Here are some little tips:

1. Washing the curly wig carefully. you don’t need to wash the curly wig too often like your natural hair, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wash it. You can wash it after one week when there are some dust and dirt in the hair. When you wash it, you can use your own shampoo and conditioner to wash the hair then use water to rinse it out gently, then squish the water and use a towel to dry it, but don’t rub the hair or the curls will get loose.

If the curl pattern is not tight, you can use a wide-toothed comb to detangle the hair, just comb the hair gently but if you comb tangled part and it is not easy to open, pls don’t use the comb to stretch the hair or it will cause hair shedding. If it is a tight curl hair wig, then you should not use a comb on the hair, just use your fingers to comb through the hair gently.

Wigs are extremely popular because they can instantly change one's appearance and offers a great deal of flexibility when it comes to hairstyle, color, and length. Many women are tending to purchase human hair weave bundles with closure to create beautiful wig if you are beginner, now it comes to the question "How to make a wig with lace closure and bundles"? Today, I will share a very detailed tutorial from start to finish about how to make a wig.

How To Make A Wig Step By Step?

Step 1: Secure your wig head on the table with tape or on a wig stand. You need to make sure it is stable before you get to making your wig, so as to make the process easier for you.

Step 2: Place wig cap on the mannequin head. Figure out where the front and back of your future wig are going to be.

Step 3: Prepare your hair weaves. Before you sew them onto the cap, measure them. You can pin them down to see how many tracks you are going to need to make your wig. If you have one long track, we recommend you not to cut it up if you want to avoid the hair shedding.

Step 4: Sewing the lace closure into the front of the cap. Begin by securing it with pearl headed pins at the front of the wig cap, then use the needle and thread to sew it all the way around along the edge. Do not forget to make tight knots, especially at the beginning and the end of your stitching to make sure that the lace closure is secure.

Step 5: Take your first track and start sewing it to the wig cap from one edge of your lace closure to the other along the bottom edge of the cap (where the nape of your neck will be). When you get to the edge and you have very little track left, secure it with a knot and cut off the excess track. If it is long enough to go another way around, fold it carefully, press on the fold to avoid bumps and continue sewing in the opposite direction.

Step 6: Once you have sewn all of your tracks all the way to the lace closure, sew the last track to the lace closure. Secure it with a knot and cut off the excess track.

Step 7: Pluck lace closure. Tweeze the hairs in the lace closure to make it look like your real hair.

Step 8: When you are done with the sewing and your wig is starting to look like a wig, take it off the wig head and cut off the excess wig cap that is peeking from under the lace. Make sure you do not cut into the stitching. You can also cut off the excess lace if you want to. Once again, do not cut too close to the hair, or you might ruin the whole thing.

Step 9: Turn your wig inside out ad sew in your wig band and combs. Use the needle and thread to sew the elastic band to the rim of the dome cap, so that it can help you keep your hair on. Depending on how many combs you have, place them on the inside of the cap to add a little extra security to your wig. There should be at least one comb on each side of the head and preferably one at the back.

Step 10: At this step, your wig is pretty much done. You can use some moist hair care products on your wig. If you are satisfied with the way the hair looks, you can leave it at that. If you are not, style your wig until you get the hairstyle you want.

Tip: If you would like to color your hair I highly recommend doing that before constructing your wig. I hope that the above steps will help you very well.

The Effects of Wig Adhesives

6/13/2020 5:52 AM

Wig adhesive, or wig glue, is a bonding agent that stylists use to adhere a wig or other type of hairpiece to the head. While the adhesive can help you achieve a more natural looking style, there are some side effects to using it. Learn about these side effects so that you can mitigate them appropriately.

Types of Wig Adhesives

There are several types of wig adhesives. Wig glue also comes in different colors and is comparable to the consistency of school glue. There are adhesive strips which act like double-sided tape and can be used to attach the wigs. Different types of wig adhesive will produce varying lengths of durability. A liquid adhesive will hold for approximately four to six weeks; the adhesive strips will hold for two to three weeks. Which type of adhesive you use will depend on your lifestyle and personal preference.

What's In It?

Wig adhesive, either in liquid or strip form, contains ingredients that may irritate the skin. Latex is a common ingredient in most wig adhesives and can cause itching, burning and general irritation to the head area if you are sensitive or allergic to it. Another common ingredient in wig glue is isopropanol, which can cause irritation to the eyes, throat and nose.

Water-Based and Solvent-Based Adhesive

Water-based adhesives are a good choice for sensitive skin as they generally do not contain as many chemicals. Their hold strength may also be shorter, or about two to three weeks. A solvent-based adhesive contains more chemicals, and therefore may be more likely to irritate your skin. Solvent-based wig glues will provide a longer hold, or up to 6 weeks.

Short- and Long-Term Effects

There has been very little study of the short- and long-term effects of using wig adhesive on a daily basis. Caution should be taken when using any products that contain chemicals. If you notice any ill effects, such as irritated or broken skin, itching or redness, you should discontinue use of the product immediately. When removing your wig or hairpiece, always use a specially formulated glue remover. Pulling the wig off can cause serious damage to your hair and skin if the glue is not properly dissolved beforehand.

How to Sew on a Full Lace Wig

5/30/2020 3:56 AM

The popularity of the full lace front wig is continuing to grow, thanks to Tyra Banks and Beyonce, whose hair always looks flawless. The full lace wig is specially hand crafted to make it appear that the hair is growing right out of your scalp. There are a few different ways to apply a full lace wig, but the most common and longest lasting method is to sew it in.

Braid your hair in corn rows going straight back. If you have long hair past the nape hairline, lift the braids upward and lay them in between the corn rows and sew the braids together.

Wipe your forehead at the hairline with rubbing alcohol to remove dirt and oil. This is where the lace will lay once the wig is on your head. Apply the scalp protector to the front hairline and let it dry.

Apply the hair adhesive to the hairline, being especially careful not to get adhesive on your natural hair.

Slowly put the wig on your head starting in the back and stretching it to the front. Align the frontal lace to your desired position, then press firmly on the lace using the back of your comb to bond the lace to the scalp. Put all of your wig hair up into a clip, leaving only an inch width of hair down around the back hairline and ears. Thread your needle.

Sew the lace to the corn rows you created starting at one side of the head just above the ear and continue to sew moving along the back hairline until you reach just above the other ear. Use a slip knot to tie off the thread when complete.

Rub the alcohol with your cotton pad around the back hairline two times to cleanse that area, then apply the scalp protector. Apply a thin layer of hair adhesive around the back hairline and press down firmly on the lace using the back of your comb.

Allow lace and adhesive approximately ten minutes to dry then comb and style your hair.

Lace front wigs are a popular choice for celebrities. Due to the lace hairline, it is impossible to tell the difference between your real hair and the wig. Recently, lace front wigs have become widely available to everyone. Although the application process usually requires adhesive products that only a professional can properly use, there are some lace front wigs that you can apply at home without tape or glue.

Purchase a lace front wig with comb grips. Some of the newest types of lace front wigs will come with combs on the inside. The combs are located on the right- and left-hand side of the wig, closest to your temples. If your local beauty supply store does not carry the new lace front, purchase it online.

Prep your hair for application. If your hair is long, put it into cornrows. If you have short hair, purchase and apply a wig cap. Use alcohol or witch hazel around the forehead to remove the dirt and oil that can damage your lace.

Wash your hands. Do not remove the lace front wig from the package until you have removed excess dirt and oils, which can ruin the quality of your lace front.

Cut the excess lace from the wig. Cut the lace close to the hairline of the wig, but do not cut the hairs.

Apply the lace wig. Place the wig on your head so that the inside combs are gripping your natural hair and the tip of the wig is laying on top of your natural hairline.

Style your hair. Most wigs come styled. However, you can alter this by cutting and styling it yourself. Be advised that you cannot apply heat to synthetic hair. Purchase 100% human hair if you want to curl or flat-iron your wig.

Lace wigs have hidden, stretchable lace at the forehead that you glue -- temporarily -- to your skin for a custom fit. A well-fitting and attractive wig may soon become your favorite, which makes regular maintenance a must to keep it smelling and looking nice. The glue that makes a wig fit so securely on your head can leave behind a gummy residue. Keep your wig looking natural with a proper cleaning technique that takes just minutes.

Step 1

Wipe away any residue from previous wear with a warm, damp cloth. Rub at the glue or tape gently, saturating the bond with the warm cloth. Lift away any glue clumps or tape.

Step 2

Dip a small sponge in 99 percent isopropyl alcohol. Rub the soaked sponge over any wig tape or glue bonds. Do not soak the entire wig in alcohol, because this could dry out or damage your wig. After one or two minutes, lift the tape or glue away with your fingers. If you prefer, use your wig manufacturer's recommended adhesive release spray instead of the alcohol.

Step 3

Shampoo the entire wig with wig shampoo. This last step should remove any remaining tape or glue left on the wig. Treat any stubborn spots with another dab of alcohol or adhesive release spray. Scrub the residue away using a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Lace-front wigs are a great way to update your style and appearance without making a long-term commitment, such as cutting or coloring your natural hair. Lace-front wigs are constructed with a skin-toned lace base as opposed to a machine weft base. It is this lace-constructed base that allows lace-front wigs to display a seamless hairline, making visual detection difficult. To achieve nature-looking results, the wig must be blended properly, which requires proper application. Proper blending application will make the difference between a flawless finish or a good wig gone bad.

Comb your natural hair back and away from your face with a wide-tooth comb. Use a brush to tame any stray hairs.

Cover your natural hair with a wig cap.

Place the lace wig onto a wig head base.

Style the wig into a ponytail hairstyle and secure with ponytail holders.

Remove the wig from the wig head base.

Cut the visible excess lace from the wig with a pair of scissors. Cut as close as possible to the hairline without actually cutting into the hairline.

Moisten a cotton pad with a small amount of alcohol. Wipe the cotton pad across your forehead from ear to ear. This will remove unwanted oil from your forehead for proper wig blending and application. Allow the alcohol to dry for two to three minutes.

Place the wig on your head and maneuver until you find natural-looking placement for the wig and wig hairline.

Outline the placement of the wig by creating several dots along the forehead with an eyeliner.

Remove the wig and set it aside.

Apply an even layer of lace wig glue across your forehead from ear to ear. It is important to stay within the eyeliner-dotted area of the skin.

Leave the glue to set on the forehead for at least 20 to 25 seconds, or until it is tacky.

Replace the wig onto the head according to the eyeliner dotted area.

Press the hairline of the wig into the glue using a wide-tooth comb.

Allow the wig set for 20 to 30 minutes, then remove the ponytail holders and style as desired.

How to Apply Full Lace Wigs

4/25/2020 6:11 AM

Full lace wigs look natural and stay put when you put them on correctly. They can even be worn during most sports activities without coming off. Put on your full front lace wig the right way so that only you will know that those luxurious locks are not yours.

Put on a flesh-colored wig cap, tucking all of your hair inside the cap. Adjust the wig cap so it sits at your front hairline. If you don't want to wear a wig cap, comb your hair back away from your scalp line.

Trim the lace on the full lace wig. This only needs to be done the first time you use your wig, and it does not need to be done if the lace has already been trimmed by the manufacturer. To trim the lace, put the wig on your head. Use hair clips to fasten the wig hair back away from your scalp line. Trim any lace that sticks out past the wig hairline using a pair of sharp scissors. Cut small amounts of lace at a time to avoid accidentally cutting too much. Be careful not to cut any of the wig hair. Leave a little bit of lace sticking out past the wig hairline, but no more than 1 inch.

Clean the skin by your hairline with a cotton ball dampened with isopropyl alcohol to remove body oils that could prevent the wig adhesive from sticking properly.

Apply scalp protector to the skin by your hairline. This only is necessary if you have sensitive skin.

Attach wig tape to the edges of the full lace wig. The tape is applied to the edges of the lace around the underside of the wig. Wig tape can be used alone or in combination with wig adhesive.

Apply a thin layer of wig adhesive to your scalp using a cotton swab. Allow the wig adhesive to dry for the length of time recommended on the label directions. Wig adhesive can be used alone or in combination with wig tape.

Position the full lace wig on your head. The easiest way to find the front-center of the wig is to part the hair on the wig. Parting the hair will reveal the hairline. The middle of the wig hairline should line up with the middle of your forehead at your hairline. Press down on the edges of the wig for five seconds to make the adhesive stick to your skin. Style the wig as desired.

These types of ponytails feature a drawstring and small combs which are used to attach the ponytail to a person's natural hair. Like other weave hairpieces, drawstring ponytails are available in a wide range of colors, lengths, textures, styles and prices.

Brush your natural hair in the direction you want the ponytail to go, then apply gel or your favorite styling product on your hair and edges to give your hair a firm hold.

Use an elastic band to put your hair into a secure ponytail. Wrap the hair that is in the ponytail around the base of the ponytail to make a bun. Secure the bun with two bobby pins.

Place the drawstring ponytail over your natural ponytail and secure it with the attached clips.

Pull the drawstrings on the ponytail tightly so that the drawstring ponytail completely covers the ponytail you made of your natural hair.

Wrap the drawstring around the base of the ponytail and secure it with two bobby pins.

Wrap a ponytail holder around the base of the drawstring ponytail to make it look more natural.

How to Take Care of Yaki Hair

4/11/2020 6:36 AM

The growing popularity of wigs and weaves may make it difficult to decide which is the best choice of hair for you. Yaki human hair is a viable option for black women because the texture of Yaki hair imitates the texture of black hair that has been permed or straightened. Therefore, it looks more natural. If Yaki hair is properly cared for and maintained, it can be used repeatedly for long-lasting hairstyles.

Wash the hair using a shampoo made for dry or damaged hair. If you are washing a lace-front wig, wash the hair on a mannequin or wig head to ensure that the hair stays in place and you have control.

Spray anti-frizz serum on the hair while it's wet to keep it smooth.

Allow the hair to air dry. Do not use a flat iron on the hair unless absolutely necessary. If you do straighten the hair, put the iron on a low setting.

Brush or comb the hair gently. Hair can be combed wet or dry. However, don't overcomb or brush the hair too much to avoid excess shedding.

Yaki Straight
