French Glossing

French Glossing is the need-to-know service that your clients will be asking for as we head into autumn. Here’s how you can offer it in the salon…

What is French Glossing?

French Glossing is a new professional service from L’Oréal Professionnel Paris, offering professional seamless colour with a personalised glossy finish. The bespoke technique is only achievable in-salon, making it the ideal opportunity to re-engage with clients who have been colouring their hair at home during lockdown, as well for upselling to your loyal clients for an upgraded colour service.

French Glossing provides the shine, gloss, coverage and colour blend that clients are seeking to draw them back to the chair for this professional service. In fact, it offers up to 2x shinier hair* and up to 30% more conditioned** hair, leaving their hair healthy and glossy, which can only be achieved in-salon.

Before and after

Roots: Majirel 4.8 + 20 Vol. L’Oréal Professionnel Cream Oxydant
Lengths: Dia Light 6.34  + 9 Vol Diactivateur

How Do I Achieve the French Glossing Technique?

Performed in two steps, permanent hair colour is placed at the root for perfect root coverage, using Majirel or iNOA. Dia Light is used throughout the lengths to revive colour for a personalised glossy finish.

Dia Light is the secret weapon to create the personalised gloss and shine that many women want. When combined with permanent colour at the root, it’s what makes the professional difference. Because at the heart of French Glossing is you. As the professional, French Glossing elevates the profession and those who can offer this bespoke technique will draw back clients to the salon and secure rebookings.

The Pro Difference: Dia Light

The hero of French Glossing is Dia Light. The same winning formula of the acidic pH gel-cream technology revives colour seamlessly and is now in a new more sustainable packaging with five new shades and a new clear format. Dia Light is colour coded and perfectly complements Majirel to marry the lengths with permanent colour at the root.

The new Dia Light Acidic Clear Gloss can dilute colour for subtle transformations and can be used to fluidify the texture of any Dia Light mix for faster take through***, with a fast and easy application. Dia Light Clear is also available in an economic 250ml format to give you more out of every tube and make more profit.

More Sustainable

The pandemic has increased focus on the natural environment, with sustainability at the forefront of consumer’s minds. Dia Light’s recyclable tube is made of 95% recycled aluminium, while the caps**** and cardboard are fully recyclable and made of recycled material. L’Oréal Professionnel Paris is one step closer to playing its part in creating a green footprint.
