Things You'll Need
- Shine shampoo and conditioner
- Natural boar-bristle brush
- 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.
