LONG, luscious locks don't have to cost a fortune in hair care products and salon visits.
In fact, one beauty expert has shared five tips that will make a world of difference in your hair, and they won't cost you anything.
In a video, a beauty influencer named Kelsey Griffin said: "I've tried hundreds, if not literally thousands, of hair products, especially in the past like five years from working at Sephora and now being a beauty content creator…
"But honestly technique is so much more important than what products you are using, so here are five hair tips that I absolutely swear by."
The first tip Griffin shared is to double shampoo your hair every time you wash your hair.
She explained: "Let's say you're using a smoothing shampoo because you have frizzy hair.

"Well, the first time you shampoo…all it's doing is getting all of the s**t out of your hair.
"It’s not actually doing any of the smoothing action that it says it's going to do because the benefits of the shampoo need clean hair to stick to…"
Griffin said the benefits of the shampoo only truly work in the second wash.
ONLY SHAMPOO SCALP
Griffin then advised to only shampoo your scalp and not the ends of your hair.

She explained: "Shampooing your scalp and working up the suds at the top of your head is going to be enough when you rinse out your hair for the suds to clean the ends of your hair."
You may dry out your hair by working the shampoo through your hair length, she added.
SPLIT HAIR IN HALF WHEN RINSING OUT SHAMPOO
When rinsing out your shampoo, you want to make sure you are letting the suds rinse through the bottom portion of your hair, according to Griffin.
She advised splitting your hair into two sections when rinsing out shampoo for the cleanest hair possible.
"Because if you're only rinsing the top all of the shampoo is going to get trapped in this under section of your head, which makes your head feel so much dirtier," said Griffin.
SQUEEZE OUT EXCESS WATER BEFORE USING CONDITIONER
While this tip may seem a bit obvious, many people forget this crucial step when washing their hair.
Griffin said: "After you shampoo, you should be squeezing out as much water as you possibly can out of the ends of your hair before you apply your mask or conditioner…
"It's going to absorb the mask or conditioner so much better if there's not a bunch of water just sitting on top of it and making the product slide off your hair."
FINISH WITH A COLD WATER RINSE

Lastly, Griffin said the secret to insanely shiny hair is cold water.
"If you're a real one, you're going to rinse your hair with ice-cold water and your hair will be the shiniest it has ever been," she added.
