A glaze is a semi-permanent color that can be used to enhance both natural and colored hair. A quality glaze should not only make the hair look healthy and shiny, but it should also have some added conditioning benefits with cumulative effects. My choice for the last 20 plus years has always been Sebastian Cellophanes. I absolutely love Cellophanes because no matter what shade I use, from Clear to Cranberry, the result is always a high sheen, glossy finish. What is also great about Cellophanes, and often sets them apart from the rest of the Glaze world, is that they contain conditioning ingredients like soy and wheat protein: the pH balancing properties of wheat amino acids and special UV light inhibitors that improve hair’s condition and integrity. Additionally, Cellophanes do not contain any peroxide or ammonia so they can be used on even the most delicate and damaged hair types. The hues are translucent, allowing for color dimension to be preserved and enhanced. I also love to use Cellophanes for grey blending on my clients who don’t like their greys, but also don’t want to commit to monthly touch ups. Glazes fade gradually off the hair within 4 to 8 weeks depending on your shampooing habits. This makes them the perfect choice for people who want to experiment with color without having to commit to constant upkeep. And for all of you color divas out there, Cellophanes are the perfect choice to lock down your colored cuticle and seal in the shine. Glazes will not only add sheen to your existing color, but they will also enhance and preserve your color, dramatically reducing fadage and protecting your investment. In my world, all glazes are not created equaUSebastian Cellophanes are far superior to most glazing products out there. That’s why 20 years later I am still raving about them and loving each result!
