Useful Tips on Dying a Human Hair Wig at Home
1.Virgin Hair Wigs are Best to Dye
Virgin human hair wig is the best hair wig to use for coloring. Why? Virgin hair is in its original state not damaged and has not been chemically treated in any way, which makes it absorb the color better in comparison to Remy or Non-Remy hair.
2.Take Careful Attention to Detail
Coloring your wig is a process that takes careful attention to detail, or you could ruin your unit beyond repair. It’s fine if dyeing is done professionally and correctly.
3.Be Loyal to the Primary Hair Color
It is recommended to dye the wig only to the color that does not need to be bleached. If you first bleach and then dye, the hair damage will be very serious. So you’d better be loyal to your original color and choose a color based on your original hair color.
4.Be careful with curly human hair wig
Because curly human hair wigs absorb hair dye more easily than straight human hair wigs and are more susceptible to damage. Therefore, when dyeing curly hair wigs, remember to reduce dye component. Distilled water was then used instead of the dye component and mixed as usual.
5.Do not Dye the Hair Roots
Do not dye the hair roots, leave 0.5 cm out to avoid smudging the artificial scalp of the wig.
Try to dye faster, because the wig is colored faster than the real person’s hair. In general, wigs take only 15-20 minutes to color. And if the time is too long, it will burn the hair.
How to Dye A Human Hair Wig at Home
Step 1: Wash the Wig
A human hair wig must be washed thoroughly to clean every strand and remove any unwanted dirt build up from accumulation of dust and oils. While washing, do not apply conditioner or styling product to the wig. Then, let out to dry or blow dried to complete dryness.
Step 2: Comb and Secure the Wig
Use a large tooth comb to divide the human hair wig into four different parts, combing the hair into a state of not tangling and separating so that they do not knot. Then, secure the clean, dry wig to the wig head using T-pins.
Step 3: Mix the Dye and the Developer
Mix the 20 volume hair developer with dye. Read the instructions on your dye to see how much dye you should combine with the developer.
Step 4: Apply the Dye
Wear disposable glove and use the hair color brush to apply
the color to the human hair wig. Make sure all hair is
completely covered. Keep the color away from the knot of the
wig root and the wig cap.When applying the dye, spray a little
water to cool down the hair. Because hair dyeing will increase
the temperature of the hair, spraying water will avoid
burning the hair, and the hair wig will not be very hairy.
Then, wait 10-15 minutes for the color to set.
Step 5: Wash the Hair Wig
Remove the wig from the wig head and rinse with warm water until the water is clean. Apply a post-color conditioner and maintain the length of time specified in the package instructions. Rinse thoroughly.
Step 6: Let the Wig Dry
You can dry it or use the hair dryer at a lower temperature. If you want to air dry the wig, leave it on the shelf until it is completely dry. If you want to blow dry, blow the hair dryer up and down on your hair. Make sure the wig does not overheat.
