How to Reuse Real Hair Wigs After You Cut the Lace?

Lace frontal wigs turned out to be one of the most frequently used wig styles among various real hair wigs available today. The reason is simple and clear: lace frontal wigs embrace various style possibilities and natural appearance at the same time. Instead of buying cheap wigs that can only be used for once or twice, most wig wearers prefer high-quality human hair lace frontal wigs in that they can be reused repeatedly for around a year or longer if well maintained. Do you know how to reuse a wig after you cut the lace and the best way to achieve a gorgeous and natural look? In this blog, you’ll find out the answer.

What is a lace frontal wig?

As its name suggests, the lace frontal wig is designed with a piece of lace located at the front part of the wig, allowing the wearer to freely part their hair and create a natural hairline. It covers your hairline naturally and offers a comfortable wearing experience. With a 13x4 or 13x6 lace frontal wig, you can embrace a fresh look every day with various wig styles.

How to install and cut the lace?

It is an essential and important task to cut or trim the lace on the front of the wig properly to fit your face well. The wig will be left useless if you fail to complete this procedure precisely. Fortunately, here are five guiding tips to follow when cutting the lace.

First, braid your natural hair into a cornrow or a low pigtail to create a flat base.

Second, put on a wig cap to protect your scalp and keep your natural hair in place.

Third, try the lace frontal wig on before you can go with the next step more accurately.

Fourth, in order to avoid mistakes, instead of cutting the entire lace piece at one time, you can divide your lace into smaller pieces and trim each piece little by little.

Fifth, cut the lace in sections gently along your hairline and keeping not less than 2mm space between the hairline and the comb, otherwise, the wig will come out if the lace is left too close to the hairline.

What is a pre-cut lace wig?

A pre-cut lace wig is a type of wig that comes with the lace material already cut and shaped to fit your hairline. The lace is typically made of a thin and transparent mesh-like material that creates the illusion of a natural scalp when placed on the head. Pre-cut lace wigs are ideal options for wearers who prefer a natural look and don’t want to spend too much time installing and cutting wigs as the lace has been trimmed beforehand to fit the hairline. However, it is important to note that pre-cut lace wigs still require some customization to ensure the most natural look possible, such as trimming the lace around the ears and styling the wig to fit your desired look.

How to remove a lace frontal wig?

Safely removing a lace frontal wig is essential to avoid damage to both the wig and your natural hair. Follow these steps to remove the wig properly:

1. Apply a wig adhesive solvent or remover along the hairline to dissolve the adhesive.
2. Gently lift the lace at the edges using your fingers.
3. Slowly peel off the wig from your skin, being careful not to tug on your natural hair.
4. Clean the wig by gently washing it before the next use.

How to reuse a lace frontal wig?

Although every wig wearer knows that a lace frontal wig can be reused, it takes time and patience to make the best of your wig. To make it last longer and add brilliance to your appearance, please refer to the following measures.

Wash regularly

Just like your natural hair that needs to be washed and conditioned regularly, the lace frontal wig also requires proper maintenance. Usually, you can wash it every 4 to 6 wears or whenever it gets dirty. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner to remove the dirt, oil or sweat thoroughly from the wig. Make sure you’re doing the wash gently and in warm water to keep your wig well.

Brush under wet conditions

Use a wide-tooth brush to comb your wig by sections when it’s wet and walk your way up slowly. This procedure can help reduce tangles and keep it smooth. Don’t ever comb your wig when it’s dry, otherwise it’s prone to tangle or shed to a great extent.

Store properly

When you’ve finished washing, you can hang your wig either on a wig stand or training head to let it dry naturally. If you are accustomed to using a hairdryer, bear in mind to blow the wig with cool wind, since hot wind may cause further damage to its texture and shorten its lifespan accordingly. Another thing you want to avoid is keeping away from direct sunlight exposure.

Invest in good quality wigs

If you buy a synthetic lace wig that cost you dozens of dollars, like a cosplay wig, it might not be worn again because the synthetic fiber is very easy to tangle. The average price of human hair lace frontal wigs on the market is over a hundred dollars, the wigs’ quality are much better and are heat friendly, so it can be worn repeatedly and even can last a year if with proper care.


Avoid always wearing the same wig

Most of the wig wearers have more than one wig. It is not only for the purpose of different textures, styles, lengths or colors on diversified occasions, but also aimed at allowing your wig to have a break. Wearing your wigs in turns can help them restore luster and look their best.
