Regular cleaning routine


Your full lace wig needs to be cleaned frequently to get rid of dirt, oil, and other buildup, just like your natural hair does. For most full lace wigs, I wash them once every 2-4 wears since they would not be too dirty and frizzy. Nevertheless, you need the soft products, as they won't harm your lace or the hair.

Cleaning process

Firstly, you should start by applying a tiny amount of wig shampoo to a sink or basin of lukewarm water before washing your wig. Then you gently swirl the wig in the water, but don't rub or overly agitate the hair. Clean water should be used to properly rinse the wig until all shampoo has been eliminated. After washing, you can use wig-specific conditioner to soften and detangle the hair. Finally, rinse your hair well after allowing the conditioner stay on your hair for a little while. Be sure not to rinse it straight away, leaving it on for a few more minutes will make your hair smoother.

No heat is better

How to dry your wigs

Full lace wigs are typically made from top-notch materials, but heat styling tools like flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers can still cause damage to them. If blow drying is required, you had better keep the dryer moving and at least 18 inches away from the wig to avoid overheating any area of the wig. Additionally, a spray bottle filled with water facilitates blow drying while also protecting fibers and distributing heat more evenly.

How to fix your look

Instead, you can choose for gentler styling techniques like air drying or roller sets instead of utilizing any heat styling equipment at all. This will guarantee that your wig lasts as long as possible and help avoid hair breakage. Besides, be cautious and avoid pulling or tugging on the hair when combing or styling your full lace wig. The gentle way is starting at the ends and working your way up, carefully untangle the hair with a wide-tooth comb or wig brush made especially for wigs.

Keep your wig in a suitable place

When you're not wearing your full lace wig, one of the most crucial things you can do to prolong its lifespan is to preserve it properly. The best place to keep your wig is on a mannequin head or wig stand, which will help keep it in form and keep it from getting tangled. Since I dont have a mannequin head or wig stand, I usually protect them with a thin plastic bag, storage cap, or wrap.

Whats more, hair strands may eventually fade and become brittle from exposure to sunshine. So when wearing and storing your wig, keep it away from direct sunlight.

Give it a breathing room

It could seem tempting to sleep with your full lace wig in order to maintain your hairstyle, but doing so will eventually cause damage to the wig. While you sleep, the hair on your wig may become matted and tangled, which can be difficult to remove.

Instead, remove your wig before going to bed and leave it perched on a mannequin head or wig stand. In this way, tangles won't develop, and the wig's shape will be retained. If you still have any problems, find answers from FANCIVIVI!

A full lace wig can appear and feel natural for a very long time with proper maintenance, despite the possibility of lace line or trim splits occurring sometimes over time. Hope your beauty never fade!
