Description

I always recommend that my clients come to get glossed and toned
between salon visits to extend the life of their color. I’m finally able
to give them, and you, something that is easy to use at home. This
in-shower treatment is formulated to instantly boost vibrancy and
shine, while neutralizing warmth on color treated or natural light
blonde hair. It will help you keep your color looking fresh, shiny and
healthy between appointments.

Choose this color if you have light blonde hair and want to neutralize or tone down warmth.

HOW TO:
(Read all instructions thoroughly before glossing your hair)
1. wet your hair thoroughly in the shower.
2. mix bottle 1 and 2 together, shake gently and apply all over.
3. wait 10-20 minutes, depending on the result you want, then rinse thoroughly.
4. shampoo and condition as usual.

VIBRANCY BOOSTING TECHNOLOGY:
Creates a protective shield over the hair to instantly boost shine and help lock-in your color.

ANTI-OXIDANT COMPLEX:
Smooths and softens hair from root to tip making hair more manageable.

ALKALINE NEUTRALIZING SYSTEM:
Protects from color fading by preventing hard water minerals from being deposited onto the hair and scalp.

LET’S TALK…

WHO NEEDS THIS?
anyone with light blonde hair
looking to tone down warmth and
enhance shine.

WHAT IS IT?
in-shower treatment that nourishes
strands and restores vibrancy.

WHEN DO I USE IT?
in-between salon visits or any time
your hair color looks too warm
or “brassy”.

WILL IT COVER gray HAIR?
ammonia-free formula will not lift,
lighten or cover grays.

IS IT PERMANENT?
color lasts 3-4 weeks and will
gradually fade, depending on how often you shampoo.

Color + keratin safe.
Single application.

Q: Does Kristin Ess Signature Hair Gloss have a strong smell? I'm sensitive to fragrance.

submitted by Rivergirl - 4 years ago
  • A: No, it was not bad at all. I used it and then went to bed and I did not wake up all night to a WEIRD smell as I would when I used hair dye. there is, of course a smell while you are using it, while it is on your head, but it is not "fumey" and not horrible. You are instructed to wash your hair after rinsing the product out, so that may be why the lingering smell was not strong or bad.

    submitted byCanyon Gal - 4 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! The Signature Hair Glosses do not have any added fragrance and will not have a lingering smell once rinsed out.

submitted by KR - 4 years ago
  • A: No it does not cover grey.

    submitted bySp - 4 years ago
  • A: Thanks for the question! Our Signature Gloss does not cover grays. Hope this helps!

  • A: The box says it will not cover grays but I used it for the first time tonight, left it on the full 20 min, and it does seem to have helped quite a bit with my greys

Q: my hair is auburn with a few gray strands will the gloss color the gray strands

Q: I'm a natural re head and want to tone down the warmth. Would Winter Wheat be appropriate/safe to try?

submitted by Mum23 - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! We would strongly advise to stay within your color family when using our toning glosses. The Winter Wheat is recommended for light blonde hair and will likely not have any affect on your red hair. We would suggest our Purple Shampoo and Conditioner to help tone the brassiness. Hope this helps!

    submitted byKristin Ess Hair - 2 years ago

  • A: Hello Mum23! Winter Wheat is best if you have light blonde hair and want to neutralize or tone down warmth. We hope this helps!

Q: I've been using the celestial skies conditioner & I'd like to switch to pink/purple. Im interested in the wild berry gloss. I'm worried that it might look terrible because Celestial Skies fades in my hair to a greenish brown. Any recommendations/advice?

submitted by Ellie H - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! We highly recommend allowing the Celestial Skies shade to fade completely before applying our toning gloss. The Wild Berry is formulated for brown hair and for the best results, it is highly advised to ensure the base is brown prior to using this specific toning gloss. Hope this helps!

    submitted byKristin Ess Hair - 2 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: Hi Ellie H! This gloss will enhance and tone your hair color in between visits to the salon or dying it at home.

submitted by How long dose it last - 4 years ago

Q: I touched up my roots--but now they are orangish. Will Winter Wheat gloss act more like a toner to eliminate that? I know it won't cover gray or add highlights--I would just like to get rid of the orange tones at my roots.

submitted by JanReviews - 4 years ago
  • A: Mixing a bit of purple dye (like Manic Panic brand "Ultra Violet") into your conditioner and using this on your orange roots after shampooing may help. I've used this mixture for 2 years to tone down my blonde hair if it gets brassy. Be conservative with the amount of dye you use. The color of your dye/conditioner mixture should be between a light and medium purple - not dark purple.

    submitted byVickie - 4 years ago
  • A: I did the same thing! Just reviewed this. It helps a little with that! Try it.. it definitely muted the orange/warmth a bit.

    submitted byCaroline - 4 years ago

Q: also — if you don’t use the entire bottle, can you keep what’s left for another use? or do you need to throw it out?

submitted by nikki - 5 years ago
  • A: You can get two or more uses out of one bottle. I always split it, since one bottle is a lot for my hair and I don’t want the product to go to waste. Don’t save if already mixed! I use a mixing bowl, put half bottle of the gloss and half of the ‘developer’, then apply on wet hair with a coloring brush. Just like you would with any box dye. Phenomenal results every time, such a great product. Love it, can’t live without it!

    submitted byJK - 4 years ago
  • A: You've got an hour from the time you mix to the time you ought to throw it out because the active ingredients are no longer ...well... active. So, in short, just use up the bottle on your hair because you can't save it for another application a few weeks later.

    submitted byKaityC - 5 years ago

Q: Are all of Kristin Ess products vegan or animal cruelty free?

submitted by Annabee1335 - 5 years ago
  • A: Yes, her line is cruelty free! As far as vegan idk. If you follow her on Instagram she will most likely answer. She has responded to all of my questions so far.

    submitted byKatie - 5 years ago
  • A: All of the products are animal cruelty free!

    submitted byCR - 5 years ago

Q: I am blonde by heavy weave, but not platinum. Just got my hair done but it's warmer than I like. Will the platinum color gloss help brighten a cool without making my hair dingy like purple shampoo?

submitted by HNR - 10 days ago
  • A: Thank you for your question! The Signature Hair Gloss in the shade Platinum is formulated to instantly boost vibrancy and shine while neutralizing warmth. It works best on ultra light shades of natural or color treated hair to tone down warmth and gives blonde hair a brighter appearance. Hope this helps!

This hair gloss did absolutely nothing for my hair in regard to shininess. Spend the little extra $$ to get your hair glossed in a salon or use another at-home hair gloss product. I usually wouldn’t make a review about a product I didn’t like, but this truly felt like a waste of money and honestly dried my hair out more than anything :/

I tried the chocolate cosmo to tone my brassy caramel brown highlights and it turned my hair black! All the work and money I’ve spent at the hair salon to lighten my hair has now gone completely down the drain. On top of that my hair has been falling out ever sincerity and it doesn’t seem to be fading at all. Do not use unless you want dry black hair. Lesson learned.

So I tried this thinking a gloss toner would just do that add shine and possibly tone my hair. It dyed like dyed my hair super dark. I tried the Chocolate cosmo and it’s permanent. I wasn’t expecting to had been dying my hair very misleading and disappointing. I am very agitated at company for lying about there product. On bright side did add shine with 5 shades darker to my hair.

This has got to be the best hair product I have ever tried. I used chocolate cosmo and my hair is so glossy and rich looking. It really transformed my hair from lifeless looking to having body. I got sooooo many compliments on my hair. I had a coworker ask me to send her the name of the product ASAP. I will definitely be incorporating this product into my hair care routine

I was excited to try Kristin Ess's Signature Hair Gloss, but it disappointed me. I followed the directions and left it on for 20 minutes, hoping it would get the best results. While I was applying the mixed solutions, I smelled the faint scent of alcohol. (Unfortunately, I didn't look at the ingredients like usual.) After washing and conditioning, I blow-dried my hair as usual. I immediately noticed how dry my hair felt; the ends looked almost fried. I have never had dry hair before, and I was shocked that one use would dry it out so badly. I don't feel like it did anything in the way of shine. I eventually looked at the box and saw that the second ingredient on the list was alcohol, and it is listed three times! I realize now why my hair got so dried out. Needless to say, I will not be purchasing this product again, and I won't skip checking the ingredients in the future!

Marketing Misleading PEROXIDE CAN CAUSE DAMAGE

3 out of 5 stars
C - 20 days ago, Verified purchaser
Extremely disappointed that this product markets itself as a damage free product when it contains peroxide. This product says what it’s gonna do for the most part but I shouldn’t have had to go to the FAQ of the product after I’d already applied it to realize this contains peroxide, which is damaging to your hair even if it’s not ammonia. I did do some research on it but all the reviews were glowing and I bought this as an alternative to dpHue which has no peroxide or ammonia thinking this would be a similar color depositing product and didn’t take as much time researching as I usually do. Hair definitely looked slightly more damaged than before I used it, I had waited the full 20 minutes bc the site stresses that you get the best results that way but would’ve left it on for shorter if I’d realized

Loved this for making my dyed dark brown hair darker again and taking out unwanted warm tones. I dyed my hair dark brown and it faded within weeks and was showing orangey red tones and this gloss made it look like when i first dyed it! Be conscious of which shade you’re choosing and you’ll love the results.

I’m so confused because I thought I had bought this in the past, but what I bought in the past (from the same spot in my store) was clear and just made your hair shiny. This turned my hair black lol. I think it’ll fade quickly, and thankfully I’m an emo girlie but… wow, I did not want to dye my hair tonight and that’s what happened.

Really wanted to like this product but honestly it didn’t meet my expectations. It made my hair feel nice but similar to a hair mask. It only lasted 2 days until i washed my hair again. Definitely wasn’t worth it for the plain gloss one without color. Would consider trying the brown toner just to see if it works.
