Adding Dimension while Avoiding Damage
Let's talk about it…
As the seasons change, most of us have an impulse to switch up our hair color. Blonde by the Summer, Red during the Fall, Dark for Winter, and transitional tones during the Spring. I am going to break down how to add dimension to your hair color without bleaching or dyeing your hair (chemical-free color) by using extensions.
Adding color without bleaching or dyeing your hair
Hair extensions can be used for more than just volume and length, they can be used to add highlights, lowlights, balayage, or ombre effect to your current hair color. There is a lot of room for error when bleaching your hair such as: rinsing the hair too soon, damage from leaving it on too long or a fast-fading toner. Using hair extensions to add dimension to your hair removes that room for error and is the fool-proof way to ensure you get the color you desire and expect to achieve.
How to create a multi-tonal effect
Choose one color as your base that matches your own hair, and then a second color you would like to have as your highlight or lowlight. This is how you get the added dimension and multi-tonal effects without the dyes, bleach, or chemicals in traditional color processing. You can achieve these results with DIY (Clip-ins, Halos, Ponytails) and Stylist Method (Tape-ins, Keratins, Wefts) hair extensions. If you are new to hair extensions, I recommend trying a DIY method first. For the ultimate, customizable, detailed blend of color, I recommend a Stylist Method.
Dealing with Damaged Hair
Taking a break from color processing or bleaching your naturally growing hair will allow your hair to rest. If you struggle with chemically-damaged hair, or just dead ends, but are afraid to lose length, don't worry. You can cut off those dead ends and incorporate hair extensions to keep your length while your hair regrows. Don't forget to have fun, since it is commitment-free! Simply pick a look or color for instant dream hair.
