Three tips from the amazing hair trichologist Phillip Kingsley on how to get soft shiny hair
1.Pick protein Hair is made of keratin, a form of protein, so don't skimp on protein-packed lean meats, fish, eggs, beans, and low-fat dairy products, Getting plenty of healthy omega-3 fats, which are found in salmon, soybeans, flaxseed oil, and walnuts. Eating these can increase hair's sheen over time
2.If you're a styling-product junkie who wants shiny hair, you'll need to banish the buildup, which is a guaranteed shine squelcher. Once a month, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda to 2 tablespoons of your shampoo. "The sodium bicarbonate will remove any stubborn, sticky residue
3.Skip the cold-water rinse
There's no need to undergo the big chill. "Cold water may help close your pores, but it doesn't affect the hair cuticle in the same way," says Kingsley. Gently squeeze and blot—don't rub—hair when you towel dry. "Wet hair is fragile, and any friction will rough up the cuticle," says Kingsley.
