How to Care

 

Important "Do's" and "Don'ts'' 

Aftercare for your Extensions

Now you have that beautiful long thick hair you have always wanted, here’s a few things you may need to know.

Your new hair will last between 3 - 6 months, however the exact amount of time will depend on YOU, and how you care for them.

Following the below guidelines will ensure you get the maximum usage from your extensions.

Regular maintenance appointments will keep your extensions looking their best.

You must be prepared to spend longer styling your hair now you have hair extensions, they take more time and effort and will need to be

looked after correctly to prolong the life of your new hair. But its worth the extra time and effort.

** REMEMBER HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE HIGH MAINTENANCE **

Your new extensions may cause some discomfort for the first week as you are adjusting to the extra weight and thickness. This could

include scalp tenderness, itching or mild headache. The first few nights may also be uncomfortable, but this soon passes. In the first few

weeks you may lose the odd extension or possibly experience some shedding while the extensions are settling down, but this is normal

and does settle down.

Your extensions are 100% human hair, so can be colored, cut and styled with the use of hairdryers, curling irons or straighteners.

Maintenance is advised every 6-8 weeks. The exact amount of time will depend on how the extensions have been cared for and your own

hair growth. The maintenance will consist of moving all strands or some strands especially around the hair line back up to the root,

putting back in your lost strands, replacing any micro rings where necessary and general tidying up of all bonds.

Do’s and Don’ts’s

DO Brush your hair extensions on a regular basis to ensure they do not tangle and keep looking its best, while holding tight on the base

just beyond the bonds to minimize the pulling tension that may causing extensions to slip-out, especially when the hair is wet

One of the most important safety feature if the NANO BONDING! The bond will slip-out in the case of extra strain so to

minimizing breakage.   

 DO Ensure you thoroughly rinse all traces of shampoo and conditioner after washing your hair

 DO Invest in a good extension brush and an extension detangling comb

 DO Be extremely gentle with your extensions at all times

 DO Keep extensions tied up during swimming (both pool and sea) , if you do get your hair wet you must ensure you rinse out any

chlorine or sea water as soon as possible as they can cause your extensions to dry out, in the same way they dry out your own natural

hair.

 DO Tie your extensions back at night, preferably a loose braid or pony tails to minimize any tangles in the morning.

DON’T tie your hair back to tightly, this can pull on the bonds causing them to weaken.

DONT put conditioner onto the roots of your hair

DON’T use any of the following: HOT OILS, ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOOS or HEAD LICE TREATMENTS, these are extremely harsh and can

cause damage to the condition of your extensions and the bonds causing them to loosen.

And lastly.........Enjoy it..... you now have beautiful long thick full hair !!!!

Your scalp may feel tender and this may cause a mild headache – in some instances the extra weight can cause your scalp to itch, but

any discomfort should dissipate over the first few days of the hair extensions being attached.

If you’re using micro ring hair extensions, then they can last up to 14 weeks.

As hair grows about a centimeter a month hair can look quite clumpy by that time, so you may want to remove them sooner rather than

later – 8 – 10 weeks is optimum. How long your micro loop hair extensions last have a lot to do with how they are maintained, including

washing and drying as well as combing brushing and styling. Ideally micro ring extensions should not be washed more than twice a week

- be sure to rinse out all the shampoo and conditioner you use.

 How To Put On Your Full Lace Wig?

Prepare your hair by creating a flat surface for the unit to sit on.

You can braid your hair down, and/or apply a wig cap, or use a special scalp protective solution to wrap your hair with.

  GRO-PROTECT SOLUTIONS, please follow the directions!  this is a smart way of protecting your hair line from the glue and

adhesive and to get your hair as flat as possible in order to make the wig fitting look more natural 

Fit the unit on your head and evaluate how and where you would like the hairline. The goal is to find where the hairline will

look most natural.

Gradually start trimming the excess lace as you are now creating your hairline. Only cut small amounts off at a time to

achieve the desired fit.

After you have finished trimming the lace, clean all around your hairline with soap and water and then clean with surgical

spirit. Wait for this to dry and then apply your scalp protector. This protects the scalp from the adhesive and also provides a

better surface for the adhesive to adhere to the unit. Once again, wait for the scalp protector to dry then apply adhesive to

the circumference of your head. Let the adhesive dry tacky to the touch. Place the front of your unit onto your head first. In

this way, it will be easier for you to accurately judge the center of the unit and most importantly, the final fit. Press firmly

down all the way around and when finished, let your unit rest, preferably for 24 hours. During this time, you should not get

your new unit wet.

How to avoid the tangle and shedding?

When you wash the hair, please use neutral shampoo and spring water or distilled water. Attention: please DO NOT use tap

water; tap water is filled with many chemicals and chlorine which can cause tangles. Non-neutral shampoo can cause

shedding also.

How to remove the full lace wig?

Pull all hair up into a ponytail, so you do not get adhesive on the hair.

Apply the lace adhesive remover to the adhesive around the perimeter of hairline

Gradually remove the lace. Be sure not to pull at the lace. Remove slowly.

After you have removed the lace, there may be some residue left on the unit.

You should shampoo the unit, and with a towel, delicately rub the residue away.

Finally, let the unit dry naturally. Once dry, you can re-apply and style your hair as you would normally style your natural hair.

Why choose Lace Wigs?

Lace wigs represent the latest technology for non-surgical hair replacement in the world today. A lace wig when designed

and constructed properly will be the closest thing to your own real hair, or can replace the hair you never had. It is the

most natural, most beautiful, hair replacement system imaginable today. It is made out of real human hair and hand tied

into a very sheer lace base one single hair at a time. It should look so natural that it can be virtually undetectable to

anyone, even at a distance of only a few inches away. You can wear it for weeks at a time without removing it. you can

comb your hair straight back, part it in the middle or even go swimming with it. There are no limitations to your look or

lifestyle. You can shower, sleep, perm, blow dry, iron, wash or do anything you would normally do. You can finally have the

hair you always dreamed about.

What is the difference between Lace Front Wigs and Full Lace Wigs?

The term "Lace Front Wig" and "Full Lace Wig" are virtually the same; a lace front wig, or other known as a full lace wig has

a very natural front hair line and is constructed with fine lace in the front and a variety of materials in the back of the head.

A full lace system is the ultimate system since it will look natural from every angle regardless of how the hair is brushed or

styled. The object of a lace front wig or a full lace wig is to look beautiful and natural. You do not want anyone to ever think

you are wearing a wig. A full lace system is usually preferred and is the ultimate in the style, design, beauty and

naturalness.

How long can the Lace Wig last?

A Lace Wig unit can last for many months or even years depending on your usage and upkeep. The types of glues that are

used during the application method also applies to the life span of your unit. For example, the lace wig can be compared to

the tires on a car; of course, the more you drive your car, the more worn down the tires become and the need for

replacement  becomes greater. The idea remains that if you plan to wear your wig more often, the natural need for a new

unit will become greater as the hair degrades due to extended periods of use.

Can I wear this wig even If I have my own hair?

Yes. You will have to make your own hair as flat as possible, by wrapping or braiding it. Then apply a flesh toned stocking

cap over your natural hair to simulate your scalp color.

What If I have experienced severe hair loss due to an illness or chemical damage? Is this type of wig right for

me?

Absolutely! We highly recommend this system for anyone with any kind of hair loss or undergoing chemotherapy. If you

suffer from a medical condition where you have experienced severe hair loss, it's recommended to proceed with full trench

or full swiss lace. This will ensure the most comfortable "perfect" fit.

Can I swim or go to the gym and sweat with this wig on?

Yes. You can do your usual activities with this wig on daily. Only avoid swimming or sweating for 24 hours after applying

adhesives and tapes. If you use the Safe Grip Copolymer bond, you only have to wait until it is dry. Other than that, no one

will ever know the hair is not growing from your own scalp. Also make sure you use a waterproof adhesive. Not all

adhesives and glues are waterproof. The combination of the scalp protector and safe grip polymer bond will ensure the

strongest and best water-resistant application available.

How to identify the human hair?

It is easy to see this for yourself when you receive your product. Simply remove a few strands of hair and burn them.

Human hair has natural proteins, so it is reduced to ash and produces an odor when it is burned. However, synthetic hair

melts into a sticky ball when burned, so it is very easy to tell the difference. Moreover, human hair may have a few gray

hairs or split ends. This is not a quality problem. It is very natural.

What is Bleached Knots?

When the hair is tied to the lace, a knot is made to secure the hair in place. Bleached knots are hand tied knots that have

been lighten to appear less noticeable. The bleached knots can't give you the complete undetectable knots. If you like

complete undetectable knots, you should choose the silk top.

What is Silk top?

The silk top, consists of a layer of lace, and silk fabric on the top front of the cap. When the hair is knotted, the knots are

below the silk concealed between the layers, the hair is then injected through the silk material making the knots 100%

invisible giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your scalp. There is no other ventilation technique that

creates a more flawless appearance than hidden knots on a silk top, you don’t need to bleach the knots, you don’t need to

worry about any other technique to make the knots invisible or less visible.

How to wash?

Gently brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush. Add one tablespoon of wig shampoo to a sink filled with cold water.

Immerse wig for one minute and agitate gently. Do not rub.

Rinse the wig gently in cold water twice or until thoroughly rinsed.

Blot the wig gently with a towel. Do not squeeze or wring.

Apply conditioning spray very lightly over the wig, spraying 10-12 inches from the wig.

Allow the wig to air dry on a slender object like a can of hairspray or a shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel.

Styrofoam heads may  stretch the cap.

Do not use a hair dryer. Air dry only. You may gently style the wig with your fingertips.

Brush  only when completely dry. Do not allow the wig to dry in direct sunlight.

The frequency of washing depends on factors such as air quality and humidity. Generally, a wig should be washed after it

has been worn 8-12 times, but this can vary.

How to maintain?

When combing the wig, please comb form the ends, then up to the roots.

If there are knots in the wig, do not pull on it strongly; instead steam the wig (such as by placing a hot towel over it.)

You may use specific oil for wig hair Glowmist Spray or Styling Spray to make it shinier.

Do not apply hair dye to the wig, but water based hair styling products may be used, such as wax and hair mousse.

When blow drying the wig, you must use low heat for a short period of time only to avoid damaging the wig.

You may get a hairstylist to style the wig if you prefer.
