Most Helpful Positive Review Wonderful
I have searched and searched for a product that would help keep my hair looking glossy with shine without leaving it heavy or greasy. Nothing worked, my hair looked over processed and just damaged. In one single use of this product I fell in love. It is so easy to use in the mornings, I simply wash and condition my hair, get an excess water out, apply the product from root to tip, rinse and I am done. I get so many comments about how silky and shiny my processed hair looks so I had to rave about this product and I do not do that very often.
Most Helpful Critical Review Embarrassed
I was super excited about trying this product for my frizzing wacky hair to add shine and smooth the hair. I did it on dry hair and totally made it wet with the product and left it on for 20 minutes as it recommended. I then rinsed it well in cool water and followed up with shampoo and conditioner. I let it partially towel/air dry and then finished with my blow dryer on a medium setting. The results at first were AMAZING. Smooth, shiny manageable hair emerged! HOWEVER as I was finishing drying it, there were spots of my hair that looked like a thick hairspray/glue/gunk was on it. With brushing it only lost the sleekness and became puffy again. The white flakes or whatever NEVER came out. They only left mild tiny flakes on my shirt. I got up this morning and washed it again, plus conditioned. Repeat. My hair STILL has white flakes on the strands. It looks super damaged or like I have paint in my hair. I am soooo confused and kinda upset I wasted my money. Any suggestions????? I want my normal, healthy hair back!
The pic added is right after the treatment last night.

I used this each time I washed and conditioned my hair.
My go to for shiny curls
Amy from MD
I use this on my curly hair several times a week to counter damage from hair dye and to seal in shine. It leaves my curls much smoother and shinier - curly hair holds a lot of moisture and you can tell the difference even as it dries, as the water comes off more readily. I quickly shampoo and condition and then leave this on for the remainder of the shower. LOVE it!!
Didn't work for grey

I was looking forward to shinier hair but my silver turned yellow. So disappointed. Had to return it.
Keeps hair looking...

Keeps hair looking healthy and vibrant without adding or removing color. Using a glaze after coloring makes such a difference
The best product I have ever tried!
Ambi from Missoula, MT
This stuff is liquid gold! I decided to stop coloring my hair a few years ago yet the gray coming in was dry and unmanageable. Once I started using this product my hair had more bounce, shine and softness! I'll never stop using this product!

This is my first time using this product and i am in love!!My hair is extreamly soft and shiny,all naturally. I put this on 20min prior to washing my hair than i rinsed with Redkin Shampoo & Conditioner. I am satisfied with the product just wish there was more product i found 6oz not to be enough.
Doesn't work, feels gummy
Sue from USA
I was hoping for a clear shine on my salt & pepper straight hair. I found that it only added a tiny bit of shine **IF** I didn't rinse it all out, but then it felt sticky and gummy, and I had to wash my hair again. Reading the ingredients, I see it includes mica, which explains some slight shine/sparkle if not rinsed out. Also of note is that the bottle only contains 6.5 ounces of product so seems overpriced. At any rate, I will not repurchase and don't recommend it.
fantastic I love this...

a must have!

If you color your hair as often as I do a clear shine afterwards can change your life. It adds a shine and luster to dull damaged or fried hair that I thought Id never get back. Im no professional but I use this about once every six months in between salon visits
Makes my hair very frizzy
Ally from Ca
My hair gets very frizzy with this product I wish I could load a picture it's crazy bad. I could see the shine but if I put too much my hair feels oily.
cheneyp from undisclosed
I decided to try this stuff for the first time tonight and I did the Weekly Treatment method (apply to dry hair and wait 20 minutes, then rinse, shampoo and condition). My hair is long and blue black (box dye) and my hair looks super shiny! My only complaint is it seemed to wash some of the color out of my hair and it also made my nail polish start to rub off, so wear gloves!!

Did not do much for my hair...not sure why? I usually love their products. I have longish blonde hair and I left it on the 20 minutes
AnnR from Michigan
Leaves hair shiny. I use in the shower and you don't need a lot.
Tropicalbabe from Albuquerque
I loveeeee this product. I use the clear one on my dark brown hair and have been a loyal user since 2012. I leave it as long as I can in the shower so I shampoo as soon as I'm in and then saturate my hair with this and let it sit until I'm ready to get out. I use it once a week or whenever I want my hair to look fabulous. I most recently used it yesterday after I had a bad experience with Olaplex No 0 and No 3. I used the olaplex shampoo as well but it just made my hair sticky and super gross so I showered and used the clear glaze and it did the trick! It removed the funk and hair feels so darn amazing! So much better than those expensive treatments. Please never discontinue.
Sorry just didn't see the shine.
Bondgirl from Louisiana
Gave it a shot for a couple months but didn't get that shine I was looking for. Didn't find that it helped with smoothing for straight iron either. Went back to my usual Biosilk glazing product.
Love this, however...................
Sammie from Iola, Texas
The product works fantastic, I've always loved the Frieda products, I just have trouble finding them. However, I read one review where the lady said her bottle was only half full,
I read a review that said the new bottle was only half full,
so I checked mine, put my phone flashlight behind it and while it was more than half full it
was not all the way full and I had only used it once.There is no way that I used a 1/4 of a
bottle in one use. Either the bottle is too big for the amount of product, or the there's some cheating going on. It would solve the problem if there was a clear strip down the side of the bottle so we could see how much was in it.
I'm still going to buy the product because it's just that good, but this problem needs to be resolved.
Great for fine hair
Cb from Cleveland, Ohio
I have finds hair that typically gets greasy easily but this makes my hair shiny without weighing it down. I love it!
Never buy again
Emi from San jose
I used this as directed and my hair is dull, frizzy and slightly tacky feeling . Way worse then it looked before. Wish I would have read the reviews first. Will be washing with a clarifying shampoo till it washes out.
A staple for me
EvaEva from Pennsylvania
I have a chin-length bob and fine, straight hair that flips up when it is humid. This is the only thing I have found that makes my hair lay straight without weighing it down. I primarily use this in the summer or for special occasions.
Mags from NJ
I use it every two days with one time 20 min leave in. Works magic
I would give more stars if possible
Jennifer from Woodstock
I have nothing negative to say. I have tried so many serums, mists, rinses, conditioners....everything weights down, makes my hair oily or sticky. I love how much shinier and thicker my hair feels. It is not way too glossy. It smells really nice but subtle. My hair had a dry texture until I used glaze. I hate to gush but, this product is exciting!
This is a shower...
bethaddison from undisclosed
This is a shower treatment for the hair ! I use this three times a week after my shampoo and conditioner and leave it in my hair for 4 minutes. This helps to keep my hair looking healthy and hydrated ! I really recommend this to anyone who has color treated hair or deals with very dry hair! The price is so worth trying this out! I got this to test and fell in love with it
Used for Years
Courtney from Oklahoma
I've always meant to review this product. I have used it for several years now and it never fails. I used it two days ago, and yesterday on a FaceTime (currently during the quarantine) a friend asked, "Did you use that hair glaze you have?" Haha. It brightens my blonde and takes out brassy coloring, but not in any kind of scary color changing way. I have medium/light brown hair with a heavy amount of blonde balayage.
When I get a new bottle I put it all over my dry hair for 20minutes, rinse it out and shampoo & condition.
Then, I put the bottle in the shower with what's left of the product (I have thick hair but there's still normally quite a bit left) and use it whenever I shower. (Shampoo, Condition, then the glaze for 3 minutes)
That's lengthy, but it's a product that has always made my hair been noticeably refreshed by others when I use it, and renews my balayage so I can keep going even longer between colors.
Great for that salon-fresh upkeep
toriajeanne from NH
I'm typically not a fan of John Frieda products, but this is a gamechanger! I have fine, long hair that is colored. Using this product as weekly treatments, my hair felt instantly stronger and thicker, and it was noticeably shinier. I get multiple uses out of one container...around 4-5! It's a lot of mileage out of such an affordable product.

I used this product for the first time about a month ago and my hair is still shiny and lustrous like the first day I used it. Its very easy to use and is comparable to a salon gloss.
