There’s no shortage of color care products for ensuring your dye job keeps that “fresh out of the salon” vibe, but at-home hair gloss is without a doubt the most underrated. We tend to wax poetic about the importance of leaving most color-related treatment to a professional, but the truth is, there’s quite a lot you can manage at home besides your weekly washing and conditioning. A hair gloss, in the simplest words, is what gives the strands that non-greasy shine you first saw when the color was applied.
More often than not, it also covers the gamut of other concerns that come with dyeing your hair, such as brassiness, premature fading, and above all, the damage that quickly becomes irreversible when it isn’t addressed quickly. Though it sounds like a sticky situation you may want to avoid, at-home hair gloss products come in a variety of treatments, whether it’s a conditioner you keep in the shower, a semi-permanent color and deep treatment in one, or a luxurious cream that also tames flyaways.
So whether you’re a blonde, brunette, or any of the rainbow shades, here are the top-rated glosses that will keep you on point until your next appointment.
