How to Avoid Damage from Lace Front Wigs

Thick, luxurious hair has always been a sign of youth and health. Unluckily, it isn’t a gift that is given to every person. Medicinal treatments, genetics and disease can make hair thinner and unattractive. Human hair lace front wigs, which have a mesh lace base, are the most natural and safest but can still cause damage if you don’t take care.

Try the lace wig on before cutting off the additional lace at the front. You need to leave a little extra lace on the front to catch the glue. Cutting the lace too short creates a bad fit and excessive pull.

Use hair gel, corn rows or a wig stocking to slick hair back. Using an unbreathable fabric to hold your hair under the wig causes damage to your existing hair.

Don’t apply the adhesive directly on the skin and the hair to avoid damage to the hair and scalp.

Remove the glue first with the lace release remover. If you pull the lace front wig before you clean away the glue completely, your hair may pull out from your scalp. Allow the glue to keep for a while before attempting to remove the wig. It takes a few minutes for the glue to soften. If you attempt to remove the wig immediately, it will tug your natural hairs out of the scalp.

Keep your hair and lace front wig clean. Wash the wig as often as the manufacturer recommends to deter any possibility of bacterial of fungal infection. Infection is infrequent but can happen.
