MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray
I purchased my MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray 100ml a few months ago from HQHair.com. They were having a sale, and from memory it was 20% off the price of stock items. I was pointed to this sale by Bini from Bini Blog's Beauty, and still don't know whether to hug her for the savings, or to slap her for leading me astray!
I recently posted a YouTube video demonstrating how I use this spray. You can view this video here.
This spray is loaded with Argan oil, which is well known for its moisturising and smoothing properties. The product is only lightly scented, which suits my sensitive scalp. It is important to note that the Glimmer Spray is really marketed for it's 'look good' properties, not it's 'theraputic' properties. If you need serious smoothing or moisture, use the original MoroccanOil product.
I tend to use the Glimmer Spray the day after I wash my hair. It gives me a little pick me up. I don't use it on washing day, because it can leave your hair looking a little oily the next morning. I am trying to stretch washing to every third day, as I am trying to grow my hair and want to keep it in good condition. Most of the time I wash my hair every other day.
The instructions say to lightly mist about a foot from your hair, and then to not over style. The instructions are there for a reason, and with this product they need to be followed! Just one or two sprays is all you need, and then don't fluff, primp, shzoozsh or play with your hair. If you start to mess with it - the hair can start to look less glamourous, and more grungy.
I like this product, and would repurchase - but I don't really NEED it. It's a nice to have.
Until next time....
