THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
Agave Revitalizing Shine Spray $26
My hair is super thick and coarse and tends to frizz up pretty easily, so I've tried the gamut of hair care products that boost shine, strength, and health. They don't however always match up to their claims and often fall short :/ What I like about this product is that its composed of natural ingredients like Agave Plant Sugars, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Coconut Extract! It doesn't weigh your hair down, but will provide awesome shine!
I like spray this over sections of my hair while flat-ironing and then finish off with a bit more throughout my completed style. The product smells wonderful and can be used in combination with other items in Agave's hair care line like their Restorative Hydrating Mask and the Agave Healing Vapor Iron. If you've been looking for a shine-boosting spray that is sulfate, paraben, & phthalate-free- this is THE product to pick up :)
