gray as early as 30-40 years old.

For many people, it’s not easy to accept changes in appearance, which means the beginning of a new period in life. Sometimes impressionable natures even pluck out the first gray hairs. And people who are inclined to compromise try to convince themselves that this is just bad lighting, and in fact gray hair is completely invisible.

In addition, the hair becomes thinner, dry, stiff and dull due to the fact that lipids are also lost along with the pigment.




It is very important to mitigate the transition to aging, stay true to one’s familiar appearance, and restore psychological comfort. Returning natural hair color can be achieved with the help of plant-based dyes. Such dyes not only provide the desired shade to the hair, but also serve as a complete care product: thanks to carefully selected herbal ingredients, they make hair more shiny, elastic and manageable.

For a more stable and uniform coloring, it is necessary to choose high-quality dyes obtained from finely ground organic plants. In this case, the plant tissues contain the maximum amount of bioactive compounds, and they pass as completely as possible into the coloring composition.

If gray hair has just begun to appear, the best choice will be a dye of the same shade as the natural hair color. For example, in the Ayluna Plant-based hair dyes palette, the most popular options are for golden-ash blondes (Sahara blonde), dark blondes (Dark blonde) and brown-haired (Light brown). The magnificent shades of these dyes are obtained by combining Asian (henna, indigo) and European dye plants (chamomile, madder), which give expressive color nuances. Ayurvedic herbs (amla, brahmi, fenugreek) play a special role, they are intended for delicate stimulation of hair growth, scalp comfort, and enhancement of shine.

To keep the hair alive and manageable after coloring, experts in plant-based dyes recommend applying to the hair immediately after the coloring procedure slightly warmed Ayluna Hair Oil Fine Hair. Such mask will help to close the hair scales raised by the dye, eliminate potential dryness and make the color more expressive. Organic coconut, argan and hemp oils gently envelop and nourish each hair, protecting it from possible damage.

Hair can be washed 1-2 days after coloring, then the pigments will appear in full and there will be no risk of rapid washing out of the dye. Preference should be given to mild natural shampoos, as dyed gray hair is particularly dry and fragile, so require the most careful care. BIOKOSMA shampoo Essential Apple peel provides comprehensive protection thanks to the fruit waxes contained in the apple peel. Pumpkin seed oil will replenish lipid deficiency; fruit acids will create an ideal environment for the microbiome of the scalp.
