Weekly Trend: Colored Extensions

Bella Bethesda Expert: Rebecca

Hair extensions are a great way to add a pop of unexpected color to your style without damaging your natural hair. Also, extensions eliminate any worry of color fading. This eye-popping look has been sported by fashion risk-takers like Katy Perry and Britney Spears, and can be easily modified to create chunks of color or more subtle highlights. All natural hair extensions come in every color imaginable from neon pink, to blonde, to mint green. The extensions are applied using a synthetic keratin that does not damage your hair! Rebecca is Bella Bethesda's hair extension guru and recommends that you consult with her to help you determine which extensions are best for you.
It is important to keep the following tips in mind when caring for your hair extensions:
  • The benefit of having all natural hair extensions is that you are able to use curling and straightening irons directly on the extensions.
  • Finishing products such as hairspray and gel are permitted.
  • Do not try to use hair color on hair extensions. The dye that the extensions have been treated with will create inaccurate results.
  • Never go to bed with damp hair. Brush your hair twice a day and tie back your hair before going to bed to keep it from tangling.
  • Salt and chlorinated water is very drying and can cause your hair extensions to discolor, so wear a swim cap or avoid swimming if possible.
