Dyeing Your Synthetic Wig: All You Need to Know

Wigs are an important alternative to styling your hair. Synthetic wigs, especially, are affordable and come in all manner of colors, lengths, and cuts. You can simply pick a style you want instead of styling your hair with dyes and heat-styling tools. This way, you get to switch hairstyles anytime you want, while reducing the risk of hair damage. To get more style options, you just need to get more wigs. But sometimes, there’s not enough space or budget to accommodate this solution. To get a new look without buying new wigs, you can consider dyeing your old wigs.

Here are a few things you should know before you start:

 

Can you dye a synthetic wig?

The answer to this question is ‘Yes’. Though it’s not generally recommended, you can use certain dyes to change the color of your synthetic wigs.

 

Can you dye your synthetic wig a lighter color?

Unfortunately, no. You can dye your synthetic wigs up to 5 times, but only with darker color each time. Attempting to bleach or lighten the color has a very high chance of ruining the wig fibres.

 

Can you dye a synthetic wig with regular hair dye?

No. The problem with dyeing synthetic wigs is that they are made from processed fibre like acrylic and nylon which gives them a different structure than normal hair. Regular hair dye can’t penetrate synthetic hair fibres and might ruin your hair piece instead.

 

What kind of dye works on synthetic wigs?

Fibre dyes

Acrylic paint

Alcohol-based ink

Permanent marker ink

 

What do you need to dye your synthetic wigs?

Heat-resistant synthetic wig

Fabric dye

Pot

Stove

Water

Disposable gloves

Newspaper

 

How to dye your synthetic wigs

1. Prepare your wig

It’s best to choose light-colored wigs like pastel, blonde, or white hair as they let you go with any color. Clean your wig before you dye it to ensure the dyeing process is smooth and unaffected. Wash the wig with shampoo appropriate for synthetic wigs to remove dirt and dry it afterward.

 

2. Take protective measures

This helps to prevent getting stains in unwanted areas. Take steps like covering your work area protected with newspaper, wearing an apron or old clothes to protect your clothes, putting on disposable gloves to cover your hands, etc.

 

3. Boil water in a pot

Next, add enough water to a pot large enough to contain the wig and heat it until it boils.

 

4. Add the dye to the water

Add three tablespoons of fabric dye for every cup of water in the pot and allow it to mix well. Then reduce the heat so the water cools to a simmer

 

5. Wet the wig and put it in the pot

First, rinse the wig with water to dampen it and make it easier to dye. Then carefully put it in the pot and stir it so it soaks properly. The longer the wig remains in the pot, the darker it gets, so soak it until you get the color you want. Remember to hold the lace of the wig above the dye if you don’t want it to stain.

 

6. Remove and dry the wig

Take out the wig once you get the color you want and rinse it until the water runs clear. Then place it on a line or wig stand and allow it to dry.

 

Conclusion

Dyeing your wigs is a convenient way to switch without damaging your natural hair. Fabric dyes made from synthetic and polyester materials are a great option for dyeing your synthetic wigs. By taking the appropriate steps while dyeing, you can give your wigs a fresh look that lasts!
