SHINY HAIR - TIPS AND TRICKS

When it comes to beauty and styling, shiny hair is an absolute must for almost every woman. It's just a shame that complex styling, frequent washing and blow-drying, styling products such as wax or hairspray cause the hair to lose moisture. The cuticle layer of the hair becomes rough and porous and the hair loses its shine. We give you valuable tips on how you can quickly make your hair shine again using simple means.

WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MY HAIR SHINY?

The most important thing for beautiful hair is a smooth hair surface. This reflects the light falling on it and makes the hair look shiny and healthy. To achieve a radiant shine effect, it is important to stress the hair as little as possible. Don't blow-dry your hair too hot and let it air dry more often. When using curling irons, straighteners and curlers, make sure that you use particularly hair-friendly products. When it comes to hair dyes or bleaching, you should use hair-friendly quality products or have it done by a professional.

A few days break from styling is really good for your hair and scalp. Brush your hair frequently. In this way, the sebum is distributed throughout the hair and the scalp is well supplied with blood through the brush massage. Tried-and-tested home remedies or special care products can also be helpful in repairing your hair and restoring its natural shine.

WHAT HOME REMEDIES ARE SUITABLE FOR GETTING YOUR HAIR SHINY?

Conditioners or treatment packs with various home remedies can help you naturally care for your hair and make it irresistibly shiny. We will introduce you to some of the most popular methods below.

GREEN TEA RINSE:

Make an extra strong green tea by pouring a quart of hot water over two tea bags or two tablespoons of tea leaves. After 15 minutes of steeping time, the conditioner is ready. The cooled broth is massaged into damp hair. After a few minutes of exposure, the hair is rinsed out. The potassium and zinc contained in the tea make the hair healthy and noticeably stronger.

RINSING WITH MINERAL WATER AND APPLE VINEGAR:

The lime from the tap water can form a film around the hair and make it appear dull. If you rinse your hair after washing with low-calcium mineral water or water with a dash of apple cider vinegar (100 ml of vinegar to 1/2 liter of water), the lime will dissolve and your hair can shine in its full shine.

EGG YOLK HAIR WRAP

Even if it sounds a little getting used to: a hair treatment made from egg yolk is a real booster for your hair. The egg yolk contains many vitamins and proteins and provides your hair and scalp with an extra portion of nutrients. One or two egg yolks are whisked with a fork and applied to washed hair. Now you have to let the whole thing soak in for about half an hour and then rinse thoroughly. The nutrients contained in the egg yolk penetrate the hair and provide supple shine and strength.

OLIVE OIL OR COCONUT OIL:

If your hair is dry and has significantly lost its shine, especially in the lengths, a treatment with olive or coconut oil is ideal. The oil is simply massaged into dry hair. You then have to leave it wrapped in a towel for several hours, possibly overnight. The oil is then washed out with a mild shampoo. Don't use too much olive or coconut oil as washing it out can be a hassle.

You can be on the safe side if you use a specially formulated hair care oil. The MeMademoiselle Harmony Therapy Oil ampoules are ideal for giving your hair an extra care session. They combine the nourishing effects of five natural oils. Jojoba oil and almond oil moisturize the hair from the roots, making it particularly strong and shiny. Olive oil protects against split ends and covers the hair like a protective coat. Evening primrose oil is a balm for a sensitive scalp and orange oil promotes blood circulation in the scalp and thus stimulates hair growth. The contents of one ampoule are massaged into dry hair and left to act for at least 15 minutes. After washing it carefully, the hair can be styled as usual.

WHICH BRUSH MAKES HAIR ESPECIALLY SHINE?

An absolute insider tip among hairstylists and hairdressers are hairbrushes with boar bristles. These are usually combination brushes in which harder metal, wood or plastic bristles alternate with softer boar bristles.

The hard bristles detangle and smooth the hair. The boar bristles free the hair of the smallest knots and dirt particles, so that your mane looks particularly smooth and radiant after combing. In addition, the boar bristles can absorb the hair sebum at the hairline and distribute it over the entire length of the hair when brushing. This way your hair is cared for naturally. It looks healthy and its natural shine is particularly effective.

ARE SPECIAL SHAMPOOS FOR SHINY HAIR USEFUL?

Whether a special shine shampoo is necessary or not depends a little on your hair type and your care habits. If you are blessed with normal hair that does not require intensive care, a shine shampoo is a great product to give your hair the finishing touch. Even with colored hair, a shine shampoo helps to bring out the color particularly well.

Brittle, damaged hair needs a lot of care. However, too much care products weighs down the hair and makes it dull and heavy. It doesn't look healthy and shiny, but almost a little greasy. A little tact is required here. You should try different products and product combinations until you achieve optimal results.

Shampoos that can do both are ideal. The MeMademoiselle Renaissance Shampoo for stressed hair e.g. B. is a care shampoo that has a nourishing and smoothing effect at the same time. It contains valuable keratin, which repairs the hair structure and gives the hair back its elasticity and natural shine.

WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE LIGHT, BLONDE HAIR SHINE?

Blonde hair is often a little special when it comes to hair care. Natural blonde hair tends to be fine and thin, so it takes a little more effort to get it shiny.

PROBLEM CASE BLONDE HAIR

Especially if you bleach your hair yourself, it can happen quickly: instead of the desired attractive blonde tone, a look in the mirror reveals an unsightly yellow tint. The reason for this dilemma is that not enough color pigments have been removed from the hair during bleaching. This may be due to unsuitable bleaching or errors in application. Home remedies such as lemon or chamomile flowers can help.

LEMON JUICE RINSE:

Use a mixture of five tablespoons of lemon juice with half a liter of cold water as a hair conditioner. Washing out is not necessary. The acid in lemon juice provides a lightening effect, but also puts additional strain on the hair. If your hair is sensitive and damaged by bleaching, you should avoid using the lemon juice rinse.

CHAMOMILE FLOWER TREATMENT:

An infusion of chamomile flowers also has a brightening effect. Make a decoction from hot water and dried chamomile flowers and then let it cool to hand temperature. Then massage the broth into your hair and scalp and wrap a towel around it. After about five minutes, rinse out the chamomile treatment again. Chamomile is particularly gentle on skin and hair, so you can repeat this procedure several times without any problems.

A good alternative to home remedies are special shampoos that can help against the yellow tint in bleached hair. They are also called anti-yellowing shampoo or silver shampoo. The shampoos contain special color pigments that settle in the hair and thereby neutralize the yellow color.

The MeMademoiselle Anti Yellow Shampoo was specially developed for bleached hair. It is easy to use and can effectively counteract unsightly yellowing of the hair. The ingredient glycerin protects the hair and ensures shine and suppleness right down to the tips. Glycerin also moisturizes the scalp, which prevents itching and dandruff.
