Tips for creating shiny hair

Eat Right

Shiny Hair Joe Paris SalonWhen thinking about a diet for shiny hair, consider foods rich in biotin, a form of vitamin B (found in egg yolks, almonds, and Swiss chard); silica, a trace mineral associated with healthy hair (in leeks, garbanzo beans, strawberries, and cucumbers); and omega-3 fatty acids, which prevent dry scalp and dull hair (in walnuts, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and fatty fish such as salmon).

Take a Pill

B-complex vitamins like biotin can be an antidote to lackluster hair, as can iron supplements. Sometimes there’s an underlying cause such as anemia, so if your hair is lifeless and you’re losing strands, it’s best to see a doctor. Pregnancy vitamins, which contain biotin and iron, have gotten buzz as shiny-hair promoters, but pregnant women have another thing going —estrogen, which makes hair gleam.

Condition, Condition

More often than not, dull hair needs deep conditioning. Jo Paris Salon advised their clients to keep a good conditioner on hand. Even better—a leave-in conditioning mask. You want to moisturize. Light will be reflected and you’ll end up with a lustrous sheen. Don’t forget a hat to protect hair from ultraviolet light—the sun is a real shine-zapper.

Glaze It

A clear, semi-permanent glaze can seal the hair cuticle and add shine in about 20 minutes. Yyou can opt for a glaze with a bit of color to add depth as well as a boost of shine between trips to the colorist. Redheads, blonds, and those coloring gray strands see the most benefit. Glazes last four to six weeks.

Go Straight

Straight hair reflects light more easily, one reason why salon services such as Brazilian Keratin Treatment and Japanese straightening deliver hair with sheen.

Use Product

For a quick fix, shine sprays and serums work wonders. Jo Paris Salon recommends that you use them on the lower half of your strands to avoid a greasy scalp.
