How To Get Beautiful, Shiny and Strong Hair #long_hair
Don't you love it when you feel as if your hair looks so good, you might've just stepped out of a shampoo commercial? You imagine yourself stopping traffic as you strut your stuff down the street - wind whipping through your long, glistening tresses. Okay, so maybe that scenario is only the stuff of dreams - but shiny, healthy hair can be reality. If you learn how to shine with these 10 simple tips
1. Use a leave-in conditioner:
Regular conditioners are great, but if you really want to pump up the shine, We recommend adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine. These come in both spray-on and lotion forms. Apply them the same way you do shine serum.
2. Spray on the shine:
When your hair is dry, finish your look with a spray-on shine product. We recommend Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray. Whether it comes in a pump bottle or aerosol can, a shine spray can be misted onto dry hair - no matter what texture it is - to give it an extra glistening effect.
3. Say yes to hair serum:
Shine serums are available that have been specially formulated to give frizzy or unruly hair a sleek sheen. To apply, "use a pea-sized amount to start," she advises. "Start at the bottom of your hair and work your way up, rubbing it into wet hair with your hands." It's important not to use too much serum, because it can weigh hair down, but if you feel you need more moisture, go ahead and add a bit more.
5. Switch to a silicone flat iron:
A flat iron can help straighten hair, which usually looks shinier than wavy hair. But avoid overusing a flat iron - all that heat-styling can be drying! we recommends a new type of flatiron with silicone built into the plates like this one, rather than the typical ceramic or metal. The heated silicone glides right over the hair and straightens it in one pass. I've found that silicone cuts the straightening time in half, which means less damage.
6. Get a glossing treatment:
If you really want to get your shine on, consider having a professional glossing treatment. These are often performed after a hair-coloring treatment, but you can get one without the dye job. It's designed to give you richer hair color with more depth, but it doesn't actually have any pigment to it. A glossing is usually temporary, lasting about four to six shampoos, and glossing kits are available at some drugstores, so you can even try it out without hitting the salon.
