Ultra-Shiny Hair…

12 Nov

This is a short one, but one that you can do every day! When taking a shower, here is a two-part tip for ultra shiny hair:

Shampoo and Condition before you take care of any other business. While you are exfoliating, shaving, etc, let your conditioner sit for at least 3 minutes. Right before you turn off the water, turn on a quick burst of cold water to wash out that conditioner.

The cold water closes the cuticle of your hair, locking in the conditioner and moisture. Blow dry your hair completely (leaving some moisture in the hair will cause it to dry with a coarse texture) with a flat brush for extra shiny locks!

RUNWAY: Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Shampoo & Conditioner, $17 & $18, Bumble & Bumble stores & online at BumbleandBumble.com. This set is one of my all-time favorites. When I lived in NY, the Bumble & Bumble Salon on West 13th would offer models free salon services if we brought in one of our comp cards. This seaweed extract concoction feeds roots and adds loads of shine.

MY WAY: Mirra Smoothing Shampoo &  Conditioner, $4, Kroger. Yeah, yeah. I know it’s a grocery brand. But I will tell you that for the money, this is a great brand. I recently bought this smoothing formula, yes– because of the pretty colors on the lids, and my hair felt noticeably smoother after the first wash. Just try it out. Don’t be a shower snob 🙂
