Harsh chemicals can damage your human hair extensions beyond repair. Strong chemicals strip and damage your natural hair. Remy human hair weaves have the cuticle layer intact, and this outer layer of the strand gives the hair natural shine and body. Do not use chemical dyes that are too strong for the hair. Or, it will make your hair extensions weak, dull and brittle.

You must first strip the hair of its natural color if you want to dye black extensions to blonde or light brown color. Next, bleach the hair to the desired shade. Try several times to get the best color. To avoid ending up with a head full of orange hair, you should do a strand test.
