DIY highlights for the first time!

So today I decided to experiment with highlights for my hairrr! Okay first I have to say that I used the foil method. I bleached random little sections of my hair using Hortaleza Bleaching Powder and oxidizing lotion 12%/40 vol and left the bleach on for 15 minutes it lifted the color so much but the color is very orange!

So after I bleached my hair, I dyed my hair with a box of Revlon Colorsilk Light Ash Brown.
And this is the result!

This is under natural light, it made my hair ashy which I really love!

And this is under daylight lighting, my camera is really funky lolz. Doens't really show what's accurte, but the photo above is the more accurate one.

I expect my hair to be a lot lighter after few more shampoos and the highlights will really show up. I am just really hoping that the dye won't fade so bad that the orange brassiness of the bleached parts will show through. EEK!

I don't know if you can find in the PI but in the US I ise a toner or purple shampoo to remove the orange and then its blond where the orage parts were:) hope it helps!

Wow-- your great at this DIY hair stuff! @_@ Someday I hope to be as good at it. (The more I try, though, the less near-disasters I go through. haha.)

Anyway, even noew, before the colour washes lighter, those highlights are goorgeouuss. <3

@Joy, thank you for the advice. Sadly I cannot find a purple shampoo here in Philippines... But I heard of mixing grape kool-aid/purple food dye in your shampoo can also do the same cancelling out the brassiness of hair color. I'm gonna try it and tell you all if it works! :)

@Noxin, thank you sweets! :)
