Lace wigs, lace frontals & Closures

It is very important that you know laces are to be done by a person with experience. Laces are delicate and easy to damage if you don't know what you are are doing or how to care for them. The hair is only attached to the lace by a knot. If you over process your knots, you will experience a serious case of shedding. If you are too rough on the lace by combing & brushing it will shed. Laces are not meant to last forever. Originally lace wigs, frontals & closures were for movies & performances. They have now transitioned into being an everyday wear for everyone. It's important you know and understand the lifespan of laces. Your bundles can be re-used 1-2 years with proper care & depending how often you wear them. You will be able to reuse your lace up to 5 times with proper care. Keep in mind that they will shed overtime.

WARNING

Using the wrong products on your extensions will result in dry, dull, tangled, damaged and unmanageable hair extensions! Once natural hair is cut from a donor’s head, it stops receiving much-needed nutriments that nourish and keeps the hair soft, shiny & tangle-free. It’s therefore vitally important to maintain and treat your natural hair extensions with the appropriate maintenance products that will restore/maintain its natural softness, silk and keep it tangle-free. Heat is your hair biggest enemy. The more you use on it, the shorter the life span of your hair. Use heat in moderation. Do not use high temperatures. High temperatures can damage the hair, including permanently altering the hair texture. Use styling products that are alcohol free. Also stay away from the beach & pool water with your extensions. Wetting your whole head will damage and dry the hair out completely.
