How to Add Shine to Your Hair


Is your dull, lifeless hair bringing you down? Your hair is your crowning glory and makes a big difference in how you look. Follow these steps to add shine to your hair and restore life to your luscious locks.

Things You'll Need

  • Shine shampoo and conditioner
  • Natural boar-bristle brush
  • Pomade
  • Apple cider vinegar (diluted)

How to Add Shine to Your Hair

Start with clean hair. Use a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated to add shine to your hair.

Use an apple cider vinegar rinse. Mix 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar into 1 quart of water. You can use a spray bottle to apply it, or for longer hair, you may want to immerse your hair into a sink filled with the mixture. You can experiment with leaving it in or rinsing it out with cold water. Whenever you rinse out your hair, use cold water as it maximizes shine.

Air-dry or blow-dry your hair. If using a hair dryer, be sure to point the dryer downwards in one direction only, and use a diffuser attachment if possible to reduce frizziness.

Brush dry hair with a natural brush. Boar bristle brushes work well to distribute the natural oils in the hair for shine.

Put a small amount of shine product or pomade in your hands, and run it lightly through the bottom and ends of your hair.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may smell like a salad during the vinegar rinse, but the smell goes away when your hair dries.
  • For shiny, healthy hair, try to avoid using heat styling products.
  • For a long-lasting shine boost, you can also go to a hair salon and get a shine treatment.
  • To prevent damage to your hair, don’t brush wet hair because it is more fragile. Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair.
