DIY Ombre Hair.

Hey dolls,

So I finally decided to Ombre my hair!

I will talk about how I prepared my hair for the bleaching and dying process & all of the products used.

I want to thank my sister, Jeanette for helping me <3 

It took about 6 hrs for the finished look.

So let's beginning! 


Before Bleaching:
I didn't wash my hair for 4 days.
The only products I put in my hair prior were:

  • Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioning
  • Aussie Hair Insurance Leave in Conditioner
Bleach/Pre lightener:
  • L'oreal Super Blonde Creme Lightening Kit in #200 Bleach Blonde for Medium Brown to Darkest Brown Hair
Hair Dye:
  • Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colot in #05 Ultra Light Ash Blonde

I was inspired by this photo from
The girl has my hair length and I thought it looked really good on her.
So I took a chance!

The Lightening Process
 ***When you have your gloves on the key is to put the bleach in your hand
You want to run the bleach through your hair in strokes.
This will make the gradual change in hair color more natural
Do this for each layer***

1st Layer:
From chin down to tips of hair wrapped in foil- 30 Mins
Rinse then blow dry

2nd Layer:
Mid way of that section to tips of hair wrapped in foil- 30 mins
Rinse then blow dry

3rd Layer:
Only tips of hair wrapped in foil- 30 Mins
Rinse then apply conditioner that came in the box

* Through out the process you want to keep checking the color 

ORANGE! I had a feeling this was going to happen since my hair was dyed black in April.
Lucky I had bought the hair dye in Ash to counter act the brassiness of red/orange hair.

After Hair Dye
 ***Place more hair dye on the tips using the same technique as with the bleach.
Then bring up the hair dye to the top layer.
Try to evenly distribute the hair dye through out the hair 
Your basically bring the dye up from the tips to the 1st layer****

I left the hair dye in for about an 45 mins and I wrapped it up in foil paper.

Rise and apply conditioner from box.

This picture was taken the day after all of the beaching and dying.

My hair still feels healthy but I will be doing a lot of treatment to it.

So far I love it and I'm glad I had the ball to do it :X

  15. awesome review dear, i would try one day! :D i love your blog <3

    follow me if you love to, and i’ll follow you back :)

  16. Brave move, but it paid off. I'm a non hair dyer, and I don't I ever will be, so hair dying in general is much too risky for me. I think it's pretty awesome that you tried this at home and it came out so well.

  17. @Mitha Komala thanks doll def give it a go!

    @Yara Simon thanks so much :)
