We take our tresses seriously. That’s why our bad days are typically those when they decide to misbehave, becoming dull and lackluster. Let’s all agree that achieving that glossy sheen in our hair with an extra bounce to it can do wonders for our confidence and how we present ourselves to the world. We’d do anything to make that happen.
No, you don’t have to move mountains, instead follow these time-tested tricks to get that shine in your hair and maintain it.
Oil Your Hair
The secret to a well-moisturized mane is to apply hair oil a maximum of twice a week. Run it through the ends, leave it on for a bit and then blowdry to lock the moisture in. Yes, your beautiful hair needs hydration too.
Treat Your Scalp
Dry and undernourished hair? How about getting to the root of the issue? Hair sprays are for topical fixes. It would help if you went deeper, quite literally, to the scalp of the matter. A good oil massage to the skin is what your hair needs to look bright and beautiful.
Using double conditioning on your hair makes it dry. Remember, we wash with conditioners to add moisture, not to take it out of your tresses. So, instead of overdoing it, use leave-ins like serums, mists, and oils to add extra shine.
Rinse With Apple Cider Vinegar
Product pile-up is a severe consequence of using excessive enhancers. The excess build-up of particles clogs the cuticles blocking entry to all the nutrients needed to make your locks shine. Also, the harsh water residue that remains in the hair over time makes it brittle. Rinsing with a clarifying shampoo or plain old apple cider vinegar will help clean your hair, and prep it to receive nourishment.
Go Silk For Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases cause less friction while you sleep and allow your hair to breathe and retain the smoothness without getting tangled. If you want to feel like a princess when you wake up, sleep like one!
Brush Your Hair Everyday
It’s not just your teeth that need daily attention; your lustrous mane does too. Take a broad-toothed boar brush if you will and run it through till the ends and repeat several times lightly and lovingly.
Follow these simple tips and trust us, your hair will return the favor tenfold by making you look priceless during the day!
