Why does your hair lack shine?
The lack of shine in our hair is due to a lack of proper hair care. To start with the basics, we need to mention that shampoo is for the scalp only, while conditioners, masks, and serums are for the lengths of your hair. Conditioners are divided into three types: humectant, protein, and emollient. Humectant conditioners are designed to moisturize the hair and retain as much water as possible;
If your hair is dry, frizzy, tangled, and lacking shine, it is this last nutrient that it needs, and if it is properly replenished, you will have beautiful, shiny hair.
The most recommended method of washing hair to get shine and nourishment is the OMO method (conditioner-washing-conditioner).
When it comes to taking care of your hair in the right way to create the ‘sheet’ effect, remember that hair doesn’t like too much heat – don’t soak it in hot water or straighten or blow-dry it too often. If you must style your hair, it’s best to use cold air, and it’s a good idea to rinse your hair with cold water after every wash to close the cuticles and prevent damage. Just as hot water opens the pores in our faces, hot water opens the hair cuticles.
For many women, shiny hair is a dream, but for some, it seems out of reach. In many cases, however, it is best to start with the basics when it comes to choosing the right cosmetics. Learn how to read the ingredients of a cosmetic product or rely on the information available on the Internet. The good news is that there are more and more companies on the market that promote conscious hair care and on their labels, they describe the type of conditioners or masks, together with a description of when to use them. What to do to get shiny hair? Take a look through your hair products and go shopping to fill in the gaps!
