LUSH Shine So Bright is a balm-style split end treatment to improve hair strength and mend split ends. It has a wonderful ingredient list (see below) that contains nourishing coconut oil and shea butter, scented essential oils, and free range eggs that provide a protective protein coat. It does not have the silicone fillers that are so often slipped into other hair oils and treatments. LUSH Shine So Bright is packaged in a compact 0.3 oz. tin and has a solid consistency. The best way to use Shine So Bright is to melt the surface with a finger for a few seconds. After that, it's easy to work through hair or split ends. While a solid formula does require slightly more patience than a liquid product, it's worth the wait. This way, only a small amount of product is picked up and it won't weight down hair or make it greasy. Plus, the amount inside the tin will last quite a long time. Although LUSH Shine So Bright is listed as a split end treatment, it works well to condition and add shine to regular hair, as well as to tame flyaways. A pretty neroli, grapefruit, and rosewood scent is imparted to locks upon use.

The best part for me is that there is No Silicone in this product.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the cheerful sunshine~
Hi Mallard Duck, I really like that too! Silicones do feel nice, but they build up over time and make my hair feel heavy! I'm glad you liked the sun :)Delete
Love your Lush reviews!ReplyDelete
Hi Flyavsted, Thank you so much! I'm glad you like them :)Delete
How did I have no idea about this product? What a wonderful idea! I'm so happy to hear it doesn't add weight to frizz ... I'm always in need of something for quick hair touch-ups.ReplyDelete
Hi Jessica, it is a great idea; I really like how it can conveniently be tossed in a purse!Delete
I have the worst split ends! I'm def. going to try this out.ReplyDelete
Hi Anonymous, Oh no about the split ends, but I hope you like Shine So Bright when you do get to try it!Delete
Ooooh, I really like the portability that this offers. I will have to stop by the next time I'm at the mall to take a look at this. By late in the day, especially on humid days, my locks can use a bit of a boost in the anti-frizz dept! The scent of grapefruit & rosewood is an added bonus!ReplyDelete
Hi Kristi, I think that's the best part too. Most of my hair products are in larger tubs or sprays. I'd love to hear what you think!Delete
hehe i like the sun in the photos! :) i have been interested in this and saw it in store too. i thought it seemed so small, so it is good to know it will last! i definitely want to try everything haircare related that lush makes, haha!ReplyDelete
Very informative! Did you know that you were quoted in the Canadian 2013 Lush Times for this review.ReplyDelete
Hi Maddy, Thanks for the comment! I was asked if I could be quoted--- but didn't realize the Spring 2013 Times was out already. Thanks for letting me know, I'll have to check it out!Delete
Does this really mend split ends or just a coverup until the next hair cut? My ends tend to get dry so I just keep slapping on my jurlique love balm at the ends instead. Be nice to actually use a product that's meant for hair though.ReplyDelete
