If you go to your local virgin hair weave retailer or distributor, you will see that each of their hair bundles already come in a variety of color. Nevertheless, don’t let this stop you from putting a personal flair on the hair you buy by dying it with your own choice of shade. Below are some helpful tips on dyeing hair extensions for you:
Test your Weave
You should first perform a strand test to find out just how your weave will respond to the dye. Purchase a semi-permanent toner or dye that will only change the color by a few shades, apply it to a few strands, and observe the effects. Determine how much time is required to get to the shade you want.
Applying the Dye
When you’re ready to dye your weave, make sure that the hair remains clean and tangle-free, and work from the roots to the tips. Leave the dye on for the amount of time set by the manufacturer, or based on your strand test.
Rinse and More
Use warm water to rinse the dye and shampoo off the hair, then apply a conditioner that’s formulated for hair extensions. Make sure to avoid the bonded areas near your scalp. Rinse out the conditioner with warm water yet again, then pat your hair dry with a towel.
