Beauty Product of the Week: Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse

What is it? Frederic Fekkai's Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse "is a clear shine rinse inspired by professional salon glazing services. The rinse-off treatment binds shine, recharges color, and adds silkiness to the hair. This non-chemical formula contains a unique blend of conditioning and lightweight silicones that coat the cuticle to shine and condition the hair shaft. With its lightweight formula, Salon Glaze won't weigh your hair down like traditional shine serums. It works on all hair colors and types, and both non-colored and color-treated hair." Available at Sephora for $28.00

What did you think? I got a free sample of this product and was anxious to give it a try. I followed the directions and tried this out three times. The first time, I felt like my hair was a bit softer and more manageable than usual. But was there more shine? No. At least not that I noticed. I asked one of my co-workers if she thought my hair was shinier and she said no. Not the response I was hoping to get.

Disappointed, I tried the product two more times. I didn't notice any more shine. For $28.00, a salon glaze shine product should produce more shimmer. I should have people ask me what I've done differently. My hair should look dramatically better. After three test runs, I never got the results I was after or would have expected from a "prestige" hair product like this. Thank god for samples!

The final verdict? Save your money. Seriously. You'll thank me for this advice! Of course, if you've tried this product and LOVED it, please leave me a comment and let me know.

I agree with your review. I tried the glaze and my hair actually looked worse than before the treatment. Definitel save your money and don't waste it on this product.

I'm sure you can get a better clear rinse at a lower price. I think even Clairol has a "cellophane" rinse that will not be as disappointing. Ugh, I hate when things don't work and you spend a pretty penny.

wow, i was so surprised to read your review!

i purchased the glaze as a last resort, hopeless effort at having "special occasion" hair for graduation, and while the results were not drastic, over time my hair definitely became shinier and developed a mirror-like sheen.
Perhaps your hair is already this shiny! ;)
anyways, im pretty sure that this product is one that is meant to deliver on a long-term basis.

I was very pleased with the shine it gave my hair. I have never used a shine product before, so was very pleased with the results, highly reccomend.

I was really excited to love this, but i thought it was a waste of money. I couldn't tell if it worked or not! I just finished the bottle after using it for a couple months, and i'd say it didn't do squat. I'm going back to John Frieda color glaze, it's cheaper and works!
