Do you also dream of beautiful and shiny hair? Then keep reading - here are our very best tips for hair so glossy that you cannot avoid receiving lots of compliments.
HEALTHY HAIR HAS MORE SHINE
Your hairs health and thus it’s shine is affected every single day by everything from pollution and weather conditions to hair products and styling tools. However, the natural structure of the hair can also cause less shine or no shine at all. But don’t worry – here are 8 tips that work for all types of hair.
Before you read on, take a look at your hair tips. If they are dry or split, then it is important to book an appointment with your hairdresser. Regular haircuts make it much easier to achieve healthy and shiny hair.
Well, let’s get started!
1. WASH YOUR HAIR THE HEALTHY WAY
If you use a shampoo with aggressive sulphates, you may get clean hair, but not healthy hair - a healthy hair is what you should strive for if your goal is to have a naturally gorgeous shine. If you want to wash your hair in a healthy way, you should choose a shampoo with natural and gentle ingredients
All ZENZ Organic shampoos eare created with respect for the health of your hair, and contain only gentle, yet effective, ingredients.
Do not forget conditioner. Conditioner makes the hair smoother. A smooth strand of hair is shinier because it reflects light better.
2. GIVE YOUR HAIR LOTS OF MOISTURE
It might be self-evident, but a dry hair is in no way a shiny hair. So, moisture is needed. A 10-minute weekly hair treatment with ZENZ Organic Treatment no. 03 is basically perfect, but if your hair is very dry or you have naturally curly hair, then you usually need a little more care.
You can get that extra care with an Overnight Oil Treatment – a treatment that really works wonders.
- Distribute a generous amount of ZENZ Organic Oil Treatment no. 99, or another one of our signature oils, in dry hair before bedtime and remember to put a towel on your pillow overnight.
- In the morning, first add shampoo and then rinse thoroughly with water. Finish with conditioner.
Psst … You can also be pampered in one of our ZENZ salons with a moisturising luxury hair treatment and a footbath with nurturing organic oils.
3. USE A BOAR BRISTLE HAIRBRUSH
A boar bristle brush is pure wellness for your hair. The stiff, but soft, hairs absorb the scalps natural oils and distributes them evenly in the hair. It makes the hair both stronger and shinier. On top of that, the boar bristles stimulate the scalp and increases the blood flow, so your hair growth also benefits from the brushing.
4. LEAVE THE GOOD INGREDIENTS IN YOUR HAIR ALL DAY
Some hair types need extra moisture to maintain their shine. This is especially true of naturally curly hair, but also long hair and hair that is dyed with permanent hair color can benefit greatly from extra moisture during the day.
While it can be tempting, you should not leave your hair treatment in the hair all day – it is designed to provide intense care for a limited period of time. Instead, use a single drop op oil as first aid for dry tips, or try a leave-in-conditioner.
Due to the mild and light ingredients, ZENZ Organic conditioner can also be used as a leave-in-conditioner. After washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner, gently dab your hair with a towel. In towel-dried hair, put a little bit of conditioner and spread it with a wide comb or gently with your fingers. Then you can style your hair as usual.
5. PUT YOUR DRYER ON COOL AIR
Blow-drying and other heating tools are hard on the hair. But it is rarely something we want to do without. When you have the opportunity, let your hair air dry – it is clearly the healthiest for the hair (and the environment).
On the days when the hair dryer is needed, you should only let your hair air dry for 5-10 minutes after you have dabbed it with the towel. Hair is most fragile when wet, so be gentle:
Keep the hair dryer at a good distance from the hair, turn down the heat and blow dry the hair in the direction the hair grows. Finish with cold air, then your hairstyle will hold better and get more shine.
6. DO A DETOX TREATMENT EVERY NOW AND THEN
Detox basically means removing the unhealthy. How often one’s hair and scalp need a detox is very individual. Do you e.g. use hair products with silicone in, it is good with a detox a little more often, because silicone is unhealthy for hair and scalp, and cannot be washed out with shampoo.
ZENZ Organic Hair Rinse & Treatment no. 87 is a herbal cider that cleanses in depth and removes everything that accumulates and that your shampoo cannot handle. It also gives LOTS of shine - so it’s pure win win.
- Wash your hair with shampoo as usual.
- Use the lid from your Hair Rinse & Treatment no. 87 as a dosage target. You will need 3 filled lids with herbal cider for 1 glass of water.
- Pour the mixture into the hair and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Avoid getting it in your eyes.
- Rinse hair thoroughly.
- Finish with conditioner as after a regular hair wash.
7. QUICK FIX: TRY A GLOSS TREATMENT AT THE HAIRDRESSER
The fastest way to get gorgeous shiny hair is with a gloss treatment at your hairdresser. You do not need to change hair color. A gloss can easily be made in a color that matches your natural hair color. At ZENZ you can book time for a gloss treatment together with a haircut.
