I thought it would be more complicated than it was but it was actually super easy. Just like standard at home dyes, you mix all the little bits together, and it comes with step by step instructions so no way of going wrong. The only main difference is in application as obviously to get the ombre effect you only do the ends of your hair or as far up as you want the effect to start. The kit comes with a little brush so you can comb the dye through so that it's even and you can easily see how far up you have gone on each side. The instructions suggest leaving the dye on for 25-45 minutes, which is quite long for an at home dye, but I guess that's because you are trying to lighten the hair.
I have to say, I was actually really disappointed with the results of this product. I have been trying to find a good at home dip-dye for ages and thought this one sounded really promising. I got shade no.2 which is dark blonde to medium brown. My hair at the moment I would say is medium brown, there was also a shade for dark brown to medium so could have picked either one but I chose no.2 as I wanted a quite noticeable result. I left the product on for 45 minutes, so the longest recommended time and can honestly say I can see hardly any difference at all. Maybe my hair just doesn't take dye that well, but after 45 minutes you would think I would see some difference, especially as this product is designed specifically for lightening hair. I guess I will just have to go to the salon next time.
