How to make hair shiny: 12 tips from professionals
First, intensive washing. “Brightening shampoos are great when hair looks dull,” explains Candice Witherspoon, expert hair and curl stylist. You see, too much product, be it leave-in products, dry shampoo, hairspray, etc., can build up on the hair over time.
When this happens, your real strands can’t shine through all the residue. You may even feel a grainy texture to your hair, see small white spots on your strands, or experience increased tangling due to this build-up.
The answer: Add a clarifying shampoo to your routine. If you wash your hair every other day, you can use the cleansing shampoo after a week. If you wash your hair once or twice a week, use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a month.
