1.Put the lace wig on a wig stand.
2.Spray synthetic hair with wig lubricant before brushing out tangles. A longer hairstyle may have significant matting at the back and shoulders, where the hair rubs your body. Squirt the underside of the hair with the lubricant before brushing out these areas. Mix your own lubricant in a spray bottle by combining one part liquid fabric softener with four parts of water. Detangle a human hair wig by treating it with leave-in conditioner!
3.Work out large tangles with your fingers, but do not pull out the hairs. Starting at the ends of the hair, brush out snarls working in small sections. Squirt the brush with lubricant or conditioner as needed.
4.Fill a sink or plastic tub with cool -- never hot -- water. Add one cap full of baby or wig shampoo into the water. Submerge the wig into the soapy water and allow it to soak for five minutes to allow ground-in dirt to loosen. Shampoo the hair gently with your hands.
5.Drain the water and rinse the lace wig under fresh, cool water until the suds disappear completely.
6.Blot the hair lace wig with a towel. Don't crush or force the water out, because this may damage your wig. Place the wig on a wig stand for drying. When the wig is damp, not wet, spray a leave-in conditioner on the ends of the hair!
7.Brush the hair with the wig brush once the hair has dried. Style a curly, synthetic lace front wig with sponge rollers. Never use hot curling irons or rollers on synthetic hair. You can use heated appliances on human hair, but over time, human hair lace wigs will become dry and may become frizzy sometimes.
