Want beautiful shiny, silky hair like you see in those commercials with the beautiful woman flipping back all those gorgeous tresses? It gives me such hair envy every time I see those commercials. I donâ€™t like being envious, so Iâ€™ve come up with a few sure fire ways to get your tresses in tip top condition.
You are what you eat. I know, I sound like your mother. Itâ€™s true though. Lean meats, fish, eggs, beans and low-fat dairy not only make you feel better and be healthier, they are the key that unlocks your beautiful shiny hair.
Come clean. Shampoo your hair every other day for optimal hair health. Once a week, use a clarifying shampoo to remove all the product build up.
Condition, condition, condition. Every time you shampoo, you should be following that up with a nutrient rich conditioning treatment.
Damage control. Try to keep heat treatments to a minimum. When you do apply heat to your hair via hair dryer, hair straightener, curling iron, hot rollers,Â ALWAYS make sure to first apply a thermal protection spray. No matter what the occasion, I am always wearing CHI 44 iron guard. If I didnâ€™t, Iâ€™d hate to think of the state of my hair.
Shiny is as Shiny does. If you are using a shine serum, make sure of two things: first, it is water-soluble so that it doesnâ€™t build up on your hair and second, it contains dimethicol so it doesnâ€™t dry your hair out.
Brusha, brusha, brusha. Use a high quality brush that will help distribute oils throughout to bring out the shine. I recommend using a boar bristle brush to get the smooth hair look that the girl in the commercial sports.
