How To Dye A Synthetic Wig?

Many people choose synthetic wigs due to expense and various colors. But what if you can't find your desired color? Can you dye synthetic wigs? The answer is YES. But we actually don't recommend you try this because it may easily ruin the wig. And if you must dye your synthetic wig, try it on a cheaper old wig which you may have planned on replacing.

There are normally two methods you can dye a synthetic wig.

Method #1:
What you need:
1. A light colored wig that is heat resistant (You only can dye light wigs to a darker color. You cannot dye it to a lighter color.)
2. An old tablecloth
3. Old unwanted clothes
4. A pair of latex gloves
5. Fabric dye of your choice(NEVER USE REGULAR HAIR DYE ON SYNTHETIC HAIR – it will melt!)
6. A spray bottle
7. A wide-tooth comb

Step #1: Set up your work space. Pick a location outside or a well-ventilated work space. Place a table in your location with an old tablecloth on it.
Step #2: Put on your old unwanted clothes and latex gloves to avoid being stained.
Step #3: Put the fabric dye into a spray bottle. Spay your dye on the top layer of hair(www.itymahair.com) at first. Wiggle your fingers from side to side to bring the fabric dye down through the hair. Run your fingers through the top hair 3-4 times.
Step #4: Repeat this application process for each section of hair.
Step #5: Use a wide-tooth comb to comb through the hair to even out the dye application.
Step #6: Leave the wig out to air dry for 24 hours. Once the wig is dry, rinse it in a sink until the water in the sink is completely clear without any traces of fabric dye color.

Method #2:
What you need:
1. A light colored wig that is heat resistant (You only can dye light wigs to a darker color. You cannot dye it to a lighter color.)
2. An old tablecloth
3. Old unwanted clothes
4. A pair of latex gloves
5. A large pot to stir the whole wig and a stove
6. Fabric dye of your choice(NEVER USE REGULAR HAIR DYE ON SYNTHETIC HAIR – it will melt!)

Step #1: Set up your work space. Pick a location outside or a well-ventilated work space. Place a table in your location with an old tablecloth on it.
Step #2: Put on your old unwanted clothes and latex gloves to avoid being stained.
Step #3: Put your pot filled with water on the stove and bring the water to the boil. Then drop in the fabric dye. The more color you add, the darker it'll come out.
Step #4: Put the wig under the sink to get it wet which helps process of actual dyeing.
Step #5: After the water reaches boiling, take the pot off the heat and and quickly dunk the wig(www.itymahair.com) in. The longer it is in the water, the more of the color it'll take in and as a result, the darker the wig will get.
Step #6: Once the wig looks the right color, remove the wig and rinse it in cold water. Do this until the water runs clear and then leave it air dry.

As mentioned at the very beginning, unlike human hair wigs, there is a high likelihood that the synthetic wig will be ruined if you dye it. We DO NOT recommend dying synthetic wigs and since they always comes in so many different colors, it's always better to buy a new wig in the color you'd like.
