- The first time I went ombré I decided to DIY it and I must say I was very happy with the look I achieved. I used a pre-lightening kit and then went over with a blonde dye to get the effect I wanted, a method I would definitely recommend.
- The second time, I got my ombré professionally done and to be honest, I preferred the job I did myself. I felt like I could achieve the same results for a fraction of the price at home.
- The third time I ombréd my hair was actually just over a week ago and I went for the DIY approach again. This time, there was a product on the market that met my needs; L'Oréal Paris: Préférence Wild Ombrés and I am very happy with the way it turned out. This was a lot easier and less time consuming than my first DIY method and the one I would go for again. So I thought I would share some more information on the L'Oréal Wild Ombrés kit.
The L'Oréal kit comes in 2 shades in Australia - one for light blonde to blonde hair and the other for dark blonde to medium brown hair. The kit comes with an easy to use brush to apply the colour with which makes it a lot easier to get an even coat and achieve a more natural look rather than a stark change of colour. All you need to do is leave the colour on for 25 to 45 minutes depending on how light you want your ends to go and then wash the colour out in the shower and follow up with the shampoo treatment they provide. Easy as pie and a great, affordable option at just under $20 from your local supermarket.
