Here is is...my new hair! What do you think?
I'm still not sure about it, as I mentioned just after I'd had it done, I don't think the ombre is as defined as I would have liked it to be. To me it looks a bit like a slightly more blended version of my regular hair with a few too many weeks of root!! Whilst I was after a very subtle ombre, and not the kind that looks like your hair is half and half, I do think it could have done with going a little further down my head. I suppose the beauty of this style is that the colour can grow in rather than growing out though so it'll look better with a bit of time I think.
For some reason on photos it doesn't look quite as blended as it does in person but here's a few more awkward shots taken at dinner this evening to give you an idea of what my 'sort-of-ombre' hair looks like!

When I was at the salon I stocked up on my usual hair products (Kerastase Nutritive shampoo and conditioner and their deep conditioning treatment, Masquintense). I also made a new purchase, Kerastase Elixir Ultime. It's a 'beautifying oil' which is supposed to nourish, strengthen and protect hair along with smoothing it and adding shine. Lots of work for this little gold bottle!
Because of colouring and styling I really struggle to keep my hair in even half decent condition so I'm all for anything that can help. I believe investing in high quality hair care products is really important, after all, you wear your hair every day! I'm hoping the Elixir is going to do what it says on the tin. So far I can report it smells amazing and seems to add some shine but I'll write a post about whether it does the rest after I've used it for a little while.
What do you use to keep your hair in good condition, do you have any great recommendations?
