  • Long, healthy looking hair

The holiday season is all about giving, so why not treat your hair to a shiny, healthier-looking finish? While a perfectly glossy hairstyle may seem like an evasive unicorn sometimes, you can make it a reality for your mane with certain styling techniques and haircare methods.

Check out our top tips below to get that shampoo commercial hair you've always wanted!

1. Use a leave-in conditioner

Adding a leave-in conditioner to your haircare routine will help to boost the shine-promoting efforts of your regular conditioner. Apply it to damp, towel-dried hair, then style as usual.

2. Cold water rinse

Although it may sound a little uncomfortable, rinsing your hair with cold water at the end of your shower can help to boost shine by closing the cuticles and thus smoothing your strands.

3. Blow-drying

Before starting a blowout, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to enourage a smooth, shiny finish. Then, as you dry each section of hair, keep the airflow pointed down the hair shaft toward the floor for the most shine-prone results.

4. Spray on the shine

An easy way to add shine to dry hair is by misting it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. Not only will this bring some extra gloss to your look, it will also banish flyaways and keep frizz under control.

5. Maintenance

Don't skip the salon because healthy hair requires regular trims in order to stay healthy. Try to go once a month, or once every two months at the very least, to remove split and damaged ends that can spread further up the hair shaft and make the lengths look dull.
