Did you ever think getting shiny hair was as simple as washing your hair right? Well it is! You can literally wash away dull hair and make it look smooth and glistening just by following these few simple steps. So what are you waiting for? Make you hair glossy just like the kind you see in advertisements with these steps.

Choose the right shampoo: Using the right shampoo for your hair type is essential for getting the best results. And if shiny hair is what you want , try a shampoo that helps retain the moisture in your strands like Sunsilk’s Black Shine Shampoo.

Use the right brush: Getting shiny radiant hair can be as simple as using the right hairbrush. Use a brush with boar bristles, as it will reduce breakage and also help distribute your natural hair oils more effectively.

The last rinse: While washing your hair, finish with a last rinse of cold water. This helps seal your cuticles that help reflect natural light off your hair lending more shine. For a better effect you can mix vinegar with a little water while rinsing your hair.

Home remedies for shine: Mix your shampoo with baking soda to help remove dirt and product build up in your hair, leaving you hair soft and shiny. You can even try mixing honey and your conditioner, to deep condition your hair for maximum shine.

Dry it right: Instead of twisting your wet hair in a towel or rubbing it dry, just lightly pat it to retain the moisture in your hair. Air drying your hair will also ensure you don’t remove any moisture from your hair.

Finishing touch: Once your hair is nearly dry just apply a little frizz taming serum to ensure your cuticles are tamed and your hair looks its glossy best before you step out. You can even spray a shining gloss on your hair to get the desired shiny hair.

You didn’t think that shiny hair could be this simple did you? So just wash away the dullness from your hair and let it shine every one, just like your personality!
