Shiny, healthy, tangle-free hair can seem unachievable — especially if you’ve caused years of damage from constant coloring and heating tool application. But anyone can get flowy, glamorous hair with just a few simple changes. Implement these five easy changes to your routine to get the shiny, silky hair of your dreams.
Comb When Wet, Brush When Dry
Most people are way too rough when brushing. If you’re using a paddle brush on wet hair and hear that detangling noise, that’s not a good thing. It’s your hair ripping! Use a comb when your hair is wet or a brush specifically designed for wet hair to work through knots and tangles, and start at the ends where the tangles are so you’re not ripping from the root and pulling toward the end of your hair.
Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase
Your cotton pillowcase could very well be the cause of your frizzy, tangled hair. Cotton is excellent at absorbing moisture. That’s good for cleaning counters, but terrible for using on your hair. Cotton absorbs all the moisture and oil from your strands, while silk or satin maintains the oils necessary for nourished hair.
Use a Pillowcase to Dry, Not a Towel
We have all been incorrectly drying our hair this entire time! Roughly rubbing our hair back and forth with a towel creates friction and fluffs up the cuticle — causing knots, breakage, and untamable frizz. The less friction, the better. Swap your friction-causing cotton towel for a smoother cotton T-shirt, and instead of rubbing your head, wrap the ends in the shirt and squeeze all the water out, working it down to the ends.
Finish Blow Drying With Cold Air
Finishing your blow drying with cold air after completely drying the hair maintains hair volume, direction of your style, and helps close the cuticle. Closing the cuticle locks in the moisture of your strands. It’s essential to seal in the natural oil of your hair or the oil you’ve applied to protect it from losing any unnecessary moisture throughout the day.
Apply a Moisturizing Mask
A good hair mask is a girl’s best friend. You don’t have to spend hours on your hair each day to achieve a silky, flowy, shiny look. All you need to do is apply a nourishing hair mask once a week that contains all of the necessary nutrients. The 10-minute Glimmr Hair Mask with clinically proven superfood ingredients like guava leaf extract, Japanese camellia oil, and ginger root to nourish hair follicles and repair hair strands. After shampooing, massage in the Glimmr Hair Mask for 10 minutes then rinse to restore natural sheen, repair dry, treated hair, and block damaging pollutants.SHOP HAIR MASK
