Benefits Of A Clear Shine Bomb aka Glaze For Your Hair

Oct 25, 2023

Whether you want to protect color-treated hair, repair damage or just give a boost to shine and color, glazing might be your solution.

Available as a clear product or a transparent tinted gloss that adds a new dimension of color to your hair, glazing is a great way to treat your hair to special care. Because glazes are semi-permanent, they're ideal for trying a new hue or giving dull hair a lift.

Here are some other reasons we recommend glazes for anyone who wants more shine & color longevity.


By coating and sealing individual hair shafts, these products smooth the hair cuticle to correct damage from sun, wind, chlorine and other hair treatments. If you straighten or permanently color your hair is vulnerable, but glazes give it a layer of protection from further breakage.


Shiny hair gets that way when its cuticle, the outermost layer of tiny, overlapping protein plates, lies flat. A glazing or glossing treatment acts like a clear top coat, smoothing the microscopic imperfections on each shaft and letting your hair shine.


Some hair colors are notoriously short-lived, especially the warm reds and auburns. Blonde hair can turn brassy or even green with environmental damage, and deep brunette tones can find their richness fading after a few weeks. Glazes are a hair-friendly refresher, adding a translucent wash of color to your current hue and giving it greater dimension. To make the most of the natural highlights and lowlights in hair that hasn't been colored, choose a clear gloss.


Glazes extend thelife of your color justas they protect your hair. A glazing treatment forms a semi-permanent clear layer over each hair shaft that helps prevent your permanent color from fading. Just as a top coat keeps a manicure looking beautiful longer, glazing maintains your beautiful color the way it looked when you left the salon. We recommend glazing every four weeks between your other coloring services to keep your look fresh.


Glazing can even tame your hair. If you're prone to tangles, frizz or limp hair, glosses and glazes may help. Smooth hair cuticles can't tangle or become fuzzy as easily, so your hair becomes silky and easy to manage. For hair that goes flat, glazing adds enough body to help hair hold its style.
