Step 3: Apply the dye to the hair. Starting from the bottom of the wig, take sections of hair and brush the dye from roots to tips. After you've applied it to one section, let it loose and move on to the next section. Repeat this technique for each section of hair gently and slowly. Try not to rub the dye roughly into the wig.
