The moderately bad news is that you’ll look like an extra on the set of Steel Magnolias when you put one of these on. The good news is that it's the only near-foolproof way to achieve subtle at-home highlights. Keep in mind your hair’s existing color will influence the highlighting process’s final outcome. Darker hues require stronger peroxide and ammonia mixes and take longer to “lift.”
