How to Soften Lace on Wigs

A friend of mine was unhappy about the hair, “The lace fronts are hard and the edges are prone to leaving small scratches near the hairline. I was hoping that someone could have a solution to smooth the edges of the lace, or in some way stop scratches from occurring. I have noticed, from my wig buying experience that most expensive wigs come with this feature of a lace front. I’ve purchased some recently because I lost a lot of my hair in a short time in the past few months because of Alopecia. In the wig shop, they cut the lacing for me, however, the issue remains. ” How can I help soften the lace on a hair wig? Here are some suggestions.

1. Tapes

How do I use stiff fronts of lace is to tape them. I must make use of tape to keep it in place. I wrap the tape that covers the front edge and the lace’s front rests on it to ensure that it won’t scratch

2. Use baking soda

It could be that a water softening filtration system is expensive and isn’t easy to locate If you’re not able to install a filter for water softening at home such as a baking soda-based bath, it can soften your water in the tub. When you bathe your frontal lace hair approximately every 3 weeks hair will become soft and bouncy. It will also retain its shine. You might be amazed at how long this routine will prolong the life of the lace front certain owners have reported keeping the wigs in a good state for up to two years!

In addition to the texture, bounce, and shine in the bath, baking soda assists in removing tap residue from the edges of poly units as well. It is possible to see the hair’s residue products floating up over the bath after you are soaking it overnight.

Here’s the recipe for a baking soda bath

  • Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of baking soda in the huge Rubbermaid container;
  • You should use at least a three four-quart tub if you’re using the entire cap unit, for instance, 1.5 up to two-quart sizes are suitable for smaller units.
  • Utilizing water the temperature you can still get your hands in the tub, then fill it up. Be sure to not put in too much water otherwise, the tub could overflow once you’ve added the hairpiece, and don’t place the unit in until you’ve got it.
  • Mix the ingredients until the baking soda has completely dissolved.
  • Cleanse your lace and place it into the solution and make sure it’s completely submerged within the mix.
  • Cover the container to ensure that pets and children aren’t able to get into it. Leave your unit in the water for a minimum of four hours. If you can, let the front unit with lace soak for a few hours.
  • After the time for soaking has been completed, remove the unit from the sink and wash the unit as thoroughly as you can. When you’re sure that there isn’t any residue, wash it using the clarifying shampoo. Rinse it once more, and then apply a conditioning conditioner that is a bit stronger.

3. Use vinegar

I wash my clothes in 1c. acid and hot water inside the tub. After that, I wash my face in Dove moisturizing shampoo. Let it rest for 5 minutes. Rinse and then spray my Apogee leave-in conditioner. I did this to my wig. felt stiff even before I removed it from the box, but it now appears really nice.
