There are many various types of wigs available on the market. Women wear wigs for many different reasons for instance, to cover thinning hair in certain spots to total hair loss due to medical conditions. Choosing the right one can be overwhelming at such times. Another reason many women wear wigs is to achieve hairstyles that are impossible to do with their own hair.
the lace front wig is one type of wig. This wig has individual hairs that are hand stitched into a lace material that are found only at the front part of the wig. By hand stitching the hairs into the lace front it gives the impression that the hairs are growing straight from the scalp. Once you have the wig secured into place, the lace material is trimmed off at the hairline without cutting any of the knots. The lace can then be glued into place and depending on what type of adhesive is used, can last from days to weeks. After gluing the lace down, cosmetics can be applied to conceal the lace. You won’t be able to identify where the wig line begins and this way you will have a natural looking hairpiece. This is the very reason why it is the best type of wig you can find.
The lace material used is either French or Swiss. The French lace is durable but delicate. The Swiss lace is more delicate and can tear easily and because of this it’s more suited for advance lace wig users.
These wigs are made from synthetic fibers or from real human hair. The lace wigs made of real hair wigs will always be more expensive since they are in short supply but, they are more durable and flexible when it come to styling different ways. You can also use heat styling tools with these wigs without being concerned of causing any damage. Regular hair care products can be used on these real hair wigs and when proper care is taken they can last well over a year.
When it comes to synthetic lace front wigs they are not as durable as real lace fronts but, these wigs are low maintenance and more affordable. They come ready to wear and don’t require styling. Avoid any heat to these types of wigs as this can destroy your wig. You will need special hair care products for these kinds of wigs. A properly taken care of synthetic front lace wig will last up to six months.
Lace wigs are the better type of wig to go with if looking for a natural looking wig. The lace front will make your wig undetectable and nobody will know you’re wearing anything.
