Link ----> Create Gorgeous Highlights at Home Part One
There's a part 2 of the vid there on the site as well...
Basically, can someone tell me if this is the best way to go about it? I know there are several methods and I want to know which one will give me the best results. This one? The weaving method (with the rattail comb)?
Also.. I have colored hair which is a dark auburn-ish color, pretty heavy on the red as I used a 'color booster'.. so I'm not sure what color it will turn out to be once I start the lifting process.
I bought some stuff at Sally's last night but I wanted to come on here and ask people who know what they're doing first before I take the leap. Here's what I got:
-rat-tail comb to make sections
-20 volume developer
-Clairol "Kaleidocolors" tonal powder lightener.. it says it 'lightens up to 5 levels and adds neutral/beige tones to dark brown to light blonde hair'.
What I'm going for is nothing drastic, I want like strawberry blondish honey colored highlights. Is that lightener with the toner built in any good? They had another one that added cool tones, but my hair is warm colored from the red so I don't want it to be all jacked up! Should I use a separate toner or a regular tube of color instead of the lightener/toner combo?
If someone could give me some insight/advice, I would be SO grateful! I know people always recommend going to a pro to have it done, but with a little instruction I'm perfectly capable of doing this myself, I'm sure. I just need to know that I'm using the right products and technique, and if i'm not, let me know what to buy and I'll exchange it for something better.
Many thanks in advance!
