As we all know, having ombré hair is very damaging, you are applying bleach, the most harmful chemical, directly onto the most delicate and easily damaged part of your hair. Without proper hair care, this style can cause nothing but split ends and brassiness. So here’s a little run through of the products that I use on my hair to keep it healthy and manageable.
So as I said, bleaching the ends of your hair will make them very dry and brittle, so you’ll need not only a good conditioner, but a great shampoo to prevent your hair from drying out any more. I use the Alberto Balsam shampoo and conditioner to ‘revitalise dry hair’, and I also have a Creighton’s blonde extra moisturising shampoo in case my hair is feeling dry and in need of a boost. Other products that I would recommend would be any violet based shampoo, as they balance out the colour of blonde hair to keep it from looking brassy.
The next most important thing for ombré hair is to give it a treat every once in a while. This Oz Botanics Major Moisture deep conditioner is amazing. I would recommend using a deep treatment on your hair once every two weeks because if you use it too often, it’ll just weigh your hair down and leave if feeling greasy, if you don’t use it often enough the blonde ends will simply break off.
Finally, something I will always take very seriously is heat defence. If you’ve already bleached your air, and you continue on to style it with heat and you don’t protect it, you are doing it no favours, as it will just result in it breaking and frizzing. I use Argan Oil leave in spray before I blow dry and style my hair, and then once it’s dry, Vitapointe leave in conditioner to the ends of dry hair, This stuff is a miracle, just apply a tiny drop to the very ends of your hair and it leaves it sleek and shiny.
Those are all of the products I use for my hair! Do you have ombré hair? Are you thinking about having it done? Or would you recommend another product that is great for ombré? Let me know in the comments!
