Q: Is a shine mist the same as oil sheen? Also, how do I use it on my curls to get more shine?
A: Good question. A shine mist may give your curls a similar effect as an oil sheen but mists are usually lighter and contain healthier oils like the coconut, chamomile, almond and avocado in your Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Control Shine Mist. It’s typically meant to be used in the final stage of your styling to add a realistic shine that’s not greasy, but your DE Mist is formulated to be used as a refresher spray as well.
Q: How do I use when styling?
A: You can add in a few spritzes to spiral sets and coils just before setting hair under a hooded dryer. Your shine mist is also perfect to use on your dried two-strand twists before unraveling to prevent frizz and encourage silkiness.
Q: Should I use my shine mist while fingerstyling?
A: If you want a very soft, less-defined fingerstyle, you can spritz the shine mist onto your wet strands. If you want to maintain your hold, we’d suggest using the mist just after your hair is dry.
Q: Can I use the shine mist to seal ends?
A: Yes, you can lightly spritz your ends with water and use your mist to seal. Make sure you’re only sealing ends that have been trimmed properly. You cannot seal split ends.
