There’s nothing like the look of just-colored hair – the vibrant color and slick shine are hard to replicate, to the point that you wish you could get it done on a regular basis! Of course that would damage your locks, which is why I’m loving the new John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss. Use this once a week in the shower, and you’ll get the boost of color and glossy shine that you normally only see after a visit to the salon. Each tube comes with six treatments, so it’s about $2 each which is well worth it considering how much we spend on our hair.
There are only six options to choose from (three colors, each available in a warm and cool tones), but since this isn’t a dye job, a perfect match with your hue isn’t necessary – just pick blonde, brunette, or red. You work the gloss through your hair post-conditioner, leave it in for three minutes (just the right amount of time for a body scrub!), rinse, and you’re ready to go. Unlike with dyes that could stain, there’s no mess to clean up. The instant shine will make stepping out of the shower feel like stepping out of the salon! On drugstore.com for $11.99.
