For some reason, my hair pulls very warm, orangy tones whenever it is highlighted or dyed. This is the only home Highlighter that leaves my hair blonde and not orange and brassy (and I've tried just about everything). Highly recommended.

This particular brand and color is the best I have ever used. If your blond hair is totally bleached out and color will not hold . . then purchase a light brown color. Cover your hair with it. Then rinse, dry and put this Clairol Nice N Easy Frost & Tip on. I put it on with my hair brush and run it through my hair (5 or 6 strokes to put highlights where I want. Your hair will return to its rich blond color!!

I have had highlighted blonde hair for the past 12 years. I have had my hair done in many salons (most exclusive and high end, I.e Red Door Spas, resort hotels, etc) and I am NEVER happy with the color like I am with using this kit. It is truly the best product out there.

Application tips: The key is to understanding the processing time, I have blonde hair and I never leave it on for less than an hour. Typically 70 minutes of processing time, darker hair needs longer. Also, make sure that there are no loops. Thicker pulls in the front, thinner pulls in the back. Color should look icy-white (NOT yellow-y golden blonde) when you decide to rinse. The color will ALWAYS turn slightly more gold and brassy later so you want it as light as possible.This is the major mistake that women and most hairstylists make when coloring blonde hair.

My only drawback with this color is that it's rough on your hair. Lots of breakage if you do it often. The good thing you can now afford premium hair products since you're saving money on color. Highly recommend the ojon treatment oil, and the Frederic fekkai Rx line. I also take biosil and viviscal.

It has taken me years and thousands of dollars to learn all of this. No more WAY overpriced salon visits!

This is the only highlights that really can pass through my dark brown hair and turn it to beautiful blond highlights. I have done my own hair for years. I really like the tone this gives my hair. Blond ! That is the color I want. That is the color this brand delivers.

I have read other reviews that say their hair turns brassy or reddish on their dark brown hair. I have to leave the frost on my hair for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Do not wash hair out until you see the yellow to light yellow come up. Years ago when I first did it I was afraid to leave it on too long and would wash it out . If it looks brassy it still needs to stay on a little longer until it turns light yellow.

Here is a fast trick I learned from my hairdresser. If it is taking unusually long to come up take your hair dryer and swirl it around the cap with the plastic still covering the cap for about 3 minutes. Direct the blower to an all over the cap instead of directing to one spot. That heat brings it up much faster. The color needs time to process and get to that lighter color.

Also start with clean hair. Wash it before frosting thus cleaning all residue off your hair.

I did my 10 yr old daughter's (dark blonde) hair- we did her whole head; with the cap & tool this kit provides. Time suggested ranges from 10 minutes- 90minutes, we left her's on for about 15 minutes. The effect is SO beautiful! Very professional looking, and subtle. (Mid-summer we may boost the time a bit longer?) I then used some on my (Dark Brown) hair, for an ombre effect. (There was a 'how to' instruction in an O magazine, that I'd clipped) I left the product on my hair about 25-30 minutes. We didn't have another plastic bag, so I took the one we used on her, and turned it inside out and re-used it on me. Mine also looks very good. I could have done 2 more people's hair with the amount of product left! So- definitely invite a friend, or two, over to share in the fun! Many times I run out of product, it was nice to see they didn't skimp. We will be using this brand again, and we'll skip the others.

This product adds great highlights without ruining your hair. I use it about every six months and have always been pleased at how gentle it is on my hair.

My highlights were growing out fast, and I could not force myself to pay $80-$150 at a salon. That price is crazy! (When I visit my family in the Midwest I have my hair done there - much cheaper. However, we had no trips back West planned.) I started researching highlighting kits and this one by Clairol seemed like the best fit. The price was amazing, so I decided to go for it. The directions were clear and easy to follow. The cap held up well and seemed like salon quality. I've had my hair highlighted using a cap before, so I knew the procedure. I did find it difficult to pull the hair through on top and in the back without help (my husband and 8 year old took turns!) so I would suggest having another person around. My hair lightened more quickly than when I did the color test on a small piece. Perhaps because I chose a dark piece from underneath and my top layer of hair is lighter? My hair is a darkish blond color, maybe dishwater blond. Not attractive. After highlighting, it was a nice, soft blond. I rinsed and washed like the directions called for and am so pleased with the results! The highlighting is quite subtle, but I can definitely notice a difference. I might pull out larger pieces next time. I definitely have received less satisfactory result from salons on more than one occasion! I love the fact that I have saved hundreds of dollars (I received a three pack in the mail) and never had to leave home! I highly recommend this kit to anyone who refuses to pay astronomical prices, is willing to experiment, and has a couple of hours to spare.

Honestly, I never do reviews, but I really liked the results of this product and I encourage you to purchase it if you are looking for highlights that actually look good. I already had highlights in my hair prior to my purchasing this product, but they were not very bright. I decided to use ALL of the product all over my hair and I did not use the highlighting cap that the box comes with. After 45 minutes all of my hair was a beautiful blonde (I have naturally very dark brown hair). If this worked on me then it could work on you. I am in love with my hair color =).

I have naturally curly thick hair that's light brown. Anytime I've ever used home color my hair turns red. I was bored and thought I'd try this. I did the strand test and it looked ok so went ahead and did the full highlight using the cap. Since my hair is so thick I pulled hair through every hole in cap. It did take a long time to do that and I'd highly recommend having help if you can. The strand test took about 30 minutes so I was shocked when the full highlight only took 20. I guess having my head wrapped in plastic held heat in and sped the process up. Anyway.........I also took a couple of foil pieces and did some chunky sections right by my bangs in front for a nice pop of color up front. The color came out so nice and my hair feels very soft and not at all damaged. Which is suprising considering my hair has been colored a lot the last couple of years and was not in good condition in the first place. It is a bit of a warm blond, but not what I'd call brassy or red at all. It all blends in very naturally and really brightened up my hair. Hard to believe I got such great results from a box.....
