The Perfect Hair Glossing Service Using Redken Shades EQ

21 May 2021 | Tincture and Colour

We are hair perfectionists at heart, which is why we are buzzing to introduce a product which helps us achieve nothing less than total perfection. It’s a completely customisable colour that also gives your hair unbelievable shine. Don’t believe us? Keep reading to find out everything about Redken Shades EQ, from what it is to whether Shades EQ damages hair.


What is a Hair Glossing Service?

Hair glossing is a professional colouring and toner service done in the salon. Glossing allows us to tweak your colour to get it just right whilst also leaving your hair with an unreal shine. It’s also amazing if you fancy a big colour change, but don’t want to commit just yet.

If you read our 2021 Colour Trends blog, you would recall that glossing is a major trend right now. After all, who would say no to having gleaming, healthy looking locks?


What is Redken Shades EQ Hair Gloss?

Redken Shades EQ is an acidic demi-permanent hair colour. Don’t be put off by the term ‘acidic’, as this actually means it is a lot more gentle than other hair colours!

The Shades EQ range certainly does not have a shortage of colours to choose from. We can also mix them together to really fine-tune the shade, so you are guaranteed your dream colour. And, as if it couldn’t get any better, it provides shine-enhancing benefits to give you that gorgeous glossy finish.

Why Do We Think You’ll Love Shades EQ?

It’s Ammonia-Free, Aka Super Gentle

There is a lot of stigma around ammonia in hair colour. In professional hands, colour containing ammonia is completely safe and actually needed to help your colour last. However, since Shades EQ is a demi-permanent colour, no ammonia is necessary, meaning the process is very gentle on your hair.

If your hair’s a little more on the damaged side but you’re craving a colour change, Redken Shades EQ might be the best option for you!

Does Shades EQ Damage Hair? Acidic Hair Colour for Minimal Damage

So, does Shades EQ damage hair at all? The acidic formula means that the colour will process gently to keep your hair in optimal condition. You can also thank it for helping to add that glamorous shine.

It Adds Unbelievable Shine

The formula also includes wheat amino acids, which help your hair to look and feel healthy. And, of course, a glossing service is never complete until people can almost see their own reflections in your hair. 

Quick and Easy Service

Unlike a lot of colours, Shades EQ only takes 20 minutes to process. This will still give you time to unwind and enjoy our amazing service, but will also give you a new look in a flash!

Wave Goodbye to Discolouration

Shades EQ allows us to colour correct your hair with ease. So, if you’re still suffering with lockdown roots, or you’re starting to see brassy tones in your hair, then we have Shades EQ on hand to save you.

How Do We Apply Shades EQ at the Salon?

As with every hair service, we will sit you down and listen to your hair goals, so we can work out the best way to achieve your dream look. If we need to lighten your hair with bleach, that will be done first. Our stylist will then mix up a custom gloss that perfectly matches your desired colour – that’s the beauty of Shades EQ!

The gloss will be left for 20 minutes before we rinse and wash your hair. We’ll finish with a beautiful blowdry and, just like that, you’ll have your dream look.


Is Shades EQ Gloss Right For You?

To put it simply, most of your colour needs can be achieved with Redken Shades EQ. We’ll use it to perfect the shade of your balayage or touch up your regrowth. If you need a major colour correction, we’ve got you. Or if you’re feeling spontaneous, you can try a bold new colour without the commitment. Most of all, if you want shiny hair that is super soft to the touch, then look no further.
