Your time to shine

There is nothing that stands out more than beautiful, gleaming, shiny hair. Every girl wants it, so here are 3 things to make your hair bling!

1. Aloe Vera Gel

Not only does aloe vera gel give your hair shine, but it's great for the overall health of your hair. After you are done styling your hair, section your hair, and rub about a dime sized dollop (for each hair section, maybe more for longer thicker hair)  between the palms of your hands and smooth the gel down the length of your hair. Be careful not to use too much, it might make your hair a bit sticky.

2. Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine

This stuff is great, not only for shine, but it also helps smooth down edges and its great for slicking the hair into a bun or ponytail. If your wearing your hair down, simply rub a small amount between the palms of your hands, and scrunch it into the length of your damp or wet hair. If you choose to wear your hair up, apply it to the edges and nape of your hair, and/or use it to slick your hair into your ponytail or bun.
Note: when using this product, remember that a little bit will go a long way, try not to be to heavy handed with this product.

3. Oils

Oils are key to sealing in moisture and they can also add shine as well. Just smooth a few drops into the length  of the hair and comb through. There are many oils out there, every one has there own type of oil to which they swear by. Such as; olive, coconut, argan, and many more. You will have to do some experimentation to find out which one is best for you. I prefer; grapeseed, jojoba,macadamia,and argan oil because they are light on the hair, non greasy, and doesn't add weight to my curls. Remember not to be heavy handed with oil, it will make your hair greasy.

It could be said that when using the products, you can get the best of both worlds. This is because not only are you maintaining the style of your hair, but you're also giving it the nutrience it needs to flourish and thrive!
