Our newest obsession is naturally shiny hair, as seen on the fashion runways this year. Get in on the ultra-polished hair trend by following these three steps.
Start with a shampoo
Achieving shiny hair starts in the shower. For those with blonde hair, Loreal Professionnel Blondifier Illuminating Shampoo gently cleanses hair and emphasizes multidimensional shine. Darker hair types should opt for something like Loreal Professionnel Nutrifier Shampoo which lifts dirt and grime without weighing down hair, while the coconut oil works to boost shine and increase manageability.
Follow through with a mask
An intensely-nourishing mask, such as Loreal Professioinnel Absolute Repair, can not only soften your locks, but also smooth out your hair cuticle - a necessary step in upping how much shine bounces off your hair. Hairstylist Caitlin Bono of Jon Tomas Salon speaks highly of this product: “This repair mask contains ingredients that actually go into your hair shaft to improve the quality of it, from the inside out. It is also lightweight in texture and won’t weigh your hair down.”
Finish with a styling spray
A finishing spray is where you can really take your shiny hair look to the next level. Something like Loreal Professionnel Techni.Art Extreme Lacquer Instantly holds hair, locking the desired style and volume while enhancing natural shine with exceptional shape memory. “This is L’Oréal’s strongest hold professional spray for a light yet gleamy effect,” explains L'Oréal Professionnel's Guest Artist. “It is the perfect product as it helps to smooth away any fly-aways, leaving the hair looking naturally shiny. The great thing about this product is that it does not leave your locks feeling sticky or heavy.”
