Lace wigs require just as much, if not more, attention for care and maintenance than any other types of wigs. The lace wigs are available in various types and formats. These wigs are made up either of synthetic hair fiber or real human hair. The real hair wigs have the hair cuticle intact within the fiber. This gives it a very natural appearance. However, with improper wig care, you will only accelerate the ruining of this outlook.
Lace wigs have a lace cap for people to attach the wigs to their hairline. These caps attract dirt, oil and have adhesive stuck to it. Without knowing the correct technique and frequency, you might end up harming the quality of your hair wig. Therefore, here are a few tips to help you keep up the high-end maintenance of your lace wigs.
First, when you go in to a wig store, make sure to check for the brand and the type of hair fiber used for the wig. This is important and the very foundation of your entire wig care. Now, your hair care should start with the hair, which is obviously attached and knotted within the lace cap. This hair is the most vulnerable because it comes in direct contact with your scalp and the adhesive. Use a protective sealant to seal the hair in this area. The sealant will protect these hairs from damage and over time, they will not easily break away due to brushing the tangles out of them.
Just brush your lace front wig and then use the sealant to spray on the inner ling of the lace. Allow the sealant time to dry before you begin with the adhesive procedure. You can frequently reapply, to maintain the health of your lace wig.
Use a silk scarf or bonnet on your lace wig, if you are going out in a harsh weather. The cuticle of the hair fiber of the wig will react just as much with the harsh weather as not.
Use a wide tooth comb always after use of the lace wig. Use the comb to detangle the wig and always brush it down before storing it. This will prevent you precious time during the next time you have to wear it. Also, this will prevent hair from your wig to break away the next time due to tangles having settled in. make sure to use formulated shampoo and conditioner after a period of use of the wig. This will keep it clean of dirt and oil and keep the hair smooth.
