To get the shiny hair that you want and long for you must know that different hair textures need different ingredients and steps to get your hair right where you want it to be. If you have typically normal hair, you should make sure you use a shampoo that has silk amino acids. This can also be found in many gels adn creams in your drug or beauty store. If you have fine thing hair you need to use a shampoo with wheat proteins and polymers. It is also important to use lots of spray volumizers to give your hair a fuller look.

There are many different types out there so just use what works best for you but this helps to tame the frizz and help lay the hair cutical down.
There are several other tips that you should always use no matter what type of hair you have. STOP washing your hair in hot water. This is the worst thing that you can possibly do for you hair. Rinse your hair each time you shower in the coldest water you can stand, this closes the cutical and alows your hair to have a smoother look. Use a conditioner and apply starting about three inches from your scalp. You will show the most oil in your roots so this helps to eliminate that while still giving your hair moisture. Use jojoba oil when you are done showering. Simply apply a small amount in your hand and rub your hands through your hair, again starting about 3 inches from your roots. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey into four cups of warm water, shampoo your hair and then pour the misture through your hair, DO NOT rinse. If you have hard or soft water get a showerhead filter, your hair will be much softer just from this small difference. Finally, get plenty of protein, zinc, and vitamins B, C, and E.
