Can I Dye Or Color My Lace Wig?

Usually when you purchase a lace wig you are able to select the color that you want, but sometimes things happen and the one you get is not the color you ordered. In cases like that your best bet is to contact the manufacturer of the wig to see what can be done about getting the color that you ordered. If for some reason, you cannot return the wig or if you are just tired of the old color and ready for a change you can dye or color your wig to any desired shade.

Coloring Lace Wigs Made From Human Hair
Human hair wigs can be colored using the same dye you would use on your own hair, but you will need a few extra supplies to get the job done right. When coloring a human hair wig you will need to be careful to ensure you don’t get any of the color on the lace, if the color gets onto the lace it can ruin your wig and make it a bit more noticeable. Before applying any color to your human hair wig, apply a small amount of Vaseline to the lace to help prevent any hair dye from penetrating the lace. You should also keep the hair dye about 1 millimeter away from the lace, which doesn’t allow any color to show around the roots but keeps the lace its original color.

Coloring a Synthetic Lace Wig
Coloring a synthetic lace wig is a bit different from a human hair wig because of the synthetic fibers used to create the wig. The main difference is that you cannot use regular hair dye on synthetic lace wigs instead, you will need to use all-purpose or fabric dyes. The reason you have to use a different type of dye is that human hair wigs hold pigment, whereas synthetic lace wigs do not. Otherwise coloring your wig is the same, you need to be careful to avoid getting any dye on the lace and you want to follow the specific instructions that come on the box to ensure that you are doing it right.

If you are not comfortable coloring your own wig, no matter what it is made from, you can always visit a professional lace wig stylist to have it done. Many wig manufacturers actually recommend taking the wig in to have it colored because of the chemical processes that have to be used. Remember if you damage your wig while dying it you will have to purchase a new wig.
