Caramel highlights of een balayage met karamelkleuren, wie houdt er niet van? Trendsetter Kate Middleton zwichtte onlangs voor deze haarkleur en ze kreeg er meteen een nog warmere uitstraling door.

How to blend clip in extensions with short hair | 3 easy tricks

  17-10-2019     Kommentare (0)

With the help of extensions you can turn short hair into a beautiful princess haircut in no time. Nothing stops you from occasionally exchanging your bob hairstyle for long curls or a casual fishtail braid. But those short tufts that occasionally come squeaking through that long hair, what do you do with that? With these 3 tricks you can hide short picking so that nobody will see that you are wearing extensions.

extensions with short hair

The first and easiest way to avoid short tufts is to secure the bottom layer of your hair in braids and to secure those braids with bobbypins. Then you attach your clip in extensions. Leave enough hair on top of course to be able to hide the extensions properly.

Another trick is to first place the clip in extensions in your hair and then pick out the short tufts. If you put this braid and then under the rest of your hair with a bobbypin you will not see it anymore. In the video below you can see that this is a very good solution for eliminating shorter tufts.

It goes without saying that short tufts are more noticeable in blond hair than in dark hair and that by curling your hair and your extensions you can ensure that everything blends nicely together. But you really can't ignore it, the real trick for blending your extensions perfectly is layered. With layers in your extensions you soften the hard transition between your own hair and your extensions. This is how your extensions look completely natural, even with straight hair.

You can have your extensions cut at the hairdresser's, but you can also get started yourself. This video perfectly explains how you can cut your extensions yourself in layers. The result is really amazing.

Hopefully you got something out of these tips. Do you have a tip yourself? Then certainly leave it in the comments.


Hair color not equal? Then your hair is too porous. This is how you fix it!

hair color not equal

After dyeing your hair it can happen that your hair color is not equal. This can have various causes. For example, you may have forgotten to paint certain parts of your hair or perhaps your hair color was not completely even before coloring. Scraps of wax or other oil-containing products can also seriously kill your hair color. But there is something else that can cause your hair color to be uneven: too high a porosity.

You can recognize porous hair because it feels rough and dries quickly after you have washed it. That is because the hair scales remain open continuously, so that the hair absorbs everything: water, conditioner and hair dye. But because the hair scales remain open, the moisture present (or the hair color present) is quickly lost again.

Porous hair absorbs hair dye so that the color will often be more present in the dry parts than in the rest of your hair. Often the tips are the most porous but with people with curly hair, almost the entire hair can suffer from a too high porosity. Those who care for the hair via the Curly Girl method know that highly porous hair needs protein to make it manageable. We can also use the same proteins to obtain a uniform hair color.

What we need to achieve an even hair color is a porosity equalizer. This is a filler that saturates the porous parts of the hair with proteins so that the color is uniformly absorbed everywhere, resulting in an even hair color. Porosity equalizers are not really known here, but in America you can buy these products in any drugstore. We have very good experiences with the porosity equalizer from Joico, the Liquid Protein Chemical Perfector. You apply this spray to towel-dried hair before applying the paint. Let this soak in for 20 minutes and then paint your hair as usual.

Porous hair also ensures that your new hair color disappears faster, which is why there are after color treatments such as the Wella Color Save Emulsion. You use this product immediately after coloring after you have rinsed the paint with water from your hair. It is therefore used instead of a shampoo because with shampoo you were actually the newly applied color largely gone again. Pre-treatment in the form of a porosity equalizer and a post-treatment are therefore essential for a perfect color that you perform at home.

Green hair after swimming? 😱 3 tips to fix it yourself 👌

  24-08-2019     Kommentare (0)

Help, my hair is green!

green hair after swimming

With the warm days behind us, we naturally started to cool off in the swimming pool. But in addition to the fact that pool water can make your hair porous, it can also give your hair a green appearance. Not only with blond hair, brunettes can also suffer from it. We are happy to share some tips to remove that green appearance quickly and easily at home.


How do you remove green? Simple, by applying red over it. Red stands opposite green on the color rose. With ketchup you correct the green undertones and this trick is sometimes used in the salon. Yet it is not a good idea to apply ketchup to blond hair because then you can actually get a pink glow from it. For brown hair with a green glow it is a great solution. 


This works fine with blond hair: let 2 aspirin effervescent tablets dissolve in a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your hair with it. Let it soak in and then wash your hair as usual.

Beige toner

If you want to get rid of the green glow for a long time, even when you go swimming again, choose a beige toner and avoid ash colors. Wella T15 Pale Beige Blonde is a toner that gives your hair a neutral beige blonde hair color that lasts 8-10 weeks in 30 minutes.

Wella T18 Review | Wella Color Charm T18 against yellow undertones

  26-08-2018     Kommentare (0)

For those who want to go from brown hair to blond, a purple toner is indispensable. It removes the excess warm, yellow glow from your hair and the result lasts a long time. When you search online for purple toners you will find Wella Color Charm T18 everywhere. Are you curious about the effect of this toner on platinum blonde, medium blonde and golden blonde hair, then read this Wella T18 review quickly.

wella t18 review

To be able to show the result of the Wella T18 toner on different hair colors, we have chosen hair extensions in 4 different colors for testing. Although the T18 is a purple toner that neutralizes yellow hair and performs best on hair that has been discolored to level 9 or 10, you will see that slightly darker blond hair also gets a cooler, more ash blonde color.

From left to right we see extensions in the color Platinum blonde (# 60), Blond / brown mix (# 18/613), Medium blonde (# 22) and Golden blonde (# 27).

wella t18 review

To tone your hair you need:

A bottle of Wella T18 toner contains 42 ml, suppose you use the entire bottle then you need 84 ml of hydrogen peroxide. Do you use 2 bottles of toner or do you want to mix with other toners or add an additive such as Wella Color Charm 050, then you also need more the developer.

We place the extensions on a dark towel and paint them from top to bottom using the paintbrush. You will soon see your hair discolor, first a bit of a brown-gray color and then more and more dark purple. Allow the toner to work in for 30 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Use Wella Color Save Emulsion instead of shampoo to close the color pigments in the hair and keep the color longer.

wella t18 review

After rinsing the toner and allowing the extensions to dry, this is the result. You can see that the platinum blonde extesions have been given the promised ash blonde color and that all heat has disappeared from the hair. The blond / brown mix still has the lighter highlights, but both the light blonde and the light brown now have a cooler undertone.

The mid-blonde extensions are now much less yellow and have more of an ash-blonde color. Only with golden blonde we hardly see a difference, for this color you need a blue toner like Wella Color Charm t14 because blue neutralizes orange.

And then there are 6 other Wella toners to choose from, from beige to silver.

Have you ever tried a toner?
