Hair extensions have been in vogue for ages,and many women appreciate how easy it is to change their look using them. You can either purchase synthetic hair extensions or human hair.Synthetic extensions are either made of nylon or polyester fibers,while human hair extensions are made of pure human hair and are usually free from any artificial coloring and styling when purchased. Synthetic hair extensions may cost less,but they are not as versatile as human hair.
As mentioned above,versatility is the biggest benefit that Brazilian hair extensions offers over the synthetic ones.For example,did you know that you cannot color or dye synthetic hair extensions?Brazilian hair extensions,on the other hand can be styled and dyed the same way you would your own natural hair.You also have the freedom to use a variety of styling tools and techniques such as curling irons and flat irons.This added versatility to style Brazilian hair extensions and add virtually any color more than makes up for the higher price and makes it a worthwhile investment!

3.Once the hair color mixture is ready,you can now use the dye to coat your Brazilian hair extensions.Comb through the extensions to ensure that the hair color is evenly distributed and coats all the areas you want dyed.Cover the hair extensions with aluminum foil once you finish applying the dye.Let the color set into the hair for the some time as specified on the color box.
4.This step involves rinsing excess hair color from the extensions.To ensure faster and more thorough removal of color,use warm water when rinsing the extensions.After all the dye is gone, shampoo the extensions and apply a conditioner.You can comb through the extension gently after applying the conditioner to straighten the hair.
