The Perfect DIY Dip Dye with L'Oreal Intense Ombrés Kit


 
Ombré hair is the trend that keeps TRENDING! And with celebs like Kylie Jenner and Cheryl Cole recently joining the club, it’s showing no signs of fading! I’ve always sported some form of this look, before it was even a “look”. Grown out highlights, lemon juice accelerated sun bleached locks and even the hair killer that was Sun-In (remember that?). But thanks to L’Oreal Wild Ombrés kits, the look got a whole lot easier.
I did my first L'Oreal DIY dip dye nearly two years ago  (see the post here) and was thrilled with the results. It couldn't have been easier! The results were perfect – even my hairdresser thought I’d had it done at another salon. Thanks to a couple of summer holidays, my ends have stayed quite light, but recently I felt like it needed a little lift and when I discovered L'Oreal recently added two more shades to the range... off to Boots I went (scroll down for before and after).
L'Oreal Paris Préférence Ombrés kits are available in 6 shades
No 1 Wild Ombrés for Light Brown to Dark Brown
No 2 Wild Ombrés for Dark Blonde to Medium Brown
No 3 Wild Ombrés for Blonde to Dark Blonde
No 104 Ombrés Intense Light Brown to Dark Brown Intense Effect
Coloured Ombrés Red
Coloured Ombrés Copper
The kits come complete with a nifty little brush that gives you complete control over where you apply the dye. Simply comb on, wait 25-45 minutes, rinse off and voile... DIY dip dye at your service. Last time I used No 2, which was my perfect match. This time, I was intrigued to try the new No 104 Ombrés Intense. It’s basically the same kit, but with more intense results. I must admit the word “intense” scared me a little so I only let mine develop for 25 minutes (last time I left it for 30-35). I probably could have left it longer because the results were still fairly subtle, but I definitely achieved the look I wanted. Not the obvious dip dye, but more of a graduated ombré effect. To do this hold the brush horizontally, applying the cream higher in some areas, lower in others – rather than making a line and colouring everything below it. I also went a little higher at the front because I’m always trimming my long fringe. For more tips and details of how to apply, check out this L’Oreal video. The shade itself it a beautiful caramel hue, with multi tonal effect.



Second time round I’m just as impressed with these kits. They’re easy to use (I mean bomb proof), kind to hair and really long lasting. L'Oreal Paris Préférence Wild Ombrés kits £6.99 Boots and Superdrug. Have you tried them yet?

  1. I used this and wasn't that pleased. It wasn't the kit at all, I think it was more my hair condition and the colours I already have on it! :(

    1. Oh that's a shame. It's really worked for me, but I guess if u have other colours on it will effect it x

  3. I've always seemed to avoid the naff DIY ombré kits that float around shops because they never really do a good enough job in comparison to salons.. This has completely changed my view!! It looks amazing, and with the upcoming summer it'll lighten even more! Yay!

    1. I swear it's so easy to use and now that I've done it twice on me (and a few times on my friends) know the results are pretty consistent x

  5. I ombred my hair with this kit the Christmas before last and loved it, it's mostly gone now though. I got another box at the same time on a 2 for £10 deal I'm tempted to dig it out... xx

  7. Your hair looks so lovely. It looks like it's done in the salon. I do worry about at home kits but you've given me a little more confidence xx

  8. Your hair looks gorgeous. I really want to do this to my hair but don't think it will lift my colour as I used to dye it a lot! Your hair looks fab and so smooth and shiny.

  10. Did you do this yourself? I really want to do this because i haven't been to a barber in ages. I'm so glad i found your blog, you kinda have the same hair colour as i do! I was too afraid to even bother trying it as i thought my hair was too light brown, and whenever i searched for ombre hair i got these results with very dark roots! But this post is inspiring, and my summer holidays start in about two weeks time, so if it doesn't work out properly it's ok because i don't have to go to school and look silly in front of everyone hahah (:

    The way you cut your hair is also very lovely xx
