Who doesn’t want shiny hair? Glossy tresses look youthful, healthy and sexy. It’s no wonder that shiny hair is ALWAYS on trend. If you weren’t born with naturally smooth, shiny hair, never fear! We’ve got a few hacks to help you pump up the shine.
Shiny Hair Tips and Tricks
Follow these hacks to ensure that your hair is the shiniest it has ever been!
- Don’t over-clean your hair. If you’ve ever heard the advice to lather, rinse and repeat in order to get squeaky-clean hair, forget that immediately! You need at least SOME natural oils on your hair to keep it from becoming dull, brittle and definitely NOT shiny. So, when washing, apply a small amount of shampoo to the roots, lather into scalp and rinse. (That’s it, don’t repeat.) Then apply conditioner to your hair from about mid-length to the ends, and rinse. For extra-powered shine, we recommend L’ANZA Healing Smooth Glossifying Shampoo and Conditioner.
- Use a natural boar-bristle brush. Natural boar bristles exfoliate the scalp, increase blood flow and draw out oils and distribute them evenly through your hair down to the ends where they are needed the most, leaving hair softer and shinier. The Creative brand makes a great series of boar bristle brushes in a variety of sizes.
- Use an overnight moisturizing masque. To keep your hair in great condition and give it a serious moisture boost, incorporate a once-a-week hair masque that you wear for a few hours or overnight. Eufora Beautifying Elixirs Moisture Masque will deliver an intense dose of healing moisturizing to dry, damaged tresses with a formulation of shea butter, kaolin clay, sage and thyme.
- Add a supplement with Omega-3 to your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids give your hair, skin and nails an amazing boost from the inside out, no kidding! Try the daily supplement Phytophanere. Its blend of vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants will make your hair, skin and nails healthier than ever, and really boost that hair shine!
- Don’t use drying or dull styling products. Many hairsprays and other styling products can leave a dull coating on your hair that robs it of its shine. Many of these products are drying as well, which only exacerbates the problem. Switch to a shine-enhancing hairspray like Eufora Style Retain. This spray delivers firm yet flexible hold and heat styling thermal protection, all while fighting frizz, protecting color and enhancing shine. Retain also provides a clean finish when using hot tools and is never sticky or flaky.
- Want still more shine? Finish off with L’ANZA Healing Style Shine F/X. It’s a super lightweight aerosol shine mist that gives incredible glossiness for youthful, healthy look hair. It also smooths and adds dimension to your color.
