Good Hair (Every!) Day: 5 Secrets to Gorgeous-Looking Locks
A head full of gorgeous, glossy hair is the ultimate beauty aspiration—and there are certain steps you can take in your hair care routine to help ensure your mane looks beautiful day in and day out. These include making sure you’re using the right products (shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask) in the shower and styling your hair with products, like hair serum, that can add shine. For a full hair care routine that’ll help you maintain the mane of your dreams, keep scrolling.
Besides picking a shampoo and conditioner formulated your hair type, adding a hair mask to your weekly beauty routine can be a great way to help keep your hair looking and feeling its best. Swap out the previously recommended conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm once or twice a week, and leave it on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing out. You can also use this hair mask as a pre-shampoo treatment for added detangling or conditioning.
Now you know what products to use in the shower—but how you shower plays a role in how your hair appears, too. Rinsing off in super-hot water is not ideal, as this can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller. So, the next time you’re ready to clean up, do so in lukewarm temps instead. Your hair will thank you!
If you’re dealing with frizzy hair or flayways—or you just want to add a little bit of shine to your hair—grab a hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish-in-Oil Serum. This lightweight hair serum helps to tame frizz and flyaways, detangle hair, and smooth each strand. It provides humidity protection and delivers silky finish, luminous shine, and touchable softness without leaving your hair feeling greasy. To use, apply 1-2 pumps evenly onto damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends. Don’t rinse. Blow-dry or let your hair dry naturally.
Editor’s tip: You can also mix a few drops of this hair serum into your hair mask for added nourishment. The more you know!
Is your hair looking a little ragged at the ends? It’s likely time for a trim! Call up your stylist to book an appointment at the salon. A quick trim (or a dramatic chop) can instantly help create the look of beautiful hair. Whether you want to make a small or big change, we’ve got plenty of ideas to inspire you. One of our favorite haircuts is long layers—layers can help add movement and depth. On the shorter end, bobs and lobs are totally on trend and flattering to just about every hair type. Regardless of which haircut you choose, ask your stylist to tailor your haircut to your hair type—what works on straight hair may not necessarily work on curly hair, and vice versa. Your stylist will be able to determine which haircut will suit your hair best.
