1.1. Can human hair extensions be dyed and bleached?

Human hair extensions: As their name suggests, the human hair extensions are made from 100% women’s hair. It is preposterous to identify that Human hair can not dye and bleach. It is considered to be the most premium quality and brings us natural beauty as well as perfect experience. Therefore, Human hair extensions have quite an expensive price.

In terms of dyeing and bleaching ability, we will need further explanations about the material of human hair extensions. In fact, there are 3 types of human hair now in the market. They are virgin hair, remy hair and non-remy hair. Although these types are all human hair, each type has its own characteristics, which leads to the differences in dyeing and bleaching ability of the extensions.

  • Virgin hair is the most high-quality hair of only one donor. Virgin hair’s cuticle is well kept and its alignment is uniform. This is the most important factor that leads to the amazing dyeing and bleaching ability of virgin hair. With virgin hair, you can easily have it dyed or bleached into different colors, especially the attractive blond one.
  • Remy hair is human hair collected from 2 or more donors. Though the cuticle is quite good and the hair alignment is the same, the differences in the hair textures of different donors make it hard to have remy hair well-bleached. However, the dyeing ability is still amazing. It can be dyed into a wide range of colors.
  • Non-remy hair is unqualified human hair collected from many people. The point is that the hair cuticle is severely damaged and the alignment is not uniform. This makes it almost impossible to get the hair dyed or bleached. Due to this fact, no reliable suppliers supply non-remy hair extensions.

1.2. Can synthetic hair extensions be dyed and bleached?

Synthetic hair extensions: If you intend to dye or bleach synthetic hair, this is bad new that your at-home dye journey can’t be possible because of their structure although Synthetic hair is far more developed than the years before. Their fibers don’t have a cuticle, which is necessary for bleaching and dying. Thus, you have to buy colored synthetic hair from your seller. The synthetic hair is cheaper than Human hair and it has a variety of colors for you to choose. However, the Synthetic colors look unnatural as Human hair as well as a wonderful experience

You may wonder why you can’t get synthetic hair dyed or bleached but sellers can still provide you with colored synthetic hair extensions, right! The point is that the hair dye you usually use and the one hair factories use are totally different. The products you use are only for human hair while the ones hair factories use are literally fiber dye which is not human-friendly at all! You are not recommended to use them without taking careful research beforehand.

To sum up, Synthetic hair is impossible to be dyed at home. Contraryly, if your weave is made from virgin remy Human hair, you can proceed to dye and bleach it now.

2. Where should you buy Human hair to get it dyed and bleached?

The hair market is present by a lot of wholesale hair vendors suppliers which make you confused with choosing the right place to buy the hair you desire. Many customers are scammed and frauded by fake sellers. They sell Synthetic hair with Human hair price and tell customers that they can dye and bleach their hair or sell the hair mixed between Synthetic and human hair. The result is not only you lose your money but also your weave is damaged.
