5 Tips For Reviving Damaged Hair & Making It Shine

For hair that shines brighter than your highlighter.

Everything from colouring your hair to using too much heat can cause healthy hair to become damaged and dull. But if your strands are looking a bit lacklustre, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves that can help give you back that radiance, reducing the look of damage, too. Just follow these 5 simple gloss-boosting tips for achieving shiny, healthy-looking hair.

Tip 1. Operation Oils

Hair oils work wonders on coarse and dry hair. Designed to be used whenever you feel like you need an instant shine hit, the VO5 Invisibly Light Hair Oil comes in an oh-so-convenient spray format so you can spritz and go. Containing a blend of sweet almond, marula, argan and coconut oils, the caring leave-in formula smooths ends, reducing the look of split ends and frizz.

Tip 2. Pro Blowout

Have you ever wondered why your hair looks so shiny and healthy-looking after you’ve left the salon? It’s all in the blow-dry. Recreate the blow dry look at home by applying the VO5 Frizz Free Air Dry Cream through the lengths of damp hair before either blow-drying for a professional finish or letting it air dry for a more tousled effect.

Tip 3. Gloss like a Boss

You’ve heard of the K-beauty glass skin trend but what about glass hair? Like a clear lip gloss, a hair gloss treatment is a clear semi-permanent treatment that doesn’t interfere with your colour, but adds a glossy, reflective shine that lasts for around 4 weeks.

Tip 4. Spray-on Shine

We owe a lot to the person who invented shine spray. These spray-on sheens add instant gloss to the hair whenever you’re lacking shine. But that’s not the only reason we love them. Many shine sprays also offer various additional benefits like volume and frizz protection, not to mention hold, too. The VO5 Tame & Shine Spray controls flyaways and adds a lustrous shine, making it the perfect finishing touch for any hair look.

Tip 5. Ditch the Daily Wash

We know, we know, you want glossy not greasy, but washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural oils, causing it to become dry and brittle. Try to spread out your hair washing days (you can use dry shampoo on the in-between days) for a healthier scalp and moisturised strands.
