When I was straightening my hair, I used shine sprays but those are off limits now. I'm finding that wearing my hair curly really cuts down on the shine factor. Are there any CG approved products I can use to boost shine?
I find that of all the CG products I've used, flaxseed gel gives my hair the most lustre. I also love how soft my hair is with FSG. I make my own now, but first used Jessicurl Gelebration Spray, then Rockin Ringlets. I find that although people recommend lighter sprays for my ridiculously fine hair, I personally like harder hold gels, which I can use in lower quantities, though I've never found any amount of the homemade FSG seems to weigh my hair down (and it's really easy and cheap to make).
I use Burt's Bees Super Shiny conditioner. It actually does make my hair have a good amount of shine, and the ingredients are all natural so no cones or anything bad. Plus it smells like grapefruit which I love.
I'm finding that oils, especially argan oil, give me lots of shine. Also, using L'Oreal Eversleek (I think)'s leave-in helps a lot!
