I'm not quite figuring out the ombre hair color trend. To me it just looks like someone either can't be bothered to do their roots or they're letting color grow out and they don't want to spend the money to have something done to it in the interim.

Can anyone explain? Possibly someone that has it (and I hope I haven't offended you )?

My hands are BRIGHT red, in pain and swollen. I can't make a fist, or anything without pain.

It's like I have a burn but without the means to burn (unless I can get a burn from hand sanitizer - everyone else uses it and nothing happens).

I thought my hands were really dry but hand cream makes it worse (both initially and over time).

Why, yes, I am whining - I know people have worse problems, but this still sucks!

You didn't cut up jalapenos or peppers, did you?

I only ask because I cut up a bunch of peppers and later that night couldn't for the life of me figure out why my skin was hurting so bad on my hands. It was so painful!!

Nope. The only possible irritant I've used lately is the hand sanitizer, but I was using that at my previous job too, so it's not really *new*. I've just been using more of it, and in theory that would dry out my hands, which would get better by using hand cream, right (it's not a new hand cream I've been using it for months and never had an issue with it)?

(and in my experience, dry hands don't feel hot like a burn does)

That's what it looks like to me, too. Good way to take time between root touch ups and call it trendy.

I think if it's not done well, that's what it looks like. Otherwise, if the colors are blended well, and not an "abrupt" change, it can look really nice!

Yah I do not get it....looks like you are growing out a color to me.

This is the only photo I could find where it looks decent to me-like you were doing something and not just growing it out.

Found another one where it does not look bad.

I love baths in the fall and winter (i have a soaking tub) and showers in the spring and summer.

When I discovered this forum I was washing my hair every single day. I was beyond OCD about it. Now I go 2 to 3 days in between co washings. Sometimes I manage to make it 5 days. My hair could stand several more days in between washings, but I can't.

I am fond of hair dryers, in the colder months. I completely air dry in the summer. Maybe it's because my mom used to play with my hair and put me under her hooded dryer. I always found it relaxing. Any who, I have a hooded and a standard. I really want one that rotates around your head.

That's exactly what it is, in this house, anyway. Two summers ago, DD1 used Sun-In on her light to medium brown hair, enough to make the change very evident. She had spent the summer at her grandparents house. I was there the first half, she knew better than to try this while I was around. The second I saw her when she got back, I recognized what she'd done. My college roommate did the same thing one summer, only she was a med to dark brown. Well, DD was 15 and dumb as a brick, she thought I'd fall for: We all used lemon in our hair when we were on the beach. Yeah, right.

Our hairdresser knew right away, too, and refused to touch her hair with color. (Past experience is that traditional color will now melt the hair.) She won't admit it, but I'm sure DD thought I'd have to spring for highlighting, in order to make the growth blend in. Instead, she's been 'growing it out' ever since. Finally, now at 17, she's considering cutting off the remaining blonde. All along, though, she's been using the 'ombre trend' line with me and her friends.

I think "they" probably got the idea from the way a person's hair looks when it naturally lightens in the sun the season after it happens. My hair gets pretty significantly lighter in the summer if I'm out a lot and then as fall/winter creeps up, my grow out is darker, but not with a hard line. I can't figure out why that's something someone would go into a salon and ask for though. :shrug:

Why do you need it explain? You just described the look perfectly. Let me spend mega bucks to look like my hair is growing...


Oh sweet, Baby Calvin, please help me to night...I feel icky.

What prompted my ombre color pondering was seeing a commercial for some Garnier hair color specifically for this trend. Xcptnl, those pictures you posted don't look bad at all, the first one looks intentional. The hair on this commercial was.. not good.

Speckla, I'll send baby Calvin right over. He'll fix ya right up with lots of cuddles and letting you scratch his belly.

murrr, I had a sneaking suspicion you were an ombre lover.

Y'ALL.

This guy came to see something we have listed on Craig's List and will NOT stop talking. IT'S PAST DINNER TIME, FOOL!

At least he bought the item, but Jesus take the wheel he needs to GO because my stomach is growling and dinner is getting cold!!! At least I'm not the one stuck talking to him, Mr. Spring takes one for the team yet again.
