Everyone wants to stand out from the crowd with a bold look. But if you’re not careful, that edgy style can quickly turn into “crazy homeless person.” If you wear a high-quality lace front wig, you can avoid this problem and look great for any event. Here are some key ways to keep your curly lace front wigs looking great.
Use the right shampoo
To find the right shampoo, you might have to do some research. There are many shampoos for curly hair, but only some of them can be used on wigs. Shampoos and conditioners without sulfates are best because they have less silicone than those with sulfates. Silicone coats the cuticles of your hair and makes it look shinier. However, too much silicone could make your wig look greasy or dull.
It’s also important to shampoo your wig every time you wear it. This gets rid of the dirt and oils that build up between uses, as well as any styling products you’ve used on top of the lace front wig. Look for a shampoo that will get rid of buildup without taking away too much of the natural moisture from the fiber mesh underneath (which can make it frizzy).
Use a wide-toothed comb
To keep your wig’s curls intact, you want to use a wide-toothed comb or brush. The wider the teeth, the better they will be at spreading the natural oils from your scalp through your hair.
It’s also a good idea to use a comb or brush made for curly hair, since they usually have smaller spaces between each tooth and are much easier on sensitive scalps than combs made for straight hair.
Lastly, don’t use any brushes or combs that have been used on another wig before. If you’re not careful, this can cause the curls in both wigs to get tangled up.
Be gentle on your hair
If you want your curly wig to stay in good shape, you should avoid pulling or tugging at the hair. This can lead to knots and a lot of damage. If you aren’t careful when brushing your hair with a wide-tooth comb, you could also damage it. Too much brushing can also cause damage and breakage that can’t be fixed, as well as frizz that will be hard to control in the future.
If you do decide to use curlers or straighteners, always start with the lowest heat setting and then turn it up if you need to. Also, don’t leave these tools on for too long. This will only burn off the moisture in the strand, which could cause more damage in the future .
Try not to use heat too often
Don’t curl, straighten, or curl your human hair lace front wig with a curling iron, flat iron, or curling wand. Use a heat protectant before you style your lace front wigs with heat tools, and don’t use too much force when you do.
Set the heat on your hair dryer to low and move it slowly over the wig so you don’t damage the lace base or cap. If you have thick curls and need to use high temperatures, make sure to keep moving so that each section of hair is only exposed for no more than 5 seconds before you move on to the next section.
This will prevent damage from scorching buildup, which means fried strands! If this happens anyway, just wash your hair as soon as you can. No matter if it’s wet or dry, we want those bad boys out of our hair as soon as possible! Also, don’t use combs because they can get stuck in tangles and cause hair to break down the line.
Experiment with different styles every once in a while
Styling your curly bob wig is a great way to show off its natural curls, and it’s also a great way to make sure it doesn’t look like you’re wearing one at all. If your hair is curly, try leaving a few strands around your face loose or using bangs to frame your face.
If your hair is straight, you could wear braids or cornrows down the sides and back of your head. You can also style the front of your lace front wig differently than the back so that they look more different from each other. People who have never seen you before will be able to tell if your hair is real or not if you do these small things.
Now that you know the basics of how to take care of your curly lace front wig, it’s time to try out these tips. You might be surprised by how much they change the way your hair looks and how you look overall.
