Schwarzkopf Silhouette Ultimate Shine Extreme Gloss Spray - A Review

A month or so ago I was contacted by a PR company asking if I would like to try another Schwarzkopf hair product 0f course I agreed especially when the word shine was mentioned! As I've said on numerous occasions I have a major issue with shine or lack of it on my hair - when my hair was darker it was so glossy and shiny but since I have had so much blonde put in it it can look quite brassy and dull. Sprays, serums you name it I've used it! Anyway the product they sent my was the Schwarzkopf Professional Silhouette Ultimate Shine Extreme Gloss Spray. The product comes in a 300ml can which reminds me of a hairspray can


This is a super generous size for a shine enhancing product -the majority I've had are a 100ml maximum ! The product dispenses in a super fine mist exactly what you would expect from an aerosol - pump action and self propelled sprays may be better for the environment but there is a tendency to get clumps of product - not with this! you get a super fine mist that covers your hair evenly.

The product itself smells amazing - it has a gorgeous fruity type scent which lingers on your hair but at the same time isn't overpowering -so I like the practical packaging and the smell but how does it perform? Schwarzkopf claim that their "Shine Boost Formula" which helps the hair to reflect light "leaving hair sparkling with radiance and vitality" I have to say I think I agree with this - I don't know how well you can see it in these pictures (they are a bit blurry Mummy LouLou is no photographer lol) but my over processed hair certainly has a gloss / shine to it but without the feeling that it's greasy or waxy.

Another thing I like about this product is that it gives an "invisible hold" - it helps to keep your hair in place to some degree but more importantly it doesn't leave it dry, crispy,tangled or full of product build up - you can't actually feel that you are wearing anything on your hair no matter how much you apply, and believe me in the course of using this product I have layered it on for your benefit :)
Would I buy this? Yes without a doubt I have used more cheaper and more expensive products and I have been way less impressed. I love how it performs and I love the smell, oh and my salon uses it :)! This item is available from all Schwarzkopf stockists for around £3.75 for 300ml. For more information and stockist details please check out the Schwarzkopf website
(Just to add I was sent this product for review purposes I haven't been paid or compensated in any way for the is post - this is my own opinion yours may vary)


  1. I really think you'd love Tigi Beadhead "Headrush" - "shine adrenaline with a Superfine mist"

    I'm a huge fan of it and it seems to do the same job, although this product is a staple in my routine for going out or just if my hair looks abit dull. :)


  2. I hav this and reviwed it a few weeks ago, I like it. Agree with what you have written- your hair looks lovely. x
