If you are one of the billions of women who want shiner hair, you are certainly not alone! After all, glossy or shiny hair can make you look and feel like a princess. While everyone wants healthy hair shine, there are many things which can make your hair look dull.  Lack of vitamins, chemical color damage and heat damage are a few of the most common dull-hair culprits. If shiner hair is what you crave, use these easy beauty tips to help you learn how to turn lifeless hair into glossy, long locks!

Use heat activated  shampoo If you are a slave to your hair  dryer or flat iron, it’s important to start using heat activated  shampoo every day. Heat activated shampoo can protect your hair from  any damage a flat iron or other hair tool can cause.

  • Deep condition  weekly Whether your hair is normal, fine  or thick, it’s important for you to use a deep conditioner once a  week to help your hair maintain its lusciousness. To help you  remember to do this, choose a day of the week and stick to it. For  example, most people choose to deep condition on Saturday. This is  often because they have a little extra time on the weekend to spend  in the shower. You can get a very inexpensive conditioner product  called “Cholesterol” at most beauty stores, which is highly  effective and will leave you with a cocoa butter scent. You simply  apply it to your hair, leave it on for ten minutes and then shampoo  and condition as normal.
  • Try natural rinse  techniques If your hair is light colored,  try to boost its silky appearance by putting a few tablespoons of  lemon juice into your rinse water, for a natural shine boost. If  your hair is dark, mix apple cider vinegar into the rinse water for  similar results.
  • Use a homemade  hair care mask To get an effective mask  you won’t find at even the fanciest salons, grab eight  strawberries and a little mayonnaise. Start by mashing the berries  with one tablespoon of mayo. Then massage the mixture into your wet  hair after you wash it. Place a shower cap over it and wrap your  hair in a warm towel. Allow it to sit for ten minutes, then wash,  shampoo and condition as usual.
  • Get a hair cut Sometimes hair looks dull and dingy because it needs a trim. For  professional results, hit the salon and ask for your dull ends to be  removed. If it has been a long time since you’ve had a trim,  chances are you’ll need to lose a few inches.
  • Turn to trusted  products Products like a hair serum by  companies like Neutrogena are often a great way to add shine to your  hair. However, keep in mind if you want a shiny and sleek style,  it’s important not to overdo it on the products you do use every  day. Product buildup can quickly dull your hair’s natural shine.  Remember, if you have fine hair it’s important to look for  products with wheat proteins or polymers, because they will make  your hair look thicker. Those with normal hair should look for  products with silk amino acids, which will add shine and soften your  hair structure. If your hair is thick or coarse, pomades will be  able to add great shine.
