I still have curls that I did three months ago. I do not put my wig in the water though I put it in a strainer over the boiling water. I switch up my wigs though.

I have a wig that's already a light color but waaaaayyy to straight for me.  I want to give it a textured curly look because I'm in love with the color but haven't had the best luck getting the curl without leaching out the color.  I've ruined the color of 2 wigs trying....Once boiling and one just with a blow dryer on dampened hair with setting lotion.  I got the curls but the color just came off :'(  Any experience/advice with curling a colored wig on the best method without leaching the color away????

I dyed a unit - I did use perm rods but kept a eye on the situation. I boiled the unit for about 3 hours to bring a bit of life back to a body wave.

Ladykmp, I learned how to boil a LF from YouTube videos.  The first time I did it, I was unsatisfied with the wave and boiled it for a longer period of time.  You need to use olive oil and a conditioner in the water.  I used foil instead of wave rods because one person on YT said they become soft.

Your best bet is to use an old unit first, watch a bunch of YT videos and cross your fingers.

Good luck!Thumbs Up

Oh and thanks everyone for the "boil then dye" suggestion.Smile

The dye will definitely come out when you boil it. Boil first then color it.
