The kinkier the hair the less shine because the cuticles do not lay flat. It's very difficult for the natural oils to reach the ends of every strand. This goes for 4A type hair, like myself.
I really hate not having shine because my hair looks so dry even if it isn't. I don't want it to look like I have a tumbleweed on my head. :\ I'll style my hair with oils and such to have shine but by the end of the day the shine is no longer there & when I do certain styles, I can't mess with my hair too much or I'll have frizz. It's really hard for me to oil and moisturize my hair without messing up the curls once a style is complete.
What can I do to achieve more shine that's longer lasting?
