How to Add Glossy Condition to Any Type of Hair

This is a long-term program to put condition into dry, damaged hair, or to prepare hair for dyeing, highlights, a special occasion (prom, holiday, birthday etc.) growth or simply to look great. It's around a three month plan - though, if you're looking for a quick fix, can be hastened to three weeks (without, of course, the same results, but will still leave hair soft and shiny).

    Prepare yourself and try to form a routine of showering in the afternoon (or the morning if you have a lot of time) and allowing hair to dry naturally.
  2. Image titled Style Wet Hair Step 3
    Comb hair before washing, to avoid nasty tangles and breakages.
  3. Image titled Shrink Hemorrhoids Step 7
    Start the process with hot water - not scalding, however - and allow simply to drench hair and scalp. This is important - it opens the shaft of hair (like opening pores on the face)and allows for deep down cleaning and conditioning.
  4. Image titled Control Your Hair Step 1
    Shampoo hair thoroughly with a sulfate and sodium free shampoo - massaging the scalp and gently pulling wefts of hair taut with shampoo on your fingers are both ways of absolute deep-down cleansing.

    Wash hair with warm water until water runs clear. Repeat if necessary.

    Apply a LITTLE less conditioner than shampoo - Organix is a good brand - Remember, sulfate and sodium free - just to the TIPS (if your hair is oily), or to the mid-lengths downwards (if you have normal/dry hair). Avoid the roots, but it is okay to apply leftover conditioner to them. Leave conditioner in while you wash your body, face, shave, etc, and rinse it out right before you get out of the shower so your hair can soak up the nutrients.
  7. Image titled Get Healthy Hair Step 6
    Rinse with cold water - this isn't too bad, once you're used to it! Stand under cold water for as long as you can - this closes the shaft of the hair, adding deep-down natural shine. This is also beneficial for the face.
  8. Image titled Treat Dry Hair Step 7
    Pat hair dry with a warm towel. After washing, let hair hang loose - Don't put it up, or you will get an unsightly dent in your hair where the elastic or clip was.
  9. Image titled Treat Dry Hair Step 6
    Apply anti-frizz serum to hair to keep it from become frizzy, even on the most humid of days. Again, Organix has a very good anti-frizz serum.
  10. Image titled Grow out Short Hair Step 6
    Allow your hair to dry naturally, or use a room fan to dry. If you decide to use a fan, follow these steps.
  11. Image titled Scrunch Thin Hair in 30 Minutes Step 4
    Face the fan so it is approximately 6 inches (15.2 cm) away from your face, use a wide-toothed comb or paddle brush to brush out your hair. Both are fine to use on wet hair since they allow room for hair to slip from the teeth easily. Using a fan won't make your hair frizzy, because it covers your hair like a funnel which prevents frizz, and the cool air closes the shaft of the hair (don't worry, it won't give you a cold).
  12. Image titled Keep Hair Healthy and Long Step 3
    Brush your hair before sleeping, but don't pull - and again when waking up.

    Many women and girls have trouble styling hair. Look up tutorials on YouTube to get some ideas, and if you choose to use heat, make sure to use a good heat protecting serum!
  14. Image titled Treat Dry Hair Step 1
    Stay away from chlorine pools, harmful UV/UVB rays and chemical styling (perms and relaxers) if you can. These can make your hair frizzy and discoloured, or simply damage it.
  15. 15
    Lots of people wash hair every single day - if you can, try washing every other day, or every 3 days. It may sound disgusting, but it rejuvenates the scalp and is of overall benefit for hair.
  16. Image titled Grow out Short Hair Step 1
    Get your hair trimmed regularly to avoid split ends.


  • If you just staying home on the weekends don't straighten or curl your hair let your hair relax for the day.
  • Avoid using products that leave a 'residue' in your hair (hair spray, gel). This can build up and leave hair unable to 'breathe'.
  • Try not to play with hair excessively - this promotes greasiness. Never, ever cut or pull out hair.
  • If you cannot leave your hair in its natural state, then simply cut down on straightening/curling/blow drying to under four times a week.
  • Use natural-bristle brushes
  • Take a hair, skin, and nails formula, or a simple A-Z vitamins to promote a natural healthy shine. Vitamin D and certain types of protein are especially beneficial.
  • Using products for your hair type is always advisable. If you're confused on your hair type, use a simple All Hair Types, or a deep-cleansing shampoo. Conditioner is not always advisable - for example, if your hair is very oily.
  • Accessorize!
  • Ask your hairdresser if you are unsure about anything in this article.
  • You get back what you put in! Hair shows what you put into your body like a bruise. Substances such as alcohol, cigarettes and drugs have a bad effect on the hair. Conversely, good food with plenty of vitamins will keep your hair nourished. Healthy hair is a part of a healthy body.
