Shiny hair requires a little TLC, ladies!

Achieving perfectly shiny hair can feel virtually impossible at times. Whatever your hair type, color or cut, it's a problem that a lot of us are constantly trying to overcome. So, why on earth is that glossy finish so frustratingly elusive? As it turns out, we might actually be preventing ourselves from achieving a super sleek look due to a few bad hair habits.

Keep reading to find out which mistakes you could be making, so you can make sure to avoid them from now on!

Overheated strands

Unsurprisingly, over-processed, frazzled hair is seldom inclined to reflect any kind of light. If you're addicted to your flat iron, you might want to consider taking a little heat styling hiatus...

Top tip - Whenever you do use heat to style your hair, you should always use a heat protectant. Check out the Advanced Hairstyle range by L'Oréal Paris to find a whole bunch of affordable options for any and every styling technique!

Dehydrated tresses

In case you haven't heard the mantra before, healthy, hydrated hair is happy hair, folks! Dry hair, on the other hand, doesn't have the necessary arsenal to retain much shine, so it can seem duller than you would like.

Too much shampoo

Washing your hair too often can cause it to dry out, stripping the lengths and ends of natural oils which promote shine. If you can get away with it, wash every other day, or once every three days.

Wrong shampoo

Finally, if you're using the wrong shampoo for your hair type, your hair may struggle to reach that shiny nirvana you've been looking for.
