When it comes to hair care, you need a helping hand to maintain healthy and beautiful tresses. Whether it is your monthly appointment of hair spa or root touch-ups for a glamorous dye job, you need a working relationship with a salon to sport a stunning mane. And while you might already be familiar with the basics of salon hair treatments, there are some services that are often not on the menu, but can be offered if you ask for it. Hair glossing is one such hair testament that you might not have crossed paths with, but should be definitely look into. Why? Read on to find out…
What is a hair gloss treatment
As the name suggests, hair glossing is an in-salon treatment that adds visible shine to dull looking hair. Coloured glosses are also used to tone artificially dyed hair colours, infusing new life to faded and brassy colours. They can also be used to cover greys in a subtle way, almost replacing hair dyes from some hair routines. They are carried out in the form of a leave-in treatment or mask that is applied on hair for a certain amount of time and then rinsed off. For natural hair colours, clear glosses are used to tone and enhance the pigment and make your hair look more vibrant.
Should you get a hair gloss treatment?
Hair glossing is a semi-permanent treatment whose results can last up to a month. They are comparatively quicker (30 mins - 1 hour) and affordable than other chemical treatments like keratin and cysteine. So if you manage to check off a few/all pointers below, your hair mane can do with a gloss treatment:
01. Hair glossing can quickly revamp dry, dull and lacklustre hair. The glossy treatment is covered deep inside the cuticles to give you shiny hair for days!
02. Hair glosses can replace hair dyes when touching up greys. This is especially true if you have a lighter hair colour and are looking for less damaging ways to cover up a few greys.
03. Hair gloss treatments can be used on a variety of hair colours — from bright reds to deep browns — as they are easily customisable. So, if your hair colour has started to look not-so-cute anymore (due to lack of care and wrong products) a hair gloss treatment can put things back in order.
FYI, a hair gloss treatment should also be followed up with proper care for the results to last. Use sulphate-free and colour-safe hair products to maintain the health of your tresses, and the vibrancy of the colour for longer.
