It's a hair problem, too.

Can I solve dark hair dye buildup by getting ombré coloring done in a salon, and then maintain it by doing my roots at home?

I've been dyeing my hair brown. At the roots, it looks great, very close to my natural color.
At the ends, it's a different story. I just did not anticipate how awful the buildup would be. I started by doing the whole length. Then, chastened, I started doing the roots only and spreading it to the ends during the last 10 minutes.
The effect is still awful. It looks fake, lurid and horribly ageing.
I have been growing my hair for eleven years now and it is finally below shoulder blade length. Cutting it all off is not an option.
So, would it help if I got an ombré color treatment in a salon and after that maintained the roots and only the roots?
