Didn't leave my hair noticeably shinier, and it definitely did not have enough frizz-fighting power for my curls. Wasn't the worst product I've ever tried, but certainly not the best, either.

This makes my hair very soft, and I like the light reflecting "particles" it has in it. Not glittery at all and leaves my hair with a soft sheen. I'm using this product in tandum with the shampoo and conditoner from the same line for Brunettes. I'll repurchase them all again when I run out!

I didn't notice a difference at first after using this (although it does make my hair soft and manageable) but have received tons of compliments since I started using it. I also use the conditioner, shampoo and occasionally the finishing creme. They all smell great.

I find that this product really does add shine to my hair. It comes in a generous bottle and keeps down stray hairs. I would definitely re-purchase this product again.

I really like this. It does the exact same thing that my old product V05 Straight Hair does (softens and smooths hair, as well as protects it from blowdrying), except it adds LOTS of shine too! It has teeny particles of glitter, but you can't really see them in your hair. I'm not sure what the glitter is for, actually.

This stuff is awesome! I have used a lot of shine serums and this one is the best so far. The other shine products gave me fake looking shine for some reason. Not this stuff tho, it gave me super natural looking shine. I was very impressed. I even made sure that I kept the receipt because I've tried so many products that have sucked and thought that I would probably have to return this, but I think this one's a keeper! Love it!

The first ten ingredients of this are the same as Frieda's Sheer Blonde Spotlight Detangler. If you have that, you don't need this. Check there for more feedback.

I have to say that I love this more than the Spotlight! At first glance it looks and feels very similar. However, there are specks of gold in this that wasn't in the Spotlight. This was also thicker than the Spotlight, which works wonders for my thick hair. I used this in conjunction with the Brilliant Brunette Straightening balm. My hair is very soft and manageable right now. Definitely will repurchase!

This is a clear gloss that has extremely tiny pieces of shimmer in it. You have to look really closely to see them! You can use this on "soaking wet hair" per the directions, which I hate and don't do. But you can also use it (as the directions state) on dry hair to give it gloss at the end of styling. This method works great for me, as I don't like to put anything on my hair when it's "soaking wet". This product is for natural brunettes, dyed hair or highlighed hair.

It does brighten up my highlights some, and does give my hair some shine. I got this on sale at Rite Aid on sale (2 for $9), and I do like what I got for my money.
