Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shiny Hair Tutorial

Sarah Jessica Parker is known for her big blonde curls, but since the end of Sex and The City she’s been sporting a sleek, straight hairstyle. To achieve her shiny highlighted hair, it’s important to use a moisturising serum every time you wash your hair and follow it up with a weekly hydrating mask to seal those split ends.

Instructions

1. Treat your hair to a weekly hydrating mask, which is essential for locking in moisturise and is ideal for all hair types. Work the product into your hair from root to tip, then let it sit for 30-60 minutes before washing out with shampoo and lukewarm water.

2. For more frequent hydration, using an oil serum on damp hair. Rub a few drops of product into your fingers, then apply it directly onto the length of your hair. Leave it to air dry naturally, or use a hair dryer on a cool temperature.

3. If you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful method which is also made from all natural ingredients, look no further than coconut oil. Slather it on your hair and massage it into your scalp to take care of any dry patches or dandruff.

4. For blonde or light brown hair like Sarah Jessica Parker, use a silver shampoo at least once a week to counteract those brassy tones. Not only will it leave your hair looking the perfect shade of blonde, but it will also look healthy and shiny after each wash.
