Wigs have become more and more sophisticated using real natural hair. But in the end, do we know how to take good care of her hair in a wig?
In this article, we reveal all the tips and techniques to keep your natural lace wig, while keeping it as long as possible!
To begin, let’s discover together the different types of lace front wigs!
What are the different types of lace wigs?
We have two types of lace wig: the lace front wig and the full lace human hair wigs.
Lace front wig:
It is a complete wig on which the hair is stitched one by one on the tulle at the level of the frontal part only and the rest of the wig being made up of a simple cap as on a classic wig.
Full lace wig
The hair is stitched one by one in the form of tulle all over the head. The natural effect here is therefore more pronounced and in this way we can lift our hair from behind and make it into buns that will look totally natural.
A wig needs to be maintained over time
After a certain time of use your wig will age and without maintenance you risk losing all the shine of the first days of use!
It is important to learn how to take care of it so that it remains in perfect condition. Fortunately we have good news, lace wigs are quite easy to maintain!
We are going to give you simple tips that will allow you to bring your lace wig to life for longer.
For example, you can carefully wash your lace wig using hair products; we do not recommend the use of cheap sprays as they risk damaging the shine of the hair in the long term.
Another thing you can do is keep your wig on a wig head or mannequin with pins to keep it in shape and ready to put on.
How to choose the right care for your lace wig?
Whether the lace wig with glue or without glue, it requires the same regular maintenance.
Choosing your treatment requires respecting the answers to the following questions:
How to wash your lace wig before wearing it?
Washing your wig refers to applying a conditioner, also called conditioner, and based on natural components such as aloe Vera or coconut oil.
Then rinse your wig with cold or lukewarm water (avoid high temperatures) then dry it with a dryer or with a towel, then brush it with a flat brush.
It should be noted that it is best to wash your lace wig once, maximum twice a week (wash only when you feel it really dirty or greasy).
What products should you use to care for your laces?
A conditioner or conditioner based on natural components such as aloe vera or coconut oil.
Always favor products containing vitamin E and high-quality natural hair moisturizers and conditioners.
A water-based moisturizing spray/lotion
A non-greasy oil to hydrate your hair and make it shine (I recommend argan oil)
How to untangle your lace wig?
You should use a paddle brush and only comb the hair when it is dry.
Thus summarized, the choice of care for your lace wig requires compliance with the instructions provided above when purchasing your products.
Tips to remember
Always rid your lace of the glue from the last pose before washing it for the new pose.
To maintain the quality of your hair, it is also recommended to do at most 6 weeks (without alternating with another lace) with your lace.
Gently remove your glue lace so as not to damage it, using 90° alcohol, C22 type solvents or olive oil.
Tie your hair before bed
Avoid coloring and straightening your laces
Store your laces in a closet or in a satin bag.
What is the lifespan of a lace wig?
Since it is made up mostly of real hair, we have to maintain it like our own hair. So if we apply the appropriate care regularly it will keep its shine and beauty for a lifespan ranging from 12 to 18 months and even more. It is therefore essential to perform the best care so that our lace wig always retains its softness, suppleness, shine and beauty.
