The expert has been working with hair for over15 years. “Generally, I try to avoid lightening hair all together, but when I absolutely have to do it, I try to only use a 10-volume bleach so that I can preserve the integrity of the hair. Bur 20-volume bleach would be the most excellent max for lightening hair extensions, which I would only recommend. Because high quality hair extensions, like remy human hair, virgin human hair, can be healthier and stronger than a client’s natural hair, and the bleach won’t damage it as much as their natural hair. However, if there is alternative, I still try to avoid it as much as I can, because I always want to keep my client’s hair extensions healthy!” he says.
