    ive tried this. My wig is not as it was before. Its not super dry and fluffy and curly. It was straight. Will straitening work???? Or is it too hot for the wig? And how do i fix the fluffiness and dryness?

    Awesome thanks :) I have a kairi (kh wig) that needs to be darkened. I chose a rit dye from joanns. I just hope its gonna make it darker.

    That looks really good! So you mentioned that the lighter dyes don't work, can you get the hair darker with the darker dyes or does it come out light no matter how long you dye the hair for?

    nope the longer you leave the hair in dye the darker it will come out. I am not sure if it is the same deal with the synthetic dyes however they may work differently.

    you can also darken hair with coffee and tea
