Just take a mix of good healthy living, a great haircare regime and the right shiny hair products. And voila, your hair will be glistening and shining like the stars. Read on for all the top tips on how to get gorgeously glossy hair.
Get a head start on shine
Shiny hair is healthy hair. When your hair is smooth, silky and hydrated, it reflects the light and has a beautiful mirror-like quality. Get a good gloss by nourishing your hair from the inside out. A healthy diet can help give your locks that lustrous sheen. Fill up with eggs, oily fish, avocados, nuts and green vegetables. Eating healthy fats in foods that contain Omega 3’s and vitamins A, C, E and K will work wonders for your hair.
To keep your strands in great shape, select the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Really Rather Radiant Divine Shine Shampoo and Really Rather Radiant Divine Shine Conditioner could give you the shiny start you are searching for. They help create gloss from root to tip. Use them together for exceptional shine. Each is chock-full of healthy goodness that gives hair that desirable shimmer. They are packed full of moisture boosting ingredients like raspberry oil, vitamin E, pro vitamin B5, grape seed oil and hydrating aloe vera gel. Our founder Paul has a simple tip for shine. He says, “Rinse hair thoroughly with cold water after using shampoo and conditioner. It will help close down your hair cuticles and give you extra gloss.” So ditch dull hair for good, this pair will help you ‘shine bright like a diamond’. (Just like RiRi says.)
Treat it nice
Wishing for super silky and shiny locks? You’re not alone. The good news is that a regular hair treatment can make your shiny hair dreams come true. Paul says, “A regular hair mask or treatment will help restore vitality to hair, giving it a moisture boost while bringing out gloss and natural highlights.” Why not try Totally TLC Hydrating Mask? This rescue remedy comes with a treatment bonnet, so it treats hair at a higher temperature allowing the nutrients to penetrate deep into the hair. You can apply the mask to damp, towel dried hair in place of conditioner. Just take a scoop and apply firstly to mid-lengths and ends. Then skim apply the remaining mask to the roots and work into the hair. Cover your hair with the bonnet included and leave for 2-3 minutes. Your hair will be back to its best in a flash.
Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Treatment Oil+ is the perfect leave-in treatment to give you that glossy look. Its trio of nourishing oils including carrot seed, macadamia and camellia seed will totally transform locks. Apply the oil to damp, towel -dried hair and work from root to ends before styling. It will give you shiny, silky, glorious hair that glistens.
Super shiny styling
The right styling products are all you need for that superstar shine. For all out gloss, apply the Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair or Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil for Fine Hair. Simply warm 3 - 6 pumps of the product in your palms and apply to damp hair before blow drying. Our founder Adam Reed reveals his secret for giving hair a shine boost. He says, “Add Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil into the palm of your hands and then, using a larger blusher brush, smooth over the surface of dry hair for that glassy look.” “ He also suggests using Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish to smooth and shine the hair to give it a more groomed, polished look. And if you want your shine in a ‘New York minute’ simply spritz your hair with a shine spray. Try ‘A Walk in the Rain Shine & Fragrance Mist’. As Paul says, “It gives the perfect finishing touch to any style and leaves hair beautifully scented.” It’s a doddle to use, just spritz lightly onto dry, styled hair from approximately 30cm away. Instant mega-watt shine that you can keep in your bag to use again and again. It’s a game-changer.
Follow these top tips, and your locks will be glossy, lustrous and shining brightly through winter and beyond. Enjoy!
