Dying a human hair wig is not as hard as it may seem. If you have ever dyed your own hair, then you can dye a human hair wig. However, keep in mind that this process can be tricky if you’re not familiar with it. If you don’t know how to dye your human hair bundles, read on for step-by-step instructions on how to do so safely and effectively!
Here is how to go about it:
Mix Your Dye
If you are going to dye your human hair wig, you must first decide what colour to dye it. There are many different brands of dyes on the market, but they all work in the same way. The main difference is the amount of time you have to wait between applying the dye and washing it out.
You don’t need any special tools or equipment, just a plastic bowl and some warm water. You can also use a cap or shower cap if you want to keep your hair protected. It is also best to use 20 volume developer for this process as it will give you great results without damaging your hair.
You should also ensure you use a plastic bowl and not a metal bowl, or metal spoon to stir the mixture. Metals can possibly oxidize the mixture and affect the resultant solution.
Test your Dye
Before dyeing, test your dye on a few strands of hair from your wig to make sure it will work with your wig. If you are using an ammonia-based or semipermanent dye, rinse out the colour after testing and try again until satisfied with the results.
Soak your Human Hair Wig in the Dye
Soaking your human hair wig in the dye helps it absorb the colour better than just brushing it on with a brush. Put your wig into an empty tub and pour enough dye into the tub until it covers the wig. Let it soak for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it out again.
While rubbing the wig ensure you do it gently, you don’t want put much effort and tamper with the general structure of the wig.
Wash the Hair with a Shampoo and a Conditioner
It is recommended to wash the hair with a shampoo and conditioner for about two minutes. This will remove any dirt or oil from the hair. After washing, you can use a blow dryer on low heat to dry the hair. If you have long hair, it is important that you use a wide-toothed comb when drying so that it will not break while drying.
Dry Set the Wig on a Stand
The first step in dying a human hair wig is setting it on a stand just as you would on your head using pins. This will allow you to brush through the wig and distribute the dye evenly throughout the strands.
However, before then dry pat the wig with a towel then set it up on the stand. Brushing through your wig with a bristle brush will distribute the dye evenly and make it look more realistic when you wear it later. You can also use your fingers but with gloves on if necessary.
The hair wig is one of the most important investment a human hair can wear. This is why you must take precautionary steps and treat it with utmost care to protect the natural hair underneath. You don’t want to end up with a disastrously ruined wig, do you? Make sure that all chemicals applied to the hair wig are made from the finest and safest ingredients possible. Choose your hairstylist carefully before you entrust him or her to dye your wig. After all, your hair is better off in the hands of an expert on human locks, rather than someone who hasn’t had any formal training in how to do so. For these reasons, it is best that you choose very wisely! Your best bet is to visit your trusted local vendor and verify that he or she has had prior experience with wigs!
