In this article, I’ll go over the different types of Dreamcatcher Hair extensions available on the market and what each set will cost you. You should know before we dive into this that these hair extensions are a little harder to come by as they are only sold in professional salon settings.
My name’s Katy and my experience with hair extensions has certainly evolved over time. Over the years, I’ve tried all sorts of hair extensions.
I can confidently tell you that dreamcatcher hair extensions are one of those products that can add a boost in length and volume to natural hair.
Most Dreamcatcher hair extensions are made with Remy hair, and they can exist in the form of i-tip, tape-in, k-tip, or straight-up wefts of luxurious hair. These extensions are available in 50 different colors and are available for installation at selected salons.
Here’s the cost breakdown. Keep in mind, costs may vary based on location and salon prices.
How Much do Dreamcatcher Hair Extensions Cost?
Here is the cost of different types of dreamcatcher hair extensions:
After calling around to around 30 salons across the USA, I was able to determine that the general cost of the hair itself and the installation process ran about $700-$900.
This cost is dependent on the salon pricing and does not include the cost of a tip for your fantastic stylist installing these extensions.
Play it safe and budget around $1,000 to get these applied properly. Another thing to keep in mind is the cost of maintenance. As happens with i-tip extensions, they grow out with your natural hair and will need to be re-installed every 4-6 weeks. 8 weeks if you’re really pushing it.
The cost of re-installation and routine maintenance will again be dependent on the salon and their individual stylists’ pricing, but budgeting around $500-$700 for maintenance is a safe bet.
Slightly less than the initial installation and covering the cost of the hair, but still close to the initial cost to maintain.
Similar to i-tip hair extensions, these cost roughly $600-$800. This price tag is slightly less than the cost of installing Dreamcatcher i-tip hair extensions to your head, but not by much.
Keep in mind, because these cannot be purchased by the general public, you are paying not only for the cost of the hair, but the time and effort it takes for the stylist to attach them to your natural hair.
This process can be time-consuming and the overall price reflects that. Just like other types of hair extensions, routine maintenance is a must.
Tape-in hair extensions need to be re-taped and moved closer to the root line of your natural hair every 4-6 weeks. You can get away with 8 weeks if your natural hair grows at a slower rate.
Based on the average salon cost of having Dreamcatcher k-tip hair extensions applied to your own hair, it will cost you approximately $400-800. These are similar in price to the i-tip hair extensions because the installation process and amount of hair needed are similar.
Due to the initial installation appointment and the cost of the hair, having $1,000 set aside for this intensive hair process is a good idea. This will allow you enough to cover the cost of the hair, labor, and a tip for the stylist making you look so glam!
Regarding routine maintenance, you are looking at about 4-8 weeks between maintenance appointments and approximately the same cost as the initial installation as the maintenance process is similar.
Sew-Ins with Wefts
The average cost of all-inclusive application of sew-in Dreamcatcher hair extensions is around $700-900. This includes again, the cost of the hair and the time it takes to install these hair extensions.
Due to the labor and time-intensive process that comes along with sew-in hair extensions, it’s a good idea to set aside a little extra to cover any additional charges specific to the salon and to tip your stylist for their hours of hard work. Set aside $1,000+ for this type of extension.
Did you think I wasn’t going to mention routine maintenance? Please! Every 6-8 weeks, you should hit the salon to get the braids re-done to sit closer to your scalp and have the wefts sewn back in, as long as they are in good condition.
Here are some most commonly asked questions regarding the cost of Dreamcatcher hair extensions.
How Long do Dreamcatcher Hair Extensions Last?
Most Dreamcatcher hair extensions will last up to two years with proper care and maintenance. You will need to head to the salon every 4-6 weeks for routine hair care. This may look like re-sewing hair wefts or re-taping hair closer to the natural root.
Apply high-quality shampoo, conditioner, and hair oil is also a great way to extend its lifespan.
Can Dreamcatcher Hair Extensions be Dyed?
These hair extensions can be colored darker or toned to the right shade of blonde but lightening them isn’t recommended.
If you don’t think you can find the correct match from the 50 shades Dreamcatcher offers, buy hair in a shade lighter than the hair you want it to match, allowing you to darken it to the right color.
How do I Take Care of My Dreamcatcher Hair Extensions?
Wash, dry and style these as you would your natural hair. Dreamcatcher hair extensions are safe to wash and condition as well as style with or without heat.
Just be sure when brushing your hair, you hold your hair close to the root so as not to accidentally pull any of the extensions out. This is a common technique for caring for any brand of hair extension. Brush gently!
While these high-quality hair extensions are ideal for adding length and volume to a variety of hair types and lengths, these are selectively available to the general public. Without a current cosmetology license or proof of enrollment at a certified cosmetology school, these cannot be purchased.
Have no fear though! You can still get these attached to your head without a fancy license. The salons that carry and install these hair extensions are spread out across the USA. Call up your local salon and see if they carry Dreamcatcher in your location.
A qualified hair extensions specialist can apply these to your hair and help with routine maintenance to keep them looking brand new!
