Silver Hair: Say Goodbye to the Dye and Let Your Natural Light Shine: A Handbook by Lorraine Massey (Author), Michele Bender (Contributor)

Silver is the new black, blonde and brown… From the author of Curly Girl, Silver Hair,comes a guide to letting your hair go silver.  Massey, a hairstylist for three decades, includes testimonials and pictures from herself and from women of various ages who decided to bite the bullet and let their hair go natural.  Her message to those who want do it is to “embrace your natural hair and do it for you and no one else”.  One myth is that silver hair will age you or look unprofessional.  She says that as long as you take care of your hair and yourself you will look great.  In fact, she has many women who go silver who never go back to dying their hair again.  She also suggests some hair products and home remedies to make that transition easier from dyed to silver and to keep your hair in good condition.

As a convert myself at 58 years old (see below), I agree completely with the advice she provides in this great handbook.  I have received so many compliments on my silver hair and wish I had started sooner.  It is true that the texture of your hair will change so you will need to change the hair products you use.  I also found that I had to change my makeup and clothing colors as well because my hair color was so much lighter. Ms. Massey discusses this in the book also.  My advice to you is to take a chance.  Every person is different and every hair color is different, but I promise you will welcome not having to pay to dye your hair again and that you will love the results!

Thank you to Ms. Massey, Workman Publishing Company, and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
