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.

Lace Front Wig, Full Lace Wigs, Lacefronts…What Does It All Mean?

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

There can be a lot of confusion about lace wig products, as they are popularly known under a number of different names. Lace fronts, lace front wigs, full lace wigs, full lace front wigs, to name a few, are all terms used to describe lace wig products. You may find yourself asking, what does it all mean? Although these terms reference similar hair technologies, they can represent different methods of wig construction. Lace wig is the general term to describe hair extension/hair replacement technology where hair is hand-tied in individual strands onto a fine lace net, mimicking natural hair growth. The materials used on the wig’s cap can vary, but it is the hand-crafted method of “ventilating” or knotting hair onto the base of the cap that sets these wigs apart from wigs of the past. They can be styled just like naturally growing hair and are lightweight and comfortable.

The term ‘Full Lace’ generally denotes that the entire wig’s cap is hand-tied and made fully of lace, while ‘Lace Front’ wigs have lace at the front hairline and different materials at the back of the cap. Now here’s where it can get confusing- ‘Lace Fronts’ or ‘Lace Front Wigs’ are popular terms used to reference any type of lace wig- the terms are often used interchangeably.  However, lace wigs differ widely in their quality and construction and you should inquire specifically about what you are getting before purchasing. Many companies, for example, sell lace front wigs that are only hand-tied for a small area at the front hairline of the wig, while the rest of the cap is made like a traditional wig with rows of wefts (track hair used for weaving). Though this type of construction may be more affordable because it is more easily mass produced, it does not measure up to the quality craftsmanship of a fully hand-tied wig made from an expert wig maker. Given that it can take several days for a wig maker to hand-tie one wig, the reasons for the price differences become more apparent. It is really an art, and only the best wig makers can create a natural and gorgeous piece that leaves no question to the wig wearer on its authenticity.

De Novo Hair specializes in lace wig customization.  We understand and appreciate the art of illusion in hair extension/hair replacement lace wig products. Unlike some of the cheaper models now widely available in beauty supply stores across the country, all of our wigs are still fully hand-tied and made to custom specifications. You can customize your head size, hair color, how the cap is made and with what materials, the hair used, the hair texture, including the shape of the hairline. Aside from our expert hand-tied technology, we only use quality human hair with textures to suit all ethnicities. We realize that one size does not fit all and take pride in helping women celebrate their individuality through our quality product line!
