Avoid an overload of coffee and soda: Coffee and soda are two jumpstarts that many people turn to in the morning. However, too much caffeine can prevent shiny and smooth hair. Instead, grab a smoothie or juice with fruits and vegetables in it to add the shine your craving.
Rinse your hair with cold water: You might have heard about this method from other curlies, and there is a reason why. Rinsing your hair with cold water causes the cuticle of your hair to lie flat and the cool water smooths your hair. It might not be the most comfortable way to end a shower, but your curls will thank you for it.
Want to color your curls? Use henna: Henna is a natural way to color your hair that many curlies turn to, but it also improves your hair’s health and adds shine. Before you turn to a store-bought color, try henna first.
Test products: Thankfully, there are products made for curly hair that are specifically meant to add shine and take away frizz. Trial and error is key, but when you find a product that adds shine to your hair and also takes frizz away, you will never quit using it.
