I hear the phase "you're hair looks dull" almost everyday and it kinda brings down my self esteem as a curly teen. I use a combination of Curls products and Shea Moisture. No matter what I do my hair just won't shine like people want it to! What should I do to get it to at least have sheen?
My natural hair color is a reddish sandy brown
Rinsing with cold water as your final rinse after washing helps close the cuticle and may help with the shine, a avc helps the same way. I dont know if u use oils on your hair? I'm a curly teen too and coconut oil is one of my farvorites for shine.
I'm a curly teen also, and I hate it when people try to change or correct my hair! I've been told by other kids to get a perm, but i like my natural curls. If YOU want it to be shiny, then i recommend going to target ( they have a wide variety) and getting a shine product. If you don't really care about how shiny it is then tell them that and move on. It's your hair!
It depends and because of the coiled texture it doesn't reflect light like straight/straighter hair types. My natural hair isn't shiny. I can have a bit of sheen when I use oils like coconut oil and castor oil.
