General Wigs Questions

1. What is Lace Front Wig and Full Lace Wig?

Lace Front Wig: "Lace Front Wig" or Front Lace Wig only has lace in the front of the wig and the remainder of the wig is made from a regular netted wig cap or other materials such as thin-skin. You are able to wear a front lace wig in high up dos or ponytails

Full Lace Wig: "Full Lace Wigs" are lace wigs which are designed with the entire wig cap being made from lace as well as lace all around the perimeter of the wig. Full lace wigs do not allow you to wear your hair in high up dos and ponytails. Upon applying & adhering the lace wig, a flawless, natural and undetectable hairline is created.

2. What are Bleached Knots and what is silk top ?

When a dark hair is tied to the base of a lace wig with a knot, you can see a dark dot on the skin, especially when the base is lace. Lace cannot hide the knot in the same way a monofilament base does. Bleached knots usually are only done at the front of the lace wig and it helps create the illusion that your hair is growing out of your head.

The silk top consists of a layer of lace, and silk fabric  on the top front of the cap. When the hair is knotted, the  knots are below the silk concealed between the layers, the  hair is then injected through the silk material making the  knots 100% invisible giving the illusion that the hair is  actually growing out of your scalp. There is no other  ventilation technique that creates a more flawless  appearance than hidden knots on a silk top, you don't need  to bleach the knots, you don't need to worry about any  other techniques to make the knots invisible or less  visible.

3. What does Density refer to?

The density refers to how thick the hair is and what density you order is really based on personal choice. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however, your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.

4. How long I can 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 about 6 months before needing hair added or a repair. If used as your main form of hair replacement and you are using daily, it is realistic to expect it to last 3-6 months before needing a repair or hair added.

5. Will the hairline on the lace wig have a natural look?

Yes, when you wear the lace wigs correctly according to our user guide, the hairline will have a natural look, just similar as your own hair growing from your scalp.

20.How often should I wash my wig?

This can vary a lot from person to person, and can change seasonally as a hot humid weather and cool dry weather will make things very different.
In generally most people wash their wigs about once every 10-20 days. Again this depends on how long the wig is used, the climate and whether it was exposed to things like smoke.
If you wear wigs every day, its best to have a backup wig or a small rotation of your favorite styles. This gives each individual wig less wear and also ensures you have something to wear if something doesn't go as planned with washing or restyling.

21.How to style your hair?

1) Your wig comes pre-styled with a basic style, but we encourage our clients to have their wigs customized by a professional hair stylist.  This is a great way to make the wig uniquely your own.   Often, a little trim on the bangs and a little thinning here or there can make all the difference in the world.  The wig should be cut while you are wearing it.  Everyone has a different face shape, a different forehead length, and different style preferences.  Seek out the assistance of experienced professional, and only allow the wig to be cut while it is on your head.
2) Your lace wig bought from Beahairs is made by 100% human hair  can all be used on low heat settings on human hair wigs. You can choose to perm the wig as you wish. However, we cannot give any suggestions how you can perm the wig. You shall choose the procedure you learned to style the hair.

22.How to put on a wig?

Wigs should be worn on the natural hairline (for most people it is four finger-widths above the eyebrow).

  • Remove wig from the plastic bag or box. Gently remove the protective hair net from your wig. Give your wig a few good shakes to the hair body. Some wigs need to be shaken to release the preset styling.
  • Brush your hair off your face at the top and sides. If your hair is too long, you may want use bobby pins to help keep it off your face, back at the sides, and up at the nape. Some women use a wig liner or wig cap to keep their existing hair in place.
  • Hold your wig at the sides with the woven label in back. Place it at your natural hairline and slide it on from front to back. Adjust the wig as needed so the front edge is just over your natural hairline. Use the ear tabs to center your wig from left to right. Adjust the straps in the back if necessary for a more secure fit.Tuck in any stray hairs at the front, sides and nape. Now you're ready for styling!

About the tangle :

 Hair Extensions can tangle due to dryness, oil or dirt build-up, salt water

chlorine and not combing  out  your hair daily (wide tooth comb),

 Make sure to wash & condition your hair at least once a week,twice a week is better. 

Use hydrating drops or consult your stylist for more help.

 

 About the smell:

 Wash the goods by marcel water to keep the style,we tight the top of the weft

so it is not easily get dry completely ,so can't avoid,

but  after wash and nurse many time will be ok.

 

About dry ends:

the virgin hair like our own hair,and the ends are easily get damaged even beffor cut from donor,

so the ends will feel dry,suggest nurse the goods as our own hair with oil.

24.which looks more natural and realistic? baby hair on lace or baby hair on silk top?

     This is a difficult question to answer,it differs, some love baby hair on silk top,some love baby hair on the lace,

      from this picture, you will see the difference~~~

25.What's the difference between machine wefts and hand-tied wefts?

Hair extensions are held together with a band of fine threads, these are called wefts. Wefted hair  can be machine or hand-tied. Handtied wefts are much thinner than machine made wefts,they will lay flat on the scalp to give a more natural look and significantly reduce hair bumps, but machine made wefts are more durable ,most would love machine wefts since it's much more cheaper!

26.How do I care for my hair extensions?

Wash the hair when you shower and make sure it is hanging loose .Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. Remember that hair extensions don't benefit from the scalp's natural oils like growing hair so make sure it is regularly conditioned.

After washing and conditioning, apply a good leave-on spray conditioner to keep it fresh between washes, if it gets wet in the rain apply some more and condition hair after exercise too as the salt in perspiration can be damaging.

Always pat excess water from the hair and try and let it try as naturally as possible. Avoid sleeping with wet or damp hair. If you do have to use a blow dryer, dry the hair from the ends up and use one with a diffusing tool.

Loosen the hair every morning and before you go to bed. Avoid combing tightly curled styles and shake them out instead. You can use a wide tooth comb or fingers to loosen wavy hair and a comb is fine for straighter hair extensions.
