Can You Color Human Hair Extensions?

Human hair extensions can transform your look and allow you to change and try out new hairstyles. Indian Remy hair extensions are the longest lasting extensions, and can be worn for a year or longer, with proper care. A common question that most women have is whether or not they can dye their human hair extensions. After all, having colored hair is a good way to get a new look, without having to buy new hair.

The answer is yes, you can dye your human hair extensions!

Experts say that only human hair extensions can be successfully colored with regular hair color. An attribute of human hair weaves or extensions is the benefit of treating them similar to your own hair, especially when you want to defy the color. Extensions made of synthetic hair cannot be altered with regular hair color.

Also, virgin remy hair extensions are the best candidates for dyeing. Since they have not been chemically processed in any way, they can be dyed with minimal damage to the hair. Experts advise that you don’t attempt to dye non-Remy hair weaves. These hair extensions have been chemically treated, stripping the strand to its weakest. They are generally not strong enough to be dyed.

Things to remember when dyeing your human hair extensions:

Do a strand test first: Even though you can dye your human 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.

Avoid bleaching: Don’t bleach your hair extension because harsh treatments such as bleaching may dissolve the bonding agent used for the hair weaves.

Avoid using many chemicals at the same time: If you perm and dye your hair extensions together, it can ruin results. Choose one and wait a couple of weeks before applying the other chemical substance to the extension.

Always remember that just as strong chemicals can strip and damage your natural hair, harsh chemicals can also damage your human hair extensions beyond repair.
