I’m a stickler when it comes to shine in my hair products. I love a glossy look, because sometimes it allows me to “cheat” on my glaze touch-ups when I color my hair — and not only that — it gives me the appearance of healthier hair. (Even when I know I may not have taken the best care of it.) While shiny hair will never take the place of taking better care of our strands, it sure does make for a pretty head of hair! Here are five fabulous products to help bring your crowning glory’s lustre back.
This lightweight combo from Redken helps reduce surface friction on the hair shaft, so your blowout comes out smoother, and more shiny. I also find that my hair seems to dry a little bit faster when I use this as a duo! It smells nice and fresh, and makes my hair look like a million bucks. Have a more coarse hair texture? Add Redken’s Diamond Oil Glow Dry Style Enhancing Oil into the mix for even more smooth, lustrous shine.
This is an absolute all-time favorite of mine! I’ve purchased this time and time again, and I always go back to it. Joico K-PAK is a tried and true classic, and this is the Luster Lock formula for immediate shine and repair benefits. The full-size tube is good for several uses, but I’m also able to get about 4-5 applications out of the travel-size tube. I highly recommend!
You may have seen me feature this on Instagram, and on the blog before — but I have to again because it’s so effective. This lightweight mist contains rose and almond oils for hydration and shine, and smells a dozen divine roses. Bonus: you can also use this as a body moisturizer.
This silky spray from Biolage makes a great detangler, and an excellent shine product at the same time. It has that classic Biolage scent that I just love, and I’ve seen it work in all hair types. This is a keeper.
I’ve found this to be an excellent thermal and UV protectant, especially during the summer. If you’re struggling with frizzies and are in need of a shine boost — give this a shot! It’s affordable, and available at most drugstores.
