Hey Ladies,

Quick question : Is it possible to dye or color synthetic hair...? I have a synthetic lace wig , and it's a 4/30 but I want to lighten it a little? Can I use dark n lovely like on my own hair ? or is there a certain type of color that goes on synthetic hair..??

Maybe buy a cheap synthetic sample of weave or a pack of hair for braiding and test it out before hand? If it works then you can try it on your wig...Smile

Why what happens if you dye synthetic hair? If you really wanna see just buy a sample of hair and test it. I don't see the harm in that.

yeah, you cannot lift color in synthetic hair. now u can use a rinse to deposit color on it, but it will only be a slight difference. nothin too major

Actually you can dye syn hair, but you can't use the same kinds of dye that you would use on human hair because it will not take. The dyes for Syn. hair are pretty hard to find  and usually the colors offered are very loud/ dramatic " Red,Pinks,Green,Lavender etc."......I assume that like a lot of dyes going from dark to lighter shades could be more work and when you factor in paying a higher price for the dye it may be easier to just get the human hair  in the tone your looking for or purchasing then dying the human hair.

haircolor only takes if there is a cortex beyond the cuticle, which is found in human/animal hair...synthetic hair... isn't hair...if you color it you waste money and time
