How To Get Your Silkiest Hair Yet

How To Get Your Silkiest Hair Yet

Let’s face it, nothing beats that silky, smooth finish you get from the salon – but what if we said that you could achieve that same effect at home? You best believe it! We’ve compiled a list of our top 10 tips on how to get silky hair, so you can flaunt smooth, glossy tresses every day… 

How To Get Silky Hair 

1. Use A Shampoo For Silky Hair 

When it comes to getting silky hair, it’s all about finding the right shampoo. Use the wrong one and hair can look dry, dull and lacklustre. Instead, use a shampoo with hydrating and brightening ingredients that smooth the cuticle and create a glossy finish.  

 

Our LUMINIZER MOISTURE BOOST SHAMPOO is a great shampoo for silky hair. It’s infused with our unique Opti-PLEX™ technology and a micellar oil complex that work together to provide 48 hours of weightless hydration, while strengthening, smoothing and illuminating hair. Glossier and silkier tresses await! 

2. Rinse Hair With Cold Water 

Rinsing hair with cold water can mean the difference between dry, frizzy tresses and a smooth, silky finish. Of course, we’re not saying you need to have a freezing shower. Either keep the water warm (not steaming hot) throughout, or rinse off your shampoo with cold water to close the hair cuticles.  

 

 3. Don’t Skip The Conditioner  

Trust us when we say that you can’t get silky hair without conditioner. By infusing strands with nourishing ingredients, this conditioning treatment keeps hair feeling soft and smooth. For best results, apply every time you wash your hair from mid-shafts to ends.  

 

For silky hair, give our LUMINIZER WEIGHTLESS CONDITIONER a go. It boasts a unique Smoothing-Swish™ Technology that keeps hair soft, full of life and silky smooth for 48 hours. To try it is to love it! 

4. Don’t Wash Hair Too Often 

Ever wondered how often you should wash your hair? Well, it turns out that most of us are cleansing too often – and it’s affecting the health of our tresses. 

 

Over cleansing can strip hair of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and brittle. Instead, try washing your hair just 2 or 3 times a week (or at the very least every other day) to keep it clean and healthy.  

 

5. Use Heat Protector  

You know that smooth finish you get from a salon? It’s not just down to a great blow-dry. The stylist will apply a heat protector that prevents frizz and damage, while adding a glossy shine.  

 

To achieve that same silky hair at home, why not use our BLOW DRY AQUA PRIMER? It offers heat protection up to 230°C, while hyaluronic acid and a WEATHER-SHIElD™ technology protect from humidity and frizz. Expect hair to look softer, smoother and shinier!  

6. Comb With Care 

Take it from us, taking a brush straight to wet tresses is a recipe for frizz and breakage. Our top tip for smooth, silky hair? Brush with a wide-toothed comb, working from the ends upwards. 

 

7. Embrace Protective Serums

When hair looks dull and lacklustre, there’s no better way to lock in extra shine than with a hair serum. Opt for formulas with hydrating ingredients (think oils and hyaluronic acid) that smooth and add shine.  

 

Our AQUA SHINE SERUM is infused with hyaluronic acid and our WEATHER-SHIElD™ technology to protect hair from humidity and reduce frizz. It’s the secret to your silkiest hair yet!  

8. Invest In Leave-In Conditioners 

One of the easiest ways to get silky hair? Spritz a leave-in treatment onto your hair to immediately lock in moisture after showering. Look for products that condition and smooth, while building a barrier to lock in moisture. 

 

Our ONE SHOT PROTEIN HAIR TREATMENT boasts a repairing and nourishing formula with creatine, guarana, wheat and silk proteins to help strengthen and repair. Expect healthier, glossier and silkier hair.  

9. Get Regular Trims 

Nothing causes breakage, flyaways and frizz like split ends that travel up the cuticle. Our advice? Get regular trims to maintain the healthy look and feel of your hair. It’s the easiest way to flaunt a smooth, silky hairdo. 

 

10. Finish Your Look With A Shine Spray 

Another great way to make hair silky? Apply a layer of dry oil! It’ll act as a barrier, preventing humidity from penetrating into the hair shaft and causing frizz.  

 

Infused with argan and jojoba oils, our HED SHINE HAIR OIL MIST SPRAY delivers long-lasting shine and a silky smooth finish.
