Gloss Moderne High-Gloss Serum

Gloss Moderne High-Gloss Serum

Offering relentless thermal protection and startling shine, this shine serum creates inimitable style for that certain je ne sais quoi. It's lip gloss for your hair! 



Infused with keratin, a natural protein found in hair, Gloss Moderne's Luxury Hair Care Collection strengthens brittle strands, "breathing life" back into hair to help prevent split ends and breakage. It is also infused with panthenol, a pro-vitamin (Vitamin B5) that moisturizes and coats hair's rough surface making it smooth, shiny and soft. However, what goes into a product is just as important as what does not. 

Gloss Moderne's Luxury Hair Care Collection is pleasantly free of harsh, unnecessary chemicals and completely sulfate-free, sodium chloride-free and paraben-free --all of which are said to be drying, allergenic and irritating to the skin. 

Signature Coco de Soleil fragrance is a sensual, intoxicating fragrance reminiscent of the French Riviera. C'est Magnifique!

For Runway Ready Results: Apply deliberately to damp or dry hair. Get Glossed!
