How do you get shiny hair? It is a question that many people ask hairdressers on a daily basis. The most important rule to make your hair shiny is to use the right hair care for your hair. In addition, there are products you can use for extra shiny hair. Discover in this article all the tips from the Keune hair experts for silky and shiny hair.

1. Shiny hair with the right shampoo and conditioner

Dull hair is one of the most common hair problems. To make dull hair shiny, it is important to use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Shampoo actually adds shine by removing dirt and sebum from your hair. Conditioner then nourishes and moisturizes your hair. So don't skip your conditioner.

2. Use a nourishing hair mask regularly

Relative to a conditioner, a hair mask is a deeply nourishing hair treatment that you can do yourself once or twice a week. It gives just that extra boost to make your hair shine.

3. Create the best wash routine for your hair

Your scalp naturally produces sebum that protects your hair and scalp. When you wash your hair too often, this natural protection and thus the shine disappears. To make your hair shine as much as possible, it is recommended to wash your hair on average twice a week. Keune gives you tips for the best washing routine for your hair.

4. Don't rub, but knead

Make sure that when you dry your hair with a towel, you don't do a rubbing motion. Although it's a nice feeling, this breaks the hair down and gives you frizzy hair which soon looks dull. Instead, it is better to knead your hair dry with a (microfiber) towel or cotton shirt. This way also allows curls to come out better.

5. Use a good brush

To maintain the texture and shine of your hair, it is important to use the right brush. When hair is wet, it is more fragile. Therefore, when brushing wet hair, it is important to use a coarse detangle brush. In addition, it is important to keep your brush clean and remove all the hair from the brush once a week. After that, let the brush dry well.

6. Protect your hair from the heat of styling tools

Styling tools such as a blow dryer, curling iron, or straightener can make your hair look beautiful. Just keep in mind to protect your hair from the heat of these tools. Use a spray or serum that is specially made as a heat protector. This creates a protective layer around your hair so that the cuticles are damaged as little as possible and you keep your hair shiny.

7. Discover the glossy secret of Keune: Lumi Coat

Lumi Coat is the new discovery from Keune that provides beautiful shiny hair. The spray has a heat-activated formula. This means that you need to spray the spray on clean damp hair and then you need to activate the formula with the heat of your blow dryer. The result is shiny hair for up to three washes!

8. Protect your hair from the sun in the summer

If you want to maintain your radiant locks in the summer, we recommend that you protect your hair from the sun. Use hair sunscreen the moment you go out in the sun for a longer time. The Keune Care Sun Shield Oil is a light but powerful oil that locks the moisture in your hair to prevent your hair from drying out from the sun. Always put this one in your beach bag.

9. Use products with oils in them

Generally speaking, products with oils in them are best for stimulating shiny hair. For example, our Satin Oil products with maracuja, baobab, and monoi oils create wonderfully soft hair with an irresistible shine. For an extra-strong effect, add a few drops of the Satin Oil Treatment to the other Satin Oil products. This strengthens the hydration of the hair.

10. In-salon Keratine treatment

Should you have already tried everything and still find your hair not shiny enough? Don't panic! There are also treatments in salons that can make your hair shine again. For example, you have the Keune Miracle Elixir treatment that makes badly damaged hair smooth and soft again with keratin, and also deeply nourishes the hair.
