  • Full Lace Wigs - Tips and Tricks

    Marie Hines asked:


    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.

    Marie Hines asked:


    The Liquid Adhesive Method:

    Apply liquid adhesive to your scalp, in front of your natural hairline, using either your finger, which may provide the best control and coverage for some wearer, or a flat cosmetic stick.

    Do not use Q-tips as the fibers will bond to the adhesive.

    Follow the manufacturer\’s instructions regarding cure times.

    Optional: Put a wig cap on to better protect your own hair.

    Begin by lightly applying the liquid adhesive, around the perimeter of your hairline.

    When applying the liquid adhesive to the nape area, drop your chin to your chest, so that when wearing your full lace wig, when you look down, it won\’t lift or tug your skin.

    Allow the liquid adhesive to dry completely, until it is clear in appearance and tacky to the touch.

    Then pull the hair of the full lace wig into a firm knot at the crown while the hair unit is on a wig head.

    Sprits with water to tame flyways.

    Place the lace edge of the full lace wig, on the skin of your forehead,along your natural hairline, press firmly and use a fine teeth comb to push back the baby hair .

    Continue to adjust the lace of the full lace wig around the whole perimeter of your hairline working from the forehead to the sides of your head down to the nape area.

    Note:When applying the lace of the full lace wig to the nape area, drop your chin to your chest, when you reach the nape area,then press the lace firmly .

    Avoid touching the forehead hairline area once the adhesive has set and the lace has been applied.

    Secure with a snug headband or wrap to completely set the bonding process.

    Avoid heavy perspiration ,as well as water on the full lace wig for 24-48hrs.

    The Tape Method:

    Cut the full lace wig, pre-bond double sided tape to fit your hairline.

    Most tapes are precut for convenience.

    Optional: Put a wig cap on to better protect your own hair.

    Place the pre-bond double sided tape strips in front of your natural hairline around the whole perimeter of your head.

    Then apply the lace of the full lace wig, with a little pressure onto the strips starting from the front of your forehead and working your way to one side of your head, then the other side of your head. Again, remember when you reach the nape area, drop your chin to your chest, so that when wearing your full lace, if/when you look down, it won\’t lift or tug your skin.

    Wrap the circumference of your head with a scarf or snug headband to completely set the bonding process. Avoid heavy perspiration as well as water on the full lace wig for 24-48hrs.

    The Combination of Both above mentionned Methods:

    Apply liquid adhesive to your scalp in front of your natural hairline using either your finger, which may provide the best control and coverage for some wearer, or a flat cosmetic stick.

    Allow the liquid adhesive to dry completely until it is clear in appearance and tacky to the touch.

    Cut the full lace wig, pre-bond double sided tape to fit your hairline.

    Optional: Put a wig cap on to better protect your own hair.

    Place the pre-bond double sided tape strips in front of your natural hairline around the whole perimeter of your head.

    Then apply the lace of the full lace wig, with a little pressure onto the strips starting from the front of your forehead and working your way to one side of your head, then the other side of your head. Again, remember when you reach the nape area, drop your chin to your chest, so that when wearing your full lace, if/when you look down, it won\’t lift or tug your skin.

    Wrap the circumference of your head with a scarf or snug headband to completely set the bonding process. Avoid heavy perspiration as well as water on the full lace wig for 24-48hrs.

  • Full lace wig introduction

    Posted on October 2nd, 2009 admin 1 comment
    full lace wig asked:


    Our expert team includes both designers and top stylists who together create intricate pieces to suit your needs. The new Lace Wig technique is so advanced that everyone will assume your hair to be your own, and will not believe for one minute that it’s a wig.this is so ture,and so many people are ordering from China,and we believe it will become more and more popular !

    We pride ourselves on providing top quality 100% Remy Human Hair from a variety of Indian, Chinese, Brazilian and Indonesian sources. Each wig is created from hair donated by only one individual to ensure that the creation is a refined blend of premium hair displaying the same quality and texture throughout.

    Usually on the order from,there are many things people dont understand its meaning.then i will explain to you here/

    What is a Lace Wig?

    This amazing new concept has been a well kept secret in Hollywood for the past couple of years.  Celebrities, such as Tyra Banks and Beyonce are all huge fans of the Lace Wig.

    As well as the obvious glitz and glamour association, Lace Wigs have also restored confidence to people suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions such as alopecia or chemotherapy.

    A Lace Wig is intricately built on an extremely sheer lace cap, by hand tying individual strands of hair to the lace. This unique technique allows for a totally natural hairline to be created, one that is virtually invisible to the eye. This also applies to when the hair of the wig is parted, with the hair appearing to “grow” from the scalp so that the wig can be worn in a variety of styles: high ponytail, braided, curled. 

    and the lace are totally imported from swiss and france.we have many custmomers in China too.they are people who are playing movies and some are stars.they use full lace wigs when this actor needs a wig or something like that.

    What is the difference between a lace front wig and a regular wig?

    A full Lace Wig is an intricately designed cap created entirely from lace. Each strand of hair is individually hand tied to the lace giving the realistic appearance of a scalp. Our Lace Wigs are produced with bleached knots to blend in with the colour of the lace.  When deciding upon your Lace Wig, you would choose a similar colour to your own scalp to ensure a realistic look. You would then be able to part the hair in any direction or wear it in a high ponytail without the worry of exposed tracks.

    The wigs are also made from very light lace, which allows the air to flow inside and out of the cap, to combat the dreaded itching that usually occurs with a non Lace wig!

    There is a kind of lace front wig too,its just have lace front and the rest are machine made.

     

    What are the different types of lace available?

    French lace creates a strong wig construction, which is slightly more detectable than Swiss however more robust. French cap construction is ideal for first time wearers as it is more durable and virtually undetectable.

    Swiss lace is a finer less detectable lace. The lace is fragile and more suitable for experienced users.

    What is the difference between Indian & Chinese Remy Hair?

    The word “Remy” defines the process by which cuticles of the hair from the person donating it are kept intact and aligned together when the wig is knotted into the cap.

    The Indian Remy Hair is strong and flexible; it can withstand the various processes, is naturally thick and maintains its natural volume; it is donated from people in that geography.

    The Brazilian Remy Hair is very strong and of a coarser texture. It is more akin to African/Afro American Hair Texture and is donated from people in that geography.

    The Chinese Remy hair is of a finer texture and is more delicate. Again, it is donated from people in that geography.

    Hair textures

    ·        Silky Straight:   a silky texture with a slight wave.

    ·        Yaki Straight:     resembles ‘relaxed’ afro hair.

    ·        Kinky Soft:         resembles blow dried afro hair texture.

    ·        Jheri Curl:          for natural afro hair texture.

    ·        Deep Wave:       large volume curls.

    ·        Body Wave:       loose curls.

    ·        Water Wave:     medium wavy curl.

    How do I choose a wig density?

    The “Wig Density” refers to the volume of hair that is tied to the base cap.

    At Lace Wig Elegance, we aim to provide the density that you require. The medium density gives the most realistic appearance and as such all our “In stock” Lace Wigs are of this most popular density.  We also offer Light Density, and Heavy Density.

    How do I apply my lace wig?

    Lace wigs are attached by using adhesives which come in the form of liquid or tape (or you could use both). The method you use will depend entirely on personal preference. Our Research team keeps up to date with all the latest technological developments and the most reliable adhesives being produced. Please visit our DIY installation guide online for more detailed information.

    We also offer a professional installation service at an additional cost. If you would like to utilise this service, them please let us know your postcode and we will ask your local Lace Wig Elegance stylist to contact you.

     

    Can I dye, perm or blow dry my wig?

    Our wigs can be treated in much the same way as your own hair. They can therefore be permed, coloured or heat treated. However, great care should be taken in treating your wig to reduce the likelihood of damage. 

    What are Knots?

    Lace Wig Elegance produces wigs that are 100% hand tied and knotted. The hair is knotted into the lace securely with each strand of hair tightly hand tied with either a single knot or a double knot. The knots are bleached to give the appearance that hair is actually growing from the scalp.

    What is Baby hair?

    We use baby hair knotted into the lace on the periphery of the wig to make it look far more natural and undetectable. This is especially effective when you lift your hair in a high ponytail or swept back style. You can also part your hair anywhere and the join of wig and head will not be easily visible.

    Will adhesives affect my hairline?

    When applied properly, the adhesive should not be placed on the hair so this should reduce the risk of any damage. You can also wear a wig cap under the wig to avoid any adhesive touching the hairline.

    Adhesives will break down over time and we recommend that adhesives are removed and reapplied on a regular basis. When removing your wig, please allow sufficient time to undertake this process, allowing the lace release to separate the wig from your hairline. Do not be tempted to remove it in a hurry as this will damage both the wig and your hairline!

    How long can I wear the wig before I have to remove it?

    This depends on many factors; skin type, adhesive strength, climate, etc. Some customers are able to wear their wigs for 1-4 weeks at a time. However, due to easy application and removal, most customers are finding it preferable to remove their wigs on a weekly basis to care for their own hair, cleanse the lace and reapply. Although it is possible, daily removal of your wig is not recommended, as this will place additional stress on the lace and shorten the lifespan of your wig.

  • Full Cranial Prosthesis aka Full Lace Wigs: A solution to Alopecia

    Posted on October 1st, 2009 admin No comments
    Marie Hines asked:


    Full Cranial Prosthesis aka Full Lace wigs are the latest development in hair replacement units, and are designed to meet the specific needs of any women suffering from long term, or permanent hair loss to medical conditions.

    Androgenic alopecia and traumatic alopecia are one of the most common medical cause of hair loss in women.

    - Androgenic alopecia is an hereditary hair thinning, and occurs in both men and women.

    However, it is the most common form of alopecia in women.

    It can begin as early as in the 20s.

    By age 40, 40% of these women have noticeable hair thinning due to this condition.

    By age 50, 60% of them have severe signs of hair loss.

    When this type of hair loss occurs, women usually do not develop true baldness in the patterns that occur in men, as the areas affected are in the temples and the crown of the head, while the front hairline is usually preserved.

    - Traumatic alopecia is a form of hair loss due to scarring of the scalp area. This form of hair loss frequently occurs in African-American women.

    Traumatic alopecia is divided into three categories: traction, chemical and follicular alopecia.

    Traction alopecia:

    Hair loss associated with persistent use of tight braids, hair rollers, weaves, twist, locks, or cornrows. The first sign of traction alopecia is thinning above the ears and the forehead.

    This hair loss is often seen in young girls.

    Partial or complete regrowth of hair can follow, but permanent loss of hair can occur when

    the roots of the hairs are severely damaged.

    Chemical alopecia:

    Damage to the scalp and hair shaft caused by commercial chemical products, like relaxers.

    It resemble hair thinning resulting from hereditary causes, but also include scarring of the scalp, which can irreversibly damage the hair follicles.

    Follicular alopecia:

    Gradual destruction of hair follicles by the excessive use of pomades with a hot comb or iron.

    Thinning usually begins at the crown and then spreads evenly throughout the head. It is an irreversible

    condition.

    Full Cranial Prosthesis aka Full Lace Wigs are an excellent solution to restore self confidence in women suffering rom any type of Alopecia, as they are designed and constructed to be the closest thing to one own real hair.

    It is the most beautiful, natural hair replacement system imaginable.

    They are virtually undetectable because they are constructed with a gauze-like lace material which makes it comfortable for extended wear.

    The hairline is secured with skin liquid adhesive or/and tape.

    When the lace is bonded to one own hairline, it creates an invisible hairline, making it look as though the hair is growing out of one own scalp.

    The hair of those unit are usually made of a 100% human hair, tied one strand at a time into that lace base.

    The gauze-like lace fabric used for the cap construction of that hair system is very sheer, so that it takes on, the approximate color of the wearer own natural scalp, provides proper ventilation while worn, and eliminates heat and moisture build-up.

    Full Cranial Prosthesis aka Full Lace Wigs, are lightweight, ultra comfortable and undetectable!

    They look so natural, that even from a few inches away, it seems that the hair is growing out of one own scalp.

    This new and revolutionary hair replacement system can be worn for days or even weeks at a time.

    the hair can be colored, permed, washed, blown-dry, curled with a curling iron and style any way one like.

    They are so versatile,that they can be parted anywhere on the head, worn in a high ponytail, braided in cornrows, worn in an up do or any style chosen.

  • How To Apply Lace Front Wigs

    Posted on July 28th, 2009 admin No comments

    There are a couple of ways by which you can apply your lace front wigs; one is with the help of liquid adhesives and the other is by making use of double-sided tape. Most retailers sell you the lace wigs along with the adhesive so you should not have any problem selecting one that will work properly with your wig. If no adhesive comes along with the lace wigs, then you will need to select whichever adhesive type is best suitable for your needs.

    If you are using liquid adhesive, you should first position the lace front wig on your head. Make sure you pin back the hair on the wig so that they don’t get glued on to your forehead. Try a mesh cap to hold all your hair in place. Smear very little adhesive on a little portion of the lace front. Also, make sure that your natural hair is out of the way. You may choose to cut of the small hair or keep it out of the lace wig depending on the kind of look you want. Apply pressure to the lace front wig where you put the adhesive. If you are using a good adhesive, it should take as few as five seconds to hold it down. Once that portion of the lace wig is firmly in position, go on to the next section. To make it easier to apply, put adhesive on an inch of hair every time till you have put adhesive on the wig from one edge to another.

    In case of double-sided tape for lace front wigs, cut the tape into strips that measure about three inches. The tape is normally about 3.8 inches broad. Lay the first strip on an area where the lace front attaches to it. The tape should be attached on the front hairline at the border of the lace. Similarly, place the other strips of tape at the border of the lace till you have finished laying down all the tapes on the full front side of the wig from one edge to the other. There should be no spaces left between the tapes. This should ensure that the lace wigs are kept in place and also produce a hairline that looks very natural.

    Full Lace Wigs Care & Maintenence

    How to Wash a Full Lace Wig


    It is extremely important to familiarize yourself with the texture of your full lace wig. Use products that work well with your unit’s texture! Products you use on your own hair type may not work well on your full lace wig.

    Step 1

    Before washing your full lace wig, brush gently, or use a detangling comb from the tips of the wig to the base/roots. Never begin combing at the top or middle, this will damage and tangle the unit.

    Step 2

    Place your full lace wig on a Styrofoam wig head and use T Pins to secure.

    Step 3

    In a spray bottle, mix a capful of shampoo and fill the remaining with cool water. It is important to choose a shampoo that is suitable for your full lace wig’s texture. Products that may work well are Silicon Mix, Nearly Natural, Ionix, Dove Moisture Intense, Nexxus, Aveda, Paul Mitchell etc

    Step 4

    Place your full lace wig on the Styrofoam head under a gentle stream of cool water. Pour or spray the shampoo mixture evenly over the wig and use a wide tooth rounded end comb to distribute the shampoo. Remember to always comb starting at the ends of the hair to the roots.

    Step 5

    Rinse the unit thoroughly on the wig head using a gentle stream of cool water.

    Step 6

    In a spray bottle, mix a capful of conditioner and fill the remaining with cool water. It is important to choose a conditioner that is suitable for your full lace wig’s texture. Products that may work well are Silicon Mix, Nearly Natural, Ionix, Mane N Tail, Dove Moisture Intense, Nexxus, Aveda, Paul Mitchell etc

    Step 7

    Place your full lace wig on the Styrofoam head under a gentle stream of cool water. Pour or spray the conditioner mixture evenly over the wig and use a wide tooth rounded end comb to distribute the conditioner. Remember to always comb starting at the ends of the hair to the roots.

    Step 8

    Rinse your full lace unit thoroughly on the wig head using a gentle stream of cool water.

    Step 9

    Towel blot your full lace wig gently in a patting motion, while still on your wig head.Spray on leave in conditioner if desired and allow to air dry. This is a great time to part or apply foam/setting lotion.

    Step 10

    To minimize shedding, apply knot sealer. Once your unit is dry, simply Invert lace base to expose knots. use a plastic cap to protect the hair. Shake sealer contents well, hold bottle upright and aim at lace-base. Spritz on Knot Sealer using mist pump being careful not to allow excess sealer to penetrate into hair. Blow dry. Repeat as needed. (WE RECOMMENDED TWO COATS) Creates a long-lasting invisible seal that is permanently flexible!

  • The Lace Wig Adhesive Kit – All You Could Possibly Need

    Posted on February 11th, 2009 admin No comments
    Deborah Rayner asked:


    There are two basic methods for attaching your lace wig and they are with tape and with glue. Which method that you end up preferring can depend on a number of variables, including whether or not your skin is sensitive to either glue or tape. Both glue and tape methods also require other items that are used in conjunction with the glue and the tape, so you will need more then simply the glue and the tape.

    Small Medium and Large Wig Adhesive Kits

    The lace wig adhesive kit is one option to take that may be the perfect solution to your problems. There are a few different levels of kits starting with the smaller kit that fulfills you basic needs. The larger deluxe lace wig kits, on the other hand, will have everything that you need and is your personal guarantee that you will never be caught without something that you absolutely need to properly attach or maintain your wig.

    Everything that You Need

    It is important to remember that there is more to properly attaching your wig with glue then just pouring glue on it and sticking it on your head. For instance, scalp protector pre adhesive is used to insure that your scalp itself doesn’t become irritated with constant use. Also, you will need conditioner to treat the hair on the wig, or it will eventually begin to show signs of degradation.

    Both Types of Adhesives

    All of the lace wig adhesive kits that are available on line now come with handy carrying cases that make it so easy to keep everything that you need for your wig in one place and ready to go. Also, the complete wig adhesive kits contain both water and solvent soluble types of adhesives, so you gave your choice of either one, depending  on your particular circumstances.



  • An Overview of Full Lace Wigs

    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.
