Darn you, Revlon Frost and Glow!

Remember my tweet the other day regarding the $10 highlights deal? It turned out to be for only 2 highlights. Being the cheap thrifty gal I am, I decided to buy an at-home highlighting kit instead. Looking back, the truly frugal thing would have been to simply leave my hair as it was, which was perfectly fine. 

Revlon Frost and Glow - My Experience

For the record, I have used these kits before and have had wonderful results. The Herbal Essences highlighting kit with the lime green comb is perfect! But, that wasn't the kit that was on sale for $5.

*Beware, the results you are about to see are real. Yes, I even performed the strand test!

Revlon Frost and Glow review
 See that clump of silver hair in the lower left? That's not the mistake of my camera - some of the highlights turned gray! I can't explain that little pink fuzz on the right, other than to say it fits right in with my "one bad thing after another" mentality of the moment. I feel like a ticked off senior citizen.

Of course, I read all the bad reviews of Revlon Frost & Glow after doing this to my hair. The grayness, the breakage, the mixed shades of color all over your head, the frustration with the stupid hair dye cap that rips out pieces of hair, and the inaccuracy of the strand test - all online and waiting to warn people before using this kit, if only they would take the time to Google it. 

They are never going to let me hear the last of this at work.

To be fair, I later discussed this with a hair expert and learned that hair highlighting kits that involve pulling small amounts of hair through a cap with a hook, such as the Revlon Frost & Glow, are only intended to be used on short hair. She couldn't believe I would even attempt this with my long hair.
