no, a gloss is just a diluted treatment because you're adding conditioner or coconut milk. glosses are used primarily to stretch your stash or to recycle prepared paste. you can leave glosses on for varied times. to maximize the benefit, i would recommend leaving a gloss on for longer than a full treatment. but i guess it really depends on what you're hoping to get out of the gloss.I could have my terminologies wrong, but in this thread, I've seen mention of using amla in a conditioner as a gloss, and then as what seems to me a deeper (longer time and stronger strength) treatment. That's what I meant.^^ What you mean by gloss vs a stronger treatment?
Also ladies do you think amla will help with a frizzy crown? I have the least definition/most frizz in my crown area. The curls are there but you'd have to be up close to see due to the frizz factor.
As for the frizzies.... YES! I have a problem with crown frizz too. My 1st application, I saw some improvement to the frizz, but nothing to be excited over. This second treatment, there was a noticable difference! So I would definitely recommend to at least try it and see what it does for you.
Thank you. I ordered a sample (or the smallest size they have). I will try it out since my crown is my trouble spot. So is a gloss really more like a quick rinse then? Sorry for so many questions. I'm nervous and excited to try it out!
i prefer infrequent full treatments (cost factor) to frequent glosses. as such, i don't bother with glosses. if the consistency of your gloss isn't thick enough, then you end up with a drippy mess. and making pastes of these ayurvedic herbs is messy enough for me.
