Shiny Hair

Doesn’t it seem like the person with shiny hair is so beautiful?  Don’t you feel like that should be you?  Now, it can be.

Hair is coated with natural oil called sebum, which allows it to shine and retain its moisture.  Sebum is produced by a gland called sebaceous and is found near every hair follicle in the scalp. However, this natural oil is heavily affected by our hormones, the things we use to style or wash our hair and by dry windy weather.  This then leaves our hair feeling and looking dry and boring.  

But you can control the destiny of your hair.  Several products have been created specifically for enhancement of shiny hair.  Hair shampoo has the purpose of cleaning the dirt and buildup your hair encounters with every day life. But its harsh chemicals can leave your hair dry, and that is when hair conditioner comes into play.  Hair conditioner works like a lotion for your hair.  It allows it to recondition its follicles and get back to its normal self.  But these two items are made for cleaning your hair in the shower.
