I absolutely LOVE the ombre hair trend but since I had to chop my locks I’ve felt completely left out.. until I discovered colour! When I say discovered colour I had of course dabbled with ‘party shades’ in the past but I’ve never tried the dip dye and the new temporary colours from the Directions range (available at Xtra’s) really appealed. I used pastel pink to achieve this effect and I thought I’d share a little of my trial and error for those interested in having a go themselves. It directs to use on washed, towel dried hair but when I did that I got little to no colour, next time I applied it to washed and totally dried hair and it was a lot brighter but still not fantastic. It was more pink on one side than the other and I don’t believe that was down to application and as soon as I washed my hair it was gone completely. Great for someone that’s wanting a seriously low committment flash of colour for one night but not so great if you consider how long it took me to wash, dry, sit with it on my hair and eventually rinse. I’m a bit hooked now however, I’ve heard about a new temporary dye launching this month and am very excited to potentially be reviewing that for you soon so this will not be the last you hear about dip dying from me!
