A Pop Of Color: Ombre.

Hello everyone!

As some of you know, for quite a while now I've been in constant battle with my hair! Although thankfully I've recently been able to tame it by getting it permanently straightened. But one other major flaws in my hair is what I like to call my 'Reverse Ombre'. What the heck is 'Reverse Ombre' you might ask? Well about two years ago now I made the courageous decision to dye my hair for the first time. My natural hair color is dark blonde/mousy brown, but I wanted a I decided to dye my hair dark brown. 
I quite liked it at first but little did I know what a giant pain in the butt it was going to be. 

Personally, I feel that when girls with naturally brunette hair dye it blonde, their re growth doesn't start to look bad for a good while; but when girls who have naturally blonde hair dye it brunette, their re growth looks HORRIBLE! I feel like it almost looks like you have little grey/white hairs sprouting as the blonde re growth looks so light next to the dark brown, plus it feel like it takes FOREVER to grow back out. 

At the moment my hair doesn't look too bad. My re growth has grown about 4-5 inches but it doesn't look nearly as bad as it once was as it's slowly blending into the brown(dyed) ends of my hair. Although when I'm out and about in the sun, it is quite noticeable. 

So getting to the point...
I went out and bought a DIY Ombre kit which I've herd a lot of good reviews on recently, in the hope that if I'm feeling courageous again, I might dye the ends of my hair blonde. Just so I'm able to create a mousy brown to blonde Ombre instead of the mousy brown to dark brown 'reverse Ombre' I've got going on at the moment. 

Also one more thing I wanted to add. Lately, floating around the internet I've seen the trend of 'Colored Ombre' which I'm sure many of you would have already seen too. It's almost like a dip dye. Basically it's when you add a 'Non Human' or 'Unnatural' colored dye to the lower lengths of your hair. And I'm LOVING it! It's so tempting! Although I'm not sure my hair could withhold that amount of dye, especially after having the ends lightened.

If I do end up dying my hair, I'll be sure to write a review on the box kit etc. 

Has anyone else reading this added a crazy color to the ends of their hair before?
