Another thread about my own hair, sorry. I'm about to purchase Russian extensions from Transform, mainly to thicken my own hair up. I don't want long hair or anything. My own hair is around a 5, some might say a 4. It's pretty toneless. Next week i'll be colouring my own hair with a L'Oreal cool cover, probably a level 8. I want it to be very ashy and still quite dark. Will the Russian hair colour evenly? Sometimes it's hard for colour to penetrate the hair due to how it's treated, but will Russian hair be better for this? Is Transforms Russian hair even real Russian hair? I've attached 2 images take from Transforms Facebook colour chart, these are the colours close to my own colour. I don't know the first thing about extensions so hopefully someone experienced can make sense of what i'm asking. Should I choose a colour lighter than what I want so I can darken it?
