Can I Dye My Hair Extensions?

It’s no secret that hair extensions can be a great way to change your look, but what about coloring them? Can you dye hair extensions without damaging them? The short answer is yes; you can dye hair extensions. 

However, not all types of hair extensions can be dyed without damage. For example, synthetic hair extensions cannot be dyed without causing damage. On the other hand, human hair extensions can be dyed as long as you take proper care of them before and after coloring.

Planning To Dye Your Hair Extensions? Follow These Tips!

Do A Small Test On A Strand First

Before you dye all of your hair extensions, doing a small test on one strand is always a good idea. That will help you see how the color affects the hair and if there are any adverse effects. It’s also important to understand that the color will not take to the hair as evenly as it would your natural hair. 

To avoid uneven coloration, we recommend doing a patch test on a small section of the hair extensions before dyeing them all. That will help you understand how the color will turn out and whether you need to make any adjustments.

Choose a High-Quality Dye

When dyeing human hair extensions, using a semi-permanent or demi-permanent hair color is recommended. These hair colors will deposit color onto the hair without causing as much damage as a permanent hair color. If you’re using a box dye, read the instructions carefully before applying it to your hair extensions.

Avoid Using Bleach

Bleach is incredibly damaging to the hair and can cause the hair to become dry, brittle, and break off. If you want a lighter color, it’s recommended to use a high-lift hair color instead.

Use A Nourishing Conditioner

After you’ve dyed your hair extensions, it’s important to use a nourishing conditioner to keep them healthy and hydrated. Try using a conditioner with built-in heat protectant properties to help keep the hair from becoming damaged.
