What Exactly is a Glosser?
A glosser is a translucent color used on the hair after a previous lightening service to help cancel warm tones and blend colors for a softer result. Glossers are used on most lightening services, such as a Balayage or Ombre to cancel warm tones such as red, orange, and gold.

A product by Redken called Shades EQ, is one of the most popular glossers used by hairdressers. These glossers are translucent, add shine, cancel warm tones, and can last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. A glosser will fade gradually and help blend the unwanted warmth brought on by previously highlighted hair as we discussed in our previous blog: "Everything is Blonder in Texas"
