What do you guys use to give your hair a nice shiny look without looking like it's greasy! My hair looks dull, no shine!

    I have Deva Mirror Curls which gives incredible shine, and is CG. All it takes is a few drops for my mass of thick, unruly hair.

    I also find KCCC gives me good shine.
    CG since June/09
    3a/b extremely thick, coarse, porous
    Loving AOHR, Biolage Conditioning Balm, KCCC.:glasses8:

    Maybe you need to clarify, to remove build-up from products that you may be using now or used recently. I am no expert on that subject but will say that a lemon/conditioner rinse or ACV rinse help me when my hair starts looking dull.

    For shine, I find that a clear/glossing product, such as Robert Craig Clear works well for me.

    I have fine hair & lately a dash of EVOO rubbed on my hands then lightly scrunched in ends and (lightly) brushed over canopy is working like a charm for me in the lower dews.

    I just bought Jane Carter Nourish and Shine to SOTC with, and it leaves a very nice light sheen on my hair, without feeling greasy. It helps to knock down the frizz, and it's really great as a dry skin/cuticle cream, too. Win-win!
