Get Your Shine On: Shine-Enhancing Hair Products


The last time we heard anyone say they didn’t want shiny hair was…never. Shiny hair equals healthy hair, it makes us look better, thus we feel better. Unfortunately, with everyday stress, poor eating habits, illness, heat styling and hair coloring, lack-luster tresses can be the result. We have tested many shine-enhancing products and put together a list of our favorites. Get ready to get your shine on…




Citre Shine Shine Miracle Highly Laminating Shampoo

For hair that looks shiny and glossy, start in the shower. this shampoo contains citrus extracts, essential vitamins and minerals to instill a healthy looking shine without stripping away the essential oils from your hair. We love the fresh lemon scent that is more fresh squeezed lemons and less Pine-Sol. $3.99,

Our staple for adding luster and shine is one of Fekkai’s best-selling products. We love the light consistency that still manages to give even the thirstiest hair the drink it so desires. From $23,





Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray

For Shine that resists frizz, we reach for this. Fruit micro-waxes seal in shine without feeling greasy or leaving hair feeling weighed down. No wonder it’s a favorite of celeb stylist David Evangelista, who mists this on his clients’ hair before they head out the door. $4.29,
