Before deciding on dying your product, please first find out whether your product is made of synthetic or human hair. This step is crucial because the two products’ distinct natures make their outcomes of dying completely different.
If your product is made from synthetic material, you might have to seriously reconsider before dying the product. In short, synthetic products aren’t made to be dyed. The original color of the synthetic product is dyed onto synthetic fiber during its production process. This dying process is done before the fiber takes shape and the color is therefore spread evenly across the fiber. The process that takes place when you use dying material to dye hair is completely different from the prior. Because the synthetic fiber is already woven in to hair, the dye must undergo certain chemical reactions with the synthetic material to fully integrate with it. Unlike human hair, synthetic material is not susceptible to these changes and hence is hard to dye on. If you do dye your synthetic products, you might find that the resulted color does not match what you’d expected.
For these reasons, we recommend that you don’t dye your product unless doing so is completely necessary. Only dyes with strong oxidizing properties can change the hair’s color for longer durations, but the dying procedures are difficult to carry out and the accompanying chemical reactions are often hazardous (they generate cancerogenic gases). If you still were to decide on dying your synthetic product, please make sure not to use ordinary hair dye but dyes more suitable for this purpose. But again, Rebecca Fashion supplies hair products of various colors and designs. Considering the relatively low prices of synthetic products, we would recommend our customers to purchase products of different styles instead of going through the troubles and dangers that lie in hair-dying.
Because of its intrinsic structure, human hair is much easier to dye on and therefore susceptible to a wider range of dying products. Using non-permanent dying material, you can swiftly change your style by giving it a new, refreshing color. It’s also quite easy to bleach human hair products to return them to their original color whenever you feel like the original hue.
Please follow these instructions to dye your product professionally. It’s important for you not to wash your product or condition it a day before dying. This caution against maintenance before dying is because the cuticles of wet or conditioned hair are closed so particles in dying products cannot easily penetrate the outer layer. Blend the two doses of your selected dying material together as instructed on the dye bottle. Dip your wide-tooth comb or paddle brush in to the mixture to cover it with dye. Divide the products into horizontal layers and comb through the product layer by layer from bottom up and from end to root. Take a dip whenever there isn’t any dye on the brush left. Take care not to apply any dying material to the scalp of your product as doing so may change the scalp’s color and give it an unrealistic look. Please wear old clothes while dying and be careful not to spill any dying product on to your skin.
Rebecca Fashion take the health of our customers very seriously. If you think that you can’t single-handedly finish or might inappropriately handle the above instructions, please visit a barbershop and have professionals help dye your product. You can also save your troubles by checking out other products of different colors at our site! By purchasing products of multiple styles, you can have a perfect match for every possible circumstance!
We treat every Rebecca Fashion product as a baby of ours and we encourage our customers to treat theirs in the same way. To care for and protect your babies, you must first realize that they’re not invincible. In fact, due to the complex nature of the materials your products (synthetic or human) are made of, your products are susceptible to many threats out there. Understanding these characteristics can help you understand what causes harm to your products and how to take precautions against it.
Synthetic hair is composed of fiber formed by polymeric compounds. Though made to mimic the properties of human hair, synthetic hair is in many aspects different from human hair. Synthetic products manufactured by Rebecca Fashion have been through a series of meticulous procedures so that the style and design of the product does not vary over time. Under regular maintenance, your product can look just like the original even after repeated wash and use.
But just like the two sides of a coin, this resiliency means that your product cannot easily be restyled by ordinary means. Because of the nature of these products, they cannot withstand the heat generated by your flat irons or curling wands. We also recommend you not to dye your synthetic product since the effects of ordinary hair dyes on synthetic products often turn out to be unsatisfactory and irreversible.
However, the difficulty of restyling your synthetic hair can be offset by the low price with which you can purchase multiple synthetic products of differing styles. The material used in synthetic products is much cheaper than real human hair and therefore you can have different types of products in your possession to satisfy needs in different circumstances.
That said, if you enjoy designing your own looks, do not like switching between products or want to have a product that last longer, please keep reading and consider our products made of human hair.
Human Hair Products
As said before, human hair products differ from their synthetic counterparts in various ways.
Compared with synthetic products, human hair has a much more sophisticated structure. The component of this structure that our customers should focus on most is the outer layer. This layer is covered by a great many scales (called cuticles), just like those on the skin of a snake. These scales all point from root to end and overlap with each other to cover the inner layer of the hair completely. If the cuticles of your human hair product are properly lined up, they’ll reflect more light and make your product look fresh and shiny. They’ll also help retain the moisture in the inner parts of your product to prevent shedding and breakage.
However, if not protected properly, these cuticles can open up or fall off, leaving the vulnerable insides of the hair susceptible to outside dangers. Styling your product with heat too much will cause the cuticles to dehydrate or become scorched and coarse. Blow-drying your hair too often can cause damage to your product for similar reasons. Exposing your product under direct sun light for extensive hours can also cause harm to your product as the strong UV ray radiated from the sun can seriously impair the cuticles’ protein structure.
Because of the special alignment of hair cuticles, we recommend that you always comb your hair in the direction that they grow (i.e. from root to end). Furthermore, it is best to use a wide-tooth comb or paddle brush (optimally one with metal bristles) instead of an ordinary hair brush. We recommend a wide-tooth comb because it does not cause too much friction between strands of hair and thus minimizes the harm on hair cuticles. We also do not recommend combing your product while it’s still wet since doing so will increase the friction between hair strands (you can try experimenting on how hard it is to comb through wet hair). Applying conditioner on the product, however, will help the cuticles to close up and make the hair smoother and easier to comb. You can find specific instructions on how to properly comb your product on the page labeled "Combing".
After knowing all about the cuticles’ importance in protecting the hair, you still need to understand the distinction between remy and non-remy human hair.
Human hair obtained from individual sellers are mostly disorderly. On the same end of a strip of hair, some hair might be the root part of the original hair and some might be the end part. Products made of disorderly human hair don’t have cuticles that point in the same direction. As mentioned in the section above, combing in the direction opposite to that of the cuticles’ alignment will damage the cuticle layer, leading to tangling, coarseness and other issues. For non-remy hair, these issues can occur no matter which direction you comb the hair since combing either way means combing against the cuticle growth direction of some of the hair. Therefore, for certain products, we apply chemical processes to take off their cuticles. These products do not have much tangling issues but are cheap because of their shorter longevity.
Remy hair products are those made of hair that is arranged in the exact same direction. This type of hair is comparatively rare to get and naturally more expensive. Remy hair products are almost identical to authentic human hair in its smoothness, shine and duration. With the cuticles all lined up in the same direction, remy hair products experience much less shedding or tangling issues than any other type of hair. The cuticles’ protection makes remy hair products easier to maintain and gives them a longer life-span. With these advantages comes a higher price, but who wouldn’t want to let their babies to last longer and always look beautiful as new?

Kinky Curl 4 Bundles Brazilian Remy Human Hair
My hair is one of the best assets that I have. I have kept it long for years because I'm afraid to cut it short since based on experience sporting short hair was never going to be flattering to my round face. I have tried to have it in layers, did have a full or side bangs every now and then; but that is about it.
But as for hair dyeing and all other sorts of chemical and heat treatments, name it I have done it! I’ve gone from black to brown to ash. I had Brazilian blow-outs and rebonding several times too. That's why I am glad my hair hasn't given up on me just yet. I must say though that since it is one of my pride and glory, I always make it a point to take the best care for it.
I've been in the area of tip-toe-ing whether to keep my current hair color though. Sporting an ash blonde hair takes a lot of effort, since it is easier to notice if there's damage there or all these baby hairs springing through my head. I'm thinking of dyeing it in a darker shade. Not like jet black like Cleopatra because it'll be hard for me to dye it in a lighter shade in the future. Good thing there are available options for me to try, like using hair extensions using Brazilian hair that I can use to check if a darker shade would suit me.
I would also love if my hair would have some more volume like the model's hair above. I can't do anything about volumizing my hair because it is already what is. I've tried volumizing products before but to no avail. So probably the only best option is to go for hair bundle with closure instead (like the one pictured below).
I've checked out this site that sells wigs and clip in hair extensions, named Queen Virgin Remy and they have an extensive array of products that I can try for my hair problems or if I want to get pretty experimental with my hair and forget about damaging it even more. They are pretty much one of the best place for if you're looking for hair extensions and the like.
