One of the most common questions I get here on the blog is “what is your hair color?” I have been a firm believer that if you can do it yourself and it’s easy enough to do, do it. So when it comes to my hair color, why would I spend +$80 to get a color when I can do the same for $20?
I have been using Madison Reed hair color for about a year and I really love it. It’s easy to use and I have my color kits on a set schedule to be delivered to me automatically every 8 weeks so I never miss an “appointment!” They have some other great products. I love their shampoo and conditioner, and it helped my hair get through the ‘no-poo’ fiasco of January. My mom also uses their root touch up on the regular. I don’t have grey yet, but this product is genius and I will be using it the second I see those silver backs coming through.
One of the products I hadn’t tried yet (but was dying to!) was their hair gloss. I had heard great things about it and even mentioned it here. The other day I finally set aside time to try it out – and get it on video! – for you guys to see too! So the question is — should I use hair gloss?
Hair gloss is not meant to be a permanent color or used to cover grey. It’s actually meant to revive and enhance your current color (redheads – can I get an amen?!), add tone, and boost shine. It almost sounds too good to be true, but wait — there’s more! It lasts up to 8 washes and it makes your hair softer and shinier. It’s like a deep conditioner mixed with reviving color.
Naturally, I had to give this product a try so I could report back to you guys. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t take these duties upon myself? Not a good one, that’s what kind! The product is really easy to use — I used one bottle on my hair, which was cutting it close because I have a lot of hair, but it worked! Here is my before and after.
The difference is really noticeable! As you can see, it vamped up my color, which is great because red can get pretty ucky. It made my hair so much softer and smoother. My mom even noticed that my hair looked different! I was completely happy with the end result and will continue to use this product.
The hair gloss from Madison Reed comes in 7 tones including a clear gloss which will just help condition and revive any color. You can order just one tube or order a continuous gloss plan to make sure your hair is always looking fly! I didn’t realize this, but if you have shoulder length hair, this tube can last for two uses! For me that wasn’t going to work because I have thick long hair, but one tube covered it.
Like I mentioned, all the shades are deep conditioning treatments and they help make your hair healthier and even help it hold the permanent color as well. It adds gloss and also helps show off all colors in their best light and help make your hair feel better over time.
If you don’t have colored hair you can still make this gloss work for you! For one, you could try a new hair color without all the commitment. Or you could use it just for its deep conditioning/gloss benefits to add shine and dimension to your hair!
