4 Seriously Simple Ways To Get Soft, Shiny Hair At Home

Is there a woman out there who doesn’t wish she could enjoy a salon blowout every week? After all, who doesn’t want their locks looking and feeling silky and smooth on the regular? I know I do.

Sadly, we can’t all treat ourselves that often, so that leaves many of us trying–and often times failing–to achieve that shiny, bouncy look in between visits. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Believe it or not, soft, radiant hair is totally attainable without spending a fortune at a salon. Try these super simple tricks to unlock the shiny hair of your dreams.

1. Deep condition. Speaking from personal experience, I cannot say this enough: find a good deep conditioning treatment! Once you’ve found one you love, make sure to use it as often as possible. Deep conditioners help hydrate and moisturize hair, so a regular treatment will banish dry, brittle strands in no time, leaving you with super soft and healthy locks.

2. Try apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is a well-known beauty cure-all. Not only is ACV is good detangler and detox for the hair that helps eliminate product build up, but it can also soften and smooth strands when used as a rinse. If you’re weary about mixing up your own ACV hair concoction, try investing in a shampoo or conditioner that has apple cider vinegar as a base.

3. Get rid of that cotton towel. If you are still using a cotton towel to dry your hair, it’s time to stop. Instead, invest in a microfiber towel or turban like the Lisse Luxe Hair Turban ($30) from AQUIS. It’s made with AQUITEX technology, a specially engineered microfiber that is super absorbing, without the added friction of cotton. The result? Your hair gets a smoother dry, leaving your locks softer and shinier because this quality fabric causes less frizz and hair damage.

4. Experiment with essential oils. Try adding a few drops of essential oils to your conditioner or directly to your hair before styling. Coconut, argan and lavender oils are a few to think about investing in, as they are moisturizing and can help you obtain that glossy shine. You can also find a lot of essential oils already in hair products, so if you’re not ready to stock up on the essentials just yet, shop around to find a good shampoo or conditioning combo.
