Okay, so I got some blonde 18 inch extensions.. cuz right now, my hair is white to red LOL.. so I found a colour, which I'll post later..It's a light light brown.. I guess a honey colour. I got my extensions at sally's beauty supply (it's a place made of love for losers like me) So.. they were 35 bucks.. and I got glues.. so I pretty much bought the glue with all quarters, cuz I am poor like that.. the glue was about 4 dollars... anyway..

NOW ON TO THE DYEING PART!!

I placed the weft on the table and cut the pieces to the width I wanted, cuz the weft came in a long string of hair.. anyway, so I made the first length long enough to go from behind my ear, down to almost my neck, and back up to the other ear. Then I made the rest the same length.

next I laid the first length on some foil, enough to cover the table where the hair wasnt touching. I got my pretty color, mixed the stuff, and started working the color throough the hair evenly, but I almost ran out, so not too much.. (has no clue how to explain how much) I spread it out with my fingers (covered with gloves from the kit) and let the hair sit till i was done, the last weft sat for 30 minutes..

then i rinsed them off, you gotta do this REALLY well, cuz that soapy feel doesnt go away. Next I ilaid them out and soaked up most of the water with a paper towel. the top of the wefts felt wet no matter what.. i the bllow dryed them on the COOL setting, never pput it on hot, I'm afraid they will get frizzy..thats it, I combed through them, and straightened them

THESE WERE 100% HUMAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

NEVER STRAIGHTEN, BLOWDRY OR COLOUR SYNTHETIC EXTENSIONS OR WIGS THEY WILL MELT FRIZZ AND THE COLOR WILL NOT STAY

Ahh...Hair extensions are the best!! I've had them all from synthetic to 100% human hair. I've straighten and curled synthetic hair you just have to do it on the lowest setting and be extremely patient.The Human hair I had was fused and was the most annoying disgusting thing to wash and was the most painful thing to take out without a bottle of Advil at hand =/ but it did look really good for the 2 years I had them (I switched them a lot they started to dread.)

Now that my hair is healed I think I'm going to go out and buy some extensions too... But I think I'll stay with clip ins. You are brave!! Post some pictures! I would love to see how it turned out
