Before You Reach For the Hair Color, Do This Instead

Before You Reach For the Hair Color, Do This Instead

At one point or another we're all going to discover a gray strand or two (or three), but you don't have to speed dial your colorist or head to the nearest drugstore for a gray-covering formula. The alternative? A clear gloss.

Recently, while receiving a complimentary cut at Serge Normant at John Frieda salon

, I remarked to my stylist, Jacob that I'd been noticing a few downy gray hairs pop up around my temples. Instead of going straight for hair color, he told me, opt for an ammonia-free clear gloss instead. The clear gloss will coat the hair, giving any gray strands a highlighted effect, all while blending in any errant grays with the rest of your hair. The non-ammonia formula, in turn, will not alter the structure of your hair, keeping your locks looking shiny and healthy in the process.

Try John Frieda Clear Shine Luminous Color Glaze ($17 for two) or Radiance Colorgloss Semi-Permanent Hair Color ($5.50) with the Clairol Radiance Color Infuser ($3) developer.

I still have a stain in my tub from when I used the tinted Frieda glaze years ago...I also bought the clear one, but didn't really notice any results. I really like the Frieda spray gloss as a finishing mist, though, especially since my wavy hair is so fine.

Hmmm...I might have to look into this. I have a couple of gray strands since I was a teenager.

I've read about glazes recently. I think I'm going to have to break down and try it. I have black hair and it's not as shiny as it want it to be. Hopefully, this will work!
