The Science Of Shiny Hair

The Science Of Shiny Hair


Are you losing the shiny hair battle or finding it hard to maintain a glossy glow? With all the styling product deposits, environmental influences, and heat applications, your hair is experiencing stressors that make it look dull and unhealthy. Elon Essentials understands these issues fully which is why we developed exclusive products that give hair a radiant appearance.

It’s Just Science

From the high fashion magazines to the red carpets, superstars are choosing stunning hairstyles with dazzling shines. More importantly, you don’t need to visit a salon to achieve it yourself. Here are a few things to keep in mind about shiny hair, health, and issues that you want to avoid.

  • Dirt And Grime Deposits


Dirt, oil, debris, and grime deposits build up quickly on the strands and interrupt how natural light reflects off the hair. Dirty hair will make the strands appear dull and lusterless. The scalp’s sebaceous glands also produce natural oils that tend to permeate the strands which reduce the hair’s glossy volume. Oily hair also creates a dirty look which many shampoos strip the head of. Utilizing Elon’s moisturize-rich shampoo and conditioner will reduce excessive oils while maintaining a natural, shinier look.


Elon’s moisturizing shampoo and conditioner also preserve the hair’s luminosity. While a water application will remove most of the dirt on your hair, it will not reduce the oil which means you need to wash your hair based on its texture recommendation. If you want to restore shine to extremely dry hair, you will want to wash your hair weekly while rinsing it more frequently to retain a fresh, clean look. For thick, aging, curly, color-treated, or damaged hair, you will need to wash it more often and use a scalp cleanser.


  • Brushing Technique


You would think that brushing your hair would be a simple, straightforward task, but anything from brush type to technique can affect the way your hair looks. Not doing it right will lead to tangles, breakage, and even hair loss. Use a wide-tooth comb to remove tangles, a round brush for blow-drying, and a boar bristle brush for stronger, healthier, and shinier hair. You should also comb and brush your hair gently to avoid breakage.


  • Styling And Finishing Shine Products


After brushing and blow drying your hair, you must use a styling and finishing shine product as this light treatment will reduce frizz and fly-aways. Elon Moisture Therapy Styling And Finishing Shine contains hydrolyzed silk for hydration, B-5 for damage, and silica for moisture to revitalize the strands and bring back a gorgeous, natural shine.


  •  Heat Damage


Your hair will not appear shiny if it is overprocessed with heat damage or chemicals which is not as easy as it sounds to avoid when you must use blow dryers, dyes, or chemical-containing products every day. Not only will your hair appear brittle and dull, but it will not allow you to achieve a shiny look regardless of the styling products you use. Using Elon Moisture Therapy Replenishing Masque will help restore its luster.
