    Default another way of making hair shine

    I was reading an article today about hair, for a change! and it was saying to make your hair shine, tie a silk or satin scarf around a BBB and go over your hair with it, it said it makes hair shine like glass.

    I am going to try this and will get back to you all. Just thought id share this interesting method with you all.

    That's interesting, I'll be interested to know how it works. I have heard that rubbing hair with silk makes it shiny, but then that was in a cheap romance novel, so ya know, I didn't really take it seriously..... Would be great if it works, I have silk scarves I don't do anything with.

    Rubbing silk over the hair to make it shine is one i've heard of quite a few times.....especially in those kind of "olden days" haircare guides.
    I've not tried it because i always forget to get some silk.....but i should. I think there was a thread a couple of years ago actually.....so yes, i'd be interested in how it works out for you.

    Either a stupid question here or I'm just tired. What is a BBB?

    This picture was taken January 15 of last year, and posted in my hair journal then. The hair on the left was polished with a piece of silk. Don't put any significance in the seeming extra curl on the silked hair.
