Common wig care mistakes that you should avoid

Wigs

From over-the-counter serums to professional treatments; wig lovers these days leave no stone unaltered to ensure that their ‘hairs replacement’ lasts longer and looks as good as their natural hairs. However, even after spending a fortune, we are very often dissatisfied with the longevity of our wigs. We all want them to stay healthy, shiny, and strong but unfortunately, most of us do not know how to treat them or care for them.

If you own a ‘priceless’ lace wig, here are a few things that you should avoid doing so that your wig meets your expectation.

  1. Choose the wig care products carefully. The over-the-counter serums and shampoos may not be suitable for it. The products available at supermarkets may damage the strands. Stay away from them as much as possible. Always buy high quality, genuine products available at specialized wig stores such as the ones available at Pink Lace Wigs.
  2. Do not over-expose your wig to chlorinated water. Excessive chlorine can damage the strands permanently.
  3. Avoid exposing your lace wig to the sun. UV rays are as harmful for your wig as they are for your natural hairs and skin.
  4. Wig trimming is certainly not a DIY thing. You may not be able to do a good job and may end up damaging it badly. In case your wig needs trimming, seek professional help. Trust the experts instead of choosing a low-cost service.
  5. Avoid dyeing your wig frequently. In case you want to dye it, seek professional help. Do not try to do it yourself. Dyeing wigs requires as much perfection as dying natural hairs and only professionals will be able to do it appropriately.
  6. Styling your hairs is a great way to spruce up your look, but avoid over-styling. Those hair straightening rods and blow dryers are as bad for your wig as they are for your natural hairs. Frequent use can decrease the longevity of your hair replacement.
  7. Do not put too much tension while brushing your hairs. Excessive pulling can weaken the strands. Brush carefully, starting from the bottom and working upwards. If your wig has got tangled, read our previous blog post on ‘The right approach to detangle your wig’.
  8. Store your wig carefully. Do not throw it in your drawer. Use a proper wig head to hold it.

Here is the right approach to detangle your wig

Wigs

full lace wigs

We all hate tangles and why would not we? They hurt us and make our hairs look unmanageable. Unfortunately, both wigs and your natural hairs are prone to tangling. No matter how expensive your wig is, if you don’t store it properly, it will get unmanageable and ugly-looking knots.

Improper detangling techniques can severely shorten the life of your wig. Here is the right way to untangle those messy knots.

Step 1: Wash your wig

Washing is not always necessary, but the experts at Pink Lace Wigs strongly recommend that you must clean your wig before you try to untangle it. Cleaning will help remove the dust, dirt, and oil clinging to the strands. In our last blog on ‘Here is what you need to know to make your wig last longer’, we had mentioned how you should wash your wig. In case you missed it, here is a brief process that will help you:

  • Fill a sink with water (neither hot nor cold) and pour an ounce of wig shampoo in it.
  • Dip your wig in it for a few minutes and then lightly rub the strands with your fingers.
  • Run your fingers through the strands slowly and carefully. Do not put too much pressure or else you may damage them.
  • Rinse it well and hang it on a wig head or foam ball.
  • Apply wig conditioner to loosen the most stubborn tangles.
  • Let it dry naturally. Do not blow dry. Also, do not try to untangle the strands when the wig is wet. Let it dry completely.

Step 2: Use conditioner to loosen the tangles

Once the wig is completely dry, spray some wig conditioner on it. Run your fingers through it to loosen the big knots. Do not much pressure. Run your fingers as softly as possible, working out through all the knots that you may come across. Keep doing this until the strands look fairly smooth to you.

Now, it’s time to use your favorite wide-toothed comb. Work from the bottom to the top carefully untangling the knots. Divide your wig into sections to make it more convenient. After combing, your wig should look pretty good. You can use your wig brush to further smoothen it out.

Step 3: Store your wig carefully

In case you are not planning to use the wig right way, here is how you can store it so that it doesn’t get tangled again:

  • If you have long wig, make a very loose braid and wrap it around the base of the wig head. Now, place the wig in its bag. Make sure the braid is very loose or else the strands may become wavy.
  • If the wig isn’t too long, twist the strands lightly and coil it up inside out. Place the coiled part in a netting cap and place the wig’s original net on it.

Here is what you need to know to make your wig last longer

Wigs

Wigs are wonderful accessories. Sometimes you need them to add volume to your thin hairs, sometimes for protecting your natural hairs, sometimes for adding length, and many a times for getting a specific look. A good quality, natural looking wig requires a significant investment. More than that, it requires as much care as your natural hairs do. From brushing carefully to washing regularly; you have to take care of your wig as if it is real. We at Pink Lace Wigs have found that very often people ignore them, only to regret later. If you are one of them, here are a few dos and don’ts that you should follow in order to prolong their life.

Picture111

A few things that you must do:

  • Invest in a good quality wig brush. Your wide-tooth comb cannot detangle your wig as gently as a wig brush can. Unlike hair brushes that have rubber tips, wig brushes have specially looped tips that are helpful in detangling the strands without putting much pressure on them.
  • Store your wig properly. Good storage will ensure that it retains its shape and style for a longer duration. If you have invested in an expensive Full Lace wig, buy a wig head to hold it when you are not using it. Foam heads are quite inexpensive but in case you do not have too much storage space, you can use newspaper balls to hold them.
  • Wash your wig regularly, at least after every 10 uses. If you don’t wash them, they will start looking dull and may start smelling foul. Fill your sink with water and pour an ounce of good quality shampoo, (preferably wig shampoo) in it. Dip the wig and leave for 5 minutes. Run your fingers through it so that it gets cleaned thoroughly. Rinse well and place it on the wig head. Let it dry naturally.


A few things that you must not do:

  • Do not use hot water to clean your wig.
  • Even if you are having a heat resistant wig, do not blow dry it. Let it dry naturally.
  • When it is wet, do not rub it or shake it, as this may cause tangling.
  • Never try to trim it yourself. Seek professional help.
  • Do not fold the wig or else it may lose its shape and style easily.
  • Do not use it while cooking. Protect it from heat and dust as much as possible.
  • Limit the amount of styling. Even if you have a heat resistant wig, excessive styling can decrease its life. Treat them like normal hairs. When styling, use the lowest temperature setting.

The Right Density For Your Lace Front Wig

A lace front wig is a wig made with human hair hand tied to a lace base. Lace front and full lace wigs are the newest innovation in non-surgical hair replacement systems. The hair is knotted into the lace and has the illusion as though growing from the scalp. Lace front and full lace wigs have been worn by celebrities for years but are recently becoming known to the general public. While customizing your full lace or lace front wig it is very important to choose the right density to allow for the most natural look.

Hair density refers to how thick the hair is. The hair density that you order is really based on personal choice and what looks best on you. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however, your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.

Naturally growing hair grows differently for every person. Hair can grow thin (light) around the perimeter (hairline) and thick (medium) in the middle. Hair can also grow thick (medium) around the perimeter (hairline) and thickest (heavy) in the middle. Below are the most popular choices for densities in the lace front/ and full lace wig industry.

• Light Density: This density is 60% thickness of an average head of hair. It is recommended for people whose natural hair does not have much volume or thickness. Light density on a lace front or full lace wig shows a fair amount of scalp. This density is popular with elderly women.
• Light to Medium: This density is 100% thickness of an average head of hair. This is the most popular density requested for custom lace front and full lace wigs. It means that the lace front or full lace wig will have light density at the hairline and medium density every where else. This is the most natural looking and most recommended by top stylists. This density is suitable for most women.
• Heavy: This density is 150% thickness of an average head of hair. This is too much hair for most women to look natural. This density in lace front wigs or full lace wigs is usually worn by performers who desire a heavy style. Not recommended for a person looking for a natural look in a lace front or full lace wig.

Remember whatever density that you choose, lace front and full lace wigs provide the most natural looking extensions in the market today.

To prevent this, try using a clarifying shampoo one or two times per week, in order to strip any dirt or hair care product residue that’s collected.

Try using a deep conditioner treatment to give dry hair a treat. Try wrapping the hair in a moist towel or even try using some plastic wrap to keep the heat in. After 30 minutes, wash the conditioner out completely and then rinse well.
