Dyeing Hair Extensions

I recently dyed my hair 'Dark Chocolate' and then realised I couldn't wear my lovely extensions anymore because they were a completely different colour :( Oh No!!! :/

Because I want to re-dye my hair this colour (LOreal Casting Creme Gloss in Dark Chocolate) again in November for my Formal, I decided that it would be a great idea to dye my extensions as well.

How I did it:

*  Brush through your extensions thoroughly.

*  Prepare hair dye according to instructions (see previous post on dyeing my hair).

*  Layout a large garbage bag and cover with a couple of sheets of aluminium foil.

*  Apply treatment to each extension, making sure to cover all of the hair.

*  Lay out extensions on the aluminium foil sheets and once they are all done, fold the foil over the extensions covering all the hair, fold up the ends of the aluminium package to lock in the heat.

*  Leave the extensions to cure for the allotted time according to the instructions on the hair dye.

*  Rinse with warm water until water runs clear.

*  Apply conditioning treatment and leave on, I actually left the conditioner on for about half an hour (more than recommended) because hair extensions do need more conditioning than normal hair.

*  Rinse out with warm water again and allow to dry.

I was really happy with how my extensions turned out, they still look very natural and are a much better match to my own hair now and as you can see from this photo (I only place one lot of extensions in here just to show you) it's hard to tell the difference in the colours! :)


  1. I'm seriously thinking of getting extensions, my hairs been growing for the past two years, its getting to the length i want, just slowly and i doubt i wont be able to get extensions to match without having to dye :)! Great post!
