Ladies I am in need of advice. So I have a unit that I didn't like so I thought I'd ombre dye it to breathe some new life into it. The unit is24" Virgin Brazilian I purchased from a vendor on Etsy. Long story short I bleached the wig twice......no damage I just can't seem to get the ends as blonde as I want. I used BW 2 powder & a 30 volume developer and seriously processed it for about an hour both times. Any suggestions or advice on what I'm doing wrong or what I should try next to get the ends blonde???

i would suggest you to do a protein treatment on the hair and use a blue toner to achieve the blonde color on the end of the hair.
You should also post your uestion in the Hair color section for more responses

I think i will do that because I really dont want to damage the hair too much more. The protein treatment should help with that though. Should i do the protein treatment before or after (or both) the dye?

I'd say do it after. Doing it before, it would probably end up being washed out. There is also a shampoo you can use on the hair after it is bleached that worked to make the blonde more blonde and less orange. I can't remember what it is called but I think you can find it in the grocery store.

You use the protien treatment both before and after this is not hair that is growing so you have to be extra careful. You should have gotten the blonde you wanted if you did it twice I use 40 volume developer but I put it in a bag and I watch it because it gets hot. And a hour is a real long time for the color not to lift but I would have to see the wig to advise you what you can do next . Also was the wig black when you bought it because if it was thats a whole other way of lifting the color.Wink

I tried to post some pics of the unit to be of more help but it's not letting me upload them at all. :( More than anything I think I've been had buying a "virgin" wig. I think I might just end up calling it a day on it. I really don't have the patience for it to be honest. I hate doing that though but live and learn you know?

Now in these pics it looks red, but in reality the color is a drab mousy brown. Think a very tired & faded #8 lol.[/IMG]
