Can I dye my human hair wig?

Yes, you can dye your human hair wig darker. However, we do not recommend bleaching or lightening human hair wigs, as this would severely damage the hair.

If you've been contemplating changing the color of your human hair wig, the good news is that you can indeed dye it darker to achieve your desired look. At UniWigs, our human hair wigs are crafted from 100% remy human hair, making them suitable candidates for a darker dye transformation. While we strongly recommend seeking professional hairstylist assistance for the dyeing process, we understand that many individuals prefer the hands-on approach. Dyeing your human hair wig at home can be both cost-effective and enjoyable, allowing you to personalize your wig to your dream hair color.

Here's a Quick Tutorial on How to Dye Your Human Hair Wig at Home:

Things you'll need:
- A wig stand
- Hair dye and 20-volume hair developer
- A plastic bowl
- Gloves
- A brush or comb
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Hair dryer

Top Tips for Dyeing Your Human Hair Wig:

Tip 1: Protect the Cap Base and Lace Front

When embarking on the dyeing journey, it's crucial to pay extra attention to safeguarding the wig's cap base and lace front. Dye stains can be challenging to remove, so apply a generous layer of Vaseline to the frontal lace and parting lines before dyeing. This protective barrier will prevent accidental dye spills from staining these areas.

Tip 2: Conduct a Strand Test

Before committing to the full dyeing process, it's wise to conduct a strand test. Select a small hair section and apply the dye. Wait a few hours to evaluate the results, ensuring that the color aligns with your vision. This step allows you to make any necessary adjustments before proceeding with the entire wig.

Tip 3: Consider Your Wig's Original Color

Keep in mind that lighter-colored wigs, such as platinum blondes, tend to accept dye more readily than darker shades. The starting color of your wig can influence the final outcome, so be mindful of your expectations.

Now, you're ready to embark on your wig-dyeing adventure! Best of luck as you transform your human hair wig into your dream shade. If you have any questions about dyeing your human hair wig, feel free to email us at [email protected] and our dedicated team will be delighted to help you!

    Hi Kimberly, Just like our bio hair, you can dye the human hairpieces a darker color. So we recommend the platinum blondes be dyed

Took my Adia human hair topper to my hair stylist for coloring. She did test strand and said try color did not lift. Meaning this is not human hair. Can you help me understand this, is this human hair? I have picture I can upload if needed.

    Thank you for your comment! Regarding your question, our hair pieces undergo special treatment during the dyeing process to ensure the longevity of the color. As stated on our website, our human hair products can be dyed again, but only in a darker shade. 

    To distinguish between human hair and synthetic fiber, there is a reliable method you can refer to burning the hair strand for smell and ashes. A small strand of hair can be burned, and if it is 100% human hair, it will smell like a barbecue and the ashes can be crumbled into powder. However, if it is synthetic, it will smell like plastic and the ashes will form a clump.
