Demi-permanent hair color is a gentler form of haircolor that fades gradually over time. Glosses, a type of demi-permanent hair color, use a mixture of direct and oxidative dyes to glaze, refresh, and correct your current color without over processing or drying out strands. During a hair gloss service the haircolor molecules simply coat the strands of hair rather than dive deep into the cuticle like they do during a permanent haircolor treatment. This keeps hair soft, shiny and smooth while depositing beautiful color..
HOW LONG DOES A HAIR GLOSS LAST?
Since it's a form of demi-permanent haircolor, a hair gloss fades gradually over time. This means you won't get any of the harsh root regrowth that comes with permanent haircolor. A gloss will last anywhere from 4-6 weeks, the perfect amount of time to try out a new shade while achieving shiny, healthy-looking hair.

Unfortunately, haircolor will only last so long on your strands before it begins to fade. Using a hair gloss is the perfect way to quickly refresh dulling haircolor between coloring services. Once applied to the hair, the gloss perfects, tones, and color-corrects any haircolor imperfections that have occurred since your last visit. Say good-bye to faded ends, dulling blonde hair, and discolored looking strands. With Shades EQ gloss, you can transform your haircolor in just 20 minutes!
4. GET GLASS HAIR

If you've fallen in love with the glass hair trend that's taken over the internet, we've got good news! Hair glosses are like an Instagram filter, IRL. They help to add vibrancy and shine to your hair no matter what your lighting situation is. Whether you choose a tint of color or stick to your color with a clear gloss service, a gloss treatment enhances your hair's natural shine for sleek, reflective hair. One of the main benefits of Shades EQ Gloss is that it works by closing the cuticle of the hair and creating a smooth surface for light to reflect off of.

With hair glosses, your color change can look very natural and subtle. For instance, sometimes when the hair is bleached it can look very yellow due to the hair’s natural undertones. By adding a gloss, your stylist can tone down that yellowness and add in a new hue. So, the hair will still be blonde, but the gloss will allow your stylist to make the color either more golden, ashy toned blonde or any other variation they choose! Think of hair glosses as the perfect final touch to your haircoloring service.
