Lace front wigs have been steadily increasing in popularity; women have the opportunity to explore different styles without having to commit to a permanent or not easily reversible change. The great thing about wigs is the ability to have perfect and natural looking hair every day. However, it is important to extend the life span of your wig by following a steady regime for hair maintenance. Here are three tips to help you care for your lace form wigs.
Use the Right Products
The products you use in your wig maintenance routine play a huge factor in the end result in your wig condition and its ultimate look. A large amount of products sold in at your local beauty supply or drug store have a very high alcohol content which encourages tangling by creating a high alkaline pH. For ideal wig unit care, you will need to invest in products that have an acidic pH balance; this makes the hair optimum for styling and in turn easier to manage. Do not risk damaging your hair just because products are convenient. Ensure the longevity of your wig by viewing the ingredients before you purchase.
Wrap It Up
There is nothing worse than going to bed with a spectacular and tangle free hair style only to wake up with the most frightening, and not to mention matted, head of hair. Gently comb out your unit before bed time and carefully tie a silk or satin scarf and your head to prevent the tangling, breakage and shedding that happens after a night of tossing and turning. If you are loathe to ruin a hair style or have difficulty wrapping the curlier kind of hair styles, invest in a stain cap or a satin pillow case. Not only will it enable you to sleep without the worry of tangles or breakage, but you will also be maintain the moisture that cotton made pillow cases strip from your hair.
Let It Air Dry
The temptation to bombard your freshly washed wig with bout of heat is completely understandable, especially when you are in a rush or attempting to maintain some sort of style. However, excessive heat is just as bad for your wig health as it is for your natural hair; air drying your wig can guarantee that your hair is as dry as possible and prevents any damage, breakage or shedding that heat can encourage. If you feel like putting heat in your hair even after you are done air drying, then invest in a quality heat protectant, this will protect your unit from the worst of the heat and limit the amount of damage that is done to the unit.
