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 adding deep burgundy tone to color treated or naturally brown hair. It will help you keep your color looking fresh, shiny and healthy between appointments.

Choose this color if you have dark hair and want to add a rich burgundy tone.

How to:
(read all instructions thoroughly before glossing your hair)
1. wet hair thoroughly in the shower.
2. mix bottles 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 looking to add burgundy tones + 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 needs a boost.

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.

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 - 11 months 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!

    submitted byTarget Beauty Consulting - 11 months ago
    Brand expert
  • 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!

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 - 1 year 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!

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

submitted by Rivergirl - 3 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 - 3 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.

Q: How long dose this dye work until it washes out?

submitted by How long dose it last - 3 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! The Signature Hair Gloss lasts between 3-4 weeks depending on how often you wash your hair. This will help extend the life of your color in between your hair appointments.

    submitted byKristin Ess Hair - 3 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: According to their online site, 3-4 weeks depending on how frequently you wash your hair. I'm just using for the first time.

Q: would like to do a test b/4 applying to all my hair. what is the ratio of mixes so I can mix a small amount? if the product only last 30 minutes after mixing, it would not still be good after drying.

submitted by Cbass885 - 12 days ago
  • A: Hello If you are doing a strand test or have short hair, you can get a separate applicator bottle or container, mix half or 1 tablespoon (for strand test) of each bottle, then screw the lids back on and save the products. But once the color is mixed it's only good for about 30 minutes. You'll also want to ensure the lids are back on tight since the gloss can oxidize and you may not get the optimum results. Hope this helps!

Q: If I have highlights will it lift my dark natural roots? I'm looking for a non lifting product.

submitted by Ghan725 - 14 days ago
  • A: Hello Ghan725 Our Signature Hair Gloss can not lift the natural hair color. Our toning glosses are intended to add shine, tone the hair and either neutralize or add warmth to the hair and can not lighten the hair. I hope this helps!

Q: I might be allergic to PPD. Should I do a patch test on my skin? I wasn't planning to apply the gloss to my scalp, just the parts that need to be toned. Thank you,

submitted by sosman - 29 days ago
  • A: Hello Sosman, We're happy to help. Please note that our Signature Hair Gloss is PPD free, therefore, a patch may not be needed.

Q: leftover product stability?

submitted by Lor lor - 1 month ago
  • A: Hello, The glosses are for one-time use only. Once the color is mixed it's only good for about 30 minutes. For short hair and to get two uses out of the gloss, you can get a separate applicator bottle, mix half of each of the bottles into it, then immediately screw the lids back on and save the other half for another time. Make sure to tighten the unused portion because if air gets in for an extended period, the gloss will oxidize and you won't get any result from it the second time you use it. Hope this helps!

Q: can you use this if you don't color your hair, I am mostly gray with some of my natural dark brown hair underneath. What shade would I choose?

submitted by Shep - 3 months ago
  • A: Hi Shep Good news is, you have options! If you’re looking to maintain your natural color and grays and you want to boost shine without adding any color, go with the Crystal Quartz gloss! It’s colorless and won’t alter your natural color. If you’re interested in using something with pigment, it would depend on several factors. Would you be able to upload a photo of your hair color here so we can help you select the right shade? If you’re not comfortable adding a photo here, please reach out to customerservice@kristinesshair.com and we can help you via email.

I bought the copper penny version of this product. Application: this stuff is so messy and staining. My shower, my towels, my scalp, all of it is stained the most awful gatorade orange. I thought since it was an in-shower product it may be less messy, but god I never want to do that again. The smell is also so so strong. Rinse: I feel like this made my hair more dry because of how long I had to rinse it. It still stained my towel. Dry/color payoff: Before my hair was about a warm level 8 with a warm level 7 root. Even with lathering the life out of my hair, this didn't do anything to my hair except for the very top of my head. So now I look like someone poured ketchup over me. Overall I think this product is a waste of money. There are just better glosses out there. It's a shame this is the only one availble at Target, the convenience would have been nice.

rachel - 8 days ago, Verified purchaser
Got this to test out reddish hair before committing to a professional color! Did not have any sticky residue or dryness. I have medium brown hair with some leftover lighter ends from a balayage. This would have worked better if all my hair was lightened, or none of it. The blonde money pieces turned out very orange and brassy, but I'll try toning those bits down with a purple shampoo. I do like the auburn color it gave to the rest of my hair. Application was a bit messy, but I was able to wash drips off my sink and arms without staining. Didn't stain my skin around my hairline too badly, I imagine it'll wash the rest of the way off in my next shower. Interested to see how long it lasts!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The color looked absolutely beautiful and that’s what made me super excited to want to try it but unfortunately I was devastated upon delivery because somehow during transport and delivery it was smashed and crushed open so when I received it I was sad that I couldn’t try it there was none left in the bottle but I will say that the bright vibrant red color looked absolutely beautiful I would most definitely like to try this Kristen Ess Ruby hair color again because I love color my hair and Red/ Burgundy are my go to colors

The Smokey topaz did an amazing job at toning down my bright blonde that I hated. However I have some parts near the front of my head that came out with a pink tint, so now I need to go to the hair salon anyway to fix that. I don’t know why it happened.

This gloss works and it works little too well! I did it last night on wet hair that I did wash a little since I was my hair every 4 days or so. I made a giant mess and did it outside the shower and had no trouble cleaning it up. I did the copper and a few months ago I had blonde and red highlights put in. I washed it, conditioned it and rinsed it a ton. Once I finished putting it in (which took probably 20 minutes) I went ahead and washed it out then blow dried it. Here’s before and after pictures

Review - 23 days ago, Verified purchaser
Love this product! I’m growing out my highlights and wanted to go browner with my highlights to transition back to natural color. I used smoky topaz and turned out super good. Just for reference for anyone debating whether to use this or Biolage Color balm when toning down blonde to more of a bronde. Do not use the biolage it turned my hair bright orange last summer. It was awful and wouldn’t wash out. I had to dye my hair completely blonde to get rid of the orange. Please keep selling/making this gloss. Leaves my hair shiny, healthy and a pretty color!

I bought this a couple weeks ago thinking it would maybe give me an ashy light brown for a few days. I left it on for 15-20 min in the shower and was so pleasantly surprised with this gorgeous toned brown! Went from grown-out light blonde to this nice ashy dark brown. Even better — it’s lasted almost three weeks!
