From Brunette to Blonde With Hair Extensions

Blonde or Brunette? Oh, how I love thee both!


Recently, while I was handling a set of beautiful platinum extension hair, my little guys says, "Mom, I think you should have hair like that again."


This started me thinking.


I had been blonde (and had long blonde hair extensions) when he was born 8 years prior so I imagined his little dependent baby self was used to seeing those blonde tresses fall all around his milk station. And then later as he grew and went off to school, he was accustomed to identifying his mother at pick up time as the bright blonde haired lady in the sea of people.

Now I had brunette hair and brunette hair extensions. A deep, dark brunette color which gave me a completely different look and I wondered, now, about changing it back to blonde. I wondered how hard it would be and if it were even possible. 


Is a Color Change a Good Idea For Me?


I recall stories of others who try extreme changes like this and ending up with green hair! This was not a result I wanted and, it came to be, if I just waited out this urge, I wouldn't make a drastic mistake by trying to bleach out my already processed and colored hair.


Can I Change My Hair Color Without Using Chemicals?


Were there other options for my color change other than chemicals? What about the hair extensions? Could I change my hair just using the extensions and not bleaching or processing it?


There have been so many daring new looks with hair color these days. You have the ombré which begins with a deeper, darker color at the root and finishes with a lighter shade at the ends. This can be anywhere from 2 to 7 shades lighter and looks really great when it's done correctly.

My own hair would need to jump 9 whole shades to make it from the dark root color to the lightest blonde on the ends of my hair. I would need a couple in-between shades to make the transition from dark at the root to light on the ends. To decide on this look, I googled to see what pictures I can come up with.


Nothing gets me really excited to do this so I think I'll wait it out a bit and if it keeps coming to mind, I know it's a change I am supposed to make. If I forget about it, then I probably saved myself from making a huge costly mistake with my hair and my hair extensions.

Hair Extensions I Can Afford To Wear

How Much I Saved With DIY Hair Extensions

 

This is unbelievable. I've done the math and decided I've saved over $15,000 by applying my own hair extensions the last 5 years. Wonderful!


hair-long

The costs of hair extensions (many times averaging $1500-3000 per installation) usually make it a pretty exclusive service for the rich and famous, which is probably why hair extensions are not yet more commonplace (for example in the heads of all of us with limp, slow-growing hair) but I know this is changing due to more affordable methods to wear hair extensions and to great innovations for applying salon style hair extensions at home like ManeMaxx.


Before I developed  this product I use to apply my own hair extensions, I paid around $800 every 3 months for my pinch braid hair extensions. This included hair and the service of braiding the small bundles of extension hair into my own hair at that base, or root, of my hair.


Spending Verses Savings for Hair Extensions


So, a new hair extension installation every 3 months, the typical limit for the strand-by-strand pinch braid extensions, at $800 per application. (Others, paying far more for their hair extension service, can likely save double, or more, than I have.)


$800 x 4 times per year = $3,200


The 5 years of applying my own hair extensions has allowed me to experiment with different hair colors, lengths and make style changes with the hair extensions more cheaply than if I had to go to the salon to make these changes to my hair. This further became a benefit to me and helped me save even more since changing a hair color and style with the extensions requires even more costly salon appointments.


So, after 5 years with just the hair extension installations:


$3,200 x 5 years = $16,000

That's $16,000 (minus about the couple thousand I may have spent in my own supplies through the years) I didn't have to earn to spend on my hair! That's more free time with my family, my passions, business, even just hobbies because I'm not working more to earn that extra money. (Actually, I love little all-inclusive vacations here and there and can arrange them for about $2200 per week. Using this math, I save amount to the money it would take to fund 5 vacations, at least 1 per year. And I didn't even have to give up my hair extensions to get it! So, I can still vacation with my long, beautiful, super full hair!


Hair Extensions I Can Afford


Do you think hair extensions, just for the rich and famous? No more, baby!


Hair extensions are a huge part of my own life and I've made it so wearing them regularly has worked well into my budget. Just a little bit of time and patience and learning (and imagine the time and patience I had to have creating a new hair extension method!) and I was saving a ton on applying and wearing my own hair extensions. Everyday can be a great hair day!

Does Wearing Fake Hair Make You Fake?

Am I Fake Because I Wear Hair Extensions?


Umm. No. Never.


Wearing hair extensions is just a way to get some enhancement to your own look on the "outside", help you feel better and more confident and says nothing about who you are as a person.


Far away is the thought hair extensions are just for celebrities and entertainers. As fashion conscious people who just want to look better each day, we are all looking for ways to accomplish this. Hair extensions do that for those of us with thinner, flatter, broken, maybe over processed hair of our own. Hair extensions make it possible to have better-looking hair, period. There is no fake involved. Just like using lotion to nourish and moisturize skin to help it look better, more youthful and healthy, hair extensions allow us to over-all look better, more youthful and healthy.

The Safest Hair Extensions for Thin Hair

Do You Hate Your Thin Hair?


Are you searching for the safest hair extension method for your thin hair? Many hair extension methods and products are simply just not safe for the very hair type that could benefit the most. Thin hair, limp hair, damaged and broken hair all cry out for some volume and hair extensions are the fastest, easiest, best way to get fuller, thicker hair. The problem is, there are hair extension products which may only exasperate the problems thin, limp or broken hair have.

Hair Extension Options for Thin Hair


For the do-it-yourselfer, the options are few. Clip-in hair extensions which amount to heavy weft of hair held on small metal clips are attached where they can remain unseen, typically in the very back of the head, underneath as much hair as possible so the clips don't show through the hair and the hair extensions become embarrassingly visible.


The beauty supply store offers a few options, links and rings and pre-bonded  extension hair, a child of the parent "fusion" hair extension technique which involves manipulating a hot press gun to melt the glue into the hair or, in the case of the link hair extensions, a small metal plier to crimp the small metal tube around the hairs, creating a pressed, flat metal attachment. But, you don't really want glues and metals in your hair, do you?

The Best Hair Extensions for Thin Hair


There is another option. This is a hair extension product and technique much gentler, easier to handle for the do-it-yourselfer with thin, limp hair or chemically processed, damaged and broken hair. It is called soft bonds and it's the product you get when using the ManeMaxx® hair extension kit to apply your hair extensions yourself.


The hair extension product, TemBond®, is a natural and non-toxic hair extension product which is warmed in a pot. Small bundles of loose extension hairs are dipped, fondue style, into the warmed TemBond®. The bundle is then placed on the hairs and the attachment is created as the bond secures the extension hairs to the natural hairs.
