Some people are born with naturally shiny hair while others need a little help. For those who need help, a hair glossing treatment can work wonders. It gives your hair luxurious sheen. Salons may charge £32 or more for a glossing treatment. For approximately £7, you can buy enough supplies to perform three glossing treatments at home.

Shampoo your hair. Prior to applying a hair glossing treatment, you will need to shampoo your hair. You want to remove all of the hair styling products from your hair. Do not use a clarifying shampoo. Instead, use your daily shampoo. Shampooing your hair will rid it of any build-up and it will allow your hair to absorb the maximum amount of the glossing treatment.
Mix up the glossing treatment. Put gloves on to protect your hands and then mix the Clairol Professional Color Gloss with the Radiance Color Infuser in a hair colour bottle. Mix the amount that the bottle says is appropriate for your hair length. The longer your hair is, the more of the mixture you will need. Make sure to shake the solution up because you want to make sure the product is mixed properly. An uneven mixture will give uneven results.
It's time to apply the glossing treatment. Apply the mixture generously to your hair. Make sure every part of your hair is saturated with the glossing treatment. Once you are finshed, cover your hair with a plastic cap.
Sit down and relax for a while. Once you’ve applied the glossing treatment, it’s time to kick back and relax for a little bit. Allow the product to process in your hair for 20 to 30 minutes. If you’d like, you can also do a facial mask at this time and then rinse it off when you rinse out your hair.
Rinse it out. Once the glossing treatment has finished processing, it’s time to rinse it out. Rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water. Do not shampoo your hair again.
Follow up with a deep conditioning treatment. Once the glossing treatment is done, your hair will have definitive shine. However, since it is a hair colour treatment, you should do a deep conditioning treatment after. Leave the conditioner in your hair for up to 30 minutes. Rinse and style your hair. You’ll be amazed at how much shinier it is after the glossing treatment.
Tips and warnings
- To maintain your new shiny hair, do a glossing treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.
