How to get the perfect shiny hair

Have you ever looked at your hair and thought: "Why aren't my locks as shiny as they could be?" Well, first of all, we're sorry. Second of all, it's not necessarily your fault (unless you've been over-using hairspray or something similar). Your hair needs a few things to look its best, which are easy to obtain but hard to maintain. That's where we come in! We're going to give you some tips on how to get the healthiest and shiniest hair possible.

Use a Silk Pillowcase

  • Reduce frizz
  • Reduce split ends
  • Reduce hair breakage
  • Reduce hair loss
  • Reduce hair tangling
  • Reduce hair damage

Silk pillowcases are great for anyone with curly, wavy hair, any type of hair! They’re soft and smooth, so they won’t tug on your strands while you sleep. Plus, they absorb moisture and oil from your scalp at night—which can actually help reduce the amount of frizz in the morning! If you want to give a silk pillowcase a try, make sure it's 100% pure silk (no synthetic blends). You can shop our Betty Dain - Satin Pillow Case right here!

Find the Right Shampoo and Conditioner

  • Shampoo and conditioner are a lot like clothes. You need to find the right fit for you and your hair.
  • To do this, you'll want to find out what type of shampoo, conditioner, or other product works best with your hair type.
  • If you have curly hair, look for moisturizing products that will help keep curls flexible.
  • If you have oily roots and dry ends, look for a volumizing shampoo that will clean deep into the scalp while still being gentle enough on the skin around it.

We have top-quality brands for shampoos and conditioners for all types of hair! Simply go to our collection here and filter by your hair type to find the best ones for you!

Protect Your Hair from Heat with a Silky Blowout Cream

  • Use a heat protector before using dryers, flat irons or curling irons
  • Use a blow dryer that is not too hot.
  • Use a brush that is not too rough.
  • Use a comb that is not too sharp.

Have you tried Joico - Dream Blowout Thermal Protection Cream? It's amazing! We also have a collection full of heat protectors that you can check here!

Use a Leave-In Conditioner

We are big fans of leave-in conditioners. We love how they make the hair feel and look, and they're also great for days when we don't have time to condition the hair. Leave-in conditioners are basically conditioners that you apply to your hair after you wash it, then let it dry naturally (or styling the way you are used to). This will give you shiny hair without making it greasy (see below).

  • How to get the perfect shiny hair: You can either use a regular leave-in conditioner or get one specifically made for this purpose. Either way, be sure not to use too much—you only need about two tablespoons of product per four cups of water—or else your roots will look oily!

Saints & Sinners - Velvet Divine Leave-In Conditioner is one of our best sellers. It instantly detangles, eliminates frizz, adds shine, protects color, adds moisture, and increases compatibility, strength & manageability while protecting hair against heat and environmental damage.

Finish with a shine & gloss styling product

Add the perfect final step to any style for beautiful, shiny hair. The correct shining spray or oil can attract and reflect light to give hair a gorgeous gloss. Our best seller is the MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray, infused with argan oil, vitamins and antioxidants, this hair shine spray creates an invisible veil of pure, luminous shine which helps protect hair against harmful environmental elements like the sun, salt water and chlorine. It also enhances color and highlights, for hair that reflects beautifully in any light. 

And of course, we also have a full collection of hair styling products for Shine & Gloss, just click here and shop them now!
