Madison Reed's Gloss Will Add Shine and Multifaceted Tone to Your Haircolor {Review}

Sunday, July 26, 2015

I received a Madison Reed Semi-permanent Gloss in Miele in order to facilitate an honest review; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

If you've been reading the blog for a while, you know that I'm a fan of Madison Reed's products. They recently came out with a new product, a semi-permanent Gloss, that I was eager to try. 

I've tried 2 other glosses, and they did just what they were supposed to do: Make your hair super-glossy. That's fine, but I wasn't all that impressed. They were too expensive for the little they did. When I saw Madison Reed's Gloss line I was excited to see that it boasts a clear, plus 7 different tones to choose from to help enhance your color. 

I have a warm skin tone and eye color, but a cool shade in my hair. I've been curious to see if warming up my hair tone wouldn't look much better overall, so I picked out the shade Miele, a rich honey tone to add warmth and dimension to brunette hair.

From the website:

"Designed to enhance color, add tone, and boost shine. Easy to apply and gives your hair rich, beautiful depth. Used by salons to make your hair softer and shinier. Semi-permanent gloss lasts up to 8 washes. Available in 7 tones, plus clear. You can easily add vibrancy to any hair type - color treated or natural!"

One of my favorite things about Madison Reed is that you order it and they deliver. I reviewed their custom home Haircolor Kit here and their Root Touch Up compact here.

The gloss arrived quickly and came with a set of gloves. I like that they're nice sturdy gloves and not those cheap ones that usually split at the seams and get dye in-between your fingers.

The gloss came in a tube with a pointed applicator tip. There's no mixing, just squeeze and massage in.

This tube will do 2 applications for shoulder-length hair and 1 application for long hair. I applied it and timed it and rinsed it out. I did a before/after inside (it was a gloomy day), and you can't see the tone very well, but you can absolutely see the glossy shine and the condition of my hair.

I also did some photos outside so you can see the warmth that was added to my color.

My hair color is usually pretty flat-looking. It's one solid color unless my grey roots are coming in, but I can see some lighter striping now that really kicks up the dimension.

So overall I was really pleased with the results. What kept me from trying a honey-brown dye is that I thought it would be too drastic, and what if I didn't like it? I love that just adding the honey tone was simple, inexpensive, and low-key and that the condition of my hair was better than when I started. Another A+ product.
