I see too many women walking around with their hair muuuuch more put together and all around SHINY. There has to be some memo that I have not received. 

How do I get my Dull weave to look shiny again?

I had some VC weave that I dyed blue/black which mad it look dull and harsh.  I cowashed with VO5 and it looked shiny and was a lil more manageable.
There is also clear demi-permanent haircolor that you can apply to the hair and whatever color you have it will be more shiny and enhance the color.

wash with a clarifying shampoo (or add a little baking soda to whatever shampoo you have at home).  rinse thoroughly, condition as normal, rinse with apple cider vinegar and COOL water (50/50 mix).

use little to NO product, airdry hair and DO NOT TOUCH while drying.

Jane, which texture is the hair, and is it Chinese  or Indian?  Try using a clarifying poo first off.  Also a shine serum may help (I think Paul Frieda makes one).  Also, as someone has mentioned, there are also the hair color glazes that you can use, semi-perm color, or clear glaze.

After you have your hairstyled spray it ith John Freida shine SPRAY Make sure you get the spray and not the shine drops because they dry up and dont use way too much shine spray because you will look like you have activator in your hair......
