How to make your hair shiny

Sleek, shiny hair is an indicator that it’s healthy and, just like our skin, hair looks its most gorgeous when it’s glowing. Your hair is at its shiniest when the cuticle lies flat but that doesn’t exclude girls with curl and texture to their hair from having gorgeous, glossy locks. Here’s how to make your hair shiny

Evaluate your diet

The health of your hair is influenced by what you’re putting into your body. Make sure you’re including healthy fats, such as; avocado, nuts and seeds, protein including quinoa, lentils and eggs into your diet.

Hydration, hydration, hydration

Dehydration is one of the main causes of dull, lifeless hair. Drinking eight glasses of water every day helps the body to regulate the circulatory system which, in turn, feeds the hair follicle – resulting in gorgeous, shiny hair.

Cool it!

A quick, 30-second blast under cold water at the end of your shower and blow dry will smooth and seal the cuticle, which will guarantee that you’ll be stepping out with gorgeous, shiny hair.

 Deep condition

The most effective way to achieve the sleek, shiny hair is to improve the condition of your locks. We recommend a weekly hair masque to add moisture and condition back into your hair. Get the most out of your beauty sleep with the Grow Gorgeous Overnight to Gorgeous hair masque, which works while you sleep to reveal smooth shiny locks in the morning.

 Get handy with heat

A good blowdry is a super important step in order to achieve gorgeous, shiny hair. Before blow drying, add the Grow Gorgeous Shine Serum to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. The shine serum contains an uncharged silicone which has incredible light refracting abilities, thus, adding a mirror-like shine to your hair.

Make sure you brush up on your blow drying skills in order to get gorgeous lustrous locks. When blow drying your hair make sure you use a nozzle to concentrate the direction of the air and point it downwards towards the ends of your hair in order to smooth the cuticle and add shine. 

Seal that shine

Adding an oil to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair will protect your hair from external aggressors and add a final boost of shine to your tresses. We recommend the Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil to add strength and shine back into dull, weak hair in as little as one use.
