My new Ombre...
I dyed my roots darker and now my ombre is complete, I got lots of lovely comments from you girls on IG and I'm finally sharing some photos taken in natural light, no flash and taken on my phone.
Yes I did it myself.
I used the 'Smart Blonde' hair lightening kit to lighten the ends that I got from Superdrug for about £5, it says it lightens without bleach and it did, the scent however was really strong so there was still some serious chemicals in there probably renamed to disguise the bleach. I backcombed my hair from my ear downwards so that when I applied the colour it wouldn't have a harsh line and that it would blend in which worked out really well.
Yes I am brave and had been considering for sometime and just went with it and it turned out great! Well, I think so anyway! :) I'm loving the lighter hair for the Summer!
I dyed the roots darker with Boots 'Botanicals' bitter chocolate hair dye which was a nice cool toned dark brown.
I also used 'Marilyn' by Lush on the tips of my hair to take away some of the warm tones, it only made a slight difference so I think I need to do it again. But luckily, the colour is not too brassy so after a few washes it will look even better.
I get loads of comments of people asking if my hair is damaged, no it's not, obviously the ends are dry due to the colour change but it's nothing a little serum or oil can't fix. Also, I trim my hair regularly myself every time I feel like the layers are growing out.
Here's my outfit from yesterday! Yes, I am now finally back to my pre pregnancy weight *excuse me while I do a little dance* I'm actually lower and aim to lose a couple more kilos to get back to pre wedding weight! I have lost a total of 7.3kg and will be doing a detailed clean eating / fitspo post soon.

This time I got the ombre right, I actually prefer it to anything I have had done before.
What do you think about Ombre? Are you still loving it or are you past it?
