Wig Transformation: Blonde Wig To Silver Wig
Oct 30,2023 | Bella
Ⅰ. Why choose a blonde wig?
Isn't it possible to dye a brown or black wig into a silver wig? From a responsible point of view, I would certainly recommend that you do not use these dark wigs for coloring. There are several main reasons for this.
1. First, the color we are dyeing is silver, which is the lightest color available, which means we need to strip as much pigment from the original hair as possible so that the silver dye will work and you can get the color you are happy with.
2. Secondly, it is not impossible to use a black or brown wig, but you have to take the risk of trying it with bad results. That means you need to do an extra step and bleach the black or brown color. The bleaching process is very damaging to the internal structure of the wig and will leave your hair incredibly frizzy and dry.
So why choose blonde wig to dye into a sliver wig? Because blonde wig has a very light color, such as 613 wigs can be dyed directly without bleaching, so you can also save the time and effort spent on bleaching your hair. If you have been to a hairdresser for coloring, then you must be very clear about this, because when your hair is dark, the hairdresser will first bleach your hair to yellow, which means that the original melanin in your hair will be bleached out before other dyes can be applied.
Ⅱ. How to change blonde wig to silver wig?
1.Wash the blonde wig
Take out a slightly larger container and prepare some water, warm or cold depending on your preference, then use shimmer lights shampoo, squeeze it evenly into the container and put your blonde wig into the shampoo-filled container, soaking and washing as much of your wig as possible.
shimmer lights shampoo is a protein color-enhancing shampoo that effectively lightens the brassiness of your blonde wig, which means it will bring your blonde wig closer to the color of silver and keep your hair light and bright.
2. Apply the dye to the wig
Take out the container of colorant and mix them evenly.
wella color charm helps to bleach out any unattractive gray-yellow or orange streaks left in the hair, and if you don't know how to buy the color, it is recommended that you choose the opposite color of the color you want on the color wheel, so when you need to turn blonde wig into silver wig, you need to choose cooler colors, such as yellow tones can be offset with purple toner. After mixing well apply your toner evenly on your wig, remember to wear gloves before applying to avoid adverse effects on your hands.
For this step of applying the toner, you need to do it quickly and use a top-to-bottom technique.
3. Tidy up the silver wig
In this step you can clearly feel the blonde wig has turned into a silver color, you will place the wig on the wig stand and wait for it to dry.
When the silver wig is dry, take out a small portion of the moisturizing gel, and spread it evenly on your hands and then on your hair.
