TURNING YOUR HAIR GREY?  LET’S PLAY!

Hair turns grey naturally with age. Grey hair comes from the pigment melanin, found in the core of each hair. There are only two types of pigment: dark (eumelanin) or light (phaeomelanin). Combined in various combinations, these pigments create all-natural hair colors. When there is more eumelanin than phaeomelanin, you get black hair.

Grey can also be made by mixing black and white or combining equal amounts of cyan, magenta, and yellow. This can be done in dreadlocks extensions to give them a nice aged look.

How do you maintain your Faux Dreads at night?

  1. Switch pillowcase with a silk pillowcase. This reduces lint and static electricity. Silk is softer and won’t pull on your hair as much while you sleep.
  2. If you are styling your faux locs, this will cause a lot of unwanted frizz. Also, cheap hair bought on Amazon tends to not hold its shape and texture for long. Try to take it easy on the product you use to cleanse your scalp regularly. The wrong products or too much of the right product might have adverse effects.
