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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Be careful it lightens really fast. But if you rinse too soon your hair may be Orange.
Keep looking at a test area to check for lightness. Read more
I have used the L'Oreal frosting kit for years. Of all of the brands this one is consistently the best. The only thing I wish they would fix is the color of the holes on the cap. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Miz B
