Spring has sprung, it's getting warmer out and everything is great, with the frustrating exception of the lingering dullness a lot of us are experiencing with our hair after winter. If you know what we're talking about, don't worry because there are a few things you can do to help combat lackluster locks and boost your hair's natural shine.

Conditioning masks

Healthy, hydrated hair is more likely to shine than dry strands, so try incorporating a deep conditioning mask into your weekly haircare routine. It will help to replenish lost moisture and nutrients that get zapped by heat tools, dry air, hot air, chlorine and sea water, to name a few.

Cold showers

Although it may sound quite unpleasant, rinsing your hair with cold water before stepping out of the shower can make your strands shinier. This approach is definitely worth trying because it's quick, relatively painless and won't cost a thing.

Cut back on heat styling

Heat damage is one of the biggest causes of dry, dull hair, so try to cut back whenever possible. There are a lot of heat-free hairstyles to try, and you could even learn how to make your hair style itself while you sleep! Now that's our kind of multi-tasking.

Thermal protectants

Whenever you do need to use heat to style your hair, make sure you always apply a thermal protectant beforehand. Use a smoothing cream before a blowout, a straightening spray before using your flat iron and a wave enhancing spray for effortlessly textured locks.

Hair oil

One of the easiest ways to add shine to damp or dry hair is to smooth some hair oil through the mid-lengths and ends. This will nourish your locks and seal in more moisture to promote smooth, glossy strands.
