What is a Lace Front Wig?
Lace front wigs are manufactured with a thin lace that extends from ear to ear across the hairline.
Lace front wigs are made similar to a regular ladies wig along the back and sides of the unit.
When you receive the unit the lace will be really long in the front, you will cut the lace along the front of the unit. The goal here is to create a new hairline. You will not cut all of the lace, as you will apply adhesive to the lace/your new hairline.
Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that it is growing directly from your head.
What is a Full Lace Wig?
Full lace wigs are manufactured with a cap, and a thin lace sewn on top of the cap. Individual hairs are then sewn into the thin lace.
Full lace wigs will have lace all around the unit, and require the lace to be cut all around the unit. You will be cutting a hairline around your entire head. By doing so, once done you can wear your hair anyway you like, ponytails, up-dos etc. Think about it. With the wig, you have just cut yourself a new hairline around your entire head.
Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front, back, and sides of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that all of the hair is growing directly from your head.
What is the difference between a lace front wig and a full lace wig?
A lace front wig is not with lace around the back, so you cannot wear it in a high ponytail with back. A full lace wig is with lace all around available for being worn in a high ponytail, which will give a more natural looking than lace front wigs.
What are Bleached Knots?
Bleached knots is a chemical process to make the wig look more natural by bleaching the black hair knot crochetted to the lace cap to a lighter one, similar to our own scalp color . One con of bleached knots process is that it would cause hair damage and shedding due to chemical is used during bleached knots process. So we highly suggest you to bleach knots just around the perimeter . At the same time, you could use the foundation or concealer of your skin tone to lighten the knots on full cap tp get the same natural look.
What does Density refer to?
Density refers to how thin or thick your hair is. The standard and common choice is 100% with medium density.
How long can I expect the wig to last?
The life of your wig will depend on your use and care of it. If handled properly, it should last you 6 months to a year and even longer depending on your handling and use.
Do the wigs come with the cut like the picture?

What is a Preplucked Hairline and Widow's Peak?
A preplucked hairline is a natural hairline with right amount of hair along the hairline area which looks like the human hair wig is growing from the scalp. Usually a human hair wig without plucked hairline is always dense and thick at the hairline area . There is a lot of work to be done if you want to get a more natural look after you receive the human hair wig , but with the preplucked hairline, the hair along the hairline area are already plucked before shipping which gives it a more natural look .
A Widow's peak is M-shaped hairline or Pointed Hairline. If your front hairlines make the shape of M or come down in point above forehead , you could get your human hair wig customized to a Widow's Peak for a more natural look.
Will the hairline on the lace wig have a natural look?

How shall I prevent the lace wig from tangling?
You may choose a satin pillowcase for night sleep in order to avoid friction. 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.
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.
How can I avoid my hair from 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
What are hair extensions?
hair extensions are hair that is attached to your own hair to give you the appearance and feel of longer hair. Hair extension can be made from synthetic hair or from real human hair.
What types of hair extension are there?
There are many different types of hair extension, including:
1. weaving - a process in which you create tracks on the individuals head and sew the hair extensions on. This method is the most widely used in adding hair extensions.
2. Braiding - a process in which you add hair extensions by braiding them in. There are many types of braiding techniques such as cornrow but they vary from one beautician to another.
3. Fusion - a process in which the extended hair is attached directly to your own hair by a heated glue stick. In this method, an acrylic glue stick is placed inside a glue gun that heats and melts the glue. The hair extension and the glue are then attached directly onto the individual's hair.
Bonding - A simple method of extending hair. A bonding glue is brushed or applied onto the extension hair and then applied to the root of the real hair. This is more of a temporary method of extending hair.
U - Tip - a process in which a "U" shaped spot of glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to be attached by using the hair extension iron.
I - Tip - a process in which an "I" shaped spot of glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to be attached by using the hair extension iron or with a Ring. With the Ring, there's no heat applied to the hair.
Ring - X - one of the new processes in which the metal ring is already on the hair ready to attach using the Ring - Xer. It is very easy to apply and can be re-used.
What is weaving?
Hair for weaving is manufactured with and without the weft. Wefted hair extensions are held together with a band of fine threads. Wefted hair comes in two types: machine wefted and hand-tied.
Due to the high cost of handmade products most extension hair is machine wefted in fine, medium or heavy wefts. Medium wefts are used for the majority of wefted hair extensions. Hand-tied wefted hair is more expensive but is often preferred due to its light weight - hand-tied hair is also more resistant to shedding.
What is a weft?
A weft is strands of hair that have been sewn on by machine or hand-tied along one edge to create a line of hair. The hand-tied hair is a much smaller and thinner weft than the machine weft. Hand-tied hair is also more secure because the weft has been individually made by hand, which means less shedding. Also, since the weft is less bulky it makes it flatter and less visible to give a more natural look.
Hand-tied VS Machine Weft
The hand-tied hair is a much smaller and thinner weft than the regular machine wefted hair. These wefts are handmade so the hair is more secure and allows longer wear per track than the regular machine wefts, and it dramatically reduces shedding too! The hand-tied weft also reduces the bulkiness of the track when it is weaved on, this allows the hair to flow much more freely and provide a lot more body.
Hair without a weft is called BULK. Bulk hair is loose and is used primarily for strand bonding and braiding.
Cornrow track extensions - cornrow tracking is the oldest and most widely used weaving technique. The technique is the same as with tracking only cornrow braids are used instead of weaving cord to form the tracks.
Invisible Braiding (also called Tree Braiding) is a popular cornrow technique which allows weaved hair to be put in without threads or glues. Weaved hair is braided in with the client's hair in cornrowed braid layers, close to the scalp. As the braid goes in place, the weaved hair is separated from the natural hair in small sections and pulled away from the braid in a close pattern. The natural hair ends up fully braided and serves as a support for the weaved hair.
Invisible braids are a great choice for anyone wanting to give their natural hair a break from chemicals. Invisible braids also go in fast but do not last as long as more traditional braids. This particular type of braid will therefore need to be redone more frequently, for this reason we recommend that synthetic hair be used invisible braiding.
About Pre-glued Hair
This type of hair has an adhesive on each strand section and is easily applied. The strands are made with precise amounts of hair to provide the best coverage with the minimum of bulk. Since the hair adhesive is already applied, less time is needed to apply the hair and the pieces are more evenly distributed for greater flexibility and a natural flow.
IMPORTANT: All hair bonding products are considered professional products and require some level of skill to be used properly.
