Trying to achieve smooth, sleek hair when you're in a rush can be difficult, if not totally impossible sometimes. Fear not, however, because there are a few things you can do to get the high-shine tresses of your dreams before heading out the door.

Even if you only have five minutes to spare, the following tips and tricks will help you to get the look you want!

Instant gratification

If you're getting ready to go out, to work, to school, or anywhere you're definitely going to be late getting to, add shine and instantly banish flyaways with lashings of high-shine finishing spray. This will help to tack down any rogue flyaways while controlling frizz.

When you have 15 minutes to spare...

If you have a little more time, apply a straightening cream and use a flat iron to straighten your hair. Brush your hair through when you're done, then go wild with the finishing spray.

Long term solutions

Healthy-looking, shiny hair that lasts requires a little more work. In order to make your newfound glossiness a long-term thing, you need to show your mane the TLC it deserves. What that means is conditioning after each shampoo and taking the time to do a nourishing mask at least once a week.

These things will help to replenish lost nutrients and moisture, something that will become even more important as we head into dry heater air season AKA winter. You should also get regular trims to remove any damaged ends that are resistant to shine.

That's it! You and your hair need never have a dull moment again!
