Red hair is gorgeous, but it’s even prettier when it has a great shine. Getting your red hair to be sleek and shiny takes effort and the right products. Here are some of our tips for how to get your shiniest hair yet, and the best products to use on your red hair:

How to enhance shine:

Shiny hair is healthy hair. Keeping your red hair healthy is the best way to promote natural shine. Here are a few ways you can help your hair be healthier:

  • Avoid overwashing
  • Get frequent trims
  • Always use heat protection
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Take hair and nail supplements 
  • Use a microfiber towel

Soft Microfiber Hair Towel

When drying your hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.

You can also incorporate products into your hair care routine that will help to promote shine. This includes hair oils, shine-enhancing treatments, glosses, and boar bristle brushes. Ready to add some shine products to your redhead routine? Check out our favorite redhead-approved shine products:
