These are the settings I use. Select one of the texture segments.
Here I usually put the crosshair in the middle of a highlight and then hold shift to keep it straight, hold the left mouse button, and move my mouse downwards until I reach the second highlight, then release the left mouse button. Check the texture in Bodyshop. If the color looks good, then you can leave it.
Personally, I hardly ever get it right on the first try.
Repeat steps for every remaining segment of the texture that needs the ombre. Some segments need solid colors however based on the mapping of the hair.
Sometimes parts of the hair texture are only mapped to the top or bottom or the hair so you might want them to be fully blonde or fully brown depending on where they are. For the blonde you would just not touch it at all. And this is my finished texture. You will then use this PSD to make all of your color combinations.
So for other colors, I simply run Dynamite or whichever other color you choose over my base volatile texture, then I copy and paste it into my PSD. This way you can easily switch the colors in and out. Open the two colors you are going to use within one document.
It should now look something like this. Then select the gradient tool. Make sure the layer mask is still selected. Right click Layer 2 and select Merge Down.
