Shine Time!

Lauren Salapatek | July 11, 2011 | 12:27 AM

Every client craves shiny hair. If you are looking for some new options on how to actually help your clients achieve the look they want—try recommending any of these Sebastian shine products. When you use all four together, the shine is pretty intense....

Blow drying, flat ironing, curling...using any kind of hot product on your client's hair is a major moisture zapper! That's why using a heat-styling product on the hair is crucial in order to save your clients locks. Sebastian's Trilliant is a great find, that I found recently; it claims to give "triple diamond" shine for a sparkling finish. I tried out this product and unlike some thermal products I've tried, it does NOT weigh down the hair and after using a heating product it locks in the shine pretty nicely.

To use this product and to activate the Trilliant complex, you need to shake the bottle first, and then spray on dry hair before using hot tools. For extra shine, I found that adding an extra layer tops off the look.

Sunburn on skin can also happen to your hair too—just in a different form. If your clients are sun-lovers their hair may be steadily getting more brittle by the day. Recommend a UV-protection hair product like Sebastian Halo Mist. It's a UV filter, weightless spray that ADDS SHINE too! I like to think of it as an invisible hat...

So what does this spray actually do to hair? Not only does it make highlights pop (at least for my highlights it did,) it provides a silky feel, and a glossy finish. Don't use TOO much though or it will weigh the hair down.

If you're clients are looking for a product that's going to give them shine but help against the humidity, I would recommend the Sebastian Liquid Gloss. Just like it reads, this makes the hair glossy, shiny and it dries pretty quickly. Add a couple drops to wet hair, style and BAM you're good to go.

The final product from this shine line is Sebastian Shine Define. This is the ultimate versatile hair spray, and it helps create contoured smooth texture with flexible hold and shine. It's best when use with hot tools.

So what are you waiting for? Get your shine on!
