Lighter, softer, shinier hair...?

I hate my hair. It's light brown, coarse, almost dullish (the brown part), with natural blonde streeks. It's not that it's ugly, people tell me it's like fur and healthy, I just hate it. Is there anything I can do to make it shine more? Make it really soft? I've been using garnier sleek and shine, it makes it pretty soft, which I like, but not shinier at all. I've heard flaxseed oil, digesting it can do that? Note that I'm a boy, I wouldn't be caught dead being seen in some hair stylist place getting some weird hair treatment. I'd love to grow it out and not have to worry about it blowing in the wind and staying like it always is, stiff. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Re: Lighter, softer, shinier hair...?

You can always use Apple Cider Vinegar. Its basically a cleanser, that removes build up from your water, and shampoo. All you do it just rinse it through your hair, and then wash it as normal.

Using the same shampoo over and over again can bog down your hair, as can harder water, so this just gets all that junk out of your hair without being too harsh.

Its really a miracle worker.
