Who doesn't love a good sleek and shiny hairstyle? But it's not as easy as it might appear: there's a fine line between glossy-looking and greasy. But never fear, the Hairstyle team is here with a step-by-step tutorial for shimmering, shiny locks!
Start your path to shine in the shower! The key to lustrous hair lies in the treatment you give it pre-styling, so begin with a nourishing hair mask or deep-conditioning treatment.
After washing and conditioning your hair, use a hair oil or serum. You'll only need a small drop on your fingertips that you can then apply to the tips of your hair. Once there is barely any product left on your hands, glide them lightly over the top and sides of your head.
The way you blow-dry your hair is crucial to the finished result, and the same can be said for the brush. A flat paddle brush is great for smoothing hair and, when paired with a concentrator nozzle on your blow-dryer, can tame even the wildest of manes! Don't forget a heat protectant spray beforehand though, you don't want to damage the hair fibers.
Ever used a shine-enhancing or gloss spray? It can be used on damp or dry hair, and improves the glossy finish to your hair.
To show off your shiny locks, think about the style you're going to put them in. Long and sleek ponytails are perfect for drawing attention to your glossy hair, whereas a messy bun won't do it justice.
