How to Get Shiny Hair Quickly

It’s easy to make your hair shiner and glossier without spending a fortune. We can make dull or fried hair shine again, no matter how long it is, and we can even straighten it!

Simple Ways To Get Shiny Hair

  • Brush your Hair: Regular brushing of your hair (twice to three times daily) can improve blood circulation. This helps nutrients reach hair follicles. This makes your hair shinier and healthier.
  • Apply an oil treatment: Oil treatments are great for shiny, dull hair. Oil retains moisture, making hair shiny and soft. Coconut or almond oil can be used twice per week. Apply the oil to your scalp and massage it in circular motions. Allow it to sit for between 30-45 minutes, then rinse.
  • A hair mask can make your hair look great. Hair masks can make it more softening, hydrating and nourishing. You can make your own hair mask (more on that later) or purchase one.
  • Make a Change in Your Shampoo: Is your shampoo the right one for you? Different shampoo formulations suit different hair types. If you use an oil-controlling shampoo to treat dry and rough hair, your hair could become frizzy. You can try changing the shampoo to see if your hair reacts.
  • Use both warm and cold water: Warm water can dry your hair, but cold water can cause it to become stiff. However, using lukewarm water for shampooing your hair and cold water for the last rinse can soften your hair and increase its shine. Lukewarm water is good for opening the cuticles and washing away dirt. Cold water (water at room temp) closes the cuticles and seals hair moisture.
  • Avoid Heat Styling: Too often using a straightener, blow dryer, or curling iron on your hair can cause it to become extremely dry, and take away its natural shine. Avoid using heat styling too often. Instead, you can use heat-free styling such as curling rollers. Keratin treatments may also be an option.
  • Protect your hair at night: Your hair can become dry and brittle if it is left open at night. While you’re sleeping, you can braid or pin your hair.
  • Hair dyes can be dangerous. Coloring hair adds personality and fun, but hair can become dry and rough from harmful ingredients like ammonia. Choose a hair color that is free of it. Ask your hairdresser for a good post-color shampoo or conditioner to keep your hair shiny and healthy.
  • A Hair gloss can give you instant results: The hair gloss is color-safe and can enhance your hair’s shine. It protects hair from moisture and closes the cuticles. This makes it softer, shinier and less frizzy. Hair glosses can reduce brassiness in blonde or bleached hair colors.
  • Use a hair spray with a glossy finish: No more hair sprays that leave your hair dry and stiff. Hair sprays with a glossy finish are great for keeping your hair in place, without making it stiff or unattractive to the touch.
  • A Hair Serum: A hair serum will not only improve the hair’s shine, but it will also make your hair silky smooth. Argan oil can be used or any other product on the market. After applying it to your hair, brush your hair.
  • Apply a Leave-in Conditioner. If you plan to swim in the ocean or pool, use a leave-in conditioner. This will prevent your hair from becoming dry and absorbing water from the ocean or pool.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: These fatty acids can be found in fatty fish, nuts and seeds. These polyunsaturated fat acids are very good for hair health. They can also revitalize your hair.

These are some simple ways to make your hair shine. Hair masks can be used weekly to give your hair shine and gloss. A quick hair mask that you can make and leave on for between 20-30 minutes has many benefits. These are some hair masks that you should try:

1. Egg white hair mask
