Clear Gloss

Yesterday, I saw an old friend whose hair was normally...let's say, a little puffy and dry. However, yesterday her hair was actually shiny and looked like it had some vibrancy to it. She said that she had used something called Clairol Jazzing (or something like that) in Clear and that it was like a hair dye except that it just deposited clear gloss instead.

Does anyone know about this? Is it just a bunch of cones thrown on your hair???

Re: Clear Gloss

A GIS turned up something called "Radiance Color Gloss - Clear Shine". I'm not sure if this is what you were talking about or not, but all I can seem to find is that it makes your hair "shinier". I'm not turning up any ingredients.

Re: Clear Gloss

Jazzing sounds interesting! Maybe it's similar to the new Natural Instincts Shine Happy. I've heard some good things about it and have been wanting to try it out. It's fairly inexpensive too! Not sure what's in it though.....

Your welcome. If you don't already know, you can get Jazzing at Sally's Beauty Supply store for around $4 or less, no activators needed. Its all in the bottle. I've heard great things about it, as far as no damage, that sort of thing.

Re: Clear Gloss

desertflower, did you try the Jazzing clear today? I'm anxious to hear your results with this. I've only heard good things about it but I havn't used it myself. Let us all know how it went when you do. Thanks.

Re: Clear Gloss

I've used Robert Craig's "Clear Color" and have been very happy with it. I trust his products to be gentler to my hair than other commercial brands. On his website he refers to it as a "hair color", but it's not really accurate. In order for it to color your hair, you would have to mix it with one of his actual hair colors (it would then result in diluting down the hair color and giving you a lighter, shinier tint).

Used alone, it's a clear coating and makes your hair shine. No cones. No ammonia, No peroxide. No alcohol. Ingredients: Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate; Sodium Lauryl Sulfate; Sodium Perborate; Sodium Silicate; Sodium Sulfate; Xanthan Gum.

Here's a link: http://www.merchantamerica.com/rober...&product=10175

I was happy enough with the result that I bought some additional boxes that I will use in a few months for a special occasion.

Re: Clear Gloss

what about avoiding sulfates? are they all baddies ?

(I see there are some sulfates in the Robert Craig product)

Isnt there some henna that is colour free which gives the hair great shine, also?

It's called cassia obovata. It seems to take several applications to get shine, though.

Re: Clear Gloss

The instructions on the Natural Instincts Shine Happy say 'Not recommended for gray hair'. Aw Shucks. I hope not all of them say that. I notice Clariol makes them all, except the Robert Craig.

This is what I use on my hair. I got it from Sally's in the hiar dye section. It is actually a temporary hair rinse (but you can make it semi-permanent by adding heat). It makes my hair soft and shiny and it's not damaging. I actually get it applied the same day as my relaxer, and you can use it with other hair dyes (but not henna) to make the color more vibrant.

The only downside is that because it is a temporary rinse, the shiny effects usually fade after about 2 weeks for me (but I think it's because I co wash daily). Some people who don't wash as often as I do have said they've had the effects lasting up to six weeks.

I always thought that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is the worse of the bunch, but I really didn't notice any negative effect. Of course, using the clear color is something I only would consider doing a couple times of year at the most. SLS is not something I would use every day though.
