Lace wigs are a staple in the wig wearers arsenal. They’re one of the more versatile forms of hair, with a wide variety of lengths and styles to choose from. For those looking for extra length and volume (or who want to add length without losing their hair), lace wigs are a great option. But how long do lace wigs last? Let’s take a look at five things you need to know!
1. Lace Wigs Are Versatile, but They Don’t Last Forever
If you want to rock a lace front wig, you have to make sure that you take really good care of it. Wearing a lace wig is a lot like wearing a weave, it’s not meant to last forever. The only thing that’s guaranteed is that as you wear your wig it’ll snag and tangles a little bit. This will wreak havoc with your style and you may find that the crown keeps getting caught and unsightly.
Like other wigs, lace wigs can be cared for by scrubs, styling aids, and even hair relaxers! In the right hands, regular styling will leave your wig looking its best, but if you want to get brilliant results more quickly, consider cuddling up to a braiding kit before your crinkly havoc ensues.
If you’re going to wear a lacy wig you may find yourself needing to invest in the firm, rootless ribs or bobby socks. Not only will these socks keep your hair secure, but they’ll keep it very cool and set up your wig for style. When it comes to wigs, the joints will wear down after a period of frequent wear, so don’t just throw on some leggings and call it good. If you have curly hair, you may find that this style of wig doesn’t hug your curls as well as a sleek wing or Bobbie wigs. A braid with a short ponytail might suffice, but it’s not the same.
2. How Long Do Lace Wigs Last? It All Depends on How You Take Care of It
Human Lace wigs are the perfect way to switch up your hairstyle without sacrificing the health of your natural hair. These wigs are made with a lace base that allows your scalp to breathe while the hair fibres are sewn onto the base. Depending on how well you take care of your wig, you may be able to wear it for several months or even years. Here are three of the common reasons wigs fail.
If you see that your hair is falling out in clumps because the wig is too short, here are a few things you can try:
But if your hair keeps falling out at the same rate, your natural hair is just as likely to be the culprit. If you notice that the bald patches or thinning hair are getting worse rather than better, you may need to consider a different type of wig.
3. What Factors Can Affect the Lifespan of Your Lace Wig?
The 4 factors to consider when trying to make your lace wig last are:
1. The type of hair you buy.
2. How often do you wear your wig.
3. How you take care of your wig.
4. How you store your wig between usage.
Remember, the beauty of lace wigs is that they can be customized and changed to suit your hair type, style, and style of wearing. For example, some people love updos, while others prefer their hair tamed and curled. And there’s variety within the styling, too: some women prefer to have a shorter or longer rabbit strop, while others may prefer a bangs-style style.
If you’re looking for a woggle, here’s what you should know: Lace wigs with adjustable caps are typically tougher to keep clean. If you’re going to use them after washing them regularly, this may hamper their longevity. If you decide to wash your wig regularly, always follow the soap and rinse guidelines listed on the packaging.
4. Here Are Some Tips on How to Extend the Life of Your Lace Wig!
It is important to remember that there are some rules you should follow to extend the life of your lace wig. Here are some tips to follow:
1) Wash and condition your wig before wearing it.
2) Comb your wig with a wide-tooth comb.
3) Don’t use heat tools on your wig. All of this will prolong the life of your lace wig, as heat can damage the hair.
4) Ask a professional stylist to apply your wig if it is not coiled or twisted.
5) Never place your wig in a plastic bag, and if you use wax, use a good quality product. Lastly, often a wig will need styling before it becomes too damaged to wear.
There are so many different length options for lace-wig wigs.
How Many Styles Do You Prefer?
A staple of the costume industry, lace wigs come in a large variety of lengths and styles. It is often difficult to determine the correct length for many styles and hair types. The good news is, there are a few tricks you can use to find out the right length for your lace wigs: Lace up your hair with a hairdryer and hold it for about 60 seconds. Holding the wig in one hand and blowing out the excess air will help you determine if your wig is coiled or if it has twists and turns. A coiled hair is fluffier than loose hair, and if your wig has twists, waves, or curls, these may need to be rolled or curled. The heat setting on your hairdryer can also tell you whether your wig is curly, shaggy, or down. If your blonde wig has short hair but you want to keep it curled, take your hair to a curler for extra hold.
5. What’s the Best Way to Care for Your Lace Wig?
The best way to care for your lace wig is to store it in a cool, dry place. After wearing your wig, remove the lace wig from the head and brush it out. Always use a wig cap to protect your natural hair from the heat of the wig.
For extra softness and volume, curl your hair using a curling iron and/or stretch it using a heat gun. The latter method is great for wigs without highlights. Damaged or infested wigs may require professional pickup.
If your wig doesn’t have a parting in the middle, it may be necessary to buy a parting add-on to help cover the bald spot. Lace wigs, whether natural or blow-dried, will shrink drastically once they’re removed from the head. That means simply taking them off isn’t enough to make room for new hair growth, so you should invest in a give-rootzer.
