Shiny natural hair is one of the tell tale signs of healthy hair and it is aesthetically pleasing too. As a natural one of the valid goals to work towards asides the very popular length is a natural sheen. In fact your hair may be long but unhealthy but unhealthy hair can’t have a natural lustre to it and that is certain.
Today I have highlighted 4 ways to get naturally shiny hair, these are things you can never go wrong with. Most of them are really easy things that you probably overlooked.
1. Deep condition regularly
Note, I said regularly and not frequently.
Deep conditioning is a great way to get your hair moisture and protein levels to stay optimal. Doing the right type of deep conditions to soothe your hair needs will make sure to get your hair to an healthy state and keep it there. This will make your hair soft, help you retain growth and give you that shiny natural hair look you have always wanted.
Protein treatments are best done once a month or a little more often depending on you hair needs while moisture treatments can be done as often as once a week. It is important to be careful about how often you do deep conditions and how long you leave them in.

Eating healthy, drinking water, regular exercise. Those things are so cliché but they are the truth. Your body health has a direct impact to the health of your hair, skin, nails and life in general. If you have been taking it for granted, now is the perfect time to start up a new self care regimen.
3. Scalp massages for shiny hair
Lets do the math.
Healthy hair equals shiny hair. Healthy hair grows from a healthy scalp. Therefore, shiny hair means you scalp care game must be on point. For your scalp care game to be on point, that means you wash your scalp properly and you also stimulate it by doing regular scalp massages.
Doing weekly scalp massages will stimulate blood flow to the area, this means, your scalp gets the nutrients it needs and you hair grows out better, stronger and a lot shinier.
