Herbal Essence just came out with a new product in July that is solely about introducing shine back into your hair. They sent some my way to try out and here is what I thought:
I wasn’t sure what to expect with All That Shine before I received it. I thought it was simply going to be a tube of conditioner similar to Clairol’s Nice’n Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss. However, the set up is just as if you were going to dye your hair–gloves, formula in one bottle and the mix in another. You combine the liquid formula with the shine formula in one bottle, shake and then apply root to tip (without rubbing it into your scalp) and completely saturate your hair. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, wet your hair and lather, rinse and then apply the Shine Amplifying Conditioner allowing it to absorb for 2 minutes. You then rinse that out and blow dry your hair as usual. The Amplifying Conditioner is to be substituted in place of your normal conditioner once a week for six weeks. The shine to your hair from All That Shine is supposed to last for 6-8 weeks.
After using it, my hair is definitely noticeably shiner and softer. There wasn’t a “dye” fragrance to the kit, it actually smelled like fruit, as did the Amplifying Conditioner. All That Shine will look like there is color to it in the bottle, but it is a clear gloss that can be applied on red, blonde and brunette hair alike.
All That Shine is available at Wal-Mart.
