How to Get Glossy Hair for the Holidays

Your guide to getting shiny hair this holiday season. 

How to get glossy hair for the holidays doesn’t only involve creating glitter roots hairstyles. Healthy looking locks that glisten can be achieved from hair care and styling products that boost shine. Whether you want glossy curls, slick and shiny straight hair, or a hair color the glistens with the sun, read on to discover a few simple tricks you can try at home.

How To Get Glossy Hair in 5 Ways

1. Use a shine shampoo and conditioner.

One of the easiest ways to get glossy hair is to use a shampoo and conditioner that adds shine to your hair. Use Dove Radiant Shine Shampoo and Dove Radiant Shine Conditioner to prep your hair with a healthy dose of shine before styling. The formula is developed with Nutritive Serum which penetrates into the hair strands and delivers a gorgeous shine that’ll last even after a day filled with holiday fun.

2. Use a styling oil.

Add a boost of shine to your color, curls, updos or straight hairstyles this holiday season with the use of a styling oil like Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil. With just a few pumps of this lightweight oil on damp or dry hair, you’re on your way to hair that has a luxurious and silky shine.

3. Use a shine finishing spray.

Didn’t start your hairstyle off with shiny hair? No problem. With a finishing spray like Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray you can finish off your look with shine. You can use this hairspray as a spot spray— adding shine to the areas you want to highlight — or spray all over your hair for a shiny finishing touch.

4. Use a boar bristle hairbrush.

Styling your hair with a boar bristle hair brush helps evenly distribute the oils from your scalp throughout your strands. For blowout hair styles, use a brush like Nexxus Ibiza EX5 Round Hair Brush when blow-drying to create a smooth and sleek style.

5. Use a shine enhancing heat protectant. 

By now we know heat styling tools— although they give us fabulous looking hairstyles— can damage your locks and cause your hair to become dry. Before creating your fancy-schmancy straight holiday hairstyle, prep with a heat guard that not only safeguards your hair from heat, but also induces shine. S Factor by TIGI Flat Iron Shine Spray  boosts hair with a shimmering shine. Pro tip: Apply this product away from the roots to ensure a weightless finish to your hairstyle.
