It's still helpful to know what wig you're looking to dye, and for what character. As stated, red dye tends to bleed a LOT so getting a vibrant red most likely isn't going to happen. Second, Five Wits wigs are made with the same fiber as Arda's, which dye pretty well with some things and not so much with others. Third, any styling the wig has probably isn't going to stay through the dying process, especially if you're trying to get red to stick, so you'll have to style it anyway.
People are just trying to help. As stated, red is a hard color and there's a good chance you'll only get a darker reddish-pink, especially if starting with a pale pink.
