I have an italian yaki full lace wig in color 2 and my hair is 1B. The texture of the wig for me to blend my hair is not a problem, but the color difference is. Any suggestions?

I'd dye the hair to a off-black/1B color

I assume you're wearing your unit behind the hairline? How do you install/apply it? 

I agree, juicifruit, it would be easiest to dye the unit a darker color than to try to lighten your hair and potentially damaging your natural hair.

I forgot to mention in my post that the unit has a silk top. I contemplated dying the hair, but I don't know how to do it without ruining the silk top.

In relation to this, this is the link to the thread I started this morning:

It doesn't have clips or combs so I did Tootsie's mom's elastic band method to hold it in place, with a satin du-rag underneath, as an alternative to a wig cap. I tie the du-rag secure enough, but not tight on my hairline for the sake of my edges and hairline. I then use bobby pins on the sides to secure the unit.

Since there is a difference in colour between my natural hair and the colour of the wig, I do not leave any of my own hair out.

I agree with dyeing the hair but since it has a silk top, it may turn black as well.

I've seen people spray Jerome Russel temporary hair color on their leave out so it matches the color of their unit. The spray comes in various colors and is available at most drug stores.

If you used a temporary or a semi-perm dye (something with no developer), it would not be time sensitive, and you could take your time applying the color to the wig.  It's not difficult to dye a silktop, you just have to be extra careful and patient to not drip color on the silk when you section.  since you are darkening the wig, semi color would work fine.  I like the Cairol beautiful collection that Sally's has, for this kind of color.  The Bigen liquid is good, too; so is the Adore line.  That's what I would do!
