In Ming Dynasty China during Tian Qi Emperor's fourth year of reign, the people of Guang Yuan continue to face crop failure and famine. Zhuo Ji Xian, an official of the Ministry of Revenue, is dispatched by order of the crown prince to deliver rations and fodder to the stricken region. While passing through the Jade Dragon Mountains, he and his men, along with the provisions, are seized by Lian Ni Chang, a female vigilante. Zhuo Ji Xian's son Zhuo Yi Hang, Wu Dang's head disciple, comes to his father's rescue, thereby becoming embroiled in the battle between the crown prince, infamous eunuch politician Wei Zhong Xian, and Lian Ni Chang. Although the two start off on the wrong foot, Zhuo Yi Hang and Lian Ni Chang are mutually attracted to each other and fall in love. However, misunderstandings occur that cause a rift in their relationship, and Lian Ni Chang's hair turns white overnight after believing that Zhuo Yi Hang has betrayed her. To restore Lian Ni Chang's former beauty and reunite with his lover, Zhuo Yi Hang travels to Mount Heaven in search of a legendary rare flower that blooms only once every 60 years.

This is an adaptation from the novel, story is quite different from the films & the other series adaptations. Liáng Yǔshēng's/Chen Wentong's book on this story didn't have a good ending. This series is quite long, I think 42 Episodes. And its finale airing in the first week of December 2012. I remembered the white air demoness had a short role in Sword Stained in Royal Blood as An Xiaohui, who had an evil father, who regrets abandoning/killing his family for wealth & power before dying. She looks quite a bit older now, it seems, after only 5 years. The old saying that due to stress, actors/actresses ages 20% faster than normal people is true... No wonder they need plastic surgery every couple of years.
This show seems similar to how "The Magic" blade mixed several of Gǔ Lóng/Xiong Yaohua's books into one series.

I haven´t watched this, but from the description it sounds like this is a version of Liang Yusheng´s "White-haired Demoness" (rough translation), which the Brigitte Lin movie was ostensible based on... but, you know, based on it like the "Swordsman" movies was sorta kinda based on Jin Yong´s "Smiling, proud Wanderer" or the "kung Fu Cult Master/Evil Cult" movie was based on "Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre"... ie. they took it as a basic idea and then went apeshit with it in true ´90s HK fashion.
This seems to be way closer to the source.
