Secrets to Smoother, Softer, Shinier Hair

There's nothing better than a great hair day...well besides chocolate ;)

Good hair can be achieved by taking the right steps to ensure health, protection and growth. Things like a proper diet, exercise and regular trims can certainly promote beautiful hair. At home remedies and diy products can also put you hair in great condition. Below are some of my recommendations for smoother, softer and shinier hair.

Soft and shiny hair for any occasion is great!
Olive Oil: Great for softness and shine, just massage this into your hair and let it sit for an hour. Then wash it out and style hair as normal. 

Biotin Pills: Promotes hair growth. Take one daily and your hair will feel stronger! It's also great for skin and nails.

Shine Treatments: Different hair brands sell these treatments, such as Clairol and Garnier. The treatment goes onto your hair for 20-30 minutes and then you rinse it out. It's supposed to make your hair shinier and brighter for up to 6 weeks!

Coconut Milk Deep Conditioner: I buy these packets at Target for $1 and it's a great conditioner for my dry hair. After shampooing you apply this onto your hair and let it sit for 10-20 minutes before rinsing it out. Coconut Milk is also a great source of protein for your hair so it will leave it softer and stronger.

Heat Protectants: A great way to reduce the amount of damage done to your hair by styling tools, these products create a conditioning barrier between the heat and your hair! I love Chi Iron Guard and TRESemme Heat Protectant. 

Cold Water: Instead of rinsing in warm water, try rinsing with cold water! It will seal your hair's cuticle and make your hair more shiny. Also, try only to shampoo every other day!
