So I put it on, I was quite nervous as to what it was actually going to do... I used the comb to brush it in at the ends, but I found brushing it actually tangled my long thick hair, so I ended up just using the gloves and kind of stroked the dye upwards to blend it into my dark hair. I use It looks really light on here because the actual dye is white, but It didn't look as if it was doing much after 25 minutes. I left it on for the maximum time (45 minutes) because I wanted it as light as possible. I was really disappointed when I washed it out, it looked no different! Until I dried it that was..
So this is how it came out, I was surprised to see it had lightened quite a bit! (As the second photo is instagrammed it looks more blonde, but it was very ginger in real life!) I was a bit disappointed that it hadn't gone more blonde really, but more of a light brown/copper/red/ginger type colour. Although I think this is because I have been dying my hair dark brown/reddish brown for a few years now, and it's revealed the reddy tones in the lengths of my hair. I was unsure and wanted to see it in daylight. These are a few photos from the day after:
I was actually really happy with the colour! I wasn't expecting it to go so red, but that's toned down in the last few days after I've been washing it, so it's more of a light brown. I may repeat it again in a week or so to see if I can get it lighter, or I might even try bleach to get it blonde, but for now it's a really lovely subtle ombre effect. I'm glad I did it :) It hasn't really left my hair any drier or in a worse condition then it was, although I do condition my hair regularly.
Heres a bit of a better photo that shows it off a bit better. (I did a few modeling/outfit test shots for my friend Becky's photo shoot, I look a bit silly haha!) It definetly has lightened it a good few shades, in daylight and you can really see the ombre effect!
Have you tried or wanted to try a dip dye style?
