A lot of people, those who are new to hair extensions and even those who
have experience in hair extensions are unaware that you can dye hair extensions
yourself! Headkandy stock clip in extensions in shade "Dye it Yourself” these
are perfect for people who can’t find their match on the website and would
prefer to dye the extensions in the same colour they dye their own hair. It doesn’t just have to be the "Dye it
Yourself” extensions, you can dye any of the human hair extensions to match
your own hair provided it’s just by a few shades. The extensions can only be dyed
darker, or you can add a toner. They cannot be lightened or bleached as they
have already been through a chemical process and additional colouring or
bleaching is likely to affect the condition of the hair.
Before dyeing the extensions ALWAYS DO A STRAND TEST, this means dyeing
just a few strands of the hair first to give you an idea of how the colour is
going to come out. Once you have done a strand test and you are happy with the
results you can go ahead and dye the rest of the hair extensions. You will need
to use much more of the dye than you might usually use as you will have to
completely saturate the extensions in the dye to guarantee a true, even colour.
The freedom to dye hair extensions is also handy for those who want to
change the colour of their own hair, simply dye your extensions at the same
time with the same shade.
If you have dyed your hair extensions you will then need to wash them.
You can wash and condition them following our guide on www.headkandy.com Please keep a few things in mind... don’t rub
the hair vigorously when you shampoo and condition, it’s best to smooth the
product into the hair extensions by running your hands down the hair to prevent
We highly recommend that you then allow the hair extensions to dry
naturally and then straighten them out once dry.
You don’t necessarily need to wash the hair extensions, certainly not
often as they don’t get the same supply of natural oils as your own hair
therefore they tend to stay fairly clean.
Clip in hair extensions are so versatile, not only can you achieve
various styles but you can change the colour to suit you!
