Synthetic lace front wigs are made of plastic strings that are heated to extend the length of hair. The manufacturers bend the plastic to create curls and waves. Using curlers and low heat is a simple way to curl synthetic lace wigs without paying for more wigs and allows you to make hairstyles you like.
Things needed:synthetic lace front wig,Wig head,Metal bristle brush,Curlers with brush -- any size,Wig pins,Blow dryer:
Start with a dry wig:Place a dry synthetic wig on top of the wig head. Using a wig head makes applying curlers and brushing the hair more easier than other way.
Brush hair with a metal bristle brush. Brushing the hair removes tangles and lint and makes tighter curl.
Wrap strips of hair around curlers. Start with at least 2 inches of hair or expand the width depending on how big you want your curls to be. A smaller width of hair creates smaller and tighter curls and a wider width of hair creates larger and loose curls. Begin at the ends of the hair and wrap the hair tightly around the curler until the curler reaches close to the scalp.
Brush curlers and wig pin.
Secure hair with a wig pin. Push the pin into hair through the curler.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the hair is wrapped in curlers completely.
Blow dry hair to set the curls: Blow dry hair on the lowest setting to avoid burning hair. Blow dry for 10 to 30 minutes or until the hair is warm to the touch. The length of time may be different.
Blow drying sets curls.
Remove the curlers from the hair and style.
