The Ultimate Guide to Shiny and Healthy Hair

Shiny hair is something that we all strive for, but achieving it can be difficult.

If you’re looking for the ultimate guide on how to get shiny and healthy hair, you’ve come to the right place!

Continue reading below for some of Anh’s tips and tricks for achieving and maintaining shiny hair, so you can have the beautiful locks you’ve been dreaming of.
1) Use a high-quality shampoo and treatment

A good shampoo and treatment are absolutely vital when looking to maintain your hair’s shine. When used consistently, they can help to add moisture to your hair, which is essential for preventing dryness and frizz that can detract from the hair’s natural shine. The goal is to enhance the overall appearance and health of your hair, leaving it looking silky, smooth, and radiant. Anh highly suggests using Milbon’s Illuminating Glow Shampoo and Treatment for its Illuminating emollient oil technology. This oil works to restore lipids that have been lost through environmental and chemical damage to the cuticle’s outer layer. Replenishing these lipids is essential for the hair to regain its healthy and shiny look.

2) Wash your hair with cold water

Washing your hair with cold water can help you achieve shiny hair by sealing the cuticles and locking in moisture, which makes your hair look shinier and healthier. Cold water can also help to reduce frizz and prevent damage to your hair, which can lead to a dull and lifeless appearance. The next time you’re at the shampoo bowl at the salon, request that your hair be washed with cold water!

3) Brush your hair with a quality round bristle brush

A good quality round brush can make a huge difference in the shine of the hair, especially since using the wrong tools, for example using a brush that’s made with plastic, during a blowout can damage the tools along with the hair. Anh recommends using ATO’s Boar Bristle Round Brush. This brush features nylon threads, which help to detangle and gently smooth out the hair to reduce frizz, add volume, and create a smooth, shiny finish that looks healthy and beautiful.

4) Use a high-quality leave-in treatment

Lastly, Anh recommends always using a leave-in treatment to achieve shiny hair by providing your hair with extra nourishment and hydration. Leave-in treatments are designed to penetrate the hair shaft and provide long-lasting moisture, which can help to reduce dryness and frizz and create a sleek, shiny finish.

If you’re looking to give your hair some extra shine, we recommend using Milbon’s Illuminating Glow Oil. This leave-in treatment is enhanced with marula oil and its unique formulation instantly provides sleekness and shimmering brilliance by restoring the natural luminosity of your hair.


Achieving shiny and healthy hair is a combination of good hair care habits and using the right products. By incorporating a few simple tips and tricks into your hair care routine, such as using a high-quality shampoo and treatment, using a quality bristle round brush, washing your hair with cold water, and using a leave-in treatment, you can nourish your hair and enhance its natural shine and radiance.

With a little bit of effort and consistency, you can have healthy, shiny hair that looks and feels great!
