You can also try some herbs to get soft and shiny hair. Mix around one tablespoon of any of these herbs in boiling water. There are different herbs for different hair types, if you have dry hair then use chamomile nettle and elder flower. If you have oily hair then use peppermint, lemon peel or lemon grass.

If you want an instant shine in your hair then mix the juice of one fresh orange juice and add one tablespoon of honey and a few drops of sandalwood oil and use it as an after shampoo rinse. The other recipe to get that shine is to beat two eggs in a tablespoon of milk and apply it on the hair and rinse it after five to seven minutes.
Vinegar in the final rinse of the hair can be a very useful product in reducing the build up of hair products on hair that can lead to dull hair. It helps in closing the cuticles and also helps in restoring the natural pH balance of the scalp. Cider vinegar is better than the synthetic vinegar. This is known to have excellent results.
