hi! i want to potentially dye a wig dark teal blue, but its current color is 27/33, which is like a light honey/strawberry blonde. could i dye it as is, or would i need to bleach it first?

Hi! Is your wig synthetic or human hair?

Human hair: Bleach is for going lighter, not darker, so you probably won’t need to process. However, because of the orangy and yellowy tones in the hair, you may need a use a violet toner before dyeing to get teal you wish.

Synthetic: Can’t be bleached. Must be dyed with fabric dye or ink. While I have never tried to tone synthetic hair, I would assume mimicking the process of toning human hair by using a bit of purple before your teal coloring would effectively cancel out the honey/strawberry tones. If anyone has tried this, feel free to comment.

You're awesome and an amazing person!
