Can I Color 100% Human Remy Hair Extensions?
If at all possible, we do not recommend coloring 100% human hair extensions because we want to maintain the integrity of the hair extensions. However if you must, yes, you can color hair extensions using demi-permanent hair dye. There are hair dyes that are both permanent and demi-permanent in the same tube and you have the option to change developers, these hair dyes are not recommended. Demi-permanent color generally is ammonia free which means there is no ammonia in the tube itself.
Remember when using demi-permanent it means you are only depositing color to the extension. The rules of color do apply. If you are coloring hair more than 2 levels darker a fill maybe recommended. This has to be done with demi too. It is recommended that if you are coloring hair extensions, to choose the hair extensions that are two shades/levels lighter than the color you want to achieve.
Before coloring the extensions completely, it is best to do a strand test to avoid ruining a full set of hair.
Note that it is not possible to lift color or go lighter when coloring 100% human remy hair extensions. It will damage and compromise the quality of the hair.
