Before proceeding to dye, a human hair wig must be washed thoroughly to clean every strand and remove any unwanted dirt build up from accumulation of dust and oils. After the wig is washed to clear every strand of dirt, it is then let out to dry or blow dried to complete dryness. Next, using a large-tooth comb to segregate the human hair wig into four distinct sections, the hair on the wig is combed through to keep untangled and separated so that they do not run into knots. Using a homemade colouring recipe, empty the colours and mix it in an open bowl with a spatula or mixing spoon. In case one uses a readymade hair colouring kit, it is even easier to follow the instructions given by the manufacturer on the product case and proceed on those directions. However the crux or premises of the entire process remain similar more or less, i.e. diluting the concentrated colouring dye with an appropriate thinning agent. To subtle things out an after colouring conditioner is used on many an occasion. It is advisable and strongly recommended to be wearing gloves while handling hair colour and related chemicals. Also maintaining air circulation and good ventilation may eliminate any chances of suffocation from stagnation of harmful chemicals in the immediate atmospheric system. Carefully drape the wig on mannequin head to ensure complete attention to detail why dyeing. Pulling and tugging the wig at the front to ensure it is secure; the colour in mixed in an open bowl and slowly add colour beginning with the top of the wig. The top of the wig is the origin or root of any wig. When applying dye or hair colour to a wig, it is recommended to always begin at the top and move to cover the rest of the crown. Once arriving at the crown portion of the wig, every section of the hair is segregated and separately coloured or dyed till the entire wig is completed.
Once the entire wig is covered completely in uniform layers and shade of the hair colour or dye, it is allowed to sit back and dry. The drying process is not required more than 25 minutes at the very most. Allowing the dye to sit for over 25 minutes may spoil the finishing look and appeal of the final product. Once the colour has dried off, wash off the excess and remaining by applying a light mask of hair conditioner to the wig for 3 minutes. Dry the wig and rinsing the conditioner off and then proceed to style as desired.
