So often when we talk about shiny hair we're really talking about straight hair—smooth surfaces reflect more light, so kink-free hair naturally tends to be shinier than other textures. But that doesn't mean you can't get in on the shine action if you're wavy, coily, or curly. Here are a few tricks that work on all hair types:

1) Try a hair oil to finish off a blowout like Naomie Harris. This is especially great for dry hair types, which crave the moisture oil brings. DD: I have friends with heavier hair who swear by oils. As suggested this is for dry hair types. I'm exempt here.
2) Give your hair an old-school cool-water rinse in the shower. It seals your cuticle, which means it'll be more reflective when dry. DD: This is a must. The icier the better. Buck up. It's over in a matter of seconds.
3) To get a glossy finish without looking greasy, spritz shine spray on your hands first and then apply very lightly with your fingers to the top layer of your hair. It's a trick we picked up backstage recently, and it's the secret to getting an all-over sheen on fine hair, which can get weighed down under heavy sprays. DD: I will try this technique. My favorite is Warren Tricomi's Cut & Shine Spray. Oh how it highlights my highlights, but admittedly, can be too heavy handed straight from the pump.
4) Leave your wet hair in your "towel turban" up until the second you're ready to style or blow-dry. This prevents frizz from popping up. DD: I'll try it, but usually I add product and go about some other beauty maintenance while allowing some air dry time, before beating my hair into submission.
5) Apply gel to your hair part, where the light hits your strands. This creates an intense sheen right at the spot where you want it—without having to gunk up the rest of your hair. DD: Never thought of this. Will test drive
6) Spot-treat dry hair throughout the day with shine-enhancing sheets like Kerastase Smoothing Carre Lissant Smoothing Sheets ($28, kerastase-usa.com). Swipe them over wayward strands and you'll be left with zero flyaways. DD: I recently reviewed Giovanni Hair Towelettes. Same concept at a fraction of the cost. 
7) Consider co-washing a.k.a. "conditioner washing." Conditioning rinses are great for shiny hair because they don't contain sulfates, the harsh ingredients in most shampoos that strip your strands of its natural oils. Try: Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash Conditioner ($5.99,drugstore.com). DD: "Co-washing" is a new one for me...I'll bite and report back at some point. For now my Express Brazilian Treatment requires Keratin Shampoo.
8) Slap on a mask. A conditioning treatment in your next shower will help smooth out rough areas and give your hair the TLC it needs to stay its very shiniest. One of our go-tos: It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask ($40, ulta.com). DD: L'Oreal's Nature Masque Richesse and Neutrogena Triple Moisture Mask are two good ones to try. My favorite method is to heat some up in the Microwave for about 12 seconds, apply it to my hair, and leave it on for 15 minutes before shampooing it out. Skip additional conditioner. Who wants to stand in the shower buck naked and freezing, while doing as directed.
