John Freida Clear Glaze. It has a low pH (4.0-3.5) and I use it in place of Porosity Control. This is one of my staples and one of the best products on the market.

Default Re: Ladies how do you achieve shiny hair?

I don't really use any particular products specifically for shine. I use minimal product on my hair, I'm a firm believer in less is more, I clarify often and make sure my conditioners are rinsed out really well. Cold water rinses are also great for shine.

I wear my hair in braidouts 75% of the time and blow dried and hotcurled the other 25%.

I use a ceramic blowdryer and curling iron, which both add lots of shine to my hair.

Thanks ladies. I think what I've found is you really must thoroughly rinse the hair in order to ensure that every trace of conditioner is removed because any excess can leave the hair dull looking, particularly the thick conditioners. I always rinse with cold water as well, it's not very pleasant but it really does work imo!

Also, I find my hair imparts more shine the more healthy that it is. The right vitamins and diet plays a big part here also.

I add oil to my conditioner if I want extra shine.

What products or tools do you use (ie hair polish, heat stylers)
Vitale Oil Free Hair Polish + Moisturizing twice daily+Oil Sheen to seal

How do you wear your hair normally?
Hair is just past EL so wear it out mostly with the back ends tucked in.

Do you use a clear rinse or semi/permanent hair colour?

No

Any other tips?
Too much product, weighs down my hair so I use Pure Oils (Coconut/Castor/Olive) to seal occasionally 2-3 times a week

Default Re: Ladies how do you achieve shiny hair?

For some odd reason I was born with almost ping pang shiney hair, but when my hair is dry, and damaged (as for anyone else) the shine decreases, I get even more shine by

Keeping my hair moisturized
ACV rinses after every wash (smooth cuticles= more reflection of light)
Coconut or Vatika Oil
Cassia
Argan Oil blends

I just purchased some Bear Fruit Hair Shine Rinses. I got the Red Wine Rinse w/Resveratrol (which is popping up in all these skin/hair products lately)

And the Green Tea and Apple. I'll report back in this thread after I get them and use them if I see a significant amount of shine from using a Shine Conditioning Rinse.

1. ACV or Cold water rinses.
2. Coconut Oil.
3. Stretching my hair taut, blowdrying down it on the hot setting for a few seconds, and then using the cold setting for a couple of minutes. I've only done this once but man, my hair was so shiny afterwards.

My hair started getting shinier when I started using Apple Cider Vinegar. I also mix it with Peppermint, Lavender and Rosemary Oils but before I started using it my hair was very dull and lifeless.
