Which John Frieda gloss to buy? Depends... 28 Feb. 2014
By Sidney N. Reed - Published on
Verified Purchase
I purchased both this Shine Shock and the John Frieda Liquid Shine Luminous Glaze. John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Luminous Color Glaze-6.5 oz (192 ml) I figured between the two of them, one should work out nicely. This one is labeled "glosser", while the other is a "glaze." So, what's the difference exactly? And which one should I buy? Depends on a few things...


- apply to wet hair after getting out of shower, then follow up with usual styling process
- thick, clear gel type that you slather on palms and apply to hair
- a bit difficult to work into hair (only apply to areas of hair you'll see, like top layers of hair and ends)
- adds a subtle shine to otherwise dull hair (not going to be as glossy as a mirror, but a slight shine)
- does not volumize, soften, or texture hair (be careful, it can end up like styling wax if you don't water it down)
- does not add color
- takes a mere minute to apply


- in shower, shampoo and condition, then rub in glaze and keep in shower cap for 3-5 mins, then rinse
- a dark brown, shampoo like consistency that you lather all over hair
- very slippery and easy to apply to hair, but a bit messy and can stain your skin if you aren't careful
- shine is apparently all over hair, not just surfaces
- adds very noticeable shine and color dimension
- will add slight volume without thickening or weighing down, softens like a conditioner, and tames flyways
- takes a while to apply in the shower, plus you have to work carefully
- may stain your towels brown unless you rinse all of it out and use a black towel for hair only


It depends on what you're going for. I take a shower at night and wash my hair every day (I have Japanese hair that produces it's own oil), so putting this gloss in my hair is a pain. I have to get out the shower, apply this gloss, then dry it with a blowdryer and hope it doesn't rub off at night. The next morning, I noticed my hair felt thick and waxy. Plus, it really clung to the parts I applied, but the underlying hair looked dull. It would be too expensive to apply this gloss to every bit of my mid-back length hair (the bottle is a bit larger than travel size). If you want a nice, consistent shine for long dark hair, I would recommend you use the Luminous Glaze instead. You get more in the bottle, and even though it takes an extra step during your shower, the results are really stunning.

This gloss would be great for people who shower in the morning. When you wash your hair at night, your roots have 8+ hours to replenish oil, so I normally wake up with soft, self-styling hair. When I shower in the morning, my hair feels dry and there's static. It just hasn't had time to recover and re-condition itself. (I think showering in the morning is more American, hence the invention of leave-in-conditioners?) If you are a morning-showerer, this gloss is a quick and easy way to tame those flyaways. But beware, it can be a bit heavy and gunky unless you water it down and REALLY spread it around. It won't moisture or soften your hair either.

So depends on what type of hair/lifestyle you have. Oily hair? Shower and night? Go with the Luminous Glaze and enjoy soft, silky, and well-behaved hair. Dry hair? Shower in the morning? Have flyaways and frizz? This Shine Shock is your better choice.

LOVE this stuff! 2 Aug. 2009
By boxwood100 - Published on
This stuff is fabulous in the summer humidity. I have very long, thick, wavy hair and this stuff calms it down and makes it shine like nothing I've ever used. It highlights colored hair nicely, making your hair look even younger. Great, great stuff, and a very little goes a long. long way. I don't have trouble with limp hair, but then again, when the humidity rises, well, I do a great imitation of a bush without this stuff. Highly, highly recommend!

Depends on Hair Type 2 Sept. 2009
By E. Johnson - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have straight shoulder-length brown hair. Due to medication I've been on for the past 2 years I've had trouble with seriously thinning hair and it is finally regrowing... I have been looking for products that will help it to look healthy until it actually *becomes* healthy. I love the John Frieda lines... they do so much to add body and shine. So I tried this Shine Shock Glosser... using a tiny amount when my hair is still damp adds a little shine, but if I use it when my hair is dry, it just makes my hair look greasy and makes it feel icky.
I'm not saying it's not a great product; just not for every hair type.

Control frizzy curls in the winter time 23 Feb. 2011
By Sapphire - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a hair product which would help tame the dry frizzies of winter. While this product does is not enough by itself to volumize and condition my fine, curly hair, it softens it in a way that nothing else I've tried seems to--and my bathroom vanity is crowded with different products I have bought for this purpose. I use it with other volumizers, thermal protectors, and conditioners. It works best in wet hair. Or, after the hair is dry, you can mix it with water in your hands and rub it through your hair, but if you don't mix it with water it can be gummy. Another bonus--the first two days after I used it, two people (one was my husband) asked me if I had colored my hair, which I had not. I have some grey and this product seems to tone down the grey and darken up the brown.

Different Product Shipped 8 July 2013
By Susan Katz - Published on
Verified Purchase
I specifically ordered this product in the packaging pictured because this is the old formulation of the glosser, rather than the new formulation. Although the products share the same name, they are different items.

Unfortunately, the new formula, rather than the old formula as pictured, was shipped. The new product is loaded with silicones. It feels like it, it looks like it, and it says so on the ingredients list, which is NOT the ingredients list on Amazon's product page. In other words, I did not get the item that I ordered.

This is definitely a product to avoid if you're trying to steer clear of silicone. Moreover, you won't get the one pictured or described here.
