With so many options available, there is bound to be a perfect style for everyone! Clip-in hair extensions have taken the world by storm and will continue to do so for years to come… Whether you are into wavy hair, or a longer, sleek look; there will be a color and style that is perfect for you! You can easily find a product that fits in with your budget; making sure that your new look doesn’t break the bank. Dying your clip-in hair extensions are quite easy to accomplish and these tips will help you with the process:
When opting to dye your hair extensions, just remember to stay away from bleaching. Although it is perfectly safe to dye your extensions, try not to change their color too frequently. Be sure to choose the correct shade from the start. In many cases, you won’t need to dye the extensions at all, providing that the color already matches your natural hair. If you do want to change the color, the best option would be to take it to a hair dresser; having your stylist cut and color the hair to blend as naturally as possible with your own!
If you prefer to do the dying yourself, do a strand-test first to make sure you have chosen the correct color. Even though the color can seem perfect on the bottle, it is not always the case on every piece of hair, that’s why it’s important to do a small test first. Also, some dyes have been known to cause damage to hair extensions so better do a strand-test first. When you are happy with the results, you can proceed to dye the rest of the extensions too. Make sure that you apply the dye evenly across all strands and that you rinse off the dye thoroughly too. In general, it is easier to dye hair to a darker color, as opposed to lightening the hair. Blond hair has likely been exposed to bleaching already, so special care should be taken with those.
Finding the Perfect Color
If you cannot decide between two colors it is best to choose the lighter shade, as this would be easier to dye to a darker color than other way round. Also, when choosing a dye, opt for a good, reputable brand as this can increase the life of your extensions. Many people also choose to have two sets of clip-in hair extensions available so that they can change between them without having to dye either one first. There is nothing wrong with having more than one pair of extensions – it’s a time saver for many! In fact, I mix it up all the time, using an extension that’s one shade darker toward the bottom part of my hair – it just looks more natural!
If you have found the perfect set of hair extensions, you should look after them as if you would your own. You can use normal shampoo and conditioner and it is also recommended to use a hair treatment on them every few weeks to further preserve their shine and color. These fashionable accessories truly are one of the best ways to add glamour to your look in a snap!
