Q: how to dye my hair extensions lighter?
    We advise you NOT to dye them lighter or bleach them.

Most hair extensions (straight, curly or wavy style) have already been through one or several chemical process(es). If you’re set on changing your hair extension several levels lighter than its natural color, then you’ll have to opt for a bleaching treatment to lighten the hair color.
As we all know, any kind of further treatment, especially bleaching process, can lead to a lot of damaging (hair extensions will get damaged faster with bleaching), therefore it is always easier and less damaging to dye your hair extensions from lighter to darker, than from darker to lighter.

☑ buy a natural color hair weave bundles that havent been processed by the factory. Then you can dye them into any color you like.
☑ simply order a set of hair extensions that are lighter at store. Shopping online will give you more style and color options, as well as a cheaper price.
