Before we get started, I feel it’s important for you to know that I don’t have any prior experience working in the field of hair care. I’m just a girl with hair and a hole in my pocket from all the salon dyes I’ve gotten over the years.

If you are still recovering from a bad bleach job or if you do not know and trust a hairdresser who would hold a knife to your throat if you tried such a treatment on your own, do not attempt to treat your hair at home.

However, I gloss my thick, curly hair at home on a regular basis because I find that this is one of the most effective things I can do to keep it in good condition.

By the time I reached the point in my junior year of high school when I asked my mother to give me blonde stripes like Avril Lavigne’s, I was already a dedicated glosser. Instead, she made a counteroffer to teach me how to bring out my natural color using dye that I could make in the comfort of my own home.

What exactly does “hair gloss” refer to?

Shine and depth can be added to your natural hair color with the use of a gloss, which is also known as a “demi-permanent” in some circles. A gloss can also be used to revive recently applied dye. Glossing is the most effective method for preserving your natural color or adding shine to a dye job done at a salon.

Due to the fact that it is a more global process, it is possible that it is not the best option for balayage, which is an artistic method of coloring the hair. There is also the option of getting a clear gloss, which is not something I personally prefer.

Even though I’m not a professional stylist, I think blondes would benefit from having a clear gloss applied to their hair. The longevity of your gloss can vary anywhere from four to six weeks, depending on factors such as the condition of your hair, how frequently you wash it, and whether or not you swim in chlorinated pools.

On average, a gloss will last between these two time periods. After using a gloss treatment for approximately one month, I have noticed that my reflection is not as shiny as I would like it to be.

What steps do I have to take?

You should start by acquiring a gloss. So, tell me about the good stuff. It is not difficult to find a gloss that will not put a significant dent in one’s financial resources, even in the current economic climate. Because it helps maintain the appropriate pH level for our hair, ammonia is frequently included in hair dyes.

However, it is known to be damaging to the strands of our hair, so I try to steer clear of products that contain it (and smell pretty terrible too). Even though ammonia is not included in the majority of commercial glosses, it is still smart to read the product label.

I also bring a deep conditioner with me because I want my hair to come out of the treatment feeling silky and looking shiny.

I am aware that there are glosses on the market that are more sophisticated, but the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss has been my go-to for years. Choose a gloss that comes in a shade that is comparable to that of your hair for the best possible results.

This seems very counterintuitive to me as someone who thrives on disruption and change (you probably wouldn’t have seen me in a Chemist Warehouse trying to decide between a violet-purple box dye and an auburn gloss).

Please make sure to give the label a thorough read before attempting to use the product because it contains important information. If you wash your hair the night before, you’ll get the best results because your hair won’t have any dirt or styling products on it.

If you wash your hair the morning of, you won’t get as good of results. I never apply any kind of product to my hair before washing it, and I also never apply any kind of product to my hair after washing it. It is easier for the gloss to adhere to my hair if I wait for my natural oils to return to normal before beginning the treatment.

When it comes time to gloss, I’ve found that applying the solution to dry hair makes it much easier to see if there are any areas that I’ve skipped over.

If you have a preference for doing things a particular way, you should probably section off your hair before applying the product and work your way from the roots to the ends. As someone who is interested in chaos theory and randomness, I usually just apply it like shampoo and occasionally remember to pay attention to the ends of my hair.

What is the difference between glosses and dyes?

Glosses are much simpler to apply than dyes, which is another reason why I like to use them. It is important to keep in mind that the color you are currently using is very similar to the color you are already using.

After applying the product thoroughly all over my scalp, I comb it through using an outdated, grimy wide-tooth comb, then pile all of my hair on top of my head and wait for the amount of time that is recommended (usually around 20 minutes).

I use warm water to rinse it out of my hair, and afterward, I condition it very thoroughly. Voila! Shine can be restored to dirty hair by washing it.

People who are just starting out can maintain the natural appearance of their hair between visits to the salon by using a gloss, which is a straightforward and uncomplicated method.

In addition, as the warm weather is on its way, this is an excellent, economical, and, for the most part, foolproof way to maintain the health and luster of your hair.
