DIY Ombre

  • A few of my friends have tried dying their hair ombre and all had the same result: half dark hair, half light hair, no fade, just looked like their hair was cut in half with two different colors. One of my friends even went to a hairdresser and got the same result, and had to dye over it the next day. The problem most people have is that they do it all at once. They slap the dye on, let it sit, wash it out and done. I'll show you how I get my result.

  • Leave all your hair down, preferably unwashed (dye works better on unwashed hair), figure out how high you want your ombre to go up. I personally like right below the red line shown above (about right under your ears).

  • Once you decide how far up you want your ombre to go, apply your dye. Make sure your hair is completely saturated in this area but also try to work as quickly as possible because the dye starts working quickly. Once you have completely saturated your hair in the section you want, let it sit until you start to notice it change color. You do not want it to change too drastically so once you notice the entire saturated section has started to change it's time to rinse it out. Use cool water to rinse the dye completely out, do not use shampoo yet. Dry your hair COMPLETELY before the next step.

  • Next you are going to apply another layer of dye (the same color) to the tips of your hair so you need to decide how far up your next layer will go. I like to apply mine to the area below the green line as shown above.

  • Once you decided on how far up on your hair you will want to put the next layer, go ahead and apply your dye. Again, this will be the same color that you did in the first layer. This time, once completely saturated, you will leave the dye on longer until you notice more of a dramatic change in color. Once the dye has reached a more dramatic color it is time to rinse again. Fully rinse hair with cool water and this time you may use shampoo and conditioner. When conditioning, I suggest keeping it in your hair for a few minutes before rinsing to make it nice and soft.

  • This technique can be used on any color you are looking to use to ombre your hair such as reversed ombre, where it is light to dark instead of dark to light. This picture shows my light to dark results using this technique :)

  • Also consider using Biosilk silk therapy oil on wet hair. It keeps it nice and soft and helps repair your hair after dying it. It also smells really good too :)
