We all love shiny hair. And we all want hair that glistens in the sunlight, moonlight, and any other light we're in! But who has the time (and budgets) to go to the salon everyday to achieve super-shiny hair? Well rest easy. We've compiled a list of 6 techniques you can incorporate into your haircare regimen to get the shine you are looking for.
Use less heat.
Yes, it seems counterproductive but high heat over the course of time can dry your hair out. Skipping the heat a few days a week will allow your hair to retain moisture, making it shine more.
Get and ionic low dryer.
Ionic blow dryers dry hair faster than regular hairdryers. They will expose your hair to less heat allowing you to retain moisture.
Use heat protection products.
Heat protection products will shield your hair from heat, leaving your hair healthier and smoother.
Use a hair oil.
It will take some trial and error when deciding on an oil, but using an oil will give your hair extra shine and sleekness. Try a light oil such as argan oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, rosehip seed oil, or sweet almond oil.
Shampoo less often.
Shampooing everyday can strip your hair of its natural oil. Shampoo less often, or use a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo instead.
Deep condition weekly.
A weekly deep conditioning treatment will help restore and maintain moisture, resulting in shinier hair.
