When it comes to ordering dreads online, choosing the color is the first and the most important thing to do. Kanekalon can’t be dyed (with very few exceptions), so the color you pick cannot be changed after you receive the dreads.
My offline customers have a way to match their haircolor with the material directly in the store: it’s as easy as comparing a few strands of kanekalon to your natural color and choosing the one that works best for you. Unfortunately, this isn’t an option for ordering online.
Ever since we started selling dreads and braids online, we’ve been thinking of the easiest way for our customers to choose the color(s) for their sets. With our new color palette this process is easier than ever!
All you need is a picture of your own hair, and a photo/picture editing app or program (even Paint will do!).
First, take a picture of your hair in daylight. It’s important to have no filters applied, no bright direct sunlight and no artificial lighting for this picture, as it may affect the way the color looks on a photo.
Upload the picture to your device and head straight to our color palette right here. There is a clickable link just below the page description if you’d like to download the entire color palette to your device:
Don’t worry, the archive is completely safe to download 🙂
After that, all you need to do is pick the colors you like (or would like to use in your set), and compare them to the picture of your haircolor using the app to see if they match. This method is also great for playing with color combinations and checking how well the colors you picked work together in an ombre or simply next to each other.
If you prefer not to download anything, or if you trust us with matching the colors – just attach the photo(s) of your haircolor to your conversation or the order note, and we’ll happily do it for you! Remember to use the recommendations for taking a photo of your hair that I mentioned earlier.
