    I think it looks good, but I also always never liked the results of my hair after attempting to dye it.. You can always try to use a purple toner, it will tone down the orange/yellow undertones, it won’t make the hair lighter, but at least you will cut the color you don’t like!

    Please let us know if you dye it again!! =D

    I think you’ve actually done a great job, and don’t think it is orange at all. You’ve manged to create a more ‘natural’ look which is beautiful.

    so you took the plunge? It’s so gorgeous now with the L’oreal wild Ombres and don’t mess up your hair too much with the white platinum as it is still soft right now, but it might get strawlike when you go even further

    • Lorna
      November 26, 2012

      I just purchased the Joico violet shampoo which is supposed to take down copper/yellow tones and make them whiter, so I am hoping the shampoo will do the job over the next few weeks. I don’t really want to dye it again and risk ruining it, so I am sticking with that for now! I appreciate everyone’s advice so much!

    I think it looks fab – not orange at all! I’ve wanted to ombre my hair for AGES but as it is ginger and curly I am nervous that it will go horribly wrong!

    Why did u buy number 3, for blonde hair when ur hair is brown? Does it make it lighter? Cuz, im thinkin of doing it but im not sure for wich number i should take.. My hair is brown, more like darkbrown. Wich do you think?
    xx Mire

      January 14, 2013

      Hi Mire, my hair is blonde, it’s not brown. It’s just dark blonde. I’m sure you can see in my many other photos it’s blonde. It probably just looks brown from the photos since the tips are really light now. You should always pick the shade for what colour your hair is, don’t pick another one. The blonde one is less strong, because blonde hair doesn’t need tinting as much. The one for darker hair will be stronger as it needs to lift more colour. That’s how it works. Hope that helps! Everyone’s I have seen with darker hair, it comes out the orange ish colour, like on the box. It doesn’t go bright blonde.

    Tbh silver shampoo or a toner will props help it s lot I’d try them before another dye as you will props have more yellow pigments it may still go a little yellow. Hope my comment helps x

      January 17, 2013

      Oh yeah I have been using a Joiko purple tint shampoo which helps loads, I’m happy with how it is now. I didn’t dye it again.

    hey just wondering how long you left the dye on for both times you did it? I’ve done my ombre and it hardly came out so thinking of doing it again, thanks! x

    • Lorna
      February 1, 2013

      Hi! You have to put loads of the dye on your hair so your hair looks white and the first time it didn’t come out really well as I left it about 25 minutes, the second time I left it about 45 minutes. I definitely recommend leaving it a longer length of time!

    Hi, I used the same dye and have the same colour hair as you almost and mine is very orangey , even more so than yours, I don’t want to put another dye on it as it had already dried my hair out, but I need to do something desperately!!

    • Lorna
      October 15, 2013

      Hi Kimberly! Do you have brown hair? Or a really dark blonde hair? It seems the darker the natural hair colour the more orange it seems to go when dyed. How orange is it? You can use something with a more purple base to it, just to tone down the yellow orange shade. I used the Joico purple shampoo, it’s a toning shampoo which adds purple pigments to the hair to tone the glow down, but it doesn’t actually change the colour of it. Someone recommended to me that I put an ash blonde on my hair as it has no yellow undertones at all, but like you, I didn’t want to dye it again. Maybe it might be best to visit the salon though if the purple shampoo doesn’t work?

    I recently went Ombre too!

    As a kid, I spent summers in the pool with my white-blonde hair. The chlorine would turn it green and my Mom always used the purple shampoo on me too! We had horses though so unol I was an adult, I had no idea they made the same kind of shampoo for people LOL. I always had the kind for horses (which I thought worked better).

    Something else I thought you might want to try on the bits that get orange-y…every few weeks, I mix a paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and put it on my tips for 10 minutes before I shower. Keeps things on the whiter side! :-)

    • Lorna
      October 23, 2013

      Lol, I didn’t even know you can get purple shampoo for horses. What is it used for on them as I can’t imagine them being orangey? Is the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda a bit like a bleach solution so you would be bleaching your hair all the time? I’m actually thinking about getting my hair cut at the moment, so I’m not sure how much longer I will have my ombre for :)

    Even though you said you didn’t like it and it didn’t really work for you. I think it really suits you and looks pretty perfect

      November 15, 2013

      Oh I do like it :) I still have ombre hair now, I just didn’t like the yellow tone, but the purple shampoo toned that down :)
