I've liked the ombre' hair look since it became popular few years ago but my hair was too short, at the time... and then I usually have a very long pondering/hibernation period before embracing new trends.
I'm actually getting fed up with my longer hair, so I thought it was perfect timing to try the ombre', before my next haircut.
I decided to go diy and used the L'Oreal Preference Wild Ombres in No1 Dip Dye Hair Kit From Light Brown To Dark Brown.
I had actually never ever dyed my hair before but the whole process was really easy, instructions clear and the brush just perfect to achieve this result. The only thing I straggled with was the smell of bleach which was sooooo overpowering that I had to stop and dry my tears a few times; I guess it could be expected but It was seriously (nearly) unbearable and considered stopping midway.
You can leave this formula on between 25/45 mins depending how light you want to go and I went for the safe middle-of-the-road 35 minutes.
