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
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|
