Dive into the tips ahead to get a glassy finish ASAP.
Whether it be layered cuts to asymmetrical lobs or babylights, there’s one “trend” that has always stood the test of time: shiny hair.
Swap your cotton sheets for a silk pillowcase instead, which reates less tension on hair and helps it look shinier. “Silk is very soft and it minimizes static as well,” says L.A. hairstylist Reece Walker.
Change out your showerhead for one that specifically helps remove minerals from hard water like AquaHomeGroup Luxury Showerhead.
Skip the plastic bristles and look for natural boar-bristle brushes instead, they tend to be more gentle on strands and help distribute your natural oils.
Heat damage can dull strands fast. “Keep the hair dryer off your hair and point the heat concentrator facing down the cuticle,” says Walker.
Switching to a darker tone or even asking your stylist for some lowlights can help add dimension and radiance to hair.
Studies have shown that eating foods high in fatty acids can help increase overall shine. It’s safe to say that beauty does really come from the inside.
When your hair is thirsty, it’s usually dull. Like a plant that goes limp when dehydrated, a boost of moisture can help give life and shine back to hair.
