Who wouldn’t like to have sexy, shiny hair? Try these hairstyle secrets to crank up your hair’s shine factor so high you’ll practically need sunglasses.
Stock up on shine-enhancing hair products.
Love the feeling of your baby-smooth, perfectly soft skin after using a face mask? Well you can bet that your hair benefits from the same TLC! Using a moisturizing hair mask like Fekkai’s Hair Mask With Shea Butter once a week will help glossify your hair.
Spend a little QT with hair tools.
“Use ionic flatirons and curling irons to defrizz strands. They also work better at sealing shine to the cuticle than non-ionic dryers,” says Marie Ferro of Marie’s Hair Studio. If you’re doing an at-home blowout, blast hair with cool air during the last two minutes to up the gloss and cool down roots.
Heat-proof your hair.
Since we’re on the subject of ironing and blow-drying, spritz your hair with a thermal spray before you fire up the hot tools. It’ll protect hair from the heat and add a little gleam. Especially for curly girls, “Rene Furterer’s Myrrhea Anti-Frizz Silkening Fluid not only shields your wet strands but infuses shine as you blow-dry,” says says celebrity hairstylist Richard Marin.
Avoid mattifying hair products.
Even though hair oil sounds like it would do something unpleasantly greasy to your hair, Moroccan Oil, Josie Maran Argan Oil and even coconut oil have been the latest, surprisingly light style weapons of choice, says Ferro. The trick is to use very, very little at a time and, of course, avoid the roots that naturally get slick first. Shine-killers to avoid? Matte pomade, dry hair shampoo and overworking your hairspray, says Tricomi.
Keep your ends tidy.
For healthy hair, you must go for a trim trip every six to eight weeks, says Henriquez. By keeping those split ends at bay, you’ll prevent breakage from reaching the roots. A little trim goes a long way to help you and your hair shine! GET THE REST HERE!
