In my DIY T-shirt curls post, I got a lot of questions about how I get my hair healthy. The secret to keeping your hair glossy and shiny is simple: treat your hair correctly! Even though I do use heat on my hair, I have been trying to use it less because of my new favorite curling method. Here are the products that I use to help prevent split ends and add a ton of shine!
I try to switch up my shampoo's pretty often to give my hair all of the benefits of each individual product, but I keep coming back to Joico K-Pak reconstructing shampoo. This adds so much shine, and it really prevents split ends. This would have to be my number one essential for getting that natural shine, I have also found that this makes your hair so much easier to style.
For my conditioner, I use the TIGI Rockaholic Living The Dream Daily Energy Conditioner. This is gentle enough to use it frequently, and it keeps my hair so soft. This was on sale one time when Ulta was having their 21 days of beauty, so I decided to pick one up. This has to be my all time favorite conditioner, it makes your hair super silky without being greasy, which is a major deciding factor in hair products for me. My definition of shiny hair is glossy, bouncy, full, and healthy. These products will not weigh your hair down, they will just add all of the qualities above!
My go-to product for natural looking waves is the Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Mousse. Suave has really established an amazing range of products, and I have been extremely impressed with their professional line. This is more of a cream then a mousse, and it makes your hair so soft. This doesn't make your hair crunchy at all, but the hold on it is so impressive considering the texture of it! The key to this product is to apply it right after you get out of the shower, and then dry it with your towel.
My favorite heat protectant would have to be the Got 2 B Guardian Angel. I use my Chi 44 iron guard on my hair when I straighten it, but for everyday use, Guardian Angel is my favorite. I mainly focus this on the ends of my hair and then work it up, this prevents split ends and really nourishes your hair.
These are my favorite products that I use to keep my hair looking shiny and healthy! The only products that I always use are the shampoo and conditioner, but keeping the others in your routine will provide you with healthy looking hair, even when you don't use them daily.
