5 Tips for Silky and Shiny Hair

  1. Protect from Heat:

    Be sure to apply heat protectant product to your hair before your heat styling or blow drying regimen to protect your hair from increased damage.

  2. Banish Build Up:

    All of the product we use to protect our hair or achieve a particular style can sometimes stick to the hair shaft and create build up. Performing a deep hair cleanse is a great way to restore shine and remove excess build up. Try using apple cider vinegar with a mixture of water to treat and cleanse your mane. Mix a one-to-one ratio of each and apply the mixture in the shower. Shampoo while the mixture is still on your hair and condition as usual.

  3. Chill Out:

    Finish a shower or bath with a cup of cold water on your hair. This will help lock down the hair cuticles, making the surface smoother, which reflects more light and offers incredible shine.

    Water saving tip: Fill a big cup or pitcher with cold water while waiting for the water to warm up before your shower.

    The Cool Shot Button: Use your hairdryer nozzle to direct cool air down the hair shaft. It will smooth out the cuticle and add a nice shine to your hair.

  4. Stay Hydrated:

    Drink plenty of water! Hydrated hair will shine from the inside out as it grows out healthier.

  5. Condition, Condition, Condition:

    Using a deep conditioner or a leave-in conditioner is essential when trying to achieve a shinier, healthier head of hair. Remember, hydrated hair is happy hair.
