 I use a shine spray. Eufora has a good one. I spray it on first before any other products.

I made a treatment using eggs, honey and olive oil. It made my hair softer and shinier than the packet  hair mask I used the week before!

I don’t know if you have it where you are, but matrix biolage has a range out called sugar shine – it smells super good and if you use the whole system it works brilliantly. I will say though it isn’t super good for fine, flat, straight hair. Nak aromas smooth range combined with the nak shine mist after blow drying works really well for all kinds of hair and I prefer it over the matrix biolage sugar shine range in all honesty, but it doesn’t smell as nice unfortunately lol.

Salon blowouts are awesome! I don’t think castor oil has been mentioned. I find it works just as well as argan oil. You can sleep in it as PP suggested but I personally prefer to rinse it off before going to bed. I also have a bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 even though I do not color my hair – works a treat. Dark hair also tends to look shinier/glossier – got to do with how light bounces off it!

I think the fresh out of the salon look has a lot to do with blow dry technique. I use high end products at home but am lazy and lack skill when it comes to drying my hair.

I use coconut oil once a month. Heat it up a bit in the microwave then pour it on – doesn’t take much. Leave on for 30 minutes then wash off. Due to the heat of it, and the scalp it, it keeps it penetrating without having to do an overnight. It really gives the shine for the whole time. 

Also, I use the DESIGNLINE Silk Drops Repair & Shine Serum, a tiny bit goes a long way if you are putting ironing or blow drying hair. It’s perfect.–shine-serum.html

That question drives me nuts! I just can’t do at home whatever it is they do at the salon. I even tried using the same shampoo,  no dice.

I did once have rowanberry lotion that made my hair simply gorgeous, but I can’t find it for sale anywhere. 

I think I’m also allergic to something in commercial shampoo. I’ve stopped trying to find one that works and started washing my hair with nicely lathered soap.  Not quite salon level, but it’s much shinier and sheds less.
