One day you look at your wig collection and find out your black wig can no longer be used. If you intend to get a new one, don’t be hasty. You can always make use of a wig you don’t use and dye it into black to save some money and have fun.
Can you dye a wig black?
The answer is yes, but you need to consider what type of wig you are using. Unlike human hair wig, synthetic wig barely endures the chemical compounds in hair dye. The synthetic fibers can be simply burnt out under the influence of the chemical. There are still ways to dye a synthetic wig, but it’s more complicated to do and after dying, the wig will become more fragile. It might be the last time you can use your synthetic wig. Therefore, we recommend using a human hair wig for the dying process. Although the natural strands are more expensive, you can dye them relatively easily and change their style. Human hair wig also lasts longer, so in the long run, you can eventually save money.
