Q: I have super short hair. Can I mix half a bottle of each and save the other halves to mix later to use and because my hair is coarse would it work if I put it on dry hair?

submitted by Sharon - 5 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! The glosses are one time use. Once the bottles are opened, the ingredients in the glosses are only active for about 30 minutes.

submitted by clanoryan - 5 years ago

I initially bought this to even out some bleached streaks in my hair. I have now bought this over 3 times because it's so good! I have natural red hair but it tends to be more muted, so I use this gloss in the Summer months because it adds more depth. It's super easy to use, lasts for a few weeks, and when it fades out of your hair it's so subtle! I will probably continue to use this product for a long time!

Love this gloss! As a gal with light curls I like to do everything I can to preserve them. I do not bleach my hair, nor have I done anything but semi permanent conditioner based dyes, (overtone is my tried and true) but I do love a warmer color in my hair. I have used this gloss twice now and enjoy it each time. Super fast and easy application, fades well and slowly. My hair goes from mousey to auburn, difficult to photograph but so clear irl. As someone already dealing with hair loss, I have experienced less hair loss after using this product, absolutely not more. My only complaint is that I only need about 1/5 of the bottle, so I feel like I’m wasting a ton of product since it apparently doesn’t keep— I so wish the bottles were formulated for multiple uses. Mirror photo is before, peace sign is after.

This does not wash out! I used a box of chocolate cosmo back in January and it has not washed out even with daily shampoos! My hair is still the same shade but now it has a very unnatural, red undertone whereas my virgin hair has warm gold undertones. It looks absolutely awful. I thought this would be a good way to experiment with less permanent shades rather than fully dying it, but I was wrong.

Tried the chocolate color on my light brown hair that was turning brassy. Followed the instructions exactly and now my hair is black and damaged. Not what I was expecting at all. Been washing my hair with dish soap to try and get any of it out and it’s coming out ginger. Do not recommend. I probably need to shave my hair at this point because it is that damaged.

Bittersweet will lean your hair more black than brown. Also the other reviews about hair loss is true! Lost quite a bit of hair just letting this mixture sit for 15 minutes. Be careful! Results are pretty though, but definitely concerning.

I’ve used the smoky topaz twice with subtle results on my balayage (“bronde” in color, roots mid-dark brown)This time, I thought to try the Chocolate Cosmo color as it was the next shade up and matched my roots. Big mistake - my hair is now very dark brown borderline black. The results are nearly identical to those shown for the “Bittersweet” color. While Smoky Topaz was okay, my experience with Chocolate Cosmo means I won’t but again nor do I recommend this product.

Limasierr97 - 23 days ago, Verified purchaser
So first off, I have very healthy hair. I do not treat it with chemicals, and I rarely use heat (like twice in the last 6 months). I bought this hoping for a little bit more shine and pigment, thinking it wouldn’t hurt to try. I used it in my hair about 4 days ago. Applying it in the shower left everything a mess, and despite rinsing the shower as I applied, I still have stains from it. I left it on for the shorter time of 10 minutes. After the shower, I noticed my hair felt pretty dry so I used some of my go to leave in conditioner. I didn’t notice a drastic difference other than a slightly darker tint in the ends of my hair. When I brushed through the hair after air drying, I noticed some fallout. It didn’t raise alarm bells for me then, but it kept happening. I use silk scrunchies, and even with those I would keep getting fallout and breakage. I would run my fingers through my dry hair and get a handful of hairs. I have had this happen like 3 times since then, and my hair feels thinner. I’m looking at having to get a hair cut for my new “layers” I didn’t want to have. Thanks for giving me some hair loss instead of gloss I guess.

yesegarc - 25 days ago, Verified purchaser
I wanted really badly to like this product. I’m a huge Kristin Ess fan and swear by all her products and hair tools. I attempted to use this gloss to correct the color of my hair a bit after reading some reviews and seeing videos where the person’s hair color darkens quite a bit, which was exactly the effect I was looking for. Even the instructions advertise a method for creating an ombré effect so I figured this would be a no brained. I tried this product twice - the first time it didn’t work I blamed myself for not keeping it on long enough. I purchased it again and left it on longer and did the ombré application. I was surprised that my hair looked virtually the same as before, just shinier. Maybe I need to try a darker shade, but I fear it may be too dark. I may have to bite the bullet and just get a toner. If you’re looking to change the color of your hair - this isn’t the right product. But as with most KE products, this one isn’t harsh, it’s easy to use, and left nice shine (gloss) in my hair.

This turned my dark brown hair almost black and basically looked awful. I followed the instructions to the letter. Have never had such a bad at home experience. My hair girl had to fix! I talked to a friend and she had the same issue-be cautious of color. Oh and it didn’t even hydrate my hair or give me shine!

So I don’t usually write reviews anymore but I did for this product. I gave it a chance because some reviews were great, but I should have listened to the ones warning me. I liked the initi outcome at first, but within a few weeks I noticed that it made my hair look so frizzy, broken, and dry. I am so upset because my hair has never looked this bad. My hair is typically very shiny and smooth and this made it look so damaged. I suggest you avoid this at all costs.

I would rate this zero stars if I could. I tried the chocolate cosmo glaze expecting a light warm glaze as described and pictured on the box but when I went to wash and dry my hair was dyed black. More specifically, the front pieces of my hair while the rest were a mix of black and dark brown and a million other shades. I cried after trying to shampoo it out with 30 washes with a clarifying shampoo. It did not budge. My hairdresser had to use a color remover and bleach to lighten the color. Do not recommend unless your wanting black box dye.

I purchased the Chocolate Cosmo thinking I would have a dark brown result. I left the toner on for about 20 minutes as it says, and my hair turned black. Good thing that’s my natural hair color or else this could have been a bigger shock. For anyone wanting to try this color, maybe look into other options. Thankfully it’ll wash out over time. My hair isn’t dry like other reviews say, my hair looks very shiny and soft luckily.

There’s only one brunette shade, so that’s what I got. Easy to use. I have long hair and 1 bottle was plenty. I lightly washed my hair before, as directed bc it was dirty. Applied to wet hair, combed hair and left for 15 minutes. Immediately saw a concerning amount of hair loss when rinsing it out. Again, I JUST washed and combed my hair so this wasn’t typical shedding. After, my hair is shinier but also much much darker. Almost black. I, personally, don’t mind it but I was very surprised. If I didn’t lose so much hair, I would give this 4 stars. (-1 for the intense color change but the clear might have been 5) There’s just no reason for that much hair loss in a single application of a hair care product. You literally had one job. I will not be using this again or recommending it.
