How long it may take to dye a wig at home?

It usually takes about 1-2 hours to dye a wig at home, but the time may be longer if your wig is especially long or thick. And if you need to dye your hair into a relatively lighter color, it may take longer cause you need to bleach the human hair wig before dyeing it.

How many times can you dye a human hair wig?

A piece of high-quality human hair wig can be dyed 1-3 times during its longevity. But if you tend to dye into lighter colors that need to bleach before dyeing, maybe you can just dye it 1-2 times. If you keep going darker and darker from the previous color, you may be available to dye it more than three times with proper care.

Which hair color flatter you better?

Feel confused about which hair color can go on well on you? Actually, women with dark skin can almost hold all hair colors well, the only color we suggest to avoid it possibly is that platinum blonde since it looks extremely unnatural with dark skin. The perfect hair color is that a color that can boost your confidence if you feel good with platinum blonde, of course, you can go on with it.

And we more suggest black women pick the red or brown hair colors, cause they look fantastic with dark skin.
