This one seems a strange one, but the single easiest way to keep your hair looking good is to be gentle with it. Ripping and tearing at tangles and frying it on the straightening iron are only going to leave it parched and ugly. Keep heat treatments to a minimum, and handle it gently.
Rinse, baby, rinse.
One of the cheapest, simplest and best methods to soft shiny hair is a simple vinegar rinse. Everyone can use apple cider vinegar, and it’s benefits for your hair are huge, but you can also substitute lemon juice or spirit vinegar for blondes or malt vinegar for brunettes if you wish. Use a half water half vinegar rinse through your hair to help close the cuticle, remove build up and leave your hair soft.
Deep condition regularly.
Try deep condition at least once a month, and you can move that up to once a week if your hair is dry or damaged. You can use an over-the-counter mask, or make your own inexpensively at home with simple ingredients like mayo, coconut oil, honey and aloe vera. Warm it up, work it through, leave it to soak for an hour , rinse it out and voilà… shiny hair in an instant.
Avoid harsh chemicals
Don’t use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Ammonium Laureth. They’ll strip your hair of all the moisture. Look for gentler ingredients- your hair will love you.
Clarify for product build-up
If your hair is looking manky no matter what, don’t go buy another expensive product- use a little baking soda in your normal shampoo for a quick, cheap clarifying shampoo to clear off all that build-up. Use a vinegar rinse afterwards for best results.
A good trim goes a long way.
And it doesn’t have to be at the salon. Split ends look dry and manky, but you can use a [quality] pair of barber scissors at home to snip out individual split ends [think ‘search and destroy’] and stretch time between salon visits.
Your comb is your best friend, your brush- not so much. Make sure your comb is free of snagging seams, and do the heavy work with it. Use your brush for smoothing at the end, not tangle control.
A great diet
Follow these easy and inexpensive tips and you’ll have shiny hair in no time.
