Usually, we can do anything with Human Hair Extensions that you can do to your natural hair. This includes dyeing, cutting, heat styling and chemically processing your human hair. Many weave wearers dye hair extensions to get an exact match to their natural hair color. It’s very effective and turns out beautiful! But please remember, all above things are base on natural hair, what about bleached hair?
Do keep in mind that Virgin Hair Extensions are the best type of weaves for dyeing your hair. Virgin Remy hair extensions have not been chemically processed in any way, so they can be dyed without causing hardly any damage to your hair.
Experts advise that we should not attempt to dye non-Remy hair extensions.T his kind of hair extensions have been chemically treated, which strips the strands to their weakest. They are generally not strong enough to be dyed.
Blecached Hair Can be Dyed too, But not Suggested
Previously bleached hair is missing important proteins and molecules to keep the Strand strong, blonde hair color has a high ammonia content which could cause bleached hair to melt or break if not used with the right developer mixture. If you are trying to change the color of your blonde using a toner is a better option with a lower developer strength. This is something that a professional cosmetologist should be helping you with and not something you should be doing at home.
Do Not Use Box Dye for Bleached Hair Dyeing
Of course you can put blonde hair dye on bleached hair. It’s a matter of how damaged your hair already is. So ask yourself some questions before grabbing the dye. Are you buying box dye or mixing your own?
While Box Dye is quite a bit cheaper if you are doing this, it might melt your hair extensions.
If you are using a box kit, it will have a high lift developer in it. This will fry your hair more, as it is the same type of developer most use for bleaching their hair. Most Box kits also say to NOT use them on bleached hair which will be written on the directions. They are not formulated for use on bleached hair. It could fry or melt your hair, resulting in a bad color, and a short haircut. I would avoid a box kit like the plague in this situation.
The professional salon or beauty supply store, it would depend on the type of blonde dye you are looking for and the shape your bleached hair is currently in. A direct dye or a semi-permanent one may work, though the color may not last as long as a permanent dye. If the salon do not offer you that, you would need to see if the store you go to carries a blonde dye for use on bleached hair, you will want to avoid developer to try to prevent further damage.
Bleached hair reacts differently to dye than virgin or natural color hair. It can be more damaged, depending on how it was bleached, what products were used, and how often it has been bleached. If it has been bleached too much or is too fried from bleaching, it may not take the dye.
Dyeing Hair in Salon or Consulting Your Hair Stylist
Of course, your best option is to have a consultation with a licensed, well-trained colorist to discuss both your hair’s condition and the end result you are hoping to achieve. Even if you don’t have the colorist do the dyeing, you will have a better idea of whether or not your hair is healthy enough to handle another process. Be honest with the colorist during your consultation, since your honesty can get you the best answers. A good consultation is cheaper than color correction from a bad DIY home dye job.
Virgin Remy Hair Extensions can be dyed into all kinds of color, so it can be dyed easily and do little harm to the hair. However, when human hair extensions are dyed from a darker color to a lighter color the hair often becomes damaged somehow. To avoid this, always dye the hair from a lighter color to a darker color. Make sure the hair extensions you want to recolor is of natural color or processed hair being dyed from a darker color to a lighter color.
Dyeing Hair Colors from Light to Darker
If a supplier does not have the exact color you are after, then purchase the set that is one or two shades lighter than your present hair tone and dye the extensions to match that darker shade. This will result in less stripping to the hair follicle and lead to much better results. The other option is purchase the virgin remy hair and dye it into what you want. You can do anything with human hair extensions that you can do to your natural hair. This includes dyeing, cutting, heat styling and chemically processing your human hair.
Test a Strand of Hair First
No matter what kind of hair extensions you are using for dyeing. Remember that: do a strand test first. Even though you can dye your hair extensions, you should first test to see how they will handle the coloring process. Mix the dye as directed, then apply to one small strand or section of the hair. Take note of the end result before continuing to dye the rest of your hair.

African American Hair ranges from slightly wavy to extremely curly, and maybe caused by the heredity, it usually tend to be drier and curlier than Caucasian or Asian hair. African American hair is easy to be kinky, tangled, which is especially fragile and prone to injury and damage. African American hair tends to be brittle and prone to breakage if not cared for properly. Lots of African American women are concerning about their fine hair or hair loss and put the caring the hair as one of their daily work. So, there are lots of measurement to care for the African American hair nowadays, here, let’s talk about some efficiency tips on caring for African American hair.
1. Moisturize Is The Key, Wash Hair Once a Week
All hair needs moisture from water. African American hair needs to be fully replenished and exposed to water at a minimum of once a week (and often washing more often than this strips protective oils, leaving the hair open to environmental drying- this is why it’s not often recommended to just wash it daily. This will help prevent build-up of hair care products, which can be drying to the hair. African hair does not often get overly oily like Caucasian or Asian hair does when it is not washed for several days.
African hair tends to be naturally dry with minimal oil, which is why it isn’t necessary to use shampoo more than once a week. Shampooing your hair several times a day or even every day strips the oil that the hair needs from the hair shaft so that it becomes drier, frizzier and more prone to breaking. Use the hydrating shampoos but not the clarifying, because the clarifying shampoo are the worst for African American hair.
2. Use Conditioner Every Time You Wash Your Hair
African American hair tends to be dry, it’s essential to use conditioner every time you shampoo your hair to restore moisture. When you condition, be sure to coat the ends of the hair with conditioner, as the ends are the oldest and most fragile part of your hair and keep the conditioner in your hair for a few minutes before washing it out.
3. Hold The Moisture In
After you finish washing your hair, the hair needs help to keep all that moisture in. Adding a generous amount of mixture of shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil in or other fatty product applied to the strands from tip to root to lock that moisture in, which keeps the hair pliant. Protect the hair from wind and extreme temperatures with silky coverings.
3. Co-washing the Hair if Your Exercise Regularly
Co-washing is short for “conditioner-only washing”. It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on conditioner. If you love to jogging or exercise regularly which will bring you sweat, then you may need to cleanse your hair more often than once a week to remove the sweat. Instead of using shampoo, co-wash with conditioner in between your weekly cleanses. Hair conditioner will gently cleanse away sweat or other buildup while keeping the healthy oils in your hair.
5. Use a Leave In Moisturizer Daily
Using a leave in conditioner or moisturizer on days that you don’t wash or condition your hair ensures that your hair stays hydrated so that it looks good and is protected from damage. Use a light leave-in moisturizer formulated for African American hair at the beginning of the day before styling your hair.
Try to find a moisturizer that contains essential oils, which are absorbed into the hair and moisturize. Avoid products containing lanolin or other greasy ingredients that sit on the surface of the hair and weigh it down.
Spritz your hair with water, then apply the moisturizer, or find a moisturizer than can be used on dry hair. Use the moisturizer on all of your hair, but pay special attention to the tips of your hair, which are the oldest and driest.
6. Use a Hot Oil Treatment Your Hair Bimonthly
In addition to your regular maintenance of your hair, doing a monthly or bimonthly deep conditioning treatment will adds additional moisture and elasticity to your hair, making it more moisturized and less brittle.
7. Protect the Hair
African American is fragile. So, the hair has to be protected from tangling, knotting (single strand knots) breakage and snapping. Use the comb with the widest-possible tooth, and make sure it doesn’t have sharp edges that will saw at non-straightened strands. This means be leery of elastics and rubber bands, combs and brushes, ribbons, pillow cases, towels, shirts and jacket collars (people rarely think about those last, but they matter).
We should also save non-protective styles for special occasions. Style the hair to tuck the ends, avoid free strands and brushing or scraping on collars and pillows and drying materials, and in such a way that it doesn’t have to be styled every day.
8. Detangle And Comb The African Hair Only When Fully Moisturized
Sometimes fingers are the best tools, use fingers to manipulate the African hair after an initial detangling. Or use the widest-toothed comb possible, and detangle from end toward the root, never yank abruptly. Make sure that hair is fully dampened when being styled.
Detangle and separate the hair section by section, and rub each one individually, braid or separate it again after rinsing it, then go to the next part. The less the hair has a chance to rub against each other, the less chance strands will tangle and thus get snapped when trying to separate them.
9. Heat Gently And Infrequently
It’s recommended to wear the hair as close to the natural texture as possible to prevent having to stretch it and giving more opportunities for snapping. But if you need to blow dry, flat iron, or straighten the hair, use the lowest temperature possible for the job. Only use heat on clean hair that has a protective product applied. Use a heat protecting product before styling.
10. Keep a Well Nourished Wholesome Diet and Good Mood Everyday
Make sure your body is well nourished with wholesome diet of your choice, with plenty of water, get sufficient rest, and seek the lowest level of stress in your life.
Open your mind to the many possibilities of African American hair. Have a good mood everyday. Everything will work a little differently for everyone. You hope for good, good will follow you. Enjoy the beauty of the African American hair spectrum.
What will you feel if your hair tangles in mess in the morning and no matter what we do, it just can’t be gladly served under you. That would be definitely ruin our brand new day’s mood, i guess. It’s said that all hair textures are prone to tangles and the curly hair are more at risk. Maybe it is because of the curly hair is often dry and coarse, so it is of large probability to lead to annoying snarls. However, it is not worth losing our good mood due to the tangled hair. Have a look ate these tips for taming your naughty hair decently.
1. Detangle Hair in Sections
Please do yourself a favor and detangle your hair in sections. I have made this mistake several times trying to rush through my detangling session and not taking my time to do it in sections. By detangling your hair in sections, you make it easier for yourself. Trust me you don’t want to do this task with huge sections. Your arms will hurt and it will not be a wise choice for your hair. Use clips to help you section off your hair with the process to make life that much easier!
Please remember detangle your hair sections by section, don’t try to work them all in one time. It’s easier to detangle and it can save your time actually compare to rush all your hair in one time. Your arms will hurt and it’s not good to your hair. Use the clips to help you section off your hair while detangling your hair, it will keep your hair detangle healthily and save more time.
2. Opt for the Proper Combs
