Special Care for Your 100% Natural Lace Wigs

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

natural lace wigs The reason why 100% natural lace wigs are the best choice is already clear, but the fact that they need special care might seem intimidating to some. Indeed, synthetic wigs don’t need styling and they are easy to wash just by putting them in cold water mixed with a special solution. However, natural lace wigs can be much more rewarding because of the efforts you make in maintaining its beauty and the versatility in styling.
If you own a natural lace wig, then you know that the hairstyles won’t last very long without proper care. Just like naturally growing hair, the hair used to make our lace wigs may become oily, dry or and go flat. This happens because although the hair is all natural, it was cut from the roots that were feeding it with nutrients in order to regenerate it and keep it moisturized. So, the need of washing your natural lace wig for an infusion of moisture is imperative. Whenever you feel that your wig is full of hairspray, wax or any other styling products that you might use, it will need to be cleaned.

Washing your all natural lace wigs

Before you wash your wig, you must comb the hair carefully. Using a wide tooth comb rather than a brush is pertinent for preventing unnecessary shedding. If you skip this step, you might have to deal with even larger portions of tangled hair afterwards, and therefore, an increase in shedding.
Next, you can fill the sink or a bowl that’s big enough with warm water. The reason why lace wigs need to be washed with warm water is because the pores of natural hair open in contact with heat sources and close in contact with cold water or cold air. Washing with the wrong temperature can cause the hair to be dry or tangle more. The hair products used can also impact the softness and manageability of your natural lace wigs. You can choose from a wide range of products that are especially meant to be used for wigs. When in a pinch and you have to wash your unit and don’t have any special wig shampoo, you can use a highly moisturizing regular shampoo.
The third step that you should take after cleaning your natural lace wig is to apply a conditioner. There are plenty revitalizing conditioners in our store and that are available in your local markets that can moisturize your wig well. Opt for non-static products if you notice that there’s a tendency of electrification when you comb the hair. Then, rinse the wig’s hair with warm water. You should expect some hair shedding with continued use and washing of your natural lace wigs, so we recommend that you do not overdo it with washing. You should wash the hair when necessary but daily washing is certainly not recommended.
It is important to towel or air dry your natural lace wigs. Hand squeeze any extra water and then place the wig in a towel to soak up any extra water. If you have a curly hair unit, it is recommended that you do not use a towel! This can cause extra frizz and dryness. For curly units, hand squeeze out the extra water, apply your favorite curl defining product and then let the wig air dry. Ideally, you should let your natural lace wigs air dry on a wig stand and style it after it is dry. Flat irons or curling irons are permitted with natural hair and you can also use heat protectants before you begin the styling process of your wig. De Novo Hair is also resourceful when it comes to styling products, as well as wig stands that make your work much easier.

Winterizing Your Hair, by Chaunteese

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Since having my new De Novo Hair full lace wig I have acquired a number of suggestions that will help clients keep their wig healthy and tangle free. Anyone who has spent even one single day in Chicago during the winter can contest to the brutality that Mother Nature unleashes on the body, skin and hair. That’s why here in Chi, we have to bundle up! However, the materials that our hats and coats are made from oftentimes are not friendly to our hair.  In fact, clients oftentimes, come in to the salon with breakage and evidence of unhealthy hair care.  What causes this breakage is friction, which is caused by movement between the materials of our garments which comes in contact with our hair.  This friction can also cause tangling with your hair addition, especially at the nape. However, there are ways to help reduce that friction: 1) Try to wear garments made from the material Satin or Silk.  So, before you put on your winter hat and coat, you should put on a silk or satin bonnet or scarf to protect your hair.  This will provide adequate protection, in most instances, against the drying effects of Mother Nature’s brutal winds and cold temperatures. In addition, this will reduce tangling as well as breakage. Stay warm and don’t worry so much about your hair!

Flat Ironing & Texture

Friday, August 7th, 2009

De Novo Hair offers the widest variety of hair textures that are suitable for women of all ethnicities. Our clients appreciate the choices they have in matching to their own hair texture or for trying out a new style. With curly or wavy styles, it is relatively easy to pick out a texture based on the curl pattern pictured. The task is more nuanced with straight hair especially since the differences can be more subtle. As with all human hair, it is important to note that the texture can change temporarily based on how the hair is styled, especially when using styling tools like flat irons or curling irons. The heat in these tools essentially changes the bond in the hair shaft. So you can start with the poofy Natural Relaxed texture and end up with Regular Relaxed tresses, based on the amount of heat used on the hair shaft. The important thing to remember about flat irons and the like is that hair is prone to damage from excessive heat and hair abuse just as your own naturally growing hair would be. You don’t want to use these tools too often and a heat protector should be used along with it. You basically don’t want to “fry” the hair to a limp state.

When deciding on a texture, pick one out based on your hair preference and the amount of grooming you think you’re up for. You can usually flat iron each texture to a silkier state. So for a Natural Relaxed, you can flat iron to a Coarse or Regular Relaxed. You can flat iron the Coarse relaxed to a Regular relaxed and so forth. The flat iron will smooth out the hair shaft.

We often get asked whether curly or wavy styles can be flat ironed. The answer is yes but there are some textures where we recommend against it. With afro curly and tight waves it is generally better to just have a second straight wig at hand than going through the labor of flat ironing out all the curls. As long as you have not brought about any heat damage to the hair, it will revert back to the curly state when moisture hits it again (humidity/washing etc.). However, the general rule of thumb is to avoid excessive heat on hair that has gone through chemical processing already. Extra curly hair typically needs more constant heat to straighten and this heat can contribute to dryness and breakage. This is why it’s just better to have a straight wig to alternate with. With the alternate use, both wigs will last longer.
