Shine Enhancing Styling Products

What they do:

  • Shine enhancing styling products create a glossy finish and make color more vibrant.

Why you need a shine enhancer:

  • Not all hair is naturally shiny. Blonde doesn’t show shine as well as brunette, while straight hair reflects light better than curly hair.

How to use shine enhancing products:

  • When using shine-enhancers, aka shine sprays or glossifiers, it’s best to go light—just a quick mist or a few drops will do. Otherwise, hair will end up greasy and weighed down. You can also enhance shine with the right shampoos and glazes.
