Smoothness & Shine Products: How Do They Work?
The most important property of any product for hair shine is a victory over hair scales sticking out in different directions. When the scales are not smoothed, the hair cannot reflect light and, accordingly, it will not shine either.
Another ingredient in such products is shimmering particles: they remain on the hair after drying and work like cut diamonds reflecting light.
Types of professional hair shine products
SalonSecret stylists assure that it is faster (and better!) To achieve shine with professional tools. Let’s dwell on them in more detail.
Dyed curls often do not shine as intensely as we would like, so to get extra shine, it is important to choose not only high-quality professional paint, but also pay attention to the rulers created to enhance the glow effect.
For example, the Majirel Glow series of dyes from L’Oreal Professionnel appeared precisely due to the trend for the most natural and radiant hair shades.
Important! Majirel Glow dyes are not originally added to the base so that the salon technician can select the perfect base tone and mix it with an ultra-shiny shade.
Sprays for hair shine
Leave-in treatments in spray format are incredibly popular today, primarily due to their ease of use. The composition is applied to clean, damp or dry hair and is not washed off: you can style, leave your hair to dry on its own, or, when applied to dry curls, just refresh your hair.
This option is suitable for girls with straight hair, since such sprays slightly dry the curls, working with the surface of the hair. For those who regularly color their hair, it is also better to use a deeper remedy for smoothness and shine.
Hair Shine Oil
Oil is a relatively new format for making hair smooth and shiny: it is applied quite conveniently and, most often, it does not have to be washed off.
Ideal for those who have curls who tend to fluff up and stop reflecting light: oils discipline curls, smooth the surface of the hair and allow color to sparkle with amazing shine.
Mask for smooth and shiny hair
The most basic and effective way to make your hair shine and shine is considered a nourishing mask, which acts on the hair along its entire length and intensively smoothes the scales.
After the mask, the curls become heavy and smooth, as in advertising, but this option is unlikely to please those who continually encounter difficulties in styling, when the curls do not want to stick to the created structure. In this case, it is better to choose a lighter product: spray or oil.
Shine rules: what to do to make your hair shine?
To make the effect of the remedy as noticeable as possible, you should adhere to several simple rules for their use.
- After the mask for shine and smoothness, refrain from using a hair dryer, styler or iron to ensure that the sealed hair structure remains intact.
- Don’t be afraid to apply a fairly noticeable amount of oil to make your hair shine: modern oil-based leave-in products don’t weigh hair down.
- Spray hair shine spray from a distance of at least 20 centimeters to avoid sticking curls and distribute the spray evenly over the entire length of the hair.
- Carry a mini-package of your favorite smoothing and shiny hair product for a refreshing look at any crucial moment.
