Coloring and Maintaining Extensions

Coloring hair extensions

Exploring different hairstyles can include different lengths and cuts, but also a whole array of beautiful hair colors that can change your entire look. Getting hair extensions to make your hair more voluminous does not imply that you cannot play around with exciting colors, and experiment with your hair. However, this means you need to consult a professional hairdresser when changing your hair color because your extensions need to be colored and maintained differently than your natural hair.  When considering a new look, don’t forget to…

Pay Attention to Your Skin Tone Before Deciding on a Color

Not all hair colors are suited for all skin tones so listen to your hairdresser’s opinion and suggestions. If your skin is pale, you will look much better with warmer tones in your hair, and if you have a dark skin tone, opt for cooler colors.

Balayage vs. Highlights

Moisturize

If you want your hair to look its best for the longest possible time, use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, and choose those products that target damaged, dry, and colored hair. Use a moisturizing mask weekly.

Avoid Washing Your Hair Too Often

Do not wash your hair daily because your hair color will fade and strip the hair of its natural oils. Invest in a good dry shampoo instead, and try to prolong the periods between washes.

Avoid Coloring Your Hair Yourself

Bleaching your hair for too long, and using low-quality hair dyes, can lead to hair damage that will be difficult end expensive to repair, ruining your extensions in the process. Homemade mixing of different colors might end up giving you a completely different result from what you’ve hoped for, forcing you to invest in professional coloring services anyway.
