Straighten Up

Model with shiny red hairHair that is flat and straight will automatically reflect light, but any hair texture can get its glow on as long the cuticle is smooth and as flat as possible. This means curls and waves that are styled with as little frizz as possible can also look shiny.

Clean and Gleam

For gleaming locks, keep your strands clean with the right shampoo for your hair texture and type. This will help to keep your natural hair oils in balance, which will get you ahead in the shine game.

Cool Closure

Finish any heat styling session with a cool shot of air. The cool air will not only set your style in place, it will also get the heat out of your strands and allow the cuticle to close so it stays flat and finishes with a nice hint of gloss.
