DIY: Ombre Hair Using Virgin Brazilian Hair Extensions

This post is long overdue.. (understatement of the year :P)

My Inspirations:

What I used:
Vol. 20 developer
Garnier Belle Color  (73 Dark Golden Blonde)
Lifting the color of Virgin Hair was way harder than I thought... you need a lot of patience if you do not use bleach. I think it took so long because I used a vol 20 developer. If you want to speed up the process use a vol 30 or vol 40 developer.
The quality of the hair was not affected by the dye. I made sure i deep conditioned the hair after to prevent dryness. I am happy I finally did it after months of procrastination. The only thing i wish is that the tips were a little lighter so I may attempt to make the tips a little lighter.. blonder. I am ready to move on to my next hair so I'm not sure that is going to happen.

Have a wonderful week :)


  1. hey i just stumbled upon this and i was wondering can this be done without using the developer because i want to ombre my natural hair and i don't want to damage it. thanks and it looks really nice on you.

    1. I would say to be very cautious and get it professionally done. My ombre has 3 shade gradation. black, light brown then blond. ..
      I had mine done by my stylist and could not be happier!!

  2. Hi did you leave the dye on your hair longer than the recommanded time because od your dark hair?
