Everybody wants to have beautiful, silky and shiny hair. There are days when my hair gets frizzy and looks dry and there are some flyaway hairs that's hard to tame. Anybody has tips on how to make your hair shiny and more manageable?

I just tried Sunsilk in the purple bottle to make your hair straight & it made it so soft & shiny. I also used the product for to use on damp hair. It was a sample & I loved it(I'm definately buying;)), 1st time in awhile my hair has been this soft & shiny.:)

does shampoo really make you hair shiny? it does make but after few days its gone and the chemical in it affects the hair. As we continuously use chemicals in our hair it gradually spoils our head and hair as well. So i dont prefer a chemical may be a mild chemical is ok and i prefer "shika".

The best thing is to avoid too many products like blow driers, that burn out the ends of the hair. I like to use an egg now and then before I rinse my hair out, then add a drop of jasmine oil to make it smell nice. I do use the odd hot oil hair treatment also when I have a couple of bucks to spare. Hot oil treatment really works and makes the hair very shiny and keeps it in good condition.I like to look after my hair as every one says I have good,thick,long hair.

I use Citre Shine on my hair. It's an anti-frizz serum. It works wonders. After application, my hair is soft and manageable, without frizz, and since it's a serum, it adds a little bit of shine to your hair. I don't know if it's available in your country but try other brands of anti-frizz serum.

1.Give your hair an every day wash.Never use the make-up things which more or less have some side effect.2.Try to eat something which can make your hair as black as it is.Ask medical man for some advice when you have a free day.

If you want shiny hair after using your shampoo, rinse your hair (last rinse) with water and vinegar and use only cold water(not frozen!!)

I've heard that using mayonnaise on your hair will make it more shiny and manageable. But, I prefer to stick with John Frieda's Frizz-Ease hair serum.

try using mayonnaise and leave it on your hair for 30 minutes. they say that mayonnaise was one of the tricks to make our hair shiny while others say that using an egg for our hair will also do the job. just follow the same procedure

I usually put some coconut oit at my hair 1 hour before shampooing. I do massage and wait umtil it absorb in the root and hair than use shampoo and conditioner separately. That's will makes our hair natural glow shiny

I have dandruff problems. I have tried different anti-dandruff shampoo's for it but it seems that they do not make an effect with it. I did found Moralizes effective though. I use it at least once a week and during the first couple of days, the itchiness is gone.I've tried alot of anti dandruff shampoo with little result. I found some time ago one shampoo that really work on me. Nelsen Blue. I don't know if it will work for you, but it's the only one that works for me.

A lot of Mediterraneans (including me!) use Olive Oil as a monthly treatment on their hair - I just put it on dry hair, just before I wash it, leave it in for about ten minutes (or over night, if you have old pillowcases!) then rinse it out. I find it always makes my hair feel silky and soft, and a little goes a very long way!

Wash your hair with an egg, rinse it out and them wash it with your normal shampoo. I do this from time to time and I love how it makes my hair look.

I agree with Chrissy, your first respondent, that mayonnaise is something good to use. Unfortunately, we discovered its resourceful this past weekend as a lice epidemic broke out at Jenna's school. We spend the last 3 days wearing mayonnaise in our hair overnight with a shower cap on to smother the dag-blasted things. The good news is that our daughter's hair is cleaner and shinier than ever thanks to Hellman's. To Hell(man's) with lice!

quality of the hair also coming from the genetic, not only from food we eat or any treatment you used. After all you try that treatment not work, I suggest you going to straightening, or rebonding the hair, because some time it's a bit curly type hair look messy. So better going salon do it and can see fast result. Look smooth, silky.
