Frost & Design Application Instructions

Before you color:

1. Do not shampoo hair. Comb through to detangle or brush gently to remove hair spray residue, if necessary

2. Do a strand test

Strand test step-by-step directions:

Step 1. Tie on Highlighting Cap so all hair is covered and tucked up inside.

Step 2. With metal styling hook, pull a generous amount of hair from behind one ear by pushing the hook through the hole, picking up a strand, and pulling it back through with a half turn of the hook. Be sure strands fill the entire hole.

Step 3. Put on the gloves. Mix one teaspoon of Lightening Powder with two teaspoons of Crème Developer in the tube. Then add a small amount of Frosting Protective Crème the size of a pearl or a bean to mixture. Stir using applicator end of plastic styling hook/applicator until mixture forms a thick, creamy paste.

Step 4. Rinse plastic styling hook/applicator clean with cold water; then use to coat strand generously with mixture.

Step 5. Put on Overcap to make a snug fit. You can also use some plastic wrap from home if you choose. Secure at forehead with a hairclip.

***Check test strand frequently.

Step 6. Carefully remove Overcap and wipe away mixture with a damp tissue. If hair has not reached the desired lighter shade, re-apply mixture as before. Note the time required to reach the ideal shade by reading the timing guide below. You will need to know this when you do the full process.

Step 7. Remove Overcap and rinse mixture off test strand and Highlighting Cap. Rinse and dry mixing tray, plastic styling hook/applicator, Overcap, and Highlighting Cap.

Put on your highlighting cap

Step 1: Make sure your hair is dry. Comb hair straight back or in a loose ponytail. Put on the Highlighting Cap and tie it snugly. Tuck hair in under the cap if it slides out.

Step 2: Pull strands of hair you want to highlight through the holes by pushing the hook through the hole, picking up a strand and pulling it back through with a half turn. But sure the strand is thick enough to fill the entire hole.

Step 3: After you’ve finished, gently comb the entire strand out to make sure the entire strand has been pulled through and detangled. If your hair on the back hangs out of the cap, be sure to protect it with a towel or some plastic wrap.

Step-by-Step Guide to Applying Frost & Design at Home

Create your frosting mixture

Step 1: Put on gloves.

Step 2: Thoroughly mix all Lightening Powder and all Crème Developer in the tub.

Step 3: Open Frosting Protective Crème tube by removing the cap, inverting it, and puncturing top of the tube with the point of the cap. Do not point either end of the tube toward your face while opening or using.

Step 4: Add the entire contents of the tube to the mixture and stir thoroughly using applicator end of plastic styling hook/applicator until you make a thick, creamy paste.

Step 5: Carefully rinse plastic styling hook/applicator.

Apply mixture to dry hair

Step 1: Before applying, double-check the strands you’ve selected to frost. Remember, you must not touch them again with the metal styling hook.

Step 2: To highlight, use the applicator end of the plastic styling hook/applicator to apply mixture generously. Begin at the back of your head and work toward forehead. Use gloved hands to spread mixture evenly over the length of hair.

Step 3: Loosely pile strands on your head and cover with the Overcap. Do not press down on Highlighting Cap or rub the lightening mixture into the Highlight Cap holes. Fasten Overcap securely with plastic hairclip at your forehead.

Step 4: Make your timing checks, using the strand test timer as your guide. For each check use a different strand, remembering to re-coat each strand until your hair is light and free of strong yellow or gold tones.

Step 5: Once strands have achieved the ideal color, discard the Overcap. Leave Highlighting Cap in place and rinse off mixture. Then gently remove Highlighting Cap and discard it along with any remaining mixture.

Shampoo: Leave hair wet. Pour contents of shampoo packet on wet hair and work into a creamy lather. Then rinse thoroughly and towel-blot hair.

Tone: This final step gives hair the delicate tone it needs for brightness and light-reflective qualities. Pour Color Toning Rinse on damp hair, beginning at the hairline and working it through to ends with a comb. Do not rinse out.

Timing guide: During lightening, hair goes through various stages until it reaches the ideal pale yellow. Lightening times vary, depending on natural hair color. The darker the hair, the longer the lightening time. The chart below shows the time range for each of the natural hair-color groups. Begin testing at the minimum time and continue until you have reached the desired color.

Natural hair color approximate timing

Medium to Dark Blonde 20 – 45 minutes

Light Brown 20 – 60 minutes

Medium Brown 40 – 70 minutes

Dark Brown 60 – 70 minutes

Tips on how to achieve frost & design looks

Great highlights are so versatile they’ll never go out of style. Whether you’re looking for subtle and multi-dimensional or bold and striking, there are lots of ways to get the look you want—right at home.

Before you color, remember these important rules:

1. For the best and most predictable results, use a highlighting kit formulated for your hair color. And always do an allergy and strand test to check for allergic reactions and to preview the lightening effect before you commit!

2. Read your instructions carefully, and find your processing time limit. Different hair textures and colors process differently.

3. If your hair has been processed a lot, you may want to consult with a professional to prevent any damage.

Now find the style for you and get ready to rock your brilliant new look.

All-over highlights:

For an all-over multi-dimensional effect, scatter highlights throughout all of your hair. For a more subtle effect, pull 6–8 strands of hair through every third in the cap throughout your whole head. For more of a dramatic change, try every two holes.

Frame your face:

Create a shimmer of light around your face to highlight your best features along with your hair. Use the cap, pull hair through every other hole around your hairline from ear to ear.

Top lights:

With highlights at your crown, your hair will take on a sun-kissed look. To achieve the effect, part your hair where you usually do, and pull on the cap. Then pull a few strands of hair through every hole along your part and around your hairline.

Tip lights:

For a cool dramatic effect on short hair, highlight just the ends. Use the cap to pull out bits of hair every third hole, then carefully apply the mixture to just the tips.

Color: Frost & Design: Champagne H85
Been using this highlight kit for a long time. Have tried other kits but this one is my favorite, by far.
It will lighten hair to a very pale yellow , but don't let that scare you since a toner (purple color to tone out any yellow) is included in the kit.Which other kits don't supply ;)

The Cap has easy to fallow spaced holes to achieve any effect you desire like, thin lights over entire head, chunky or just around the face.
Just fallow instructions and this kit will give you your desired look.

Now on the down side,
-the cap is cheesy and will rip very easily, so please make sure to be careful when pulling out your strands because if the hole is to big the color will bleed under the cap. Also fallow the tip in the instructions, not to push the color to hard on to the cap, this might also make the color bleed through holes.
-also to consider is, that the highlights will not start as close to the scalp as foil or paint on highlights would. ( but foil is almost impossible to do your self and brush on will not lift as many shades as this kit)
**All downers are to consider with any kit under any brand not just this kit by L'Oreal.

Never skip the strand test, since every ones color will differ depending on what color you start with. I would not recommend to use
this kit if you start out with any color darker then dark blonde. There are other kits on the market for Light to Medium Brown hair.

If interested to see what the highlights end up looking like
on a real person just see my picture in my Amazon profile. I also have
a link to another profile of mine listed on my Amazon Profile ( should be under my Picture) which has more pictures of me which were taken after highlighting with L'Oreal Frost and Design.
Yep, I have very long hair and it still works just fine ;)

Good Luck with what ever choice you make :)
Hope it turns out Fabulous !!

Color: Champagne Verified Purchase
I've used this product before, so ordered it again with full confidence. Again, it served its purpose, giving me very pretty highlights. There is enough of the product now to do an entire head of shoulder length, non-layered hair. I am 65 years old, my hair is normal thickness, natural medium brown color with some grey around my temples and scattered over my head. This product, if left on long enough (read the directions!), mixed and put on properly, will give you very nice, very light blonde highlights! You need to go to the very light, almost creamy white color to blend your gray in, as there is no permanent toner in this product, just a toning rinse. The toner rinse, even though it looks dark purple - is imperative to use. Absolutely essential, really. You will go from a somewhat startling whiteish pale yellow (when washed out) to a lovely, classic and classy champagne blonde!

The more hair you pull through the cap, and the more holes in the cap you use, the (much) lighter effect you will have. So be careful if you've not done this before and go easy with the number of highlights or streaks until you see how it works with your own hair and skin color. I have found the Roux "Fanci-Full" toning rinse in "Silver Lining" or one of their other shades for very light bleached hair, to be excellent for keeping your color toned and refreshed between highlighting sessions. These are temporary rinses, so if you don't like the shade you picked, you can easily wash it out with shampoo.

I've tried to download a couple of photographs of my own results.

Color: Caramel Verified Purchase
great product professional Results
I have very long hair, down to my waist and I am 5'8''. I used to go to the salon and pay $300+ for highlights before a cut. After the second time of two different salons messing up my hair, I turned to this after It was recommend to me. Believe it or not, it looks better then the salon. Always great results the cap ensures that you can't mess it up. Be sure to comb you hair to the part where it falls naturally before putting the cap on. Also conb through all tangels before. I never use up all of the product, and my hair is very long. Make sure you wear the gloves and wear just a bra or old teeshirt. IT WILL BLEACH A GOOD SHIRT OR TOWEL! (I learned that one the hard way)

I pull more hairs on the part and though out all the way to the middle back of my head the bottom of my hair stays my "natural" color and my top has golden caramel to blonde high lights through out. I do this my self with a few mirrors. I use the smaller metal pull for more natural look the other one will give you a "chunky look." I have people ask me who my stylist is. My natural color is a ash brown, to blonde. Watch the color as you process it not to over process. And when you re color DO NOT re highlight the tips that are already blonde, or you can fry your hair. Just do the roots. The avoid pain when removing the cap get into the shower rinse dye out. Then take a hand full of your own good conditioner ( I use Redkin so-soft) While the conditioner is still in slowly wiggle off the cap. once off shampoo and condition hair again. Then I put the toner in once hair is combed and out of the shower. Then Style your way.

I have been coloring my hair with this product every 3 months for the last four years.Over all the money I have saved through out the years. Probably close to $1,200 a year!! My natural color is a ash brown, to blonde. I have been coloring my hair with this product every 3 months for the last four years
