Answer: No!

But find that ACV rinses make my hair shine a little more.
Curl Euphoria Elixir is good for adding shine. I don't know if they changed the ingredients recently (as they are prone to do,) but I use it (sparingly) to add shine, especially when I've done my hair straight.

A little jojoba oil and water mix with your leave-in regimen might help.

Just using a leave in usually gives shine for me since my hair is dark. Abba nourishing conditioner seems to leave a lot of shine.
Curl Keeper adds shine also although it's mostly for frizz.
Clear gels help with shine since ones with color tend to dull my hair somewhat.
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Jessicurl Confident Coils does it on my hair. I noticed it first when I was touching up a spot curl on 2nd day hair with some JCCWS and water.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
I've been using the Glisten To Me mixture in the CG book. It's equal parts of glycerin and water. I spray it into my hands and scrunch into my hair after it's dry or almost dry. Gives some curl enhancement, too .

I haven't used any of the things you listed. I get shine on occasion with some of my regular products but it varies on the weather and 3,000,001 other factors !

With the weather changing (and 3,000,001 other factors ), lately my hair can be frizzy or smooth, dull or shiny...without altering my products or routine. *Sigh* -- I guess I've just gotta be patient and go with the curly flow...
Both Curl Keeper & PM Super Sculpt (used alone, not together) add great shine for me, but you have to use a lot of them. You could also try using a color rinse now and then. I find that it closes the cuticle and produces mega shine for a week or two. In my fotki.com album, the pictures taken in March 2007 show my hair immediately after a colorgloss. They are easy to do at home too with Clairol Radiance from Sally's. HTH

I'm a curly-headed runner, triathlete and foodie! Sweat, chlorine, sun... my hair gets tortured by it daily. It somehow always manages to 'bounce' another day!
