Looking for any youtubers, bloggers, or communities for people around my age range who deal with 100% gray, coarse, wiry, hard to manage hair. Looking for information on styling, techniques, products, etc. I try google, but its like 100 pages of too general articles and marketing for artifically high dollar products and usually people much older than me.
Thanks in advance.
CG since 11/2014
Mostly 2B, but ranges A-C front to back and root to tip
Low density, very coarse, high porosity
Collarbone length, gray dyed brown, dry and rough
Typical LEG routine could be any combination of:
Lo poo: Shea Moisture brand shampoo, Ion Hard Water Shampoo
Cowash: As I Am Coc Cowash
RO: GVP CB, Aussie Mega Moist, Not Your Mothers Gardenia
Leave In: As I Am LI, KCKT, or Not Your Mothers Gardenia
Enhancer: Camille Rose Curl Maker
Deep condition: SM Deep Treat Mask
Protein: Hask Keratin

    I can't help you on the youtube/blog front but have you seen that Lorraine Massey published a new book? It's called Silver Hair: A Handbook. It's specifically for silver hair. I own it and I think it's just as awesome as her curly girl handbook! Lots and lots of stories of folks who have gone fully silver at various ages, not just older folks. I must admit one of my favourite parts is that she calls it silver hair instead of grey. It does look more silver than grey, I'm totally here for changing our description of it! :) I'm not 100% yet, but I had my first silver hair in my teens and I have quite a bit now and I'm 36.
