I have been working on a new look for my hair and my extensions, and after I got my desired result I couldn't wait to share it with you beauties.
The hair I used for this is from Cliphair Ltd and it's remy human hair in the lightest blonde shade.
Their hair can be curled, straightened, washed and even dyed, but I know not many girls are willing to put dye on their extensions, since you can't be sure of how they will react.
The double wefted lightest blonde hair extensions from Cliphair look exactly like in the pictures from their website, the lush, thick hair is super smooth and feels very silky to the touch.
I took this beautiful blonde and turned into a bright red to blonde ombre:
And I even have a picture tutorial of how I achieved this hair, step by step!
You will need:
- plastic covers for the surface you will be working on
- two boxes of hair dye of your color choice
- a comb or a brush
- a recipient to mix your hair dye in
- a paint brush, mine is from Wella
- your hair extensions
Now let's look at the steps that I took:
Place the first weft on your surface, you will work on them one by one. Don't skip combing or brushing through your weft, this will ensure you get all the hair covered.
Cover your weft in a good amount of hair dye mix, and go as far as your natural hair would go if you are only doing the ombre on the extensions and not on your hair too.
For the rest of your extension's hair length, flip your brush and do strokes that continue from the blunt dye and fade into the ends.
At the end your weft should look like this:
All done? Great, now flip the weft on the other side and repeat the process!
Wait 40 minutes then wash off the dye with cold water.
I actually dyed my extensions twice that day because the first time I did not measure correctly and I ended up with the red part on them being way shorter than my red hair. Here is my final result:
I am very pleased and surprised that after two consecutive dying sessions, the hair is still shiny and soft!
I also dyed my previous Cliphair extensions and I still have them to this day. I can't guarantee that other brands would work just as well, but if you have Cliphair, you have nothing to worry about.
And as for how they look on myself... it's SHAMELESS SELFIE PICTURE TIME!
And there I was, in the front of my house, taking selfies like the lady that I am ha ha :D
I am very happy with how they turned out, I was going for a "fire" look and I think it got there.
Have you ever dyed your hair extensions at home dolls? How was your experience?
