6 ways to tweak your routine for silky-smooth hair

Getting smooth, silky hair isn’t as hard as you might think. It doesn’t have to take hours in front of a mirror, or endless money on products: sometimes it’s as easy as a slight adjustment to your routine. We can prove it – here are six little tricks you can use on your quest to discover how to get smooth hair.

  • 1

    All in the ingredients.

    So you want to know how to get silky hair? The key is in finding ultra-nourishing formulas full of hydrating ingredients your hair will love. Oil has been used for years as a treatment to help nourish rough, coarse hair – try our Dove Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Shampoo to see if you agree

    Stick to a range.

    When picking your products, try to use a shampoo and conditioner from the same range for the best soft and smooth hair results, like Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. They’re always specially crafted to work in tandem, to leave hair looking and feeling its best

    Leave-in products.

    One of the best secrets of how to get silky-smooth hair is a deeply caring one: add extra nourishment with a mask. Our Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Mask helps to penetrate into the strands of your hair for added nourishment. Comb the mask through your hair, wrap your strands up in a towel, and leave for as long as you can – up to half an hour is good – before washing as usual

    Blow-drying.

    Blow-drying is key when looking for the answer to how to make hair silky, and it’s all in the technique. For a high-shine finish, direct the nozzle downwards from root to tip while pulling your hair over a brush, section by section, either keeping it straight or creating soft waves – it will help close and seal the cuticles down, meaning the hair’s surface is smoother and can reflect more light, for a beautifully radiant, silky hair finish

    Blow-drying curls.

    The exception? Curly hair – curls are most shiny and defined when left to dry naturally. But if you’re short on time, using a diffuser with your dryer will soften the airflow and prevent frizz. For extra-defined and frizz-free curls, use our Curls Defining Mousse

    Silk pillowcases.

    It might not be the first stop on your hunt for silky hair, but switching up your pillowcase could help. The smooth surface of a silk pillowcase helps minimize friction for smoother, shinier looking hair in the morning
