Bleaching black 100% human tape in extensions.by AmaranthRosePosted 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Hi, I have some 30" long black 100% human hair extensions I want to bleach as blond as I get it so I can color them whatever I want. My question is what's the best method and product to lift it to a lighter blond? I was looking at Manic Panic "Amplified" with the 40 vol. peroxide. I would buy light blond pieces, but 30" long tape in extensions are hard to find.

I'd try a small section first, because, depending on how they are processed, some human hair extensions can't really hold up to bleaching. For my black hair, I need two processes of 30 and 20 volume peroxide to get to platinum blonde, which might be too harsh for extensions. You really need to keep them flat and straight while drying so that the weight doesn't cause them to snap. I personally have liked Matrix Light Master, Schwarzkopf BlondMe, or Ion Bright White Creme Lightener. Schwarzkopf Vario, L'oreal Platinum, and Wella Blondor Creme Lightener have also been recommended before as good relatively strong bleaches.
