DIY Extension Dying At Home
For those of you who like DIY hair dying, this blog is just for you. If I can learn to do it myself, then I'm all in. Below are six very easy steps to dying your hair weave at home.
Materials Needed: Hair Extensions / Tracks Hair Dye or color, a brush, color bowl, plastic wrap, gloves, large towel, aluminium foil, and a wide tooth comb.
Step One - First, be sure to disentangle the extensions by combing through them with your wide tooth comb. Make sure that all product are completely washed out of the extensions before applying the color. Dry the extensions after disentangling and washing them by placing them on a towel.
Step Two - Next, prepare the hair color mixture. Before proceeding with this step, ensure that your hands are well protected by wearing the rubber gloves. Follow the instructions that came with the hair color.
Step Three – Once you have followed the preparation instructions for mixing the hair color. Use the dye to coat your hair extensions. Comb through the extensions to ensure that the hair color is evenly distributed and coats all the areas you want dyed. Cover the hair extensions with aluminum foil once you finish applying the dye. Allow the color to set into the hair as noted on the color box.
Step Four – You will now be rinsing excess hair color from the extensions. For faster and complete removal of color, use warm water when rinsing the extensions. Once all the dye has been removed, shampoo the and apply a conditioner. You may want to comb through the extension gently while the conditioner is in the hair to straighten the hair. Allow the conditioner to rest for up to 10 to 15 minutes.
Step Five – Now that your extensions are colored. Rinse the conditioner out of the extensions using cold water. The cool water method will leave your hair shinny as well as seal in the color.
Step Six - Finally, air dry the extension, which will preserve moisture. If you would like you can also blow dry the extensions to speed up the drying process.
