DIY Ombre Extensions

I decided to do an update on my DIY Ombre when i got my new hair extensions. I was close to convincing myself to go back to a solid dark hair color for Fall but when it came down to it, i wasn't ready to change the ombre!

As for anyone who has darker natural hair color and want to achieve the ombre affect without damaging your hair with harsh bleaching then i highly recommend trying it on hair extensions! Human hair extensions can be colored, cut, and heat treated like regular hair. But remember to take care of your extensions like your own natural hair to make them last!

What you need:

1. Two Packs of PrismLites BLUE lightener
2. 4 fl. oz. of 20 Volume cream developer (You can use 20 or 30 depending on how light or dark your hair is)
3. Hair color applicator brush
4. Protective gloves
5. Color mixing bowl
6. Aluminum Foil (optional)

What to do:

1. Empty contents of ONE pack of lightener into mixing bowl
2. Combine HALF the contents (2 fl. oz.) of cream developer with powder lightener
3. Mix together until it becomes a thick cream consistency

4. Layout hair extensions on flat surface and brush out tangles (Place towel an foil underneath to keep clean!)
5. Apply first process of lightener to desired length of hair, work lightener in hair thoroughly for even color
6. Leave in for 35-45 min. Check on hair for desired color and rinse thoroughly 

7. After rinsing, towel dry hair and repeat steps for combing developer and lightener
8. Apply second process of lightener to desired length of hair on ends
9. Leave in for 45-60 mins. Check hair for desired color and rinse thoroughly
10. Deep condition ends and length of hair that was bleached!

Nice colors and styles, I love extensions but one thing which I don't like is that extensions need special care.
