How To Make Your Hair Shiny: 6 Tips

It isn’t easy to get shiny hair. Otherwise, everyone would have it! If you’re willing to put in the work and experiment with your personal hair care products and routines, you can give your hair a little more gloss. From essential oils to cold water rinses, our experts at The Earthling Co. offer a few ways for you to begin starring in your own shampoo commercial.

1. Moisturize

The holy grail of skin care is also the holy grail of hair care: moisturizing. Your hair might be crying out for hydration on the cellular level, especially if it’s routinely exposed to heat, hard water or anything else with drying properties. Damage of this sort can result in a frizzy, dull and lackluster appearance. The good news is that it’s possible to reverse it. Our shampoo bars, for example, are made with natural ingredients that can remove build-up and encourage healthy, shiny locks.

2. Look for Leftovers

If you frequently style your hair, you might be leaving behind grease, oil and product residue between washes. Your scalp may eventually get blocked from the buildup, obstructing your hair's natural oils. It thus inhibits your hair from shining brightly and reflecting the light. Avoid products with silicone, waxes and petroleum products like mineral oil.

3. Use Conditioner Regularly

A good conditioner can be the secret to unlocking sleek and glossy hair. You should avoid products containing harsh additives such as parabens and sulfates. Our conditioner bars are made from natural ingredients that include coconut oil and jojoba oil. These ingredients can have deeply hydrating effects without exposing your hair to inorganic chemicals that could cause further damage.

4. Improve Your Nutrition

You’ve probably heard that drinking more water can improve the appearance of your hair. Eating the right kind of food matters, too. Your diet can play a significant role in the health of your hair, and healthy hair is the foundation for shiny hair. Good nutrition can boost everything from overall hair growth to the amount of gloss and luster your hair can achieve. It can also make your hair stronger and less prone to split ends.

5. Wash Your Hair Less Often

Did you know that you can wash your hair too much? If your strands are dry, brittle or prone to breakage, you might be stripping them of their natural oils with your constant shampooing. Another bad sign is if your scalp has become dry and flaky from dehydration.

Consider cutting back on the number of times a week that you wash your hair. You can use products like our natural dry shampoo to keep your hair clean in between washes. It contains ingredients like bamboo stem powder and hydrolyzed rice protein that absorb excess oil leaving your hair soft and full. Plus, it has a light herbal/floral scent which gives your hair that “just washed” smell.

6. Avoid Blow Drying

Heat can be damaging to hair. It’s especially rough on curly hair, but it can take a toll on all hair types. Heat removes water and other necessary nutrients from hair strands, leading to frizz, dryness and dullness.

Try to incorporate more air drying into your routine. It’ll take longer, but it’ll keep your hair safe from the harmful effects of blow-drying heat. If you absolutely need to blow dry, make sure to apply hair oil afterward to reintroduce moisture to your locks. A great option is our hair and body oil which doubles as a heat protectant and moisturizer thanks to ingredients like jojoba, prickly pear, and desert date oil.
