I’m so excited to announce this giveaway today! Are you ready?

The lovely people over at Oribe generously sent over their new product, Shine, for me to test out. It’s a finishing spray infused with argan oil and lemongrass, and it’s a game changer ladies and gentlemen. I’m a long time believer in shine sprays to keep my long (and likely dry) ends looking shiny and healthy, and this is the best I’ve ever used. It applies evenly and is fine like a mist, so it doesn’t weigh down your hair. A little goes a long way so the bottle will last you a long time, and like every Oribe product, it smells extremely fancy..like heaven really.

The best part, Oribe sent over two extra bottles for me to give away! By all means, leave a comment to enter this giveaway. If you tweet about this giveaway (with a link to this post), you may leave one extra comment with a link to your tweet for another chance to win. I’ll be picking two winners on Friday afternoon!

Thank you Oribe for this Giveaway, and thank you all for entering!

Faking Shine

Now that my hair is finally pretty long again, I’m 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 wouldn’t eat.)

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

Basically I love shine sprays and serums.

Particularly:

Redken Vinyl Glam

This one gives you a spritz. It’s 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. It’s good for any hair type.

I know what you’re 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.
