How To Take Care Of Your Lace Front Wigs ?

When you get the new wig, please clean and wash it before installation. Untangle the hair and brush to get rid of dust first. Put lace front wigs under lukewarm water, allowing them to run from roots to ends. Apply the special shampoo for human hair wigs, swear it evenly on your hair and gently, wait for several minutes to rinse clearly. Gently squeeze to remove excess water, never twist/wring your wig. To keep your human hair from drying out and losing its shine, avoid washing it too frequently, you’d better wash your wig less than once a week.

Protect Lace Part From Ruin

For beginners, it’s easy to cut more lace and ruin an entire lace front wig. High-quality HD lace and Swiss lace are common on human hair lace front wigs, but are also hard to recover.
In other words, if you cut off too much lace when you are installing a wig, the hairline appearance will be weird and fake, which is against your original goal. Please slow down and take care of your step at the beginning. In addition, lace is fragile, make sure to apply 13×4 lace front wigs without strong force.
Take Care Of The Hair On The Bed
Dry your hair by air dryer or take some time to dry it by air. Never sleep with wet hair. Wet hair is weaker and easier to tangle and break. It is best not to hold your hair down when sleeping, adjust your sleeping position from lying on your back to lying on your side, or move your hair to one side to avoid hair damage.
