With more and more women embracing their natural beauty as they age, the market has responded and is providing a variety of shampoos, conditioners and other products which cater to grey hair specifically. The fact that the market has listened and paid attention to this growing positive trend is great however there is a catch.

The marketplace has now been flooded with so many options it is now a whole new challenge finding the right products for you.

Here are 3 shampoos that have been recommended by women in their 60s:

  1. Pantene’s Age Defy Shampoo

    Pantene’s Expert Collection is recommended to those with fragile or damaged hair that is starting to show signs of thinning. Its formula is gentle enough for anyone who has used semi/permanent hair dyes. It helps fight the 7 signs of ageing hair: split ends, dryness, thinning, breakage, frizz, lacklustre colour and unruly greys.
  2. L’Oreal Serie Expert Silver Shampoo

    The L’Oreal Expert Silver Shampoo is aimed at anyone who has grey or white hair. It acts a gentle cleaner and leaves hair bright and shiny. It also strengthens hair while reducing unwanted yellow tones.
  3. Provoke Touch of Silver

    Touch of Silver is recommended to combat fading hair colour or dullness. It counteracts brassiness with a violet colour pigment which acts as an enhancer for grey, white or platinum blond hair.


The best part about the listed shampoos is that you can find them in stores such as Priceline meaning you don’t need to spend a fortune at a salon!

    The irony – used Magic Silver White as a teenager – now they have repackaged it as ‘a touch of silver’ for my old age…

      Victoria, my most embarrassing experiment in hair colouring resulted in me having pillar box red hair (I was aiming for auburn). Someone suggested I use Magic Silver White to tone it down. I must have used too much as I ended up with pillar box red hair and a purple scalp, lol. My mother made me wear a beanie till she got me to the hair dresser and had it died very dark brown!

      Victoria Alexandra D’Arienzo I can remember joining the blue rinse set many years ago by using that. Gave my niece a good laugh since I was only in my 30s

  6. Chris Westcott

    Why do they assume that everyone over 60 has grey hair? At the risk of upsetting people, mine is still brown and I am in my mid 60s. I am sure it will go grey in the not too distant future, but it will depend upon what it looks like as to whether I just continue the same, which I suspect I will.

    • Jo Bain

      I am only grey in front – the back is still my natural auburn. I look like a badger.

    • Chris Westcott

      Well our badgers are black, white and grey, so yours must be different. I think if I went stripey or particoloured I might do something; probably semi permanant so it washed out fairly quickly.

    • Jo Bain

      I have considered silver streaks, but the upkeep is too expensive so I will just wait patiently for it to start to go grey at the back then shave it all off and let it grow through.

    • Chris Westcott

      Think it depends on each individual Denise. If making the most of what I have means going to the hairdresser frequently or mucking around with colourings, which I have never used, I may just accept what nature gives me unless it is really awful. 🙂

    • Jo Bain

      I would rather treat my body with care than use all sorts of chemicals to pursue lost youth i am afraid, and even silver streaks use some fairly toxic chemicals.

    • Lesley Margaret Johnston-Croft

      Good on you Chris – I’ve been colouring my hair for ages and just decided recently to embrace the grey and am happy with it but lucky you still with your colour in good order – good job.
