‘Why have my extensions turned pink/orange/green?’
Blonde hair extensions are like a sponge especially newly purchased hair and this is due to the chemical process of lightening to obtain the light blonde colour. To avoid discolouration such as pink/orange, brassy or green. You must not allow the following to come into contact with hair extensions;
- Sun cream
- Face cream
- Tanning lotion
- Oils e.g. Argan (recommended only for brunettes)
- Do not allow for the tips of the extensions to touch the face, shoulders or back where any of the above has been applied.
- Excessive heat
- Hot water can cause the hair to fade we recommend washing hair in warm water
UV Rays all hair can be affected by the sun, extensions can be even more susceptible. We advise wearing hair up and covering when spending long periods in the sun, hot weather or swimming.
- Chlorine can turn the hair green.
While thousands of customers will go away on holiday with no problems at all there may be the odd unlucky one that may have a problem with their blonde hair extensions changing colour. Most blondes return from holiday even blonder than before.
The following may help to restore any discolouration
Please first test on a few strands. Soak the affected hair for approximately 30 minutes in 1- part apple cider vinegar 3 parts water, wash the hair straight after with purple shampoo. A visit to the hairdressers to have a toner applied too may help should the brassy colour be too stubborn to remove. Unfortunately, the colour changes can be irreversible.
Another possible thing to try is lemon juice a customer said this worked for her recently, she used the squeezy lemon juice bottle on the tips always try a test strand first.
We cannot accept any responsibility for any hair that has turned pink/orange, brassy or green. Your Extensionist should have advised you at the time of fitting the risks as detailed above.
