Have saved a fortune on professional highlights (which all look the same when foils used, IMO). I wanted more subtle, natural-looking highlights. Used this for mini-highlight kit four times and purchased at Wal-Mart for VERY reasonable price. To use a portion of it, all you need do is use a measuring spoon and put equal amounts of solution and powder into pan and mix. The cap has sections for highlighting only the front, front and sides, or all the way to the back. Once you get the hang of it, it's simple as crocheting. I even taught my roomie to do the back for me; the first time, he had trouble because the bottom layer of the cap is not punctured (he was poking my head trying to make a hole). Go in sideways with the hook always facing the same way--whichever way is convenient for you.

Have gotten major compliments about my "hair color". If you color your hair, it looks unnatural because hair is not usually one color--at least not in the subtropics! This makes colored hair look more natural. I have light brown hair but bought the one for blonde hair (was afraid brown would only turn hair strawberry).

The only caveat I would say is move quickly, for the cap is hot. And the reviewers who pulled alot of hair through (use only the circled holes) or freaked out and removed too soon just didn't leave it on long enough. My hair looked as though it would be too yellow when I peeked out of the shower last time (pulled out thicker strands last time), yet when it was dried, it was, as usual, perfect.

I was really nervous about highlighting my long dark brown hair at home - but after reading all the reviews, I felt confident enough to try. I am THRILLED with my results. The highlights are beautiful and very professional-looking. I had a friend help and we had no problems with the cap - although we did opt for a metal needle. I think we panicked a little when, after 25 minutes, my hair was a sickly light yellow. I went ahead and rinsed then and only wish I'd been brave enough to leave it on a little longer and get my highlights a wee bit lighter. But they are a beautiful coppery blonde. And I still cannot quite believe I have highlights this good for $11!

Great product if you kinda know what you are doing. Provides beautiful highlights on my medium blonde hair. Highly recommended if you have medium-dark blonde hair

I have baby thin, delicate blond hair. Darker near to roots, naturally highlighted from mid-length down. This kit gave me too light highlights. And it was VERY drying to my hair. Included cap sucks (You really don't know what areas you are dying)Probably I will not repurchase. Advice: make your 'color test' in sunny day, when you are able to adequately judge new shade.

This product is awesome! I went out and purchased it after seeing all the great reviews here. I used it on my sister's hair and it turned out great. (She refuses to pay $$ to get highlights at a salon so this was a great alternative). She has medium brown hair and we left the color on for only 20 minutes becaue the color started to turn really yellow...it sorta freaked us out...otherwise we would have left it on for 30 minutes. The result was nice subtle highlights which was exactly what she wanted. I just wish the cap was much eaiser to use. It was sorta tricky. Next time I wanna try using it with foils, but don't know how. Has anybody tried with foils?

I have VERY dark brown hair and even in salons my highlights are too brassy! I use this kit for dark brown to black hair and it gives me the best blonde highlights! They are neither orange nor brassy! This also doesn't seem to dry out my hair as much as other highlights do!

This kit gave me yellow highlights, which was not what I was expecting.
The only good thing was that it didn't seem to be that drying to my hair.

First, using the cap is so much hassle. If my cousin wasn't here to help me, it would've kept me hours before I finish. It did give me decent highlights but I probably should've left it longer since it's almost like I didn't do anything to my hair when I'm not out in the sun. I thought that was weird since I left it on for 30 mins. though I have naturally black hair (dyed it brown). I wasn't really satisfied for spending $12.

You know you have a great product when even your hairdresser can't tell the difference! If your hair comes out brassy or orangey, you didn't leave it on long enough. Done right, Frost & Glow will give nice light blonde streaks.

Ive tried all the kits out there including the ones at Sally's and this works the best for me. Use a Magicap which another reviewer suggested, the strands will come out more even and you wont get patches (its so easy to rip the cap that comes in the box)I do have to leave it on 60 minutes to get white strands which can be drying. So i use this for touch ups in between highlights, i get more gentle highlights (cheap) at an Aveda training school. However, when i was doing my hair all over with Frost and Glow, my stylist asked me what salon I went to for my highlights. With Frost and Glow and a Magicap, the results look very very professional!
