A power-packed final rinse is a simple way to give your hair a shiny edge.
To do this, mix one cup of cold water with 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Once you’ve finished shampooing, pour the mixture over the lengths of your hair. Let it drip for a few minutes and then pat your hair dry with a towel. Along with balancing the pH level of the scalp, apple cider vinegar is ideal to add shine to the hair naturally.

This cocktail of vitamins invigorates the hair from within so that they’re healthy from the inside and glossy from the outside.

Scrub away
 

Scrub away

If you’re wondering why your hair looks dull, one of the major causes could be scalp build-up. To get rid of this, add a scalp scrub to your hair care routine. To make one at home, mix 3 tablespoons of coarse rock salt with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Combine the mixture and gently rub it into your scalp using the salt granules to exfoliate it. Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes and when washing away with shampoo, cleanse until the salt dissolves. While the coconut oil moisturises the hair, the rock salt removes scalp residue and leaves it completely cleansed. That’s all you need to remove dullness from the root and get wonderfully shiny hair!

Slip on a mask
 

Slip on a mask

When your hair lacks lustre, it’s a sign of it being undernourished. Therefore, the simplest beauty tip to turn things around and get shiny locks is a nourishing hair mask. To make one yourself, combine 2 eggs with 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Blend it together thoroughly until it emulsifies and apply the mixture over the entire length of your hair. Let the mask sit for 40 minutes and then wash it off with warm water.

Protein-rich eggs naturally lend shine to hair and when combined with nourishing olive oil and moisturising honey, that effect is doubled. Healthy, glistening locks will be yours before you know it!
