French glossing image

We caught up with Nicola Chamberlain of L’Oreal Professional to learn more about the French glossing technique showing the perfect partnership between Majirel and Dialight.


“So…Why are Dialight and Majirel the perfect partners? Like bread and butter, gin and tonic and pen and paper. This perfect partnership has been going on for years but, we must remind ourselves why is it so good. It creates glossy, luminous reflections and a mirror shine whilst respecting the integrity of the hair, a red carpet finish and quick and easy application.”

“I can’t live without the DiaLight Clear. Not only is it way morehandy having it in a squeeze tube, it has made me moreexperimental with my formulas, being able to add differentamountsto personalise the toner to the client.

My favourite thing todo,with theclear,is adding it into a toner when the client has porous hair, which prevents the toner from grabbingand allows me more time to apply, for better results!It’s also a great add on service if a client has an event, or is getting married.I will use the clear to add lots of shine and gloss to the hair and the clients love it!”
