What is Silk top?
The silk top, consist 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.
A lightweight mesh or nylon cap worn underneath the wig to help keep hair in place.
The hair wigs should be washed in cool water with a mild shampoo and conditioner. (Using conditioner is highly recommended to reduce tangling.) Do not scrub the wig, just swish it from side to side. Wigs should be hung to dry.
After washing, comb the hair then set in rollers with rolling papers and setting lotion. Put the wig under a sitting hair drier on low heat for 40 to 50 minutes. If you do not have access to a sitting drier, the wig may be left on a wig stand or Styrofoam overnight or until completely dried.
Once dry, take out the rollers and style the wig as desired.
When wigs are not in use, they may be stored in a hair net and plastic bag or on a wig stand, such as Styrofoam when traveling; a styled wig may be carried in a wig box to prevent flattening.

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, 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 tires 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 stimulate your scalp color.
you can use a special gel to wrap your own hair flat including the fine hairs on the hair line protecting them from the glue and adhesive tapes
What If I have experienced severe hair loss due to an illness or chemical damage? Is this type of wig right for me?
Absolutely! I 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.
How to attach the 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.
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 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.
