I was looking forward to testing this treatment, although unfortunately I was left disappointed as it didn’t seem to work at all on my hair. Shine On Original claims to be a protein rich, conditioning hair glaze that gives hair lustrous shine without the need for cuticle coating serums, sprays or colour change. It contains a unique ‘diamond’ clear molecule for reflective vitality and enriched hair lustre, using ultra kind oxidation technology to trap and seal the diamond molecules inside the hair which should give continued shine for up to 24 washes.
And it also claims to be suitable for all hair types and textures including natural and colour treated hair. My hair is dry and coloured, so usually takes treatments quite well because it is porous.
The instructions for using this treatment were quite complicated in my opinion. There were lots of steps, which I followed very carefully. It claims to only take 20 minutes to apply and develop, even though it suggests leaving it in for 20 minutes, and applying takes a long time. You had to start by wetting your hair, and then you apply the cleansing treatment. Then you rinse it out. Then you apply it again. Then you rinse it out, then you mix the developer cream and the collagen shine cream, and then you apply that, and leave it in for 20 minutes, then rinse for at least 5 minutes to get it out. So after the long drawn out process I was looking forward to checking out my new hair as shiney as Jessie J’s.
As you can see (excuse my dressing gown!), there’s no difference in my hair, apart from the fact it’s been washed. I also had to apply some of my own Aussie deep conditioner to my hair afterwards because it was so dry.
Overall I am very disappointed, but maybe it just doesn’t work well on my hair. I would be very interested to hear what other people have to say about this product and if it worked well on them, and if they could tell a difference. It retails for £12.99 from Boots.
