There’s nothing like knowing you have the shiniest, softest hair in the room. Even if you think people aren’t likely to notice how healthy your hair looks – they will! If you have a hot date coming up or just want to be able to run your fingers through your locks without catching a snarl, there are plenty of ways to make your perfect hair dreams become reality.
It all starts before you even shower. For the ultimate soft, shiny hair, grab a bottle of olive oil, a shower cap and a towel. Heat a bowl of the oil in the microwave for about 20 or 30 seconds, then drape the towel over your shoulders to protect your clothes. Massage the olive oil throughout your hair, concentrating on dry ends. If you have a dry scalp, massage it onto that as well, otherwise stay about a half inch away from it to avoid greasiness. Put the cap over it when your hair is saturated, then relax for 30 minutes while it soaks in.
In the shower, rinse the oil out and shampoo with a mild product like Caswell-Massey – Almond & Aloe Botanical Shampoo. Then, use a bit of conditioner like Dermalogica – Silk Finish Conditioner. Tie your hair up into a bun while you wash your face and body so the conditioner can soak in. Rinse out with cold water and style as usual. You’ll be amazed at how great your hair looks and feels.
