    I use Carols Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey. Its the only non-silicone product that gives my hair shine.

    Coconut or castor oil on wet hair will give it shine.

    Castor Oil is the best for shine.

    Question first. Is it duller than usual, or is it just naturally non-reflective?

    I ask because I notice my own hair isn't as shiny as I'm used to and I finished looking up the answer not five minutes ago (imagine my surprise when I saw this thread in the new lineup).

    My problem is most likely product build-up. I also have hard water, however, so I think I'm going to try a good chelating shampoo for a full detox. If I works I may incorporate it once or twice a month.

    OT: Does anyone know if Aveda Detox has a trial size? :grin: I'm on restriction from bulk-buying and full-size purchases over $4 unless a trial is not available.

    If your problem is that you know it's naturally non-reflective, I saw someone make a post about broccoli seed oil. I can't speak from experience, but I'm thinking of adding that to my next restock. She said it was like silicone without the bad effects. You might look into that and make a spritz or add it to your leave-in. HTH!

    Henna did it for me, the picture below was taken before any henna treatments. If I could figure out how to change it you'll see the growth progress and shine I've gotten from henna and mn these past 6 weeks...
