Shine On last week. It's a leave-in hair treatment that you can put on wet or dry hair (I've been using it on dry) to give it shine and increase volume. I was kind of skeptical - it's similar in texture to another product I'd used a few years ago that made my hair super crunchy, but Shine On really delivers. It gave my hair a ton of body, but it definitely didn't make it sticky, so that won me over right away. In fact, I kind of think it makes my hair a little softer than normal, if that's even possible. It's not a styling product, per se, more like a leave-in conditioner with bonus points, but that's what I like about it. Also, as the name would suggest, it's made with organic ingredients, which is always nice. (Although it does make me laugh to know that I'm willingly putting things like Organic Sea Kelp and Marine Phytoplankton in my hair because they sound like things I should jump in the shower to get rid of after I go to the beach). I liked it enough to add it to my daily beauty routine, so that should tell you something. (Although if I want to keep using it, I'm going to have to figure out some way to fit it in my suitcase to take back to L.A., and said suitcase is already unable to close and only has three quarters of my stuff in it. What on earth did I buy in NJ that's taking up so much space?!)
Shine On retails for $30 and is available at johnmasters.com.
