@BabyJ where did you get your extensions from and im assuming you have dyed them, how did it all work out?
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!

I bought some light blonde extensions, then I put silver shampoo on them and a platinum crazy colour to match my hair, but since doing my roots and them going pretty wrong I'm thinking it'll be simpler if I just stay a light/white blonde than grey if my roots are going to be a ballache. Would bleach bathing my extensions be a stupid stupid idea or if I just do the same as with my hair (coconut oil etc) mean that it's okay? they're 100% human.

they have already been through a lot of processing before you got them, so a bleach bath *may* ruin them, but if you arent gonna be able to use them anyway if you dont then a really gentle one with coconut oil before hand might be okay. Ive bleach bathed mine before like that and gave a them a really long deep conditioning treatment after and they felt fine!

oh ok that's encouraging, thanks :) I might try that soon then. They match at the moment but I was considering letting my hair go back to white instead of maintaining the grey then matching them then.

You also can try soaking them in washing up liquid/head and shoulders overnight ... someone on here did that years ago and it brought them back to their base shade.

Can anyone tell me if these look ok? Don't need to dye them or anything, just as a stopgap while my hair grows back.

I use Lush Hair Extensions (clip ins) as I had a bad reaction to the stitch and bond method of extensions, and they're pricey.

I've found them to be quite good so far, I'm excited to dye them along with my actual hair!

I've tried sooo many different brands of hair extensions over the years and these are by far definitely my favourite;

They are not to badly priced and come in different thicknesses and they last ages :)

Hi,
I am currently thinking of going from a semi dyed black back to brunette, I have used colour b4 on my hair being black previously and it worked, however I was wondering if colour b4 (hair stripper) would also work on hair extensions, They are from crown and glory I have had them a year they are the best extensions I have ever bought hands down if anyone is looking for some, they was 130 but so worth it, 18" you can also get 20" and they are quad wefted so theres four wefts on one if that makes sense making it super thick, if you go on there website look at the tetra weft, this is coming from someone who has used near enough every extension brand you can think of. Anyway back to my main point they are 100% human hair and a hair dresser did say as long as they are human hair I can use colour b4 on them, was wondering if anyone else could give me advice on this if they have done this themselves or know of anyone? xxx

If you bought the hair extension black , then no. You can colour human hair but you can't lighten colours they came in. It can be possible but you run the risk of trashing them. Mine literally started cooking.

In that case, I'd use the remover -  not the stripper. Try a strand test :)

hmmm I have colour b4'd some extensions before, they went the lightest blonde then reoxidised right back to the original colour while I was rinsing them. I'd give it a go for sure as it's cheaper than buying new ones, just be prepared for it not to work and for them to get very very dry! Let us know how you get on of you decide to do it!

my lush extensions came and I dyed them today, but they haven't taken very well :( I'm hoping it's just because I didn't do a very thorough clarifying wash, I'll have to redo them and touch them up :(

Hi girls,
Just thought I would let you know how I got on, as you know in brief, I was too scared to do anything to y hair since it fell out last year through bleach, after a year of using every brand known for hair care and vitamins my hair has restored back to a lush thick bob and dyed it back black because I hated the after math of the colour it went from the bleach, so I bought brown hair extensions a year back from crown and glory which was a tetra weft 18" at 130 grade AAA hair I dyed them black to match my hair. I then decided to go back to my natural brown, so I used colour b4 (No bleach and no amonia) on jet black hair mind on both my hair and my hair extensions. I was crapping yself thinking 1. my hair will fall out again and 2. I feared my hair extensions would mess up meaning I would be 130 down pan. To my surprise it flipping worked wonders and my hair is softer and shiner than it was before I did it , It has gone to a chocolate brown and completely lifted the black out my hair and my hair extensions. I bought 2 poly colours today medium brown because I find they are lovely for the cheap price however I haven't even had to put them on because I really like the colour. I would upload a before and after photo if anyone wants to see the results I am astonished but someone would have to tell me how as I'm new to this lmao xx

Like, they literally had steam coming off them and i had to throw them in the shower without touching the hair. Thats how bad! :O
