There are certain homemade deep conditioners available to make hair shiny, but hair glossing gives faster and more convenient results by increasing the natural shine of the hair.
Hair gloss penetrates hair rather than just coating the hair shaft. Hair gloss when applied to colored or highlighted hair adjusts the color tone. Hair glossing can be done even after shampooing or conditioning. Semi-permanent or Demi-permanent dye is applied by coating the individual hair strands.

The hair gloss can be retained for a maximum period of 20 minutes before final rinse. In some cases the hair gloss is warmed with the help of hair dryer before it is washed off. The effects of a hair gloss treatment last for approximately two to four weeks. It is the panacea for hair that has been damaged due to sun, pollution or chlorine water.
