GREAT-looking hair makes all the difference to how a woman feels about her appearance. Just look at the top models.
Glossy and shiny hair always looks great and is generally associated with overall good health.

An unhealthy lifestyle, and that definitely includes smoking, drinking and eating junk food, can affect your health in many ways, but it can also affect your beauty and your hair.

In fact, your unhealthy lifestyle can show up in the way your hair looks so make an effort to follow a healthy lifestyle and your hair – and skin and nails, for that matter – will look in better condition, naturally.

So if your hair is in good condition and your health is in check, there are a few extra finishing touches to make it look even glossier.

Dull hair can be caused by the food you are eating. Processed food and junk food from a box is a definite no-no, bad for both your skin and hair. So try to include more fresh fruit and vegetables in your daily diet.

Avoid fizzy drinks, excess coffee and caffeine. Avoid fried food and rather opt to bake or grill your dishes. And remember to drink many glasses of water every day.

If you colour your hair, remember that the hair-dying process strips the hair, which often results in a dull color. Avoid washing your hair every day as you will dry your hair out, therefore making it look dull and dreary.

If your hair is very greasy and needs daily washing, speak to your hairdresser about a product that can help combat oiliness, or again, look to your nutrition as this could be the cause.

Condition your hair when you wash and treat it to an intense, repairing masque at least once a week. When applying conditioner, never apply to the roots as this will only make your hair more greasy.

Lastly, you can apply a small amount of hair silicone to your hair after you have styled it. Place it in the palm of your hand and rub your palms together. Then, work the product through your hair using your fingers and avoiding the roots.
