  • Can You Dye Hair Extensions? Yes! - How To Dye Hair Extensions...

    A lot of people, those who are new to hair extensions and even those who have experience in hair extensions are unaware that you can dye hair extensions yourself! Dirty Looks stock clip in extensions in shade "Dye it Yourself” these are perfect for people who can’t find their match on the website and would prefer to dye the extensions in the same colour they dye their own hair.  It doesn’t just have to be the "Dye it Yourself” extensions, you can dye any of the human hair extensions to match your own hair provided it’s just by a few shades. The extensions can only be dyed darker, or you can add a toner. They cannot be lightened or bleached as they have already been through a chemical process and additional coloring or bleaching is likely to affect the condition of the hair.

    Before dyeing the extensions ALWAYS DO A STRAND TEST, this means dyeing just a few strands of the hair first to give you an idea of how the colour is going to come out. Once you have done a strand test and you are happy with the results you can go ahead and dye the rest of the hair extensions. You will need to use much more of the dye than you might usually use as you will have to completely saturate the extensions in the dye to guarantee a true, even colour.

    The freedom to dye hair extensions is also handy for those who want to change the colour of their own hair, simply dye your extensions at the same time with the same shade.

    If you have dyed your hair extensions you will then need to wash them. You can wash and condition them following our guide on www.dirtylooks.com  Please keep a few things in mind... don’t rub the hair vigorously when you shampoo and condition, it’s best to smooth the product into the hair extensions by running your hands down the hair to prevent tangling them.

    We highly recommend that you then allow the hair extensions to dry naturally and then straighten them out once dry.

    You don’t necessarily need to wash the hair extensions, certainly not often as they don’t get the same supply of natural oils as your own hair therefore they tend to stay fairly clean.

    Clip in hair extensions are so versatile, not only can you achieve various styles but you can change the colour to suit you!
