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.

Using Lace Wigs as a Protective Style

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Lace wigs are not just used for addressing hair loss but can also be used as a protective style for those who do have lots of hair or for those who are working on growing out or transitioning their hair. In addition, lots of women love to change their look without putting too much stress on their own hair. You can accomplish this by using lace wigs as a protective style.  By using lace wigs as a protective style, you can change the cut, color, length and texture of your look without doing damage to your own hair. Your own hair can be braided down, conditioned, and well taken care of, while you style your lace wig as needed. No need to worry about doing damage to your own hair.

Lace wigs also allow you to give your hair and scalp a much needed break from any heat/straightening treatments, like flat irons, for example.  Flat iron and blow dry your hair every day and you are more prone to limp, dry hair.  Love your curly hair but would like to wear it straight from time to time without risking heat damage? Why not try ordering one of our lace wigs as a protective style? Is your hair in need of some tender care without constant combing? Facilitate its growth by giving the constant grooming a rest!  Gone are the days where women’s wigs are used just for necessity. Today women also accessorize with hair and it is much easier to do so!

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!
