Full, voluminous and glossy hair is part of most of our beauty ideal. Yet, it requires the right steps or even long-term routine to get there. The best strategy for hair health is a multipronged approach, including massage, diet and of course the right products. Overstyling, stress, hormones or inappropriate nutrition can all have a negative influence on our hair. Don’t worry though, whether your natural texture is, straight, curly or wavy, the following steps help nurturing your hair and make you achieve your shiniest, sexiest and most stunning look yet.

1) Massage

You thought washing your hair is straight forward and it’s impossible that the way you shampoo your hair already makes a difference – well, you were wrong. Remember how the hair stylists at your favorite saloon wash your hair?! Right, it’s all about massaging and really scrubbing the scalp. This does not only feel incredible, but also when applying Moroccanoil Dry Scalp Treatment it already sets the foundations to healthy hair.

2) Eat well

Beauty comes from within – we are all aware of this fact. However, we usually rather think of the impact of nutrition on our skin or figure than on our hair. Antioxidants are essential for hair health and in case you don’t get enough collagen or vitamin E through your diet, we highly recommend trying out supplements. We have experienced impressive changes through taking HUM Nutrition or Ouai supplements regularly.

3) Condition twice

It’s no secret that using a conditioner is crucial. However, it might be new to you that professionals suggest to not only apply moisturizing products on lengths and ends in the shower, but also to use a leave-in conditioner when getting out of the shower. When it comes to shiny hair, the saying “Two are better than one”, is definitely valid!

4) Ad a little extra

If you are not doing so yet, what were you thinking?! Treat your hair with a mask, like the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Mask or some oil like Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil every once in a while. Trust us, these products are worth an investment and will for sure make a change!

5) Blow-dry the smart way

Never – and we can’t stress this enough – NEVER apply heat to your hair without using protection. Whether you are only blow-drying or using a straightener or curling iron, make sure to avoid frizz or breakage by using products like the Drybar Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist or the ghd Heat Protect Spray. Furthermore, be smart about which hair dryer to choose. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer uses the ion technology, which is extra gently on your hair. Put it on your wish list!

6) Brush to shine

Last but not least, rethink your choice of brush. Make sure to go with one that is extra gently on your hair and boosts shine rather than adding to breakage. Our number one favorite: Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Classic Paddle Brush.
