Default Lowlights at home?

Hey all!

So for a while now i've wanted to put in some lowlights. But the thing is I want to do them at home, especially because i'm on a budget.

I already dye my hair so I'm not really worried about that part. I would love some darker red, and as much as I would like to try the henna route I have read so many places about bad reactions to henna and dye that I would rather not risk it!

Anyways, has anyone done this at home? And did it work out for you?

Low Poo: TJ's TTT, ACV/beer Rinses once a month or so, Soap Bars once in a while, Carols Daughter Khoret Amen shampoo
Conditioner: AOHR, AOGPB, Suave Coconut, vo5 Kiwi, etc
Style
HE gels, occasional hairspray, Garnier Fructis Curl shaping gel spray, FSG when I actually make it
Honey/AVG only in the summer

HG I fell into the craze and my hair is happy with Deva! No Poo, Angel, and one condish = awesome hair day.
My hair loves Protein!

Well I'm going to use Henna after all. I got 100% henna which isn't supposed to have any reactions to hair dye. I'll test it out and then just wing it and "paint on" where I want my low lights. If it looks bad, well, you only live once right?
