I'm not gonna lie, I like ombre hair. I know some people think it looks like you haven't done your hair in a very long time, but I don't really care. I like it and I wanted to try it. And I did. I bought L'Oreal Preference Wild Ombres in Ombre No.1 (for light to dark brown hair) and hoped for the best.
Before and after... which got me thinking it might not be a good idea to dye after all.
Here's what you get in the package. As you can see, you also get a little plastic brush for the application of the color. And it works quite well.
I mixed the color and applied it to the lower third of my hair with the brush. I didn't really know what would happen, so I didn't dare to go too high... I almost expected my hair to turn blonde or even worse - orange. I applied more on my ends and less toward the roots. I left the color on for about 45 minutes. The result isn't exactly as I imagined it to be, but it could be much worse. It's fun to see my hair in a different color without changing it too much. I still think my hair looks best when it's dark brown... the tips can be a bit lighter, I don't mind. Here's a photo of my ''new'' hair. A bad one though. I couldn't photograph my hair properly to show you the way it looks from behind, but you'll get the idea. Chocolate brown to dark chocolate to dark brown. I know some people will think I haven't dyed my hair in a very long time, but I kind of like it.
What do you think of ombre hair? Would you/did you try it?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
