Flip through any celebrity magazine, or any Huffington Post article that’s about Hollywood celebrities, and you’ll see a plethora of women with full, voluminous hair with that perfectly shaded ombre hair. It’s gorgeous, yes, but the real question is, is it attainable for the rest of us?
In short, the answer is yes. When you opt for human hair extensions rather than the synthetic kind, the opportunities for customization and styling are almost limitless, as if they are your own hair. Not only are you able to style the extensions with flat irons and other hot tools, but you can also color your hair.
But first, it is important to note that you should always work with an experienced stylist. While you can dye your hair, these extensions are already chemically treated before you even buy them. These chemicals will affect how the dye reacts to the hair. Having someone who’s comfortable dealing with hair and hair extensions, and sensitive to information about this, will only make your experience go more smoothly.
Here are some other things to remember before dying your extensions:
- Dying hair damages hair, and hair extensions don’t grow. Don’t overdo the coloring.
- A full color change is discouraged; you’ll want to keep chemicals away from your scalp
- Highlights are generally the better choice
- Dying the extensions can caused the hair to straighten out, so if you’ve purchased curly hair extensions, coloring is discouraged (then again, you could always curl it again with a curling iron after the coloring)
