New Hairss: Re-Ombre

Soooo, I was tired of my hair yet again and I refuuuse to cut the length or color it completely-- my solution? Renew my ombre of course! My first ombre experience and tutorial can be found here. Garnier Nutrisse worked so well for my hair the first time so I trusted the brand enough to try it again. This time instead of a brown color I went blonde. Yikes! Scaryyy thought, huh?! Luckily for me it turned out amazingly. All of these photos are taken with my iPhone 4s and it has not been filtered AT ALL. I wanted to show the true color. Thee lovely results. :)


My first ombre below.



I purchased Garnier Nutrisse in 111 Extra-Light Ash Blonde. About $7 at Walmart.


At first I was a bit skeptical but I said 'Ehh, why not. I need a change!' I did my research and there was a risk of my hair turning orange or brassy, but I was lucky it didn't. Since this permanent hair dye is not as harsh as bleach I knew the color would not turn out as platinum blonde as the cover shows but I did run the risk of it turning a bit orange and brassy. I took the risk anyhow. Haha. Depending on your hair color, a box of dye will only lift up to 3 shades lighter AT MOST. It doesn't mean that it will, some people with naturally dark hair don't even see a difference.

Since my hair was ombre'd to a brown before, I wanted to go a couple shades lighter to have a more noticeable ombre. Please note, my hair is not the typical jet black thick Asian hair-- it's actually thin and has shades of red and brown in it already before I ombre'd my hair. I think those are huge aspects as to how my hair can take in lighter color without having to bleach my hair first.

If you want the process on how to ombre your hair the way I did please visit my previous ombre tutorial here. I used the same process this time as well, the only difference was the color.

Like I mentioned before, I did this on my own at my own risk so please if you attempt to do this yourself know that it may not turn out the way you expect it to be. I've been doing my own hair for about 8 years now so I'm comfortable enough to do my hair at my own risk. If you are not comfortable doing your own hair go to a professional salon! Please keep that in mind. :)

The comparison photo of my before ombre (my first ombre) and after ombre. Quite the difference. My first ombre was more reddish brown and my renewed ombre is more golden light brown.



So, these are my wonderful results! The lighting is different in some of these photos which makes my ombre look different because of the angle I took the photos but they are NOT filtered or edited. It's the raw stuff here, I promise. :)











I never had the urge to dye my hair until the ombre trend became popular and now I'm obsessed. I loooove how I can retain my natural hair color and dye only the bottom half. Super fun and I feel like a brand new girl without having to cut my hairss! Whoooop! :)
