Tips to tame frizz and brighten dull hair

Hair shine is about hair strand alignment and cuticle health. The cuticles in damaged hair start to lift and break away, exposing tiny pores in the stands. When light hits your hair these pores scatter it rather than reflecting it – and that’s what makes your hair look dull.

Although your hair can’t repair itself, you can learn how to style it to enhance the natural shine you already have. Avoid extended exposure to extreme heat when drying and styling, and brush gently.

Dyson brushes are made from a Nylon material to help reduce frizz and damage to the hair.
