In fact, a real human hair wig like our natural hair can be bleached and dyed without worries if it is in the right way. If you want to change the hair color of your wig and avoid staining the lace, keep reading to know more knowledge.
2. Should I bleach the knots before dyeing a wig?
4. How to get the glue off the lace afterward?
If you love to transform the hair color for a fresh and new look, we highly recommend buying a human hair wig , instead of synthetic hair. But why?
Yes, but we do not recommend it. According to most experts, synthetic hair is essentially plastic, so certain pigments and bleach do not work on it. If you try to change its color with hair dye, you are gonna take the risk of running it. Actually, synthetic wigs are readily available in many colors, and dyeing them is not a good idea.
Another situation: if you have a light-colored wig like blonde, there is no need to bleach the knots because they're already light in color and invisible.
There are two methods: water coloring your wig/brushing your wig carefully.
In this way, the lace will be sealed and protected and it is very convenient for you to put the whole wig into the water with hair dye and then the color will be changed without staining lace.
Brushing your wig carefully: there are some tools that should be prepared: a mannequin, an angled brush, gloves, a bowl and hair dye. Before dyeing the wig, you can use plenty of hairspray to protect the lace. Then brush the hair dye evenly to each section of hair and avoid the lace front.
The benefit of watercolor dye: Based on the detailed instruction, you can successfully dye your wig at home, which saves your time and money.
Rubbing alcohol can remove the glue from the skin easily and quickly. Firstly, use a cotton ball that dabs the alcohol to apply the hairline or use a bottle to spray the alcohol on the edge of the lace. After five to ten minutes, the gel can be removed.
In general, it can last over one year if you put the wig in the water with hair dye for 30 minutes. But we do not recommend frequently dyeing a human hair wig since the hair dye contains lots of chemistry that will cause hair damage and loss.
