Shiny Hair: natural treatments adapted to dry hair

You have dry, dull hair, curly, curly, frizzy or afro? Your hair is unruly and looking for a solution for hair shiny, soft and frizz free? Here are my tips and recipes simple oil baths vegetable oils and essential oils to successfully get shiny hair.

Why is it so hard to get shiny hair?

The hair is dry and dull because of oil that does not flow well along the hair. The light does not reflect on the missing hair oil. So the hair is not shiny.

On dry hair, the scales are “open”, which prevents the sebum flow and its role. Sebum serves to protect the hair from drying out through the lipid film (a little fat) it leaves on the hair and allowing just to have hair shiny and smooth.

Finally, because of these scales that are “open”, the hair becomes dull, brittle and unsightly. The solution is to find ingredients that will mimic the benefits of sebum on the hair.

Oil baths to get shiny and smooth hair


The bath oils are what are called pre-shampoo. That is to say, it should be applied to dry hair before shampooing and leave for 15 minutes to overnight. There is one or a mixture of oils.

No, I think care oils are extraordinarily effective to nourish hair, make your shiny, soft and smoothhair. They will not make you fat as a shampoo afterwards.

myself have tested some oil on my dry hair (long hair, dry the roots completely lengths and ends, broken). I noticed a change from the first test: the hair is soft, shinier sheathed less frizz.

My favorite oils are avocado and coconut. This treatment is top because it is very easy to performand more oils to keep a long time (at least 6 months).

How to choose a shampoo and mask?


If your hair is dry at the roots to the tips:


  • I suggest you choose a shampoo enriched with oils or butter that will nourish your hair and make it softer and shinier.


  • For the mask, I advise you to choose enriched + + + + + in oils, butters. Choose the most fat possible and of course it must sheath the hair to tighten the scales and make sure your hair will be shiny and must unravel.


If your hair is normal to the roots and dry on the lengths and ends (like mine Cheveux brillants : soins naturels adaptés aux cheveux secsbeaute  ):


  • I suggest you choose a mild shampoo from the simplest level of composition, that is to say just “detergent” to wash your hair and scalp of course. Do not choose a shampoo enriched with oils or butter as your normal hair at the root and they will grease too quickly if you choose a shampoo enriched with fats.


  • For the mask, I advise you to choose this time enriched + + + + + in oils, butter. Choose the fattest possible and of course it must sheath the hair to tighten the scales and make that your hair will be shiny and must unravel.

  • Essential oils can be irritating or allergenic. It is best to do an allergy test before use (apply on the bend essential oils diluted in vegetable oil and wait 24 h or 48 h)
  • Essential oils should not be applied to pregnant women (at least from the 4th pregnancy) and children with care. Talk to a therapist before use.
  • Essential oils are not suitable for people with epilepsy.
