• Use Vitamin E. This vitamin is the epitome of shine. Vitamin E has special agents that create a silky, shiny effect for your hair. You can take a supplement or use a leave-in conditioner, shampoo or deep conditioner fortified with vitamin E.

• Use hot oil treatments.

• Use moisturizing shampoos and deep penetrating conditioners. These products are ideal when you are trying to get soft, healthy hair. They help fill empty spaces in the hair shaft and seal in shine. In particular, be sure to use deep conditioners often.
