Gray hair is unique in its texture and color.  It often requires special products to make it look and feel its best.  When your hair turns gray, the oil-producing sebaceous glands aren’t as active.  The lack of oil can cause hair (gray or not) to become dry, brittle and maybe a bit frizzy.   The most common complaint women have about gray hair is lack of shine.

So how do you make gray hair shine?
