Why Do Many Hair Products Give a Shine or Sheen To Hair?

Shiny hair starts at the roots but sadly, all hair shines differently – especially if it is dyed. Have you ever wondered why some women’s hair is super shiny, and others (or yours) is not? The oils that your scalp produces play a considerable role in the lustre of your hair. You see, your scalp naturally creates an oil called sebum; this is what protects and nourishes your lovely locks. The sebum will slowly travel down the shaft of your hair, coating every strand and producing a sheen.

But the real key to shiny hair is simply the result of light bouncing off the hair strands and oils within your hair. And light reflects best off of smooth flat hair. Luckily, for women who don’t produce enough sebum or have frizzy hair, tons of hair products can help.

These hair products can help infuse oils into your hair while also smoothing out tiny fractures in the hair follicle that create the dreaded frizz and dullness. And the result, hair that “shine bright like a diamond.”

How To Avoid Hair Sheen

If you are scouring the internet for a way to lessen the amount of sheen in your hair, get yourself some dry hair powder. Centuries ago, before the liquid shampoo, hair was simply freshened using a variety of crushed herbs – essentially a dry powder. Once liquid shampoo was created the dry shampoo era seemed to fade into darkness. But luckily, hair dresses around the world always kept them on hand and never let the product fully disappear. Now in today’s busy lifestyles, ripping and running everywhere, every day a dry powder or shampoo is a lifesaver!

What is “Dry Powder”?

Dry powders for your hair, also referred to as mattifying and texturizing powders – add lightweight volume and texture to your hair. These dry hair powders contain some rough particles like rice powder or silica silylate to create a matte surface by increasing the friction between hair strands. If your hair is thick, a dry powder can add some incredible texture, and they add volume to thin, fine hair. If you struggle with your hair turning greasy quickly and you don’t want to or have time to wash it every day, the dry shampoo may be your savior.

Dry powders or dry shampoo, as many people call them, can be a lifesaver when you don’t have time to wash your hair daily. If you are a busy boss babe that’s always going a million miles an hour, having a bottle of dry shampoo should be in your arsenal. And if you are looking for an all-natural dry shampoo, check out “Powder” by Hairstory. This fantastic product is perfect for all hair types. It is a dry shampoo recipe that naturally absorbs oils and reverses greasy hair leaving a lovely matte finish.
