‘Why have my extensions turned pink/orange/green?’

If you have blonde hair, I’m sure you are aware that your hair can be temperamental when it comes into contact with certain chemicals. This is the same with blonde hair extensions, in fact even more care and attention needs to be given. The colour change can of course happen with all shades of hair, so it is important to be aware of the facts and reasons behind such changes.

Just as you would your hair, extensions need to be protected and cared for carefully to avoid any discolouration. If you find your hair extensions are turning brassy, peachy or pink, this is because something has triggered a chemical process, altering your hair pigmentation.

Pigments found in hair colour is what helps you to achieve your desired shade. The pigments counteract the tones already found in your hair. When dying hair blonde, violet and ash pigments are used to neutralise the warm tones in your hair.

As with all coloured hair, in time the pigments will be lifted through washing and the natural colour pigmentation reappears. Certain things can trigger and accelerate this process, and hair can turn brassier faster than expected. This is why it is so important to use the correct gentle products at all times and closely follow the aftercare provided.

The following can cause discolouration of hair extension pigment:

  • Water mineral content for example Iron = Orange, Cooper = Green
  • Chlorine
  • Sea water
  • Sun/sunbed UV ray exposure
  • Hand Water
  • Argan Oil and Oils
  • Certain aftercare products with strongly pigmented oils and shampoos/conditioners can stain the extensions hair, hence why it is so important to only use the recommended products at all times.
  • Creams i.e. face or body lotion
  • Sweat

Before restoring your hair extensions it’s a good idea to work out the reason for this discolouration in the first place. Doing this will help you avoid it from happening in the future.

It’s important to realise that hair extensions discolouration is not a product fault and is preventable with a little extra care taken in your aftercare routine. Hair extensions are a natural product and will behave like all other natural hair.

Malibu C offers amazing products that are used all over the world for colour correction, there is a wide range of hair care that has been tested and proven to not only maintain the desired colour but also restore unwanted changes.

With the fantastic Malibu C swimmer’s wellness remedy sachets, perfect for maintaining and restoring the effects of swimming in pools or sea water. At Viola we do not recommend extensions coming into contact with swimming pool water if it can be avoided.

Malibu C Hard Water & Blondes Wellness remedy works wonders with hair that has turned pink and orange due to the minerals, such as iron and as well as UV rays.

Viola Hair Extensions offers a range of Malibu C products that have been tried and tested on our hair extensions and shown to not only leave amazing results but help to restore extensions health, shine as well as colour.

Unfortunately, some colour changes can be irreversible in hair extensions depending on the extent of the changes that have taken place.

A silver shampoo/toner may be used under the careful guidance of an experienced colourist. As the hair extensions are more porous than your natural hair, this needs to be watched very carefully as the pigment grabs quickly and results can become undesirable. To restore your extension colour you will need a product that will re-introduce the ashy/violet pigment back into the hair.

Viola Hair Extensions cannot accept any responsibility for any hair that has turned pink/orange, brassy or green. In the Aftercare, it is clearly stated about what to avoid. Extensions are a natural product and the same with our hair may fade over time some shades fast than others.

‘My hair extensions are shedding & breaking’

Reasons why your extensions are shedding maybe due to exposure to heat i.e. straighteners, curlers etc. Another factor is if the bonds have come into contact with high alcohol, oils or sulphates this can cause the bones to disintegrate.
