Ombre At Home

So I know the ‘Ombre’ Hair trend isn’t as huge as it was, but I personally still love the hair style and so does my sister.

My sister has had ombre hair for a while now and her hair was down to her hips, she recently got it cut to just below her shoulders and only an inch was showing of her ombre. So she asked me to re-do it for her and I took the opportunity to also blog about it incase you want to do this to your hair without forking out to have it do in a hairdressers.

Ombre is such an easy thing to do.

Here is my tips on how to Ombre your hair at home!

Before You Begin

Please note that your hair will dye better if its ‘Virgin hair’ meaning you haven’t dyed it before.
If you have dyed your hair it might take a little longer and another application before it turns out perfect.
Make sure you test the bleach on your skin 48 hours before you use it to make sure you are not allergic to it.

I’ve been ombreing my hair for a few years now and i love how it looks in my hair. I’ve tried so many hair dye’s and i always go back to the same one. Garnier Nutrisse Pre Lightener you can find this in boots and superdrug. I love this product and don’t find it damaging unlike other bleaches.

Instructions

how to ombre

1. Brush your hair to get out any knots.

2. Choose where you want the ombre to start from ( I go from the chin)

3. Spilt your hair from your ears and clip half of it up.

4. Mix the Lightning Creme together (If you have dark hair i would use 2 sachets if you have light i would only use 1)

5. Start putting the product on the ends on your hair in little sections and rub in, work up your hair to  where you want it to start. Do this to each section on your hair.

6. After you’ve put the product all over your hair, go back through your hair and check your haven’t missed any strands of hair. Take the rest of the product and rub it into your hair and then put it in foil.

7. I leave it on for 20 minutes then check my hair, if its not as light as i want it to be i leave it on for another 20 minutes. Keep in mind the colour you see won’t be the colour it will turn out after you wash it, so if its really light it might be a couple shades darker when washed out.

8. Wash hair throughly and use the conditioner you got in the box. If you want you can use a hair mask because bleaching can damage your hair.

This is what my hair looked like before i dyed it, my hair is black and after 40 minutes my ends are a nice gingery blonde colour. It looks nice and i think this hair trend won’t dye out any time soon. After ombreing your hair use hair masks and spilt end treatments just to help repair your hair.
