Worried about my greys

Like Tree3Likes

I'm not clear what a 'glaze' is in hair stylist lingo, the commercial ones you can purchase yourself like John Frieda are semi permanent so non damaging and heavy on the silicones to give shine. But that doesn't fit in with a stylist who is 'up' on the Curly Girl method.

When I go in September to have it done, I'll be sure to ask lots of questions about the ingredients and processing.

on the livecurlylivefree.com website, under the FAQs, tiffany talks about glazes. (i would have copied it but i think we are not allowed to do that). in the answer she mentions that there are clear glazes, they last from 6 to 12 weeks.
