How to Get Fresh and Radiant Hair

Say goodbye to dull hair and hello to naturally fresh and radiant hair.

Having radiant hair is just as important as having radiant skin. Especially with the weather lately, it’s become more challenging to find a shampoo that can bring dull hair to become fresher and more radiant. Fresh and radiant hair completes your look, even if you just leave your hair down or go for a simple ponytail or braid.

Keeping your hair fresh and radiant is easy. In fact, a few tweaks to your hair care routine can help bring out your hair’s natural shine. Check out these easy tips.

1. Use a lightweight shampoo that gives you fresh and radiant hair.

Not all shampoos can cleanse your hair and make it fresh and radiant at the same time. Some shampoos leave your hair greasy and weigh it down, so you don’t look and feel fresh. With a lightweight shampoo that gently cleanses your hair, you get that gaan-natural feeling while avoiding dullness because it doesn’t strip off your hair’s natural oils.

Editor’s tip: Get fresh and radiant hair with the new Sunsilk Naturals Sakura & Raspberry Radiance Shampoo. It is formulated with Japanese sakura and raspberries to purify your hair and bring out its natural shine. It is also gentle, so you can use it every day!

2. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel.

Friction between your towel and your hair can cause overall dullness due to frizz and breakage. Instead of using a regular bath towel to dry your hair after washing it, use a soft microfiber towel or an old t-shirt made of smooth fabric to squeeze out excess water from your hair. Also, pat your hair dry instead of rubbing your hair vigorously.

3. Minimize heat-styling.

It’s nice to have pin-straight hair or gorgeous curls, but using your flat iron and curling wand often can result in dull and damaged hair. The same with blow-drying, especially when you put it on a high heat setting. Limit the use of these heat-styling tools to give your hair a break. And when you do blow-dry or iron your hair, don’t forget to spray heat protectant first to protect your hair from heat damage.

4. Hold off on coloring and chemical treatments.

Experimenting with different hair colors is fun, but this can strip away your hair natural shine. The best thing to do is to give each coloring treatment a four- to six-week interval to let your hair recover from damage. You can also go for balayage or dip-dyed hair—these coloring techniques don’t usually dye the roots so you don’t have to get touch-ups often.

5. Protect your hair from the sun.

UV rays can damage your hair cuticles, causing discoloration, dryness, and dullness. Whenever you go out even for just a quick errand, protect your hair from the sun by using an umbrella or wearing a hat. You can also wear a colorful bandana to cover your hair. It can even double as a stylish hair accessory!

With these easy tips, you can now say goodbye to dull hair, especially when you put Sunsilk Naturals Sakura & Raspberry Radiance Shampoo at the heart of your hair care routine.  Made with Japanese sakura blossoms and raspberry extracts, this shampoo easily gives you hair that’s gaan-natural, that feels fresh & radiant!
