You've stalked the best hair extension stylist on Instagram, finally secured a hair appointment with her and bought the perfect hair extensions. You bought Virgin Indian Hair and it’s the perfect length, style and texture -- it’s too bad the shade just isn't quite right. The trick with Virgin Indian hair is that because it has never been colored the color can range from a natural black to a soft dark brown and you just might be an natural off black.
