The Best Hair Shine Sprays and How to Use Them

The product you didn't know you needed... until now. 

Have you ever tried to finish your style with a healthy and glossy-looking shine where you end up with your feeling hair weighed down or clumped together? We’ve been there, done that… and eventually learned that we were using the wrong hair care products for all the wrong reasons. To achieve weightless and shiny locks, this is where a shine spray for hair comes in.

Before we dive into which product you should be using for shiny (not greasy) and beautiful locks, let’s just say this: If you prefer hair with a matte finish that is totally okay; we’re not at all suggesting that you must finish your hair with a shiny look! After all, matte hairstyles are totally in these days. However, if you’re looking for a boost of shine so your hair doesn’t look or feel dry or lifeless (unless that, too, is intentional), we’ve got some of the best hair shine sprays to try on your hair. Read on to learn about some of top picks and to get inspired:

1. Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray

Whenever you’re wearing a hairstyle that calls for shine, spray it on. This can be anything from Hollywood curls to sleek wet-looking updos. When to apply a shine spray on your hair depends on the type of spray you’re using. If you’re using a shine spray for hair that’s not labeled as a finishing spray, you can apply it your hair as a pre-styler. If it’s a hairspray, it should be the very last step of your hair styling routine.

On the other hand, you may need a shine spray when using heat styling tools. Heat-styling leaves you with beautiful straight or curly styles but it can also be extremely drying to your hair if you don’t employ the right hair products into your styling routine. A shine spray is ideal for restoring the shiny look of your hair. We love Dove Style + Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray for exactly this purpose.

2. Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hair Spray

Use Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hair Spray whenever you’re in the mood for super shiny hair with a strong hold. This shine hairspray is perfect for hairstyles like sleek updos. To use it on your hair, simply hold the can 8-10 inches away from your hair and spray all over your hair. This hairspray will leave you with humidity-resistant hair, lots of shine, and a hairstyle that’s long-lasting.
