This week we had a Q&A with one of our stylists Sam to discuss the power of the Sheer Gloss…

What is a Sheer Gloss?
A Sheer Gloss, also knows as a toner, is a semi-permanent colour service that adjusts the tone of your hair. It is commonly used after a lightening treatment, like highlights or balayage, to neutralize, enhance or brighten your hair. It can also be purchased as a stand-alone service to refresh or revitalise the tone of your hair.

Do I need a toner?
Ever had highlights that you thought were a bit brassy? That’s because when hair is bleached it naturally lifts to a warmer tone (think yellow and orange shades). After your hair has been lifted, a toner or Sheer Gloss can help to transform those undertones. Whether you want to create champagne, rose gold waves, or a platinum blonde crop – a toner can help you get the colour you desire.
A toner allows you and your stylist to have more control over your finished look so if this is important to you then we would recommend having one!

How long will it last?
Nothing lasts forever, and this goes for toners too. The healthier your hair, the longer it will last. This is because the more damaged your hair becomes, the more porous it is and the more likely your colour is to fade. Looking after your hair before and after colouring and having regular cuts is the key to make your hair colour last longer.

OK, you’ve won me over… where can I get one?

Sophie Turner Wellaplex

Olaplex is so last season! Millimetre is thrilled to announce the launch of WELLAPLEX – the revolutionary new way to colour your hair with less damage.

We all know that coloured hair can get damaged – the chemical process, the stress of styling and even your environment can have a big impact on the health of your hair. With WELLAPLEX your stylists are now able to treat your hair whilst carrying out your colour transformation. So whether you’re begging to be blonde or craving a courageous colour change, with WELLAPLEX your hair will be healthier, flexible and more manageable.

Don’t believe us? Just ask Sophie Turner, who famously goes from blonde to red and back again for her onscreen role as Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark. In an interview Turner said:

“My colourist has been using Wella Professionals newest product, WellaPlex,during any colour services and it totally reconstructed my damaged hair. I’m not worried about my on-screen colour transformations any longer, because I know Wellaplex keeps my hair more manageable.”

What’s the science?
WELLALEX is an exclusive strengthening treatment that helps to reconstruct inner hair bonds for stronger hair. It consists of three stages: first it creates bonds within the hair during the lightening or colour process; next it rebalances the PH of your hair; and finally your take-home stabilising treatment will keep your hair healthy, strong and smooth.
