As promised, here is another bargain item that is curly hair approved: Citri Shine Color Prism Glossing Gelle, $4 at drugstores. This isn’t your traditional shine serum or oil. It’s actually a light gel consistency that leaves your curls shiny with nada de grasa! I tried this on my damp hair first and then on dry hair, and got non-crunchy, polished results each time. I actually found it easier to apply than oil serums because it doesn’t get sticky or greasy on hands.
When you look at the gel, it has the smallest particles of glitter (very tiny, not like '80s hair glitter) that coats hair to give it that all-over glow. The formula also has natural citrus waxes that are meant to make your color look more vibrant. And the fresh orange scent lasted throughout the day on my hair. Even better, it didn’t weigh down my curls at all. What type of shine enhancer do you use?
