What with Arctic blasts and central heating giving up weather whiplash, the coming of winter can wreak havoc with our hair.
And despite our best efforts, there are always gonna be days when no amount of primping can produce a salon-fresh look, especially when you dye your hair.
Naturally, it’s not a problem that bothers the Victoria’s Secret supermodels, who have hair so luscious you want to reach out and stroke it. But if you’ve ever wondered how the Angels keep their manes in tip-top condition, we have news.
Jason Hogan, a colourist at Josh Wood, has the lowdown on exactly how you can achieve a glossy, voluminous mane a la headline angels Romee Strijd, Stella Maxwell and Martha Hunt.
So what exactly is a hair gloss?
Used in-between hair dyeing, a gloss is a treatment that ensures your colour stays vibrant and doesn’t fade unevenly.”I describe it like a topcoat of paint for your nails,” explains Josh. “It’s a sheer coat of haircolour protecting the work we have done and giving lustre”.
Working a hair gloss into your existing haircare routine has other benefits, too. As well as colour correction, the treatment helps enhance natural shine, just the glossy, vibrant manes of the VS models.
So just how often should you gloss?
“I recommend clients come in for a gloss every 6-8 weeks inbetween colour appointments to keep that haircolour singing and the tone in check” says Josh.
With beauty maintenance on the up for party season, keeping our locks looking lustrous is trickier than ever. But a hair gloss will extend the life of your colour, without splashing out on follow-ups to the salon.
“To anyone heading out this party season or to any event a clear gloss just before adds exceptional shine & smoothness, this helps the hair capture light better in photographs”.
