Ulta’s Ultimate Shine Luminous Clear Glaze ($10) made our ombré locks incredibly bright after just one use! Leave on for ten minutes post-wash, then rinse. It’s rich, so stick to the bottom half of your hair if you have oily or thin locks. Want a color boost along with a dose of shine? Try their brown and red versions.
Clairol’s Shine Happy Clear Shine Treatment ($8) gave our dark hair intense shine, even without a blowout! The box comes with two formulas you mix together and apply to damp, unwashed hair for 10 minutes (oil is good for your scalp, so don’t shampoo first!).
This one requires a little more work, but it’s worth it! Apply Kim Vo’s Brilliant Luster Glaze ($24) to towel-dried hair, comb through, and wrap locks in cellophane wrap for twenty minutes. (You can use a shower cap if you prefer.) Makes hair extra smooth.
Want to liven up your brown hair? John Frieda’s Luminous Color Glaze Brilliant Brunette ($10) delivers shine and a dose of subtle color. One use made our hair slightly deeper and richer. (Don’t worry if you drip the brown gel on your forehead; it will come off with a gentle scrub.) Blondes and redheads can try the brand’s clear formula: Luminous Color Glaze Clear Shine ($10).
Oscar Blandi’s At Home Salon Glaze Shine Rinse ($27) is a cocktail of good-for-your-hair ingredients that boost health and shine! Olive and macadamia nut oils brighten strands while a mixture of proteins and panthenol restore moisture. Bonus? Sunscreen helps slow color fading.
