How to prevent lace wig from shedding when back to school?

    Hello ladies, welcome to the Meetu Hair back to school hair care instructional blog series. Today, we're going to talk about a few tips on reducing hair shedding and getting the most out of your human hair lace wig.

    Don't forget your wig routine, even in your busy life back to school. It requires proper routine maintenance. Because lace wigs are made by hands tied individual hairs to a lace material, they're very fragile, and shedding can be expected. While this is a common problem, there are definite ways to eliminate excessive shedding through proper care.

How to prevent lace wig from shedding when back to school?

Tip 1: Use knot sealer 

    Knot sealer is a product that comes in a small spray bottle that is used to seal the knots on your lace wig. Turn the wig inside out, spray on the mesh or lace and wear it after it completely dries. It's also important to reseal the knots after every wash. But please remember it should be dry before spraying the knot sealer.

Tip 2: Do not scratch your scalp through your lace wig 

    When you feel an itchy scalp, please do not scratch your scalp through the lace wig. That will loosen the knots and lead to excessive shedding. Instead, pat your head with your hand, or remove your lace wig and treat your scalp with an anti-itch shampoo. 

Tip 3: Wide tooth comb or wig cushion brush 

    When it comes to brushing hair, use a wide-tooth comb or wig cushion brush. Comb from the tip and work your way up. At the same time, holding the hair above so that you will avoid pooling at the knots. If it's wavy hair, like deep wave hair or water wave hair, brush it more often is recommend as it's more likely to knot. Before washing the hair, make sure you comb it out thoroughly. Never comb your wig while wet.

Tip 4: Avoid high alcohol products

    It is suggested to avoid using care products with high alcohol content. These products can damage the hair, causing breakage and shedding. 

Tip 5: Remove all glue residue

    To prevent excessive shedding, you must remove all glue residue from the lace before washing. Let glue buildup on your unit can lead to bald spots. 

Tip 6: Air dry

    We highly recommend letting your human hair wig air dry after washing. Dryer heat can split the knots, causing shedding. If you must use your dryer, make sure it's in a cool setting. 

Tip 7: Nighttime care

    If you need to get up early in the morning after back to school, you may have no time to do your hairstyle in the early morning. We think most of you will sleep on the wig. However, it's very important to wrap a silk or satin scarf around your head when sleeping. That helps prevent friction which is the major reason for tangling and shedding. Besides, sleeping on the hair without any protection will deform your hair. We are sure you don't want to lose your beautiful water wave hair curls or any other wave hair curls.

Tip 7: Use products for wigs

    The products you use on your lace wig determine how your hair looks. More importantly, how long it will last. The hair on a lace wig does not receive the natural moisture from the scalp. Moisturizing with suitable products regularly will prevent drying and tangling. Wavy hair gets frizzy more easily, so you need to pay more attention to the moisturizing of the wavy hair, whether it's water wave hair or any other hair texture.

    Most hair care products are not made for lace wigs because they have high alcohol and chemical content. Alcohol severely dries the hair, while chemicals cost tangling. You should always use products that are made for lace wigs. The wrong products can cause the cuticles to rise, which leads to tangled and unmanageable hair.
