Can I Tint Or Dye Human Hair Wigs?

By carefully choosing the right type of wig it’s possible to choose a wig which suits your natural hair. However, sometimes you might not be able to find quite the right color.

Coloring Wigs

It’s possible to color different types of wigs. However, the easiest types of wigs to color are those that are made with natural human hair. This is because the hair can be dyed in the same way as your natural hair.
