How to get shiny hair? 5 tips to get shiny hair

Brushing your hair daily is essential to activate circulation. To close the hair cuticles and make it shine more remember to finish your rinses with cold water.

Hair can be short or long, fine or abundant, but one of the aspects that gives it the most beauty is its shine. A shiny and soft mane makes our hair look healthy and revitalized.

In this article we give you the fundamental keys to nourish your hair and take care of it properly, with the aim of making it look much brighter in a few days.

Brush it every day

Grandmothers used to recommend that you brush your hair at least 100 times before going to bed. Today this advice sounds like an anecdote from any story. However, this wise advice hides a scientific reality.

By brushing our hair repeatedly and gently we activate the circulation of the head. We also distribute the natural fat that the scalp gives off, so that we manage to hydrate each hair from the roots to the ends.

To do it in a healthy and effective way we should use a natural bristle brush. Since they are the most beneficial for our scalp and also those that provide a more pleasant massage.

We will comb our hair from the forehead to the ends, and we will also do the same from the nape of the neck, which will provide us with a pleasant feeling of relaxation.

Two minutes a day will be enough and in a few days we will notice the incredible results.

Massaging the scalp

As we have said in the previous tip, massaging the scalp is vital to have a shiny mane. Another way to improve circulation that reaches the hair and nourishes it in depth is to massage the scalp with some pressure , which tends to suffer greatly from the stresses of the day.

We will press with all the fingers of both hands in the form of small circles, with pressure but without it being painful, feeling how we mobilize the tissue that covers the head.

We will start with the forehead area and work our way up to the nape.

We can perform this massage at any time of the day, when we feel tension in the head or alternate it day in and day out with brushing the hair.

Apply coconut oil

Rinse it with vinegar

Another excellent home remedy is to use vinegar as a conditioner. Vinegar not only adds shine and nourishes the hair, but also regulates the natural pH that is often affected by the use of chemicals.

We will use one part apple cider vinegar to three parts water as a conditioner . We will let it act for a minute and we will lighten our hair.

We should not worry about the smell, since it disappears once it is dry. However, if it bothers us a lot, we can add a few drops of essential oil to this conditioner.

Consume beneficial fats

Shiny hair is also the result of proper nutrition. The key to achieving this result is in the fats, but only in the beneficial ones, which are those that provide nutrients to the skin and hair.

Which are?

Nor should we forget to drink enough water during the day , but always outside of meals. Hair is related to good kidney health, so drinking water will help us take care of ourselves on the inside and get a shiny mane on the outside.
