You might think lace front wigs are less hassle than other wigs. Many people who wear wigs still have trouble with the most basic issues, like tangles and static, despite doing their research and coming prepared. Fortunately, with a little knowledge and some helpful tips, your lace front wig can remain an enjoyable accessory rather than an unpleasant chore. Read on for advice on how to detangle your lace front wig so that it remains a joy to wear instead of a frustrating burden.
Why Your Wig Always Gets Tangled
To help you take better care of your wig, these are the main reasons why human hair wigs experience tangling.
- How you brush your hair: Brushing your wig properly is something you might overlook. Be delicate when styling your hair; don’t brush or pull on it roughly. Don’t worry about styling your wig any differently than your real hair. You can’t just brush your lace wigs roughly and expect them to be OK. Detangle your hair carefully, beginning at the ends and working your way up to the roots, to reduce the likelihood of breaking.
- Tongs and curling irons: Dryness is a common side effect of using heated styling products like flat irons and blow dryers. Exposure to high temperatures will cause lace wigs to tangle and darken. Wigs dry faster and retain more moisture when air dried. To avoid damaging your wig, we advise you to let it air dry instead of using a hair dryer. However, low-heat settings for hair straighteners and curling irons are allowed. A safer alternative is to use a protective spray on your hair before you use these instruments.
- Wigs made from human Lack natural oil: Unlike genuine hair, lace wigs cannot be conditioned with body oil. The natural oils will help deter your hair from becoming tangled or falling out due to dryness. It is our suggestion that you cleanse and hydrate with a high-quality shampoo and intensive conditioner.
- Tangling caused by a divergence in cuticle growth: There is a medulla, a cortex, and a cuticle in every human hair. Tangled human hair wigs are usually caused by the cuticle. When hair strands are facing in opposite directions, friction develops within the cuticles, leading to a tangled mess. During the hair collection and production process, cuticles are frequently misaligned.
- A Tight Fit – If your wig is too tight or too loose, it may shift around as you move, exposing your hair to the risk of tangling with the synthetic fibers of your wig or the lace of your wig’s front. This can be particularly problematic if you have thin hair and are wearing a lace front wig to conceal balding.
A STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO DETANGLING YOUR WIG
Natural hair wigs have a few additional maintenance steps over their synthetic counterparts. Is there a trick to detangling a wig made from real hair? Don’t miss this:
Tools needed: wide-tooth comb, Sprayed water, Hairbrush, Conditioner, wig stand, Detangler, Stylers (blow dryer, flat iron, curling wand, etc.)
Step 1: Put the wig into water for a few minutes in the sink. The wig should then be squeezed to remove any remaining water and placed on the wig stand or table
Step 2: Get a conditioner and mix it with three times as much warm water in a spray container. Put the top on and give it a good shake, then put the mixture in a spray bottle and apply it to your wig. If you use a lot of conditioner or detangler, you may need to wash and condition the wig. Straight, long, and short lace front wigs need this most. Skipping washing could leave your wig limp and oily after styling. Curly wigs only need a quick rinse.
Step 3: In a calm, steady motion, work the wide-tooth comb through the knots from their bases up to their tips.
Step 4: Rinse the human hair wig by spraying it down with clean water. It aids in reducing the amount of oil left in the wig after it dries, which in turn helps to avoid the formation of knots.
Step 5: Hang it up to dry in the wig stand. A hairdryer will save the day if you’re in a pinch. Maintaining a cool or low heat setting will protect your hair the most.
Step 6: Once dry, you can style your wig. You can straighten it or curl it with a wand. Enjoy!
How to prevent tangles in human hair wig
-Don’t dye your human hair wig; When you dye a wig, you risk damaging the cuticles of the hair. Cuticles that have been damaged will stand up and entangle neighboring hairs. If you want, then you should consider colored lace front wigs.
– Don’t go to bed with your wig on – It’s possible that your wig will cause irritation to your pillowcases, blankets, or even your skin and clothes if you wear it to bed. As a result, knots are more likely to form. It’s time to get rid of the wig and hit the hay.
– Wear your wig snugly – A lace front wig should fit snugly but not tightly on your head. A tight wig could cause your own hair to become entangled with the wig’s lace, whereas a looser-fitting wig could cause your wig to shift around as you move, exposing your natural hair to the risk of tangling.
– Comb your hair before putting on your wig – Comb your own hair before you put on your wig to help prevent hair tangling before it begins.
It requires time and cares to detangle a real hair wig properly, as rushing the process might result in bald spots. Any tangled wig can be untangled following the advice in this article.
