, there are a few items that you must have to properly maintain it. However, many companies are mass advertising useless products which do very little for your lace wig. Here is the real scoop on what are must have's versus junk.
A Lace Wig
Obviously, you will need a quality lace wig. The question is which type is the right one for you? This entirely depends on your reasons for buying the lace wig and your daily lifestyle. Some women are very active and do not have time to deal with blending their own hair and lace wig hair which is typically Virgin Indian Remy. For those who are crunched for time, a full lace wig
with a durable cap is best. Swiss lace may be very fine and very realistic but one wrong adjustment to the lace and it may be damaged.
If you are someone who needs constant change in their hair but loves length, a lace frontal wig
is a great investment. The lace frontal can be installed in conjunction with an average hair weave. The lace frontal will allow you to wear it for as long as you want and then take it out to clean or simply let your scalp breathe. You can do all of this without having to remove the whole head of hair.
A hair/scalp protectant is a very important product that many women feel they can pass on. If you are going to apply glue or tape near your hairline and onto your skin, wouldn't you want to insure your hair and skin safety?
Far too many lace wig novice and amateur lace wig stylists have horror stories because of skipping this product. The purpose of this product is to protect your scalp and hair from being torn out or damaged by chemicals in the glue or tape. The scalp protectant also helps to protect against natural skin oils weakening the adhesive bond.
Lace cleanser vs. regular soap
As real as a lace wig may seem, it is never exactly like the real thing. While you may wash your own hair with regular shampoo or baby soap for sensitive scalps, lace wigs need a special soap for long lasting wear. If you decided to use a sensitive scalp shampoo made for human hair, it may dull the color of a lace wig.
The benefits of a lace cleanser go beyond nurturing the hair itself. Since lace wigs are bonded by glue or tape, the adhesive needs to be removed gently but thoroughly. Lace wig cleansers help to nourish the hair while removing excess adhesive. Keeping the lace on a lace wig intact and clean is the best way to maintain your wig for longer usage.
Adhesive remover is very different from a lace wig shampoo. The lace wig shampoo cleanses the hair and lace indirectly while an adhesive remover rids the scalp, hair, and lace from residue. Lace wig adhesive remover is heavy duty and is the best way to remove glue or tape residue.
Many women try to save money by using alcohol to remove glue. While this works on small areas where you might have accidentally spilled glue, for large areas it will only cause irritation and hair damage. The amount of alcohol and pulling at the hairline will tear out hair and only remove a minimal amount of glue.
These products are good to purchase for basic lace wig application and removal. Whether you will be purchasing a full lace wig or lace front, these products are good to buy in advance for hair health and lace wig longevity.
