How to Maintain Bright Ombre Hair

The hardest part about using oVertone? Picking a color. Can’t choose? Pick two. Wait, make that three. Want more? No problem. With a little sectioning and a mirror, you can easily use as many oVertone shades as you like. Our conditioners were designed to be thick enough so that they won’t run all over and end up where they shouldn’t.

You can both achieve and maintain ombre hair with oVertone – the process is much the same, except that if you’re coloring from scratch rather than just maintaining, you’ll want to use Deep Treatments.

Our model had used a few different brands of dye that faded to a pastel mixture that she wanted to brighten:

Pick colors that blend well

Put similar tones next to each other in order to avoid muddiness: you don’t want to blend orange and blue together or other tones that are opposite on the color wheel. Our model used Vibrant Pink, Vibrant Purple and Vibrant Teal Daily Conditioners.

Section

Section, section, section: say it with me now. Applying color in sections will make it so much easier to make the color evenly – especially on the back of your head where you can’t see.

Apply and blend

As you apply the conditioner, be sure to blend wherever two colors meet so that you have smooth transitions. Once your color is on, you can let the next section down and continue applying all over. You can apply on wet or dry hair – dry hair will result in more saturated color.

Wait 3-5 minutes for Daily Conditioners, or 10 minutes for Deep Treatments, then rinse – no need to shampoo afterwards. Bye, faded hair. Watch our video tutorial on Youtube to see it in more detail!
