Product Review: Herbal Essences All That Shine

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Herbal Essences
Name: All That Shine
Approx. Price: $10 CAD

Herbal Essences All That Shine is a clear shine booster that promises up to six weeks of healthy-looking, shiny hair. Recommended for almost all types of hair (blondes, brunettes, redheads, natural, colour-treated, highlighted, permed and relaxed), there are a few restrictions but are well-outlined on the package.

Although it's a little more complicated than shampooing your hair, the procedure reminds me a little of hair colouring (you get the gloves, the mixture, the application, the wait, the rinse, the conditioner), except that the product is completely clear.

To Purr About:
- nice "fruity" scent
- easy to follow instructions and easy to apply
- my hair felt softer than usual after drying
- I like that it's suitable for all hair types

Claws Out:
- I didn't notice really any difference in the shine quotiet to my hair (but please see comments below)

Final Comments:
Ok, to be honest, my hair is pretty shiny to begin with (I have that dark, shiny, Asian black hair). I don't colour my hair, straighten it, use much styling product or styling tools, so I don't think it did as much for me as for someone who might have not-so-shiny hair.

That being said, a friend of mine who both colours and straightens her hair regularly bought a bottle a couple of weeks ago and has been raving about how much shinier her hair is this past week after using All That Shine. She has definitely noticed a change in her hair, even with the use of styling products, which often "dull" her hair.

So, I think this is one product that will definitely depend on your own hair (and we know how unique everyone can be in THAT department!). Of course, it's hard to argue with a product that promises shiny hair for over a month, so it may be worth a try if you're looking for that extra light-reflecting boost!

Rating (out of 5):

Be careful of the ingredients. Sillicones tend to build up on the hair, coating it so it looks healthy but is super clogged. Next time, try clear henna. It strenghtens and enables shine.
