Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray

Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray

post signature This beauty came in a Glossybox which made me initially dubious but after some googling I discovered a bit more about the product and got a bit excited. The Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray retails for nearly £20 so I was expecting a pretty good result.

Awapuhi is actually a sub brand of Paul Mitchell. Awapuhi itseld it's a plant thats been grown on a farm far away and has been decades in the making. This is what they say about it:

"Add brilliance to any style. This clean, light mist adds luminous shine and helps protect hair. Natural Awapuhi extract balances moisture for a healthy-looking finish. ideal for heat styling.

and then theres the "apply to finished style".

It is supposed to condition and illuminate hair but I got a bit confused about how to use it. I'd read some reviews that said they used it as a heat protector whilst styling but its supposed to be using after styling to add shine. I guess it works in a similar way to a serum, it smoothes my hair and makes it very very shiny. It actually says on the label that it is ideal for heat styling but it doesn't offer any protection from heat whatsoever so I won't be doing that any time soon. Perhaps it's because excessive application of heat to the hair can make it lose its lustre.

Glossybox reckon the ingredients are proven to restore weak and damaged hair but I haven't noticed an improvement after several months of frequent use.

In any case it does make my hair shiny and it smells lovely and light. I don't think I would shell out the money to repurchase this when I can get the same results with a much cheaper product. If you'd like to purchase this yourself search here.

It doesn't contain parabens or silicone which gets a thumbs up. They also don't test on animals which is good.
