How To Get Healthy, Shiny Hair

Are you tired of dull, lifeless hair? If your hair is giving you trouble, you’re not the only one. The road to long and luscious hair is a difficult one. But with a few simple tips, you can get healthy, shiny hair in no time. Different lengths and styles require different maintenance so just because your friend’s routine works for her doesn’t mean it’ll work for you too. Be sure to tailor your haircare routine to fit you. Here are a few simple tips you can follow to get the healthy hair you’ve always wanted:

Use a heat protectant

With all the heating and styling tools we use, our hair can get fried, frizzy and damaged very easily.The high temperatures we put our hair through can really strip hair of it’s natural protective coating. Whether you use a styling tool once in awhile or everyday, be sure to use a heat protectant spray. A heat protectant will protect your hair from high heat and help keep it’s shine. Without it, your hair will become damaged and split very easily. Try the Matrix Biolage Fortifying Heat Styler or the Rusk Thermal Straight Protective Shine Spray.

Deep Condition At Least Once A Week

Especially if you have longer hair, your ends can get dry and split easily. To maintain the health and shine of your hair, you should see a deep conditioner or leave in treatment at least once a week. This will help keep your hair moisturized and enable it to lock it in. Try the Sexy Hair Straight Sexy Hair Leave In Conditioner, TIGI Bead Head Ego Boost Leave In Conditioner, or Paul Mitchell Color Protect Reconstructive Treatment.

Don’t Wash Everyday

You may be tempted to wash your hair everyday but be sure not to. While it may seem like a good idea, it actually isn’t. Washing your hair everyday will strip it of it’s natural oils, which can cause dry and damaged hair easily. If you do need to wash it everyday, use a gentle daily shampoo such as the Paul Mitchell Protect Daily Shampoo or the Pureology Pure Shampoo. You can also use a dry shampoo to give you hair a boost, instead of a wash. Try the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo.

Use The Right Shampoo For Your Hair

Every type of hair is different and so, there really isn’t a shampoo that will work for everyone. If you want your hair to look it’s best, find a shampoo that works for your hair type, whether it be oily, dry, or color-treated. For instance, if you have fine hair, try the Biosilk Therapy Smoothing Shampoo. If you have curly hair, try the Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo.

If you follow these tips on a regular basis, your hair will thank you for it.
