We're telling you, getting soft, glossy hair is possible even without getting a salon treatment. Trust me, regardless of your hair texture, this handy dandy guide will help you score the most Instagrammable hair of your life. Keep scrolling to find out how!
1. Nourish with a hair mask or conditioner
First things first. If you want super shiny hair, you must let your strands soak in a deep-conditioning hair product after you shampoo. Curly-haired gals will love silicone-free formulas. On the other hand, if you've got straight locks, go for a product rich in keratin.

2. Say goodbye to buildup
A major culprit of dull strands is scalp and hair residue. You can wash with a salt shampoo or try a clarifying formula every two weeks or once a month, depending on how greasy your scalp gets. Alternatively, your can massage your hair and scalp with rinsing vinegar before the last rinse.

3. Try a conditioning hair mist
I swear by hair mists with nourishing and conditioning agents to keep the hair tangle-free. Spritz on dry hair and finger-comb for a smooth, shiny finish.

4. Use a shine-boosting product
Okay, I admit this one's pretty obvious. Grab a shine-boosting hair serum or hair oil and massage it on the hair, avoiding the roots. If you have more time in your hands, you can heat-style your strands first (straighten or curl 'em, depends on your mood) before applying the product.

5. Brush your hair
There's no shortcut for this step. Remove the tangles and brush your hair. If you've got curly hair, you can skip this step: Just rub hair oil and twist the ends to bring out the curls. Wavy gals can just chill and scrunch the waves to bring out their natural texture.
