I could not find one decent blog with a review of the best dye for virgin Brazilian hair. Brazilian hair is a type of hair extension. Yes, I wear them; no, I am not ashamed.
I tried to dye my bundle a lighter hue to match my hair colour. FYI: I know I am a trend hunter, but this isn’t a new trend. Women have been dyeing their extensions for years. What is new is the number of online stores selling the good. You can find good virgin Brazilian hair at a very good price on aliexpress. I order my hair from Rosa Hair Products. I have no complaints so far.
To be honest, I don’t think I’m getting the real Brazilian or Malaysian hair; but, whatever I’m getting doesn’t shed. I’ve reused my bundles at least twice. I am not complaining.
You can only buy bundles in one colour because it wouldn’t be virgin hair if it was coloured. So, I took it upon myself to dye the hair.
I went to a random drugstore and bought some clairol.
What a nice colour you say. Who doesn’t like salon tones you might add.
As I said, I couldn’t find any reviews and the box did say that it could give any type of hair a reddish-brown tint. I believed it…stupid me.
Let me give you a before an after.
Here’s the before
Here’s the after
Can you tell the difference? NO YOU CAN’T! This dye did absolutely NOTHING. Let me show you a side-by-side comparison!
If you look closely, you will notice that the hair is in fact DARKER than it should have been.
Next time I want to lighten my weave, I will go to Sally’s.
Note: I am not a hairdresser…obvi!
