Platinum Blonde is beautiful and trendy!
Platinum Blonde looks so cool in hair, but it takes pains to achieve that color. That goes for all the offshoot color trends too.
Virgin Hair Extensions are The Best Type of Hair for Dyeing
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.
