If you didn’t read our blog about AlfaParf Milano when it arrived at Oz Hair, you’ve definitely been missing out. Now we’re here to talk about the Semi Di Lino Diamond range and how to get shiny hair in only 3 steps.
We’ll forgive you if you haven’t heard of this Italian hair care brand. For over 35 years, Alfaparf Milano have been creating products that are dedicated to salon professionals. They take a lot of pride in creating unique formulas, testing and improving them before even starting production. So you know you’re getting the good stuff.
What you should know about the Semi Di Lino range is that they all contain active ingredients that are working to repair your hair from within. Alfaparf’s groundbreaking addition to haircare is Urban Defence Pro - a multi-function biotechnological complex that protects against stress from pollutants. This plays a big part in why the Diamond range is so good - perfect for repairing your hair but gentle enough for everyday use as well.
Keep reading as we breakdown the incredible Diamond hair care routine that will give you that shiny glossy hair.
How to get shiny hair: A breakdown
Diamond Illuminating Low Shampoo
We should all know by now the importance of a good shampoo and conditioner. It can really change the way your hair looks physically and should also be acting to repair it from within. And one of the biggest reasons for dull hair is due to pollution in the air as well as product build up. So sometimes a clarifying shampoo is necessary.
The Diamond Illuminating Low Shampoo does this job pretty well. It is marketed for ‘normal’ hair but is gentle enough to use on coloured hair too thanks to the Color Fix Complex - a UV filter and antioxidant that helps prolong your hair colour. It also contains that Urban Defence Pro we talked about earlier to act as a anti-pollution shield. Plus, it’s sulphate and paraben-free!
However, the real key on how to get shiny hair with this shampoo lies with Alfaparf’s unique Shine Fix Complex - a flaxseed extract that releases shine from the roots to the end for 24 hours. It’s like a brightening power that instantly illuminates the hair.
How to use:
Like most other shampoos, simply lather a small amount of shampoo into your plans and work into your roots. Rinse out and move onto conditioner.
Diamond Illuminating Mask
Did we skip a step, we hear you saying… Well, we figured that shampoo automatically means you need to use conditioner - and it’s probably good to go with the complementing Diamond Low Conditioner as well. But we just couldn’t wait to tell you about this hair mask. We love a good hair treatment - we even wrote about how much we love them. It’s such a small addition to your routine but will almost guarantee healthy hair.
If you missed the memo, a conditioner acts to detangle and soften but a hair mask will often contain more active ingredients that will actually repair your hair. The Diamond Illuminating Mask features the same three unique complexes we’ve mentioned above to double down on fighting pollution, preserving your hair colour and boosting shine.
It also includes omega 3 and 6 extracts which smooths the hair’s structure and helps to repair the fibre. This mask is perfect for every hair type but especially for colour treated hair because it helps repair the damage that the process can cause, and also maintains the intensity and radiance for longer.
How to use:
Similar to other masks, simply coat your hair from ends to roots in a generous amount of the mask after you’ve washed your hair. Leave in for 10 minutes then rinse out.
Diamond Extraordinary All-In-1 Fluid
The final step in our how to get shiny hair routine today might just be our favourite one. Because we can’t get enough of hair treatments, the Diamond Extraordinary All-In-1 Fluid is the cherry on top of the routine. It’s a leave-in treatment fluid - similar to a hair oil - that not only leaves your hair soft and silky but it is perfect for your pre-styling routine. t detangles hair, protects your hair from damaging UVA and UVB rays, prevents split ends and humidity, seals the cuticles and even reduce blow dry time! What more could a gal want?
How to use:
Spray the product into your hair, brush through to the end - we love boar bristle brushes because they perfectly distribute the product and your natural oils - then simply start styling your hair!
