Can you dye a synthetic wig with hair dye?
“Can you dye fake hair?”, “Can you spray paint a wig?”, “Can you bleach synthetic wigs?” or “Can you dye a synthetic wig with hair dye?” are the questions of many women who wear synthetic wigs.
Dyeing or bleaching hair or is a risky process. However, you can definitely dye a synthetic wig. One thing you must know is that if you want to dye your synthetic wig, try it on a cheaper old wig which you may have planned on replacing.
What are synthetic wigs?
When selecting a wig, you must have concerned about the quality of the wig. There is plenty of styles, colors, brands and wig types for you to choose. Therefore, understanding the differences between human hair wigs and synthetic wigs is a good starting point for selecting the perfect wig. We can say that choosing between human hair and synthetic hair is one of the most important decisions you will make when selecting a wig.
Because natural hair wigs are created from harvested human hair, they look, feel and act just like your hair. On the other hand, synthetic wigs are created from man-made fibers using specialized technology to give the overall appearance and feel of real hair. There is a misconception among first-time wig buyers that human hair wigs are “better than synthetic wigs because they are made of real hair. However, they don’t know that if a synthetic hair wig is of high quality, it is often difficult to discern the difference between the two hair fibers. There are, of course, differences, but the difference lies beneath the surface.
What are the benefits of synthetic wigs?
- Easy care: It is said that synthetic wigs are easy to take care of. You can wash, dry and then shake them out, and the wig will return to its initial style.
- Versatile: One of the best benefits of synthetic wigs is that you can try out various colors and styles without the need to see a hairstylist by purchasing multiple synthetic wigs.
- Large color selection: Because synthetic wigs have many colors, you can choose from an array of natural colors, as well as several fantasy colors.
- Cost: As you know, synthetic hair extensions are relatively inexpensive.
- Low maintenance: Unlike human hair wigs, synthetic wigs require very little maintenance.
- Natural-looking: If you purchase a high-quality synthetic wig, it is very difficult to tell the difference between a synthetic wig and one made from real human hair.
Can you dye human hair wigs?
As you know, some people lean more towards human hair wigs as human hair can technically be dyed. There’s no denying the fact that this process is not necessarily recommended as the hair must be dyed by a professional in order to not damage the cap, and can potentially affect the quality of the wig.
How to dye a wig?
Have you ever tried to dye your hair at home and had it go horribly, wrong? Today we will introduce some tips showing how to dye a wig!
- Mix the hair dye:
You should mix a 1:1 ratio of alcohol-based ink and water in a spray bottle. Besides, you should purchase an alcohol-based ink from your local craft store that’s the color you want to dye your wig. Emptying the contents of the ink bottle into a spray bottle is the next step. Then, you can add in the same amount of water to the spray bottle, screw the top on, and shake it up to mix the contents.
- Put on old clothes and rubber gloves:
Because some of the hair dye can stick on your clothing, you should wear old outfits that you don’t like or don’t wear. Before you start dyeing hair, put on rubber gloves to keep your hands clean and help to minimize the mess.
- Apply the hair dye:
Apply dye on your wig by hands, gently scoop the dye over the wig and spread it through the layers of the wig. One thing you must remember is that you should try not to roughly rub the dye into the wig.
- Brush through the hair:
Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the dye throughout the wig. Combing hair will make sure that the dye is evenly applied to the entire wig. Therefore, dyed hair can look more natural.
- Leave the wig for a period of time:
You can read the package on the dye to see how long you should leave it. Regularly, this process will be about thirty minutes. If the package doesn’t have this information, check the wig every ten minutes. Until it has reached the right color, you can wash it.
- Wash hair with shampoo:
You can wash with a special wig shampoo or a color-safe shampoo. Remember to clean the excess dye with water.
- Apply conditioner to the tips of the wig:
It is said that the conditioner gives extra shine to your wig. Remember to avoid using any conditioner near the roots of your wig or else the hair might fall out. Afterward, rinse out the conditioner with cool or lukewarm water.
- Dry hair with a towel:
Firstly, you should gently squeeze the wig with the towel to remove excess water. Then you can wrap wig on this towel for 10 minutes. Finally, you can let it air dry or you can use a hairdryer on a low setting to make sure that the wig does not overheat.
As mentioned in the article, unlike human hair wigs, there is a high likelihood that the synthetic wig will be ruined if you dye it.
