I don't know if cold water really helps or not. It is SUPPOSED to helpt o lay the cuticle of your hair flat so that each hair will be smoother. What I find works well is a little bit of silicone-based shine serum (which is available from many brands) in you hair while it is wet, and if it's still not shiny enough for you just take the tinyiest bit and rub it over the palms of you hands and then apply it very lightly to dry hair.

I have never heard of using cold water to make your hair shiny. When I was a child my father taught us to use rain water that we caught in large container or melt some fresh snow. This is something I still do for the most part because it makes your hair softer. one time when I got my hair cut the lady told me to switch which brand of shampoo and conditioner every couple of weeks. Hair gets a build up from using just one brand all the time. Hope this helps.
