What is a Lace Front Wig?
Lace front wigs are manufactured with a thin lace that extends from ear to ear across the hairline, about 4inches/ 6inches width, and the back area is machine wefts. When you receive the unit the lace will be really long in the front, you will cut the lace along the front of the unit. The goal here is to create a new hairline. You will not cut all of the lace, as you will apply adhesive to the lace/your new hairline.
Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that it is growing directly from your head.
What is a Full Lace Wig?
Full lace wigs are manufactured with a cap, and a thin lace is sewn on top of the cap. Individual hairs are sewn into the thin lace.
Full lace wigs will have lace all around the unit, and require the lace to be cut all around the unit. You will be cutting a hairline around your entire head. By doing so, once done you can wear your hair anyway you like, ponytails, up-dos etc. Think about it. With the wig, you have just cut yourself a new hairline around your entire head.
Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front, back, and sides of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that all of the hair is growing directly from your head.
What is the difference between a lace front wig and a full lace wig?
A lace front wig has lace that extends from ear to ear across the hairline, and back is machine weft. A full lace wig is all handmade, available for being worn in a high ponytail, which will give a more natural looking than lace front wigs, it can be parted anywhere you want.
What are Bleached Knots?
Bleached knots mean bleaching out the knots which are caused during tying each strand of hair into lace by hand at the base of the cap. By this, the knot will be a lighter and the whole lace wig will look more natural similar to its own natural hair. On dark color hair, we suggest you use this procedure. The lace wig with bleached knots will also look natural.
Tips: all the products in our web has bleached knots before shipment except hair color in 1# jet black and 1b# off black cause it is too dark to bleach.

For straight hairs, Yaki perm straight and light Yak hair, you can use hot curling or flat ironing, because these hairs are naturally curly or wavy.

The hair cuticle has been stripped by using an acid-bath. With Virgin Hair we do this so the hair cuticle is intact, therefore the hair is stronger.

How shall I prevent the lace wig from tangling?
You may choose a satin pillowcase for night sleep in order to avoid friction. Cotton pillowcases with fibers rub against your hair; oppositely, satin pillowcases let the hair slip freely. Also for a cheaper cost, you can place a satin petticoat or nightie over your cotton pillows. However, the effects will be also obviously different. Do not wear any barrettes or clips on your hair overnight as these accessories will be difficult to remove after one night. Also during washing hair, tangles may be also created due to scrubbing the hair. Before showering, you need to detangle the hair and apply Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo on your scalp. If you rinse the Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo onto the hair enough, there is no need to scrub the hair, and by this, the hair will be cleaned well. Later, you shall comb through your hair with a wide-toothed comb and make the conditioner rinse onto your hair. By this way, you do not need to take detangling on wet hair. Let the hair dry naturally instead of rubbing it by a towel.
Keep Your Hair Tied Up: Loose hair easily get tangled and damaged due to rubbing with your clothes and being caught by straps of handbags. The most proper to protect hair from tangling is to make braids. You may practice braiding your hair during the night. When you have been already with the skill for braids, you can wear braids in various types during the day.
Meanwhile, buns are also a way for the protection of hair from tangles. By this method, we can keep short hair out of harmfulness.
Removing Knots From Hair: Bobble-tipped brushes might cause damage to your hair and cannot remove any knots as you suppose. You shall use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle the hair starting from the bottom several inches to up towards. You can begin with the bottom of a knot and remove it out, instead of pulling it widely. After detangling, you shall take a boar bristle brush for polishing and protecting your hair from damage.
How can I avoid my hair from shedding?
Here are some tips helpful on prevention of shedding hair overfull.
It is all right for light shedding, but if the hair shedding on your full lace wig is more than our natural hair, this will be abnormal.
Be sure NOT TO apply any products including alcohol onto the hair of your full lace wig, such as some kinds of hair spray, because these improper products will lead to damage the hair and hair shedding will be found easily.
You may braid up the hair of your full lace wig or tie it in a ponytail before going to sleep so as to avoid any tangles. You'd better use a scarf on your head or a hair bonnet when sleeping, which will reduce less breaking and shedding of the hair for your full lace wig.
Remember that chlorine and salt water may cause damage to the hair of full lace wig, so you need to wear a swim cap during swimming or wash the full lace wig after swimming to avoid chlorine and salt water left on the hair of your wig. After washing, use TDi Knot & Tape Tab Sealer to seal the knots onto the inside of your lace wig cap again in order to firm the knots on each hair tile for protection from shedding
What is a weft?
A weft is strands of hair that have been sewn on by machine or hand-tied along one edge to create a line of hair. The hand-tied hair is a much smaller and thinner weft than the machine weft. Hand-tied hair is also more secure because the weft has been individually made by hand, which means less shedding. Also, since the weft is less bulky it makes it flatter and less visible to give a more natural look.
Why Wear Hair Extensions?
There are many reasons why people wear hair extensions. It may be that you can only grow short hair and wish for longer hair. This has often been common with people with afro-curls but many now many more people are wearing hair extensions to either give them a new look or to wear on a special occasion like a wedding. Hair extensions are also worn by people who have lost hair because of a medical condition or premature baldness.
Can I use a blow dryer, straightener or tongs on my extensions?
Human hair products can be styled just like your own hair. But just as too much heating can dry out your own hair; the same is true with extensions. Some synthetic hair extensions can also be heated but often only with low heat tools.
Can hair extensions damage my own hair?
No, not as long as it is done properly by a professional and the hair is properly cared for afterward.
Can I re-use extension hair?
Some hair extensions can be reused but it often depends on how the hair is taken care of, some high-quality hair extensions may be re-used if only the hair care instructions are followed.
