Tips to Extend the Life of Your Lace Wigs

You have decided that you want to enhance your looks and have bought one of the lace front wigs. But now you need to know how to look after lace wigs if you are to keep yours in immaculate condition. These costume wigs are comfortable, light in weight and give you a great look. When you first get your hairpiece, put your hands inside it and shake it gently. This will help to slacken and open the hair out. If the hair on the lace wigs is straight, you may use a wig brush through it. If it happens to be a curly hairpiece then you might just run your fingers through the hair on it.

One can wear lace wigs for 6 weeks or up to thirty wears which depends on the kind of adhesive used. If you happen to use your lace front wigs in environments which are harsh like smoky conditions or strong sunlight you need to wash the hairpieces more often. If your hairpiece gets tangles, sticky or appears lifeless, then you know it is time to wash your lace wigs. Since it is just like your hair you will know when you need to do it. Brush your lace front wigs gently working from the bottom up so as to untangle knots if any. You may soak the costume wig for some minutes and wash it thereafter in the washbasin with a wig shampoo. Be sure to never wash the hair like your own hair. The wig should be handled gently and when washing in the basin.

To dry put your lace wigs pat them dry with a towel. Don’t forget that you must never wring the hair, otherwise it could lose shape and the hairs could fall out. Neither should you air dry the lace front wigs or comb them when they are still wet. Make sure you hang the hair pieces to dry on a stand. You can also spray on a wig conditioner and then smoothen it out when dry by using your fingers gently. You must treat your lace wigs with utmost care. You must make sure that you use only wig care products like wig brushes, wig conditioners and wig shampoos that are formulated especially for hair wigs. Very often you might come across products which are promoted as being delicate and gentle like baby care products for instance. But these are not the kind of products that you should use on your hair wigs. You might end up making your lace front wigs dull and even have them losing their color or the hairs could get damaged.

For curly lace wigs, make sure that you do not use hairbrushes which have nylon bristles. The curls will come undone. Also one should keep away from mousse, hairspray as well as permanent hair colors. Keep your wig away from extreme cold or heat temperatures that can make your lace front wigs a mess. Make sure you stay away from hot boiling water, ovens, clothes dryers, barbeques or clothes dryers. Or you can wear a scarf over your head to reduce the effect. If you get caught in the snow, rain or steamy conditions just wait a while for your lace wig to dry out.
