Lace front human hair wigs have a lot of benefits as mentioned above, but it’s important to keep a few things in mind to ensure that your scalp and natural hair bundles remain healthy under your frontal lace hairdo.
1.Check your wig.
Always take a moment to examine any new lace front wigs prior to wearing. Check the smell and texture, check the fabric it’s made with, and if you think anything is off, make sure to wash it before you wear it.
2.Properly secure your natural hair.
wigs for black women are applied with an adhesive, so make sure that all of your natural hair is properly flattened and secured under a cap prior to putting any adhesive on your forehead or edges.
3.Remember to still care for your own hair.
Lace front wigs can be worn regularly and it is easy to forget to maintain your own hair. Remember to remove your wig weekly and give your own hair some tender loving care in the form of deep conditioning, scalp exfoliating and moisturizing. This ensures that your natural tresses stay loved, hydrated, moisturized and clean under your human hair lace front wig.
4.Use the right glue.
While not all lace front wigs require glue it is important to apply glue properly when worn. There are adhesives that are created specifically for front lace wigs, and not all of them are safe. Also, if you plan to be in the water, the adhesive you use will be different than a dry use adhesive. Make sure you patch test any glue prior to full application and make sure you always use a skin protector prior to application.
5.Learn and practice gentle removal.
Snatching a wig off might look fun on the internet or in movies, but in reality, front lace wigs should be removed as carefully as they are applied. You should always use an adhesive remover to soften the glue prior to attempting to remove the wig from your scalp. Don’t rush the process, if you face resistance, apply more remover and try again.
