        I really was very skeptical that this would be a product that would work. But it did. Dang it! I was wrong! And if I am wrong I don't want to be right! This was a great find for me. I have thick hair and it does not take color very well or at least color of any kind does not last in my hair long. This is something I can use on a regular basis and it is very gentile and doesn't smell too bad. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good touch up product.

        Does wonders for my frizzy hair!

            Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze:

            My Hair: virgin, dark brown, wavy-straight. I have dark brown roots, medium brown ends with golden/red highlights, and a smattering of white hairs that I've had since age 12. I actually love my natural color, but not the white hairs and frizz.

            I use this glaze almost every time I wash my hair. I find it tends to even out my hair color. It lightens my roots, darkens my ends, and makes my white hairs a little less stark (although it definitely does NOT cover them). None of this is dramatic, but I can tell there's a slight difference.

            What's much more noticeable is the change in my hair texture. This glaze really helps tame my frizz without feeling heavy, greasy, or filmy. My hair is softer - and even straighter - without losing any volume. The smoothing effect alone makes this product worth using for me.

            I have only two complaints: 1) It tones down my natural highlights and makes my color more uniform. 2) It stains my shower if I don't treat spots immediately.

              I used to use this product 6-7 years ago to cover grays at my bangs and top of my head. It was AWESOME & my favorite, go-to product. I didn't have to do real dyeing as often... oh I loved that. :) Then it disappeared. I couldn't find it anywhere & I was crushed , and even just perplexed.... I didn't know of another similar product, so John Frieda had the market cornered on this one I thought. How could they discontinue it??? Now today I'm perusing the ULTA website desperately looking for something similar (I have another product right now that cost me $30 and it literally does nothing), and not only do I see it here, but also a similar product that is made by ULTA. This seems too good to be true. Needless to say I will buying this from ULTA, and if it doesn't work as well as it used to , I will give the ULTA brand a try. I t got pretty good reviews for covering grays as well. (It's called ULTA Color Enhance Glaze, fyi). Hope this helps you

                Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze:

                I'm generally that girl who relies heavily on product reviews before trying something new, but I'm so bad about actually putting reviews out there for others. After using this product, I decided I had to pay it forward and spread the good news. I have naturally light brown hair that turns blond at the ends, especially after spending the summer in the sun. Compound that with old highlights that I'm trying to grow out and my hair had a lovely, dull, balayage effect (NOT in a good way). I've been avoiding coloring my hair, as my hair ALWAYS pulls red, but I was dying to darken the blond ends. I had been using Schwarzkopf Igora mousse, but it takes forever (20 min processing time for anything noticeable) and barely makes a difference. Enter, John Frieda. I had my reservations, as I've heard mixed things about the brilliant brunette products, but I figured it was better than nothing. Used this product yesterday for the first time and I'm in love. For one, it's very easy to use and doesn't take forever to rinse out like the Schwarzkopf product. I left it in for the minimum processing time (3 mins) and when I rinsed, the water ran clear from the beginning. A good sign that my hair absorbed every last drop. It smells great and added some nice thickness and shine to my hair. After blow drying, my hair has a beautiful sheen and more importantly, it's more uniform in color! OK, it's not a miracle product, as my ends are still lighter than the top of my hair, but it looks so much more natural and healthy! I'm so happy with this product and can't wait to see the results after continued use with longer processing times. If you want to add shine and a color boost to your hair and don't want to go through dying it, this is the product for you!

                • Q:

                  I am growing out my hair that has been colored, in hopes of having virgin hair again. I have very dark roots that are growing out. The bottom half of my hair is brassy and faded due to me not coloring it. Will this product make the brassiness worse? I am looking for something semi permanent/ temporary to blend my natural hair in with the old color until it is grown out.

                    John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze is not permanent hair color. It will not lift or lighten your hair color. It is ammonia- and peroxide-free. It adds a hint of brown color plus enhances shine.
