1. Wash your human hair wig gently. The gentler, the better. Put the wig on a wig stand.

2. Comb the hair of the wig with a detangling comb. Don’t comb the base of the wig or the mesh where the hair is attached.

3. Roll the wig with hair rollers while it is still damp. You may use a spray bottle filled with diluted setting lotion or water to keep the hair moist as you work with the hair to style it. This will help the hair to adhere to the rollers and give a good curl to the ends of the hair.
If you prefer to curl the wig with a curling iron, you may do so once it’s dry. Curl each section of the wig with a curling iron. Skip to “Step 6.”

4. Dry the wig. Either let the hair air dry overnight or place the wig and wig stand under a hard hat dryer. Keep the setting of the dryer low. It will take 45 minutes to 2 hours for the wig to dry depending on the length and thickness of the hair on the wig.

5. Take out the rollers once the wig is completely dry.

6. Style the wig to your liking using gentle strokes with a comb or wig brush. Spray a light mist of hair spray or spritz to seal the curls and the style.

7. Remove the wig from the wig stand and try your freshly styled human hair wig on to see how it looks. You may need to add a few finishing touches to personalize the style of the wig to fit your face.

What is a wig stand?

For those who own a wig, a wig stand is a convenient place on which to store, dry and style it. There are several different types, from inexpensive foam heads to suction stands that attach to a table. Regular care and careful storage will help keep a hairpiece looking its best. A good wig is an investment, and a wig stand is only one of several accessories available to keep it clean and tangle-free.

Most people are familiar with full wigs that cover the entire head, or toupées for men seeking to hide bald spots. A wig may have a standard cap to cover the scalp, or an open one to make it more comfortable. Synthetic wigs exist that are virtually indistinguishable from those made of 100 human hair and cost less, although many are designed in a particular style that can’t be altered. The most natural-looking wig has a monofilament cap with hand-tied human hair that can be parted and styled in any fashion.

All wigs should be stored on a wig stand when not being worn. It doesn’t matter what kind of stand is used, since the main purpose is to maintain the shape. For wig wearers on a budget, new or used polystyrene foam heads can be ordered from wig supply retailers. Many wig storage boxes come with this type of stand. A collapsible wig stand made of wire or plastic is usually less expensive, and works well for drying because it allows airflow through the wig.

Some people prefer to use a mannequin wig stand that looks like a real head, with plastic skin and features painted on its face. These are usually weighted so they stay put better than a polystyrene foam head. The polystyrene heads are so light, they sometimes fall over when brushing or styling the wig. One type has a clamp that attaches to a tabletop so it doesn’t slide around. The suction wig stand has a detachable suction cup base to hold it in place.

A freshly-washed wig should not be blow dried; instead, it should always be dried on a stand that allows adequate airflow, unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer. Retailers and salons that sell hairpieces have T-pins to hold the wig in place while brushing and styling, and combs, brushes and rollers, along with special shampoos and conditioners for both human hair and synthetic wigs. Unless manufacturers say otherwise, they should be the only cleansers used. Blow-drying or heat styling will melt synthetic hair and can damage delicate 100 human hair wigs.

Silk, or Lace Closure? Lace Frontal?

Lace frontals cover a larger area than closure as they will have a temple to temple hairline. This larger temple to temple area in combination with the replication of a natural hairline allows for many off the face type of hairstyles that are not possible with a regular closure.

Closures do not run temple to temple. Instead they are placed in the “horseshoe” area at the top of a weave to close off the style. Closures can be installed by bonding, as well as by attaching with the use of clips. The most popular method for installing lace closures is by sewing the closure then installing the rest of the weave around the closure. The closure is placed close to the edge of the braided foundation near the hair line.. The stylist then sews around the perimeter of the closure taking acre to stitch so that the stitches are concealed.

How to care for and Prevent damage!

Since closures and frontals are delicate in nature, it is important to take extra care to prevent damage or balding. Balding is when your closure piece begins to have a spot where the hairs have come out of the base creating a balding appearance. This can be caused by, excessive tugging, brushing/combing, scratching with fingernails or foreign objects, applying product directly on the closure piece, rough handling, or vigorous washing. Closures and frontals while mimicking a real scalp or hair line, cannot be treated like a real scalp. You must handle with care. Each hair is individually ventilated into the base, knotted and secured with a strong adhesive. Based on the construction of a the piece, you should comb/brush the hair from the ends, working your way up to the root while hold the hair at the root to prevent tension. Hair loss on closures is relatively easy because it is not weft hair extensions. Improper care of your closure will cause balding and unfortunately there is no way to fix this.

How to apply and remove a lace front wig

1.) The first task is to create a flat surface for the wig to sit on. You can braid your hair down, mold it, or apply a stocking cap and/or wig liner. Most prefer molding or wrapping the hair when wearing a straight unit and braiding it when the unit is curly. The decision is yours.

2.)   Next cleanse your forehead perimeter with alcohol. this will create a clean oil free surface which will be better for the adhesive to adhere to.

3.) All the hair of the wig hair should be pinned up before placing on your head. This will eliminate the hair from falling and sticking to the glue. be especially careful of the baby hairs the stick easily to excess glue.

4.)   Gradually start trimming the excess lace, the goal here is to create your hairline, only cut small amounts off at a time. Refrain from making jagged cuts in the lace only smooth precision ones. Stork scissors work well for cutting the lace. Place the wig on your head, and evaluate how and where you would like the hairline. The goal is to find where the hairline will look most natural.

5.)   Mark or lightly outline where it is to be placed on your head. Do not apply adhesive outside these marks. You should be able to place four fingers between your hairline and your eyebrows for the most natural look.

6.) After you have created your hairline, apply adhesive to the hairline so it can stay on your head. Let it semi-dry before placing your wig over it. It should be a little tacky sticky to the touch not stringy, for best hold results. Press down with comb.

7.) Add glue to excess spots that you may have missed. Make sure you let it semi dry before pressing down with comb. Lace should lay on forehead hairline smoothly with no ripples

Below is the instruction for removing the wig from your head.
1) Pull all hair up into a ponytail, to provide better access to  hairline where remover should be placed.
2.) Apply the lace adhesive remover to the adhesive around perimeter of hairline. Be careful not to let it run in your eyes. Let remover set in for a minute or two, then gradually remove the lace.
3.)   It is best to clean the unit when it is completely off the head. Glue gets embedded in the lace after a while of wearing. This glue has to be removed  before shampooing your unit. Spray any areas that have old adhesive on it let it soak in for a few minutes then squeeze excess glue from unit.
4.)  It’s best to clean old glue from your unit before shampooing. You should let the unit dry naturally then you can reapply, style or store it.

Double knots literally involve knotting hair twice to produce a double knot which provides a stronger, more robust knot. The resultant knots are however even more visible under close inspection. This is a particular problem when trying to create a natural hairline and for this reason most front hair lines should be single hair, single knotted on a flesh tone lace material.

The term hair injection refers to the method of inserting a series of hairs through a layer of polyurethane before coating the underside of the base with a single layer of liquid form polyurethane. Upon setting (or curing) the inserted hairs remain trapped between the two transparent layers.

Hair injection is a relatively new method of hair attachment, becoming increasingly popular due to its natural appearance, free of knots.

After receiving your order, we will discuss its feasibility with your technician. If there is no problem, your order will be sent to our factory. Our sales department will prepare related material, such as hair, base material and then produced by our skilled worker. Our quality controller in the factory will check its quality according to your request. Before the shipment, the QC will recheck it again.

Single Knots are hard to detect, but easy to shed, by contrast, Double Knots are hard to shed, but easy to detect. As to the advantages and the disadvantages of the two kinds of knots, we recommend single knots in front hairline 2 inches or around perimeter 2 inches.

It is the best method to hidden the knots at present. But the procedure of processing is very complete, regularly needs 40 – 45 days to complete.
