|New favourite at home kit!|
I have found a new love in at home hair dyeing kits with my trial of the L’oreal Paris Preference Wild Ombre Kit. This kit makes ombre so easy and affordable to do at home and I had hardly any problems, that I didn’t create myself. I used Shade No. 2 for dark brown to medium blonde hair.
Background information: I have dyed hair (chocolate brown) which is shoulder length and wavy. My hair isn’t normally very dry but it is quite thick. As my hair base colour is a rich red/brown this kit gave me a bit of a fiery chocolate brown to strawberry blonde looking ombre.
The Applicator brush which comes with this kit is so helpful! If made the application so much easier. The application really is all in the brush so make sure you keep it for another time when you want to use a cheaper bleaching kit. The hardest part of the application for me was trying to figure out if I had managed to reach the back of my head properly, and when putting the streak through my fringe (like in the picture on the box) as I put a little bit too much colour in it.
I am really excited by my results as the ombre has really lifted the colour in my face, making me look less pale than I did with one dark colour. 1 box definitely has enough mixture for shoulder length hair as I did a horizontal application (bolder than vertical) and still had a bit of mixture left in the applicator bottle. If you are nervous or just want to be extra prepared just watch a whole lot of tutorial videos on YouTube.
I think that the price of $17.99 is really affordable and it is awesome that you can just pick up the kit at your local Farmers or Countdown Supermarket. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to do their hair at home and is looking for a more affordable option than at the hair dressers.
I have kept my brush for future use as a lot of the tutorial videos I watched told me to do as they say “it’s all in the brush”. I am considering trying this out again when my hair has gotten a bit longer, but using another at home blonding kit to see if this claim is true.
Tips: If you are going to go for the streak in the fringe, less is best. Also make sure you have some sort of hair oil or leave in conditioner to put in your hair afterwards, especially if you hair has previously been dyed. If you have shorter hair like me, you may also want someone to check that you have applied the colour evenly at the back of your head.
