If you're not sure what I mean by "blonde ombre dip-dye", here are some delightfully chic looking celebs who have also fait partie de le trend:

Au naturel, my hair is a light brown colour, but it tends to get a lot lighter by itself over the summer - give me a couple of weeks in the Algarve every year and BOOM! Out comes Goldilocks. But until then, whilst still here in good ole sun-challenged England, I've taken matters into my own hands. And readers, it is so simple, so effortless, and SO CHEAP! Don't go booking yourself into an expensive hair salon until you've finished reading this.
My secret? John Frieda Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray. According to John Frieda himself (well, maybe not, but the website anyway):
The lightening formula with citrus and chamomile works with heat tools for gradual lightening and brightening blonde hair by up to one and a half shades in 3-5 uses.
However, I should add that the spray should apparently only be used on already blonde hair (I have some very old, largely grown-out highlights, I confess), so don't try and use it on jet-black locks or anything.
To create my dip-dye, I've been careful to only use the spray on the bottom few inches of my hair, and it's as simple as that. Over a few weeks, it's gradually got blonder, creating the exact look I wanted for summer. Hoorah! AND said lightening spray is currently a mere £5.20 in Superdrug, which is a bit of a barg if you ask me. The bottle is lasting me forever too. SO GET ON IT, GALS!
