How To Dye Clip In Hair Extensions
The extensions can only be dyed darker by 2 shades, or you can add a toner. They can’t be lightened or bleached as they have already been through a chemical process and additional lightening or bleaching is likely to affect the condition of the hair.
If dyeing more than 2 shades darker we recommend using the ‘Dye It Yourself’ extensions they are a neutral shade and will need to be prepigmented prior to adding your dye.
You will need to use more dye than if you were applying it to your own hair (usually 2 boxes of dye per whole head of extensions). You must completely saturate the extensions in dye to prevent an uneven result.
We recommend applying dye to each strip of hair one at a time and to always perform a test strand. This means dyeing just a few strands of the hair first to check the result shade is correct.
Do not rub or tangle the hair, apply the dye and using the flat palms of your hands pat it though the hair in a stroking motion from root to tip.
Semi permanent, permanent, quasi-permanent, toner and vibrant dyes can be used. The maximum peroxide which can be used is 20vol (6%).
The hair can be dyed several times but remember, just as your own hair will become damaged from certain dyes so too will the extensions.
Always follow the dye manufacturers instructions and be sure to follow our care guidelines when washing and drying the hair.
