Is your hair looking dull? There are so many reasons locks can lose their shine, whether that’s product build-up, color damage, or just everyday wear and tear from your styling routine. But the good news is, there are ways you can restore that fresh-from-the-salon radiance at home. Here are five ways to brighten every type of dull hair – from blonde, to red, to brunette;...

1. Remove Product Build-Up With A Clarifying Shampoo

Did you know? A build-up of residue can actually make your hair look flat and dull. While traditional shampoos are great for removing everyday impurities, a clarifying shampoo is a must for working down deeper to wash away stubborn grime. Try INVIGO Aqua Pure Purifying Shampoo to reveal cleaner, fresher hair that feels light and luminous. Reach for it when you need super-clean hair, then use INVIGO Color Brilliance Color Protection Shampoo for all other washes. It also boosts shine, so locks always appear glossy.

2. Try Applying A Color-Depositing Conditioner

For a more tailored tone touch-up, swap purple shampoo for a color-depositing conditioner. The Color Fresh Mask comes in 10 shades, so you can pick one to suit your hair color. From blondes, to, brunettes, to reds, to bolds, these masks are subtly tinted for a quick color refresh, allowing you to boost brightness from the comfort of your home. All you do is shampoo, then use it in place of your usual conditioner. Smooth it from root to tip or over colored sections, then evenly distribute with a wide-toothed comb. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse it off when you’re ready to reveal your refreshed shade; shiny, vibrant, with not a hint of dullness.

3. Boost Hydration With A Luminous Hair Mask

Healthy, hydrated hair is shiny hair, so make sure you’re indulging in a weekly deep treatment. Use a hair mask that’s infused with nurturing vitamins, which are vital to enhancing radiance. A go-to for a dose of luminosity is the INVIGO Color Brilliance Vibrant Color Mask; a creamy, pampering treatment that’s packed with protective antioxidants to keep colored hair looking shiny. Apply it to towel-dried hair so water doesn’t dilute the effects. Simply shampoo, rinse, blot excess moisture, then massage the mask through mid-lengths and ends, and leave on for 10 minutes. If you’re not sure how much to use, the picture above demonstrates the perfect amount.

4. Apply A Hair Oil Before And After Styling

There’s a reason the Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothing Oil is a cult classic. Enriched with macadamia seed and avocado oils, it tames frizz, makes hair feel silky-soft, and gives a glossy finish – all while remaining weightless. A dullness-ditching essential, it is recommended to apply it to clean, damp hair before styling, and then use half a pump to keep any frizz at bay when hair has been dried and coiffed to perfection.

5. Book In For Regular Trims

No matter how glossy the lengths of your hair are; split ends make every style appear dull. That’s why regular trims are a must to keep locks looking healthy. Book an appointment with HairMNL Studio every six to eight weeks to keep the ends tidy. If you’re trying to grow hair, ask them to follow a technique called ‘dusting’, where they target only split ends without altering the length.
