Or we can use the highlighted color, which is basically one color as a “base color”, and then add the highlight at the top.

Have you ever run into the problem of your hair system taking on a slight orange shade for seemingly no reason at all? A lot of people have experienced this. This is common, and it can happen to your own natural hair too. Hairpiece oxidation is the main culprit for your hair system loses color over time. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that happens whenever your hair system is exposed to oxygen and ultraviolet rays which is also known as UV light. When these UV light rays make contact with the oxygen molecules on your hair system, it affects the color hues.

Exposure to the sun will slowly hurt your hair replacement system. It damages the outer layer of your hair system, which causes its original tone to become a duller, red color. For this reason it is recommended that you keep your hair replacement system out of the sun if you can — try using a hat, cap or scarf.

It is possible to use the same developer, hair dye, and tools like those you use for your own natural hair. All you need to do is mix the dye – apply it to the hair system – wash the hairpiece after you finish dyeing it to ensure it stays clean as well as being shiny. Here we have compiled a list of tips that will allow you to dye your hair system without needing an expert!

You Will Need:

 Aluminum gloves A styrofoam model head
Toothed comb Plastic Cup
Dry and clean towel Hair dye
Gloves Leave-in conditioner
Running tap water Shampoo


*Before your start: Make sure you are in a well-lit room, this will help you to judge the color more accurately, as well as ensure that you can see what you’re doing. Natural light is best. Wash the piece and allow it to air dry completely before starting the dyeing process.

Step 1: Prepare the Styrofoam Head

We recommend using a styrofoam head as it allows you to easily manage your hair replacement system. If using it, cover the styrofoam head with aluminum foil by molding it tightly which protects the hair system, and allows you to use it again the next time you want to color your hair.

Next, place the hair replacement system on the styrofoam head and make sure that it is properly secured. Then, brush or comb your hair system gently to remove any possible tangles.

Step 2: Choose A Hair Dye for Your Hair System

First and foremost, you have to pick up hair dye. There are no typical products for human hair replacement systems, so you can pick up a normal hair color which is available at the drug store and many other places in your area.

You can apply this method on how to dye a human hair system lighter or darker. However, we don’t recommend lightening the hair as you have to bleach the hair before dying which makes the hair system weaken.

Step 3: Mix the Dye

When coloring your hair replacement system, it's okay to use a color that is one or two shades lighter than your desired final result. This is because non-growing hair is more porous than growing hair, which causes it to take up color more easily. Selecting the right tone will get you closer to a match for your own hair color.

Once you choose the color, you can start to mix your dye, doing this in exactly the same way as you would use for dying your own natural hair.

Step 4: Apply the Dye

Make sure that you have your gloves on, this step is a messy one!

With your gloves now on, grab the comb and use it to work the dye into your hair system, start from the top of your hair system and work your way down. Take care to apply the dye to the hair only, not the base to which it is attached, otherwise it will cause an unwanted stain.

Step 5: Wait for the Color to Take

Now it's time for the dye to do its magic! You have to wait for a couple of minutes, with the exact amount of time-varying based on the type of dye you have chosen, so check the guidelines on the product before starting the process.

When you've checked that your dye is almost ready, (in accordance with the time stated on the guidelines!) you can start to do regular color check-ups. Squeeze the hair gently to remove some of the moisture to do this, remember that the dry color will be a shade lighter than the wet.

Step 6: Rinse Your Hair Replacement System

Once you have the desired color for your hair system, it's time to rinse it out. Gently remove it from the styrofoam head and rinse it with warm water. Rinse upside down so the color will flow through the base first to avoid getting any dye on it.

After you have rinsed your hair system, you can finish cleaning the hairpiece with a little bit of shampoo and washing once you're done.

Step 7: Dry Your Hair Replacement System

Now that we've rinsed our hair system, it's time to dry it! Use a soft towel or an old t-shirt to dry your hair system so as to avoid damage. Remember, do this slowly and smoothly, we don't want to cause any tangles!

Step 8: Final Touch

For best results we recommend that you use a leave-in conditioner. This will seal the color into your hair system and add moisture. After conditioning it, you can proceed to smoothly brush your hair — with a comb or brush that is safe for your hairpiece
