If you follow me on Instagram, you'd see that I hastily bought a L'Oreal Wild Ombre kit ahead of Reading Festival this week. As a girl who hasn't seen her natural hair colour since primary school, colouring my hair shouldn't phase me as much as it does, but I was still pretty scared. The last time I dip dyed my hair I used Schwarzkopf XXL in Ice Blonde (00A) and tin foil. It worked out fine, but it was hard work, so I was intrigued by this kit. I chose Number 2, for dark blonde/medium brown - they didn't seem to have one for red hair ;)
The kit itself was wonderful, mainly because of the little plastic brush which I have cleaned and kept! It made the 'natural' application so simple, and there were no harsh lines like the last time I did it. After mixing up the colourant, you simply squirt it in between the teeth of the brush, and comb it through your chosen areas. The highest mine goes is just under my ear. I allowed mine to develop for around 30 minutes, and gave it a good hot wash in the shower afterwards, before conditioning the hell out of it! (Hey, it's bleach, it'll do bad things to your hair!)
Et voila! So what do you think? I really love it, and I've got some lovely compliments. I feel like it really brightens my whole look and makes all my hair seem lighter. My only regret is not doing it at the beginning of Summer! I wouldn't say that the bleach has dried out my ends that much, but I will definitely be taking extra care from now on (Avon Dry Ends Serum is pretty great!)
What do you think of my new ombre hair? Will you be trying one of the L'Oreal kits, or are you happy colouring your hair the old school tin foil way?
