Hair Gloss Treatment
Healthy hair is naturally shiny and reflective. But over time, repeated processing, dryness, and damage can cause structural damage to the hair shaft. Portions of the cuticle lift up and become jagged; this greatly increases the risk of breakage while making hair appear dry, dull, and just plain unhealthy.
If that’s a struggle you’re familiar with, here’s a little bit of good news: it’s possible to get your shine back in as little as one session with a hair gloss treatment.
What is a Hair Gloss Treatment?
A hair gloss treatment is a special demi-permanent color process that seals the hair shaft and smooths down the cuticle to make it more reflective. The entire treatment takes only a few minutes of your time and can instantly rejuvenate your look.
Gloss can be clear, creating a flexible, glass-like surface that shines like a gem. Or, it can be tinted to match or complement your all-over color for a quick refresh between sessions. This is ideal because most gloss treatments don’t contain the same harsh chemicals found in dyes. You get the same “new color” look with far less damage.
Best of all, a hair gloss treatment is easy, effective, and quick. You can have one every three to four weeks to amp up color and shine in as little as an hour. Simplicity at its best!
Is a Hair Gloss Treatment Right for You?
If your hair is so damaged that even light chemical processes may result in breakage, Elena might recommend k-packs or deep conditioning treatments first. Even then, most people are able to tolerate a hair gloss treatment after a little TLC.
If your hair is processed, colored, dry, or damaged, you stand to benefit the most from gloss treatments. Results are more obvious and dramatic when applied over this type of hair.
And let’s talk about damage, too. Because gloss treatments are easier on your hair, they’re far less likely to cause problems. In fact, a good hair gloss treatment can actually be restorative, sealing out the hair shaft to reduce breakage.
But gloss can be a great option for people with virgin hair, too, especially if your hair is naturally dull or flat. The right hair gloss will add volume, dimension, and depth, which can make your hair appear thicker, more lustrous, and just generally full of life.
Just want to refresh your color between sessions? Skip the early re-color and go for a tinted gloss instead. Elena will use a tone in the same shade as your dominant color, applying it all over the hair to make your color “pop” once again.
The science of great hair always starts with a smooth, sealed-in cuticle that properly fends off damage and reflects light. If you’re struggling with your hair currently, or you just want to take your style to the next level, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Sometimes, a little hair gloss treatment is all you need.
