So grab a glass of red wine and if you are a platinum blonde we have a great hack for you!
Your New Platinum Blonde Hair Extensions Were Just Delivered....
You ordered your new clip in extensions. You can't wait until they arrive. Finally they are here and you open the package. Your heart sinks...they are light YELLOW!!! Though they may be Platinum blonde clip in hair, they have a slight yellow color that is glaring back at you! What do you do? No problem, grab a bottle of your favorite red wine and relax. Relax you say? How can a girl relax when she just received her new prized human hair extensions and they are YELLOW! Here's how you can get rid of the yellow naturally, and it's 100% non-damaging to your remy clip in hair extensions.
How to tone the yellow naturally
Bowl big enough to hold your entire clip on hair extension set
2 bottles of red wine (We are extremely classy and used, "Crane Lake" Red Blend, from Sprouts - $3.99 ea) You can find it at most stores.
1 small TEST SAMPLE piece from your remy clip in hair set - (a 1" weft piece)
1 sink, bathtub, or bucket filled with clean water to rinse the clip in hair out quickly
TEST THE SAMPLE PIECE FIRST BEFORE STAINING THE ENTIRE SET!!!!
Take one clip in hair test sample piece of your new slightly YELLOW human hair extensions.
Fill a bowl with 1 cup of red wine.
Take the remy hair test piece and thoroughly wet it in the wine, making sure all of the hair is wet.
Do not soak the hair, just wet it and rinse it in clear cold water until all of the red wine comes out.
Air dry the clip in hair - DO NOT WASH you will do this later.
When your clip in hair is dry, check the hair color to see if enough of the brassy yellow has been removed, if not stain the hair extensions again by repeating steps above.
We have only tried this with REMY CLIPS quality, 100% HUMAN hair extensions. We do not claim this will work on other brands. Do a test sample first no matter what clip in or halo hair you use before staining the entire set. Once the hair is stained there is no going back! This will not work on synthetic man made fibers.
If you soak the extension hair too long, it may leave a gray cast to the hair. If this is the color you are looking for then cheers! If not, and you only want to remove a slight bit of yellow to make your clip in extensions look more ash or white, then leave the hair in the wine only long enough to wet the hair to "stain it"and then remove it and rinse it clean immediately.
Once you have tested the sample and you are happy with the color, fill the bowl with the rest of the wine. Take one clip in hair piece at a time of your extension set and thoroughly wet each piece the wine. Make sure the hair is thoroughly wet (all the strands are wet). It is too difficult to go back and stain a missed spot. This may lead to uneven color. Once the hair is wet, remove it from the wine and rinse until the water is clear. Air dry, and if you are happy with the color, gently wash the hair with your favorite shampoo, and condition it.
You might have to re-stain your clip in human hair extensions after repeated washings if the stain begins to fade. This non-chemical, all natural method will prolong the life of your remy human hair. This is just another way to protect your investment, make your extensions last longer, and allow your hair extension dollars to go further!
