Shine On: Tips For Your Glossiest Hair Ever

Want the secret to shiny, healthy-looking hair? Look no further – our experts give you the tried-and-tested tips for the glossiest locks around. From the food you should be eating to the quick-fix shine sprays you need in your handbag, follow these steps and you’ll be shining all day.

Tackle the Build Up

Our hair is exposed to a lot over the course of the day, from smoke and pollution to the smell of food and even our own hair products. The build-up from all of these things can leave our hair dull and flat, even after your normal hair wash. To strip away all of the product build-up and impurities, use a clarifying shampoo once every 7-14 days. We love the three products below for instantly refreshing our hair and leaving it with a healthy shine:

Straighten Out

Curly hair can look voluminous and bouncy, but did you know that hair looks glossier when it’s straight? This is because the heat from the plates seals the hair cuticle, helping it to lie flat. This increases the surface area of the hair, meaning that it can reflect a lot more light.

Work From the Inside Out

What you put into your body is just as important as what you put onto your hair. Try to incorporate foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to help plump skin and add shine to your hair.  Nuts, fish and avocado are all great sources of fatty acids, so get munching!


Fight the Frizz

Because it doesn’t reflect the light, frizz is the main thing standing between a lot of people and the glossy hair they would love. Swapping your normal shampoo and conditioner for moisturising alternatives is one of the easiest ways to combat frizz and add shine. We’ve included some of our favourites below.

Add Some Colour

Hair that is one colour all-over can sometimes appear one-dimensional, whereas multi-tonal hair catches the light more and in turn looks shinier. If you think your hair could use a boost, speak to your local Regis stylist about adding some colour into your hair. Highlights or balayage are perfect for people wanting something relatively low-maintenance.

Fake It!

If you’re still struggling to add shine to your hair, there are plenty of finishing products that can deliver an instant dose of gloss. Browse our range of shine enhancing products for the quick-fixes that can help all hair types.
