Review of Revlon Frost & Glow Highlighting Kit by clarethebear13
I love love LOVE this product.
Ok first of all, I have naturally light brown hair that I have been dying a dark brown for several years. When I wanted to get closer to my natural color I had no idea how hard it would be! My hairstylist told me that there was pretty much no way she could take my hair from the dark brown it was to the light brown/dark blonde that I wanted unless she did gradual highlights.
Obviously I didn't want to pay for salon highlights, as I am a college student on a tight budget, but I was desperate at this point because my roots were growing in my natural color but my ends were a dark brown. Not a good look. Soooo I perused the hair color aisle for about an hour examining every highlighting kit. I found Revlon Frost & Glow and looked it up on makeupalley when I got home and found all the great reviews. I was still apprehensive, but went ahead and bought it anyway as it was only $6.99 which seemed ridiculously cheap to me.
Anyways, I got home, poked my hair through all the little holes (a time consuming process I admit, but well worth it in the end) as others have mentioned I would recommend a friends help for this part, I used a mirror and was able to get my hair through all the little holes. I used every hole on the cap because I wanted a noticeable lightening, but it would also work well for around the face highlights.
I used the honey highlighting for dark brown hair, and left it on for about 35 minutes since my ends were dark and roots were light. I was terrified when I went to wash it off that I would come out with orange highlights, as some people have described, but I rinsed it off, dried my hair, and found a beautiful blend of caramel and blonde highlights that mask the difference between my roots and ends very well!
This products saved my hair from being an awful two tone mess by turning it into a lovely combination of brown, caramel, and blonde while also saving me a ton of money. I will definitely be using it again for more highlights in the future. :)
