WHAT IS A HAIR GLOSS?

Let’s start with the basics. A hair gloss is a professional haircolor service and hair toner that is offered in a salon. This salon service provides a subtle touch of color to leave hair super shiny and conditioned. Hair glosses last 4-6 weeks and can be done in just 20 minutes! These types of hair toners are often executed by stylists as a way to tone, color-correct or add shine to the hair.  As these glosses are a form of demi-permanent haircolor, they are made up of a mix of both oxidative and direct dyes. Whether you want to try a shade of blonde, brown or red, this dynamic duo allows you to flirt with a new haircolor without fully committing to it.

WHAT MAKES REDKEN SHADES EQ DIFFERENT FROM OTHER HAIR GLOSSES?

Redken 2018 Shades EQ Toning Group

Redken Shades EQ isn’t your run-of-the-mill hair gloss. In fact, it’s a haircolor that thinks it’s a conditioner. Here are five ways that Shades EQ sets itself apart. 

SHADES EQ IS AN ACIDIC HAIRCOLOR:

Shades EQ hair gloss is an acidic demi-permanent haircolor. You may be wondering what makes acidic haircolor unique. Acidic demi-permanent haircolor offers gentle processing on the hair for outstanding condition and shine benefits. All of Redken's Shades EQ gloss shades are acidic and provide an extensive array of shade options. With it's gentle acidic formula, Shades EQ is not only the perfect hair toner for achieving any customized color you want, it also provides shine-enhancing benefits for healthy, beautiful haircolor. 

No Ammonia: 

Shades EQ is formulated without ammonia, so you won’t have to deal with any overpowering smell or any discomfort while the color processes.

Adds Shine:

Have we mentioned just how glossy your hair will be after a Shades EQ hair gloss service? The formula is infused with wheat amino acids that help to condition the hair and leave it looking super shiny.

Color Correcting Haircolor:

It's time to kiss brassy ends and regrown roots goodbye! Any type of discoloration or fading is immediately corrected after a Shades EQ service. Once applied to the hair, the formula gently blends and tones the hair to create a gorgeous finish.

Takes Only 20 Minutes:

You read that right. Shades EQ only takes 20 minutes to process once it’s applied. It’s a quick, easy service for those who want gorgeous haircolor in an instant.

WHY SHOULD I GET A HAIR GLOSS?

Do you like glossy, shiny hair that looks like it has been #blessed by the hair gods? Does your hair need a little extra care and conditioning after the summer? A  hair gloss service might be exactly what you need. Not only do these speedy hair toner services act as a final touch to any permanent haircolor service, but they can also stand alone as an instant fix for dull, discolored hair. What’s not to love? Think of all the times that you have spent staring in the mirror wishing for a quick hair pick-me-up; a little toning here, a little boost in shine there. For those days (and every other day), a Shades EQ gloss service is the answer for instant hair goals.

HOW DOES A HAIR GLOSS WORK?

After your initial consultation, your stylist will head to the color bar to whip up a custom hair gloss just for you. The gloss that your stylist mixes will be formulated to meet the color needs that you both discussed. After the color is mixed, the stylist will apply the gloss to your dry hair, let the color process (aka absorb) for 20 minutes, and then rinse. Be sure to have your phone ready – you’re going to need a picture of your fabulous new look!

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A GLOSS?

A Shades EQ hair gloss service is a low commitment hair color service that provides hair with high shine and a subtle wash of color. Since it’s a gloss, you don’t need to worry about visible regrowth, but will need to revisit your stylist to get a fresh application.
