Faking Shine

Now that my hair is finally pretty long again, Im dealing with dry ends. I have to trim it pretty frequently, or it looks like cotton candy..the bad kind. (the bad kind consists of any kind that you wouldnt eat.)

Anyway, when my hair loses its luster, I turn to artificial luster.

Basically I love shine sprays and serums.


Redken Vinyl Glam

This one gives you a spritz. Its very shiney and light and goes great on dry hair. This is best for medium to thick hair.

Tigi Headrush

This is an aerosol spray and goes on light as air, so it works for any hair type. It works best on air-dried/blow-dried hair.

SachaJuan Shine Serum

This is a pump serum and can be used on wet or dry hair. Its good for any hair type.

I know what youre all thinking. If teasing is the high heels of hair, then spray/serum shines are the bronzers of hair.

If you wont tell, I wont tell.
