Shiny Summer Hair: How To Get It, How To Keep It

July 24, 2009 by SheFindsSusannah

I started fretting about my dull, dry hair a while ago, and this week I more or less fixed the problem with a fancy glaze from Sharon Dorram Color, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.  A glaze is a quicker and less extreme treatment than a dye job; it boosts your natural hair color and lays down a layer of shine (which can be clear or lightly colored) on top of the hair shaft.  And in theory, the glossy look should last until my hair grows out, but just like with dyed hair, it needs to be treated right.  So in the interest of protecting my newly shiny locks with the best-stocked arsenal of products, I got a few recommendations from the salon.

1. To begin, get clean with a color-protecting shampoo. I like Nexxus Dualiste Color Protection Intense Hydration Shampoo ($15) because, in addition to saving the glaze, it helps keep my super-dry hair moisturized.

2. To keep the glaze intact and give the hair itself plenty of nutrients, skip normal conditioner for a full-on masque.  Kérastase’s Masque Chroma Riche ($50) contains UV filters and vitamin E, which will guard your color treatment from the sun.

3. Once you head out, give your hair the equivalent of a layer of sunscreen with Pureology Antifade Complex Styling Lotion ($18) which contains a full range of UVA/UVB protectors, so even a full day at the beach won’t do damage.

4. Lastly, if a New York salon visit just isn’t in your schedule, you can intensify your natural hair color and get shiny by taking a gander at an at-home glaze.  We’d recommend Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse ($28) which does a good job of boosting color and adding some gloss to your strands.

Even if you don’t need to protect treated hair from the sun, make sure you’re up on all the best that summer beauty has to offer.
