Rit for natural fibers and fabrics

These dyes are intended for cottons and other natural materials. Some colors will work for synthetic wig dyeing, but for a more reliable color we recommend Rit DyeMore Synthetics or Jacquard iDye Poly. This dye method requires heat to activate, which will remove curls and require some straightening with a flat iron afterwords or re-curling/styling of your wig.

  • If this is your first time dying a wig, start with a Pure White, Silver or other light colored wig depending on your preference. Be sure to purchase additional Color Samples swatches in the same color for testing. Remember, synthetic wigs are not like real hair, you cannot go from a darker color to a lighter one!
  • Following the instructions on the Rit packet, bring water to boil in a large pot and mix in the dye.
  • To achieve the perfect color test out various dye colors and times using your Color Samples before dying your wig.
  • Get your wig wet before carefully placing it in the simmering dye pot.
  • The longer you leave the wig in the dye bath, the darker and more vibrant the color will become! For lighter tints, use a smaller portion of dye.
  • Yes, you can mix the dye packets to get exactly the color you want! Alternatively, you can also experiment with a base wig color other than white or silver. We’ve had some fantastic results using this method.
