A human hair wig, although it comes at quite an expensive price tag, it is still much more preferred by most ladies over synthetic wigs. Primarily because of the best quality, it looks more natural and long-lasting. Using a human hair wig allows the user to dye their hair which is not possible with synthetic hair wigs. Although some precautions are necessary in this regard and connection, the procedure is relatively simple.
There is attention involved, and instructions should be kept in mind given by the manufacturers while applying dye to a human hair wig. Below discussed are some necessary precautions while dying a human hair wig.
Before proceeding to dye, a human hair wigs must be washed thoroughly to clean every strand and remove any unwanted dirt build-up from an accumulation of dust and oils.
After the wig is washed to clear every strand of dirt, it is then let out to dry or blow-dried to complete dryness.
Next, using a large-tooth comb to segregate the human hair wig into four distinct sections, the hair on the wig is combed thoroughly to keep untangled and separated so that they do not run into knots.
Using a homemade colouring recipe, empty the colours and mix it in an open bowl with a spatula or mixing spoon. In case, one uses a readymade hair colouring kit; it is even easier to follow the instructions given by the manufacturer on the product case and proceed on those directions.
However, the crux or premises of the entire process remain similar, more or less, i.e. diluting the concentrated colouring dye with an appropriate thinning agent, to subtle things out and after colouring conditioner is used on many an occasion. It is advisable and strongly recommended to be wearing gloves while handling hair colour and related chemicals. Also maintaining air circulation and adequate ventilation may eliminate any chances of suffocation from the stagnation of harmful substances in the immediate atmospheric system.
Carefully drape the wig on a mannequin head to ensure complete attention is given while dyeing.
Pulling and tugging the wig is done at the front to ensure it is secure; the colour in mixed in an open bowl and slowly the process of adding colour beginning with the top of the wig. The top of the wig is the origin or root of any wig.
When applying dye or hair colour to a any wig or blonde wig, it is always recommended to move to cover the rest of the crown. Once arriving at the crown portion of the wig, every section of the hair is segregated and separately coloured or dyed till the entire wig is completed.
Once the entire wig is covered in uniform layers and shade of the hair colour or dye, it is allowed to sit back and dry. The drying process is not meant for more than 25 minutes. Allowing the dye to sit for more than 25 minutes may spoil the finishing look and appeal of the final product. Once the colour has dried off, wash off the excess and remaining by applying a light mask of hair conditioner to the wig for 3 minutes. Dry the wig and rinse the conditioner off and then proceed to style as desired.
