Shiny healthy hair equals younger looking hair. Fact. And with women using heated tools more and more it’s no wonder our locks are starting to look drab and dull! So treat your hair to a shine boost and anti-age your hair at home! It’s the key to losing five years!
For really dry hair
Charles Worthington Salon At Home Diamond Shine Gloss Treatment, £12.99 boots.com
is infused with diamond powder to penetrate even the dullest hair! For extra oomph apply over dry hair, cover with a warm towel and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing and styling.
For curly hair
“Remember if you have curly hair to use your fingers
to ‘comb’ through your curls as brushing will make it frizzy and can
take away the shine.” says Mark Hill
For a deep treat
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Shine Deep Treatment, £4.99 nationwide,
should be used twice a week and left on for the whole 3 minutes to give it time to penetrate the hair properly so the pearl powder can do it’s job – so don’t rush the rinse!
For heated tool addicts
Celebrity stylist Paul Percival told us, “The most common mistake people make when they are drying their hair is to tip their head upside down which lifts the cuticle causing frizz. Always direct the hot air down the hair flattening the cuticle and keeping hair glossy and smooth.”
Phyto Gloss Colour-enhancing express treatment – platinum, £20 spacenk.com is a hero product for blonde hair. Notoriously hard to get shine, dull blonde hair can often leave your complexion looking flat. This will boost your blonde, neutralise yellow and hydrate hair leaving it looking like new!
For those short on cash!
Hair legend Mark Hill recommends, “If you really want to add a natural shine to your hair, then add ¼ cup of vinegar or beer to your final rinse after you have shampooed and conditioned. This will help lock the cuticles of your hair making it easier for the light to bounce on the hair, enhancing its shine.”
