    Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze:

    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!

        After washing my hair I put the glaze on while in the shower and spread it around the crown of my head. Dont rinse. Comb through when I get out of shower, let air dry. Gives me volume and shine. Tames frizziness. Excellent product. A liitle messy but worth it.

            It's a little messy and stains your hands temporarily but I like the shine it adds to my brown hair.

              Comments about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze:

              This product is easy to use. It's just as described. I use gloves to apply it after I've towel dried then leave it in for at least 20-30 minutes. I have medium "mousey" brown virgin hair so this product works wonders. It makes it deep and shiny. It was also exactly what I needed to match my HaloCouture extensions in color #3. It can feel a little rough during the rinse out but I use a leave in conditioner regularly.

                Really helps to cover up the grey & extend the time between colorings. I've been using this product for several years & am very satisfied with it. It is hard to find & I'm so thankful that ULTA carries it.

                  I love this product - I do admit that it does dry my hair out a bit. To combat this, I add it after my conditioner (and leave both on at the same time). Since I have always left my conditioner in 'anyway', this is just a little extra step for me (adding the product and smoothing it in along with my conditioner). I have never had my hair colored, and find this a very 'cost-saving' way of covering up my gray. :)
