Amika Shine Spray

Hi everyone! I am lucky enough to have President's Day off today so I am excited. I was excited to get some swatching done, but I guess I should have done more yesterday because it's freekin' snowing, AGAIN! I hate it! Yucky!!! But on another note I got a new camera and I am so excited to play with it. It has a "super macro" setting so it should take amazing nail photos. My husband got it for me for Valentine's Day! I love it! So the next few photos prob won't be from the new camera but soon I will be exclusively using it! So on to today's review: 

Today I am reviewing Amika Shine Spray which is an oil based hair product. It has Sea Buckthorn oil, which is becoming more and more popular in beauty products of late and Moroccan Argan Oil which is also a hot product right now.  Here's what the company has to say about it:

This product smells so good. I think it's the Argan Oil because the Morccon Argan Oil products my salon uses smells similar. It's really pretty and fruity/fresh.

If you use the proper amount (more on that later) it does help when styling your hair. I found if I didn't use too much I was able to blow dry it easier and the ends would curl in or out, however I directed them better than if I didn't use any product. 

A little goes a long way! I'd suggest spraying this product into your hands and smoothing it onto your hair. If you spray it directly into your hair you run the risk of saturating some spots of your hair with product making it look greasy, after all, it is an oil.  So be careful. The nozzle can be hard to control, it can come out in a wide spray or pretty narrow direct spray. So stick to placing it in your hands first. 

I do like the shine that the proper amount of this stuff leaves in my hair. It does leave your hair looking "done" after styling. It controls static electricity fly aways and frizz well.  So you're left with smooth styled hair which is the look we all go for I am sure.

Amika Shine Spray can be purchased at for $24.  I think the price is slightly high but it's natural and the bottle is HUGE; 3.38 fl. oz.  Like I said, a little goes a long way so it will last a long long time.  

Overall I think if  you're looking to splurge on  a high end hair product this is a really nice oil.  The smell alone makes me happy! 

Have you tried Amika Shine Spray? What do you think of it? Have you tried any other Sea Buckthorn or Argan oil products? I'd love to hear recommendations!
