My new Ombre...

I dyed my roots darker and now my ombre is complete, I got lots of lovely comments from you girls on IG and I'm finally sharing some photos taken in natural light, no flash and taken on my phone.

Yes I did it myself.


I used the 'Smart Blonde' hair lightening kit to lighten the ends that I got from Superdrug for about £5, it says it lightens without bleach and it did, the scent however was really strong so there was still some serious chemicals in there probably renamed to disguise the bleach. I backcombed my hair from my ear downwards so that when I applied the colour it wouldn't have a harsh line and that it would blend in which worked out really well.

Yes I am brave and had been considering for sometime and just went with it and it turned out great! Well, I think so anyway! :) I'm loving the lighter hair for the Summer!














I dyed the roots darker with Boots 'Botanicals' bitter chocolate hair dye which was a nice cool toned dark brown.

I also used 'Marilyn' by Lush on the tips of my hair to take away some of the warm tones, it only made a slight difference so I think I need to do it again. But luckily, the colour is not too brassy so after a few washes it will look even better. 

I get loads of comments of people asking if my hair is damaged, no it's not, obviously the ends are dry due to the colour change but it's nothing a little serum or oil can't fix. Also, I trim my hair regularly myself every time I feel like the layers are growing out. 


Here's my outfit from yesterday! Yes, I am now finally back to my pre pregnancy weight *excuse me while I do a little dance* I'm actually lower and aim to lose a couple more kilos to get back to pre wedding weight! I have lost a total of 7.3kg and will be doing a detailed clean eating / fitspo post soon.

This time I got the ombre right, I actually prefer it to anything I have had done before. 

What do you think about Ombre? Are you still loving it or are you past it?

@Sammy Thank you xxx

You look gorgeous! It really suits you and looks professional. I like ombre still, I did it around December and it came out pretty faint but I'll wait til I've had my baba next month before I try again! x

Looks lovely, Muhsine!

I genuinely thought it looked like you got it done in the salon :)

I did a DIY ombre but I had to apply bleach, TWICE as I needed it as blonde as possible 'cause I was going to slap on some turquoise dye. My hair was extremely britle after but what helped an awful lot was pure coconut oil, the one that comes in a blue tub from Asian/Desi stores?

If you ever do find that your hair is looking a tad warmer or brassy, I would definitely recommend you to try Fudge's Paintbox in Whiter Shade of Pale, by far the best toner out there for hair!

It looks lovely! I am debating whether to try this at home myself. I really don't want to pay salon prices but I am just not sure I am brave enough, ha xx

Lilit said...

The ombre looks fantastic, you have done a great job! I'm still loving the ombre trend and I hope it doesn't go out of fashion as I want to do ombre eventually (when my hair grows a bit as at the moment if i ombre my bob hair it might look like i have regrowth instead of look trendy!). And yay for losing the baby weight, it's not easy, but you look great!

I am over ombré. I think your hair looks a hit damaged, and I much prefer it dark. Congrats on your weight loss, you look great.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty
worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
