Dying my luxy hair extensions

Hello Beauties<3


So if you follow me on twitter (@BEAUTYCJANINE ) then you may have seen me tweet that my boyfriend got me luxy hair extensions (160g set) for Christmas. I was super happy because my old extensions were fried and not useable! I told him long before that i wanted luxy hair extensions and i was going to purchases them in Dark brown, so that is what color he got me, but my hair is super dark brown and may look like a soft black in pictures but its still brown, so i bought my favorite box dye of the moment and here is how they turned out.





The lighting in the bathroom is off, but this is dark brown *Before*

What i used;

Loreal sublime mousse in #30 Pure Darkest brown
Latex gloves
hair salon hair dye bowl *from sallys*
Macadamia deep repair hair mask
KQC thermal heat protectant


I then just pumped out the mouse into my hand and lathered each extension weft -- and there is more than enough dying product to finish all wefts. once i finished all wefts i then put them into the bowl and let them sit for 50 minutes. It says on the box 35 minutes but since its a box dye i have noticed extra time is needed! 

Once 50 minutes passed i rinsed them with luke warm water until the water became clear and then used my macadamia deep repair mask to condition them (left for 7 minutes). -- i used the macadamia deep repair mask because extensions need a lot of moisture and care to keep them healthy and since i was dying them which will dry them out even more i felt a deep condition was necessary.


I then towel dried them and layed them out on a towel and combed through them so there were no knots.*Using a comb is less harsh them a brush* and i sprayed each weft with heat protectant.

I let them dry over night and straightened them in the morning! This next picture is what they look like after.

They now match my hair perfectly

Thank you for reading <3

  1. Human hair extensions special care, like you can not wash them with normal shampoo, you can not dry them etc...

    Buy human hair extensions

  2. I had a terrible experience with these extensions. They are from terrible quality! They shed, they fall out very quickly and after a month it looks like I'm wearing straw on my head instead of hair.
    And it doesn't even look natural, because there isn't enough hair in one weft to make it look like it's your hair and not fake.
    There are allot of plastic strands between the "real" ones and if you start straightening them or curling them they burn. I'm just so pissed right now that I spent 160 dollars on this crappy set. I really don't recommend buying from them, there are other extensions out there that are 1000x better!!

    1. I haven't had to much of a problem with Luxy Hair Extensions until my last pair, where I had many of the problems you listed. What better extensions do you recommend because I haven't found much that are better (only clip-ins)??
