The Truth about Blonde Hair Extensions’ Maintenance - Tape & Weft Extensions

Do you have blonde hair that requires weekly or monthly toning, bleaching or purple shampoo? If you like to keep on top of your own blonde hair colour, and considering buying Tape or Weft Extensions, or if this your first time buying Semi-Permanent or Temporary Blonde Hair Extensions — then this is the perfect blog for you! 

Find out our guideline below for the life longevity of your Blonde Hair Extensions and your own blonde natural hair.


If you’ve read this far, it’s most likely because you spend a great deal of time, money (or both!) maintaining your blonde locks, and wondering if Hair Extensions are worth it for you. The short answer is yes! Hair Extensions’ come is many different methods, lengths and thicknesses to achieve anyone’s hair goals. You just want to make sure you are buying the right one for you! 

Unlike your Kiki Hair Extensions, most clients with blonde hair usually requires high maintenance like toning , bleaching and protein products for the repair, treatment and blonde tone/s in your hair. If this is your first time buying hair extensions, we at Kiki recommend looking at starting with temporary extensions like Clip Ins or Halo, unless you’re happy to go the extra mile for your blonde hair.

The number one reason being is Semi-Permanent Human Hair Extensions require high daily, weekly and monthly maintenance - including avoiding all products that contain protein in the ingredients. Protein can and will as cause irreversible damage to your extensions. Protein sucks the life, hydration and moisture from the hair, and without your extensions attached to your scalp and producing natural oils, you will cause irreversible damage

Daily brushing and adding of hydration and moisture like leave-in-end-creams, are recommended to assist with your blonde hair extensions feeling soft, silky and smooth always. 

Your Tape or Weft Extensions for your blonde hair, requires maintenance appointments every 4-6 weeks depending on;

A. How quickly your natural hair grows

B. How quickly your blonde fades from your natural hair 

On your move up appointment, once your Remy Human Hair Extensions have been removed, this is the perfect time to have your colour services completed + add a treatment + protein into your natural hair (if that is what your blonde hair requires). 

Toners , purple shampoos and protein damages your extensions so you will need to ensure you do this separately for the long-lasting life of your extensions. Your Blonde Extensions will not change colour and their should be no need to use any toners or purple shampoos directly on your extensions. If you do proceed to tone , please follow our guide below

  • Avoid purple shampooing and toning your extensions to avoid any drying, tangling, shedding or matting - especially directly onto the extensions with no water dilution. 
  • Visit your Trusted Salon for your natural hairs blonde colouring , toning and purple shampooing - this helps to avoid at home toning issues. We do have local Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Perth recommendations for all your salon needs.
  • If you do tone your hair at home, please avoid your shampoo & toners directly onto your hair extensions. Try to seperate your natural hair from your extensions when you apply these products. 

Clips and Halos are a great alternative for blonde hair with less maintenance as you easily apply and remove them each day.

Halos are the most popular , damage free , quick and easy method to apply-  especially for clients with fine/ thin hair. We do recommend taking your Clips or Halo into your salon for a style blend / cut in for a seamless blend.
