If your clip in hair extensions aren’t quite the right color and you’d like to color them at home, these steps can guide you through the process.Before you begin you’ll want to make sure that your hair extensions are human hair. Artificial hair can not be successfully colored .
And before you reach for the nearest dye bottle and hastily paint your clip in hair extensions a different colour, there are a couple of things you should consider when dyeing hair extensions.
1.) Do not use more than 20 volume peroxide. As hair extensions are usually drier than our own growing locks, we recommend using a dye that’s no more than 20 volume peroxide, to stop the extensions from drying out further. Also, its best to use a cream based dye, as this is much gentler to use and dye hair extensions with.
2.) You should ALWAYS perform a strand test before dyeing your hair extensions. To do this, mix some of the dye into a bowl and apply it to one small clip-in weft. Once the dye has developed, you can then see if the dye is the right shade and determine whether you want to proceed to use the dye on the rest of your hair extensions.
Got that? OK, we can now get on with showing you how to dye hair extensions!
1.How to Dye Hair Extensions Ombre
The secret to how to dye hair extensions ombre is to dye the top halves of the wefts darker to match the rest of your natural, own growing hair.This means choosing a set of hair extensions that resemble the ends of your chosen ombre look. To dye your hair extensions ombre, you’ll need:
– A mixing bowl
– A tint brush
– Hair dye kit
– Leave-in conditioner
