How to Get Shiny Hair 2011-06-17 13:07:07

Three Secrets of Shiny Hair

Katie Holmes hit the red carpet for last night's Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards — and we were promptly blinded by her impeccably shiny hair. Though we don't know Katie's exact secret, we're betting that her lustrous locks are the result of a few easy healthy-hair moves. For three ways to get lustrous, shiny hair, just keep reading.

1. Use a hair mask once a week to keep color-treated hair supersoft. Try Kiehl's Sunflower Oil Color-Preserving Masque ($25), which is infused with shine-inducing vitamins and fatty acids. L'Oreal EverStrong Deep Replenishing Masque ($8) is also a great choice for all hair types.

2. If you've been OD'ing on styling products, buildup could be causing your hair to look dull. Use a clarifying shampoo, like Carol's Daughter Rosemary Mint Clarifying Shampoo ($16) to restore shine.

3. After my hairstylist told me about the wonders of boar-bristle brushes, I've been using one to maximize shine. Not only are natural boar bristles less likely to break or damage your hair, but they help it appear smoother and shinier, with less flyaways. This Hana K. Diamond Wood Boar Bristle Brush ($10, originally $13) is an affordable buy.
