White Hair: Why Does It Turn Yellow?

- 06/11/2024

Are you on team white hair and want to show off a beautiful mane? Then, you’re also on Team Henna Morena! If you notice yellowish tones in your white hair and are looking for a way to keep it radiant, you’re in the right place! Henna Morena is launching its first product for gray hair: Azulene and Seaweed Shampoo. We’re sharing all the secrets and care tips so you can flaunt amazing white hair.

Have you ever wondered why white hair tends to yellow over time? This process can be frustrating for many, so we want to share with you the characteristics of this type of hair and the ideal products to keep your mane free of unwanted tones. Let’s get started!


White hair has low pigmentation, making it more exposed to external factors that can alter its color. Some of these factors are:

- Excessive exposure to sunlight, chlorine, and seawater.

- Buildup of residues due to pollution or very strong cosmetic products.

- Continuous use of direct heat sources, such as flat irons or curling irons.

Due to these external factors, hair oxidizes and loses its natural tone.


If you’re going gray, the goal is for your hair to look white and shiny. To achieve this, Henna Morena has launched a special shampoo, Azulene and Seaweed Shampoo.

This is a shampoo with violet and blue tones that counteract yellowish tones. This works because violet/blue tones are opposite yellow on the color wheel and can neutralize it. It is suitable for both white and very light hair with gray, as it provides a stable color without unwanted reflections, maintains the color, and prevents oxidation. It’s important to note that the shampoo does not dye the hair, nor does it darken or lighten it.

The main active ingredients in our shampoo for white hair are Violet, a color-toning pigment that neutralizes and eliminates yellow and orange tones; Azulene, a blue liquid containing essential oil from chamomile flowers, which has a high lightening power and supports shine; and Laminaria Extract, a seaweed that prevents hair loss, helps increase density, has good moisturizing capacity, great antioxidant power, and protects hair structure from external factors.

How to use Azulene and Seaweed Shampoo? It’s no secret: apply it to wet hair, lightly massage the scalp and hair, and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water, both the hair and any exposed skin and hands.


Hydration is very important after every wash: gray hair is often very dry and brittle, so conditioner is essential. Therefore, always use the Orange and Shea Conditioner, a detangler that makes combing easier and contains ingredients that help seal the hair cuticle and keep hair well-hydrated.

When you want to reset your hair and deeply condition your grays, choose the Ghassoul Volcanic Clay. This will be your ally if you want to keep your grays whiter because it eliminates accumulated toxins embedded in the hair, purifying and leaving it as good as new. Apply Ghassoul once a month. How? Prepare it with water, distribute the prepared mixture on damp hair, leave it on for 30 minutes, and remove it with a mild shampoo and plenty of warm water.


Another essential habit in summer is sun protection: protect your hair with hats or scarves and rinse it with fresh water after swimming in the sea or pool. Avoid using synthetic products and replace them with natural ones, let your hair air dry, and use flat irons only for special occasions.

With this routine, you won’t have to worry about yellow tones in your hair again.
