This is a legacy post that I’ve given a facelift because who doesn’t want shiny hair? I’ve done this four times now, including on my highlights – and it looks great. Opinions are the same, but is formatted and edited for easier reading and flow.
I shared a tutorial on how to DIY Hair Gloss in May 2014. It’s been a while, and it’s time to do it again – mostly to refresh the shine, and partially to make the process easier.
Supplies needed are the same as before, with a couple additions:
- Hairbrush – (Original Draft? My Denman. Since? The Wet Brush.)
- Clairol Professional Radiance Colorgloss in Clear Shine
- Clairol Professional Radiance Color Infuser
- Conditioner – L’Oreal Feria Professional ($9) and Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle ($3-4) are great choices.
- Gloves – vinyl, latex, or nitrile, whatever works.
- Two combs – A wide-tooth one and a fine one.
- Section Clips – You will thank me; they are worth it.
- Graduated Salon Mixer/Applicator bottle – this one is from Sally Beauty.
- A color mixing bowl and brush (NOT METAL).
I picked up a lot of this stuff from Sally Beauty when they had some sales and I had a 20% of, but a lot of that stuff can be found on Amazon, too. Instructions after the jump.
