Secrets To Getting That Shine In Your Hair
There’s nothing more coveted in hair care than achieving that shiny, glossy appearance. Ever heard of glass skin? Well, there’s glass hair too, which describes hair so shiny that it mimics the reflectiveness of glass. Unfortunately, as our hair is constantly exposed to environmental conditions such as the sun, pollution and humidity, our hair’s health and shine decreases each day. In addition, the hair care products we used may not be suitable, quickening the damage process of our hair. However, it’s not all bad news as there are ways to add that gorgeous shine to your hair. Simply follow these steps listed below and have a little patience.
Wash the Correct Way
There’s a fine art to washing your hair correctly without causing breakage. When it comes to shampooing, it’s all about the scalp. It never hurts to spend some time giving a gentle scalp massage as you lather in the shampoo. Trust us, your hair will thank you for this. What massage does is to stimulate blood flow to the scalp, thus rejuvenating the hair’s roots. After applying shampoo and conditioner, give your hair a cold blast by rinsing with cold water. While this is mostly considered an old wives’ tale, this practice can be beneficial for those living in humid countries. Not only does it feel refreshing, but cold water will close the hair cuticle and seal in all the nutrients as well.
Sleep on Silk Pillowcases
A silk pillowcase is the secret to achieving healthy and good-looking hair. Even though most people would gravitate towards traditional cotton pillowcases, cotton has the ability to absorb our hair’s natural oils and create more friction on the hair’s texture. As such, turn to silk pillowcases, which helps to maintain the shine levels of your hair and preserve any hair care products. However, do note that while silk pillowcases can prevent hair breakage, that does not mean they aid in hair loss.
Brush the Hair Daily
Brushing your hair 100 times daily is a little far-fetched, but the idea is there. Think of brushing as a little massage for your scalp, as it stimulates blood flow to the area and promotes hair growth. Since it’s normal for us to shed around 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, brushing helps to get rid of any loose hairs. To create that shine, brushing distributes our hair’s natural oils from the scalp to the ends of our hair, thus lubricating the surface and giving a glossy look.
Apply a Hair Serum
After stepping out of the shower, make it a habit to apply serum as the last step of your hair care routine. As serums are mostly oil-based, it coats the surface of your hair, providing shine on and straightening your hair. What’s great about our Simply Stylin’ Silk Serum is that it is made out of the highest quality pure silicones, which optimizes its effectiveness. Besides adding shine, our serum also eliminates frizz and detangles knotty hair.
