WIGS 101: How to Color Your Human Hair Wig
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.

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.
