Hot on the heels of hair steaming, Brazilian blowouts, or just throwing your hair in a bun and calling it a day, comes a treatment that promises shiny, moisturized hair–even in the dead of winter. The treatment will revitalize even the dullest hair color, restore shine, and tone down brassiness.
The treatment is known as a hair gloss (or glaze) and you can get it done professionally or do it yourself at home. The hair treatment can be tinted or clear, but it will certainly tame flyaways, reduce frizz, and give hair an overall shiny appearance.
So, what’re the best hair gloss treatments to try at home? Tinted hair glosses are best left to the professionals because they are formulated to bring out your individual color. But, a clear gloss is a perfect addition to your beauty routine at home. Here are some of our favorites.
