L'Oreal Glam Bronde Preference Dye

I'm a bit of a chameleon when it comes to my hair, as you'll know if you've been following my blog for a while, in the past few years I've been pink, dip dyed and dark brown so naturally when L'Oreal offered me a chance to try their new ''Bronde'' kit I was more than happy to! 

Bronde is a colour that is not blonde but also not brunette...basically it means highlights/balayage hair.
J-Lo is the spokesperson for this product and she's a bit of a goddess so if it's good enough for her it's good enough for me! 
 Firstly apologies if the picture quality isn't that great, I used my phone camera because my usual camera is out of action.
Onto the product!
It has this novel brush with it that you squeeze the lightening formula onto and then brush it down your hair with the prongs vertical, so it brushes down your hair in streaks (see the picture above).

I waited 45 minutes, which is the maximum development time you should leave it for, and then I jumped into the shower and rinsed it off, applied the conditioner, then rinsed that off and bingo! Done.

 Overall I was pretty pleased with the results.
Personally I find the colour it lightened my hair to to be a bit warm, but I think it might look better after I've used a purple toner on it to expel some of the brassiness.

I found the gimmicky three pronged brush hard to work with, I found that it deposited a lot of product at the roots but then by the time I got down to the tips of my hair the brush was dry! So I had to go over it again from just the mid-lengths to the tips.

 I curled my hair because I thought it looked a lot better like that rather than straight, when it's straight it almost has a stripy effect!

Once I've toned my hair I'll do an update on my thoughts about this products but I think my summary at the moment would be, if you're mid-brown or lighter then this would be good for your hair and lighten it adequately, but if you're any darker than that then it would definitely turn your hair quite gingery.
Also if you have red undertones to your hair I'm not sure you'd like this either, for the same reasons as above, it would make your highlights too warm.

I'm a big fan of L'Oreal's Extreme Ombre kits, but this one doesn't compare to that, the brush is much harder to use and it left my hair a bit warmer than I'd like.
Saying that, I'm still happy with how my hair looks and think I will be a lot happier after I've toned it.

Would you use this kit to do your own at-home balayage? Let me know!
