5 things to stop doing if you want glass hair (and what to do instead)

a girl with glass hair

If you’re striving for shiny hair, you’re not alone. Glossy, sleek and perfectly smooth strands are the style of the moment and the epitome of the clean girl, quiet luxury trend. Often referred to as ‘glass hair’, it’s a coveted look that requires both the right products and habits to achieve.

To get glass hair, you need to boost and support your hair’s health and condition – forming new healthy hair habits and kicking ones to the curb that don’t support your hair, because healthy hair is shiny, glossy hair.There are a few common things you might be doing unknowingly that could be hindering your journey to healthy glass hair.

But first, there is one thing you should be doing to create glass hair: supercharging your shine with the NEW Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray. This intense shine spray features a micro-shine complex, thanks to pearl extract and sunflower oil, to create vivid shine and smoothness. Its heat-activated technology shields every strand from moisture and humidity for up to 72 hours to keep it sleek, and it offers a heat shield up to 450° so you can use heat tools freely, knowing the health of your hair is protected.

Use it while avoiding these dullness-creating hair habits and you’ll be embracing the glass hair aesthetic in no time…

Habit to avoid: not supporting bleached hair

Bleach is a top culprit when it comes to dulling hair’s shine, as it can make your hair weaker and more prone to breakage. All is not lost, though: you don’t have to skip your regular highlights to get glass hair. Nexxus Keraphix Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner heal signs of damage while creating strength, especially when hair health is compromised by bleach or heavy chemical processing. The line has an exclusive PROTEINFUSION blend with Keratin Protein and Black Rice, both rich in protein and nutrients known to provide softness and nourish even severely damaged hair. It will help repair and improve the health of hair, creating that visible shine.

Habit to avoid: not protecting your hair from heat

Next up on the dull hair hitlist is overusing heat styling tools. Excessively using straighteners, curling irons and blow dryers can strip hair of its moisture, leading to dryness, frizz and damage. Embracing heat-free styling methods as often as is realistic is a good idea, and always use tools on the lowest temperature needed. Most importantly, though, make sure you’re always using heat protection before styling. All Nexxus styling products include the STYLEPROTECT technology, which increases the lasting power of your style while protecting hair from damage from heat tools (as well as any other hair stressors). When you’re creating glass hair, nothing compares to the Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray for long-lasting shine.

Habit to avoid: Skipping regular trims

Neglecting regular haircuts leads to split ends and an overall lack of hair health, making it harder to get an all-natural shine. Well-maintained hair is more likely to reflect light and appear shinier, so it’s worth scheduling regular trims every 6-8 weeks to help promote healthy hair growth and encourage your hair’s natural shine to come through.

Habit to avoid: Using the wrong products for your hair

Harsh shampoos with sulfates and other aggressive ingredients can strip your hair of natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to breakage – especially if you regularly color your hair. Instead, choose sulfate-free formulas to gently cleanse, and always finish with hydration, like Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, to keep hair nourished and smooth.

Habit to avoid: Ignoring your scalp health

Neglecting your scalp health can lead to ongoing issues like dandruff, itchiness and overall dullness. By incorporating a detoxifying product like Nexxus Clean & Pure Scalp Scrub you will help rebalance the scalp while stimulating blood flow. It’ll also help remove product build-up and encourage a clean, healthy environment for healthy, shiny hair growth.
