L'Oreal Feria Extreme Blonde Ombre - £5.99
I've been box dying my hair for years now, and when I was 18 I decided I was sick of people assuming I was stupid because I had blonde hair and decided to go brunette. Although I've enjoyed being darker for a fair few years now, product build up is stopping me from doing much with it, and purse strings are stopping me from going to see a professional.
I've been a fan of the ombre trend since it first started so was thrilled when L'Oreal released their Wilde Ombre kits just over a year ago. The first time around, I had a dip dye using the Wild Ombre kit for a really long time. After a while, I got fed up with how tatty my ends looked, so I went for the cop and an all over colour. That kept me happy for a total of about... 3 months!
I headed back to Boots to see what I could do to change my style abit. That's when I saw the L'Oreal Feria Extreme Blond Ombre.
Let me tell you about about my hair...
It's quite dark now after a lot of colour build up, and I have alot of red undertones in it due to the types of dyes I've used in the past, so I knew I wasn't going to get a crisp blonde from the box, but I did expect a difference in the colour from the Wild Ombre kit from this one, because it claimed to be 'Extreme'. My result from the Wild Ombre kit was a copper / ginger colour, which I really liked, so was hoping for a lighter blond hue this time around.
I was abit gutted, because the result was exactly the same as when I used the Wild Ombre kit. Bit of a bummer. Don't get me wrong, its not a complete hair disaster because I do like the copper / ginger colour it has given me, I just expected more.
The only difference I did see between the two products is that with the extreme kit, the blend isn't as gradual - I've got quite a distinctive line where one colour starts and the other stops - with the Wild Ombre kit everything was really nicely blended.
Would I use it again - Yes - It is a quid cheaper than the Wild Ombre kit, and gives a nice effect, it just wasn't the effect I really wanted.
I think ill be going to my hair dressers soon to start the lightening process. I really want my blonde hair back!
