Everyone says, “New Year, New You.” It’s a strong statement, but I’m trying a little something new with my hair in 2009. According to an Allure.com poll, 58% of women say a new haircut or color is their first step when they want a change. I recently jumped from dirty blonde to a deep chestnut—it’s a big change! I’m just now learning how to manage the color, while keeping my hair healthy. I’d love to hit up the salon for a deep condition or glaze treatment, but who really has the time or the money to do that? My solution: John Frieda’s luminous color glaze in clear shine. Here’s how it works—smooth it on, let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse! Simple. I think this is absolutely perfect to achieve that crucial shine and glossiness in the months between your salon visits. Even better, it’s only $9.99!
