|Example on what your hair might look like after prepared|
for highlighting at home
So, if your hair is short or shoulder length and you want to dye your hair at home without any assistance, then you may want to try this method. You may try this on long hair too, but long hair will likely to tangle too much and you will have horrible experience, so the shorter your hair the better.
Things you need
- Hair colour;
- A towel or anything else to protect your shoulders;
- A swimming hat;
- A crochet hook;
- Possibly, scissors.
|Swimming hat and a crochet hook|
First of all, take your swimming hat and a crochet hook, try to hook many holes in the hat with the crochet hook. If the hat is made of HARD silicone or latex, then you may use the scissors to make multiple holes in the cap. If the swimming cap is made of fairly SOFT material, you may be ok to puncture holes with a crochet hook, providing the crochet hook is sharp enough for this. Use your own judgement, but be very careful not to tear the hat as it does tear quite easily if you are not careful.

Once you've pulled out the hair that you want to highlight, get the dye ready and follow the instructions of your hair colour leaflet.
Also, the good news is that once you got the cap prepared you can wash it and use it in the future!
I have prepared a YouTube video where I talk about how to do highlights at home, but it does not have any additional information, so you are welcome to skip it. Watch it if you prefer listening to reading.
Do you dye your hair or have it natural? If you dye it, do you go to the hairdressers or do it at home? Do you wear your hair in highlights?
