ombre-ish hair

I have always wanted crazily coloured hair. Ever since I was little I have longed after pink/purple/green/blue anycolourbutmyown locks! So, on Sunday I decided to have a little play, having naturally dark hair, I always find it hard to dye my hair any colour other thank brown or red. So when I decided on a purple dipdye, I knew it would be a hard task. I started off by ombreing (is that even a word?) my hair first using a L'Oreal Wild Ombres kit. I would definitley recommend this, as the kit is so easy to use! I then used Swartzkopf ultra bright dye 'purple punk' and added it to the tips on the sections that I had previously ombre'd. Unfortunately this really didn't work for me, I think I ended up redying too soon after I had ombre'd it so the purple just didn't settle into my hair at all. I was really impatient, I did end up putting the purple on almost instantly..naughty Em (don't do this!) Instead I was left with this result...


I do really like this don't get me wrong, its just my dream of having purple hair is still just a dream *sad face* I think this effect is quite unusual, its like an ombre with a pinky red twist! The funny thing is, whenever I wash my hair I end up with bright violet dye running in the water, so there must actually be purple in there..somewhere?!

Do you have any tips for a novice like me, for dying dark hair a bit more of a crazy colour?

  1. I tottally just did this kit at home, but my hair turned out to look like a disaster. Way too orange for my liking. Yours looks cute! Too bad the purple didnt catch on.

  2. Even though it didn't turn out the way you wanted, I still think it looks awesome! It's so hard to dye your hair the way you want to though.

  3. I am the same as you! When I was younger I wanted blue hair! However my parents never let me dye my hair! Last year I got my hair ombre and loved it! However, got bored and dyed it back to brown which I regret! I wish I had dyed the ends a cool colour just for a bit, think it would have been really cool :)
