This product provides tons of glossy shine and is easy to use. I bought this because there was a glowing review on the hair board and I have been in the market for a gloss for quite some time. I purchased it on Amazon and it arrived quickly and was factory sealed, so I know it's the real deal. There's no need for developer with this product. It's applied to shampooed, towel dried hair straight from the tube. The tube is a generous size and there's probably 5-6 applications for my should length hair. I used a liberal amount per the instructions and then covered my hair with a plastic cap and used a heat cap for 15-20 minutes. You can also use a hooded dryer or just a blow dryer. I then rinsed and shampooed again and conditioned as usual. I then applied my usual Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil Primer to control frizz but no styling products because I wanted to check the shine and didn't want any product to interfere with that. I then let my hair air dry overnight. This morning the shine is unbelievable and my hair is very soft and smooth with no trace of the usual dryness. In addition to providing tons of shine, this product also conditions. It's like a gloss and a hydrating mask in one. I usually use Wella Color Touch Relights in /00, which is clear. CT is mixed with a 10 volume developer and lasts about 4 weeks. I do get a lot of shine with it but nothing like with this Cellophanes product. My hair positively glows. I have no idea how long it lasts but I guess that using sulfate free shampoo will help it last a lot longer. The tube I purchased on Amazon was <$20 and for about 5-6 applications, that's quite a good deal. The product itself is quite thick, like a gel and is easily applied throughout the hair. I probably used more than was necessary but because this was the first time and the instructions said "liberally apply" I wanted to make sure I got it right. I can't believe how glossy and conditioned my hair is this morning. Next time I might add some of one of the blond tinted formulas to the clear for some added oomph. I don't think this gloss would work as a toner but it's definitely great for refreshing existing color and for overall shine. My hair is super soft and smooth and it's incredibly shiny, which was the goal. I definitely recommend this product for any hair color. It's easy to apply and the results are superb. It's certainly superior to what I was using before. I now have a great new product in my arsenal. I'm so glad I pulled the trigger on this excellent gloss.
