Hi guys I have naturally brown hair but I've been dyeing it ginger for years. I love my ginger colour but I've been toying with the idea of using Ombre dye to make it go lighter at the bottom. From what I have seen in shops, L'Oreal Ombre seems like the most popular choice.

So I have a few questions - Is it easy enough to use? What colour would I go for as there are 3 shades but none of them say they are for ginger hair.

I'm hoping to get my hair to look like this roughlyImage

There's no need to get special ombre products, that's just a gimmick. You just need to bleach the ends, either using powder bleach and developer or buying a prelightener dye and a toner. Though tbh it's probably a similar price. Go with the one for medium brown hair, ginger is already lighter on the colour scale than dark brown but still needs all the red taken out of it. You may have to use a toner or purple shampoo aferrwards if it's a little brassy.

Alternatively you could use a colour stripper on your hair first to get the red out.

I've used loreal ombre before and recommend it to everyone! I had never bleached/dyed my hair before and i really wanted to join in the ombre trend. I saw the advert on tv for the loreal ombre and thought eh why not? The instructions are SO easy to follow and it get's the iob done! Only thing i recommend is leaving it on for 45 mins rather than the 25 mins written on the leaflet!

What is your natural hair colour? I'll be using it over ginger dyed hair so I'm hoping it will turn out ok!

Did it make your hair go blonde at the end or did it go a little ginger after only using it once?

I left it on for quiet a while so it had gone past the ginger stage. It was a medium blonde

Did it make your hair feel brittle and damaged afterwards? I've dyed my hair many times and its still in good condition but I've never bleached any part of my hair beforem

I'm not going to lie- my hair did feel extremely dry after so i had to use deep conditioning treatments and coconut oil to help it recover

I'll make sure I stock up on plenty of conditioning products then! And I'll be sure to do some strand tests before putting it on all my hair just so I know if I will like the shade it turns out as.
