I've used many options to cover my grey. This product says it's for brunettes, confusing, because it's FABULOUS for grey hair. I colored my hair permanently for years, then when I turned 90% grey, started dying all over blonde, with highlights and lowlights added. Expensive! Bothersome! I saw this product on drugstore.com when I was searching for temporary colors that don't use peroxide or amonia. I was skeptical, but ordered anyway. To my pleasant surprise, it is by far the best prouct I've ever used for covering grey hair. I've applied twice so far... you can leave it on for much longer than the 3-minute suggestion, if desired. My hair looks like $200 professional coloring. Confused as to why the makers do not market it as a grey cover, like similar products. I intend to use this product forever... have to sign off now so I can order about 10 bottles; I never want to run out.

I have used this product 3 times so far, each use left on for about 5 minutes. I have not noticed a difference in my hair at all, and the few gray hairs I have around my temples and top of my head are still showing. I was disappointed with this product because I believed by the 3rd use I would at least see less grays and shinier hair. In fact, it left my hair feeling a little dry. I don't see the point of this product. I did give it 2 stars because it was really easy to use and it didn't stain my hands despite some of the negative comments about the stains.

      Wear gloves unless you enjoy henna palms! Apply as conditioner, leave in at least 5 minutes, rinse, wait for compliments! It transforms the gray into a stunning hair color, but doesn't seem to mess with the natural color.

      Although it's a temporary product, it lasts long enough to not be a bother. Also, it gives a much more interesting color mix than any permanent dye.

        Shampoo hair, remove excess water, add conditioner and evenly distribute. Add small amount(s) of the liquid shine glaze in palm of hands and spread, then begin working into roots and hair. Repeat steps until you have adequately covered hair. Use a vent brush and starting at ends of hair brush until products are evenly distributed through hair. Leave on hair for approximately 7 mins., then rinse until water clear. Hair will feel very silky. Dry and use Organix Moroccan for added lustre using a nylon bristle styling brush.

        Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Luminous Color Glaze for All Brunettes, 6.5 oz:

        I used one of the only non-permanent hair coloring I could find for 10 years. Suddenly, I became allergic to this product, just when I was grayest. I refused to go grey but could not find another option. Most of these hair dyes caution that you should test for reactions prior to using it, every time you use it. Most also state that if you've ever had a reaction to any hair dyes, don't try another color or brand. This JF Liquid Shine product is not a dye, it is a stain containing several ingredients that are also consumed as foods. It is gentle, quick and convenient to use, smells nice and doesn't require a developer. However, it must be used 2-3 times a week to keep the color deep enough. My grey hair will sometimes lighten to a coppery red if I shampoo without staining after I shampoo and condition. The stain only takes 5 mins. I apply 4-5 dime sized amounts to towel dried hair after washing and conditioning. First to top/front sides, then to top front/center,then both sides above ears, the back section, and sometimes a second application to front sides or top.

          I love this product. It gives great shine and refreshes my color between coloring. It gives my hair body and makes it easy to style. I currently use Clairol Loving Care permanent color but this is a super pick me up in between. I use it in the shower following shampooing and leave it on several minutes before rinsing it out. I don't have any trouble at all removing it from my hands following application. I just soap my hands and it removes easily. My hair is straight and fine and this product enhances my texture.

          Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Luminous Color Glaze for All Brunettes, 6.5 oz:

          The results of applying to hair that used to be dark blonde but now has substantial gray has to be seen to be believed! It looks like a $1,000 hair-shading transformation. The gray is softened to a soft light blonde, the regular color is enhanced. But I did learn to keep a pair of gloves in the shower because getting the stuff off my hands took and act of God and congress!

          I reached the stage that an over-all hair coloring was more bother than pleasure, but I wish there were some way to make this a permanant dye. The result on the gray is unbelievable! But it does wash out eventually--but a reapplication takes care of that.

          The gray that grows in after the cycle is reaching its end just doesn't pop out and scream "boo" but seems to blend right in with the normal color. Even my stylist was impressed!

          Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Luminous Color Glaze for All Brunettes, 6.5 oz:

          I highly recommend this product. I don't usually write reviews, but wanted to for this one. the top of my hair is silvery gray and I wanted to stop coloring my hair.... I wore wigs until my gray completely grew out and then I had silver on top and gray/brunette on the bottom. I decided to make it sort of a "look" and did not want to color the top again and have gray "roots again. So I bought this product just to try it, and I am thrilled. It has changed the silver on top to a beautiful shade of natural looking blond that I love. My family and friends love the look... and the bottom brunette/gray part looks a lot better too. I will continue to use this product ..... I have had a little trouble finding it locally, but have found a spot and can always buy it here online to replenish my supply. I recommend this product highly. I have not noticed any greasiness or flatness and I have slightly greasy hair anyway.

          For best usage, wash and condition hair. With conditioner still in hair, comb through knots until hair combs free; rinse conditioner out blot hair for minimal moisture. Apply small amounts to roots, bulk of hair, and ends and leave in for 3 mins. or longer if desired. Rinse hair until water is clear. Blow dry and style. I find using a bristle style brush helps bring out the natural oils to intensify shine.

            This is a great product if the grays are creeping in but you are just not ready to commit to the monthly permanent color treatment route (and expense).
