There are many different colors of human hair weaves. like #1B color, #2 color, natural color, or ombre human hair weave. All of the colors are ranging from black to blonde and even reds. Many people find that simply changing their hairstyles does not provide them with the appropriate level of "transformation" to truly feel like they have changed their appearance for the better. Thus, hair color is sometimes necessary for perfecting that "new you" look.

When the consumers buy human hair, they want the human hair color of the hair weave totally matches their natural hair. But in some cases, they would also have to dye their hair to better match the color of extensions or weave hair that they have purchased the right color. Installing hair that does not match the color of their natural hair would make it obvious that they are wearing hair extensions. One particular color that is often discussed by people who wear weaves is 1B, also known as off-black.

What Does 1B Hair Color Fit In?

1B hair color is the natural color of black. We can call it off-black color and it is the closest to black that natural hair can go. This hair color lies between #1, which is black (or jet black), and #2, which is the darkest brown color possible on human hair (the color usually seems to be black until you go in for a closer look).

When people shop hair weave online, they will notice that the majority of wigs, hair extensions, and weave hair also comes in a 1B hair color instead of a solid black color. This is because #1 is not a natural color, but rather a dyed color; whereas 1B is the natural black hair color. If you find yourself buying hair that has a #1 color, or "jet black" color, then the hair has been processed and dyed prior to packaging and distribution; thus the hair would not have a natural color. For this reason, if you are looking to buy 100% human hair bundles, rather opt for hair that has the 1B hair color and not #1 as there is a better chance that the hair would be real and unprocessed with this natural hair color.

How To Get 1B Hair Color?

If you have bought buy human hair weave from the online shop, then you are not able to check the specific color against your natural hair color prior to purchase. Because there is always color aberration on different computers.You may receive the extensions and notice that the hair does not fully match the color of your natural hair; thus you will need to do some coloring to make sure your natural hair matches the color of the extensions.

If your natural hair is naturally black, then you most likely have a 1B hair color. If you bought extensions that also has a 1B hair color from a trusted human hair supplier, then there is a good chance that your natural hair simply needs a touchup (with age, hair can become gray, and its color may lose its original vibrance).

If you want to color your hair weave, there are two primary options that can help you dye your hair and get the two colors to match perfectly:

Temporary Hair Color- Which may include semi-permanent dye or henna.

Permanent Hair Color- If you decide to use permanent hair color, try to opt for a brand that has an ammonia-free option to choose from.
