You might not realize this, but something as simple as your shampoo and conditioner can have an impact on how your hair looks and feels. For the most part, you’ll want to wash your hair every other day. However, when you do, make sure to use the right treatment for your hair type. To get shiny hair, we like formulas that provide us with a deep clean while also making our hair smoother and more manageable.

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Shampoo and TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Conditioner. This power duo is enriched with shea butter oil and vitamin H to keep your hair moisturized, frizz-free, and shiny. 

2. Nourish your locks.

If your hair looks dull, revive it by introducing a weekly hair mask into your regimen. Masks can provide your damaged tresses with some much-needed hydration and moisture to help improve your hair’s health.

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask once or twice a week to pamper your hair and make it smooth and frizz-free.

3. Snip annoying split ends.

No matter how you spin it, split ends will never look attractive. To begin your quest for shiny looks, you’ll need to get rid of those dead ends. If you’re scared to lose length, consider snipping just an inch or two. You’ll be amazed at how this simple technique can refresh your look.

4. Stay away from the heat.

Step away from heat when you want your hair to really shine. Wear a hat or use an umbrella when going out to protect your hair (and your skin!) from the harsh rays of the sun. Also, give your hair a break from heated styling tools. Experiment by styling hair and letting it dry naturally on those no-heat days. And when you need to blow-dry or iron, make sure to coat your locks with some heat protectant spray.

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray to prevent heat damage while smoothing out frizz, too! 

5. Use shine enhancers.

Certain products can really help give your hair a boost of shine. A hair serum is great for a mid-day refresh and also for helping you tame all the frizz.

Editor’s tip: Apply TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops to give your hair shine and keep it from looking dry and dull. 

Now, you know how to get shiny hair with these easy tips. Make these hair care practices a habit, and you’ll be flaunting beautiful, shiny locks in no time.
