 Considerations before dyeing

 After you have chosen to dye your wigs instead, there are certain things you should consider before dyeing your wigs like; the color of dye to use, the type of dye to use. For example you shouldn't not use a dye meant for human hair wig for synthetic wig and vice versa.

Because that is the first thing people will notice before asking whether the wig is human hair wig, synthetic wig, full lace wig or whether it is expensive or not. So you have to make sure the color looks nice and beautiful. Many of you will be asking, how do I know which color is the best? For you to choose the best color, you have to know the following things:

  • Preference: To chose the best color,the first thing is you have to know what you want, or what you like and what co lour looks good on you. You can't just enter a store without already knowing what you want to buy.

  • Skin color:  Another thing you have to bear in mind is your skin color, in other words, what color of wig matches your skin color  If you're light skinned, it will be preferable for you to go for a light color. If you are dark skinned, it is preferable for you to go for a dark color. Just make sure the color you choose matches the color of your skin.

  • Fashion trend: One of the purposes of rocking any fashion style is to be in vogue. So, if you want to get the best color for your wigs, you should check out the latest wig colors.

  • Hot weather: You should know that there are some colors that absorbs heat while there are some colors that repels heat. Dark colors absorbs more heat than lighter colors.
