L'Oreal Wild Ombre Review
Although now all I keep hearing is that Ombre is out, but I was still super excited when I first heard about the new Loreal Wild Ombre dye kit. I looked up many many blog reviews before purchasing and was glad to see that everyone loved it! I knew I had to try it. In theory I want the dramatic bold look as shown below, but in reality I knew I had to stick to a more subtle look. I really was looking for a more highlighted look with lighter ends in the front. This is truly an easy to use customizable versatile product. I actually added dye, shampooed and dried three times, each time tinkering with my results until I was completely satisfied.

My after results on both straight and curly hair:
*This before picture was taken very soon after I had last dyed my hair so in the last couple weeks, my color had lightened up some and the highlights I had dyed over came peeking through more. So it wasn't as dramatic of a change as it may look. My hair was more of a medium brown I would say, but this was the most recent picture I had to compare.
If you have curly hair like me, you're going to want to straighten. I let my hair dry curly and was like, this looks FANTASTIC.....then I straightened it and had an "eeeekkkk!" moment when I saw this portion of my hair. Its always good to take pictures to see what you may not otherwise notice. It didn't take much to fix, just a deep breath and some more dye. I took the area where you see the dramatic line in my hair which I don't like! I then too three separate alternating sections from this bigger section. I applied more dye to the brush and brought some color up closer to the roots so that it blended much better. I let it sit for around 5-7 minutes and then I rinsed it out again. I only rinsed out the part where I re-added dye, so I didn't have to start all over. It came out much better. Trial and error is completely fine as long as you take the time to get it right.
I'm very pleased with my final results. I think if you first have a plan of the look you want to achieve and where you are going to apply the dye, this will be easy for you too and you will like your results. I should say that you can leave this color on for up to 45 minutes. I left it on for 25 minutes and then approximately an average of 5 more minutes for touch-ups. Depending on the color your hair is now, whether it is already color treated, the length you leave this on, and where/how you decide to apply it, you will get different results. All the reviews I saw were positive. If you make any errors, I found it to be a pretty easy fix.
What do you think of the look I got?
