Make Your Hair as Shimmering as Your Personality
Step 1: Choosing the best shampoo for your hair
Nothing says super shiny hair like well-moisturised hair. Use a shine-enhancing shampoo that is rich in moisturisers and your hair will be glowing. Heat activated shampoos and styling products will also add shine to your hair while you blow-dry. One product that you could try to add a dash of shine to your hair is Sunsilk’s Black Shine Shampoo, which has been specially co-created by world-leading hair expert Jamal Hammadi. Made with Amla Pearl Complex, this hair shampoo removes dirt and residue to reveal your hair's natural shine and give you that healthy hair you've always wanted.
Step 2: Keeping it healthy
While simply brushing or combing your hair can make it look healthier and shinier, hairstylists always recommend rinsing off your hair with cold water after washing, to boost its shine.
Another way to achieve shiny strands is to have a proper diet. You always hear about the benefits of eating right, but you never hear about the positive effects it can have on your hair. Maintaining a diet rich in oils (most importantly Vitamin E) is essential to get a shiny mane. Foods rich in vitamin E include: spinach, nuts, broccoli and fruits such as kiwi and papaya.
Step 3: Choosing the right products
Protein-based products are ideal for adding shine to the finish of a hairstyle and giving your hair a healthier look. You can also apply a shine-intensifying hair mask once a week to condition and add gloss to dull ends.
Step 4: Style to Shine
Smooth and sleek straight hair is the best look for shining locks. And what’s more, it’s the hottest hairstyle on the catwalks at the moment! While blow-drying point the nozzle down the hair shaft then finish with a blast of cool air. That's actually the best way to style your hair. At the end finish with a mist of shine spray to give hold and great gloss to your hair. Use a round brush when blow-drying as it adds smoothness to the hair follicle and gives your strands some great light reflection.
Step 5: Home remedies to the rescue
For our last tip for adding shine, you’ll need to raid your kitchen cabinets. Vinegar, strawberries and mayonnaise work well to add a natural shine. By closing the cuticles these products add an instant gloss to your hair.
