    Everyone's hair is shiny, go outside in the sun and look in the mirror. It also comes from your good genes, and if you're eating all the healthy foods from Mother Nature, not products made by man like supplements from GNC, or hair products by John Frieda.

    It is more shiny, if your hair is stick straight, not so much if your hair is curly.

    One method to make your hair look fuller, add body, bouncier, thicker, more volume & shiny hair is to set your hair with plastic curlers, you'll end up with uniform balance of curls. Blow dry while curling them in curlers. Take them out, and finger comb to style. Used by the best hair color models, and the fashion industry, like Victoria Secret Fashion Show Dec. 2009, America's Next Top Models, EXPRESS models seen in Glamour magazine Sept. issue, and are continued to be used today where salons care about pampering your hair. When you see hair on TV a hair color commercial, they're not done by curling or straightening tools. Hair that shines like that and feels like hair, not hay, has to be done by the best hair tools available w/out damaging to the hair. When you take the curlers out, finger comb to style or lightly brush. Tousle the hair up. or shake your hair. You can use large, medium or small curlers, that depends on the length of your hair.

    Niecy Nash - Dancing with the Stars recently seen using it backstage, too!…

    Even used in Miley's newest hairstyle.

    The hair industry is a billion dollar business, their aim is to make tons of profits, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss. Shampoo is meant to clean (Google it), and if they do other things like GROW, OR MAKE YOUR HAIR MORE VOLUME, they're lying. It's all about marketing to attract more buyers.

    The photos you see in the magazine ads or TV advertisements, took a lot of manipulation: hairstylists to do hair, photographers & his assistant to adjust lighting, and several shots of films, and the model 8 hours to be photographed. It's the trick for the hair industry to sell and temp the buyers. Their job is to make tons of money, but they don't tell you everything why, what, when and how. They also don't give you money back guarantee for damaged hair.


    I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80's & 90's. I've known people in their 30's whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70's.

    Rinse your hair with cold water, when your hair is wet brush with a big comb that is very spaced out. Try a leave in conditioner right after you brush, blow dry with cool air, always use heat protection , to finish with 'chi silk infusion' when you're done it will give it a healthy shine when your done, especially if you flat iron and blow dry. The less heat the better. I started leaveing my hair natural for six months, it's way healthier I can feel a difference, I just put in heat protection, leave in conditioner (when wet) and silk infusion when it's dry.

    well you have to start with a good base, so you need to get yourself some salon shampoo and conditioner.

    other than that Bedhead do a shine spray which is excellent, doesn't make your hair greasy, is light and smells lovely too.

    Also bear in mind that straight hair always looks shinier than curly

    At the end of your shower, turn the water so it's really cold and rinse your hair with it.

    If you blow-dry your hair, use the coldest setting at the end once it's all dry.

    Both of them seal the cuticles so it's smooth and shiny :)

    Don't brush your hair when it's wet (unless it's extremely slick with conditioner or detangler). Hair is very weak and brittle when wet so brushing can stretch it and break it. You might be able to comb it though.

    Protect your hair while using heat tools and try to use them only four times a week. This should keep your hair healthier.

    Use ionic styling tools. Such as ionic hair straighteners and blowdryers.

    Look for shampoo and conditioner that does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Ammonium Laureth Sulfate. This is especially important if you have curly hair. Be careful however; mild cleansers wont be able to get rid of silicone or wax.

    Try looking for shampoo and conditioner with mint and tea tree oils for oiliness.

    Rubbing lemon juice and apple cider vinegar into your roots ensures a shiny look and prevents oiliness and frizz. Be careful if you have dark hair when using lemon. It can bleach your hair.

    Avoid chemicals as much as possible. Dyes and relaxers are very bad for your hair. If you have to do it, make sure not to leave the chemicals on too long and do not do it often. Read the packages to see how often you're supposed to wait between treatments.

    8Have someone trim your ends every once in a while. If you think you can do it yourself, go ahead. But have someone else look at it afterward to make sure it's straight.

    9Don't rip your brush through snarls. If you don't have detangler spray, wet the area and apply lots of conditioner to work it thorough. Sleeping with your hair in a bun or braid can make it easier to brush in the morning and will control some of the frizz (if you have it). Brush gently and slowly work the tangles out. Be sure not to wash hair too often as it will dry hair up and may cause oily/greasy hair. If you have dry hair use a hydrating shampoo.

    After shampooing your hair rinse it out with cool water and use conditioner with cold water. This will seal the cuticles and prevent frizz.

    Deep condition your hair with deep treatments or hair masques. You can also use the following home remedies:

    Mayonnaise: Smear real mayonnaise all over your hair (again, for the folks with oily scalp and skin, don't rub it into your scalp or too close to your hairline) and make sure to really work it into the ends. Make sure your hair is completely dry. The amount depends on how much hair you have and the texture of it. Wash your hands, then wrap your hair in a towel if it is long enough to be wrapped. A shower cap or plastic bag on your head will also help contain it.Keep it like that for about an hour.Get your hair soaking wet, then shampoo it. You may or may not need to use conditioner. Style your hair the way you normally do.(You are going to smell like potato salad. Be sure to take a shower before going out in public with mayo hair.)

    Eggs: Crack 2-4 eggs (depending on your hair length) into a bowl. Separate the yolk from the whites then pour a cup or more (depending on hair length) into the bowl. Pour olive oil in the bowl, just enough to cover the yolk. Shampoo your hair in lukewarm water then put mixture in your hair. Let it sit for 5-6 minutes, then rinse it with cold water. Warm or hot water can scramble the egg.

    Aloe Vera & Honey: Mix equal parts conditioner, aloe vera gel, and honey together. Massage through dry hair and leave in for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to get an aloe that does not contain harmful ingredients such as alcohols. A mix of Jojoba oil and honey also works really well.

    Coffee: Brew some regular coffee. Let it cool down but make sure its still warm. Pour it throughout dry hair then twist wet hair into a bun. Let sit for 30 minutes then rinse out and use your usual shampoo and conditioner. This will also enhance color. (warning hair darkening may occur)

    Apple Cider Vinegar: Comb or brush your hair. Shampoo your hair with your usual shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly with warm running water to eliminate any residual shampoo or build-up that's accumulated on the hair.Measure two cups of apple cider vinegar and one cup of water and rinse hair carefully with the mix. Leave vinegar and water mixture on your hair for fifteen minutes. Rinse the vinegar off your hair with clean warm running water until the vinegar smell dissipates.Comb out hair carefully and you will find your hair is now detangled, healthy looking and manageable. Repeat process every week or less if desired.

    Apple cider vinegars acidity is close to that of natural hair, it's a good conditioner and cleaning agent and it's also an effective germ killer.
