Top Tips to Add Shine to Dull Hair

We all want to know how to make hair shiny, right? After all,
shiny hair is healthy hair. But if your locks having been
lacking their usual luster lately, you may be suffering from a
case of dull hair.

Dull hair is typically dry or damaged hair that’s lost its
healthy, natural shine. If this sounds like you, it may be time
to change the way you care for your hair. Keep reading for our
top damaged hair treatments to transform dull hair into shiny,
healthy, silky hair.

How to Make Hair Shiny & Fix Dull Hair

Shiny Hair Starts From Within

The health of your hair is related to the overall health of
your body, so it’s imperative to keep your body (and your hair
follicles) nourished with a balanced diet. Foods that
encourage the growth of healthy, shiny hair include chicken,
eggs, avocado, green leafy vegetables, lentils, citrus fruits,
and nuts.

Or take Viviscal Hair Growth
Supplements. Viviscal is specially formulated with the
necessary nutrients to encourage the regular growth
of thick, healthy hair.*

Clarify… Naturally

Over time, sebum (natural scalp oils) and styling products form
a buildup on hair. This residue attracts dust and dirt, making
hair appear dull and limp.

Luckily, you can easily remove dulling residue with something
you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard: apple cider
vinegar. Just mix equal parts water with apple cider vinegar in
a spray bottle. Then spray hair to saturation after shampooing.
Allow mixture to stay on hair for several minutes, and then
rinse out with cold water.

The apple cider vinegar will gently remove product buildup and
residue, leaving hair shiny and silky.

Add an Elixir

Dull hair is often very damaged hair, and prone to thinness.
Give your locks a boost of body by styling with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying
Elixir. This leave-in serum treatment is formulated with
phytonutrient-rich Ana:Tel™ complex, which makes hair thicker
and fuller looking. Comb 2-3 pumps of Elixir through dry or
damp hair and then style as usual for gorgeous, thick-looking

Make Your Own Damaged Hair Treatment

You can also add moisture back into dry or damaged hair with
one delicious ingredient: avocado! Avocado is rich in hair-healthy
fats and proteins so it can help replenish damaged hair with
much-needed nutrients.

Just mash up or purée half of a ripe avocado and apply to damp,
shampooed hair. Allow to sit for 15 minutes, then rinse out
with cold water. Let your locks air dry, and enjoy your soft,
silky hair!

Minimize Damage

Remember, healthy hair is shiny hair, so follow these tips to
minimize damage and keep hair looking as healthy (and shiny) as

  • Rinse hair with water before swimming in chlorinated pools.
  • Defend hair against UV damage by wearing a hat or a
    leave-in conditioner that contains sunscreen protection.
  • Install a shower filter if you have hard water, which
    usually has more mineral deposits that can build up and dull
    your hair.
  • Wash your hair 3-4 times per week to prevent a buildup of
    dust and oils that can make hair look dull.
  • Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo
    and Conditioner to cleanse and
    moisturize the hair and scalp without drying it out.
  • After conditioning, finish by rinsing hair with cold water,
    which seals the cuticle to help protect hair strands from
  • Brush hair with a natural boar-bristle brush to help evenly
    distribute your hair’s natural oils through the hair, keeping
    it shiny and moisturized.
  • Use a heat protectant spray to defend hair against the
    damaging effects of heat-styling tools like hair dryers,
    curling irons, and straighteners. Or better yet, skip the heat
    tools altogether and embrace your natural hair texture!
  • Swap your cotton pillowcase for a silk or satin one. Cotton
    fibers cause friction that is rough on hair, leaving strands
    dried out.

Remember, healthy hair starts from within. Even with great hair
care techniques, you won’t have truly healthy-looking hair
unless you’re getting adequate nutrition. Viviscal Supplements are
scientifically formulated with AminoMar™, biotin, iron, and
vitamin C to make sure your hair follicles are getting the
right nutrients for healthy hair growth.*
