A hair that shines, whether short or long is always attractive and is also an indication that your hair is healthy. There are a lot of ways to have a hair that shines; one way is to go to your favourite salon. However, it’s not always necessary to go to the salon and spend your money just to get a hair that shines. Here are some steps that you can follow.
Use both shampoos and conditioners
A shampoo and conditioner are both essential to having a hair that shines. It provides protection and nourishment to both your hair and scalp leaving you with a very smooth, silky, and shiny hair. There are a lot of shampoo and conditioner products in the market and they also have specific functions depending on the hair conditions that a person has. For example, they have shampoo and conditioner products for people who have falling, damaged, dry, normal, long, short, curly, colored or black hair. It would be much better for you to know which category you think that your hair belongs to because these products have special chemicals that are specifically fitted for the category.
Comb your hair properly
After you take a shower, you have to make sure to properly comb your hair to help untangle those hair strands. Make sure to use a tooth comb, for wet hair because it safely untangles your hair without breaking it. Also, when you comb your hair after you take a shower, you have to make sure to comb from top to bottom but if you feel that your comb will get stuck in the middle because of the tangle, you should try to comb your hair at the bottom until you’ve reached the top and you’ve already managed to untangle your hair. Don’t be harsh on your hair while combing, don’t force the comb down when you untangle your hair because it will cause hair breakage and split ends. Once your hair dries up, you should use a brush instead to make your hair smoother and softer. Always remember to comb your hair for you to have a hair that shines.
Limit the use of hair blower
Hair blower surely helps you have a hair that shines. However, if you always use hair blower, your hair gets damaged and will turn dry because of the heat from the blower. First of all, you should know how to properly use a hair blower. You should make sure not to always directly stick the hair blower to your hair. You should always make sure to have a no hair blower day, or better yet, use your hair blower only every other day to prevent any damage to your hair.
Apply leave on hair moisturizer
Leave on hair moisturizers not only gives you a hair that shines, it also serves as protection for your hair from dusts and other pollutants and from the sun’s heat. Make sure to always have one in your bag for a quick hair fix.
Eat healthy food
For long term maintenance for your hair, you should make sure to eat healthy food. This is because you need to have vitamin and mineral sources that your body does not usually produce. By eating healthy food, you will get all the vitamins and minerals that are needed by your hair and scalp which will result to a silkier, smoother hair and it will also help you have a hair that shines.
Also, if you really want to have a hair that shines, be sure to use both shampoo and conditioner. There are already shampoo products in the market which have a two in one function which means that the product is already a shampoo and conditioner in one. In that case, don’t just rely on using the 2 in 1 product because you would need to apply more conditioner than shampoo to have that shiny hair.
