What if we told you there were a simple solution to your hair color woes? Yes, seriously! Hair looking brassy and dry? Wish your dull color had a little more life in it? Want to go darker, but aren’t ready to fully commit? Three words – hair gloss treatment. Hair gloss treatments are the unsung heroes of the hair color world. And while you’ve likely heard the term “glossing,” you might not know much about it. We’ve got you covered.
What is Hair Glossing?
Most simply, a hair gloss treatment is a form of demi-permanent color that can help enhance your hair’s natural shine while correcting and revitalizing the tone of your hair, no damage necessary.
How Does Hair Glossing Work?
There are two different kinds of glosses: clear and tinted. Clear glosses reinvigorate strands with shine, while tinted glosses take it one step further and tone the hair. Because it’s demi-permanent, it deposits tone into the strand but doesn’t lift or lighten hair color. The formulas are also free of bleach and ammonia, so they won’t damage hair. What’s more, gloss treatments are fabulous conditioning tools to bring lackluster locks back to life. Gloss treatments are very acidic, closing the hair cuticle tightly. The result is an off the charts smooth surface texture that reflects a lot more light and has a much softer feel.
What are the Benefits of Hair Glossing?
Glossing is usually less pricey than allover color, highlights, or balayage, but the benefits are endless. In addition to enhancing shine, gloss treatments can make hair more manageable and voluptuous, reduce frizz, eliminate brassiness and refresh color tone in between color appointments. Oh, and it won’t leave you sitting in the salon for hours. Compared to a full color appointment, it takes no time at all. The process takes just around twenty minutes.
How Long Does Hair Glossing Last?
Gloss treatments usually last about four to six weeks before washing and fading out on their own, so they’re perfect for the darling who can’t commit.
