I have so much to share but will not do it in this one little post. I’ll try and break it up through the week-though by then I may have even more to say.
I know this is not a very flattering picture of Lola.
She really did go through a lot when I used her to dye that last wig. Even through all of that she was very kind to model this one for me. I found it at a thrift store for about $3. After dying my first wig I knew I wanted to try red next.
This is what I used to dye the wig. Isopropyl alcohol, acrylic printers ink, a spray bottle, and some gloves and an old towel. If you’re going to do this yourself then make sure you do it in a well ventilated area that you don’t mind getting dirty. Plus you’ll want to do it way in advance of when you need it. I let mine dry for over a day then I rinsed it in cold water and let it dry thoroughly again. Also, I strongly advise catching a tutorial on Youtube. I’m not telling you all you need to know and I want yours to be a happy experience like mine was.
For this size wig I used the entire bottle of ink and alcohol. It didn’t turn out red it’s more pink-
Pretty right? I didn’t know what to expect and when I started spraying it on it didn’t look like it was going to look good at all. I was also surprised that it remained soft and shiny after all that. Wouldn’t it be nice of our own hair could stand all that without drying out?
Listen. I’m really tired. This post is being squeezed out of me and the only reason I will publish it is because it’s way overdue. I promise to try and put a little more life into tomorrow’s. Sound good?
Good. And hey, if you do try this send me a picture.
See you tomorrow-
