I bought this Loreal Paris brush-on dip dye ombre kit on the weekend because I thought my hair has been looking quite dull recently and ombre ends is a little less dramatic than dying all my hair. Also, I knew I wouldn't have any allergic reactions (as I usually do to hair dye) because this stuff doesn't (or shouldn't) come into contact with my scalp. Thumbs up from me! I really wasn't sure how this would turn out, so I went for a proper ombre kit rather than just buying blonde hair dye and dying the ends. This set came with a handy little brush into which you put a bit of hair dye and brush it through you hair. The dye had to stay in my hair for a lot longer than usual hair dye so I had no idea what would happen, and hoped it wouldn't turn ginger!
I love the end result! Especially now that I've embraced my natural curls, it makes my hair look more lively and I really love the golden colour (not ginger, yay!) The only downside it that it's made my ends very dry, well, more dry than usual and it still smells slightly of dye, although that fades after every wash. I'm not sure how even the dye is, and the only way to find out is by straightening my hair, which I don't plan to do in this dry, wintery season. I'm glad I liked how this turned out because the dye is permanent (and I hardly ever cut my hair, I want to grow it out), I usually go for semi permanent dyes so that they'll eventually fade out and I won't have to commit to one colour.
What do you think of ombre hair? Have you tried it?
