The Best Shine Enhancing Products

6

I simply can’t narrow this category down to one product. The more, the merrier, eh? (I’m focusing on shine-enhancing finishing products, as in the last step of your styling process.)

If you’ve read Hair Thursday for awhile, you probably know that Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream is one of my very faves. I think I’ve mentioned this cream eleventy billion times on this website. Well, here goes eleventy billion and one. I LOVE THIS STUFF. Smells great, lasts forever, and makes my hair super soft and supple.

Redken Mineral Elixir Smoothing Oil is a newcomer on the market that I’ve been using for the past week. Described as “a glistening shine spray that provides very light conditioning and control with intense frizz-fighting power,” it is quickly becoming a staple. I’m a huge fan of the aerosol spray because you can lightly mist all over your hair and then brush/finger through for ultra shiny tresses. (As with any shine enhancer, use a light hand or else you run the risk of looking like you haven’t seen a shower since ’92.)

In my humble opinion, as a finishing product, Moroccan Oil doesn’t beat FF Glossing Cream. However, using it as a treatment (applying to damp hair) does wonders for shine and conditioning, and it definitely wins for best sultry scent. It smells like, well, what I would imagine a Moroccan night to smell like. (Okay, I really don’t know what that means.)

Last, but certainly not least, Cutler Definition Creme for Texture and Shine rocks the casbah. It smells clean and fresh, smooths flyaways and gives me beautiful shine without any greasy residue. Holla!

  1. Kearastase Oleo Relax Serum is great, too – if used sparingly.

    Never heard of the cutlet creme, Ill have to give that a shot

  3. Thanks for these recommendations, I’m currently using Lifetex from Wella and L’Oreal Professionel Liss control serum. I like the Lifetex because it protects my ends, it’s like a treatment and the Liss control because is a 24h anti-frizz serum and give my hair a natural shine.

  4. So while I was in Puerto Rico, my friend/stylist brought her Moroccan Oil – on the last day (after salt, chlorine, and a LOT of teasing), I used a bit of this on my damp hair before I used an FHI blow dryer, and my hair looked almost as good as when I get a professional blowout in her salon. A little more at the end to add some extra shine, and my hair was fabulous!

    Yeah, I think that means I’ve talked myself into the Moroccan Oil and a new blowdryer. :)

  5. I’m not using any shine-enhancing finishing products! This list is very useful! I have long, fine, not too wavy, with some volume and a few highlighted hair. Actually, my hair is breaking a lot and has split ends. I’m planning to buy some Redken products (like Extreme line). Good to the Real Control Mineral Elixir. I’ll try it! Thanks!

    p.s.: I’m from Brazil…so sorry for the bad english! Loooove Hair Thursday!
