Caring for your fragile lace wig is not difficult. However,
it does require routine maintenance for lasting results.
Follow these instructions to care and optimize the lifetime
and wear of your Lace Unit Wig. Is is very important to keep
the hair clean. We suggest that you wash the hair at least
once or twice a week with warm or cold water. Please wash
the hair immediately after swimming, spa, exercise, and etc.
When dirt and sweat accumulate, hair tangles. Too much
leave-in conditioners and other hair care products will
create a build up on the hair and will cause it to tangle
faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with build up, wash
it with good shampoo & conditioner.
Step 1 Wash Preparation
Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and
water and brush the hair from bottom up. You must gradually
wet the hair down and brush it gently before you completely
wash the hair. If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is
added at once, hair will swell up like sponge and tangle!
Therefore, it is important to gradually wet the hair and
Step 2 Applying shampoo
Rinse wig in cold water. This is very important, because you
do not want heat from the water to cause the cap
construction to break down or cause the hair to detach from
the cap. Apply the shampoo to the wig. Focus on the forehead
area of the wig, which may be heavily soiled. Treat the wig
delicately, as you would a delicate garment. Avoid using
Step 3 Rinsing the shampoo
Rinse the shampoo from the wig. Always rinse the shampoo off
with water flowing in the same direction of the hair, from
roots to the
Step 4 Towel dry the wig
After rinsing, human hair wigs should be placed on a flat
towel to have the excess water dabbed away.
DO NOT brush or
comb the wig while it is still wet. Due to the water
absorbency, the hair shaft expands and the root knot loosens
causing the hair to shed dramatically.
Step 5 Dry on wig stand
Put on wig stand and let it air dry.
DO NOT try to speed up the drying process by blow drying,
placing under the sunlight, in a clothes dryer, microwave,
or any direct heat. This will cause the wig cap to loose
integrity and shed small to large amounts of hair.
How can I prevent
my lace wig from shedding?
information is to help you learn how you can prevent and
avoid your lace wig from shedding.
Most important - Keep wig clean.
Second, we advise to STAY AWAY from putting products
directly in the hair that contain high levels of alcohol ie.
Hair Sprays, Spritz, etc.. As these products can damage the
hair and cause shedding or breakage.
Third, you MUST clean all the glue residue off your wig when
you remove it. Letting glue or other adhesives build up on
your lace will cause shedding.
Fourth, do not scratch your scalp through your unit as this
will cause shedding. Instead, pat your head with your head
or remove your unit and treat your scalp with an anti-itch
shampoo and conditioner and then moisturize your scalp with
an oil or hair grease to prevent itching.
Fifth, comb your unit from the tip up, holding the hair
above as you comb so that it won't pull on your knots. Use a
ventilated wig brush to comb your wig, not a bristle brush.
Sixth, do not comb your wig when its wet. Prior to washing
your unit make sure you comb it out thoroughly and that its
nice and smooth before you start to wash it.
Seventh, do not Blow Dry or Sit Under a Dryer with heat, you
should let your unit air dry. If you must blow dry, make
sure it is on the cool setting. Blow Dryer heat will
damage/split the knots and cause shedding.
How to apply the full lace wig?
1. Prep your hair, by creating a flat surface for the wig to
sit on. You can braid your hair down, or apply a wig liner.
2. Fit the wig on your head, and evaluate how and where you
would like the hairline, the goal is to find where the
hairline will look most natural.
3. Gradually starting trimming the excess lace, the goal
here is to create your hairline, only cut small amounts off
at a time.
4. After you have created your hairline, apply adhesive to
the hairline, so it can stay on your head.
5. The finished hairline should look totally natural, as if
the hair were actually growing from your head.
How to remove the full lace wig?
1. Pull all hair up into a ponytail, so you won’t get
adhesive on the hair.
2. Apply the lace adhesive remover to the adhesive around
perimeter of hairline.
3. Gradually remove the lace. Be sure not to pull at the
lace. Remove slowly. However it's always best to remove the
system from back to front. Doing this avoids stretching the
front of the hair system.
4. Once you've removed the system gently peel the tape from
the base. With the tape removed, use an alcohol-free citrus
solvent to remove any adhesive residue.
5. After you have removed the lace, there may be some
residue from your skin left on the unit, you should shampoo
the unit, and with a towel, delicately scrub the residue
6. You should let the unit dry naturally or you can style
the unit, how you would normally style your natural hair.
