Hairs are hand-knotted into a sheer lace material that lays along the forehead. This material should blend in with the skin and make it look like the hairs are growing right out of your own scalp! There’s no other wig feature that will give you that real-looking hairline. \n\nStyle: Style Society by Raquel Welch\nLace Front Wigs Lifespan\nThe wig’s hair fiber determines the lifespan of a lace front wig.

If your wig is too small, you risk warping and stretching out the delicate lace material and effectively damaging the wig. If your wig is too big, your lace front will not lay flat against the forehead, and you won't achieve that seamless look you desire.

First, you should wash your wig every 8-10 wears using clean products made for alternative hair and wigs. We recommend BeautiMark products as they are the best for cleansing and refreshing wigs.

So, when washing your lace front wig, it's crucial to cleanse the base material and treat it with care. During your washing routine, make sure to cleanse the lace front material by using circular motions with your fingers to release those elements.\nAnother tip for lace front wigs is to NOT apply conditioner or detangling sprays too close to the lace front material. These hydrating sprays can loosen the hand-knotted hair and cause fiber loss.

A closet is an excellent option for wig storage because it will be kept away from the elements and children or pets. We recommend using a wig stand or mannequin head in order to keep the shape and style of your wig.

This tip allows you to rotate between the styles so one wig doesn't get worn out too quickly. Also, having multiple wigs helps with your wash routine. This way, you can always have one clean wig available in case of personal inconveniences or unforeseen weather changes.\nWe hope this article has helped you understand more about lace front wigs and how to extend the life of your wig investment through proper care, fit, and rotation.
