My Two Cents - Nourish & Shine by Jane Carter

I've recently been using Nourish & Shine by Jane Carter Solution.  I was drawn to the product because of the all-natural ingredients.  I've been using for over a month now, and I must say that I love, love, love it! 

The first time I used it I ended up with not so great results.  I applied it to my soaking wet hair in sections after my wash/conditioning session. This left my hair icky and greasy.  I hated it. This product contains butters and oils, and oils are not always my friend.  I have to be especially careful with oils post wash/condition because my hair tends to repel the oil and I'll just be left with an oily head of hair. 

How this product works best for me is in-between washes.  I lightly spritz my hair with water, and apply the Nourish & Shine in a few big swoops.  The combination of the spritz and the Nourish & Shine really helps to spruce things up, and keeps my hair moisturized in between wash days.  I'm really a fan of the product.  It just might become part of my staple list.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Coils
  • Smooth texture is very easy to apply

  • Great flowery sent
  • Helps to maintain softness and moisture in between washes

  4. Hi Yvie,

    Thank you for this honest review! You probably used too much Nourish & Shine the first time you used it. The product is heavily concentrated and you only need yo use a pea sized amount for each use. Also, it is recommended for medium to coarse hair, if your hair is fine, we recommend Hair Nourishing Cream as a great alternative!

    With love,
