Long, short, curly or straight when your hair has that silky sheen, it’s got an added quotient of glam. But what really brings out that glossy finish in your hair? No, it isn’t shine inducing serums, gels or blow drying. Why your hair shines has a lot to do with its structure.

First, let’s introduce you to the most important part of your hair: your cuticle.

The cuticle is the outermost layer of your hair shaft that protects its inner layers.  Silky, strong hair needs to have smooth, closed cuticles. When that happens, it acts as a mirror, reflecting light from the surface of your hair. When your hair cuticle layer is raised or chipped, (which happens due to damage) it becomes difficult to maintain smoothness or shine.

What kind of hair shines and what doesn’t?

How do you close the cuticle and make it smooth?

1. Reduce cuticle damage by giving your hair a regular deep conditioning treatment with coconut oil. It will penetrate deep into your hair shaft and repair it.

2. Comb your hair in a single direction, to keep those cuticles flattened and add luster to your hair.

3. Get a natural bristle hair brush. It will help disperse sebum evenly over the scalp, prevent static and frizz, reduce hair breakage, and give your hair a sleeker look.

4. Rinse your hair thoroughly till it’s squeaky clean. You don’t want any residue from your shampoo & conditioner, or lime from hard water to take the luster out of your hair.

5. Interested in learning about some purifying hair rinses that will give you the shine you’re craving? Oh and by the way, they are totally natural.
