Life Span of Your Lace Wig


Cleanliness
Keep the hair Clean. It is recommended that the hair be washed at least once every two weeks with warm or cold water. Please wash the hair right after swimming and comb the hair after spa activities and exercising etc… When dirt accumulates, including sweating, hair tangles!
 Shampoo/Conditioning
It is best to wash the hair with the unit removed, this will prevent premature slippage.
 With Unit Removed
Remove unit and place on a Styrofoam mannequin. Rinse hair in the same direction as the flow of the water. Apply shampoo/conditioner in hands, lather and pat on the hair. Use a large tooth comb or wig brush and distribute shampoo/conditioner on the hair. Rinse the hair in the same direction of the water.. NEVER RUB THE HAIR TOGETHER this will cause tangles and matting. Allow the hair to dry and style as usual.
 With Unit On
Dilute shampoo with water (50/50) into a spray bottle. Spray shampoo onto scalp. Press and slide shampoo into the Full Lace Wig from the root to the ends with a large tooth comb or wig brush; press with palms and squeeze the shampoo through the ends. For best results use moisturizing shampoo. NEVER RUB or RUFFLE the hair or tangling will result. Lean backward with the hair flowing in the direction of the shower water and rinse with lukewarm (not hot) water. Use a deep penetrating moisture and conditioner. Leave on for 3-5 minutes. Avoid using conditioners near attachment site as adhesive may detach prematurely. Or use a dry shampoo.
 Detangling
Make sure you comb the hair after each wash and daily. When detangling the hair, please start from the ends and work up little by little to the scalp. Hold the base with the other hand to keep it from shedding or causing root tension. We recommend a large tooth comb or wig brush. Avoid using shine products on the root area as it may prematurely detach your Hair Grafting
Sleeping
Make a couple of big braids in your hair when going to sleep, swimming or exercising. You MUST untangle your hair prior to braiding. NEVER sleep on wet hair, your hair must be completely dry before going to sleep as sleeping on wet Full Lace Wigs WILL cause hair to be very matted. Or wear up in a very high pony tail which works for most curly or wavy units.
 Chlorine and Salt Water
Chlorine and salt water have been known to damage hair used in Full Lace Wigs. Please understand that chlorinated pools, Jacuzzis, saunas and ocean water can cause irreparable damage to the hair that you have purchased and/or wearing and that a Full Lace Wig Specialist can not be held responsible if you decide to ignore such warnings. Also you have been advised not to expose your my Full Lace Wig excessively to chlorinated and/or salt waters and do so at your own risk.
 Chemical Usage
It would be advisable NOT to chemically treat this hair yourself. Chemically treating the Full Lace Wig hair yourself may cause irreparable damage to your own and your Full Lace Wig.

Shedding

Some hair will shed out of some Full Lace Wigs easier than others. Curly and longer hair will commonly shed hair more rapidly than a short Lace Front Wig. Shedding of hair is considered very normal.
Slippage
During the life of your Full Lace Wig hairstyle, your Full Lace Wig may slip. To help avoid this, constantly apply firm pressure on the attachment site, especially after showering. This will help the attachment stay firmly attached to the scalp area. In the event of your Full Lace Wig slipping or lifting, you can successfully re attach using a small amount of “Retouch Adhesive”, wait 4 minutes for it to cure, and then press firmly.
 
Wavy Hair/Curly Hair
For wavy or curly hair, we recommend you wet the hair every morning with water and Protein Leave-in Detangler.

Dry Ends
To keep hair from dryness, please apply olive oil two to three times weekly prior to shampooing. Olive oil left on the hair overnight on the ends only is very effective. Remember Lace Front Wig hair does not have the benefit of your own natural scalp oils, so olive oil will help to replace those necessary oils in the hair shaft.

All of the Following Can Cause Premature and Excessive Hair Loss:

Excessive Combing or Brushing
This will ultimately break off hair and cause premature thinning of the hair replacement.

Unattended Matting And Tangling
Left uncorrected, excessive matting and tangling that is then removed forcefully will tighten the matted hair and tear out the hair.

 
Friction
From pillows or overly aggressive shampooing will break off the hair and thin and tear out the hair.
 
Over-Perming/Incorrect Perming
This will damage the integrity of the hair, especially in lighter colored hair replacements, and will lead to accelerated hair breakage and thinning.

Conditioners Remaining In The Root Area
This is probably the single largest factor creating major, ongoing, irreversible hair loss. Conditioners that are allowed to be absorbed onto the base and gather around the root system will ultimately prevent the root system from pivoting 360 degrees allowing for hair loss in your hair replacement. Conditioners must be rinsed out completely to avoid the breakage of the root system. Read your care instructions carefully to learn the proper application and removal for conditioning
 
If tangling from excessive friction occurs, comb it out immediately and gently with our rotating tooth comb, using a small amount of our Detangler or conditioner. Try using a silk or satin pillow case to avoid the friction of cotton pillowcases. If you must go swimming in chlorinated water, immediately rinse your hair when leaving the pool, then gently shampoo and condition with recommended products. For coloring and perming, try using “Semi Permanent” colors that use little or no peroxide. Always use perms designed for processed hair and to always air oxidize. Avoid using too much conditioner, apply it onto your palms and fingertips first, then apply it to your hair keeping the conditioner away form the root and base area of your hair, and then rinse the conditioner thoroughly.
