Hair Gloss Treatment

Healthy hair is naturally shiny and reflective. But over time, repeated processing, dryness, and damage can cause structural damage to the hair shaft. Portions of the cuticle lift up and become jagged; this greatly increases the risk of breakage while making hair appear dry, dull, and just plain unhealthy.

If that’s a struggle you’re familiar with, here’s a little bit of good news: it’s possible to get your shine back in as little as one session with a hair gloss treatment.

What is a Hair Gloss Treatment?

A hair gloss treatment is a special demi-permanent color process that seals the hair shaft and smooths down the cuticle to make it more reflective. The entire treatment takes only a few minutes of your time and can instantly rejuvenate your look.

Gloss can be clear, creating a flexible, glass-like surface that shines like a gem. Or, it can be tinted to match or complement your all-over color for a quick refresh between sessions. This is ideal because most gloss treatments don’t contain the same harsh chemicals found in dyes. You get the same “new color” look with far less damage.

Best of all, a hair gloss treatment is easy, effective, and quick. You can have one every three to four weeks to amp up color and shine in as little as an hour. Simplicity at its best!

How it Works

A hair gloss treatment is relaxing and incredibly chill. Elena will help you identify whether or not you’re missing certain tones; if you are, she’ll help you find the right combination to achieve your hair goals. Then, it’s time for application.

Elena will begin by applying the gloss all over your hair, root to tip. The aim is to ensure that every portion of your hair is fully saturated with gloss; this prevents spottiness and an uneven tone. From there, all you have to do is lean back, relax, and hang out for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Once the hair gloss is fully processed in, Elena will rinse the formula out and deep condition your hair for extra shine. Then, it’s up to you how you want it styled. This is the ideal time for a fresh cut, a Brazilian blowout, or a new style!

High-Precision Tone Adjustments

A hair gloss treatment can help you adjust or change all-over color to beat fading. But it’s also ideal when you aren’t quite happy with your current shade or when you just want to boost color a little bit without a full change. It’s subtle, precise, and effective, too.

Here are some hair gloss ideas:

  • Try gold-tinted gloss to make blonde and brown shimmery in winter.
  • Eliminate brassiness with purple-tinted gloss for perfect platinum hair.
  • Make coppery-red highlights really pop with cherry tinted gloss
  • Highlights too bright? A darker-tinted gloss will make them more subtle.
  • Lost your blue-black shine? A gloss with tint can help you get it back.
  • Just want a bit more dimension? Tinted gloss can help you achieve that, too.

Not sure what color or tint you need? That’s okay! Elena is a color mixing expert who has a ton of experience handling tints, tones, and shades. It takes only a few minutes and a little history to identify your perfect path forward.

Is a Hair Gloss Treatment Right for You?

If your hair is so damaged that even light chemical processes may result in breakage, Elena might recommend k-packs or deep conditioning treatments first. Even then, most people are able to tolerate a hair gloss treatment after a little TLC.

If your hair is processed, colored, dry, or damaged, you stand to benefit the most from gloss treatments. Results are more obvious and dramatic when applied over this type of hair.

And let’s talk about damage, too. Because gloss treatments are easier on your hair, they’re far less likely to cause problems. In fact, a good hair gloss treatment can actually be restorative, sealing out the hair shaft to reduce breakage.

But gloss can be a great option for people with virgin hair, too, especially if your hair is naturally dull or flat. The right hair gloss will add volume, dimension, and depth, which can make your hair appear thicker, more lustrous, and just generally full of life.

Just want to refresh your color between sessions? Skip the early re-color and go for a tinted gloss instead. Elena will use a tone in the same shade as your dominant color, applying it all over the hair to make your color “pop” once again.

The science of great hair always starts with a smooth, sealed-in cuticle that properly fends off damage and reflects light. If you’re struggling with your hair currently, or you just want to take your style to the next level, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Sometimes, a little hair gloss treatment is all you need.

Hair Gloss Treatment - HER Hair by Elena

I was referred to Elena and I was nervous to try a new hairstylist. Our first consultation was an eye opening experience. She listened to my ideas and gave me her expert option. I appreciated her honestly and believe she had my hair's best interest.

She was able to take out the red dye and turn me into a blonde. I never thought I could have healthy long blonde hair before her. She is talented and very patient with me. I definitely recommend to call and book an appointment with Elena Rosas!!!

When I first went to Elena I had never colored my hair because there was never anyone I was able to trust with that responsibility. The first few times I went with her I just got cuts until I started to see her work. I took the chance and allowed her to do her "magic" on my hair & I am so happy that I did. I have not once been disappointed. She is 100% honest and refuses do a session on your hair that will damage your hair in one sitting.

When I first wanted my hair colored I showed her a color that was about 5x lighter than my actual hair color and she refused to do it in one sitting because it would damage my hair tremendously. I wasn't upset I was glad that she was honest because majority of stylists will do it in one session which makes hair look very unhealthy. She is unlike any stylist out there, she is an incredible woman with a whole lot of talent who knows her job better than anyone I know! I love Elena, she's the BEST!!

I drove an hour and a half round trip to have Elena fix some highlights-gone-awry and a haircut that I knew was off but was too afraid to be critical of it. Rome can't be built in a day but she wisely suggested a gradual route towards fixing and moving towards what I'm sure will turn out to be perfectly natural highlights and a great cut that just needs a little time to grow into itself.

If you want wonderfully natural highlighted hair, you can tell by her pictures & Instagram that she completely knows what she's doing! She's so skilled at her craft and she takes your hair seriously - both its health and color and what you're able to keep up. Go to Elena if you are looking to take your color to the next level and not just settle for what is typically offered; she does a great job!
