How to Use a Shine-Enhancing Cream in Your Hair

Get Shiny, Healthy-Looking Hair With Just One Product

The secret to a smooth and luminous blow-out? A simple shine-enhancing cream. Not only will this type of product provide a bit of body to the hair, but it will also moisturize and reduce frizz. To use, squeeze about a dime- or quarter-sized amount (depending on your texture) to your fingertips, emulsify with your fingers, and distribute through damp hair from back to front. Blow-dry as normal with a round brush.

Tips: If you have particularly oily hair, apply to the ends first, working up to the roots. If you're lacking volume, use your round brush to overdirect the hair in the opposite direction while blow-drying. As far as product goes, for two great suggestions, just read more.

  • Twisted Sista Relaxing Straightening Creme — At less than $5 a pop, this cream, which smells like watermelons, won't bust your budget. But it will gently relax your curls and waves, all while protecting your strands from heat and UV damage. Available at Target, Rite Aid, and Duane Reade drugstores in NY and NJ.
  • Rusk Deepshine Lustre Shine Enhancing Lusterizer: With an oceanic scent, this cream ($14) also protects the hair (especially necessary when heat's involved). Its light texture won't weigh fine- or medium-textured hair down either, and is perfect for detangling. Available at Rusk salons and Ulta stores.
