My hair is thick and long and it is something between wavy and straight, so I need to style my hair if I want it to look anything like shiny. I can get my hair to look pretty shiny with just a leave in conditioner, but if I want more shine I need a good product to take care of it. I tried this L'Oreal Ever Style Smooth & Shine Serum a few weeks ago for the first time and every since then I am hooked. I like to spray a good amount o the serum to my hair after a wash it and towel dry it, then I give my hair a quick massage and let the serum sit for about 5 - 10 minutes before I start to blow dry it and style it as normal. When I want to curl my hair, I spray a small amount of the serum right on my curls and then finish it with a small spray of extra hold hair spray. Made without alcohol and includes some natural ingredients which is great. It feels smooth and never greasy.
This serum is very affordable, you get what you pay for and a little goes a long way.
