I decided that I would ignore the instructions on the KAIR refill box and do my own thing. So I put my hair trust in the hands of my boyfriend and taught him how to use this product on my hair but instead of using the cap, by using foils like they do it in the salon. I just dyed my roots in order to not over-process my already coloured and damaged hair.

I left it in longer than what the box says too. Rinsing each of the three sections as it reached the point where it was white and not orange. I then shampooed and conditioned it well. The result was platinum roots and soft hair :) As you can see some of the orange from the salon colour is still present but the roots which the KAIR coloured came out blond.

Don't think I'm ever going back to the salon. My boyfriend and KAIR did a great job. Now I can use the money for shoes instead.

Kair Highlighting Kit

The first time I highlighted my hair myself I used this kit. Loved everything about it.
So easy to mix and apply.
I ''stripped'' my dark brown hair with the blonde highlight and dyed it over with an auburn colour hair-dye to achieve the red I wanted at the time.
I was amazed at how professional looking my highlights turned out, months later people were still asking at which salon I got it done.
Comes with a cool little hair-dye brush and gloves that you can wash and re-use.

Hair dependent

My go-to product for hair highlighting. Works really well on my hair and leaves it with minimal damage. Lightens within seconds. However when I used it on a friends hair it didn't take to her hair very well even though she has never died her hair prior to the highlighter..

Exceeds Expectations

I was extremely skeptical about purchasing this product. I've never highlighted my hair at home due because I was always scared I would mess it up. The kit comes with the necessary application tools so it makes it much easier. It bleaches hair quite quickly so be mindful of time. My hair is quite dark and it took about 20 minutes to achieve the brown color I desired. Works well with Indian hair. Does not dry out hair either so that's another big plus.

Kair Highlighting Kit

I used this product many years ago when my hair was shoulder length and it worked great for me.

What I remember is that you need to check your hair to see if it is the correct color otherwise you will get a not so nice color. :-) I learned that and always took an extra 5 minutes to get the best color, especially at the roots.

Always use good conditioners afterwards.

If you cannot afford a hairdresser and you have someone that can help you, this is a great product.
Just remember to take extra care of your hair afterwards.

Kair Highlighting Kit

I bought this product after salons quoted me too much to put highlights in my waist long hair. I also purchased the colour I wanted to use after the highlights and I was pleasantly surprised how quick this highlight kit worked on my black hair. The results were stunning without leaving my hair dry and strawlike. I spent R200 in total for the kit including additional hair colour compared to the salons quote of R750 to colour and highlight my hair.

Kair highlighter

I've used this kit to strip or add streaks to my hair for years. I use the refill kit, as I use foil to add it to my hair. If I use it to go blonde or have blonde highlights, I add gentian violet to my conditioner to get the brassiness out. I also treat blonde coloured hair with Hask's Blue Camomile Deep Conditioner every other week.
This is definitely a home kit, so you won't get those ideal tones you would at the salon. If you are not prepared to tone and take care of your hair afterwards, this is rather not for you.

Kair Highlighting Kit

This is not good. I don't think any home bleaching kit is good. None of these kits come with a toner nor any kind of bond that strengthens or provides elasticity.

You end up with yellow or orange tones and extremely brittle hair. It is just not worth it. Invest in a great hairdresser instead.

I used this product once. Will definitely never use it again and not recommend it to anyone.

Rather pay a bit extra and go to a hairdresser

I used this product a few years ago and ended up with bright orange streaks.

I followed all of the instructions and left the dye in for the correct amount of time, but the end result was horrific. I ended up spending hundreds of rands to have my hair re-done at a hairdresser.

I would not recommend this product

Kair highlight kit

I have medium blonde hair, and I use the kair highlight kit every few months to add some colour. People always comment on how nice my hair colour looks! This highlight kit is very effective and lasts long, as I wash my hair everyday and it takes about 12 weeks before I need to redo the colour. It gives a professional look. I don't follow the recommended time on the box, as I keep it in for about 25 mins for that natural blonde look. It is however VERY drying on my hair, and wish that Kair would include a treatment or conditioner in the box for afterwards! I have to use a damage reconstruct conditioner because my ends get so dry!

Otherwise, for the quality and price I will keep using.

An Old Favourite

I use to use this 10 years ago when I was in high school to highlight my hair. The cap really works well just make sure you part your hair correctly before putting it one.
I had a friend who was a redhead who tried it and hers went white really quickly so take note and really whatch your hair and the colour change.

Kair Blonde Highlighting Kit

I have been pondering over lightening my hair for some time now, and given my past experiences with going Blonde I was a bit scared. So after walking into my local clicks store, I found myself in the hair section, staring down at a Blonde highlighting kit.

I did not want to use the cap, I sort of wanted a free hand approach, so I opted for the refill kit as opposed to the full kit. Before going crazy on my whole head, I decided to do a peek a boo piece behind my left ear.

In mixed 1 part powder with 2 parts creme activator to create a nice smooth blue paste. I then proceeded to coat the full strand of my hair with the mixture. I then covered with foil to prevent it from mixing with my other hair.

My hair is dark brown in color, so I waited the maximum time (55mins - withe checking it periodically)before washing off.

I was super pleased with the result!!! My hair lightened up extremely well, Its like a dark blonde color - Nothing brassy or orange as I feared. I want it to be platinum blonde though so I will repeat the process in another 2 weeks or so.

After rinsing off, I treated the color section with my John Frieda Full Repair deep conditioner. I think this really helped as after styling, My peek a boo blonde piece was super soft, glossy, and healthy looking... A really good start!!

Once I become more brave I think ill definitely go more bold!
