Most Helpful Positive Review i wasnt exactly sure what this product…
i wasnt exactly sure what this product was meant to do at first but what i noticed right away was that this product left my hair feeling silky and smooth! it took away all my hairs frizziness and also helped protect from any unwanted static that my hair usually experiences in the dry winter air. i used this product every few days since i only wash my hair about once a week and it has kept it looking smooth and fresh on all my non-wash days. so whatever this product was created to do, i dont think i really care, because its working great for me! :) i would recommend this to anyone who wants soft, touchable hair!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sooo the conditioner is my favorite…
Sooo the conditioner is my favorite but I was not the biggest fan of the gloss... After showering, I put it in my hair when it was still damp. I threw it up in a bun (I try not to use heat products on my hair) and left it dry. It definitely creates shine but I felt it was a little thick and heavy compared to what I usually use. Maybe I put too much product in (I am known to do that....problems with my massive lion mane for hair ). I suppose if you leave olive oil in your hair it has a similar effect to a coconut oil leave-in conditioner, more suited for course locks. I would recommend this product for someone with very course, dry or frizzy prone hair that usually uses lots of oils, moisture, and coconut oils.

Dissapointed from Connecticut
Not sure what happened, but this product isn't the same. This was THE ONLY product I used for YEARS to keep by hair manageable. It used to be able to blow dry my hair straight and it would completely smooth my course, frizzy hair, now the new formula makes my hair feel tacky and I can't run my fingers through it. PLEASE go back to the original formula. I'm so dissapointed and can't find any other product that can compare.
Bring back old version
MAM123 from Westchester Country NY
The new version does not help with frizz. Why did you change what was working well?
EFR333 from Sarasota, Florida
I used it on towel dried hair and dry hair. My hair is so soft and frizz free which is hard thieve in florida! Piece of advice to people that are used to the old line that was full of silicones, you have to give the products and your hair at least 3 weeks to adapt and rid your hair of the silicone buildup. I promise you that after that you will never use silicones again. Your hair will go back to its natural state. Smells so good!
Forget it. it is not the same
jessi from undisclosed
Why did Fekkai destroy a great product???? I hope they bring back the old Brilliant gloss, it was really brilliant. this multi tasker is the worse. it is heavy and it simply does not work.
Miss the old Formula!
Joann330 from Neptune, NJ
I ran out of the Brilliant Glossing cream which I have used for years and found they replaced it with this product. To be honest it is no where near the same as the old formula. I have very dry curly hair that I blow dry straight. The old formula was so nourishing and conditioning and the olive oil really helped with the dryness. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any product that even comes close. Please consider bringing back the old formula. You will have many happy customers if you do!!
A complete fail as far as a replacement goes.
pwill from oklahoma
This is a complete waist of money. Doesn't do anything for your hair , no shine or softness.
New formula is TERRIBLE
Bjohn from Memphis, TN
I LOVED the original and have used it for several years. This stuff is NOTHING like the original formula and it TERRIBLE. I am very disappointed.
Where is the original glossing creme?
mbrkie from Bozeman Montana
I bought this after not being able to find my original fekkai glossing creme anywhere, and boy am I disappointed! Why would you try and fix something that is not broken? That has been my go to styling cream for 6 years! I am never without it. It smells amazing, is lightweight and makes my hair feel and look great. This is not even close to the original product. Super disappointed and no longer a fan of fekkkai.
I'm SO TIRED of this company discontinuing amazing products!
Tigerlily7979 from Los Angeles
I have long loved Fekkai, and have been using their products for almost 20 years. Back in the day, I used their original curl line, and my hair has never looked so good! I was devastated when they discontinued it, and had to change shampoo/conditioner brands because I hated their new curl products so much. However, I continued using the glossing cream for years. Now, they have once again discontinued an amazing product, and replaced it with total garbage. I don't know whether they're replacing their ingredients with cheaper ones, or just have terrible, out of touch leadership, but now I'm done with this brand for good.
Miss the original Glossing Creme !
Kim B from Vermont
I recently received the Brilliant Gloss Multitasker - I had been a long time user of the original Brilliant Glossing Cream - which worked so well on my thick , coarse colored treated hair ! I was so disappointed that it was no longer available so I thought the new replacement would be even better - was I totally wrong ! It did nothing for my hair except make it feel greasy and heavy - couldn't wait to wash it out - and I used a dime size amount . I contacted customer service to return but was told because it was opened I could not return - but wonder how they would think I could have tried without opening the tube ??
They sent a few suggestions of a shampoo and conditioner to try but now I am stuck with a product that I can't use ! Would definitely not recommend this new replacement for a holy grail product that they have discontinued- PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL!!
Please bring back the old formula!!
Cynthia from Kentucky
I am known for my hair and it's because of the Brilliant Glossing Creme. I can't believe it got discontinued. This is like what they tried to do when they introduced New Coke! Don't mess with perfection!!! Please bring back the old formula!!!
Sassy Sasha 48 from City Island, NY
I just started to grow my hair after being in the hospital for six months and five brain surgeries, a stroke then on life support for 2 months. I have new growth finally... It's finally about 4 inches in the back from being shaved off for my surgeries and on life support for two months. My hair was to my mid back before all this happened. I love this product, it leaves my hair/curls soft and shiny without weighing it down. I have about 4 inches of new growth. This product seals the shaft and leaves my hair soft, smooth and shiny. I highly the recommended This product. A must have.
madi from los angeles, california
i love how little weight this product is on my hair! it smells good and i will definitely buy again!
Amazing stuff !
Sold from Washington
This is the only product i have found that gets rid of frizz and leaves shine WITHOUT greasing down my fine hair !
Yay finally NO SILICONES! Curly girl approval.
Doolie from D.C.
So I have always loved using this when I straightened my hair back in the day. When I decided to go silicone free for my curls, I had to give this up due to the plastic feeling on my hair.
I will say, wow! This is curly girl approved (without silicones and parabans) and it works! It actually works!
I will say people aren't usually happy with new formulations of a product, And I have been guilty of this myself (thank you suave for the change in the coconut). I think that with time, people will start to understand that they need a detox period from using silicones. I know I did!
You have gained a customer back that's for sure!
Not as good as the previous version
Crystal from Alabama
Bring bk the brilliance cream formula why change something that was excellent!!
Nothing like the old glossing cream.
Linada from IL
I loved the old glossing cream, and used it for years. I do not like this one. Nothing like the original. No shine or smoothness. Just dull looking hair. Will not buy again.
Bring back the original!
J. Cockerham from Columbia, sc
Please, please, please bring back the original version! I've used this for 4 years and never needed another styling product. The new version does not leave my hair smooth, it actually makes it feel rough and dry. It makes my hair frizzier! I threw it in the trash! Searching for a new brand now.
Bring back the old formula!
Theresa from Brooklyn, NY
I can't believe the old formula has been discontinued. It gave true brilliance to my hair. This new cream does nothing. Huge disappointment -- throwing it away.
16 Year Strong Loyal Customer Now Out!
CurlyGurly from Washington DC
I have curly ethnic hair -- a cross between Diana Ross in volume and Mel B from Spice Girls in texture. This was the only product aside from natural oils that I have ever used and worked for my hair consistently since 2004. I was amazed a french designer could tame ethnic hair. Remember this was early 2000! Compliments on my hair were heard from California to NY to Madrid and London. Now I am shattered the original glossing creme is gone to be replaced with a gel like product for finer hair. Total loss and shame! PLEASE revive your magnum opus!!!!!!
Why change a great product!!
JoannG322 from Toms River, NJ
I have used this product for many years and it was wonderful. I was so excited to try this new formula but I am so disappointed. The old formula really glossed my hair and removed all of the frizziness but this product does not even come close. Please bring back the old formula. Why would you change a product that people loved and raved about? I am now in search of a new product because this will not work for me. I see many others feel the same. Bring back the old formula!!!!
PLEASE bring the original GLOSSING CREME back!
LisaBeth from Bucks County, PA
I am beyond dismayed at having to write this review, and I truly hope that the folks at Fekkai will hear my plea. I have been using the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Creme for over 20 years. It was originally given to me as a gift and I've been a loyal customer ever since. I also use the shampoo and conditioner. The Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Creme is my GO-TO product. It is the ONLY hair product I've used for over two decades. Over the years, I would occasionally try something else just to see if there was anything out there that could match the caliber and effect of what the Glossing Creme achieves. And not only for my hair, but for my confidence. I'm 57 years old, have never dyed my hair, and I don't blow-dry it either. As it has turned more salt and pepper which I love, I receive awesome compliments and comments, and I always tell people about the fantastic product I use by Frederic Fekkai. What makes my hair look so great? It's the glossing creme. How do I know? Because when I don't use it, I think my hair looks like I'm old. When I do use it, my hair bounces, shines, and zings, it's fun, and the wavy-curls are enhanced just right. AND, it takes all of about 10 seconds to "do my hair". What do I love about the actual product besides the way it looks? It's not sticky, it keeps my hair soft, and the consistency is so great, whatever is left on my hands, I end up using almost as lotion on my hands rather than wash it off. I can't stand anything that leaves my hands or hair feeling sticky or crunchy. I tell people about the Fekkai Glossing Creme all the time, and people ask me questions about it. In some ways, it's as if I've become a citizen spokesperson for it.
I was very upset to hear the glossing creme was being discontinued. I saw that it was being replaced by the Brilliant Gloss Multi-Tasker Perfecting Creme. As an optimist, I was hoping that somehow it would be equally good or even better. I purchased a small size to try it out, and I'm so sad to say that it is AWFUL. It gives my hair a coarse texture, makes it look and feel dried-out, and leaves a residue. It doesn't do what the glossing creme does, and it has a consistency that is exactly what I DON'T want.
Please please please please please bring back the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Creme, and please let me know what else I can do to help make that happen. I'm happy to speak with corporate, or to Frederic Fekkai himself! Thank you.
Please bring back the old formula!
Donna79 from Salem NH
The new glossing cream is terrible. The old one was simply a miracle worker. I get re-branding and reinventing a product line but how this passed R&D I'll never know. Not only does it not do anything the old version did (tame frizz, fight humidity, condition hair) but it actually makes my hair brittle and dried out! Please please please don't do this to your forever loyal customers. Nothing out there compares to the old formula. My hair is begging you :)
I want my original Brilliant Glossing back
Wanda80214 from Denver
This new product is not as good as the original Brilliant Glossing. My friends and I are so disappointed that you have removed our original and replaced it with this, Please bring back the original. I miss all the compliments I used to get about my shinny hair.
Not the same
What doesn't work from undisclosed
Stick to what works. This stuff is awful and too heavy on my hair.
