Glossing, is the magic word!
If you belong to those who love well-groomed and silky glossed hair with natural color shades, then this glossing service is a 100% must-have.
See now what a gloss treatment looks like! I´m sure you will love it!
WHAT IS HAIR GLOSSING?
The glossing service is a very nourishing and long-lasting hair treatment. At the same time, it works as a deep conditioner, filling the hair, closing the cuticle, creating a smooth surface where light can bounce, providing intensive shine and natural color shades.
Glossing – it´s like lip gloss for your hair!
It overlays the strand, creating a protective shield that keeps color molecules in and prevents them from going down the drain.
The result is beautiful, smooth and shiny hair, with a much softer feel. You can literally feel the silky smooth texture in your hands!
Is your hair stressed from too much sun, chlorine and salt water? A hair gloss also helps to repair any summer hair damage you might have.
GLOSSING WITH AND WITHOUT COLOR PIGMENTS
You need to refresh your natural hair color? Then the clear glossing service, without any color pigments, is just perfect for you!
But it´s getting even more exciting when you want to enrich your actual hair color with some smooth color effects – without permanently colouring the hair.
It´s perfect as an “in between refresher” to your permanent color services, for those who just don’t want to color their hair permanently, or for hair color newbies.
By adding to the mix some color pigments, glossing reveals its whole versatility. The hair stylist is able to set restrained color accents depending on your personal preferences. Tinted options range from brighter blonde (to cancel out brassiness) and gold (to bring out the warmth in your strands) to red or brown hues (to bring out the warmth in darker shades of hair).
But even if your hair is already colored, glossing makes absolute sense! Tinted glossing treatments actually help enhance and maintain the current hair color for a longer time.
By the way, the glossing service allows you to enrich every hair color, whether it’s natural or tinted hair.
GLOSSING FOR COLOUR CORRECTION
Your hair has been colored, but it´s a bit of a mistake? Or you are just not happy with the result of the recently made strands or shades? The glossing service can help adjust previous color mistakes. But you definitely must turn to a trusty hair stylist or colorist, who is familiar with the glossing service. Only he/she knows what mixture will save you.
WHAT´S IN THE MIX?
High quality glossing products, such as the semi-permanent hair color “Shine & Tone” from La Biosthetique is what we use in our VIP Studio, are in free of ammonia and silicones, containing hair and scalp friendly – mostly naturally – ingredients like brown algae, coconut oil, green tea extract, sunflower-, and jojoba oil.
Only “Shine & Tone Clear“(the one to use for clear glossing, without any colour pigments) contains some silicone in combination with the also natural cuckoo flower essence.
WHAT DOES THE GLOSSING PROCEDURE LOOK LIKE?
A glossing treatment at your hair salon starts always with a deep purifying shampoo to clear the hair from all kinds of residues. Then your hair is treated with a special seal conditioner in order to prepare the hair for the following glossing procedure. After that the conditioner is cleared with water and blow-dried.
From now on the actual (color) glossing service starts. To apply the glossing mix it takes between 10 and 25 minutes, depending on the length, quantity and condition of the hair. Now it’s left on for another 10- 25 minutes. Once done, the mixture is rinsed thoroughly with water to remove the glossing. That´s pretty much all!
Optionally, the hair stylist can add a leave-in conditioner, so the hair gets even more combable.
To complete the service, we love to use the Glossing Spray from La Biosthétique. That gives an extra super gloss.
HOW LONG DOES THE GLOSSING LAST?
How often do you rinse your hair? How do you treat it? Do you maintain your hair at home with the appropriate hair care products?
Blow-drying, using the wrong hair care products or just being exposed to too much sun, chlorine or salt water can take their toll on.
Your gloss will last between 3 and 6 weeks maximum. By then you should definitely consider a refresh. But that´s not bad either, so you can try out a new color tone.
AFTER THE GLOSSING
To allow for the longest possible gloss effect, you need the right hair care products at home. But please keep away from low-quality stuff from the supermarket. You need a premium-quality hair care line with a proper color protection. I really recommend this to you!
The color care product line “Protection Couleur” from La Biosthétique is such a high-quality product. Its special shampoos and conditioners are just perfect to protect and maintain your hair after a glossing service. You’ll love it, there is always the right product for every hair color. With this color protection range you are perfectly prepared!
If you want to use other products, please make sure choosing a mild cleaning shampoo with an active color protection complex to avoid loss of pigments.
As a conditioner you should opt for one which has ultra hydrating and nourishing ingredients, and of course an active color protection complex.
Best would be a hair care line that adapts to each particular hair color, like the color protection hair care range “Protection Couleur”.
