DYEING OUR SPECIALLY SELECTED BASE SHADES OMBRE
Choose one of the following hair shades to ombre:

You should always perform a strand test before dyeing your set of extensions. This means testing the dye on one clip weft first. You can do this by mixing a small amount of the dye and applying it to the top half of one clip weft (read and follow the dyeing instructions beforehand). Then leave the dye to process before proceeding with our cleanse and drying guides.
Once you are happy with the shade, apply the rest of the dye to the top halves of each weft. Use a tint brush to brush the dye through the hair extensions and sweep the brush from the top of the weft downwards to stop the hair from tangling. Complete the dyeing process by following the dyeing instructions for its recommended leaving time.

Before washing your hair extensions, apply a small amount of conditioner to the ends of the wefts (remember to wear gloves). This will stop the dye from running to the dye-free ends when you wash the hair extensions.
Hold the hair at the top of the weft and rinse under warm water. Then lather shampoo into the hair and rinse thoroughly. Wash the hair extensions again with a second dose of shampoo, before rinsing away. Complete this step by massaging conditioner into the extensions and finish off by rinsing them under running water.
To dry the hair, lay the wefts flat onto an old, dry towel. Then spray the hair with a leave-in conditioner and leave to dry overnight. Avoid brushing the hair at this stage as the hair can shred when it’s wet. Once the hair is dry, you can then gently comb the hair, remembering to brush from the bottom of the hair and working your way upwards to avoid creating any tangles.
After you have dyed your hair extensions, you should avoid using any styling products on them as this can dry them out. Instead, apply a heat protector on the hair and gently straighten each weft at a time, using a pair of hair straighteners or curling with curling tongs.
