Review: L'oreal Paris Preference Wild Ombres No.3

(Sorry for the crappy photos!)
I have had lots of people asking me on here and on tumblr about the results from the new L'oreal Paris Preference Wild Ombres hair dye that I recently bought to dip-dye my hair with so here is a little update and how I found it.!

How I did it
At 7pm on Thursday evening I finally decided to give it a go. Now, as my hair originally was brown all over the head with blonde underneath, I stood in my bathroom for 45 minutes trying to separate my brown hair from my blonde. In the end I realised how ridiculous I was being, untied the hair ties, mixed together the powders and the mixtures together, separated all of my hair in two sections down the middle and I was ready to start.

 It comes with a brush in which they want you to pour some dye on the brush then brush through the ends of the hair to ensure the hair is completely covered. I started doing this for half an hour on one side of my hair (whilst trying to avoid the already blonde bits) before finding it a little tiresome so I ended up pouring the dye into my hands and slapping it on my hair, then brushing it through. First I put the dye all over my hair up to my chin (where they suggest you ombre up to) before putting a lot more on the ends so I get a gradual effect and so the hair is blonder at the ends. 

I then repeated for the other side of my hair (before realising once all the dye was finished that I had missed a huge chunk) and left it for 45 minutes. The instructions suggest you leave it from 25-45 minutes or until the hair underneath the dye has gone blonde. The results? I love it.

I love my hair so much I'm annoyed they haven't bought this out sooner. It's so easy to use, the instructions are so straight forward and I would literally recommend this to anyone. I didn't do it very neat - actually it looks quite messy but who wants a neat dip-dye? 

The best part about this? It cost me £5 when it was on offer. £5! Think about how much that would have cost in a hair salon. When I come home from my holiday I may do it again to get it even lighter but for now, I like my blonde ombre hair!

(I really apologise for my photos. I didn't do it any justice at all and for that I apologise.)

  1. This looks really good on you! I've been wanting to do this to my hair for a while but never had the cash to do it professionally. I popped into my local boots the other day but found they didn't stock the loreal ombre kits so I'm gonna take your advice and go to asda!
