3 STEPS TO SHINY HAIR
Unless you can run your hands through your hair each morning and marvel at its Blake Lively-esque shine and Selena Gomez-level bounce, it’s time to up your conditioning game. Thankfully, these 2016 Best of Beauty winners have got you covered.
When Your Hair Is Dry…
There’s a reason why most deep conditioners instruct you to slather them on preshower, and it’s not to turn your floors into a Slip’N Slide. “Once your hair is wet, oils and moisturizers can’t penetrate the hair shaft as well,” says Ava Shamban, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at UCLA. Brush out any knots on dry hair with a Tangle Teezer The Original Styler, then massage a palmful of a silicone-based mask from roots to tips, raking through the hair with your fingers until every strand is coated. Leave it on for the exact time on the directions, then step into the shower and rinse hair thoroughly. (Note: If your hair is coarse or kinky, try a heavier, oil-based treatment.)
