Hair Tips – Rev Up Your Shine

Shiny, healthy hair is the best style for your hair. It makes you look younger and is always something you should strive for. Shiny hair is sexy. No matter what kind of cut or style you wear, it’s enhanced by healthy, shiny hair.

Here are a few tips that can help improve your shine:

Avoid drying out your hair. Over-coloring or over-shampooing can do this. Color your hair no more than every 5 to 6 weeks – I’m not talking about touch-ups, though those can be damaging as well if done too quickly. Shampoo daily only if you must. If your hair isn’t oily, try going a day without shampooing and see if it still styles and looks good.

If you must heat style, make sure to use thermal protectant shampoo or thermal protectant hair products. This keeps your hair from being damaged, and ramps up your shine.

When you do wash your hair, make your last rinse (when you rinse out your conditioner) cool water. This seals the hair cuticle and will also make your hair smoother. The smoother the hair cuticle, the higher the amount of shine you’ll get. Try this, it really works!

If you blow dry, finish with a blast of cool air, which also seals the hair’s cuticle and raises shine.

Try a shine serum for extra sheen. A lot of shine serums double as anti-frizz serums, so you get a two-in-one. If you need shine serum for fine hair, make sure to use a spray that doesn’t weigh your hair down. You can also try a finishing spray. These do double duty; they hold your style and make your hair shiny and healthy-looking at the same time.

Do you use shine serums or some other hair product to make your hair shiny? What do you do/use? Let me know on twitter, Facebook, or leave me a comment here on the blog.
