Wigs are a way to change your look or try a different hairstyle without actually altering your own hair. Wigs can be made from either human hair or synthetic material. If the wig is synthetic, the hair is made from fine plastic and cannot accept permanent color, such as hair dye. If you have a synthetic wig and want to change the color of the hair, you will need to create your own color solution using permanent markers and rubbing alcohol.
Purchase permanent markers in your desired shade.
Cut the top off the marker to remove the plastic covering and expose the inside ink stick.
Remove the ink stick and slit the clear plastic covering using your sharp knife.
Place the ink stick in the spray bottle and fill the spray bottle with rubbing alcohol. Leave 3 inches of space at the top of the bottle.
Replace the top of the spray bottle and shake vigorously.
Cut open additional markers and add the ink sticks to the spray bottle until you are happy with the shade. Adding additional ink sticks will make the color darker. If you want the color to be lighter, add more rubbing alcohol.
Put on rubber gloves to protect your hands from the color mixture.
Spray the wig with the color mixture until it is fully saturated. Allow the wig to dry completely. If you are happy with color, wash the wig in cold water to set the shade. If you would like it to be darker, apply more color mixture.
