Shiny, Healthy-Looking Hair

I have always wanted a shine spray, but never bought one because it's not a necessity. I went to TJMaxx one day and found this on clearance for $5 so I scooped it up! It retails for around $14.50, so $5 was such a great deal.

This product claims to help strengthen hair and protect against heat styling. It also says that it "interlocks" into your hair to build resilience and improve moisture and shine. I usually use it as a finishing spray, so I can't say if it actually does any of that. I will say that I wouldn't rely on this product as your main source of heat protectant simply because that's not it's main purpose and it probably won't do as good of a job as something specifically formulated to protect against heat styling.

CHI also claims that this product is weightless, so it won't weigh your hair down, which I agree with. It is just a top coat, basically, so whatever your hair looked like before you applied it, it's going to look the same afterwards, just nice and shiny. 

A couple more claims are that it helps mend split ends and eliminate frizz. I haven't noticed any mending of my split ends, but I don't really count that against it even though it's a claim. I bought it to make my hair shiny and that's what it does. As far as eliminating frizz, if you have hair that doesn't get too frizzy, you could probably use this as a hairspray as well. My hair, however, gets really frizzy at any sign of humidity so I like to use a regular hairspray first, and spray this on after.



I tried to get more pictures to show you the effect, but it's kind of difficult to get it to show up in pictures. Hopefully though, you can see here how much shine it adds. 

One thing to note is the scent. It has a very heavy floral scent. I'm talking, skip your perfume for the day, because you're going to smell like this, heavy. I like the smell and whenever I use this, my boyfriend comments on how good I smell, so it's approved by at least one other person!

It says you can use this product while your hair is wet, probably more for the heat protecting/trying to build resilience and moisture, but I didn't notice any shine when I did that, so I never use it like that anymore.

Overall, I love this product. I bought it because I wanted a shine spray to make my hair glossy and healthy looking and that's exactly what I get from it. I tend to have dry hair, that gets broken at the ends because I have to use heat to get it to look any kind of presentable, and this really helps to make it look healthier than it really is.

If you see this, I say give it a shot! I haven't tried any cheaper alternatives, so maybe you could get a more inexpensive product that achieves the same results, but I would repurchase this at full price when mine runs out because I like it that much.
