Sleek, shiny hair is the stuff dreams are made of and, with the right products and some careful styling, it can also be a reality. Whatever color your hair happens to be, you, too, can get smooth tresses, just like all those gorgeous creatures on both the runway and the red carpet.

With a little help from Advanced Hairstyle by L'Oréal Paris, you might be surprised at just how easy this is to achieve!

Use protection!

When heat styling - with irons, a blow-dryer or ANYTHING - it's essential to use a protectant. This will prevent hair from getting frazzled and increase your chances of keeping your looks looking all shiny and happy!

If you're serious about getting your tresses to look just right, you should also be keeping up a good haircare routine to maintain hydration and keep hair looking healthy. This means conditioning regularly and using a hair mask once a week. This will help to repair hair and nourish it after heat styling.

The right products for the best results

The easiest way to get super sleek hair in minutes is by applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, before running a flat iron through your locks. Then, work in a little Strand Smoother Serum Spray for an ultra-smooth finish.

Another great alternative is to apply SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly through damp hair before blow-drying. This can help combat frizz for up to three days and will create a super sleek look.

Finally, if you're in a real rush, simply pin your hair up into a ballerina bun and smooth down the sides with LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. Simply apply it to the palms of your hands and run it over the top and sides of your head to flatten flyaways and give the illusion of super straight, sleek hair.

So you see, getting the shiny hair you want really doesn't have to be difficult at all!
