Hi I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about highlighting your hair after coloring. It is perfectly safe to do so. Just be sure that you use a lightener or what is called a bleach because once you have color on your hair you cannot then put another color on top to pull out the other color so example, this model she had her hair colored and then the highlight was put in. We used bleach for that, bleach with 20 or 30 volume and what that does is that then decolorizes those strands so if I was to use just regular color and put it over this it really wouldn't do anything. It wouldn't change this color. It might bring it up a little bit but it is not going to get you this bright of a streak so whenever you are highlighting your hair after you have colored it always make sure that you use a lightener or what is known as bleach. I highly recommend going to a trusted salon professional so that way you can be sure you get the look that you are going for. This is a little bit more dramatic on this side and then if you look over on this side we have got a little bit more of a natural look going through the hair so it is really just depending on your own personal style and what you are wanting to do. Now if you feel like you have to do it at home the safest way to do it would be to just pull it through a cap, just make sure that cap is on really tight or take a mascara wand or even a toothbrush and just paint those streaks in. A lot o the at home kits, The Color Expert By Loreal, those types of things they actually have lightener in them so that you can get that multi dimensional look and the more dimensional your hair the more modern it is going to be and you will see the movement in it a lot better. So you can definitely highlight your hair after coloring.
