L'Oreal Wild Ombres in No 2 [Review]

Ombre hair has been all the rage for the past couple of years, the ombre or dip-dyeing technique adds an instant oomph to the look and many celebrities have been going for the trend in the past two years. L'Oreal Paris launched it's at home Wild Ombres kit to do the dip-dyeing at home, I was sent one too that I'm reviewing today.

L'Oreal Claims:
Get on-trend with a two-tone dip-dye style at home. With an easy and simple to use brush on style-creator tool, this hair colour look is easy to create.
Wild Ombr├ęs is a revelation in the world of hair colour – fashion forward and celebrity inspired two-tone finish on a hair style that you can achieve in minutes.'

My Thoughts:
For reference I have dark brown wavy hair which is dry in texture. I keep dyeing it on and off and like to experiment with different hair colors.
The L'Oreal Wild Ombres kit includes six components and a leaflet which has instructions on how to apply the dye to the hair. The components are

-1 Lightening Powder
-2 Developer Cream
-3 Lightening Cream
-4 Conditioning shampoo
-A pair of disposable gloves
-Special brush to comb the section of hair to be dyed.

I began with clean dry hair, shampooed and conditioned as my hair is dry and it cannot do without some basic conditioning, mixed the color (lightening cream, lightening powder and developing cream) together and shook it well before I broke the tip off to apply to my hair. I sectioned my hair into two parts on each  side of the head and applied it to the bottom ten inches of both the sections. I kept on combing through the entire process to distribute the dye evenly through the hair. Left it on for approximately 40 mins to fully develop before rinsing it off with warm water. I applied the conditioning shampoo afterwards. I was afraid the end result would be an ugly brassy orange but on the contrary the color is a light pale brown which looks especially beautiful when I curl my hair. The smell is kinda intense mostly because of the bleaching agents I reckon. It stayed for a day till I shampooed it with my own shampoo the next day.
Very easy process, the instructions are really helpful and pretty much explained everything. Overall this kit is affordable, handy and very easy to use to achieve the salon effect, and I can't help loving my ombre hair! 

Price and Availability:
Available in all supermarkets nationwide for pkr 1200.
