L'oreal Preference Wild Ombres #1 kit Review

Let's talk about hair today, shall we? :P

I fell in love with Ombre hair some time ago and I always wanted to try it on my hair too. Scared of dead ends and refusing to dye my hair again - it didn't happened. :P But one day I just knew I had to try it when these kits were available everywhere around me. So I gave it a try. Bought L'oreal Wild Ombres set at DM for around 7€. I choose shade #1 for the dark brown hair, but there're 2 shades more for light hair. My ends were darker before because I used to color my hair in black and chocolate brown. I didn't want to go too light because I think I look better with darker colors and I was scared to get that ugly brassy blond on my ends. :) 


The first thing I liked about this kit is that's so easy to use. Love the brush that comes with this set, because it just makes everything easier. I still have it in case I wanted to go ombre again and then I won't have to buy this kit again, just the bleach. :) I left the bleach working for around half an hour on my hair, then I rinsed it off. I was too scared to leave it for 15 more minutes but for a better effect I should. Or I should repeat the process again, because there's so much color left but my friend wanted ombre too so I dyed her hair. So we both have ombre hair. :P

Right after I dyed my hair.

It's subtle just the way I like it and if I'm honest, it shows better on pictures than in real life. :$ The thing I don't like is that it killed my ends. My hair was long and healthy, of course you could find split ends but they were never so dry and damaged. My hair routine was really simple (I used to use only shampoo) but I had to change it. It was impossible to deal with all the knots and mess (even with my tangle teezer) so conditioner solved the brushing a bit. And last week I decided to trim them away again and my hair is shorter for almost 10 cm and this is the second time I trimmed my hair, last time I think I cut off around 5 cm. 


So all in all, I love this kit - easy to use, brush is great and it makes a lovely ombre effect but I'm hating the fact it killed my ends. Or maybe my hair was already damaged and bleach just made them even worse. I might repurchase it again, since I love ombre effect and would love to have a slightly lighter hair but we'll see,  I don't know! :D If you want to try ombre, the easiest and one of the cheapest ways is probably with this set (it's worth to buy it for the first time to get a brush). :) But without any damaged hair, hair dresser is the best solution. :) Maybe it'll work for you.

Here's the before:
 

Did you try it out? Let me know if you would like to know anything about my hair, so I can blog more about it. :i

Xoxo,

  1. I was afraid for my ends but I didn't notice any difference. I was using dry hair oil for my ends before (on wet hair and as a weekly treatment), I kept using it and I didn't see more split ends or anything. I guess it depends on the hair. I love how it turned out btw, I really like the natural result!

  2. Lepo izgleda na slikah :) Jaz sem si s tem L'Oreal kit dvakrat ombre delala, pa moraš res pustiti kar dolgo gor, če hočeš kakšen efekt - prvič tudi meni ni kaj dosti prijelo. Imaš pa prav da ti uniči konice, moje so čisto suhe in boge, zato moram dajat olje za lase gor, pa malo pomaga. Saj verjetno bi bilo isto z vsako drugo barvo, samo mi je ombre tako všeč da se tudi z malo bolj bogimi konicami lahko sprijaznim :)

  3. Have you tried oiling your hair? For me it's a must. Since I've started to use oil in hair conditioning, my nails have benefited as well:)

    1. Thanks for the link, will check them out later. I do use oils, especially virgin coconut oil, because it works best for me. But unfortunately I'm too lazy for that too. :/ I should take care of my hair more often though.

    1. I have no idea how much does bleach cost here but 7€ isn't a really high price for a bleach and great brush you can use again and again. :)

  7. You really have a better effect than I have. When I used this, I had some areas of my hair bleach almost totally to blond while the other areas I treated were just brown. And yeah, it killed my ends too!

  8. Try using Moroccan oil on your ends - it will help! Looks great on you! xx

    Drugače pa vem kako ti je - ene 5 let sem se barvala na blond + vsak dan likala = lasi skurjeni do konic. Pol sm dala pa gor rjavo barvo in 2 leti čakala, da mi je tisto uničeno preraslo in končno sem mela lase 100% mojo barvo in tut precej zdravi so bli. Ampak itak mi je blo dolgočasno in sem ta teden šla na rdečo in kar se tiče videza mi ni žal samo jao moje konice! :~
