HELP?: Need a Human Hair Wig & wanna color it PINK myself!

Post by FahrLight » Mon Jan 04, 2010 6:32 pm

Hey, there!

I am new. and I hope I don't damage any rules by posting this here (checked the rules double.)
I am a crazy hair-dyer. And my hair is so damaged, I can't go on with this.

So I planed to get me a HUMAN HAIR WIG. AND color it myself in Direcions-Carnation-Pink.
Now I tried to find out on the internet how to do it. But in fact no one seemes to know how.
Also I've found out that VIRGIN and REMY-Wigs are cover with some sort of portection, so you can't color them with directions.

My questions is now? How can I re-create my look with ha human hair wig?!
WHo can help me please!?

yupp, this is my REAL hair! Poor thing!

Thank you all very much!

Why not buy a pink wig from Ebay?

Cuz they got NO human hair wigs in pink. Only synth. And I can't iron them and use hairspray and so.

Think about it. Your hair is damaged because you straighten it and use a ton of hairspray.

Human hair wigs are expensive.

You will ruin the wig, just like your hair.

I've seen a ton of synth pink wigs on Ebay in the style you have in the photo.

Have you considered buying dyeable human hair weft yourself and stitching it to a wig base to create your own wig? "Remy" hair is supposed to be cuticle-intact human hair, what is this "protection" you talk of on human hair wigs? IKS sells dyeable human hair weft that is designated as Remy; it is also worth contacting Candy Acid, who has a business based on dyeing human hair weft, for information on this count. You might also consider that any wig is going to be needed to be treated much more delicately than a head of hair when you need to wash all that hairspray and product out of it in order to style it again. Are you sure a wig will hold up to such harsh treatment? Dyeing it is fine, and flatironing to an extent, but washing a human hair wig probably requires very careful treatment so any not to pull out the hair from the weft or dislodge the wefts themselves. If you're spraying it with all sorts of products and needing to shampoo this buildup out all the time the wig will probably degrade even faster than your real hair.

The only coating I know of on Remi hair prevents bleach from lightening the hair further. You can dye human hair/remi wigs. However I pointed out it's cheaper to get a pre-styled synth wig.

Buy a remi/remy wig in a light color like #60 or #613. For deep pinks and reds, slightly darker shades like #22 will work as well, but be careful not to go too dark or you'll end up with more of a raspberry or burgundy version of whatever color dye you're using.

Try to find one that's straight instead of flipped out like in the picture -- if it's styled, there are products on it that are holding it in place, and you don't want that if you're going to be dying anything.

Pin the wig onto a wig head. It will be a messy pain in the neck if you try dying it while holding the wig in your hand, so it needs to be firmly mounted on something.

If the wig has wefts, I'd recommend applying the dye with a tint brush to each section individually (so start at the bottom, clip the rest out of the way, and work your way up). If it's a hand tied lace deal, just part the hair and work in small sections.

Once you rinse the dye out and let it dry completely, style the wig. Store it on a wig head to keep it from losing its shape; the more you style it, the more damage you'll do to it.
