Choose the color and mix the dye
Synthetic hair is less durable and has a lower quality than human hair. Hence, it is more difficult to dye synthetic lace front hair than human lace front hair.
First and foremost, you have to make the dye. Mix alcohol-based ink and water in a 1:1 ratio.
You can buy the ink from every craft store. Pour a bottle of ink and the same amount of water into a spray bottle and then mix the contents.
Next, add more water to get a pastel color. Use the ratio 1:1 to get an opaque, vibrant color that’s very similar to the ink color you choose. If you don’t have alcohol-based ink, don’t worry.
You can also use a sharpie marker to use instead. Use the ink tube inside the sharpie marker: pull it out and slice it open. Put this ink tube in the spray bottle and add the same amount of water. Let it stay overnight.
Start to color a synthetic lace front wig
Next, let’s jump into coloring lace front wig. Get a light-colored synthetic wig, you can’t lighten the color of synthetic hair with bleach as you can do with human hair.
Choose a place, put your wig on a wig stand and place it on the table. You can start dyeing the top layer of hair that’s visible when the wig is parted naturally. Use the spray bottle and spray your dye three to five times in one area to coat one section that’s 2 to 3 inches wide.
Dig the root area by your fingers, wiggle them from side to side and then down through the hair. Do it about 2 to 3 times to make sure that the wig is completely coated. Continue the process for every single section of hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to comb through the hair, from roots to tips in order to make it look completely uniform.
Finally, you have to rinse and style your wig. After dyeing the wig, set it outside to dry it totally. The time depends on the thick of the wig, but normally it takes about an hour.
As soon as the wig is dry, rinse it until the water is clear. Spray the hair with a synthetic hair conditioner and comb the wig from the tips to the roots.
Continue doing that until the wig is completely detangled. Try to dry the wig with a hairdryer. Remember, you must use the lowest heat setting. Or you may use a “cool” setting to blow it dry.

Is Human Hair Wig easier to dye?
A human hair wig is much easier to dye than a synthetic wig because you can treat it as the way you treat your own normal hair. You can use the same hair dye, developers, hair conditioners or even the same dyeing tools.
The first step, still, is mixing the dye.
Mix the dye
You can buy the hair dye and developer at every drug store and many other places. Choose a color that is appropriate for you.
You should not try to lighten the hair, because the bleach in lighter hair color can make the hair of the wig weaken.
Additionally, use a plastic bowl and a plastic spoon to mix the dye and the developer.
Try not to use the metal tools because they can oxidize the dye and change its colors. You will know exactly you should use how much dye to combine with the developer. Remember to wear a pair of gloves which can protect your skin from chemicals of dye.
Apply the dye to your wig
The second step is applying the dye. You should test the color of dye on a few strands of hair first. Notably, it’s better to try at a place that is mostly invisible to others.
By doing that, you can try a different color if that one is not as good as you expected. You should wait for about 30 to 40 minutes to see the results.
After the waiting time, if you like this color, soak the lace front wig in the dye. Then, use your hands to scoop gently the dye over the wig and then spread it through the layers of the wig.
After dyeing the wig, put it on a wig stand in order to keep its shape. Use a comb or a hairbrush to help the dye go out of the wig.
The dye should be applied to an entire wig, which will make the dyed hair look natural. Next, after about 30 to 40 minutes, you have to leave the wig to let the color set.
Next, wash your lace front wigs
The next step of coloring lace front wig human hair is to wash it. Remember you should use a color-safe shampoo or a special wig shampoo to make sure that the wig is as great as possible.
Put the dyed wig into warm water to get rid of any excess dye. After washing the shampoo, you need to apply the conditioner to the wig. The conditioner helps the wig be shinier.
Dry the hair with a towel. You have to squeeze gently to remove excess water. Place it back on the stand to dry.
Finally, you can let the hair dry by leaving it on the stand until it is dry completely. Or you can also use a hair dryer on a low setting.
Run the hair dryer up and down through the hair. You should not let the hair overheat because it will have bad impacts on the hair.
