COLOR TREATMENT

Coloring your hair doesn’t have to be a lifetime commitment. In fact, there is an easy way to flirt with new haircolors without compromising the integrity of your strands. Hair glosses, like Redken’s Shades EQ, are a form of demi-permanent haircolor that can help enhance your hair’s natural shine while correcting and revitalizing the tone of your hair. It’s perfect for those who are new to the world of haircolor or simply want to try out a new beauty trend without committing.

Hair glosses help give you the richness, depth, and dimension you never knew was missing from your strands. These glosses work by using a mixture of direct and oxidative dyes to glaze, refresh, and correct your current haircolor. It helps to improve the look of your hair without over processing or drying out your strands. In fact, this haircolor basically thinks it’s a conditioner. How cool is that? Think of it as your haircolor’s new BFF.  

DAILY HAIR STYLING
