Lace wigs are a category of wigs, which are mainly distinguished from the base of net cap that is made of Swiss lace, in addition, we have hair weft,toupee, hair bundles, hair clip in extensions.

Most people care more and more on the life-time of the wig, we completely understand their concerns, we do try our best to achieve the maximum balance on value and pay, because the longer they wear, the more valuable the wigs get.

The first important point is the material of the net cap, the life time varies based on different materials.

Usually, the hair net of the wig mainly uses lace net, polyester fiber, Mono net or silk net

By durability, Mono mesh and lace mesh are the best. For lace mesh, it can be divided into French lace, Swiss lace and German lace, among of them, Swiss lace has the best durability.

The second important one is the material of hair, there are two kinds of material for hair material, synthetic and human hair, the most natural-looking one is human hair, it swings and falls the same as the natural hair does.

How to improve the performance and durability of the wig?
  • The material of the net cap

The full Swiss lace hair net wig can be used for 2-3 months, but if a thin PU of polyester fiber is added on the outside, its durability will be greatly improved, and it can be used for 4-6 months.

Thin PU wigs can also be used for 4-6 months, and the highly durable Mono net bottom can be used for 8-12 months. If a thin PU is added on the outside, the lifespan will be relatively improved.

  • The material of the hair

Generally more realistic wigs are made from real human hair, which maximizes the natural-looking and imperceptible appearance. So we use human hair to sew each hair on net cap to extend the life-time for wearing, double weft to prevent shedding, keep the cuticles along one direction, full thick ends without splits.

  • Frequently/over restyle(dye or iron)

In order to meet the needs of most customers, the color of some wigs may be pre-processed, that is, dyed into the color that customers like. In this case, the hair of the wig becomes relatively fragile, and the lifespan will also be affected to a certain extent. The lifespan of human hair wigs is not too long, but we need to be maintained with our confidence like real hair, because proper maintenance can prolong the service life of wigs and keep them in good condition at all times.

Besides maintenance, over restyling is one of factors affecting life of wigs, we avoid over dying or ironing or high temperature contacting.

Because the wig loses the nutrients provided by the hair follicle, once it is damaged, it cannot be repaired. Excessive perming and dyeing will damage the hair and shorten the life cycle of the hair weft. If you want to prolong the life of your wig or hair bundles as much as possible, then try to stay away from those hairdressing tools that will release high temperature, and maintain the wig regularly. It’s the same way as your natural hair, that is why we need to buy wig rather than directly perm or dye on our natural hair.

There are many factors affecting the lifetime of the wigs, as long as we following the steps, it can extends at least 8 or 12 months or longer.

How long does the wig last?
  • Wash once every 10-15 days, do not dry in the sun:

The wig, hair bundles, toupee or hair extensions may also accumulate a lot of ash, sweat, bacteria, or adhesive residue after wearing it for a few days, these can cause hair damage, because the hair on the wig is crocheted into the hair net, if these pollutants continue to accumulate, the hair will become easy to fall out, but it can’t be washed as often as our own natural hair, which will also cause damage to the wig.

For hairpieces that are often worn, it is recommended to wash them once every 10-15 days. Do not twist and rub with your hands when washing, so as to avoid damage to the hair. After washing, put it in a ventilated place to dry, and do not expose it to the sun. For hair care ,highly recommended to use a leave-in conditioner daily instead of a rinse-off conditioner to keep hair soft and tangle-free.

  • Prevent exposure to sunlight and avoid oxidation

Long-term exposure of wigs to sunlight and excessive ultraviolet radiation will make the hair orange or red, it’s called is oxidation, but Oxidation is a normal process. This happens whether it is a human hair wig or a chemical fiber/synthetic hair wig, but this It is a gradual process. It does not mean that it is directly oxidized after being exposed to the sun one twice, meaning, the color of your hair wigs will gradually change after months of sun exposure. Therefore, if you usually like to stay outdoors for a long time or exercise. Be sure to use sunscreen and UV-protective toiletries to avoid oxidation of hair and premature aging.

  • Reduce friction and extend life

Sebum is the oil produced by the hair follicles of the scalp. It can provide natural conditioning for our natural hair and nourish our hair. However, for human hair wig or synthetic wig, hair bundles, toupee, hair weft, the natural sebum secreted by the scalp cannot be obtained, and there is no natural source of nutrition. So wigs can easily become dry and prone to friction.

So how to avoid friction?

The pillow we sleep on is the one that rubs the most with our hair, so it’s best to replace your pillowcase with satin or silk, which can greatly reduce the friction of the hair and keep it soft, at the same time, avoid excessive combing wigs, which also create friction, daily use of a leave-in conditioner can protect the hair, make it soft and reduce friction, while also extending the life.

  • Avoid excessive hot dyeing

Although wigs can indeed be permed and dyed, just like our own natural hair, too much perm will cause damage to the hair to a certain extent, and wigs do not have hair follicles to transport nutrients for repair. Once damaged, it will be difficult to recover, so the most important thing is not to perm and dye over frequently. We recommended to use professional wig care products to supplement nutrition for the hair and restore the luster and suppleness of the hair.

  • Avoid long-lasting hair spray mousse

Some people usually like hair spray, Perth, gel water, etc., these substances must completely rinse the residual gelatin when cleaning the wig. If the gelatin remains for a long time, it will cause damage to the hair net cap and shorten the life of the wig.

  • Correct maintenance method of wig

In order to make the best use of the wig, make sure that your scalp and natural hair are completely dry and free of any oil before wearing. Make sure that the wig is in the correct position and can be firmly fixed when wearing it.

How to mantain your wig?

Good wigs are more expensive. If you plan to wear your wig all the time, you must properly treat it to prolong its service life. After using it for a period of time, it is best to properly clean the wig. To keep your wig fresh and natural looking, once you take off your wig, be sure to clean the residue in time.

  1. Comb: After taking off the wig, it is generally necessary to comb it out before washing, otherwise the tangled wet hair will damage the hair fiber and the root of the hair, which will eventually cause the wig to fall out. For wigs, use a wig-specific comb as much as possible. If you don’t have one, you can also use a wide-tooth comb;
  2. Shampoo: Whether it is natural hair or wigs, shampoo should be used when cleaning, but not all shampoos are suitable for cleaning wigs. First of all, according to the type of your wig, use the recommended shampoo, and carry out proper treatment on the wig. Cleaning to remove external contamination or other residues on it.
  3. Rinse: After washing with shampoo, please rinse by warm water till no foam seen like your natual hair washing method. Avoid using hot water(over 50 degree) and make sure you have thoroughly cleaned off all foam.
  4. Maintenance: After cleaning the wig, it is not enough. You also need to maintain it. Otherwise, the wig will not have hair follicles to provide continuous nutrition, and it will easily become dry and frizzy. Therefore, after cleaning the wig, use some conditioner and other products that care wigs to help restore luster, and look more natural. Conditioner is essential as it provides nutrients and moisture to the hair, reducing the risk of breakage and tangle.
  5. dry wig: After washing the wig, use a towel to absorb the moisture on it, do not rub it, and then put it in a ventilated place to dry naturally. Try to avoid using heating tools such as a hair dryer on the wig, otherwise it will not be healed once it is damaged. If you follow the above maintenance steps, your wig can stay in perfect condition for a long time. Conditioner oils protect your hair every time you blow dry or smooth it out. It adds texture to hair, retains humidity and protects wigs from heat waves, creating a safe barrier.
