The key to any great style starts in the shower and the same goes for when it comes to creating shine. Product and environmental buildup can cause strands to become dull and lackluster, a thorough clean is the best way to jumpstart the process. However, a common mistake many make is to only wash once. Lathering up twice allows the scalp and hair to truly receive the benefits of the formula.
Cut Down On Heat Damage
From fading color to splitting ends, heat damage is one of the top ways to strip hair of its sheen. This is because excess heat can harm the cuticle layer, leading to dull appearances. Cut down on damage or aid the air-dry process by adding a do-it-all oil to your routine.
