The Best Shampoos for Gray Hair

Just because your hair has turned gray and you’ve lost much of its pigment, doesn’t mean you should wash and condition it with just any old shampoo or conditioner. Gray and silver hair can tend to "pull yellow" and take on a dull appearance. These products take gray hair into account to leave it looking beautiful.
