I used to have a lot of hair, but it was very thin and limp. Then I discovered the secrets that all women with thick, shiny hair know: beer, champagne and cold rinses! Now that I’m a pro, my locks are fuller than ever before—and they’re healthier too. Read on for some tips on how to make your strands look like a shampoo commercial come true…
ways to shine hair
There are a number of ways to use beer to help get your hair looking amazing. Beer shampoo, rinse and conditioner will help to restore moisture, strengthen the strands and add shine. A beer mask can be used as part of a weekly deep conditioning ritual to give your hair more bounce, while adding some volume at the roots. Beer sprays and serums are great for adding body when you’re styling it into place!
Finally, there’s nothing quite like putting down a cold one after a long day at work or school—but if you want shiny, voluminous locks then try using an oil treatment for real results. You’ll be amazed by how much healthier your hair looks after just one application!
After washing, detangle your hair gently with a wide-toothed comb before drying.
If you have long hair, use a detangling spray or conditioner on the ends of your hair before washing it or brushing it out. The products will help to prevent breakage and protect the damaged areas of your hair while you’re styling.
Don’t brush your wet or damp locks—it will only cause more damage! Instead, gently comb through with a wide-toothed comb after taking a shower or bath.
Brush only when necessary (ideally once per day). If you must brush after each wash, be sure to use natural boar bristles for added protection against breakage and split ends because they are less likely than nylon bristles to pull out strands as easily as nylon ones can do if used too often in this way–and especially not too hard like some people seem to think is necessary sometimes when looking at pictures online where models look perfect all day every day even though they must surely be pulling their own out every time they go outside into harsh weather conditions like rain etcetera…
avoid these things
If you’re a product junkie, it’s important to get rid of the buildup once in awhile. Clarifying shampoos are great for this because they’re formulated to remove excess oils and built-up product. They work by stripping your hair of everything —including any styling products or treatments that may be on there.
use a clarifying shampoo:
Wash your hair as normal with one cup of apple cider vinegar mixed into warm water (you can also use white vinegar). This will help remove any dirt or oil from your scalp and roots
Use one teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of water (or one tablespoon) as a final rinse after washing out the apple cider vinegar mixture
Pat dry instead of rubbing because that could cause damage
One of the best ways to get shiny and voluminous hair is to wash it less often. You might think this means more oil buildup, but that’s not actually true. The reason hot water dries out your hair is because it disrupts the oil-moisture balance in your scalp. Cold water, on the other hand, helps seal and protect the cuticle (the outermost surface layer) of each strand so that it will be shinier and smoother looking when you style it later on in styling products like gels or mousses.
In addition to being good for your hair’s health, cold water also has environmental benefits: According to Energy Star Appliances, washing clothes at an average temperature of 40°F uses 20% less energy than washing them at a hotter temperature — saving you money both on utilities bills as well as conserving energy sources such as coal or natural gas for powering those power plants!
Drying your hair with a diffuser is the best way to add volume without frizz. It won’t cause your strands to poof out, but rather lift them up and give you that effortless look you’re going for. Plus, it’s easy! All you have to do is throw some heat protectant on your strands before running them through the diffuser (and if you’ve got one of those fancy ones that oscillate back and forth, even better). You can buy a diffuser online or at any beauty supply store for around $30—a small price to pay for big volume!
Even if drying without an attachment doesn’t sound like your thing, don’t worry—we’ve got some other secrets up our sleeves…
Don’t use heat on your hair everyday. Try not to use any thermal appliances on your hair more than once per week, and even that can be too much for some people. If you’re like me and don’t want to wash your hair every day, then you’ll want to stick with a flat iron or blow dryer no more than twice a week.
Don’t use heat tools on the same section of hair more than once. Doing so won’t cause damage—but it will cause unnecessary stress and breakage in an area that’s already damaged (which is why people with fine or fragile strands should also take extra care).
Don’t use heat tools if you have split ends. Even though it might seem counterintuitive to brush out those split ends with heat when they are what’s causing them, it actually makes sense if you think about it: Why would we create more splits? This is especially true when using curling irons because the longer we hold them against our locks without releasing any tension from our grip, the worse off our strands become due to their inability to move freely within their follicles as well as endure strain from pulling motions that occur during styling processes such as these ones do–and guess what? That’s exactly what happens when one applies too much constant pressure!
Beer is good for more than just drinking!
Baking soda is a great way to soften your hair and remove any buildup, but beer can do the same thing. Simply massage a small amount into your scalp, leave it for 5 minutes, then rinse out with water. If you want to add some extra shine and volume to your hair after this process, try spraying on some champagne before styling as normal. You’ll notice a difference right away!
These tips may seem a little extreme, but they’re worth giving a try if you’re looking to get your hair back on track. If you’ve tried everything else and nothing seems to work, then maybe these secrets will be the ticket!
