As we live and grow in ourselves and experiences, fashion inspiration may change. You may have noticed in your daily wig-wear a wig that has been pushed to the side as the months have gone by. Maybe it’s because the cut doesn’t quite express your style anymore, or your interest in your wig color has changed.
Either way, you may be considering ways to update your wigs to get more use out of them, and possibly even dying them yourself to compliment your current style or fashion choices. But, should you risk trying to change the wig color or tone? Or will you actually end up damaging your investment in the process?
Can You Dye Synthetic or Human Hair Wigs?
Unfortunately, you cannot dye synthetic hair wigs. At least, not with traditional means as it can completely damage and ruin your wig. If you choose to dye a synthetic wig, you will actually have to make your own hair dye.
Some people choose to do it with acrylic paint, fabric dye, markers and sharpies, or even food coloring. When it comes to human hair, there is less risk of ruining the wig–you just have to be extra cautious of the wig cap. Because of this, seeking out professional help would be a good option when considering updating your human hair wig.
