01. A nourishing hair oil
Your mother was right about this one! Oiling your hair on a regular basis provides nourishment to the ends that may often get ignored. Coconut, almond or even essential oils like rosemary and lavender can be used to add extra TLC to your mane once a week. Do a hot towel treatment to improve absorption of the oil for better results.

02. A shine-boosting shampoo and conditioner
If your ultimate goal is shiny hair that has lasting luminosity till the next wash, you need a shampoo and conditioner duo that does just that. Silicone-based shampoos form a shiny layer that sits on top of your hair, locking the moisture in and giving your hair a reflective quality. Make sure to alternate with your regular shampoo to avoid silicone build-up on your scalp.

03. A shine serum
A hair serum is an essential leave-in treatment that protects your hair from daily environmental damage and keeps it looking healthy. For a shine-boost, look for ingredients like argan or camellia oil that can nourish your hair from deep within, control frizz and add a vibrant look to it.
BB picks: Tresemme Keratin Smooth Hair Serum
04. A weekly repair mask
Hair that is damaged is dull, that is just a fact. The daily wear and tear your mane goes through requires special care from your end, at least on a weekly week basis. Treat your hair to a deep-conditioning, repair mask in order to contain the damage, re-hydrate the ends, make it more manageable and of course, boost shine.
BB picks: Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask
05. A styling spray
If you are a fan of creating awesome hair looks, a shine-boosting hair spray should always be on your vanity at all times. Even when you do not have a lot of time to maybe oil or mask your mane, a quick spritz before you step out is enough to make your mane look so glossy in minutes!
