Who's tried Dove... Luminizing Mist...?
 
Who's tried the Dove Advanced Color Care Leave-In Luminizing Mist for Lightened or Highlighted Hair?

Every time I'm in Wal-Mart or Target I see this & almost buy it.

It has cyclomethicone in the middle of the ingredients list & dimethiconol near the beginning. The rest of the ingredients are at the Dove site.

I need something for shine, that won't weigh down hair & since I had to decline serums & oils because they're too heavy, I'm hoping this will work.

Liz's loops, I haven't tried Dove's luminizing mist, but I have been sampling some things like what you are looking for. Serums work for a couple hours for me, then leave my hair limp. So I also can't use them. But I found the same issue with spray serums, too. Recently I've been using the Body Shop's Brazil Nut Define & No Frizz. Here's the ingredients:

Water, Cyclomethicone, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Chloride, Bertholletia Exclesa (Brazil Nut) Oil, Dimethicone Copolyol, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, PPG-3 Myristyl Ether, Propylene Glycol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Rosa Canina (Dog Rose) Hips Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Propylparaben, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Oryzanol, Hypericum Perforatum Extract, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Extract, Panax Ginseng (Ginseng) Extract, Tocopherol, Caramel

Even with Cyclomethicone being the second ingredient, I haven't had any issues with it weighing down my hair, even when I use a lot. But everyone's hair is different, so it's hard to say. They have a very liberal 60 day return policy, so it might be worth a try if you're looking for something to make your curls shinier. I use it over Batia & Aleeza gel.

I've used it and I really liked it. It gave a tiny bit of hold, so sometimes I could get away with not using product. I don't remember it giving me any additional shine though.

And a person, like me, would think it'd impart a nice amount of shine because it's so glitter-shiny in the bottle! :?

Unfortunately they're too far a drive for me to make a trip more than a couple times a year. :(
