Lace Wig Questions and Answers
Frequently Asked Questions Guide
General Lace Wig Questions
Lace front wigs represent the latest technology for non-surgical hair replacement in the world today. A lace front wig when designed and constructed properly will be the closest thing to your own real hair, or can replace the hair you never had. It is the most natural, most beautiful, hair replacement system imaginable today. It is made out of real human hair and hand tied into a very sheer lace base - one single hair at a time. It should look so natural that it can be virtually undetectable to anyone, even at a distance of only a few inches away. You can wear it for weeks at a time without removing it. You can comb your hair straight back, part it in the middle or even go swimming with it.
There are no limitations to your look or lifestyle. You can shower, sleep, perm, wash or do anything you would normally do. You can finally have the hair you always dreamed of!
A lace front wig is constructed with french lace in the front and a regular wig cap in the back. The lace front has a very natural looking hairline since each hair is added strand by strand into the lace creating the illusion that hair is growing out of the scalp. The back of the wig is made with hair wefts sewn into the cap. A full lace system is the ultimate system since it will look natural from every angle regardless of how the hair is brushed or styled. A full lace system is made entirely of lace with each hair hand tied into the lace one single hair at a time. There are no hair wefts used. The object of a lace front wig or a full lace wig is to look beautiful and natural! You do not want anyone to ever think you are wearing a wig. A full lace system is usually preferred and is the ultimate in style, design, beauty and naturalness.

Hair Texture and Color Questions
Remy hair, also called virgin, cuticle or cut hair; is the highest quality human hair you can find on the market. WE ONLY MANUFACTURE OUR LACE WIGS WITH THE BEST REMY HAIR AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. The hair is in the most natural state, free from chemical processing of any kind.
Remy hair is special because each bundle comes directly from a single donors head. This allows each bundle to keep the consistency of texture, color, and length. It is then cleaned and sorted to be packaged. The cuticles of the hair are intact and facing in the same direction. This eliminates the worrisome pain of tangles and matting. This is what makes Remy hair a step above the rest!
We can duplicate any picture that you send to us! - You can do this by simply placing a custom lace front wig order and within the "order form" there is a option where you will be able to insert your own picture! You can specify whether you want the similar color of the photo, similar texture, or even style! We can recreate any look or style you want!
Can I Style This Hair With Curling Irons, Roller Sets, Beauty Products and More?
Remy hair can be dyed, permed, styled, set and blown dry to suit the individual.It is the softest and most natural hair available to buy.It looks and feels like actual hair, because it is! This hair is not something you see at the beauty supply store because of the quality and price. Most people pay between $900 - $3500 for the samewig because of the quality hair and skilled craftsmanship involved.
Yes! This hair is 100% human hair and reacts to styling with natural water just like your own natural hair. The remy hair straight/curly/wavy textures curl up when wet, but can easily be flat ironed for a straight look.
Lace Cap Questions
While there are many types of lace that can be used for the base, we prefer French lace. French lace is more durable than Swiss lace and is the best choice for new lace wig wearers. The French lace tends to last longer and is virtually tear resistant during the application process which is important when using strong glues and bonds. The French Lace is thin, delicate and natural looking.
The Swiss Lace is more undetectable but the main concern is that the lace breaks down faster and can rip much easier. If the lace rips or tears this will make your lace wig system unusable. The Swiss lace is the most undetectable of the laces, but the most fragile. The Swiss lace cap choice is best for experienced lace wig users that don't care about the longevity of the wig.
Overall, both French and Swiss lace look extremely natural as the lace seems to disappear into your scalp when applied with our special surgical bonds and lace tape.Your unit will come with extra lace extending from the hairline, which you willtrim off to custom fit your hairline and then bond with your choice of adhesive.
Application and Attachment Questions
A lace wig can last for many months or even years depending on your usage, lifestyle, maintenance and upkeep. The types of glues that are used during the application method also effects the life span of your unit. For example, the lace wig can be compared to the tires on a car; of course the more you drive your car, the more worn down the tires become and the need for replacement tires becomes greater. The idea remains that if you plan to wear your wig more often, the natural need for a new unit will become greater as the hair naturally degrades due to extended periods of use, friction, and pollutants.
Yes. You will have to make your own hair as flat as possible, by wrapping or braiding it. Then apply a flesh toned stocking cap over your natural hair to simulate your scalp color.
Absolutely! I highly recommend this system for anyone with any kind of hair loss or those undergoing Chemotherapy. If you suffer from a medical condition where you have experienced severe hair loss, it's recommended you proceed with a full french or full swiss lace wig. This will ensure the most comfortable "perfect" fit.
Yes. You can do all your daily activities with this wig on. Only avoid swimming, or sweating for 24 hours after applying adhesives and tapes. If you use the Safe Grip Copolymer bond, you only have to wait until it is dry. Other than that, no one will ever know it's not your own natural hair! Also make sure you use a waterproof adhesive. Not all adhesives and glues are waterproof. The combination of the Scalp Protector and Safe Grip Copolymer bond will ensure the strongest and best water resistant application available.
There are three main ways to attach the lace wig system. That is with special glues, tape, or a combination of the two methods.
We carry all the medical grade adhesive glues that will not irritate the skin and provide a long lasting hold. We break our glues into three separate base types; that being silicon, acrylic and copolymer. Each has different bonding properties but all are well tested and have been used for years for the proper application of lace wigs.
Using Beginner Glues
The Mity Tite by Walker Tape is a medical grade acrylic glue that can be used for an application duration of 1-10 days. The application duration depends mainly on how much glue is applied and if the combination of lace tape is involved. The Mity Tite is the most popular glue that is used by beginners during the application process.
Using Expert Glues
The Safe Hold by Lace Therapy is a copolymer medical adhesive and is the latest development in applying lace to the scalp. This glue can provide a bond of 1-6 weeks. The Safe Hold adhesive does not break down by your body oils, sweat, or perspiration. It is very flexible and dries completely transparent, making sure that no one sees the bond or the lace on your scalp. The Safe Hold has become the most popular bond with the experienced users.
Using Tape Adhesives
The type of Lace Wig Tape used for wig application is a special clear, two-sided lace tape adhesive. The lace tape is available in a pack of 30 pieces and is applied directly on your scalp or wig cap by simply attaching the lace onto the tape. The double sided tape is clear and holds the lace very well. The duration of lace tape can last 1-3 days.
Please note: To ensure the best possible hold for your lace wig system, you should use the tape together with the bond. The combination of Mity Tite and Lace Tape is preferred by new lace wig users.
