How Can I Repair My Lace Wig

How Can I Repair My Lace Wig

August 09, 2019

Your lace wig is not acquired cheaply for you to take it for granted or throw it away when you find some defects. There are some instances where no matter how well you care for your hairpiece; there will still some possibilities of damage due to uncontrolled factors. For example, wear and tear repairs such as shedding and loss of moisture in the hair due to the environment (e.g. winter) and maintenance.

The following are steps for those of you that attempt to repair your lace wig on your own. The first and most important step you must do is simply clean and wash your wig and allow it to air dry and for convenience and ease place it in the mannequin head. Secondly, inspect the unit for any size holes. If you find any medium to large holes, you can repair it by using a small needle and invisible thread to sew them together and prevent shedding or further tearing. For repairing larger holes, you must purchase an additional piece of lace, apply it on the torn area and stitch around the edges. However if you find that some holes do not require needle or thread, simply apply clear nail polish on the area to avoid further tearing.

Once you have repaired the holes, begin with repairing the loss hair on the lace wig. You will need a ventilation needle and holder, the same quality and texture of hair and magnifying glasses, then place yourself in an area with a lot of white light. Next, grab the hair through the needle and begin ventilating. Remember to single knot the front and double knot elsewhere. The single knots will appear more natural and the double knots will hold longer. Continue to ventilate till to achieve the desired hair density.

If you have a lace front wig that has weft in the back and some of your weft are loose, you can repair it by sewing or gluing them back onto the cap. You can do so by applying a substantial amount of glue to both tracks and press down for a few seconds. Use a hair dryer to dry the bond and wait for at least 24 hours before reusing your unit.

Lastly, if your lace wig has lost its shine, then you can revive it by either deep conditioning it for 1 week and/or reapplying the color of the unit with natural organic dye. But if it has loss its texture then its recommended that you seek a professional wig company and specialist to revive your texture prior to attempting to do it yourself.
