Reasons for Damage

There could be many factors that cause damage to your pretty human hair wig. If you take care of these little things you can be saved from the pain of a damaged lace frontal.

1. Improper application

Buying a wig is the easiest part of slaying one and installing it is the most care worthy. Wig stylists advise you to get your wig installed by a professional if you are a newbie to it but you can also apply it with proper care.

If the wig is not properly installed it might cause problems in keeping it good for a long time.

2. Not cleaning it regularly

Does your real hair get all the dirt and oil in it if you don’t wash it properly? Same way, if your human hair wig is not cleaned regularly with an appropriate shampoo, the dirt and oil accumulate in it making it seem and feel dirty and dry.

3. Sweat

Sweat is natural and we can’t stop sweating, right? But cleaning your scalp regularly can help you get rid of sweat that would cause fungus and bad odor in your scalp. The fungus can lead to dandruff damaging your real hair as well!

4. Wrong glue or adhesives

Using the wrong glue or the wrong amount of glue can also cause damage to your human hair lace wig. Imagine applying a lot of glue to some part of your hair. Even the imagination is terrifying!

Using an excessive amount of wig glue on any part of the wig frontal can result in a completely damaged wig. Also, the wig can lose its grip really soon if the glue is not effective enough.

5. Overuse of the hair wig

What can be more harmful than making use of your favorite wig you love repeatedly without caring for it! Overusing your wig without giving it the proper TLC can result in damage great than you can even think of.

Once you have all the required tools in hand, you can fix your human hair lace frontal wig by yourself in little time.

1. Fix your matted lace frontal

Overused lace frontal wig loses its original shine and looks matted after several uses. The best and easiest way to cover up that matt look is by the use of a concealer. 

Use a rattail comb to part your wig evenly. Now apply the concealer along the parting, applying more of it into the center of the wig and lesser at the corners.

Put the concealer with great care and comb it off once it is set nicely. This will give a distinct look to the parting and the lace frontal wig masking the extra oil anywhere.

2. Fix your loose lace front wig

A loose lace front wig can be one of the most annoying things in your whole attire but you certainly don’t want to throw it away. If you still have that flawed lace front wig in your wardrobe let me tell you a trick that’s a total steal!

All you need is a gel called Got2B glue that can stick your lace frontal in place quickly.

Just dab four dots scattered along with your lace frontal and press them together. Make sure the edges are properly done.

3. Mend your torn lace frontal

You can fix your torn or ripped lace frontals with two easy methods

· Sewing

Sewing is surely one of the least difficult things discovered by mankind. You need a c needle, a nylon thread and a piece of lace. It is preferable to select the color of the thread that matches your wig and the lace. Using the c needle, just stitch the lace into the bald patch of the wig and you are good to go!

· Ventilating method

Ventilating method makes use of stitching as well but it seems like you are sewing a new hair wig. A ventilating needle comes with holes of different sizes that determine the number of hair strands it uses.

By using a ventilating needle, you keep on sewing the hair strands on the bald spots until you get it all covered.

Final Words

These are some easy and handy tips and tricks that can help you come out of the dilemma of damaged wigs. You can save your wig from being damaged by giving it proper care. Use these handy tricks whenever you think you need to throw your damaged wig and save your hard-earned investment from going into the bin.
