I, like most women, like changing up my hair now and then. And I’ve found the best at home HIGHLIGHTING HAIR KIT. I love trying out different hairstyles and different colors. But going to the salon can get pricey. An average cut and color can be well over $100. A girlfriend of mine spent $250 on highlights, highlights! So I have been guilty of spending a pretty penny on my hair. Don’t get me wrong; I love going to the salon and getting pampered, but when times get tough, and you can’t go, well, you go another route.
I’ve been coloring my hair ever since I was in high school. My mom has permanently colored her hair. As a kid, I remember seeing little boxes of hair color in the bathroom, stashed away, waiting. So, it’s no surprise that I’m okay with coloring my own. I get it from my madre.
I’m a dark brunette by birth, but I’ve changed my hair color quite a bit. I figure it’s hair…if I screw it up, I’ll cut it or recolor it. I’ve had my hair black, blonde, red, and pink, and have had highlights and even purple hair at one point, but that was a major disaster—a story for another day. I also have thick, coarse hair, which can sometimes be challenging.
Around the beginning of the year, I was thinking about getting highlights. We had a trip planned, and I wanted my hair lighter. Highlights can be intimidating, or so I thought. I read reviews on Revlon’s-Color Effects Frost and Glow highlighting kit and decided to try it. I’m glad I tried it because I LOVE the results! I’m a believer now. It works great, and my wallet is happy too!
Is coloring your hair time-consuming? Yes!
Does it take patience? Yes, it does!
It took about 3 hours. The exact amount of time it would have been at the salon. There are different methods of highlighting your hair, but I prefer using a cap. Getting the hair out of the cap takes the longest. If you have someone to help with that part, I suggest you have them do it because it gets tricky, pulling the hair out from the holes on the cap’s back.
You only need to color the portion of hair that comes out through the cap’s holes. I used a hair tie to get the hair I wasn’t coloring and tucked underneath the cap. The rest is pretty straightforward. You color your hair, leave it in for the amount of time suggested, and then rinse out. I followed the instructions, and it came out great. I was so impressed with how great the color came out and how well the highlights looked!
It’s worth the time and effort. All in all, this highlighting kit worked great. I also bought a purple shampoo/conditioner to help keep the blonde from looking too brassy.
Because I color my hair often, I use products that will also help keep my hair healthy after all I put it through. So a hair mask here and there, argon oil, and a heat protectant spray right before I blow dry my hair are my go-to’s. It’s the best at-home highlighting hair kit I’ve tried, and my hair has been looking pretty darn good during this quarantine!
