Your hair is a great way to express who you are and, like the rest of your body, your hair is vulnerable to wear and tear, damage and dryness. A summer by the sea may be a wonderful holiday, but powerful UV rays as well as heavy exposure to salt and sand can damage your hair just as it can damage your skin. Colder seasons can also affect your hair, with dry air making your hair static and the cold giving it a flat appearance. Discover our below guide on you can maintain healthy, shiny and thick hair. Treat your hair well and it will radiate.

6 Tips For Shiny Hair

Hair Care Experts say that often the reason people have dull, dry hair is simply because they don’t wash their hair properly.

To keep your hair at its shiniest, follow this hair washing routine:

  1. Wet your hair with the warmest water possible, in order to open the cuticle layer.
  2. Apply shampoo and massage it into your scalp using the pads of your fingers.
  3. Rinse with cold water in order to seal the cuticle layer.
  4. Squeeze out the remaining water before applying conditioner.
  5. Massage conditioner into the ends of your hair and rinse thoroughly.
  6. Blot your hair dry, do not rub or wring it, your hair is at its weakest when wet!

For Dry, Damaged & Frizzy Hair

Damaged Hair Enemies

Your hair is very sensitive, and if it undergoes a lot of stress, it can actually begin to break and lose its suppleness. Your hair is most damaged by heat and dryness—crimpers, hair curlers, hair straighteners, dyes and colouring, excessive and overly hot blow drying, and even sunlight dry out and damage your hair.

Avoid hair styling appliances that apply heat directly onto your hair, or don’t use them daily. When you do use heat styling tools, protect your hair with a Heat-Protective Control Mist. Remember to protect your hair from the sun, just as you protect your skin, with a Sun Protection Mist.

Brush Your Hair With Care

  1. Choose a hard rubber brush, or a brush with a rounded cushion, to avoid hair from being tangled into the bristles.
  2. If your hair is tangled, do not try to brush out the knot from the root. Focus on the knotted part and brush it out directly, otherwise you’ll just be knotting your hair even more.
  3. Always brush with a gentle touch, don’t pull or twist your hair too much, especially if you blow dry it.
  4. When in doubt, ask your hairdresser for what he or she thinks is the brush most suited for you.

Reverse Cleansing

  1. Apply a hair mask onto your hair before washing it, to add the benefits of your own hair oil to the product’s benefits. Wrap your hair in a warm towel to open the dried out cuticle layer more easily and help it lock moisture in.
  2. Apply shampoo for oily hair to your hair without rinsing the mask, to prevent your hair from drying out too much.
  3. Apply conditioner onto the ends of your hair.
