This may seem obvious, but in order to get the truest match, we recommend coloring your hair and waiting three to five washes before choosing your extensions – this way, your color will have regulated. The first day you color your hair, it’s often a touch darker or more saturated than how your hair will typically look.
Should you dye hair before or after?
If that’s not an option — for example, if you already have a stylist and colorist you love, and they work out of different salons — always opt to get your hair cut first, then bleached, dyed, or highlighted (preferably, within a few days of each other). As Thompson says, “The cut’s going to make the color.”
Can you dye tape in extensions while in your hair?
Tapes. If you have tape hair extensions and you want to know “can you dye hair extensions”, the answer is yes! You’ll need to avoid the tape area though – the dye could damage the attachment.
How do you blend extensions with different colored hair?
Prefer clip in dark shades hair wefts at the bottom of the head and lighter shade wefts towards the upper side. This will make your hair look natural as natural hair illuminates when lightened by sun. Reciprocate each side of your weft while using two-color hair extensions. This helps to blend the hair in the best way.
How do I prepare my hair for coloring?
A good rule of thumb is to shampoo your hair at least 24 to 48 hours before your coloring session, unless otherwise directed. You want there to be a natural protective oil layer on your scalp to act as a barrier against the chemicals in the hair dye.
