We all want naturally shiny and strong hair. We're not talking about greased up, soggy manes, but super shiny hair as a result of fibre alignment and a solid outer-cuticle layer which causes light to reflect and glimmer. Let’s get down to business with these tried-and-tested, shine-inducing hacks.



Remove product build-up


When it comes to obtaining a natural shine on dull looking hair, less is more. You need to de-grease and strip off all the layers of oil and dirt that come as a result of product build-up. L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Pure Resource Shampoo can be used daily or occasionally, for a refreshing wash that leaves your scalp feeling so much cleaner, more nourished and loved.



Lighten up


This tip has nothing to do with your preferred shade of hair, but merely the call to opt for gentler products. Go for haircare alternatives that are not bogged down with heavy waxes. Redken One United All-in-One Multi-Benefit Hair Treatment is such a product. It helps you to manage and protect your hair while achieving enviable lightweight results. Let your true shine come out and play.

Put an end to split ends


The strength of your outer-cuticle layer plays a critical role in obtaining that effortless natural shine. It is imperative to note that split hairs – if left untreated – can grow and travel upwards, thereby destroying your hair shaft and leaving you with dull hair. One way of protecting your hair against this is by trimming the ends at least once every six weeks.


Your hair is your crowning glory. It is worthy of the love and attention you give to your skin and the rest of your body. Getting a healthy shine is not just about what you apply to your hair: it needs to start from the inside. Add naturally glowing hair to your 2019 goals.
