Revlon Frost & Glow is the only highlighting product I will use on my hair. I've tried quite a few, both from Sally and from the drugstore, and they typically turn out brassy and orange and then I have to use toner. I know I'm no expert, so that's why I really appreciate a foolproof product like Frost & Glow. My trick is to use a MagiCap, which you can get at Sally's for less than 10$. It's a close-fitting reusable highlighting cap that comes with a teeny metal crochet hook. Frost & Glow's cap and plastic needle are a little flimsy and I feel like there's a risk that the cap might tear easily; with MagiCap, there's none of that fear, and it ensures that I'm not highlighting too much hair. I've used Frost & Glow on color-treated and on natural light ash-brown hair; I select only teeny tiny wisps; I leave it on for the maximum time suggested, and when it's done, the highlights look fantastic. They look professionally done, hand to God. I've never had them turn out brassy or spotty. The product has no ammonia, so the scent is bearable.

The other genius thing I learned (probably from MUA, too) is that the developer and highlighting powder are mixed in a 1:1 ratio. So this means you can mix only what you need, as long as you're mixing equal parts. I have short hair, so I can use one kit for two or three applications, saving me even more money. I simply mix one or two tablespoons of creme into 1 or 1 tablespoons of powder, mix well, and keep the rest separate. The creme bottle closes tightly, and I just fold the free edge of the powder packet and sometimes secure it with a paper clip.

By far the least offensive and easiest to use highlighting product I've ever used, and the MagiCap only makes it better. I have MUA to thank for discovering both of those genius products.
