Start with the Cleaning
The hair loses 70 % of its shine due to improper maintenance. The unsuitable shampoo, chlorinated water and bad quality cosmetic tools accumulate in hair flakes.
In order to recover your hair, you will have to clean it deeply. The therapeutic shampoo will penetrate deep into the hair structure and clean it of all the dirt, the mask will nourish it with the substances needed, and the conditioner will smooth its structure. The dying is multiple times more effective after this procedure and color will last much longer.
Choose a shampoo for everyday use with proteins and polymers. These components form a coverage over the hair and make it thicker. When shaping your hair, use hair spray for volume. It will cover your hair with a layer and will protect it from drying.
Shampoos containing silk amino acids will make your hair soft and will recover the damaged hair structure. Lecithin is vital for restoring the hair texture. When shaping your hairstyle, use gels and creams for shine.
Make yourself a massage
The hair loves warmth. The massage on wet hair will improve the blood supply of the scalp and will facilitate the penetrating of nourishing substances to the hair. Make the massage with your finger tips, with circular movements and always toward the neck – from the neck up, from the ears up and back and from the forehead and the temple back. After the massage, apply a mask or conditioner and put on a shower cap for 10-15 min. Rinse the conditioner with warm water.
Make a mask

Dry your hair right
Wrap a towel around your head and twist the end. The towel will absorb the excess water without damaging the hair structure. If your hair is long or with middle length, then stay with the towel for 20-25 minutes, and if your hair is short – 10-15 minutes. After that comb using a comb with wide teeth.
Dry your hair with a hairdryer ionization mode and certainly finish drying in cold mode. This will cool your hair and make it soft and vivid. Be careful! Never dry your hair completely, turn off the hair-dryer when you can still feel the wet when touching your hair.

First, the lower strands are dried, then the pins are taken off one by one and the upper strands are dried. Then apply a fixing agent and then again divide your hair to strands.
