A hair shine spray is a hair product that is intended to make the hair shine when applied. Used much like a hair spray, shine sprays can also serve other purposes, such as protecting hair against the elements, taming it or repairing hair damage. Natural alternatives to store-bought hair shine sprays can be purchased inexpensively, and these products may be able to be used in other ways on the body.

A hair shine spray can have several functions in addition to making the hair glow. The benefits of using a spray can include the protection of hair against sun damage, split-end repair and frizz control. The latter can help users maintain their hair styling and aid their finishing techniques. Some formulations might soften the hair, making it almost weightless, and others are designed to help the hair stay in place.

Hair shine spray can be formulated using various chemical ingredients. People who are interested in using hair shine sprays might consider healthy formulations to avoid unnecessary exposure to toxic chemicals or chemicals that can harm the environment, such as volatile organic compounds (VoC) or chlorofluorocarbon (CFC). Although many hair shine sprays can be bought in the beauty aisles of stores, alternatives are offered by independent manufacturers. These independent manufacturers often sell hair shine sprays made from natural ingredients such as aloe vera and essential oils. One benefit of buying a natural shine spray is that it often can be used in other ways — as a body fragrance mist or a sunburn remedy, for example.

People who have fine hair might benefit most from the use of a hair shine spray. Those who have thicker or curlier hair might be better off trying a hair shine serum, which can be easily applied to that texture and type of hair. People who use a hair shine spray should be aware that even though it comes in a light, spray form, it still can weigh down the hair if too much is applied. Moderate use of the spray is recommended to protect the volume and styling abilities of the spray.

Hair shine sprays can be purchased at a reasonable cost, or they can be offered at designer prices. Application of a hair shine spray isn't much different from the application of a common hair spray. To use hair shine sprays, users simply spray their hair with the product and style their hair as they desire. Some hair shine sprays can be applied on either wet or dry hair, giving their users freedom with hair styling techniques.

@raynbow- I like hair shine sprays that are made of natural oils, because I also prefer not to use artificial ingredients on my hair. In my opinion, they don't make my hair look oily. If fact, I think that hair shine sprays that contain chemical ingredients look and feel greasier than those made of natural oils.

I also think that the results you will get from using any hair shine spray will depend on the type of hair you have and how much product you use. Obviously, hair shine sprays are more likely to make oily hair appear even more oily.

Regardless of the type of hair you have or the type of hair shine spray you prefer, you should never use too much of this type of hair product. A little bit of of hair shine spray goes along way, and too much will have an adverse effect on almost any person's hair.

I don't like the idea of using chemicals on my hair, but I'm concerned that hair shine sprays that contain essentials oils might make my hair look oily. Does anyone have first-hand knowledge of how this type of product will make your hair look when applied?
