I’ve always wanted to try the ombre hair look. Too stingy to spend money to have it done professionally, I’ve had several failed attempts with DIY hair colors from various brands. I have dark hair and I probably need to bleach my hair for the color to show up. But I don’t want to bleach my hair – blame it on horrible stories I read that hair could ‘melt’ through the process.
Will the Wild Ombres Collection created specifically for the purpose of creating ombre hair at home work for me?
I’ve seen this marketed under the Feria range overseas. But it’s under Perference range in Australia.
This normally RRP at A$19.95. As a smart consumer (a better term for tight-ass) I will never buy it full price as stores like Priceline and Chemist Warehouse will sell them at discounted price regularly. I bought it from Chemist Warehouse when it was discounted to A$10.
It contains mostly the some content in home coloring kits. It also contains extra products like “lightening powder”, which I thought could be bleach but it doesn’t smell like one. It’s to be added to the developer with the color.
If I remember correctly, Preference hair color kit include essential oil which is added to the developer to take away the ammonia smell. This kit doesn’t include one and you have to put up with awful smell while applying.
The brush is another additional accessory included with the kit. The hair color is added directly on the brush and then brush the color onto the hair. The tip is to start brushing between hair and chin no matter how long your hair is.
No 2 is recommended for dark blonde to medium brown. I do not expect such blonde to show up on my dark hair (some home coloring common sense), but I expect something lighter than my dark hair, maybe medium brown…
It was recommended to leave the color on hair for 30 to 45 minutes. I left it on my hair for maximum recommended time.
Do you see the ombre effect? This photo was shot outside directly under sunlight.
I’ve read reviews with photos where there are difference on dark Asian hairs. Just not mine. :/
Like: Good quality glove.
Dislike: Strong amonia smell. Does not work on my hair.
