Do you want a hair glaze or a hair toner? It can get confusing so let me explain.Hair glaze is a non-permanent color that does not penetrate the hair shaft but coats the outside of the hair and adds shine. Hair toner also coats the hair shaft, but its purpose is to change the shade of the hair. Toner can also add some shine, but its primary function is to neutralize unwanted tones such a brassiness or yellow hair. A toner will penetrate the hair cuticle. When you lighten your hair it might bring up orange or yellow tones. A hair toner with blue or violet tones can be used to neutralize those tones.
One day you look in the mirror and your hair is dull and flat probably because of the products you use or maybe you have been sick. There are lots of reasons for hair to look dull and shiny. Putting a glaze on the hair shaft adds a non-permanent color that reflects light. A glaze sits on the outside of the hair cuticle and provides a reflective sheen. Glazes are available without color, or with color to give your hair a “refreshed” look. Toners and glazes do not last more than a few weeks. Sometimes your stylist will use a shampoo with a toner just to give you that little lift.
