Review: L'Oreal Frost and Design Caramel Highlights

For the longest time I have wanted to get my hair to a much lighter shade, I'd had enough of the dark brown. I have tried to dye it a lighter shade and it came out a brassy orange, not the look I was going for, and ever since then I'd gave up on getting it lighter.  Then over the summer my sister was telling me about the highlighting kit that she uses on her dark brown hair I loved the way her hair looked so I thought I'd give the kit a try!

The kit is L'Oreal's Frost and Design Highlights, I got mine in the shade Caramel since it was my first time having this done I didn't want it to be overly dramatic. The kit is around $12 at Walmart, you can also get it from CVS for a little more. The kit contains a highlighting cap, metal hook, gloves, lightening powder, creme developer, plastic mixer, plastic overcap, frosting protective creme, shampoo, toning rinse and of course your directions.

Since my sister has done this to her hair several times before she said she would do mine too. I was really excited to do it, but also really nervous because I didn't know exactly how it was going to turn out. First thing she did was put the cap on my head snugly and began pulling hair through the holes in the cap. Once she got all the strands pulled through, she mixed up the lightening powder, creme developer and the frosting protective cream and put that all over the strands of hair that had been pulled through the cap. Once all that was on she took the plastic overcap and put that over my hair and clipped it so it was secure, all that was left to do was sit and wait.

Looking Good LOL
The directions say for medium to dark brown hair the minimum time is 35 minutes and the maximum time was around 60 or 65, as best I can remember. I only left it on for 35 minutes because it was starting to look really, really blonde and I got a little nervous so I was like this is long enough. Next thing we did was washed my hair with the provided shampoo and then removed the cap and patted my hair dry with a towel. The last step of the process was adding the toning rinse. After applying the toning rinse my hair was no where near as blonde as it was when we first took the cap off.

I am totally happy and excited about my results! It did take me a few days to get used to it, because I am so used to all my dark hair and now all of a sudden I have blonde hair!

I did buy some Brass Banisher just in case. I have a lot of reddish tones to my hair and was afraid it would turn orange, but it didn't and I was able to return the product.

Some tips: You can do this process by yourself, but I would recommend either getting someone to do it for you or lend you a hand. I also recommend having some deep conditioner on hand when you do this, because it does make your hair somewhat dry.

I highly recommend this product if you want to change your hair up with out having to go to the salon.

This is something I will do again for sure and I'll probably leave it on my hair for a little longer next time.

Have you tried L'Oreal Frost and Design? If not would you ever? and if you have did you have great results?


  1. OMG!!!!!!!!!!! That looks AMAZING!!! ^_^

  2. Wow, this looks amazing! I love the blonde! I tried a cap and hook deal once but I was doing my own hair, and I botched it a bit. I think it would have worked better if someone else had done it so they could see the back of my head! lol

    1. Thank you, Martha! There is no way I could have done it myself LOL

  3. I've used these before and loved them. The cap is awesome. I had a girl say she wanted to go to a salon to get highlights like mine and I was thinking "This is from a box!" It looks great on you. BTW, love the cut.

    1. Thank You! I have never been to the salon to get high lights and after using this kit I never will :)
