This product is great for touch ups. I have a lot of gray and usually redo my roots every four to six weeks. I also have highlights so this product works to blend my hair and not harsh on the color. Only thing is I wished the nozzle was pointed for precise application. I do use a glove not to stain my hands and I use it as recommended and apply about twice a week over the sink not in shower.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't Like it
I bought this product based on the reviews. I do not see how anyone could like this. It is really messy, and stains if you don't get it off your hands a.s.a.p. You have to use it everytime you wash your hair, so really all this is is a cover up. It washes on and washes out each time. I didn't notice any shine, in fact I thought my hair was dull after using it. It didn't smell very good either. I say get a good quailty hair dye that has a glaze in it and avoid this stuff.

Bunny from Portland OR
This is by far one of the messiest products I've ever used! It's drippy and you'd better get it cleaned up before it stains. That said, once I got it on and wiped it off of my ears, neck, and where ever else I didn't want it, I let it sit on my head for a half hour. I was sure it would rinse all out, but to my surprise the color blended beautifully with my roots, and has actually lasted through 2 shampoos. I would recommend it be more of a thick cream for easier use. A friend suggested mixing with a thick conditioner. Good luck-

I use this has a tinted conditioner. I use it often - after every or every other shampoo.
Mary from Menifee Ca
I was really skeptical about this product but it works! It's been over 2 months since my last color. Normally I'm really needing it due to the dullness and gray hair coming though. You can still see some gray but it does cover it and keeps my color like I just came from the salon! The only drawback is it's a bit messy and can stain your skin.
I love this product
Sandi from Oro Valley,AZ
Easy to use and makes a difference
I have been using for years .Would recommend
IHL from Lawrence, KS
After using the brilliant brunette shampoo I use this product. I leave it in a lot longer than directions and it adds a lot of color to my once brunette, now gray hair mostly and it adds a lot of color and highlights. It also makes my hair shine and soft.
Mara from NY
I have gray strands. I use the glaze to cover them. It makes it look like I have highlights. I have been using it for several years.
I have used this product for 15 years.
Corr1 from Austin Texad
I have use this with other temporary hair colors. It is gentle on your hair and easy to use.
My hair immediately dried out after applying this
droolingkat from wisconsin
I used this after using the Olaplex trial kit which made my hair very soft, after applying the john frieda gloss my hair immediately tangled and became dry like hay. The smell was so strong and chemically, NOT perfume, that I thought it must have been tampered with, because I've never smelt a product like this except in permanent hair dyes, but other people have noted this smell. I will be returning it.
I buy this often

I add this to my hair color
Overpowering perfumed scent, but nice results
TeacherMom from Grand Rapids, MI
I used this product per the directions. As promised, it increased shine and enhanced my fading brunette hair. However, the perfume scent was too much for me. I could barely wait for the next day to be able to wash my hair to get the scent out. It's too bad because I liked the results.
Turned my hair orange!

Used as directed
Super Warm/Orange color on Brown/Blonde hair
Emma from El Paso
My hair has natural dark ash brown roots and a little bit lighter ash blonde on my ends. I tried this to see what it could look like with my whole head a little darker and I figured since my hair is blonde it would take the color more. I did it in the shower as directed and did not notice a difference so I decided to do it on dry hair and I got more color but after I rinsed and dried it, my hair literally looks orange. It's extremely warm and my hair in general naturally is not warm at all. Not to mention the staining it did on my hands.
Great product. Both my husband and I enjoy the benefits
Glowe from San Jose
Easy product to use with beautiful results.

Couple weeks after color when needs a boost
Not worth the money
Lexyp22 from Florida
Made my hair dry, did not deposit any color, and the smell was pretty strong/chemically. This was a huge miss for me unfortunately.
I would buy this product again and again
None from Pennsylvania
Use this product all the time. As I stated before love the look and feel of my hair after using it.
Not like the clear glaze - made my hair fall out!
Sara from New Orleans, LA
I am a brunette with fine hair who does not use permanent hair dye. My hair gets brassy in the sun and I have a few grays, so I decided to try this color-depositing glaze instead of the clear John Freida glaze (which I LOVE). I loved the smell and the way this made my hair look, but it did not have the same sealing effect as the clear glaze and worst of all, made my hair fall out in fistfuls. I won't use again obviously, it is not worth the risk of losing any more hair. I would call this a temporary color/tint treatment and not a glaze.
Hair must have
Longhairdontcare from Atlanta, GA
I wish it would last longer than a few days, but it adds a beautiful dark color to brassy hair. It also adds a nice shine without being greasy.
Amy from Franklin, wi
Used it once and like it a lot. I did use it with the brilliant brunette shampoo and conditioner.
Love this product and use it all the time.
Bl from Phoenix
Adds Shine - really should come with a scrub brush :)
Jessica from NJ
I saw a recommendation for about 30 minute session with this, and it does seem to last with it. Adds back some luster, but not practical for daily use or necessarily more effective that way.
Glad to find this!
_daydreamer from Boston
I am so glad to find this here at ULTA! I use this to even out / fill in and tone bleach highlights. That being said, it lasts longer on bleached hair, but without the damage of using any peroxide..... I apply to almost dry hair and leave it on to get the depth i am looking for...... Haven't used it in a while, still works great.
Really liking it! Very easy to use too!
boots from AR
I got this yesterday at our local store. I was not sure because I had read so many mixed reviews. First it is very hard to find this product! Not sure why. I found it very easy to use. No stains on my hands are skin. It, along with using the shampoo & conditioner in the brilliant brunette visible deeper products, gave my hair a richer, healthier look. I had a few gray hairs popping up & did not want to use permanent color. This definitely fit the bill! My grays look like a light brown now & it gives my hair a look of being highlighted! I love it! I had read that it was very messy, which nearly scared my off from using it. I want to say right now that it was not messy! Very easy to use & I did see nice results! I am so glad I gave it a try! And I will be recommending it to all my friends!
Yes and I do buy it over and over
BL from Phoenix
I love this gloss. I just wish Ulta would carry a bigger supply than one or two bottles at a time.
I am hooked on John Freida products, excellent products.
