How to Color Human Hair Wigs?

Coloring a black human hair wig can be an exciting way to refresh your look or achieve a style that’s uniquely yours. Unlike synthetic wigs, human hair wigs can be dyed using similar methods to natural hair, allowing for a wide range of color possibilities. However, the process requires care and attention to detail to ensure the best results and to maintain the wig's quality. Here’s your step-by-step guide to coloring human hair wigs.

1. Choose the Right Color
First, decide on the color you want. Consider your skin tone and the original color of the purple human hair wig. Lightening a wig is more challenging than darkening it, as bleaching can be damaging. If you're new to dyeing hair, you might want to start with a subtle change.

2. Gather Your Supplies
You'll need:

Hair dye (semi-permanent or permanent)
Developer (if using permanent dye)
Bleach and a toner (if you plan to lighten the wig significantly)
A dye brush
A mixing bowl
Aluminum foil or plastic wrap
A wig stand or mannequin head
A comb
Shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair
3. Prepare the Wig
Before you start, wash the straight human hair wig to remove any styling products and build-up. Let it dry completely, as applying dye to a wet wig can result in uneven color. Place the wig on a stand to keep it stable while you work.

4. Strand Test
Always perform a strand test before fully committing to the color, especially if you're using the dye for the first time. Choose a small, inconspicuous section of hair to color. This will help you gauge how long you need to leave the dye in to achieve your desired shade.

5. Apply the Dye
Mix the dye according to the instructions on the package. Starting from the front of the wig, apply the dye with the brush, working in small sections to ensure even coverage. Use foil or plastic wrap to separate sections if you're using more than one color or if you want to keep certain sections dye-free.

6. Processing Time
The amount of time you should leave the dye in will depend on the type of dye you’re using and the desired intensity of the color. It's generally a good idea to check the color every 10 minutes by wiping a small section clean with a damp cloth.

7. Rinsing
Once you’re happy with the color, rinse the wig thoroughly with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. It's important to rinse it as gently as possible to avoid tangling.

8. Conditioning
After rinsing, apply a generous amount of conditioner formulated for color-treated hair. This will help seal the color and keep the hair soft and manageable. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes before rinsing.

9. Drying
Gently pat the wig with a towel to remove excess water. Avoid rubbing, as this can cause tangles. Place the wig on a stand and let it air dry completely before styling. Avoid using high heat settings when blow-drying or styling to protect the color and the hair’s integrity.

10. Maintenance
Colored ponytail wigs human hair require a bit more care to maintain their look. Use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners designed for color-treated hair. Avoid excessive heat styling, and store your wig away from direct sunlight to prevent the color from fading.

Coloring a human hair wig can give it a whole new life and allow you to customize your look in exciting ways. By following these steps and taking proper care of your wig, you can enjoy vibrant, beautiful hair color that lasts.
