Don't get old! Don't bleach your hair. Don't perm your hair. Don't color your hair. That about covers it.

haha well we all get old! :) I have a friend who has "virgin" hair, meaning no perm, no color, or whatsoever! But she got it colored recently... so that's why it's not that shiny anymore.

LOL dont get old. I WISH! :) I have not dyed or coloured my hair since before i was pregnant, so all the chemicals have all been cut out by now, and its really not all that shiney. I think that some of it has to do with the type of shampoo and conditioner you use, as well as i bet DIET has something to do with it too. And other things that you put into your body.

You know your diet, aids in keeping your hair shiny, also! Italians, and latins have shiny hair, and its because of the diet! My sisters use, hair conditioners here, like coconut oil, aloe vera, and others that are for dry hair!

One trick I learned many years ago is to do your final rinse after conditioning with cold water. It closes the hair cuticles and doesn't allow any air to get in. It makes your hair lie flatter which ultimately gives it more of a shine. Pantene has a line called Ice Shine that I think works really well. I've heard mixed reviews about it but it makes my hair look extra shiny! Also, keep damage to a minimum. If you must dye your hair, make sure you deep condition atleast once a week. And don't just leave it on your hair for a couple minutes. Try to keep it on an hour or so if you have the time. You'll notice an improvement in your hair health in no time at all! If you're using heat products, there are serums you can buy to protect against the heat. I don't use them personally so I can't offer any help on there but I know they're out there on the market. Good luck with getting your hair to shine!

Keep it stay healthy, try to cut it half an inch regulalry, also avoid putting or applying chemicals. Aside from that have it hot oiled. :)
