How to Properly Take Care of a Full Lace Wig
This entry was posted on March 25, 2012.
If you haven't checked out the full wigs that are made from Indian human hair on our site, you definitely need to! A lace wig is made by hand and is tied on a lace base one strand at a time. As our site mentions, you can enjoy tangle free Indian Remy hair by purchasing a high quality Full Lace Wig. A wig will give you complete hair coverage and features silky straight Indian hair that you'll love.
Since a full lace wig looks great while being worn, it's important to learn how to take proper care of it so that it will stay in great condition. Thankfully full lace wigs are rather easy to take care of. You can gently wash your lace wig if you've used hair products on it, such as hair spray (which we don't recommend by the way). You also can store your wig on a wig head with T-pins to keep it in ready-to-put-on shape before heading out with your full lace wig on.
Here are some more tips that are a bit more detailed so that you will learn how to take care of your full lace wig:
Keep it Away from Extreme Heat
Like all hair, exposing any hair locks to extreme heat will only damage the ends and dry out your cuticles. So if you place your wig on a wig head, be sure to keep it away from heat. Obviously don't place your wig near a fire, heat vent, or anywhere else where it may be damaged from heat over time. Also, when you are wearing your wig don't expose your locks to heat for a long time either. This means don't sit close to a fire and definitely do not use a hair dryer on your lace wig. It will dry out your hair and cause damage that's hard to repair.
Like all hair extensions, full lace wigs are very much the same. Except with full lace wigs you need to be extra careful when combing out the hair on the wig. Even though the hair is pretty secure in the lace base, it's still important to be cautious. In order to prevent any hair from getting loose, you'll want to start brushing the hair from the ends to the top, without getting too close to the lace base.
Use a Spray Bottle with Luke Warm Water to Wash it
Since your wig isn't attached to your head, you'll need to wash it while it is on the mannequin head. We recommend adding a tablespoon of shampoo to a small spray bottle and filling it with lukewarm water.
After you're done making your mixture you can place your actual wig in cool water and while you're doing this, you will need to spray the wig with the shampoo and warm water combination. Next distribute the shampoo throughout the wig and use a wide-tooth comb to work through your hair.
After the shampoo is evenly dispersed through your wig, it's time to rinse it. Rinse your hair under the cool water and get ready to apply conditioner to the wig next. Now it's time to add a tablespoon of conditioner to a new spray bottle or you can rinse out the shampoo out of the spray bottle and use that instead if that's easier. In the same way you worked through your wig with the shampoo, you'll need to do this with the conditioner.
Once you're done with washing your wig with both shampoo and conditioner, gently rinse it out again for a third time under cool water. Use a towel and gently dry the hair, and afterwords you'll want to let it to dry naturally after you've gotten most of the water out. Don't rub the hair strands against one another - pat dry the hair to prevent any hair breakage from happening.
We hope these tips have helped you understand how to care for your full lace wig. If you take care of it properly it will last you a long time! So be gentle and loving with your perfect locks! ;)
