Now, let’s go on!

Part I Prepare the Wig

1.Take a skin test.

Some people are allergic to the chemicals used to fix wigs. Do a skin test to determine if you are allergic. First, apply a small amount of liquid adhesive or double-sided wig tape on the back of your hand. Next, observe the adhesive for at least 24 hours. If the skin becomes red or inflamed, buy a hypoallergenic wig or adhesive instead. If the skin is not affected, you can safely wear a wig.

2. Smooth the hair.

The flatter your hair is on your head, the better the wig will look. You can braid short hair in rows, or use hairspray and hairpins on your head. For long hair, tie the hair into a low ponytail first. Next, tie the ponytail into a flat bun and secure it with a hair clip.
Let any gel or hairspray dry out before continuing.
Expert tip: If you have a lot of hair, tie it into two French braids and wrap them tightly around your head.

3. Put on a cap with stockings.

A stocking cap, or wig cap, is a soft cap that flattens your hair and helps the wig stay in place. Gently pull on the stocking cap, being careful not to disturb your flat hair. Adjust the hat so that it almost covers your hairline
If you have almost no hair, skip this step. Otherwise, the hat will slide on your head and tie into a ball under your wig.
Be sure to tuck all your hair into this hat, even the hair on the back of your neck.

4. Prepare your skin.

Wash the skin with a mild detergent and dry it with a towel. Next, dip some alcohol on a cotton ball and wipe it along the hairline. This will remove excess oil from the skin. If you have sensitive skin, you can use scalp protection serum after using alcohol.
Let the serum dry completely before continuing.Scalp protection serum can be purchased at wig supply stores and online.

Part 2 put on a wig

1. Test whether the wig fits.

Before you apply any adhesive, you need to make sure the wig is suitable. To do this, place the fake on your head and align it with your natural hairline. If there are elastic bands on the inside of the wig, you may need to adjust these elastic bands to get the proper fit. If the wig is not suitable and does not have any straps, please contact the manufacturer for help. If you can feel strong pressure around your scalp, the wig is too tight. Loosen the belt slightly. If the wig slips off when you move your head, it means the wig is too loose. Tighten the strap.

2. Trim the lace.

Once your wig fits, you need to trim the lace. Use a few clips to pull the hair off the face. Next, use small sharp scissors to trim the lace along your natural hairline. You should leave 1/8 inch (3 mm) lace. This only requires you to wear a wig for the first time. Some wigs do not need to be trimmed before wearing. There is almost no extra lace on the front of these wigs. You can buy small scissors at a sewing supply store.

3. Remove the wig and set it aside.

Carefully remove the wig, keep all the clips, and place the wig on a clean surface. Arrange the wig so that you can easily see which part of the starting line and which part of the nape is.If you have to loosen the belt to remove the wig, your wig is too tight.

4. Apply wig tape.

Cut six to ten small wig bands. Next, use a small piece of tape to close the hairline to the skin. When you do this, use a mirror to create an even hairline. Once the tape is applied, remove the thick foam pad to expose the other side of the tape. Make sure all the debris is in contact. Otherwise, there may be gaps in your hairline. Wig bands can be purchased at wig supply stores or online.

5.Use liquid adhesive.

If you don’t want to use wig tape, you can use liquid lace adhesive instead. Use a clean makeup brush to spread the adhesive into thin lines along your entire hairline. Depending on the type of adhesive, you may need to wait a few minutes before putting on the wig. If you are using soft adhesive glue, let the glue dry long enough before applying the wig to become sticky. If you use hard adhesive, you can apply the wig immediately.

6. Put on a wig.

Wear the wig carefully. First, adjust the edge of the wig to match the hairline. Next, adjust the back of the wig so that it hangs naturally on your hair. Finally, press the lace of the wig into the adhesive or wig tape. Once you press the lace into the adhesive or wig band, it is difficult to remove. Before doing this, make sure the wig is perfectly aligned.

7. Organize your hair.

If your wig is made of human hair, you can use ordinary brushes, thermal styling tools, and hair products. If your wig is synthetic, avoid using regular brushes and thermal styling tools. Instead, use a wide tooth comb or wig brush to adjust your hair.

Part Three Maintaining Your Wig

1. Take off your wig.

First, use a commercial wig adhesive remover or ordinary baby oil to remove all adhesive or tape. To do this, wipe off the makeup remover along your hairline where the lace is in contact with the adhesive. Continue to rub gently until the lace comes off the scalp. Don’t tear off the lace, otherwise it will damage the wig.

2. Wash the wig regularly.

According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, your wig needs to be washed after 8-12 wears. First, brush off any tangles on the wig. Next, wash your hair and wash the fakes in a sink filled with warm water. Put it on the wig holder and let it dry completely before brushing or combing. This will help the wig last for months instead of weeks.Human hair can be washed with regular shampoo and conditioner. However, synthetic wigs require their own professional shampoo and conditioner.
Professional shampoos and conditioners can be purchased at beauty supply stores or directly from wig manufacturers.

3. Give out the fakes.

Proper storage will extend the life of the wig. Put the wig on the wig holder when it is not in use. If you are between washings, make sure that the wig is free of any adhesive or tape before storing. You can buy a wig holder at a wig supply store or online.

At last, do you get to wear a lace wig?
