How to Get Glistening Hair
Glistening hair doesn't just appear, no matter what your hair length and texture, you've got to work for it! Do not expect it overnight, you got to religiously follow these steps to grow that beautiful, healthy glistening hair without even spending long hours in the salon.
Hair serums are made and have been specially formulated to provide frizzy hair a sleek sheen. Hair serums moisturize the hair with a light concentration of oils or silicone. Only apply a pea-sized amount on your hair and manage to distribute it evenly. Just rub it into wet hair with your hands.
Regular conditioners are great and can do lots of wonders to the hair, but if you really want to pump up your hair's shine, add a leave-in conditioner to your routine. Apply this like how you apply hair serum.
You may already use a daily conditioner, but this isn't enough as most products don't contain much more than wax and fragrance. You need to provide and supply your hair beneficial oils to keep every strand shiny and strong.
After shampooing, always finish with a cold rinse. This adds loads of luster to your hair.
Spray the shine
When your hair is dry after a shower, it's always best to finish it with a spray-on shine to give it an extra glistening effect. Some spray on shine contains UV filters that will protect your hair from environmental damage and leave your hair looking lustrous.
Not all the hair that winds up in your brush is a result of natural fall out. You've got to use the right brush that won't tear and pull your hair apart. Do not ever brush your hair when it is still wet; use your fingers instead to detangle it.
No to flatirons
Yes, a flatiron can straighten hair and give your hair a shiny look. But overusing a flatiron and with all the heat it provides, it can damage your hair and can take the life out of it.
You can get a glossing treatment
If you really want that ultra shine on your hair, you can consider having a professional glossing treatment.
Hydrate your body
Drinking plenty of water not only hydrates your body, but keeps your hair healthy and moisturized from the inside out.
Eat nutritious foods
Getting your daily dose of vitamins A and E will give you a shiny and healthy hair. And don't forget about your protein, this promotes hair growth.
No harsh chemicals
Shiny hair is healthy hair, so do not abuse it! Limit your hair's exposure to harsh chemicals, like chlorine from the pool, products with alcohol or anything that can dry out your hair and strip its shine.
