L'oreal Preference Wild Ombre Dip Dye Review


I have wanted Ombre or dip dye hair, whatever you prefer to call it, i prefer Ombre so going for that, for such a long time but because i had really short hair i knew it would never work for me. I have waited for well over a year and my hair has finally grown to a pretty decent so i couldn't wait to Ombre it. Just at the right time i spotted this L'oreal Preference Wild Ombre Brush On Dip Dye kit and thought it would be perfect for me as i am totally new to the tricks of Ombre.

So, there is 3 different versions to choose from, Ombre No 1 for Light Brown to Dark Brown Hair, Ombre No 2 for Dark Blonde to Medium Brown Hair and Ombre No 3 for Blonde to Dark Blonde hair. Seeing as my natural hair is rather dark chocolate brown i went with Ombre No 1. 

This is such a quick and easy kit to use, probably one of the easiest hair dyes i have ever used, you get everything you need in the box including the very handy brush, just give yourself an hour and you will have fabulous Ombre hair!

All you do is part your hair into two sections from the back and bring all your hair forward, mix up the dye and simply squeeze the dye onto the brush then literally just brush the product onto your hair starting from your chin or ear, which ever level you choose is totally up to you and all depends on how much of an ombre effect you want, i started at my chin as i didn't want too much of an ombre but enough if you get what i mean. You then just apply more dye into your hands with gloves on of course and apply to the very ends of your hair just to give a lighter contrast. Then simply wait either 25-45 minutes depending on how light you want it and watch the magic happen. I only left mine on for 25 minutes as it was my first time trying it i thought this was the safest option. I am really happy with the colour it has given me so 25 minutes was definitely perfect for me. Once your time is up you just rinse your hair with warm water then wash your hair with the shampoo provided, dry and style and voila.

Gorgeous simple Ombre Hair!!

I love mine so very much and am incredibly happy with the results, i may even go a little lighter in a couple weeks, what do you think?

I really love my natural hair colour so this is a great way of changing up your style but still keep the same all over colour.

For £6.99 this is such a bargain way of creating your own Ombre hair, i know some salons can charge a ridiculous amount to get this done professionally but really all you need is this quick and simple kit!
I am also pretty shocked that my ends are not frazzled and still in pretty good condition.

Do you have Ombre Hair? Do you like Ombre hair?

  2. I used this kit a little while back, loved the result. It's so subtle which I think looks much nicer than a harsher finish.
    Your hair looks gorgeous, so healthy and shiny!

  7. I recently had a moment of madness and took to my ends with bleach and peroxide and now have a very subtle amount of ombre. I've been tempted by these kits a thousand times whilst walking past them in Boots but it's worked fab on your hair, I might just have to make a cheeky purchase now. x

  11. This looks so good! I am incredibly tempted by this, but worried I'll mess it up at the same time. My next hair colour choice is to go ombre! x
