Q: Is a shine spray the same as oil sheen? Also, how do I use it on my curls to get more shine?

A: Good question. A shine spray may give your curls a similar effect as an oil sheen but sprays are usually lighter and contain healthier oils like the grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil and vitamin E in your Afro Sheen Glow Up Shine Spray. It’s typically meant to be used in the final stage of your styling to add a realistic shine that’s not greasy.

Q: How do I use when styling?

A: You can add in a few spritzes to spiral sets and coils just before setting hair under a hooded dryer. Your shine spray is also perfect to use on your dried two-strand twists before unraveling to prevent frizz and encourage silkiness.

Q: Should I use my shine spray while fingerstyling?

A: If you want a very soft, less-defined fingerstyle, you can spritz the shine spray onto your wet strands. If you want to maintain your hold, we’d suggest using the mist just after your hair is dry.

Q: Can I use the shine spray to seal ends?

A: Yes, you can lightly spritz your ends with water and use your spray to seal. Make sure you’re only sealing ends that have been trimmed properly. You cannot seal split ends.
