I Wasn’t Born With Brassy Hair, And I Don’t Want It Now

It seems like eons ago, but back in 2020, I started using Hair Biology hair products, and I’ve never looked back.

I wasn’t born with brassy hair; it was snow-white and gorgeous. But age takes its toll, and now I have to fight the brass monster to keep it from taking over my blonde hair. As we age, things start to change, and that includes our hair. We are not “one size fits all,” and our hair needs are different from someone in their 30s.

Thankfully, Hair Biology launched the Silver & Glowing line, which I consistently use. I don’t use a lot of fancy and expensive products; I use great products that were made especially for women over 40. Women over 40 have been overlooked for way too long by fashion brands, so I was thrilled to see a company that valued us older women and developed products just for us.

Just like skin, hair shows signs of aging:

  • Thinning: as we age, we don’t just grow less hair, the diameter of each strand also thins.
  • Dryness: Our scalp’s natural oil production can drop in half as we age, which makes our hair feel thirsty and dry from roots to ends.
  • Graying: By our 50s, more than 90% of women have at least some gray hair, and one-third of us want to show our grays off, not cover them up.
  • Hair Quality: hair flows like silk when each strand has a uniform shape, but as we age, time and damage can cause irregular hair shapes, giving us more frizz and flyaways.

Joe uses Hair Biology too. He uses the Soft & Hydrated Line, and I’m glad since it keeps his hands off of my shampoo. Lol! My hair is coarse, thick, and on the dry side, so I don’t wash my hair every day. I use the Silver & Glowing silver shampoo and conditioner most days, but once a week, I’ll use the Color Sealing Mask.

I also apply the Silver Shine Serum each time I wash my hair. This shine serum can be used on wet or dry hair, and it gives my hair back the shine it had when I was younger.

Dry your hair. I’m channeling Albert Einstein; I bet his white hair would have loved Hair Biology too! Lol!

This photo is right after I dried my hair, and it hasn’t been styled, and I didn’t use any other products.

I always travel with my full-size bottles in my suitcase. I’ve made the mistake once of not having Hair Biology with me, and my hair felt like straw the whole week. Recently, while I was visiting my parents, I ran to Walmart and picked up a Silver & Glowing Shampoo and Conditioner to leave at their house so I wouldn’t have to bring mine every time. I was thrilled to know that you can now find Hair Biology online and in-store at Walmart.

I’m not the only one who is thrilled with Hair Biology; here is a tiny sample of comments left mby y readers.

“Hair Biology is great! I started using their volume line and it has worked really well for me. My hair has been thinning for years. HB makes it feel soft but not so soft that it is limp and it gives really good lift. There has been enough of a difference that my hair stylist asked what I was using and got me to send her screenshots of the bottles. And the HB products work better and are more affordable than what I had been getting from the dermatologist!”

“Thank you Tania for your inspiration and great ideas…especially the Hair Biology!”

“I purchased other hair biology products on your recommendations and this new one is great. I feel like it makes my highlights look freshly done. I use about once per week, alternating with the other (thinning hair) products. Thanks for the endorsement and recommendation.”

‘I have been using the Hair Biology line since you first posted about it. I am 65, a color treated brunette, and my hair had been getting brassy between coloring jobs. Then the whole COVID thing, and my hair was a hot mess. I mix the soft and hydrate product half and half with the purple line about twice a week, then use the regular soft and hydrate the other times. The brassiness has disappeared, and I have less gray hair showing too. Less visits to the salon, and even my hairdresser is impressed with the changes. Great product, thanks for the follow up!”

Thanks, Hair Biology, for sponsoring this post and giving me great-looking hair for the last three years!
