Let's talk about the advantages and disadvantages

Like any type of staining, highlighting has its own advantages and disadvantages. Of course, there are more positives than negative ones. Representatives of the beautiful half of the population of the planet choose highlighting for the following reasons:

  • gray locks are painted over as much as possible;
  • harmonious selection of colors helps to hide defects in appearance;
  • only part of the curls is exposed to the negative effect of the coloring matter;
  • the need to systematically tint curls absent;
  • visually increases the amount of hair;
  • appearance is natural due to the smooth transition of shades.

As for the shortcomings, according to the girls, highlighting has the following disadvantages:

  • it can not be done on the newly painted curls;
  • between procedures need to endure at least one month;
  • black hair is difficult to lighten and with frequent dyeing lose their elasticity and shine;
  • the duration of staining takes from 3 to 4 hours;
  • To obtain the desired result, you need to contact a professional stylist, and the cost of highlighting can not be attributed to the budget price segment.

Despite this, reviews say that highlighting on black hair looks very impressive. A woman emphasizes her individuality, courage and desire for change. In many reviews, girls say that highlighting on pitch hair makes it look visually younger. After thirty years, the black color of the curls begins to age its owner, emphasizing even the smallest wrinkles on the face. White or other color strands conceal these flaws.
