The truth of the matter is, there is a pretty low chance that you can find an extension that’s the exact color match as your natural hair, so opt for the next best shade. Hold the hair extensions up against your hair to compare – you might even need to compare two or three bundles at the same time to make the right call.
As much as possible, choose an extension that perfectly complements the style of hair that you’re regularly wearing (this is to keep yourself from over-styling just to match your extensions). If you have or wish to have hair highlights, you should see to it that your hair of choice doesn’t clash with it, or you can simply opt for extensions that complement the color of your highlights.
An article in Yahoo! Voices explains how you could choose extensions based on the texture of your real hair:
“Texture is just as important as color. Even if you pick the right color, your hairstyle will look terrible if you mix curly hair with straight extensions or kinky extensions with silky hair. [â€¦] If you want to try something different from your hair’s normal texture, make sure you can adapt your natural hair to blend in well with the extensions. For instance, if your hair is straight and you want Shirley Temple curls, make sure you can achieve Shirley Temple curls with your real hair before making the purchase.”
If the length of your extensions doesn’t match your real hair, you could end up with choppy, messy-looking locks with short hair showing up just about everywhere you turn. This is why you should check the right length for you first before buying Brazilian hair bundle deals.
