Here's a list of things I needed for the process:
- Hair dye of choice. I used Sparks Color in Purple Passion, which I mix with conditioner to achieve the desired color. If you use hair dye with developer, I'd suggest mixing according to the instructions provided.
- Mixing bowl
- Tint brush
- Fine toothed comb (not pictured but very important!)
- Dark colored towel

Let It Sit
Wash It Out
Because this isn't hair from your head (and won't grow back), I always take extra precautions when washing the color out. Make sure to use cold water to keep the color locked in. Once you've done a clean rinse, take a weft and lightly shampoo, wash, and deep condition it. Then set it aside to absorb the conditioner. Continue this process with each weft. Once they're all done, start washing the conditioner off of each one.
Let It Dry
I highly recommend letting your extensions dry naturally. I'll take another dark towel and gently squeeze (not rub) the hair as dry as I can. I'll then take a skirt hanger and clip the wefts to hang dry. Once they've dried completely, I'll style them to my heart's desire!
I'd like to note that since I've composed this post I've changed my hair color (and my hair extensions) to dark brown. I basically repeated the exact process and they turned out lovely! While I don't recommend dyeing your extensions frequently, I was quite impressed with how resilient they are.
