How To Get Rid of Ombre Hair

By Subodh / April 3, 2014

Ombre hair is a hair condition in which the hair color either fades or gets darker towards the end. This means that the entire hair strand does not change color. The color remains natural at the root, but towards the end there is a change. A lot of times people (especially women) get their hair dyed in such a way so that it appears ombre. However, many times it is a medical condition and happens naturally to people. When it is a medical condition, you don’t want to keep the ombre hair as it affects your appearance. This is the reason why those who have ombre hair want to get rid of it. There are many natural ways to get rid of it but that requires a lot of patience. There are artificial ways too, such as hair dying, to temporarily hide the ombre hair.

Get the haircut done

This could be the easiest and yet the most difficult way to get rid of ombre hair. It is easy because you can get the haircut done any time you want to without affecting the hair condition. It is difficult because you need to get the hair cut done regularly and you will need to keep your hair short even when you want to keep them long. But it may not be all that bad. You can look good even with short hair. All you need to do is choose the right style that matches your personality. There is another way to get rid of ombre hair through hair cut. It is getting only those hair cut which are ombre colored. However, if you have too many ombre colored hair then it is not a viable option for you. Additionally, picking and cutting only selected hair could get very cumbersome.

Color your hair

This may not be the most appropriate choice to make, but if you are not left with any other option you will need to resort to hair color.  If you want to keep your hair long and still don’t want ombre hair to be visible, hair color could be the only choice for instant results. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind before coloring your hair. First of all you need to make sure that you are not allergic to hair colors. The colors contain chemicals and some people are allergic to them. If you have never tried hair color before, make sure you test it on a small part of your head before completely coloring all of your hair. If there are no signs of allergy, you can go ahead with coloring all the hair. However, if your scalp shows signs of irritation or allergy, do not color your hair. If you are planning to color only the ombre affected part of your hair then you will need to choose the color which is closest to your natural hair color. It is indeed better to color all of your hair if possible. This way there won’t be different shades.

Take good care of your hair

Whether you are coloring your hair or not, it is very important for you to take good care of them. Good care starts with choosing the right products for hair care. Make sure that you are using the right kind of shampoo and conditioner according to your hair type. You don’t necessarily have to buy expensive products. Good quality regular products applied appropriately also give you good results. You don’t need to use conditioner if you have oily hair. You can also use baby shampoo for your hair. Since baby shampoos are appropriate for a baby, they are also gentle on your hair.

Consult a hair expert

If you have tried everything but you are not able to get rid of ombre hair, you can consult a hair expert. A hair expert may not necessarily be a doctor but it could be someone who knows a great deal about hair care. In fact, you can go to a good Salon and consult the experts there. There are a lot of things that we are not aware of and we try to treat ourselves by trying to look up on the internet. Sometimes the remedies work but sometimes they backfire. A hair care expert will be able to examine your hair type and give you the best advice. If you can afford it, go to the best possible salon. The better the salon better will be the hair care experts there.

Ombre hair is not something which cannot be gotten rid of or fixed. All you need to do is take care of your hair appropriately. If need to, you may get your hair dyed to get the results you want. If you don’t want to dye your hair, you may get it cut.
