Massage your scalp in-between the Hair extensions with your fingertips. Ensure that you rinse all of the shampoo out to prevent residue from building up.

Dyeing Your Hair with Extensions
You can colour your hair with the extensions attached. Dyeing your roots, or running a full semi-permanent colour through the hair is usually fine. The most important rule is we don’t recommend lightening your extensions. If you do decide too your hair extensions will become bit dry and slight tangle, keep hair extensions conditioned. Extra TLC is required with extensions
Tip: If you want to dye your hair while wearing extensions, try to arrange it just before your maintenance is due. Dyeing your hair can often cause hair Tape extension to slip, so you should schedule the colouring in time with maintenance to avoid slippage.
