Soft and shiny hair takes a bit of effort. Proper hair care is the only way for both men and women to get shiny, silky and smooth hair. Like skin, hair just looks better when it glows. Having shine means your hair is healthy. Hair shines best when the tiny scales on the cuticle lie flat (as is the norm with straight hair), bouncing back light rays. Here's how to add luster to the hair you've got. Tips To Make Your Hair Look Shiny 1. Coconut Oil To get shiny hair, it is important to provide nourishment by applying oil to your hair regularly. Make sure it is organic and unrefined. Also, the main goal is to condition your ends; not the scalp where much of our natural oils are already present. So, apply the oil starting from the ends, then up. 2. Eggs Eggs are perhaps one of the best ingredients to provide nourishment and shine to your hair in minutes. Being a good source of protein, fatty acids and lecithin, eggs help repair damaged and dull hair by adding moisture and shine. Eggs also help make your hair strands strong and thick. 3. Avocado Avocado contains nutrients that will deeply moisturize and nourish your hair. This in turn will make your hair smooth and shiny. Avocado is also extremely good for dry and damaged hair. 4. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar is a fabulous hair conditioner that can make your hair soft, shiny and moisturized. It also helps remove built-up residue that makes your hair look dull and lifeless. Plus, it can help treat dandruff, itchy scalp and frizzy hair.
