Time to shine
Blow-drying, colour treatments and diet got your hair looking dull? Well, let there be light! Shiny locks are attainable no matter your texture
Colouring and blow-drying puts your hair through the wringer, but here’s help
FFor the past few years, effortless hair has ruled, from runways to the real world. Shiny, polished strands just seemed too perfect and fussy... But the self-care craze is changing all that. “Healthy hair is a reflection of what you put in your body and on your hair,” says Dr Francesca Fusco, a dermatologist at Wexler Dermatology. Healthy hair is literally all about reflection:
“The cuticle looks like shingles overlapping on a microscopic level,” explains Fusco. On uber-healthy hair, those shingles lie smooth and flat, ie, the prime position for reflecting light and creating shine. But with enough wear and tear, “the cuticle of hair may appear broken or shredded,” she adds. Hence, dullness. But there is a bright side: it’s possible to rehab your hair back to its shiniest, healthiest self. Read on and discover how to counteract those shine sappers and boost your hair’s gloss factor, fast!
