Simple tricks for achieving shiny hair

You walk into a hair salon, they cut, color, and blow-dry your hair, and suddenly you look like a Hollywood star. Don't we all want our hair to look like that all the time? Unfortunately, many people struggle to maintain shiny hair at home, making it appear as if they've just left the hair salon. But it doesn't have to be so difficult. With a good routine and the right products, you can keep your hair looking smooth and shiny. So if you want to know how to make your hair shine and which products are best for shiny hair, keep reading - here are some strong tips.
1. Trim Split Ends
Firstly, here's a tip you might need assistance with. If you're not skilled at cutting your hair, we recommend visiting your hairstylist. You don't need a drastic change, but it's good to trim off split ends. Dry and split ends make your hair look less smooth. After getting rid of the dry ends, you can start looking for products to help you achieve shiny hair.
2. Avoid Using Drying Shampoos
One of the most important products you can use to care for your hair is shampoo. Shampoo cleans your hair and helps remove dirt and oil. Unfortunately, many shampoos are very drying and contain questionable and harsh ingredients like SLS/SLES. This can leave your scalp dry and sensitive, leading to issues like dandruff or scalp itchiness. In addition, your hair will lose its shine.

Our tip is to switch to a milder shampoo that moisturizes the scalp instead of drying it out and causing various problems. By discontinuing the use of these strong products, your hair will feel better and regain its shine. So it's best to look for an organic shampoo with natural and mild ingredients that won't irritate the scalp. This simple change will help you achieve healthy and shiny hair.
3. Wash Your Hair as Infrequently as Possible
As mentioned earlier, shampoos can dry out your hair. Every wash also removes your hair's natural oils that moisturize and provide a natural shine. Therefore, we would recommend washing your hair as infrequently as possible. If you can, try washing your hair only twice a week to achieve shiny hair.

If your hair gets greasy immediately after washing, you can try our Organic Detox Kit, designed to cleanse your hair from strong chemicals and restore the pH balance and moisture in the scalp. This will prevent your scalp from overproducing sebum, allowing you to wash your hair less frequently.
4. Deeply Hydrate Your Hair
One of the primary reasons hair looks dull and loses its shine is dryness. Our best tip to give your hair maximum shine is to deeply hydrate it. After shampooing, it's good to give your hair a little extra care to restore its shine.

To provide your hair with extra moisture, you need a moisturizing conditioner or hair mask rich in proteins and moisture. Again, it's best to find products that contain ingredients beneficial for your hair. Our suggestion is to try our Intense Moisture hair mask. It provides significant hydration and is designed for dry and frizzy hair, truly helping your hair. By using these products, you can recover and save your hair from dryness, leaving it shiny and smooth.
5. Use Hair Oil on the Ends
Lastly, here's a tip that will provide your hair with an immediate boost of moisture and shine. To make your hair soft and shiny, you can add Under Your Skin Hair Oil to your hair care routine. After washing and blow-drying your hair, use a few drops of hair oil on the ends. This will give your hair a shiny and smoother appearance. 
Extra Tips - Be Gentle with Your Hair
So now you have the best tips for achieving shiny hair, but we want to provide you with some additional advice. When you wash your hair, comb it, blow-dry it, etc., it's essential to be gentle to avoid damaging your hair.
  • Don't dry your hair with a towel. Rubbing it harshly with a towel can damage your hair and make it frizzy and brittle.
  • Don't comb your hair when it's wet. Wet hair is much more fragile and breaks more easily.
  • Use a T-shirt instead of a terrycloth towel. It's softer and helps prevent frizz and damage to your hair.
