“How long does your lace wigs last?” is the most important and the most answered question we are asked because purchasing a lace wig is an investment which the wearer hopes to be able to use for quite some time. Many women, men, and children wear wigs or hair systems to cover hair loss from medical treatments or conditions, chemical treatments like perms and straighteners, alopecia, and bald spots. And some wear them just for the easy hairstyle, or just for the fun of it.

Here’s our answer to the question: “How long does your lace wigs last?”

Divas Lace Wigs can only answer this question based on the products we offer and sell to our customers.

When considering how long a wig will last, you must think of QUALITY at the top and second in line is life span of the hair.

QUALITY: Quality is the number one answer to the question. The type of hair selected is the most important aspect of your wig. Quality helps to determine how long your last wig Remy or Virgin Remy human hair.

  • Remy Hair: This can be an excellent quality hair. This hair has multiple donors but all the cuticles should be in intact and in the same direction. Remy hair has been chemically processed for color or texture, but the cuticle remains intact so the hair will not tangle as much.

  • Virgin Remy: This is the best quality hair on the market. Virgin Remy is 100% unprocessed, raw human hair that has never been chemically processed. The hair has not been dyed, bleached, or permed or any change to the color or texture. All cuticles are kept intact and run consistently in the same direction. Keeping the cuticle intact provides for a natural appearance and gives you a great looking head of hair. It styles very easily, and although you can use heat, it handles heat at a low setting and can hold a curl most of the day.

LIFE SPAN: Now that you know about quality, the next most important step is maintenance which impacts the life span of the wig. The life span depends largely on you because it’s up to you to how well you take care of the wig and the hair. The hair in the wig needs to be treated better than you treated your own hair, as the hair in your wig does not grow back, nor does it get any oils from the scalp to keep it nourished, free-flowing and supple.

Here are a few simple tips to maintain the hair in the lace wig:

  • Moisturize to maintain the hair. To add luster and life and wipe away the dry hair, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. This is essential since the hair doesn’t receive nutrients from the scalp like your natural hair would.

  • Detangle the hair by combing from the tip to the root. If you comb from the root down, you create more tangles on the way to the tip. This induces strain on the hand-tied knots and increases hair breakage. The end result is loose knots at the root and hair loss. When you comb hair from the root avoid hair loss or damage. Start at the tip and comb up towards the root. Always detangle before shampooing and conditioning and detangle after the hair is washed and conditioned.

-Straight and straight type hair textures with a slight curl or wave, use a wide-toothed comb

or wig brush to comb out the tangles. Or if you like, your fingers.

-Curl/Wavy hair use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb. Do not brush.

  • Shampoo and condition using a mild and non-stripping shampoo. And press with a towel to dry.

  • Air Dry is the best! But if you must blow-dry the hair, proceed with caution. Use a low setting. Overusing the hairdryer can cause the knots to come loose, resulting in the hair loss.

  • Heat Styling tools like flatirons, curlers, and hair dryers, it’s always best to use them at a low temperature. Use a heat protection spray to protect the hair.

  • Style your hair when slightly damp. For curly hair, use your fingers to fluff and style as desired. Want curls? Rather than use heat on the hair you can achieve curls using rollers or Bantu knot to avoid damage to the hair.

  • Styling Products are can be helpful to help maintain your style. If you use these products. Avoid putting styling products at the root to avoid damage to the knots.
