Use a heat protective serum

We love to style our hair using heated tools for smooth, silky hair. Using heated tools over time will reduce the shine and degrade the quality of your hair. Try to avoid using them regularly. Always use a heat protectant serum or spray on your hair before turning up the heat.

Brush your hair with care

Brushing your hair immediately after showering causes breakage and frizz. Additionally, brushing the hair vigorously, especially with plastic brushes, can create a static charge, making the hair dry and brittle. Always brush your hair once it is completely dry. Use a wide tooth comb on damp hair for smooth strands.

Q. Does diet affect the texture of our hair?

A. Yes, diet affects the texture of our hair. Healthy, shiny hair starts from the inside out. Our hair needs proteins and vitamins as much as our bodies do. You can take a multivitamin or include foods rich in iron like fish, green leafy vegetables, beets, beans, etc. Incorporate vitamin A, vitamin C, silica and omega-3 fatty acids for a soft, shiny and long mane.

Q. How often should I shampoo my hair for shiny locks?

A. The shampoo cleanses your hair and removes dirt and grime. However, don’t shampoo your hair every day. Excessive shampooing can strip your hair of its natural oils. Instead, consider shampooing two or three times a week. If you have very oily hair, you can increase the frequency. Remember to follow it up with a good conditioner.

Q. Does washing my hair in cold water make it shiny and smooth?

A. Yes, experts confirm that cold water can help seal in shine and minimize frizz. Cold water ensures that your scalp stays cleaner by closing its pores. Hot water opens the hair cuticles while cold water seals the cuticle. Cold water ensures that your scalp stays cleaner for longer, making it less vulnerable to grease, oil, and dirt. It preserves natural oils making it smooth and shiny.
