  • 2. -1- Instruction: History of wigs can be considered to be started from Egyptians, they shaved their heads, both males and females, and so they used to wear wigs to save their heads from the blistering heat of the sun. Now some of Wigs are made from synthetic fibers while others are constructed with human hair. human hair Wigs can be styles just like natural hair. Women always consider their hair as an attractive part of their body, if it doesn't look as good as it used to, they may feel bad about how they look, and lack confidence, so they wear wigs primarily for two reasons, losing hair (due to some sort of hormonal/chemical/health issues) or due to the fact that wigs can make them feel and look different than the rest (biggest reason). For example, they can change hairstyles frequently for a theme party or other special event by wearing wigs; they can dress up as their favorite TV and movie characters, and not mess with their original hair. As we know some popular stars wear wigs, too, such as Beyonce, Tyra Banks. And what they wear is the best wigs- lace wigs that looks very natural and realistic. And yet are within the budget of most women To select a wig that would be indistinguishable from real human hair and become your favorite fashion accessory, you need to know a few insider tips: (1)Which is best - synthetic or human hair wigs? Advantages of real human hair: Real human hair wig is soft to the touch Wig from human hair looks natural It can be styled or colored to your taste With good care human wig lasts longer than a synthetic one Disadvantages of real human hair: Care is more difficult and you have to style your wig every time after you wash it.And wigs from real human hair are more expensive than synthetic wigs. -1-
  • 3. -2- If you are after the most natural look and are planning to wear your wig every day, human hair wig would be the best choice for you. There is no reason to become worried that your human hair wigs will not turn out the way you imagined—with all of the options before you—you are certain to find something you will be pleased with for a long, long time For human hair wigs are expensive, so it is important to know some tips when choosing wigs and merchant. Suggestion of how to choose human hair lace wigs and merchant: 1.Tips to choose lace wigs: (1).baby hair, along the perimeter to give the effect of a naturally growing hairline (2).ponytail and updo (3).

  • 4. -3- 2.Tips to choose the right merchant. (1).Most important factor is that the merchant has a free exchange and return policy, because lace wigs is expensive, and you don’t want to get stuck in a situation where you have a wig which is not the perfect one for you. (2). A great delivery service. It’s better that the service is UPS, FedEx because of reliability and speed issues.. (3).Should be able to repair the wigs, if they start to have some problems, As these rules I recommend Rpgshow, for it is not only offer these service but also with affordable price. http://www.rpgshow.com Email:wigs@rpgshow.com MON-SAT:EAST:7.30PM-4.30AM (2)What wigs styles are available, ¾ wigs or full wigs? A full wig covers your entire head. This type of wig is great when you want to try a color different from your own. A ¾ wig is clipped to the top of your head, your original hairline is visible, ¾ wigs have to match your hair color very closely, otherwise it won’t look convincing. and colors on the color charts are usually not very accurate. Instruction for Use Cutting excess lace 1. Clip all hair and baby hair away from edge of the wig. This will prevent the hair from getting stuck in the glue when applying the unit. Prep your hair, by creating a flat surface for the wig to sit on. You can braid your hair down, or apply a wig liner. 2. Fit the wig on your head, and evaluate how and where you would like the hairline, the goal is to find where the hairline will look most natural. 3. Cautiously cut the lace around the entire hairline. The goal here is to create your hairline, only cut small amounts off at a time. You may cut all the lace off or you can leave a little part of the lace if you feel more comfortable doing so. Make sure all baby hair is carefully pinned back so it is not cut. (*OPTIONAL*: When you have completed cutting the lace around the entire perimeter, you can spray fray Block on the edge of the lace to prevent it from fraying. 4. After you have created your hairline, apply adhesive to the hairline, so it can stay on your head. 5. The finished hairline should look totally natural, as if the hair were actually growing from your head. -3-
  • 5. -4- Attaching the wig .Preparing Skin and Hair for Application 1. Wash, condition and dry your hair. After your hair is dried, either braid hair in small cornrows, or tightly wrap your hair for a flat look. 2. Wash your face and shave off the miscellaneous fine fur around your entire hairline. Then use alcohol cotton balls to clean around your entire hairline and remove any oil that might be on your skin. 3. *Optional* Apply scalp protector or liquid band aid to prevent skin from adhesives. This will act as a barrier between your skin and the adhesive. (This step is very important for those who work out, swim or those with sensitive skin.) *Recommend* For those with hair, put on a flesh-toned wig cap, and line it up with your hairline, so it is completely covered. This will work as a protective layer for your hair, and will also create a scalp illusion under your hairline. (Make sure the wig cap is pulled over onto your hairline.) FYI: To prevent the wig cap from slipping, allow the glue and/or tape to overlap onto the nylon stocking cap or loosely stitch the cap in place. Application Routine 1. Start with a Q-Tip or a small make-up brush and apply a thin coat of the glue around the perimeter of your hairline. Use the liquid adhesives sparingly since drying time will be longer by using a lot of adhesives. Soft bond adhesives (I.e.: Vapon No-Tape, Ultra-Hold and Invisi-bond) must dry or get tacky. To save the drying time, use a hand-held air dryer on a cool/warm setting until dry or tacky. *Do NOT bond lace wig to wet adhensive, otherwise the wig will be set and stuck improperly. Hard bond adhesives (I.e.: Endurabond, Dermabond and Base bond) do NOT require any drying time, since they dry immediately after applied. 2. After your adhesive is ready for application, you must position the lace wig on your head. To make sure it is aligned properly, you must first bond the wig at the center of your front hairline. (The center point can be determined by parting the hair in the middle and -4-
  • 6. -5- aligning it with the center of your forehead or widows peak.) Then going from one side to the other, press the edge of the wig down into the adhesive using a fine tooth comb. *FYI* If you made an error when applying, use a Q-Tip with alcohol between the lace and your skin to release and reapply the wig. 3. Double check your hairline and touch-up any areas where the wig is not applied securely. If you need to remove any excess glue, use a Q-Tip and the corresponding solvent. 4. When you have completed the application process, tie down your hairline with a silk or satin scarf. This will allow the glue to set and dry properly. You may also sit under a dryer during this step to save time in the drying process. Removing 1. Pull all hair up into a ponytail to avoid getting any adhesive on the hair. 2.Apply the lace adhesive remover onto the adhesive around perimeter of hairline. 3. Gradually remove the lace. Be sure not to pull at the lace lustily. Moreover, it's always best to remove the unit from back to front, which will avoid stretching the front of the hair. 4. After you have removed the lace, there may be some residue from your skin left on the unit. You should shampoo the unit, and delicately scrub the residue away by a towel. 5. You should let the unit dry naturally or you can style the unit as how you would normally style your natural hair. -5-
  • 7. -6- Washing Washing your wig is not the same way as your natural hair. Rubbing shampoo into your wig as if it were naturally growing hair will cause the hair to tangle. The method we recommend below will prevent tangling, and can be performed either on a plastic head mold or when you're wearing your wig in the shower. 1. Start by taping the wig itself to the plastic mold, and then use the brush to comb out any tangles in the hair itself. 2. Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and water (try a 50%/50% mixture) and brush the hair from bottom up. 3. You must gradually wet the hair down and brush it gently before you completely wash the hair. If large amount of water flushes onto the dry hair directly, it may make the hair swell up like sponge and tangle! Therefore, it is important to wet the hair and brush it gradually. 4. After wetting the hair, add shampoo and conditioner and brush thoroughly. Be sure to wash and brush the hair in one direction. 5. Rinse the conditioner out of the hair with lukewarm water. Comb out any remaining shampoo with the brush. 6 .If you're wearing the wig, use a towel to blot (not rub out) the excess water. Comb and style the hair and let it sit to dry. If you want to use a hair dryer, make sure it's set on a cool/warm setting. You can check “Video Tutorials” on website.

The professional suggest the lace wig be washed at least one or two times one month by cold water. You shall wash the lace wig immediately after swimming, SPA, doing sports, and so on. The lace wig may be tangled in dirt conditions including sweating. Shampoo/Conditioning: Put several drops of olive oil to the brush before washing hair. Use the brush through the lace wig one by one section. Mix shampoo with water in a spray bottle (50% to 50%). Spray shampoo . Rinse the shampoo into lace wig from root to ends.

  • 8. -7- Silicon Mix Shampoo Pressing: It is suggested to press firmly at the attachment point. Press firmly around the line of lace wig Addition and dry it with towel. You shall press firmly it especially after grafting the lace wig Addition. Shedding: Here are some tips helpful on prevention of shedding hair overfull. It is all right for light shedding, but if the hair shedding on your full lace wig is more than our natural hair, this will be abnormal. Be sure NOT TO apply any products including alcohol onto the hair of your full lace wig, such as some kinds of hair spray, because these improper products will lead to damage the hair and hair shedding will be found easily. You may braid up the hair of your full lace wig or tie it in a ponytail before going to sleep so as to avoid any tangles. You’d better to use a scarf on your head or a hair bonnet when sleeping, which will reduce less breaking and shedding of the hair for your full lace wig. Remember that chlorine and salt water may cause damage to the hair of full lace wig, so you need to wear a swim cap during swimming or wash the full lace wig after swimming to avoid chlorine and salt water left on the hair of your wig. After washing, use TDi Knot & Tape Tab Sealer to seal the knots onto the inside of your lace wig cap again in order to firm the knots on each hair tile for protection from shedding. TDi Knot & Tape Tab Sealer Tangled Avoiding Tangled Hair: You may choose a satin pillowcase for night sleep in order to avoid friction. -7-
  • 9. -8- Cotton pillowcases with fibers rub against your hair, oppositely, satin pillowcases let the hair slip freely. Also for cheaper cost, you can place a satin petticoat or nightie over your cotton pillows. However, the effects will be also obviously different. Do not wear any barrettes or clips on your hair overnight as these accessories will be difficult to remove after one night. Also during washing hair, tangles may be also created due to scrubbing the hair. Before showering, you need to detangle the hair and apply Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo on your scalp. If you rinse the Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo onto the hair enough, there is no need to scrub the hair, and by this, the hair will be cleaned well. Later, you shall comb through your hair with a wide-toothed comb and make the conditioner rinse onto your hair. By this way, you do not need to take detangling on wet hair. Let the hair dry naturally instead of rubbing it by a towel. Wide-toothed comb Keep Your Hair Tied Up: Loose hair easily get tangled and damaged due to rubbing with your clothes and being caught by straps of handbags. The most proper to protect hair from tangling is to make braids. You may practice braiding your hair during the night. When you have been already with the skill for braids, you can wear braids in various types during the day. Meanwhile, buns are also way for protection of hair from tangles. By this method, we can keep short hair out of harmfulness. Removing Knots From Hair: Bobble-tipped brushes might cause damage to your hair and can not remove any knots as you suppose. You shall use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle the hair starting from the bottom several inches to up towards. You can begin with the bottom of a knot and remove it out, instead of pulling it widely. After detangling, you shall take a boar bristle brush for polishing and protecting your hair from damage. Brushing: Make sure that you brush the fair from the bottom upwards. Do not try to brush the lace wig through the attachment point, and this can be done only by a 100% Boar Bristle Brush. If you tug the lace wig hard, your own lace wig may be fallen down. Sleeping: You may make two big braids of the lace wig before you go to sleep, swim or do sports. You should make sure that the hairs are not tangled before braiding. Do not sleep when the lace wig is still wet. Before going to sleep, you must make the lace wig totally dry, since it will cause the lace wig matted if you sleep with wet hair. Wavy Hair/Curly Hair: It is suggest you to wet the wavy or curly lace wig every morning by water and Protein Leave-in Detangler. Do not use any products including alcohol, such as mousse, styling gel. Dry Ends: You shall use olive oil two or three times weekly before applying shampoo, which can prevent the lace wig from getting dry. It is very effective to leave olive oil on the lace wig for whole night. Keep in mind that the lace wig of lace wig Addition can not produce oil itself, so we need to -8-
