I need shine!!!!!! Help!!!!!!

I finally got the frizz under control but my hair looks DULL! No shine. I'm using Deva no poo, one c., ck, recoil, then arcangell. I think I have 3a or b hair, very course and thick. Can anyone tell me what to do for some shine? Thanks
You can do a honey rinse, that always helps me with shine. After you've conditioned and rinsed out, you just take about a cup or two of cold water and squirt about 1 tbs of honey in it, shake it up until the honey dissolves (use a cup/container with a lid) and then pour it all over your hair. Good for curl-boosting too. Or you can get some glycerin from the store and make your own shine spray, but go easy on it because it can make your hair look greasy if you use too much.

Jane Carter's noursih and shine when used as a pomade will give you tons of shine.


If you're using no poo with the devacurl conditioner make sure that A cone is coming off your hair well and it doesn't feel coated. The low poo is actually made to get that off. Some don't have a problem with it but some do.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Jojoba oil.
absolutely.
Its a superlight oil and you just put a drop in your hands then smooth it on your hair, it moisturies and gives incredible shine. Just dont put it on your roots, it can sometimes look greasdy when I do that.

I bet it's shinier than you think! Take a mirror outside and go look at it in the sunlight.

I'm sure it's beautiful.

Frizz Happens!


my Fotki hair journey/experiment diary PW is brio (and I really need to update it!)

3A hair; coloring with henna/indigo since July 2009; normally follow the CG method. Still searching for my HG products!

For me I found quick fixes for shine were the honey rinse lush recommended (and i loved at first but eventually it overconditioned my hair). So in general by using a good conditioner consistently it has increased my shine a lot!

And, if you can use it, an ionic diffuser really helps my shine! I had a cheap store-brand ionic hair drier that helped some, but then I got a Remington professional ionic for my christmas and the shine from that is amazing! plus no frizz! Or if you air dry, buy a negative ioniser for the room (about 25 online) and if you can, sit in front of it for the first 2 hours of drying. I have mine on my desk when i'm in front of the computer and have it blasting straight at me - again, it really helps with shine

cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
condition: Aussie 3MM. Jessicurl Aloeba.
style: B2Basics GreenTeaGel. T&G Curl Balm. JCarter Nourish&Shine.
