      Yes, you can. I would do a test strand before you do too many though. If you plan on coloring, it might be better to start with something slightly lighter so the purple comes out more vibrant.

        That depends. They are both Kanekalon, so it will react as a Kanekalon fiber does. If your technique works in Kanekalon jumbo, it will not be different for this fiber.

      That really depends on how they were installed. Permanent extensions are typically designed to be just that, so they can be tricky to remove. You can probably do it with some careful dissection.
