Quick Tips for Shinier, Springier Hair
For a deep-conditioning steam wrap, shampoo, rinse well, and apply conditioner. Dip a towel in hot water, wring it out and wrap hair in it. Relax in a steamy tub. The combination of the wrap and the bath steam will open up your hair cuticle so that the conditioner penetrates more deeply. After about fifteen minutes, rinse.
“Don’t shampoo very
curly hair everyday”
Don’t shampoo very curly hair everyday–once or twice a week should be sufficient. On other days, rinse with water, apply a light leave-in conditioner, if need be.
To minimize the frizziness in very curly hair, apply a leave-in conditioner with silicone after washing. To restore any curl that the silicone takes away, coil sections around your index and middle fingers . Then, don’t touch hair until it’s 100% dry. Let air-dry or diffuse from 3 to 4 inches away.
Enhance shine with a bit of silicone-based product. After washing, place one drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and, starting at the ends, work your way up the shaft, avoiding roots. A volumizing conditioner will thicken fine hair and make it manageable.
If your hair is so fine, it tends to fall limp and flat, try conditioning it before you shampoo. Leave on a few minutes and wash. Hair won’t be weighed down by conditioner left on strands.
Adopt a habit of cold-water rinses. They help close the cuticle, and the flatter the cuticle, the shinier the hair.
Try a moisturizing shampoo to gently cleanse and add welcome hydration to dry hair.
If your hair is fine, thin, short and not dry, skip conditioner altogether.
