Q:I want to use this product when straightening my hair. Would I use it before or after?Asked on 5/8/2014 by Heidi
A:It is best to use Shine So Bright on the ends of your hair after straightening it. It will help to seal the cuticle, mend the ends of the hair, and tame any frizziness at the ends.Answered on 5/9/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Shine so Bright is not a heat protector or a straightening aid, so I don't
know if it would be helpful before straightening. However, it is good to
treat the ends of your hair after they have been damaged. I like to warm
some up between my palms and press it into the ends of my hair before I go
to sleep. Using too much can make your hair a bit waxy before you wash it
out, so that's what I would recommend.Answered on 5/9/2014 by Anonymous
A:If use it after and brush it very well. That's what works best for me!

Q:Does this product help to prevent split ends from worsening, or does it just hide the appearance of them?Asked on 4/13/2014 by maddieemily from Oklahoma
A:Shine So Bright helps repair and prevent split ends by nourishing and improving the strength of the hair.Answered on 4/15/2014 by Anonymous
A:In my experience it helps prevent split ends from getting worse and treats/hides the ones you do have. It's also great for easing really frizzy tips/static without weighing your hair down. I only use it once or twice a week as a maintenance treatment and as needed when my hair decides to get really poofy. I have thin/fine hair that splits easily.Answered on 4/14/2014 by Anonymous
A:In my opinion it helps them from getting worse. At first, I didn't think it did anything but now it is a must have in my purse. I use it between washes and it seems to do the trick. Tames fly always and trouble spots too without having to use a sticky gel. I hope that helps you!

Q:How often should Shine So Bright be used?Asked on 1/9/2014 by mmb
A:Shine So Bright can be used as often as is best for your hair. Some prefer to use it daily, and for others it works better with their hair to use it weekly or so. We suggest experimenting to see what works best for you!Answered on 3/14/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I use shine so bright every day! I wash with fair trade honey shampoo then use okra conditioner. After my hair mostly air dries I use the tip of my fingernail to get just a little shine so bright out of the container. I rub it in my palms to get a nice consistency then apply it to the ends of my hair about 7 inches from the bottom all the way down really concentrating on the tips. Before I started using these products my hair was extremely damaged and full of frizz. I used to blow dry every day with a round brush and had to keep my hair pretty short. The ends were always so broken and damaged. It is an on going cycle of damaging my hair then doing more damage trying to hide the damage. I have been with my new routine now for about 8 months and my hair stylist just can't believe how healthy and amazing my hair is. He does not even bother trying to sell me "salon products" anymore. I literally saw a huge difference the first time that I used it and it only gets better. I have tried every product out there. Nothing even comes close. Best thing is now I don't even have to blow dry my hair or do anything to it. I can just wash and go. I carry a shine so bright in my purse and also have one at home. When I get to where I am going I just comb through my hair really quick and use the shine so bright and viola ready! No more hours wasted only to have unhealthy hair! I tried a few lush products before I came to this combination but nothing worked like this. I suppose that everyone will formulate their own special routine. But as far as the shine so bright, I believe that would be a win for everyone. It seems to almost "mend" the split ends until your hair has the chance to grow out all of the mess that well I called hair before I stumbled on lush products. Now I really don't have split ends and my hair has grown so much. I still use shine so bright because it protects my ends from the splitting again and does give a nice healthy shine to my now beautiful bouncy long hair :-) Hope that helps!

Q:Can this be used on dyed hair? Will it lighten the color?Asked on 7/22/2013 by Unknown from Hawthorn Woods, IL
A:Shine So Bright does not contain ingredients known to lighten hair, so it shouldn't affect your hair colour!Answered on 9/20/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
A:I have been dying my hair for years and I have been using this treatment for a little over a month now. It does not affect the color in the slightest way.Answered on 9/5/2013 by Ash from San Diego, CA
Q:Should you only use this product when your hair is dry?Asked on 1/4/2013 by Anonymous
A:We do recommend using Shine So Bright on dry hair to avoid diluting it or rinsing it out!Answered on 3/7/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
Q:Can this product be used as a style wax? I'm currently using something to tame my bangs but looking for a more natural approach.Asked on 12/27/2012 by Anonymous
A:Shine So Bright is meant to be used on the ends of the hair as a split-end treatment, however, R&B would probably do the trick for you. It helps to tame frizzies and fly-aways without weighing the hair down!Answered on 3/7/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this "Shine so Bright" best to use on wet or dry hair? Does it matter? I just bought it today but forgot to ask the lady in the store! Thank you!Asked on 11/16/2012 by Annie from St. Petersburg, FL
A:Shine So Bright works most effectively on dry hair. Wet hair has absorbed water and this hinders the hair from further absorbing the nutrients and other beneficial ingredients found in this balm.Answered on 11/22/2012 by Anonymous
Q:how might this work on cuticles? Lemony Flutter is a greasy, stinky, ineffective disaster for me. I hope this might be a nicer alternative.Asked on 10/23/2012 by Lora
A:I'm sorry to hear Lemony Flutter didn't work out for you! You can definitely try using the Shine So Bright for cuticles, as it contains many softening ingredients. Let us know if it works for you!Answered on 11/2/2012 by Megan from LUSH
