Do you look at your hair and often wonder that it needs something? A nice haircut? Or, maybe a fresh trim? No, wait, a protein treatment… but despite having so many options, you still feel that that’s not what your hair wants.
Enters the picture: a hair gloss treatment!
It’s likely that you may have heard about hair gloss treatment but don’t know exactly what it is or how it works. This blog post will serve as a perfect guideline as it gives a thorough lowdown on hair gloss treatments.
What Is a Hair Gloss Treatment?
A hair gloss is a temporary shine treatment that helps boost the color and quality of your hair. As the name suggests, this form of treatment has to do with adding shine to your hair, especially to color-treated hair. Over time, color-treated hair fades away and becomes damaged beyond repair. That’s when the use of hair gloss kicks in. The intended result of a hair gloss is to make your hair shinier and vibrant.
But that’s not all.
It also helps reduce frizzy hair, split ends, and dryness. Depending on the type of hair gloss treatments, you can also use them to tone the color of your hair. This helps eliminate brassiness and amplifies undertones.
A Hair Gloss vs. A Hair Glaze
Today, both “hair gloss” and “hair glaze” are interchangeably used and more or less mean the same thing. Both of them aim to give your hair a boost by making it all nice and shiny. That being said, there is a slight difference between the two treatment procedures.
Unlike a glaze, gloss products consist of ingredients like ammonia, which penetrate the hair shaft. This, in turn, helps your hair stay shiny for a long time (a month, to be precise). A glaze, on the other hand, lasts only for a week or two, depending on the type of shampoo and conditioner you use.
When Should You Get a Hair Gloss Treatment?
You can get a hair gloss treatment whenever you spot the first signs of dry, lackluster hair. If you like, you can get a gloss done every month as it provides a quick color/shine boost. This hair treatment is most beneficial in the winter months when hair tends to become super dry and brassy.
Here’s some welcoming news: you can easily get the treatment at home. But if you’re someone who likes to be on the safe side, it is ideal to leave it to the pros! You’ll be guaranteed a safer and longer-lasting hair gloss treatment that will make you want to flaunt your hair all the time!
