Bleaching mohair

Has anyone ever tried to bleach a mohair wig? Any tips on how to do it? I can’t find a pale blond Mikayla wig anywhere. I have the blond wig, but it is much darker than I wanted. Tips? Should I not try? What product would you suggest? How can I make it shiny looking and not just dull blonde? I don’t use wigs much and am not thrilled with the selection. Can anybody suggest a different partial capped wig that would be similar in effect to the Mikayla?

Sorry no tips from me I’d be scared to, how blonde do u need? I have some really pale mohair looks almost white when rooted if that will help

I wonder if someone at a beauty supply place could help you. I bet they dye wigs all the time, and have the products to accomplish it right. Good luck.

I already have the largest size @october; Also have the Cassidy and it doesn’t work.
Good thought @Luvbaby
@Angel Thank you for offering the mohair, but I need to wig this one. It’s a toddler and I’m not trying to make it super realistic.

I’m not too worried about destroying this wig, so I may experiment with lightening it. Maybe I’ll let my daughter try. She’s always lightening the tips of her hair.

I have no tips for you. :confused: I hope your daughter can help. Let us know how it goes.

If it works, I’ll post a picture. She’s house sitting for two weeks so it won’t be for awhile unless I figure out how to do it.

Good luck! I hope it works out. I’ve always been curious about dying mohair but never really thought of bleaching it. I tried looking around on Google to see if I could find anything that might help you. I saw this- someone asked a similar question about this on another forum- so maybe it might be of some help.

I have decided not to do it after all. I’ll keep looking for a pale blonde wig, but the only other one I found was an Ellie wig and it’s a full cap and doesn’t appear to come in the larger sizes. I need a minimum of 15-16. I would prefer larger. I may just resign myself to going with the darker blonde. It’s not bad, I just wanted very, very blond.

Oh you did so much work Anita. Thank you. Unfortunately none of them work although the short one is very cute! That is the right color though but I need very wispy curls like the Mikayla wig. I’m just giving up and going with the blonde that is darker than I had hoped. Otherwise I will have to root this head and I don’t really want to, plus, I have yet to achieve really nice wispy curls when I root.
