Colour matching clients can be a tricky process, at HairPlanet we are always available to offer help and assistance in finding the perfect shade option.
It is important to consider when colour matching, how the perception of colour can be dramatically altered by lighting, filters and monitor settings.

2. No Filters - Filters can drastically change the appearance of a colour making is almost indistinguishable.

This is a question we are asked regularly, however there are numerous factors which can affect the acceleration of colour fading or is some cases a colour change. Firstly, it is crucial to understand that your hair extensions are from a donor and are now added to blend within your natural hair, this does not necessary mean they will behave in exactly the same way as your own. The hair extensions could be a slightly different texture and/or have experienced different colouration processes to your own therefore can behave differently.
These are the most common reasons why your hair could experience a change in colour;
Chlorine - Chlorine content in water will damage hair extensions, causing matting and discolouration, therefore it is advised to avoid underwater swimming. Blonde hair can turn pink/orange and such damage cannot be repaired.
