First off, I have done soooooooo much to this wig:
1. when first got it i dyed the front dark blue and the rest light blue and let it in over night. it started off silver.
2. I attempted to dye the last brown with tea but accidentally tinted it blue.
3. Attempted to correct the problem by using sally hansen. Then sprayed light stocking to match.
4. After it dried I sprayed the roots with "dark brown" jerome russel spray but it was really more purple which also works. I was trying to cover the sally hansen spray that bled through.
5. Added two tracks of mossy green extensions. I plan to add about 6 more tracks, but I just wanted to hurry up and get the damn thing on.

*check first two pics below for the Pre- P-O-R-N

Then the application process. Hilarity. I had great results but i failed my actual goal. I wanted a really flat calp feeling base so I molded my hair with geo-protect. But, my dumb a$$ left a ponytail holder in my hair and didnt realize it until I glued my wig cap down. There was no way way, i was going back, though. So, I have a huge invisible lump in the back of my head. . lol

*check the next 11 pics below*

First day I glued down using go2b method, but I had a gentleman caller last night so I had to re-apply this morning lol. Naa but i think it lifted cuz he would not stop playing in my hair. It's a good thing I resized the unit because otherwise my wig would've fallen off this morning. I used that 30 second brand of glue because thats all they sell in bed-stuy these days. Damn shame. I glued behind the hairline but DONT WORRY, that's half the reason I used gro-protect... And honey my wig is LAID. I was too lazy to glue all the way around, so I bobby pinned along the sides and back. My hair is in twists today because I'm going to be around white people
and I want it to look super pretty. I gotta represent ya'll. No one has ever thought my hair was fake until i told them and they're not gonna start now. lol. I 'll post more pics later.

*check last 3 pics below for natural lighting pics*

I'm not even close to being done messing with this hair. It WILL be perfect. The next step is to re-dye my leave-out... although it does add some dimension to the blues. Any advice on how to make semi-permanent hair color look DULLER? I'm serious. The blue is a little bit too well done done for my taste, which is my own fault. I dyed it the way I dye my virgin hair and that's a lot less porous than hair that's already been processed.

So, yha help me dull the color of this hair or can i get ideas on how to make it slightly darker? maybe a rinse of some kind? what would happen if i did a black rinse on it? would it go straight to black or just tint it?

OK, I know; I'm 'white people'.  LOL  But that totally really DOES look like your hair!

I'm wondering if a shade of Manic Panic could do what you're looking for?

Thanx, y'all.. My bestie is visiting me from LA, so i havent gotten a chance to do anything to this hair. However i do spray the roots with jerome russell spray to make them darker and i accidentally bought pink spray, too, so i've been spraying my ends with that for fun. I love it. More pics are coming soon.

Hennared, i'm probably gonna be getting your unit in the mail today. I plan on boiing it. Stay tuned...
