Why would your stylist recommend a hair glossing service? Hair glossing service is typically an ammonia, alcohol, and peroxide free, translucent, intensely hydrating color formula that is applied to the hair to condition the hair and give shine. The color can be pigmented or clear, if you would like to add shine without color. The gloss colors are usually demi-permanent, which means it only deposits color onto the hair with no lift or lightening of hair. Hair glossing is temporary, which means there is no commitment to color. The glossing formula adds intense shine, conditioning, and strengthening of hair. It also refreshes hair color between permanent color services. This color application can be absolutely viewed as hair friendly. For healthier looking hair, consider hair glossing for your next beauty service.
