Their are varieties of lace wigs, human hair wigs are the most realistic. Made from human or synthetic hair that's individually knotted onto a lace base, a professionally applied lace wig is virtually indistinguishable from natural hair. Because of this quality, lace wigs are favorites of women who have lost their hair for medical reasons, such as chemotherapy, as well as for costume departments of theaters and film studios. Though they're naturally realistic, you need to follow a few guidelines to make your lace wig look more natural than before.
Things You'll Need:
Fabric scissors Fabric dye Cotton swabs Anti-fray product Wide-tooth comb Vent brush Shampoo with UV protection Conditioner with UV protection.
Trim the excess lace off hairline of the wig before you wear it. Often, this is something that the wig seller(on street shop) will do for you to ensure that it is a good fit. If not, just cut the excess off with sharp fabric scissors, leaving about a 1/4-inch strip of lace available.
Have the lace dyed to match your skin tone, which will make the lace virtually undetectable and aid in the realistic look of your lace wig. To do this at home, use a fabric dye close in tone to your skin, and no darker. Dip a cotton swab into the dye and apply wherever the lace will be visible, such as around your hairline or at the part.
Add an anti-fray product designed for cloth to the edge of the lace if it starts to fray. You can find these products at craft and fabric stores, or you can purchase an anti-fray product online or shop near you.
Use a wide-tooth comb and a vent brush for styling your lace wig, since both of these will reduce the pull on the hair.Go slow when removing tangles to protect your lace wig!
Wash your lace wig with gentle shampoo designed for color-treated hair, followed by a deep-conditioning treatment. A shampoo or conditioner that offers UV protection is essential if you'll be wearing your wig on a regular condition.
Hide your hair before you put on your lace wig or you will destroy the illusion. If you have short hair, you can simply pin your hair so that it is all against your skull. Long hair is most manageable it you fashion it into braids that hug your head. However you hide your hair, the goal is to have a relatively smooth surface for your wig.
