How To Get Glossy Hair


The only thing we’re working out in January is how to get the best hair and we’re starting strong with a few tips for super glossy tresses. This is the holy grail when it comes to great looking hair and can make such a big difference to your finished look, especially in pictures! So if your locks are looking dull after all that partying here’s what you need to do to bring them back to life.


Use A Glossing Conditioner

If you haven’t heard of glossing conditioners before then you’ve been missing out. They’re super hydrating and coat your hair in an unbelievable amount of shine while detangling and reducing frizz. They’ll also give your hair the best starting point and will help to keep it glossy no matter how much heat you use. We’d recommend trying the Body Shop Strawberry Glossing Conditioner for a deep treatment that smells amazing.


Blow Dry

Getting your blowdry right is the key to pretty much everything but it’s especially important if you want your hair to look glossy. You just need to make sure that you blow dry down your hair to smooth the cuticle and to tame any flyaways. This step will help to reduce frizz and make your hair way more manageable so that it’s easier to style. We’d also recommend using a round, boar bristle brush as it’ll really smooth out your hair for a soft finish.


Smooth All The Flyaways

If you want your locks to look really shiny then you’re going to have to get your unruly strands under control. One of our favourite hacks for this is using a toothbrush and some hairspray to smooth down stray hairs at your roots. You can use this for both straight and curly styles and it’s amazing at grabbing those tiny baby hairs. For the lengths of your hair just take a loop brush and remove any tangles before spraying some hairspray on your hands to smooth everything down.


Style It

Have you noticed how shiny your hair looks after heat styling? That’s because having uniformed waves or super sleek hair makes the surface of your locks smoother which gives the illusion of glossier hair. That being said you’ll definitely need to use a heat protectant first so pick one that will work to add more shine rather than take it away. Our fave is the Lee Stafford Original Heat Protection Shine Mist which will protect your hair while making it look extra glossy, yas!


Fake It

The quickest and easiest way to get really glossy hair is to fake it with a shine spray. These clever mists will cover your strands in a shiny layer so that it looks super healthy while helping to hide dry ends and damage. It also makes your hair look insane in pictures so it’s definitely worth using for special occasions when you want it to look its best.

That’s everything you need to get glossy hair in 2019! We hope you enjoyed these hacks and that you’re feeling a little more clued up on getting shiny tresses. We’d also recommend having a read of our post on hairstyling mistakes you’re making and how to correct them which is full of great tips.
