Below, we list a few tips on how to make your hair shinier without much effort!

7 tips to add luster to your hair

1. Refrain from washing your hair daily

Using shampoo every day is not recommended, as it washes off the natural protective layer on your hair and scalp, rendering it dry and lackluster. Wash it two or three times a week, depending on your hair type. Also, avoid temperature extremes.

2. Don’t blow-dry and flat-iron your hair all the time

Your hair doesn’t like heat, so be gentle to it. Allow it to dry on its own when possible, and limit the use of flat iron.

3. Provide nourishment from within

Your hair becomes shiny naturally if you keep a wholesome diet. Make sure your meals include enough vitamins, minerals, and protein, and don’t forget about omega-3 fatty acids. Also, drink enough water to meet your daily need for fluids.
