I recently complained about how I've been finding my hair extra dry and brittle this season. Well, the hair gods were listening and I was fortunately introduced to GLISS Hair Repair by Schwarzkopf!
Continue reading to find out about this latest initiative, the five different types of treatments + get a peek at the Toronto launch party I went to couple of weeks ago.
New to Canada and exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Mart, GLISS is a line of hair repair products that help restore dry hair, breakage, split ends, colour-treated/highlighted hair, as well as hair that lacks volume.
These days it's truly difficult to find a shampoo and conditioner that does all of these things, without sacrificing one for the other. The five hair repair formulas are:
- GLISS Ultimate Repair
- GLISS Ultra+ Moisture
- GLISS Color Guard
- GLISS Oil Nutritive
- GLISS Extra Volume
If you've been following my blog/social media for the last few years, you KNOW that I love dying my hair. If you're new, well... now you know that about me. I'm super picky about the products I use on my hair, that includes shampoo/condition, hair sprays, dry shampoo, oils. There are a lot of products that aren't colour-friendly and I've learned over the years to look for very specific ingredients + claims. GLISS Color Guard is a rare gem, and it's amazing that you can grab it at your local drugstore.
GLISS Color Guard Shampoo: Whether you've recently coloured your hair or are looking to preserve what you have, this shampoo is for you! My hair dye cycle is about every six weeks. When I was into my 3rd week, I started using this treatment and the next day I got SUCH amazing compliments from my friends, clients, random people on the street. That gave me enough confidence to keep the treatment going!
GLISS Color Guard Conditioner: When used along with the pairing shampoo, this formula is designed to provide up to 12 weeks of colour protection. What?! That is unheard of in this world. It doesn't matter if you've got highlights, ombre, or full coloured locks.
GLISS Express Repair Conditioner: I'm a sucker for scent, and that alone could have convinced me to start using this spray. It's a mix of cotton candy and gummy works.. I think. It's sweet, delightful and stays in my hair for a long time. I use this leave-in conditioner after showering while my hair is still wet for best results. It helps keep the product + treatment in place, and adds shine to my locks.
I was stoked to attend the official Canadian launch party of GLISS by Schwarzkopf! We were pleasantly greeted by this beautiful photo wall of everyone in attendance. How talented is Monica Smiley?
While enjoying cocktails, yummy appetizers + treats, we listened to a couple of insightful presentations from Henkel's lead scientist, Jennifer Harris, and celebrity hairstylist, Peter Butler! They had cool demonstrations set up that analyzed our hair to determine the best GLISS Hair Repair treatment for each person. Naturally, I got Color Guard. I guess that means I'm on the right track.
The next treatment I'm going to try is the GLISS Ultimate Repair. Takes care of a little bit of everything for ya! Let me know if you end up picking up any of the new GLISS products available at Shoppers Drug Mart. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
