The glass hair look is easy to achieve and even easier to keep using ColourWOW’s range of hair care and styling products.

With the right tools and techniques, you’ll be able to achieve these high shine results at home. 

In this routine ColourWOW’s Global Director of Training and Education, Giles Robinson, takes us through how to get that sleek, shiny glass hair look that will last for days.

How do I use the ColorWOW Dreamfilter? 

The Color WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray is an impressive styling product that tackles humidity and frizz, while providing a sleek high shine finish. This lightweight styling spray is formulated with heat-activated that seal in strength and shine, for a silky finish. 

To activate these polymers it is important you apply a generous amount of the product to damp, towel dried hair and blow dry in small sections, maintaining tension with a brush. This method will give you the best results from this product, which will last up to 3-4 washes. 

In this routine we will show you how to use this product in conjunction with ColourWOW’s hair care range for super glossy, glass like hair. 

A step-by-step guide to your dream regime blowout:

Step 1: Pre-shampoo your hair

Step 1: Pre-shampoo your hair

Start your routine by using the ColorWOW Dream Filter Pre Shampoo Spray. This is a mineral remover that helps keep your colour vibrant and leaves hair feeling smoother. Apply evenly to hair before shampooing until hair is saturated and leave for 1-3 minutes before you wash it. Use every 3-4 washes.

Step 2: Colour security

Step 2: Colour security

Follow up your pre-shampoo treatment with the Color WOW Color Security Shampoo. This sulphate free shampoo leaves hair soft and gently removes buildup. Just apply a coin amount to wet hair and massage and lather the product before rinsing. 

Step 3: A lightweight conditioner

Step 3: A lightweight conditioner

Depending on the thickness of your hair follow up with either the ColorWOW Color Security Conditioner Fine-Normal or the ColorWOW Color Security Conditioner Normal-Thick. The translucent conditioning agents in this lightweight conditioner will give your hair enormous shine. Distribute evenly throughout lengths and ends before washing it out. 

Step 4: Dream cocktail

Step 4: Dream cocktail

Treat your hair with one of ColorWOW’s Dream Cocktails, which focus on dryness, volume or repair. For this routine we recommend trying the ColorWOW Dream Cocktail Coconut-Infused for Dry Hairfor dry hair. This will help hydrate coarse hair, and improves shine. Apply 2-3 pumps of this product to towel dried hair before styling, working it through your lengths and ends. Do not rinse, as this product is also activated by heat. 

Step 5: Apply the dream coat

Saturate your hair with the Color WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, spraying from root to tip, working in sections. Don’t towel dry your hair after, and move straight on to the blow out.

Step 6: The blow out

Step 6: The blow out

Take your hairdryer and begin to gently take some moisture out of the hair, starting with the ends. Then take a barrel brush and start brushing out your hair as you dry it, creating tension. This tension is vital in activating the product’s technology and achieving that glass hair effect. 

Step 7: Kiss it with your tongs

ColorWOW Tips:

  • The minerals and metals in tap water can build up in our hair when we shower, and distort our colour. Try a pre-shampoo treatment or filter to avoid colour damage.
