Pitfalls and Failures of DIY Coloring


Hello Good Peoples,

I figured I would share with you some hits and misses when it comes to dying hair/wigs/weaves.  I do not dye my natural hair, but I do have a thing for changing up my wigs and giving them a funky look.  Sometimes I just get tired of looking at a solid color and want to give it pizazz.

Here are a few things that worked for me and that I am sure to do:

Brush Out hair with a loop brush
Use Detangler to ensure no tangles

To lighten I use:

Clairol Born Blonde Maxi

To darken I use:

Clairol Nice and Easy

I will typically draw a diagram and plan how I want the wig to look and then place it on the wig head.  If I am only dying sections, I will clip and tie off the hair I do not plan to dye.

As the wigs set in the color, if it is a nice day  - I will set them out on the back porch and let the natural light and heat continue to assist the bleaching process.  I ensure to check periodically on the coloring process since I know exactly what I want the color to look like.

I will wash in cool water and use the coloring shampoo and conditioner.  I will always make sure to seal the knots and let the unit air dry.

I show you in the video products that just simply did not work for me.

  1. For the platinum lace wig, how long did you leave the clairol on for? I'm going for the ombre effect and I was wondering how long I should wait for the bleach to take to the wig.
