It only takes a quick glance at the Red Carpet of the latest Hollywood movie premiere to put you on the search for shinier and fuller hair. While some are born with the most lustrous of manes, most of us have to work hard on our hair care regimen to get shiny hair with enviable volume.
In this article, find some helpful tips to set you on the path to get immediately more beautiful hair, and fuller, thicker locks in the long term.
5 Steps to Thick and Shiny Hair
- Choose a kinder shampoo and conditioner
Some hair washing products can be damaging to hair, causing it to dry out and become susceptible to breakage. Viviscal shampoo and conditioner are designed specifically for those experiencing hair thinning or hair loss. Gently exfoliating dead skin cells, this shampoo cleanses your scalp. Once cleaned, the moisturizing conditioner helps to soften and nourish for healthy, shiny hair. This creates a wonderful “feel”, improving smoothness and volume.
- You are what you eat
Probably the most overlooked factor in the search for healthier and shinier hair is nutrition. In order to create a healthy environment for hair growth, your body needs a ready supply of important nutrients. These vitamins, minerals and proteins and more are available in certain food groups, but can also be easily incorporated into your existing diet with Viviscal Extra Strength. This targeted dietary supplement is designed to work with your natural hair growth cycle. This is achieved by supplying your body with all it needs to help nourish hair from within.
- Get the right cut
If you feel that your hair is naturally lank and lifeless, there are a couple of easy haircut options you can take to give it a lift. For an immediate result, try a new volume enhancing haircut with light-reflecting layers that add shine. The blunt bob cut with bangs provides a clearly defined structure for your hair, while the precision fringe will frame your face. Another option is to grow out your hair into a longer style. If you have the length to support it, try adding some curls to your long hair. This helps to create a fuller appearance with a charming natural bounce.
- Light up your life
Adding highlights to your hair can help to create the illusion of thick and shiny hair. By contrasting with artificially lightened shades of your natural tone, you will create a sense of depth to your hair. Subtlety is key here, because as if it’s over done, you can quickly end up looking like one of the Spice Girls.
- Fill it out with fiber
If your hair thinning is concentrated in specific areas, you can immediately mask this with hair filler fibers. These microscopic, electrostatically charged fibers adhere to your existing hair to add the appearance of volume. The fibers are matched to your natural hair color, and can be easily washed out with the aforementioned shampoo and conditioner. This is a great way to see immediate results in your quest for fuller hair.
