Perk up your ears ladies because we are sharing with you how you can bring your hair back to life with hair glossing...
What Is Hair Glossing
Hair glossing is a hair treatment to subtly tone down brassiness and improve the hair’s shine and radiance by applying a gloss finish. Whether you are blonde, brunette, or a read head, anyone can get it at a salon or do it at the comforts of your home. This treatment is meant to freshen up and enhance your hair color while adding a luminating shine to your locks.
When Should You Go For an Appointment
Hair glossing is perfect to get after a hair color appointment to color correct any imperfections and boost hair shine. It also seals in moisture and prevent tone and pigment from fading early. However, this is not limited only to those who went for a hair color change but also for people with untouched hair color.
Hair gloss (especially the box home treatment) has different shades you can pick to match with your hair color. If you choose a clear gloss, this will only add shine to your strands but will not alter your original hair color. However, if you choose a tinted one, make sure to pick the shade closest to your hair color to match and tone brassiness and touch up the hair color that lost its luster.
Here are 5 signs to observe whether your need to get it ASAP
Sign 1: Your stands are looking dry and limp
Sign 2: Your hair is turning brassy or getting that yellowish/orange tone
Sign 3: Your hair is dull and frizzy
Sign 4: Your hair lost its elasticity
Sign 5: You want your hair to look healthy and shiny
How Long Does Hair Glossing Last
It is recommended to go for a hair gloss treatment every 4-6 weeks (approximately 1 and a half months) or once your hair starts losing its shine. Both at-home and salon treatments can last up to 6-8 weeks (almost 2 months) until the gloss starts to fade.
Hair Gloss vs Hair Glaze
If your hairstylist is asking if you would like a gloss or a glaze, she is not talking about getting you a donut. These hair treatments may sound delicious, but they are actually meant to be mouthwatering for your hair. The difference of the two? Hair gloss stays longer and more permanent than a hair glaze. This is because a hair gloss penetrates through the cuticles while a glaze only coats the shaft and would only last for 1-2 weeks.
How To Hair Gloss At Home
Step 1: Get a hair gloss online or in store
Step 2: Rinse your hair and get rid of the dirt and oiliness
Step 3: Mix the gloss and check the box for instructions
Step 4: Apply the gloss and leave it for 25 minutes or at the recommended timeframe of the product’s instruction
Step 5: Wash it off with shampoo and conditioner
