Glazing Over It: Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze

One of my all-time favorite things to do at the salon? It's not the head massage that comes with my shampoo -- though it is amazingly relaxing -- or the coma-inducing hand massage that I get while my hair is being blown out. Those perks are great, but I'd give them up just to get a glaze every time I step into the salon. The sleek, shiny results leave me feeling happy every time I catch a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror. So when I heard about Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze, I just knew I had to check it out. The glossy finish from a salon glaze right in your own home? Sign me up immediately, I thought to myself.

The bottle itself feels like a tube of at-home hair color -- but when you unscrew the cap, you don't have to worry about that horribly strong scent of ammonia. I love that it's designed for use during your regular shower -- you simply squeeze it over your locks and let it sit for 5-7 minutes. Then rinse off, and voila! Super-shiny tresses.

The formula is non-chemical, so it won't damage your hair. A blend of conditioning and lightweight silicones coat each strand and bind shine to your whole head, helped along by pearl proteins for super-reflective shine. Grape seed extract, sweet almond protein and Pro-Vitamin B5 help to condition your locks and keep them from drying out.

The verdict? THIS PRODUCT WORKS. After only one use, my dried-out, coarse hair was already looking much less worse for wear. I've been using it 2-3 times a week, and oh my goodness, is my hair shinylicious now! Shine on.


  1. Great review!! I'm totally convinced! Sign me up too, please!! :)

  2. i love fekkai products. i work at bath & body works and we sell most of his products. they're truly amazing. you should check out your nearest bbw. sometimes we even have fekkai sales!

  3. I really want to try this. I emailed the FF PR person and have not heard anything back. So much for FF's video at the summit about how much they want to support us bloggers.

  4. Is this okay for someone with fine hair? Or would my hair be in danger of getting too greasy?

  5. nilla cookie -- Thanks! I think you'd love it.

    nikki -- Thanks for the tip! I knew the products were sold on BBW's website but had no idea they were in stores too. Will definitely check them out!

    cybele -- Just keep trying! Sometimes it's good to be persistent!

    jenna -- I definitely think it's okay for fine hair as well as thick. Start with a dime-sized amount and work that in -- and just keep working in small doses until your hair is covered. I think you'll find that it works for you, too!
