On a recent trip back up North to the Motherland, my ever caring, sharing, loving sisters made an observation to my appearance, in that way that only a family member can get away with, “aren’t you going grey !” Picture a monkey carefully preening a fellow colony member, that sort of thing.
In all honesty the thought hadn’t ever entered my head, yes the thought of losing my hair is a constant worry, but going grey hasn’t really worried me. My Mum is snowy white and always seems to have been from my memory. My Dad had a fine head of dark hair with scattered salt and pepper, only greying round the temples and sides. So greying hasn’t really been on my grooming radar, until now.
Now we know men have different needs and expectations when it comes to getting their hair coloured. We don’t want to spend a lot of time in hair salons and we have reservations about getting a hair colour service at all. The wonderful Aveda have introduced the 5-minute Natural Grey Blending. This is a professional service that quickly and discreetly blends away grey, with a natural finish, with low commitment results that lasts up to 4 weeks.
This formula is a 95% naturally derived and is infused with a plant oil blend including organic sunflower, castor and jojoba to help keep hair looking healthy and is designed to speedily blend away greys.
Now greying is one thing but thinning hair continues to be one of the biggest grooming concerns for men and the fear that products could potentially make hair appear even thinner, particularly when it comes from pastes and waxes. Aveda’s Men Pure-Formance Thickening Paste, uses the thickening agent Alma, to instantly expand each strand of hair. Alma helps to plump each strand from root to ends, to make the hair look and feel thicker.
