When it comes to the hair department, shiny locks are the equivalent of glowing skin. It's the optimal look for healthy tresses, and with the right push, your hair can achieve that lovely sheen in no time. Here's how:
Healthy hair starts with hygiene, and for maximum shine, never strip your tresses of moisture. Avoid shampoos with sulfates, specifically Sodium Laureth Sulfate, since it tends to strip the hair of its oils and dry it out. For conditioners, use one that leaves your hair soft but not sticky. Ones that are infused with hydrating oils and keratin will help your hair overtime, too! Lastly, make sure to always rinse your hair with cold water to lock in the hydration and minimize frizz.

Depending on your hair type, achieving shine can be done in different ways. For colored and damaged hair, it won't hurt to go for oil-based serums or creams to bring your locks back to life. For thinner or virgin hair, opt for leave-in conditioners that won't overwhelm it.

When in doubt, run to the pros for some assistance. Celebrity hairdresser Jing Monis recommends the Overdose treatment, which is exclusively available at Jing Monis Salon. "It is a dual treatment designed not only to cure your strands, but also to seal the ends which will prevent your hair from breaking, and to treat your scalp to bring back its natural oils resulting in silkier, smoother, and stronger hair," he explains. There's also the Hydrating Mask, which will improve shine and elasticity by replenishing the hair's moisture.
