The following tips are tried and true ways to get your locks looking more shiny and beautiful.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Take Vitamin E and Fish Oil
Taking vitamin E is important for the growth of your nails and hair. The perks of vitamin E is that it makes your skin look more radiant as well. Fish Oil’s also provide us with omega-3 fatty acids. The nutrients in fish oil help to make our tresses look healthy and shiny. Many stores such as GNC and Walmart also sell vitamins that contain nourishing ingredients.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Get it Glazed at the Salon
One of the ways I got my hair to be more shiny was by getting a treatment at a beauty salon. The stylist told me it was called a glaze. It is only necessary to get the treatment about every 6 to 8 weeks. The stylist leaves in a deep conditioning treatment for a couple minutes then rinses it out. The treatment also protects tresses from getting heat damaged.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Get Your Hair Colored
Sometimes in order for a person’s mane to look shiny they may have to dye it. Certain colors tend to not capture the light very well and are dull and lackluster. For example, girls with ash or dirty blond colored hair usually either get blonde highlights or dye their hair darker. Both options provide more shine than simply staying with the dirty blonde color.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Do a Deep Conditioning Treatment
Everyone should have a deep conditioner that is more expensive than regular conditioner. A healing conditioner should be used once a week in order to repair tresses from activities such as blow drying, curling, and flat ironing. I currently use a deep conditioning treatment from Joico. It has keratin and other amino acids that help make my hair stronger and more shiny.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Invest in a Good Blow Dryer
An ionic blow dryer can help to make tresses look more polished. Regular blow dryers do more damage than good. Invest in a dryer that isn’t going to dry out your locks and make them look lackluster.
Ways to Make Your Hair Shiny: Purchase a Shining Mist or Spray
A light shining mist or spray can also work wonders. I suggest going to a store such as Sephora, because there they usually have samples out on display. Try on a spray that makes your locks look shiny but not greasy. Also make sure its light weight enough to not weigh down the hairstyle you usually wear.
