What Cause A Wig Dry?
 

Before we take some actions to keep our lace front wigs human hair moisturized, we should find out what causes hair to dry.
 

For natural hair, your scalp will produce a natural oil named sebum which helps to keep natural hair moisturized. While natural oils are what human hair lace front wigs unavoidably lack, which causes them to become dry over time.
 

We all know the sun will tend to put a toll on and dry hair out. However, there are also many other contributing factors for dry out, such as over washing, using hot tools without heat protecting products, and temperature shifts from indoor and outdoor air, and so on.
 

Heat styling is a big factor. Even diffusing curls or sitting under a hooded dryer to set a protective style can also zap too much moisture from hair. In addition, how you dry your hair post-wash also contributes to dry out. Using a regular terry cloth towel to dry hair soaks up a ton of the moisture, but it also causes friction on the hair cuticle that leaves it frizzy and vulnerable to damage.
 

How To Keep A Wig Moisturized
 

Look For The Best Hair Oil
 

If your lace front wig human hair has become very dry, you can try to apply some natural oil to your wig, which is highly recommended by experts and scientists. Using oil to create a seal over the cuticle will keep moisture in, thus moisturizing the hair. And the top oils that have been proven to effectively moisturize the hair and scalp until now are tea tree oil, olive oil, and coconut oil. Or you regularly use some hair care products that contain these ingredients to moisturize your hair.
 

If you are having trouble deciding which oil you use, please allow us to show some of our favorites as a reference.
 

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is good for strengthening hair and reducing buildup. Besides, it also can help the hair retain its natural protein. It’s good for fine hair.
 

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish hair, including vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, and zinc. Therefore, it will keep your wig looking lush, shiny, and healthy.
 

Argon Oil

Argon is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids so it can help turn dry, coarser hair into softer and shinier hair. In addition, it will also help with fly away and frizzing to some extent.
 

Macadamia Oil

Macadamia oil is best for very dry hair. After spending a long day in the sun, this miracle oil is lovely to help restore your hair. Notice: You could use the oil products every day, but use them as little as possible to keep hair from getting weighed down.
 

Use Hot Tools As Less As Possible

Although wigs made of 100% virgin human hair can be dyed, permed, bleached, highlighted, straightened, or styled as your own hair according to your need, these hot tools will damage hair and make hair dry out. One study showed that temperatures over 203 degrees will damage hair, while regular blow dryers can reach temperatures over 400 degrees. Even though the diffuser can help spread the heat out, it still will blast moisture out of the hair faster causing the strands to dry out when it is too hot.
 

In a word, you should reduce the use of hot tools possible to keep your full lace wig in a good condition.

Pick Up Moisturizing Shampoo And Conditioner
 


 

Regular shampoos can cause hair to lose its natural oils. So you should use moisturizing shampoo instead of the normal one to maintain your hair more regularly, which is well known to help keep your hair moist even in the winter. We recommend deep maintenance of the hair once a week.
 

Replace Regular Towel With Microfiber Towel Or T-shirt

Using a regular towel to dry hair will soak up a ton of the moisture, but it also causes friction on the hair cuticle that leaves it frizzy and vulnerable to damage. So rush to change the way to dry out your hair after washing.For example, use a T-shirt or a microfiber towel to absorb moisture without rubbing. 
 

Wring hair with your hands first and then place the HD lace wig over the towel. Don’t rub back and forth. Instead, please pat and squeeze the hair gently until the moisture is absorbed.
 

Wash Your Hair Sparingly

First of all, you don’t need to wash your headband wigs as often as your own hair. But there is no doubt that dirt and oil can build up, thus causing your wig to lose its luster after not washing for several weeks. More importantly, your curly headband wigs may also become stiff and hard to style.
 

You should place the wig in a shallow basin filled with warm water and wig shampoo and wash very gently. Simply swish your wig in the water for a few minutes without rubbing. Take it out and lay it on towels to dry. Of course, you can pat the excess water off your wig, but had better not rub your wig as this may cause it to lose its curls.
