Dull hair.

I notice both mine and my daughter's hair is very dull lately. What can we do to get it shinier? She is 7.

  • Use Strawberry hair mask: mash eight strawberries with one-tablespoon mayonnaise. Massage this into washed but damp hair. Cover it with a shower cap and then a warm towel. Wash out with a shampoo and then condition. This mask will give your hair a rich gloss.

  • olive oil. always rinse with cool water, even if you are just rinsing out conditioner. Warm water opens up your hair's cuticle and lets nutrients in and dirtout. Cool water will close your hair's cuticle and lock in moisture and nutrients, adding shine. You can also give your hair a little blast of cool air from your hair dryer.

  • There are shampoos and conditioners that will fix that problem with her hair. There are many like Pantene, Dove, Garnier, etc. You need to pick one you like. some even have strawberry or various scents that are appealing too.

  • You can try several things: 1) Simply try rinsing your hair in cool water. 2) Use a clarifying shampoo once a week to rid your hair of any products or chemicals that might have built up. 3) Use a product such an Enjoy Hair and Skin Treatment Oil- apply to damp hair and/or before any heat source. This product is non-greasy, does not contain alcohol, controls frizz, adds shine and blocks humidity. 4) At the end of styling, use a shine spray. I always recommend CHI Shine Infusion. Simply spray it on the hair. It also controls frizz as well as adds shine!

  • Thanks everybody! We did the strawberry mask last night. We look gorgeous, and it was a lot of fun! I am also going to buy a clarifying shampoo.
