Achieve high shine in no time with these tried and true tricks of the trade:
Skip shampoos, and just rinse and condition instead. This will help regulate your scalp's oil production, and prevent follicle dehydration.
Weekly pre/post cleansing treatments aren't just for when your hair looks or feels dry. To maintain a lustrous, healthy-looking finish, make sure to nourish your tresses on a regular basis. Experiment with different formulations and frequencies to find what works best for you (for example: a lightweight, shine-enhancing masque 3x/month; overnight treatment oil 1x/month.)
Guard Against Damage
Thermal protectants — like John Frieda's celeb-adored Full Repair Perfect Ends — are a great way to shield against damage caused by heat styling. A few drops of SPF mixed into your daily conditioner can help keep your color looking rich and vibrant, as well.
Laminate Your Locks
Not all shine products are created equal. To ensure your hair looks luminous and not weighted down or oily, opt for spray formulas with a fine mist, which work on both wet and dry hair (Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing Spray is a favorite).
If you've not yet discovered the benefits of hair oils, like Rodine by Recine, you've been missing out! Whatever your texture, a touch of oil at the ends smooths, defines and adds ample shine.
