Time to Shine


Nothing screams healthy hair as loud as a mane with luster. But it can be a challenge to find a sheen spray that combats dullness without weighing down strands. Don’t fret. We’ve rounded up our faves that are both lightweight and shine-boosting. Plus, they all smell great!

    I bias but I must say the Cantu one is amazing. It does conditions well, gives shine and all without the harsh smell like some oil sheen sprays can get

  • Hmmmm

    All of the Sheen Sprays contain mineral oil. Isn’t that drying for Black hair?

      Not all sheen’s are drying – I use Mizani and I am natural and it works for me. @Binks – I love Cantu too!

      FYI: This site is for all hair types and textures and different products work different on different textures. All these products may not be best for natural hair as they might not work well on relaxed or wigs/weaves. It’s about trying out products and knowing what ingredients work with your hair.

    I rarely do oil sheen anymore cause it ends up on face etc.
    Instead I moisterize my scalp before combing out my set and keep going.
