Bleaching hair extensions to achieve a lighter color can be cheaper and easier to do at home. If done properly your extensions can be lightened without extensive damage. WARNING: Do not attempt to dye synthetic extensions. Only human hair extensions can be dyed or bleached with conventional products.


  1. Begin with clean extensions free of hair product buildup. Place them on individual sheets of tinfoil.
  2. Buy a bleach kit. These can be purchased from many places.
  3. Mix the powder and the liquid and follow the directions in your kit.
  4. Put on your gloves and massage the mixture into the extensions starting from the top. Use circular motions and move towards the ends. Fully saturate the extensions.
  5. Fold the foil over the extensions so that no bleach spills out.
  6. Check on them every ten minutes until they are a lemon yellow color or an hour has passed.
  7. Wash them with a PH balancing shampoo to neutralize the chemicals. Make sure to use a deep conditioning treatment such as olive or coconut oil and leave it on overnight.
  8. If they are not blonde enough, another bleaching may be necessary. Be sure to check every 5 minutes to make sure they are not being over processed.
  9. Lastly, eliminate any brassy tones with a toner.


  • If you don't have a deep conditioner, saturating them in conditioner overnight might be a cheaper alternative.
  • Try to avoid the metal clips when adding the bleach
  • Be careful not to get bleach on your skin. If this occurs, rinse thoroughly.
  • Extensions may need to be trimmed after, the ends may become damaged.
  • It's best to bleach extensions that are not in bad condition.


  • Bleach in a well ventilated area.
  • Hair bleach is a damaging process. Your extensions may become more coarse.
  • In some cases it may be better just to buy blonde extensions.
