When coloring your Mrs. Rutter’s Hair Extensions, using permanent hair coloring takes very well to the hair since the hair is virgin hair extensions. To color your hair extensions, start at the ends first and then color your way towards the weft. Make sure to not saturate the weft with color because it is unnecessary. When you begin coloring Mrs. Rutter’s hair, you will notice that the very ends of the hair appear to be just a little bit lighter than the hair as you near the weft and that is because this is real virgin hair that hasn’t been colored! Natural real hair in its natural hair color always appears just slightly lighter on the ends than the rest of the hair because the ends are the oldest parts of hair. After coloring your hair extensions, rinse through the extensions with warm water until the water runs clear or almost clear. Proceed to shampoo wash the extensions and repeat this process until the water runs clear. After you have shampoo washed your bundles of hair, lightly squeeze the excess water from the hair and then apply a rinse condition or deep condition (your choice). After the hair has been conditioned and rinsed with warm water, lightly squeeze the excess water from the extensions and then allow them to air dry. The result will be beautifully colored hair extensions with the wave pattern of the hair will still be in tact!

Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of over 14 haircare books and founder of

For this tutorial I will be teaching you how to color your hair extensions I will be using Mrs. Rutter’s virgin hair extensions from Mrs.

The following supplies you will need to color your hair will be two boxes of permanent hair dye.

You will also need a hair dye brush, a bowl to store your dye, you will need hair cutting scissors a plastic bag and you will also need a pair of gloves.

So once you have all of your materials ready, I will teach you step-by-step how to color your hair extensions.

To begin coloring your hair extensions, you want to make sure that your station is prepped.

Make sure that you take your plastic bag and you put over the area you will be working on so that dye won't get on your table or floor or anything like that.

Then, you want to make sure that you mix your hair dye in your bowl with your dye brush.

Afterwards, you want to unloose your bundle of hair all the way until it's one track.

You have to fold this three times so that way you are not taking up much space with your station.

So when you unravel your bundle of hair as one long track, bring it together and then do that three times.

Once you do that, lay your hair down and then to begin dying, you want to work on the ends and go all the way up until you get to the weft.

Make sure that you don't saturate the weft because it's unnecessary.

when coloring your extensions and also we rinse it you are going to constantly have to rinse the weft over and over again to get all the dye out.

Its completely unnecessary to dye your weft.

So to begin, grab a little bit of hair dye and work your way from the tips to the weft of your bundle of extensions.

After you have completely colored one side, you want to flip it over and repeat the process.

Also as you are working along the way, use the bristles of your brush to slightly open up the hair so they are covering all of the hair with hair dye.

As you are working up near the weft, make sure that you get as close as possible to the weft without actually saturating the weft.

Now if you accidentally get dye on the weft, that is perfectly fine, you just want to open up one side of the weft at a time and cover up the hair leading all the way up to the weft of the actual extension.

After you finish coloring your hair extensions, you want to make sure that it processes for the specific amount of time that your box dye instructed.

This hair needs to process for about 30 minutes to an hour and then it needs to be shampooed and conditioned and air dried to finish the look.

As you can see, this is a finish result of dying the hair extensions the color black.

After dying, you want to make sure to shampoo wash and then allow it to air dry.

As a result, what came from it was a very consistent hair color and also the natural wave pattern of the extensions.

So just to mention once again when you're dying your hair, its very important to only focus your hair color on the hair itself.

If you dye the weft it's unnecessary because for one, no one will ever see the weft of your extensions so they don't have to be colored and the second reason, is because as you are rinsing the dye out you will constantly have to re-rinse re-wash re-rinse re-wash the actual weft when it's unnecessary.

So also, I am actually wearing Mrs. Rutter's hair extensions in my hair and I have had this hair for over a year and I've dyed it the exact same way that I have dyed this bundle.

It holds a hold of curl beautifully as well as hold the color beautifully as well!

so that's it for the how to dye your hair extensions, be sure to visit for your hair extension needs.
