I've been using this kit on and off for years. I used to pre lighten my very dark brown hair with a caramel hair color and then pull it thru the cap and add highlights. It always came out so light and beautiful. I now use it to touch up my ombré. It works great to lighten my dark brown hair up to a yellowy level. After I always have toner handy to get the yellow tones out and get very light almost platinum highlights. A few important tips (I am a stylist): always poke holes in the cap first. It makes it way raise to pull it thru. Always wear a plastic cap (can even be a plastic grocery bag) under the cap that comes in the kit. This ensures that there will be no bleach leakage (causing spots) if you accidentally punch the hole too large or rip it. Always follow up with a toner if the result is too brassy rather than re bleaching and damaging your hair. Never put this product over already bleached hairs. This can severely damage you hair over the long run, try refreshing the brassiness with a toner and only applying bleach to roots. All and all a great product if you are careful with it! Will continue to purchase when I don't feel like spending a few hundred at the salon.

I bought this in the shade "Honey". I have black permanent dye on my hair, so I was really nervous about using this. I thought it'd come out orange and brassy. I was so wrong. It came out beautifully, no brassiness and little damage. Will definitely repurchase in the future when I need to touch it up. I do recommend doing a strand test (the kit has instructions) so that you know how long to leave it in your hair.

Ive been using this since I was 18 years old (now in my early 30's). This has been the absolute best highlighting kit, that never gives my dark hair brassiness, and always comes out a perfect cool honey blonde, and gets more better everytime I touch it up!I used to paint biolage streaks in my hair using a comb but recently started using the cap, and although it can take a bit long to really get the perfect strands out, it works great everytime. One thing you can do to make sure you get to the root as much as possible is make sure the cap is as tight as you can.*I also use the highlighting cap when wanting to make permanent hair color streaks-works really perfect too! Plus I always worry about the PPD toxic dye touching my scalp, so I sometimes use the highlighting cap and use ALL of the holes and use a permanent hair color, then a week later I then use the highlighting cap for the highlights and only use the "circled" holes. ;)

AMAZING.I am never paying salon prices again. I was in a quandry this morning, as I had the impulsive urge to get my hair highlighted, but didn't feel right shelling out the cash to get it done professionally.Read the reviews and went for it, and I am extremely impressed. I did the honey highlights for my medium brown hair. It turned out natural, professional, and beautiful looking. The only negative aspect is that it is quite labor intensive. Simple and easy to do, but labor intensive none the less. It is best you have someone with you to help you out, specifically with the back parts. I struggled awkwardly for over an hour with a mirror trying to get the crown and back finished, and eventually gave up as I had no one with me to help. But it still looks brilliant just as a half head.

I normally have medium brown hair. I used this kit to OMBRE my hair, not as a highlighting kit. So I have no experience with the cap. Anyways! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Actually makes me hair blonde and not brassy orange. I split my hair on two sides. Then I start placing color on my tips. Then after 20mins I add more higher up on my hair then after 15 add some more a little closer to the crown of my head then about 8 mins later hop in the shower and I get beauitful ombre. Highly recommend this kit! I used the blonde to light brown kit. I've used the medium brown honey one once and wasn't as crazy about the results as I am with the blond to light brown. It doesn't have brassy notes in it like the honey kit does.

I'm a chicken! I've made a few hair mistakes so I'm gun-shy. My hair was blonde through my 30's but in my 40's it darkened to a level 7 and had steelgray. Late 40's saw me go about 40% gray. Hubby wanted no gray ;-) So I started dyeing. At first okay - about an 8 to 9 but over time it got a bit yellowy. Had a salon do it and it came out RATHER DARK. So when it was time to do it again, I went a shade lighter which came out RATHER LIGHT and bit yellowy (even though I use neutral). Within a few days I put a darker blonde on it - 2/3 looked perfect - the roots were still a bit "hot". Wanting to break up the solid color, I tried the blonde/lt. brown kit. Knowing my very curly hair is porous. I checked at about 20minutes and the strand was WHITE. Panic set in and I jumped in shower to rinse. While rinsing I saw white streaks. But when I got out they were all but gone. So I have very faint highlights that are fine, but barely noticeable. Think I'll wait till my next color - color a tad darker and try the highlights again for more like 35 minutes. Worth a try again. Poked holes first. Used circled holes. Did myself using metal hook. Conditioned with cap on, slid it off and followed with shampoo and toner/conditioner. ** After air-drying my curls, I've upgraded this to 5 lippies. It really is perfect - just the right amount of lift to add a very natural sunkissed sparkle - no yellow no brassy. LOVE!

I just finished highlighting my hair with the kit for medium brown to dark brown hair. I absolutely love the result! I was a little scared because of all the warnings I've got against highlighting in general and doing it after dyeing with permanent all over color. Two days ago I dyed my hair with Ion Color Brilliance (4R - Med Red Brown). My hair felt sooo soft afterwards and the color was pretty much dead on with the swatch at Sally's but was still a bit darker than I wanted. I have long, layered naturally medium brown hair with some natural reddish blonde highlights. I havent done any type of chemical processing on my hair for 5 years....that being said, I am thrilled that my first experience on my went so well and only cost me $25 vs. $200 at a solon!!!As for the revlon kit in particular, the cap wasnt as horrible as I expected. It took a couple tries to get the hang of it and didnt hurt at all. I definitely recommend getting someone to help tho. I had my husband do the back....I cant even begin to imagine what a pain it would be to do that on your own. I also recommend doing a really good deep conditioning a day or two before hand because the highlighting REALLY dries your hair out. Thats the only con and why I gave it 4 out 5 lippies. I did two sample swatches beforehand...the first was left on for 20 min (directed time) and the other for 35 min. The 20 min showed hardly any difference at all and the 35 min gave a subtle effect, which is what I was looking for. It took my husband about 20 min to get the product on my hair so taking that into consideration I left it on another 25 min. You can definitely see the difference but its not drastic, looks very natural and to my delight very much like the box sample photo!I will definitely continue to use this product. Btw, even tho it dried out my hair, I saved so much doing it myself that I dont mind spending and extra $20-$30 at the salon for a deep conditioning treatment...I like to get them every now and again anyway :-)

Wow I'm so impressed by this product! I have had numerous bad experiences at salons before, so I'm not one to go have my hair done professionaly. However, I realize I'm no pro myself, so I am a bit nervous to do my hair. WIth this kit however, it really was very easy and gave me very pretty results! Pulling my hair through the cap was a bit time consuming, and I had to have my husband help me with the back side of my head. But once you get that done, putting on the dye is easy, and compared to other dyes I've used it doesn't stink terribly and make my eyes water by the strong smell. They also provide like a plastic bag thing to put over that which worked pretty well. I left my dye on about 20 minutes total. I checked in the mirror and it looked slightly orange so I was worried I had ruined my hair, but after jumping in the shower and shampooing I was pleasantly surprised! My medium/dark brown hair now has pretty blond highlights that are natural looking. The kit I used was the "honey" highlighting kit made for medium to dark brown hair. The only word of warning I have for others is make sure to check the dye frequently so it doesn't get too light on you. I did a strand test which showed I needed about 50 minutes time to get the color I wanted. But once the plastic bag was on my head I think the heat from my scalp made it process faster, so I really needed only 20 minutes. Just be wary of that, but if you are considering this kit BUY IT! It's the best at home highlighting results I've ever had.

I can't recommend this product enough I can't the negative reviews some people are giving it! I got the one for medium to dark brown hair. I pre punctured all the holes as I wanted a dramatic change and brushed my long thick hair thouroughly before starting. I got my boyfriend to pull thin pieces of hair through every hole and he did complain of getting tired so we kept having tea breaks every 20 mins! But all in all it took about 4o mins to pull all hair thriugh evenly. Then I brushed all the hair coming out of the cap throughly to make sure there were no loops. We then mixed the product and put it on all over. I was slightly worried my hair would turn crazy colours as I had previously dyed it with a dark auburn but no! The colour is beautiful blonde highlights all even through my hair. It has made my hazel eyes look more blonde! haha! My hair and eyes match xDIt has given me so much confidence and I feel I look healthier with my new colour. It's been about a month now and I just feel happier in general with my new doo. Oh yeah and now my likl sis wants the same thing for her hair :0) So definately get it if you're feeling drab because it's worth it!Add details: I bought 2 boxes but 1 was enough for my long hair. If you have short hair you probably need half a packet.

This is the only product I will use if a member of the family asks me to give them highlights. I love this product although it does have its downfalls. You cannot do this to yourself (well,- maybe but it would be awful difficult- not like other at home one step dye kits) It is time consuming (all in all it takes around an hour and a half which I guess is less than if you have to sit in a salon but sitting in a salon and having them do the work is easier) It can be painful (to the individual you are highlighting) to have the hair pulled through the cap which is a universal fit and in my experience not tight enough. It can also be messy and the bleach will stain. The packaging is cheap and utilitarian and It also hurts pulling the cap off. However, I have never EVER had a bad highlight job come out of using this little $10.00 kit. Fact is everyone I have ever done has gotten huge compliments on their hair. I have used this for at least 10 years!! I would recommend this to anyone, I have used the newer, so called easier brush on highlights which have done nothing but leave orange splotches on everyone's hair I have tried to use them on and I have always had to go back to the store to buy this kit to fix their hair! I will never use anything else- a highlighting staple!!!!!
