Adding Shine To
Different Hair Types
Look for a shampoo that has wheat proteins and polymers as ingredients.
They coat the hair shaft, making it appear thicker.
Learn to use spray volumizers. They light enough to deposit a light mist
of shine in droplets on the hair without wilting it.
Use a shampoo that has silk amino acids. It adds softness and repair
hair structure. Lecithin restores hair texture.
Gels and creams will add shine without weight. First, it's necessary to
pour the product in your palm. Rub your hands together, and then lightly
pat over head.
Thick Coarse Hair:
The best shine enhancers for this type of hair are old-fashioned
pomades. They work not only to deliver shine, but to moisturize this
type of hair.
Tips For More Shine:
* Use heat-activated shampoo
* Deep condition at least weekly
* Don't use too many styling products that can dull the hair by coating
Strawberry Hair Mask:
Mash eight strawberries with one tablespoon mayonnaise. Massage into
washed, damp hair. Cover with a shower cap, then a warm towel. Wash out
with a shampoo/conditioner combination. This luscious mix of rich acidic
berries will leave your hair both conditioned and with rich gloss.
