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.

Cons

  • Doesn't Cover Up Greys

Best Uses

  • Add Gloss To Hair

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

I ordered the product after reading about how some people use it to cover greys instead of using permanent hair color dyes. I have black hair, and I dye my hair regularly (every 4-6 weeks) to cover up my greys. My grey is predominantly around the hairlines and I dye frequently to cover up the roots. I was looking for anything that would prolong the in-between-period between the dye jobs.

I've only been using the product a week (2x so far), but it does little to cover up my grey roots. Maybe b/c my hair is black and the white is too much of a contrast? I've used it two ways... per the instruction on wet hair (for 10min) and on dry hair (for 10min). I feel the colorant works better on dry hair (i.e. color adheres to my hair strands better).

One great thing about the product is that it gave my hair shine and smelt great. My hair was starting to lose its luster from years of chemical dyes. The colorant gave my hair back some shine and made it soft to the touch. The smell was not unpleasant either.

      I use this product to extend the time between coloring my hair. I can go 6 to 8 weeks without recoloring if i use this every 3 days or so.

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

      I've been using this product for several years to cover grey in my dark brown hair and add a bit of vibrancy overall, and have never found any other temporary product that compares.

      It leaves grey/white hairs more coppery (and less brunette) than I would like, but I get quite a few compliments on my hair color, which didn't happen before I started using this. It IS much nicer to have glimmery, reddish highlights than to have grey hairs contrasting starkly against the brown--though I would really prefer a darker brown result.

      I do not find this product effective when used according to the instructions. I use it before conditioning (since as a last step, it leaves my hair too dry), like to leave it on for at least 20 minutes so it really works, and then mix a little more with my conditioner to seal in the color.

      I have found that it must be applied with gloves, because it stains hands and nails.

        I love it, it extends my time between colorings . It is a little messy and stains your hands if you don't wash with soap immediately.

            I started using the color glaze by John Frieda about a year ago when I began using the John Frieda hair color kit. I use the glaze about every third to fourth wash. It helps to maintain the color once the kit is used, helps colorize new roots coming in, and adds wonderful body and shine. A bottle goes a long way so it is well worth the investment. The color glaze should be used in conjunction with a conditioner of your choice.

                I have used this several times and haven't noticed a change. Just going to try to use it up. I have thick, longer hair and I like to have enough product to work into my hair. A little of this product does not go a long way for me, so I need quite a lot for my longer hair. Bottle should be used up soon. I see no shine difference or silky difference.

                  I do color my hair; the color fades with time. This product gives s nice sheen but the 2-3 times a week for 3 minutes each time does not fit well with my morning schedule. I thought this was a monthly-use product when I bought it. Nothing awful about it just not for me.

                          This is the perfect temporary color. I use it when I swim, to add color back that the chlorine strips from my hair.
