5 Ways to Achieve Shinier, Softer, Healthier Hair
by Renz Paulo Rodriguez | 4 min read
Your hair is a big part of your look and identity. Whether you have short, long, curly, or straight hair, it's important to keep it healthy and look great so you can be confident in any situation. Unfortunately, many people struggle with dry and brittle hair that can lead to breakage and fraying. Luckily, there are lots of simple things you can do to make your hair shinier, softer, and healthier than ever before. Follow these tips from our experts to get the shiny, beautiful hair of your dreams.
1. Use a Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner
To achieve the ultimate hair health, you should use a gentle shampoo and conditioner.
- Gentle Shampoos do not contain sulfates, which are detergents that can dry out your scalp. Look for words like "sulfate-free," "no sulfates," or "mild" on the label.
- Gentle conditioners are made for those with sensitive scalps or who color their hair frequently (remember that coloring strips away moisture). They're usually free of harsh ingredients such as sulfates and paraben preservatives. Look for labels that say they're free from these chemicals to ensure they're safe to use.
Honeyskin Gentle Moisturizing Honey Shampoo & Conditioner is formulated with natural and scalp-stimulating ingredients to leave hair feeling voluminous, shiny, and healthy. Aloe Vera, as opposed to water, is the base of our shampoo and conditioner, so a little goes a long way.

2. Protect your hair against the sun
To protect your hair from sun damage and keep it shiny and healthy:
- Avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. As much as we all love to bask in the sun, it's not good for our hair! When outside during daylight hours keep your head covered with a hat or scarf.
- Use hair sunscreens regularly throughout the year—not just in the summertime! Sunscreen won't just help prevent burns; it also helps block UV rays that cause premature graying of hair!
You can protect your hair against the sun by avoiding direct sunlight, wearing a hat, and using hair sunscreen. If you do not want to wear a hat or sunscreen every day, it is still important to use both on days when you will be in direct sunlight for long periods of time.
3. Use natural hair treatments at home
One of the most common causes of hair damage is using products that are harsh on your hair. So, if you're looking to achieve shinier, softer, healthier locks at home, try using natural hair treatments instead.
- Natural products won't dry out your scalp or strip away essential oils (which can make every layer of your hair more brittle). They also contain fewer chemicals and may be easier for some people to use since they aren't as greasy or heavy like other products.
- Gentle ingredients like Manuka Honey, egg whites, and yogurt can provide deep conditioning without being too harsh on sensitive scalps or exacerbating pre-existing conditions such as dandruff or psoriasis. Plus, these ingredients are cheaper than salon brands, so you'll save money in the long run!
4. Get healthy from the inside out
While it's true that your hair is made up of protein, it can also be damaged by too much of it. The more moisture you put into your body, the healthier your hair will be.
We all know how important water is to good health—but did you know that consuming an adequate amount of this vital resource can also help to keep your locks looking healthy? While drinking plenty of water helps strengthen our bodies from the inside out, it also has a direct effect on how healthy our hair appears on the outside.
If you're trying to grow out damaged or unhealthy-looking locks and want them to look shinier and softer (without having to shell out hundreds of dollars at a salon), there are plenty of ways for you to achieve these results at home using just one ingredient: WATER!
5. Avoid harsh chemicals in your hair.
You should avoid harsh chemicals in your hair.
- Use a heat protectant before using a hot iron or blow dryer. Damage from heat styling can be prevented by using a heat protectant before styling with heat tools such as flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers. This will also help to keep your hair healthy in the long term by preventing damage caused by friction between the tool and your hair.
- Avoid bleaching or dyeing your hair regularly. If you need to cover gray roots, try opting for temporary root touch-ups instead of regular applications of permanent color or bleach on all of your hair strands at once—this helps prevent excessive breakage due to chemical processing over time!
- Avoid products containing alcohol. Alcohol is found in many types of shampoos as an ingredient used to add volume. However, too much alcohol can make it harder for oily/dry scalps alike to absorb moisture from conditioners after washing.
Treat your hair well to achieve shinier, softer, and healthier hair.
Let's just get right to it: healthy hair is shiny, soft, and manageable. And as you know, your skin and scalp are external indicators of your internal body health. So when you're treating your hair well (and face) with natural products that support its health, you're also nourishing the inside parts of yourself which make up who you really are! We hope these tips help you get the healthy, shiny, and soft locks of your dreams!
