Exactly. My CG stylist told me the same thing about the do-it-yourself boxed glazes being full of silicones and said the glaze she would do would be better for me. I didn't ask her specifics about how it works, but I do remember her saying that it was like a color process without the pigment. *shrug* Maybe it's voodoo and will do nothing, but I'm willing to try it once and see. When I go in September to have it done, I'll be sure to ask lots of questions about the ingredients and processing.

Would you report back please? I'm genuinely interested in the key ingredients. Maybe it's a protein filler of some sort, using a really weak peroxide and/ or alkaline to lift the cuticle. I can't think what else would give extra shine and condition and is like a colour process not a regular deep condition. Maybe it's something we could replicate with DIY ....

I will definitely report back - it would be great if it worked and could be replicated at home!

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.
