    a) Tips and Tricks for Liquid Bonding Adhesives:

    Below, a list of helpful tips to help you achieve the strongest and most secure bond possible.

    When applying the liquid adhesive, only use thin, even coats. If you are using a brush, use a paint movement with your hand in both directions - horizontal and vertical. If more adhesive is desired, use thin multiple coats, but make sure the previous coat is dry before applying the next coat.

    Never try to apply liquid bond directly to a lace system. Instead, apply it on your scalp and place the unit on your head. Always clean and prepare your scalp properly, with skin shield before attaching your full lace wig. Skin shield is a product,that provides a protective barrier against dermal irritation,while enhancing the effectiveness of skin-safe liquid or tape adhesives.

    After showering or working out, the bond of your full lace wig will seem like it is weakening, which is expected, then even if your hair system is still attached securely, the bond will soften a bit, due to extra heat and moisture, do not touch the unit then, because as your body cools, the bond will harden again.

    Airborne dust, make-up will attach itself to the adhesive in the front and side edges of lace units and may become visible over time. Immediately after a shower is the easiest time to clean this area because the hairpiece adhesive is pliable. Spray a liberal amount of Adjust-a-Bond on the tip of a double folded tissue. Hold your hair back with one hand and wipe the edge of the lace using the saturated tissue with the other hand.

    This trick will help keep your lace front and side edges invisible at all times.

    b) Tips and Tricks to avoid shedding

    Below, a list of helpful tips to avoid excessive shedding.

    Some light shedding is normal, however, your full lace wig should not shed anymore then our own hair would.

    DO NOT put any hair products that contain a high percentage of alcohol (like some hair spray, spritz, etc…) directly into the hair of your full lace wig. These products will damage the hair and cause excessive shedding).

    When going to sleep wearing your full lace wig, always braid up the hair or at least put it in a pony tail so it will not tangle up, while you sleep. Best is for you to wrap a scarf around your head or to wear a hair bonnet, while you are asleep,(see below section: Tips and Tricks to avoid damages while sleeping). This will prevent the hair of your full lace wig from breakage and shedding.

    When swimming wearing your full lace wig, keep in mind that chlorine, and salt water can damage the hair of the unit, therefore wear a swim cap or wash your full lace wig after each swim session. NEVER let chlorine and/or salt water stay in the hair of your full lace wig,as it will damage the hair of your unit irreversibly.

    Reseal the knots located on the inside of your full lace wig cap, after each and every wash, with some knot sealer. This will strengthen the knots on each hair strand and protect your full lace wig from excessive shedding.

    c) Tips and Tricks for Curly, Deep Wave and Wavy Styles

    Below, a moisturizer tip for Full lace wigs with a Curly, Deep Wave, Wavy Style.

    Wash and rinse your full lace wig gently but thoroughly, then spray until saturation, with a,1/4 Dove Moisturizing Conditioner, 1/4 of Glycerin and 2/4 plain water mixture*. Using a loop brush, brush it into shape. Cover your full lace wig with a hair net, and let it dry on top of a wig head. Once dry and you begin to wear it, you spray lightly with above mixture every 2-3 days or as needed. This will restore the initial shape, bounce and shine of the curls and/or the waves.

    *1/3 of Sunsilk Captivating Curls Lotion, 1/3 of glycerin and 1/3 of plain water mixture.

    d) Tips and Tricks for a long-lasting full lace wig

    The key factor in full lace wig care and maintenance, is to understand that your full lace wig is made of human hair, that is approximately 4 years old. Since hair grows on average a half inch per month, one year equates out to 6 inches. So since on the average 24 inches long hair is used to make a 20 inch unit, it is safe to say, that the hair of your unit has been exposed to the elements a minimum of 4 years, and now that hair has been removed from its nutrient source, to be made into your fabulous full lace wig, care and maintenance become that hair life support.

    Five main tools are required to properly care for your full lace wig: Shampoo, Conditioner, a rake, your pillow case and your hair wrap. These are the 5 key players and unfortunately not all options are created equally.

    A good rule of thumb for shampoo or conditioner is that if it costs between $10.00 and $20.00 for 8.5 oz then you have the right stuff. Since the shampoo and conditioner are keys to protecting the hair natural oils, these are two items that you will be best to invest into.

    Beyond washing your unit, you are going to style it and that is where the Rake comes in. Brushes and combs provide too much tension on the hair and will cause breakage and shedding. Use a Rake or even a Pick and toss the brush and comb and you will reduce greatly the tension put on the hair and the knots while styling your unit and therefore your full lace wig will last longer.

    e) Tips and Tricks to avoid damages of your full lace wig while sleeping

    Below a tip that is essential when asleep while wearing your hair unit

    If you are wearing your full lace wig to bed, you must choose to follow those sleep habits, to avoid damaging the hair of your unit.

    Use a wrap. Having the hair wrapped in a satin or silk wrap will reduce frictions on your unit when you move your head in your sleep. Also use a pillow case in satin or silk. The key here is that the pillow case MUST be the same material as your wrap. If your hair is wrapped in satin, have a satin pillow case. If the hair is wrapped in silk, have a silk pillow case. This will reduce greatly the tension and resistance between the two fabrics, avoid the occasional breakage and allows the hair to remain protected, while you sleep.

    f) Tips and Tricks for cold temperature

    Below, a tip to keep the hair of your full lace wig beautiful and strong

    Cold temperature, specially dry cold weather can damage, tangle and in some cases damage your hair unit irreversibly. Luckily, there are fantastic products on the market that can protect your hair from harsh drying climates. Hair Conditioning treatments, Hair Damage Repair kit , are an excellent for replenishing and protecting the hair of your full lace wig. Whichever brand your choose to use on your hair unit, it is ESSENTIAL that you make sure, that the product is free from alcohol.

    Whenever the hair of your full lace wig is a bit dry or if you want to ensure it will be protected from the elements follow these simple steps:

    1. Remove hair unit and wash gently.

    2. Apply a Hair Damage Repair or another high end conditioning treatment formulated for hair moisture replenishment. Do NOT use protein enriched conditioners.

    3. Put your full lace wig in a plastic bag and place in a warm area of your home. Do NOT microwave or apply direct heat, as it will damage your unit.

    4. Allow the bag to sit for 24 hours, then remove and rinse hair thoroughly in lukewarm water and allow to air dry.

    If you are wearing your hair unit full time, repeat this process every three weeks. Beware! There is a such thing as too much moisture and you want to maintain the human hair average natural ph levels as much as possible.

  • An Overview of Full Lace Wigs

    Posted on January 28th, 2009 admin 1 comment
    Daniel Millions asked:


    Regular wigs have been around for hundreds of years, but in today’s modern society, people usually do not like to be noticed as wearing a wig. There are a variety of hair growing products and operations, but for some people, that option is not practical. An alternative to the traditional style of wig is the full lace wig, which appears much more realistic than its older counterpart.

    Never heard of a full lace wig? The concept is relatively simple, and you have probably seen a wig of this nature at some point. Full lace wigs are made with a cap, and a lace is sewn on to the cap. On that lace, individual hairs are sewn, to make the wig look as natural as possible. A new hairline is made around your head, and the wig fits easily on. There is no limit to what you can do with the wig, including putting it in any arrangement that you desire.

    The greatest part of a full lace wig is that it looks so real. Hair actually appears to be growing straight out of the scalp. Regular wigs can be quickly identified, especially if one just takes a moment to analyze it. Full lace wigs are nearly unidentifiable, so most people will not be able to tell you are wearing a wig at all. Also, the hair used is human hair, not any synthetic substitutes which are of much lower quality.

    One can attach a wig to their head using two methods. They can either utilize double sided tape, or a liquid adhesive. Each option is equally applicable and neither one is better than the other. Whatever option is chosen, it should be made sure of that the product is high quality and durable. Durability is especially important for one who engages in a variety of intensive activities. If your bonding is not strong enough, it is possible that the wig will fall right off. In addition, tape and/or adhesive makes the hair look even more natural, by further accentuating the look of hair growing out of the head.

    Density is the thickness of hair, and when deciding on a full lace wig, one of the criteria is how dense you want the hair to be. Most natural hair is medium dense, but one can usually pull off having light or heavy dense hair, as some people look better with less dense/more dense hair. It really is a matter of personal preference. There is an average density for human hair, and that average is what defines light, medium, and heavy density. For example, light is considered sixty percent of normal density, medium is one hundred percent, and heavy is one hundred and fifty percent. Due to the fact that full lace wigs are inherently realistic looking, the dense factor is not that critical in expressing realism.

    Since individual hairs are hand sewed on to full lace wigs, and the hair is real, it is understandable that the price of the wigs would be high. People who really care about their hair should make the investment in to full lace wigs, but those who are not too mindful of it should not have a problem with a regular wig. Full lace wigs run between three hundred and five hundred dollars, although if a wig is extremely high quality and made with in-demand hair, the price can reach into the thousands.
