Ombre Haircare

Ombre Haircare A few of you have suggested for me to create a ombre haircare story about products I use and how I look after it so I decided to finally post about it! Above are all of the products I use to look after my ombre.
Marilyn hair mask from LUSH has been spoken about before on my blog, I purchased this because when you first ombre your hair a lot of people get this 'brassy colour' so I wanted to gradually get it looking lighter and this mask helped do that. It helped condition my hair too which is something you need to do quite often with ombre hair.

Aussie is one of my favourite haircare brands, I like to use this deep treatment occasionally when my ends are looking frizzy and dull but, don't want to put a mask on that takes 10 minutes. This leaves my ends soft and definitely helps get rid of that 'frizzy dull' feel to my ends...has a nice smell too!

Herbal Essences hair masks are something I would recommend. This one helped keep my ends in good condition from breaking and becoming dry. As when you ombre your hair it can become quite dry, I have ombre'd my hair twice and I used this straight after I dyed it just to give me hair a deep treatment. It did the job!

When you bleach your ends of your hair of course you are going to suffer with some frizz and damage but it can be controlled and for me these two products helped that.
Again..Aussie saved the day for my ends! this not only helped maintain the frizz it helped condition my ends. Bleach leaves your hair with a damaged texture this stops that and helps put your condition back in.

Charles Worthington is probably one of the only Higher end products I have purchased and loved. I felt as though this cream did a similar job to Aussie it locked in condition and maintained frizz so the isn't a lot I can say about this that hasn't been already covered. Recommend both or either!

After I bleach my hair and washed it off, I apply the Moroccan Oil when my hair is damp. I noticed so many good things about this product it softens my ends, adds a serious amount of health to it, gives it a lovely shine and helps get rid of the brassy colour. For me this has been a holy grail for ombre cannot recommend this product enough!
This was took last month so my hair hasn't really changed since then, this is basically what it looks like since May. All of these products mentioned + the sun had helped my hair look this colour.

Tips..
1. if you have really thin damaged hair don't use this!
2. after you bleach your hair apply a mask then an oil this will instantly help repair your hair
3. try to avoid heat for a few days just so your hair gets to repair
4. constantly apply a mask or treatments to your hair every other day
5. don't over use products I applied each of these every other time I washed my hair!
6. Macadamia Oil and deep mask packet is what I used after bleaching my hair first time it is cheaper than some products if you want to try their range

  1. I love ombre hair, I already bleach my hair though so it'd be more hassle than anything else haha. One tip I always tell people who bleach their hair (either a full head or partial like obre or hi lights) is I always just leave my hair for a little while after. I know not everyone can, but I use a mask and oil after bleaching then don't wash it or use anything else for at least 2 days, it really helps my hair. :)

  7. I had my hair ombréd professionally and it looked 100000% worse than this. Well done! (I had to dye mine straight back so now I'm just left with the damage from the bleach. No matter what I do it won't leave- my only option is to cut it all off I think :( ) Lovely post/ hair though!! :D xx
