What you should know before dyeing your human hair wig.
It’s important to ensure your wig is made from real human hair. Real hair wigs can withstand the process of dyeing since they are made from real hair quality. Eternal wigs offer real human hair wigs and ensure this are the options you choose if you need to colour them.
If your wig is already coloured into a brown, brunette, blonde colour or whatever the colour might be, then it needs to be bleached in the first instance to a blonde tone. After this is bleached, you then have the perfect canvass to dye the wig into any colour you wish.
If you are a beginner and new to dyeing wigs then its best to start with a blonde canvass rather than lightning a coloured wig. It’s much safer rather than playing around with developers, bleach etc.
It’s important to note bleaching a wig can damage the quality of the hair and absolutely necessary to follow the instructions and use the right proportions to avoid any damage to the wig.
Start with choosing the perfect colour. Semi-permanent dyes are much easier to use and work with cause the dye sits on the surface of the hair.
Semi-permanent hair dyes are also known as temporary dyes and here are a few good semi-permanent hair dyes you can use.
We strongly urge you not to risk bleaching your wig to a blonde colour unless you are an expert because you don’t want to risk damaging your wig.
You really won’t need a whole lot of tools to dye your wig. Just a few bits and bobs. You will require angled bleach brush and a hair dye bowl set. Got 2 be glue spray is optional but we highly recommend.
Gently comb through your wig to remove any tangles. Spray the got2be spray on the lace of the wig to prevent the lace from staining.
Follow the instructions as recommended on the hair dye packet, if you are mixing up two colours, ensure this is mixed thoroughly to ensure it blends in well with your wig.
Work in small sections from the bottom to the top and apply your colour. Make sure to apply the colour evenly throughout the entire wig and let the colour sit for the amount of time recommended on the dye instruction. Usually about 30-40 minutes
When the application is through, time to wash your wig. Wash and rinse with cool lukewarm water and condition thereafter.
Your wig is ready, style as required to your desired look.
The quickest and easiest way to dye a wig is to start with a blonde canvass, use a human hair wig rather than synthetic and don’t bleach it unless you are a pro, use the right products and the right tools and follow the step by step guide to ensure you get this right and your wig comes out lovely.
