2 secrets to shiny hair
I’ve been obsessed with
straight, shiny hair for a month or so now. So much so that I went and had 3 ½ inches lopped off of my hair to rid it of any possible split ends so it would look healthy and have loads of shine (plus it looks so much better when smoothed into a straight style). My secret weapons for getting that glass-like, glossy finish? These two things: a great brush (the better quality and how it’s used really can
make your strands smooth and silky) and a glistening shine spray (that won’t weight down my fine hair). I swear by these right now, especially since I try not to use a
flat iron to achieve straight hair these days (I had an addiction to it a couple of years ago and have been trying to stay clean and sober when it comes to the flat iron).
I first visited DryBar in Los Angeles in January. Two words. Loved it. The products and tools they used took my blow dry up a notch, so naturally I had to have this brush that is ceramic and really helps smooth the hair shaft as your dry. It also cuts down on the drying time since it heats up – and the shorter the drying time, the less damage. That equals shiner hair.

Shine spray usually leave my hair limp and piecey. And although I love the shine, my fine hair does not need to be weighed down. Enter this spray that gives a mirror-like shine, but the fine mist is super light weight.
