The most important thing you can do to help hair shine is prevent damage. This helps keep hair’s natural surface smooth and healthy looking. Get regular haircuts to remove the ends, as they tend to be the most damaged. Lastly, consider a dark hair colour. Dark hair often appears the shiniest, as the distinction between dark hair colour bands and light colour bands is much clearer to the eye on dark hair colour than light hair colour, giving the appearance of greater hair shine.
