How To Take Care Of Your Lace Front Wig

Lace front wigs started as a fashion accessory for the elite when it was first developed. Mostly made of human hair and each strand is meticulously hand-tied, explaining the high costs for each unit. However, its popularity quickly caught fire thanks to its great advantages.

Depending on the quality of hair, prices vary. The length, the style and the color also pose as deciding factors to each unit, as they are individually priced. Choosing what kind of pure human hair depends on your personal preference. Proper care techniques for these lace front units also depend on things mentioned above.

Human hair lace units have to be carefully taken care of. A good shampoo is needed in order to maintain the texture and the shine of your hair pieces. This is also needed to moisturize, untangle and condition the hair, just like your own hair. However, getting the right shampoo is vital and you can achieve that by understanding the texture of your lace wig. Some shampoos are specialized for curly hair, silky straight or colored locks. Getting the correct one is important to ensure care is maximized on your hair piece.

There are also some shampoo and conditioner brands with a special formulation for specific hair styles. There are also hair sprays to give you ease whenever you want to style your lace front wig. Ordinary shampoos can be used as an alternative. These hairs are specially-manufactured to withstand a certain amount of heat, so it can be curled with a curling iron. A better way to curl your locks is to use steam set curls.

Washing your lace front wig once every two weeks is ideal. However, if you notice the strong smell on your piece, and you have only worn it for a few times, then it is okay to wash it more frequently. This depends on environmental factors, like dust and smoke. You can fill up a sink with cold water and add in a tablespoon of shampoo. Then you can swish in your wig to give it a good lather. But you must not over wash your unit, so a good 5 minutes is okay. Draining and blotting it gently with a towel will help the drying process move along bit more quickly.
