The Single Best Product to Use If You Have Brown Hair

When it comes to brown hair, dullness and fading is the enemy. A bit of shine means the difference between blah and bling, bland and brilliant, mousy and modern…need we go on?

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to get your strands to shine. Whereas we used to rely solely on salons for glossy hair, we can now get the same treatment in the comfort of our own showers. (Bless.)

Tell us more. Celebrity stylist Kristin Ess (whose Instagram feed inspires pretty much all of our hair choices) recently launched a collection of at-home glosses that deposit just a tint of color and tons of conditioning ingredients that give winter-worn hair a quick boost.

How do you use it? Start by soaking your hair thoroughly in the shower. Then, mix the bottle of gloss with the activator and shake well before applying to your hair section by section. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes and shampoo and condition as usual. Glass hair? Easy peasy.
