Everyone wants healthy, shiny hair. The more it shines, the silkier it seems. The truth is, you want hair that can hold up and takes a style great. The problem is that styling tends to be what rips the sheen right off your hair and leaves you with limp, damaged hair instead. The best ways to get around this are hair care.

It only takes five to ten minutes and can make all the difference when it comes to the health of your hair. It adds the moisture back and makes your hair shiny all over again.
3. Get the Bristles

Boar bristles are the best and add a true shine to your hair. The brush might be a bit more expensive but it will last for a very long time and the effects are undeniable.
