Almost every haircare product promises three things – volume, strength and shine. While volume can be faked using various hacks, the strength and shine of your tresses depend mainly on your lifestyle and hair care habits. And while you can add volume using products, they mostly (if not always) end up making your hair greasy.
But worry not, there are ways to improve the health of your hair and restore its natural shine. How? Scroll down to find out…
This is an effective old-school trick that so many people know about, but hardly ever follow. We’ve told you the disadvantages of washing your hair with hot water, it opens the hair cuticle and strips off all the natural oils from your scalp and hair making it look rough and damaged. Giving your hair a cool-water rinse after washing your tresses seals the hair cuticle and makes it look naturally healthy and shiny.
If your hair is dry or damaged, it may appear dull after it dries down. A quick trick to lock shine into your hair is applying some of the TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Leave-in Conditioner and Split End Mender while it’s wet. Take a dime-sized amount and rub between your palms before spreading evenly all over your strands. Once your hair dries off, it will appear shiny and healthy.
Another quick and easy way to make your hair appear shiny minus the grease is by using a shine spray after styling your hair. However, the trick is to first spritz the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray on your palms and then gently apply to your hair using your fingers. This little trick even works on fine hair as it makes your tresses appear glossy without weighing them down.
