I get a lot of questions about my hair color, extensions, and the latest products I’ve been using. So, I compiled a cheat sheet! If you’ve followed my blog or Instagram, you may have noticed I color my hair all the time. But actually, I change up my hair color with extensions (lowlights, some highlighting, etc.). I have been very hesitant to actually color my hair. Because my hair is very fine and thin, I’ve always been paranoid about damaging it. I connected with Sharon of Trademark Salon and she totally understood my concerns. She told me about a Goldwell glaze treatment I could try (think like a hair stain), instead of doing a harsh dye. It also gave me a chance to see if I liked my hair darker. About a month ago, Sharon used the Goldwell Elumen Glaze on my hair. Why wait until now to talk about it? I wanted to wait a full month of the treatment before I shared my opinion. I’m happy to report that I loved my hair then and I am still loving the results now! Below are my before and after.
A huge difference! The glaze made my hair look and feel 100X healthier.
Do you still use extensions?
Yes! I went back to clip ins. I’m currently using Luxy Extensions (I’m not affiliated with them) and like them just as much as my old Bellami’s I used to use. Luxy is a little cheaper too. However, Bellami has more color and length options, so it depends on what you specifically need.
What color Luxy’s did you order?
I got chocolate brown originally, but Sharon colored them darker to match my new hair color. If you’re unsure, use their color match service!
Why did you stop using tape-ins?
I love tape-ins! I go back and forth to let my scalp breathe. It’s nice to be able to not wear weave sometimes, but I think they are a great option.
What products do you use?
What hot tools do you use?
Are hot tools okay for extensions?
I can’t speak for all extensions, but Bellami and Luxy can be styled like normal hair. Wash them, curl them etc. Just keep the heat below 400.
What salon do you go to?
For hair color, I went to Sharon at Trademark Salon (10300 Louetta Rd).
