The glass-hair look, the latest hairstyle trend loved by hairstylists and celebrities. Many will ask, what is glass hair? And no, this does not involve any real glass! Rather, the goal is to create high shine finishes that imitate the appearance of glass. In other words, the hair should be shiny with silky strands. While we will admit that many hairstyle trends are tough to recreate at home, the glass hair look is easier to achieve than most.
We’ve highlighted our top 3 tips to healthy glass hair.
Normally, people who have shiny hair have a very nourishing diet. It is one of the most important factors of healthy-looking hair. Our hair is made up of proteins, so it’s important to consume
high quality sources of protein as the building blocks of healthy hair. Adding a daily dose of collagen helps build hair protein itself. Shop the Motherkind Range.
Vitamin C is another key factor to shiny hair. Free radical damage can block growth and can cause your hair to age. In addition, your body needs Vitamin C to create a protein known as collagen — an important part of hair structure. It also helps your body absorb iron, a mineral necessary for hair growth.
Between round brushes, paddle brushes, and the like, it is hard to know which brush will work best for you. We prefer the Original Tangle Teezer Detangling Hairbrush because it is ideal for all regular hair types. Detangling wet or dry hair with its two-tiered regular-flex teeth glide through the hair with no pulling. Additionally, it reduces breakage and leaves
your hair looking smooth, glossy & frizz free.
There is a myth that shiny hair comes from intense heat and styling. But in order to maintain shiny hair, you do not want to over-process your hair or heat-style your hair too often. There is a technique where you give the hair a blast of cold air after you finish styling. Use the cold air button on your hairdryer to cool the hair down quickly and promote shine.
“Shine comes from the hair being smooth and free from any kind of breakage. If you’re blowing out your hair, take care to blow down any baby hairs, because they will interrupt the light reflection process.” – Andrew Fitzsimons
Don’t let anyone dull your shine, especially when it comes to your hair!
