Keep Lace Front Wig and Full Lace Wig Down

Keep Lace Front Wig and Full Lace Wig Down

Jun 7, 2019

Lace wigs allow you to experiment with a different hairstyle while making sure that your lace wig is being kept in place. A lace front wig can stay attached for up to 6 weeks when properly sealed. Learning how to maintain the seal on a lace front wig and full lace wigs can extend the life of your hairstyle and help you avoid embarrassing hair fly away situations sometimes.

Keep the application area clean and dry. Failure to properly clean the application site before applying a lace front wig can result in a faulty seal that can easily be separated. Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, and use it to wipe away any oil and particles at the application area prior to attaching the lace front wig. Avoid using heavy oil-based sheens on the application area to prevent loosening the adhesive bond result.

Apply a tight seal with hair glue. Use short wide strokes to apply an adequate amount of glue from the edge of the application area into your hairline. Use your pointer finger to assess the glue by gently touching the area where you first began gluing. The glue should stretch easily and appear stringy when ready. This process may take up 10 minutes, and it is vital to keeping the lace wig down. Start at the mid-forehead and begin pressing the wig down until the entire application area is covered. When applied correctly, lace wigs can be attached with glue for up to 5 weeks or more.
Secure the lace front wig or full lace wig with double-sided tape if you would rather use tape instead of hair glue. Peel away the protective backing of one side of the tape and attach the exposed adhesive along your prepped hairline. Place the lace front wig along the tapeline and ensure it's in the correct fitted position. Begin peeling the backing off the second side of the tape and press the lace front wig in place until the front of the wig is completely applied. Double sided tape can hold lace front wigs and full lace wigs down for up to 6 weeks when properly applied. Bonding tape offers increased protection against scalp sweating problems.

Assess the bonding area regularly. Since factors such as physical activity and hairstyling stress affect the adhesive bond of a lace front wig or a full lace wig, it's important to stop minor problems before the lace wig comes completely out of place. Use a mirror to look for weakened points along the adhesive area. Correct weak spots by applying additional glue or tape after cleansing the area. When several weak spots are found, it's time to remove the lace front wig or full lace wig, and you can prepare a new application then.

Protect the adhesive bond. Extend the life of your lace front wig and full lace wig application by taking precautions against undue stress along the adhesive site. Wear hats and scarves during windy weather to keep the lace wig down. Wrap your virgin hair up at night to prevent excessive rubbing and sweating at the site. Avoid pulling the lace wig into tight ponytails.
How to Style Hair Extensions for Natural Curly Hair

How to Style Hair Extensions for Natural Curly Hair

If you're blessed with naturally curly hair you'll know that styling those tresses can be a little more tricky for you than for those of us with straight hair. Here at Milk + Blush we're all about celebrating your individuality and when it comes to your hair we want you to express yourself! Stylists have used M+B Hair Extensions to style celebs such as Winnie Harlow and Solange Knowles and made them work for their amazing natural hair texture. So, along with help from our resident Milk + Blush curl queen, today we're sharing with you some of our tips and tricks for styling hair extensions for naturally curly hair.

Suss out your shade

You may find that you have more than one tone running through those curly locks which can make blending extensions that bit more difficult. While you can opt from our range of highlighted shades, you can also get a really natural, multi-tonal effect by using a combination of two or more Milk + Blush shades. Our curly haired Milk + Blush Babe wears a combination of the shades ‘Love This Feeling' and ‘Sweet Like Chocolate' as her hair is quite dark but has slightly lighter, sunkissed tones running through it and this creates a super natural, blended look for her. You can go for two sets in two different shades or simply opt to add in a few Single Wefts or a Quad Weft in a different shade to your full set for some extra tones. Finding your ideal shade of Milk + Blush Hair Extensions is sooo simple, click here to find out more.
Know your curl pattern

As a curl connoisseur, you'll know that no one curl is the same so it can be tricky to style your hair extensions to match. The best way to blend your extensions is to look at the formation of your natural curls. Are they uniform? Corkscrew like? Going in different directions? You can mimic your naturals curls with your Milk + Blush hair extensions in so many ways - try using a chopstick curler, braiding your wefts and leaving them overnight or using a 1 inch wand and curling the hair alternate ways. To style hair we curled the wefts separately using a chopstick curler and curled the hair in alternate directions before clipping them in.

A great tip for curling your M+B hair is to clip the wefts in a hanger or place the top of the weft inside a strong drawer and close it leaving the hair free to curl, this way you get ultimate control when styling.

Recreate the texture

The beauty of natural curls is that they're often messy and wild looking - no uniformity here thank you! So you want to recreate that same texture in your Milk + Blush hair extensions otherwise things can look a little odd! If your virgin hair is super big try gently backcombing your styled wefts and breaking up the curls. If your curls are more structured use a serum or hairspray to help keep their shape. Once the curled wefts were clipped into hair we used a little smoothing balm on our fingertips to break the curls up and incorporate them into her own hair. The balm allowed us to break up the curls and make them big and textured without going frizzy - super easy.
