Recently, I’ve become so bored with my hair and have been weighing up many different options for a new look for autumn. I’ve considered all ends of the spectrum from a cut, to an all over deep red dye. A little while ago I picked up some BBlonde bleach, tried to apply it evenly to my hair to lighten it, and it came out looking more like highlights, except these highlights were actually barely noticeable. I decided the other day I was going to take the plunge and attempt to ombre my hair…


I picked this L’Oreal Wild Ombres kit up during my lunch break in Superdrug, it was £7.49 and you can purchase it here. A pack of gloves and a really handy dip dye brush came in the kit. You mix together the developer, lightening cream and activating power, shake those within the developer bottle and come out with a nice thick mixture which can be spread over your brush for your hair. The developer bottle did eventually start to clog for me which meant I ended up taking off the cap and pouring it straight from the bottle onto the brush, so things did get a bit messier.

How I did it…
I initially left the bleach on for twenty minutes, then when I washed it all off, conditioned and dried my hair, I saw that there was barely any difference made. Luckily, I still had some of the mixture left over, so I added on a bit more, specifically on the ends of my hair and strands near my face, and left this on for about 25-30 minutes. It’s quite hard to tell when a difference has been made as there is no accurate representation when the mixture is over your hair. It is also not clear to see once you’ve washed it off, but you can test individual strands by wiping off the mixture and checking the colour.

To stop your hair from getting dry it is very important to condition it. I conditioned mine using the John Frieda Sheer Blonde tone correction conditioner, I left this on for about an hour. Once it was dry I also thoroughly oiled the ends of my hair using the Organix ‘argan oil of Morocco’. When it comes to styling or maintaining this hair, I’d definitely suggest anything from the John Frieda Frizz Ease range.
