TheMilkshakePoem: is it "blue azul"?
Pea Johnson: Does it make a difference in that I am highlighting colored hair as opposed
to natural hair in the amount of time the solution is left on? Thanks!
xXxValiant1xXx: You have beautiful hair highlights! I'd like some advice please. I color my
hair, It's short. I have been coloring all of it but it's getting really
dark now. I want to color only the roots, but I am not sure how I would get
the back oof my head? Any advice?
Rileigh F: I LOVE it! you have the same hair color as me!
mfae123: hi! im chinese n color wont take on my hair so i have to bleach it. i only
want to do the tips of my hair though. would i need foils for that?
YouTips4U: Hi, you can use the same products I used. Be sure to check your foils
periodically until you reach the level of lightening you desire. Remember,
if you do not use heat, you can leave the foils on your head for up to 90
minutes of lightening. If you decide to use the heat method as described on
the package, you will need a hairdryer with cap that goes over your head
and no more than 10 minutes of heat.
brooklyn0a: Hi, I was wondering if the longer you leave in the foil with the product,
the lighter your hair strand gets? I love your videos by the way.
YouTips4U: Hi, I think highlights would be lovely. They look terrific on everyone as
long as the color is suitable. You have very dark hair, so you don't want
to go too light. I think a warm light brown would look very pretty. I would
suggest you do just a few to frame your face. You don't need a lot to
brighten your look and give depth to your hair. Do a test spot somewhere
toward the back of your head to see if you like the color you chose before
you do the rest of your hair. Good luck.
joeblowthehot: youre adorable x
luckotheirishbetoya: Hello I use semi permanent hair dye every 6 weeks. can i add highlights
after i dye hair then wait six weeks and dye hair again then add
chickidy19: Ive dyed my hair a whole bunch of times, and i want to go back to blonde,
so can i highlight my hair using highlights?
YouTips4U: Hi, you can, but it is harder to work with.
Lucia Hodasova: hey! great job on the video! can you tell me what bleach you use?
YouTips4U: Hi, you can highlight dark hair. When hair lifts it goes through different
stages, with the final stage being the lightest blond. You will notice if
you peek into the foil that at first you will see an orangy color before it
turns to a yellow color. Be sure to leave your highlights cooking for long
enough until your color comes up to the desired level you are seeking.
Also, even though you want thick chunks, I always recommend separating the
chunk into more than one foil.
YouTips4U: Hi, I don't want to tell you the wrong thing. I only have personal
experience with the blue for blond highlights. You may have to ask a
colorist. Sorry, I wish I knew for sure.
YouTips4U: I would always recommend that people using foils to highlight because you
can easily separate the hair that has product applied to it from the hair
that is to remain natural. If you cannot find foils, you can always buy
regular aluminum foil, store brand is better than Reynolds Wrap because it
is sometimes thinner, and just cut the foils to size that you can use. Hope
that helps. Good Luck :o)
YouTips4U: Hi, you may need to leave the product on a bit longer next time. You can
redo the yellowish ones if you want, but you'll only need to leave it on
for a very short time to bring it up a bit more. Be sure you check every
five minutes as it will come up quickly once your hair has already been
brookedaniels87: where did you buy the dye brush?
YouTips4U: Hi, the products that I am featuring are salon products. They are the exact
same products that my hairdresser used to use on me. She was kind enough to
tell me what she used so that I could duplicate it at home. If you would
like to highlight your hair at home, but have been going to the salon, you
should definitely ask your colorist what she is using on your hair. It's
always good to know what she is using even if you don't do your own hair,
just in case you switch salons :o)
lam420sel: I want to try this at home and I have a question- how can I match the color
to my already existing highlights if I am only doing the regrowth? I'm
thinking of just trying test strands in an inconspicuous place until I get
it right. Do you think that would work? Thank you so much. I love your hair!
Jsunsetsky87: The developers come in 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50! Also, buying the foils are
such a waste of money!! You can use regular foil and cut them the right
size! Cheaper and thats what salons use!
starshinyblitzy: Hii.. i am of a indian decent (wheatish skin tone) ... and i have natural
dark dark brown hair.. almost black.... i dont want to dye my hair as i
dont want to take extra care of them afterwards... however i want to
highlight my hair.. and i am not sure which color(s) to pick to do so... it
will be my first time.. and at salon it's really expensive.. so i want to
do it at home.. but wud it be advisable to go to a salon my first time or
no? plz help mee!!
YouTips4U: Excellent! Let me know how it comes out. If you need any help just write me
YouTips4U: Hi, if this is your first time, you'll want to check the foil every 15
minutes or so. Everyone's hair lifts differently, so until you know how
long it takes your hair to lift, you have to check it periodically.
CherryGal339: Thanks for all of your help. I'm so subscribing! :)
Kerry McKenzie: You look like Linda Hamiliton
YouTips4U: Apply highlight mixture to hair that has been colored with permanent hair
color can be tricky. You may want to consult a salon for that or speak to
the manufacturer of your product first before use.
Lily Werren: this video was soo helpful!! i have dark brown hair, and i want to do my
highlihgts at home. what color should i choose? i was thinking a light
brown or a golden brown. what do u think? thanks again!!!! :]]]]]]]]
Leapy123456: Hi tips for you- I tried this and it worked pretty good, excpet the
highlights came out a little too yellowish as opposed to whitish blond---
what do you suggest?
Peachy6601: Tnx so much for this!! You have no idea how much this helped me!!! :D
YouTips4U: Hi, I'm assuming you are speaking about all over permanent color rather
than applying highlights. If I'm wrong, please write me back. The best way
to do the back of your head is to enlist a friend, mom, husband, etc. If
none is available then you have to have to use a hand-held mirror and turn
around and reflect it off another mirror to see the back of your head.
YouTips4U: We're working on that every time we film. It's hard but I think we're
getting better and better. My cameraman is my son and he is learning as we
go along. He has a wonderful interest in videography. I'm really glad you
like my videos! Thanks so much for commenting :o)
SugarRose25: I was wondering if you only highlight the amount of hair shown in all these
videos. Do you normally highlight more strands and did you do less for the
video? Do you normally do a very long strand or simply the roots? Thanks!!
Lululila67: Beautiful job! My hair is dark brown/black. What would you recommend for
hair that is that dark?
amandadonut: This was very helpful thank you
YouTips4U: I would suggest you use warm golden highlights to frame your face and then
disburse them a bit toward the back of your head. Keep it subtle, though,
because your hair is very dark. If you've never tried to highlight your
hair you may want to get it done professionally and then try to keep it up
yourself, or if you do it yourself, just try doing a few very thin ones in
an inconspicuous area to see how you like it. Good luck!
GuardShowStopper: Hello i just wanted to ask you how Do you highlight your bangs area?
because I really like your bangs.
Lucia Hodasova: i want to bleach out my brunette hair, with the products in your video but
i have trouble finding it on the Sally Beauty website could you post a link
where you found your products?
YouTips4U: Hi, generally you can highlight hair that has been dyed, however, since you
have dyed your hair many times I'm not sure of the condition of your hair.
I don't want you to suffer breakage, so if your hair is not in good
condition (i.e. dry or damaged) it may not be in healthy enough condition
to withstand highlights. You may want to consult with a color professional
before attempting this for the first time. Be sure you go to someone who is
MsLM66: Thank you for a great easy to understand video. I just finished doing my
own lights and they came out great!! I have medium brown hair and wanted
blonde lights. So, I used Salon Care 40 max lift and Loreal quick blue
powder. Highlights took exactly 50 minutes. Your method is so much better
than the "cap" method for sure. Thank you for sharing this and showing us
that anyone can highlight at home for pennies!
angelicax3: You're so awesome! Thanks for the GREAT tips! I'm highlighting my hair
YouTips4U: Hi, foils are always helpful because they will prevent the bleach product
from getting on the hairs that you don't want bleached.
pmprdchfjenpellzy: @mfae123 You'll not need foil except to block the bleach from getting onto
hair you don't want lightened. If you are only doing the ends, you might
want a friend to help you keep the line level, but you shouldn't need to
use any foils. Bleach will take a while to lighten to a consistent color,
so you may need to reapply. The 40 volume developer (not a volumizer,
that's the measurement of lift) will generally lift up to 4 levels in one
kayla220220: can u reuse the foil if necessary
TraciM71: thanks for your videos! i have been afraid to do my own hair, but have
always wanted to! I am fed up with what salons charge!! i am going to try
it on my own next time (thanks to your instructions!)!
scarlethread08: thank you for your informative video. i've been using med blonde (nice 'n
easy) on my brown-going-grey-hair. my hair colour now, is more or less the
colour it was before the hairdresser put copper on most of the head, plus a
blond streak at the front. what i would like to know is: can i use the same
method you demonstrated with the bleach on thin strands of the med.blonde
coloured hair without the hair turning orange? i use 40vol creme bleach (i
live in the uk). thank you.
YouTips4U: Hi, thanks so much for sharing. I'm so glad you found my video helpful :o)
xlive4lax12: hi! just wondering: can you use regular foil if you dont have the special
kind?? great video by the way its super helpful!!
YouTips4U: You may want to consider consulting with a hairdresser first to make sure.
You can probably use a semi-permanent hair color like Clairol Natural
Instinct successfully. Please stop back and let me know who it came out :o)
YouTips4U: I'm so glad you liked my video! Since your hair is dark brown, I think you
should stay with the warm colors. It depends on how light you want to lift
your highlights, but I think a warm golden dark blonde would be nice.
