Gray Hair with Yellow in it
Q: I have gray hair and it is getting yellow in it. I take a lot of heart medicine. What can I use on my hair?
In the worst case, a quick visit to your local beauty supply store will find what you need. There are also anti-yellowing formula shampoos and conditioners available from some of the larger salon chains. If you have a favorite salon, be sure to ask them about the availability of these products.
In some more-stubborn cases, when dealing with 100% gray hair, you can use a high-lift bleaching service to try and strip out the yellowing or a color-toning service using a platinum shade of blonde (basically a color that uses a blue-violet or violet base color) to neutralize the yellow.
However, most people prefer the blueing agents in the anti-yellowing shampoos to a haircolor process, since many of the high-lift bleaching and color services can be harsh on the hair.
