How to Dye a 1B Full Lace Wig
You can dye human hair wigs the same way you would dye your own hair. (dummy image by Vladimirs Koskins from Fotolia.com)

Lace wigs are wigs where the hair ties to a lace base. Human hair usually composes these wigs, although some utilise synthetic hair. They are available in a variety of colours, styles and lengths, allowing you to change your hair at a moment's notice without actually doing anything to it. If you have a 1B lace wig, which is an almost-black wig, and wish to change the colour, you can easily dye it. You can use boxed dye from your local drugstore for human hair wigs. Synthetic wigs, however, require all-purpose or fabric dyes as it doesn't hold pigment like human hair.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the wig on the wig stand.

  2. 2

    Gently comb the wig. Separate the hair into four sections and clip three up using the hair clips.

  3. 3

    Put on the rubber gloves. Mix the hair dye per the manufacturer's instructions. Remember, if you are using a synthetic wig, you should use fabric or all-purpose dyes, as synthetic hair doesn't take pigment the same way human hair does.

  4. 4

    Apply the hair dye to the first section of hair using the applicator bottle. When it is fully covered and even, unclip another section and apply the dye. Apply the hair dye to all four sections evenly and try not to get any dye on the lace.

  5. 5

    Wait the amount of time the instructions say to (usually 20 to 30 minutes).

  6. 6

    Rinse the hair dye out in a sink. Keep rinsing until the water turns clear. Comb the wig and style it.
