Whether you buy synthetic lace wigs, glueless lace wigs, or any other type of wig, it’s essential that your natural hair is able to breathe. This is essential for hair growth. Wigs that do not allow natural hair to breathe can cause damage to the hair that can be difficult to repair and regrow.
For best results, avoid nylon and cotton caps; these will absorb moisture and that could lead to damaged and dry hair. If you buy lace wigs with netted caps, you will not have this issue.
Also make sure that the caps are comfortable and not too tight. If you use hair clips, install them carefully so they don’t snag hair during removal. Remember that the whole purpose of wearing a wig is to prevent damage and reduce breakage.
Keep your hair moisturized
To avoid drying your natural hair while wearing a wig, it’s important to moisturize. A good quality moisturizer will protect your hair from becoming brittle and dry. Don’t use too much though as this could cause clogged pores and eventually hair loss.
Wrap or braid hair neatly
Folding or balling your natural hair can cause breakage. If you’re having a professional application from a salon they will likely wrap or braid your hair before applying your wig or weave. Never wear your wig over wet or damp hair, as this could cause bacteria or mildew to form.
Wear lace wigs that match your hair texture
The best way to protect your natural hair is to buy lace wigs that match your hair texture. Shop for Afro lace wigs if your hair is curly and you want the best quality lace wigs for black women. These provide tight, kinky curls that mimic the afro style, and will look the most natural.
Shop for yaki lace wigs if you’re going for a fine or straight look; these are available in 100% human hair texture so they achieve the most natural look possible. With many different styles of adhesives, it’s easy to achieve a comfortable fit that will last for weeks.
Kinkylace wigs suit African American women who want tons of curl and a style that won’t quit. These come in a variety of hues, so you can match your natural hair color closely. These provide a seamless look along the hairline and can be styled in any way you wish; you can even part it down the middle.
Matching your natural hair texture with the right style wig will help protect your natural hair from becoming dry, brittle or damaged.
Maintaining your wig
When you buy lace wigs from a reputable designer, you can rest assured that you are buying quality that can’t be matched anywhere else. Part of the reason these are so popular is because they require very little maintenance. Most come ready to wear and don’t need to be styled or colored (most have already been colored and processed). Once applied, they can stay in place for 3 to 4 weeks with a simple daily brushing and/or curling.
With proper maintenance and cleaning, your natural hair will be protected and will grow just as if you weren’t wearing a wig at all.
