What are the differences among HD lace, transparent lace, and Swiss lace in wig making?

Friday, December 6, 2019 4:45:11 PM America/Los_Angeles

HD lace arises in recent years, so it is a new thing in the wig market and many companies advertise it is highly invisible when you put it on your skin. HD lace is thin, soft, very see-through so when you put it on your head, it will get very undetectable and blend very well with your skin tone. However, it doesn’t suit for wig beginners, because it is very thin and delicate and you need to handle it very carefully. And the lace is very soft so you need to glue it down, then it will not lift up but if you take it off and want to clean the glue, the lace will be easily torn up. And HD lace wig normally is not cheap so if you want to wear it every day or you are a wig beginner, it is not a good choice for your budget. But in some special occasions, like wedding, photoshoot or prom, you can wear it which will give you a flawless looking.

Transparent lace is basically a white version of normal lace, so the lace is in white color, or more specifically, light beige color. And this kind of lace is more suitable for light skin tone, like Caucasians or Asians, and for the darker or brown skin tone, transparent lace will be visible so you have to tint the lace to make its color similar to your skin tone. There are also light brown lace, medium brown lace, and dark brown lace which are more suitable for darker-skinned people, but if your skin is fair, pale or porcelain, transparent lace will blend very well on your head.

Swiss lace has always been the best kind of lace in the market and is commonly used in the wig making since it is soft, see-through and more durable than HD lace but thicker than it. Swiss lace will melt well in your skin when you wear it so it will give you a very undetectable looking. It is more durable than HD lace but it is still easily ripped off if you stretch the lace forcefully.

The lace that GAMAY human hair lace wigs adopted is soft, undetectable Swiss lace .GAMAY lace is thicker and more sturdy than HD lace so it will lay very well even without glue if you choose a right cap size, and you don’t need to worry it will lift up because the elastic band inside of the wig cap and the adjustable strap in the back will help you lay down the lace.

And you can take it off every day. If you want to use the glue for long-term wearing, that’s also okay. When you want to clean the glue and wash the wig, the lace will not easily be torn up. And if you take good care of it, it will last a long time even over one year. So it is a good choice for wig beginners or day-wearers. 

And we can add the fake scalp underneath the lace in the cap, because the lace is see-through and your natural hair will be seen easily, but with the fake scalp structure, it will avoid this situation and you also don’t need to wear a tight wig cap which may not be comfortable. And when you part the hair anywhere, it will offer you a “grow out of your scalp” looking.

How do I install a fake scalp glueless wig, and how do I care for it?

Friday, November 22, 2019 12:29:59 AM America/Los_Angeles

1. Cutting the lace

First, you will need to cut the excess lace from your wig. It's really quite simple, just cut the lace all the way back to where the hair first begins, making sure to cut off as much lace as possible without cutting off the baby hair. Notes: please don't cut the lace until you are satisfied with the lace wig.

2. Wearing a wig cap

Prepare your own hair for the application by making sure it as flat as possible. You can put your hair into small cornrows, or do a hard flat set with gel if your hair is shorter, then wearing a wig cap to hold the hair.

3. Adjusting wig position

Neatly position the wig on your head, and get the sides combs slid under to ensure the wig is very snug and not come off during the day. Adjust the back adjustable strap to fit your head very well.

Tips: It will look more realistic to put wig a little behind your hairline.

WIG CARE

1. Wigs can only be washed by hand, not by machine.

2. After cleaning, do not blow with a hairdryer. It is best to place it in a cool, ventilated place to avoid damage from the sun's high-temperature exposure.

3. Just after washing, it is not suitable for combing. Some girls will comb the wig immediately after cleaning it. This will inadvertently damage the wig, and it is best to take care when it is dry.

4. The number of wig cleaning should not be too frequent. It can be washed once a month to prevent the hair from falling.

5. Washed wig, If you don't need to wear wigs regularly, you can spray less hair oil.

6. Washed wigs should be kept in a dry place.

Change your hair in an instant, without making a permanent commitment. You can choose a wig that enhances your natural hair, or make a statement with a bold, new look. Either way, you have total control over your style, head to toe.

2. Convenience.

The time spent blow-drying, straightening, curling, treating, coloring, styling, and maintaining your hair can add up to more than you realize. Wearing a wig can (almost literally) give you more hours in the day that can otherwise be used for… whatever you want!

3. Thinning hair.

Both men and women can suffer from hair loss for a variety of reasons, including genetics, hormonal changes, illness, and medication. Many people consider hair to be a vital part of their overall appearance, and wigs can hide the thinning and restore confidence.

Wearing a wig can protect the health of your hair, as there is no need to continue damaging it every day with harmful styling products and heat treatments. Wigs can also protect your budget, since you won’t need as many salon appointments.

5. Fun.

Wearing a wig, in general, is a fun way to spruce up your style. If you enjoy Halloween, costume parties, masquerade balls, cosplay events, or just like playing “dress-up,” wigs offer boundless opportunities to truly define your character.

Are hair wigs comfortable?

Friday, October 18, 2019 7:06:07 PM America/Los_Angeles

1. Size.

Some make the mistake of choosing a wig that’s too tight for the fear of it falling off or moving around. But there are other ways to secure it and it’s certainly not through getting a wig that’s too tight. To get your size, measure your head circumference from your front hair line up to the nape of your neck and then measure also from ear to ear, like forming headband with the tape measure on top of your head. Give your measurements to the wig provider so they can give you the right size.

2. Type of cap feature.

Wigs have different types of caps: lace front wig cap, full lace wig cap, 360 lace wig cap. The most comfortable of the three caps is the full lace cap because it’s soft.

3. Proper use and care for wigs.

Wigs can be uncomfortable if you wear it the entire day. You need to let your natural hair and scalp breathe. As much as possible, take off your wigs while sleeping.

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 7:57:22 PM America/Los_Angeles

1.Starting Out:

Gently shake the wig to fluff the style. Identify the front and the back of the wig. Notice the adjustable tabs inside of the wig. They can be adjusted if the fit is too loose or to tight.

2.Orienting Your Wig:

Place your wig on a flat surface in front of you so that you are looking down inside of the wig. The straps should be at the top (the back of the wig).

3.Putting Your Wig On:

Grasp the wig by the ear tabs on the side of the wig and flip the wig over the top of your head. Slip the wig on, starting at the front hairline and working towards the back. The front of the wig should sit where your hairline is (approximately 4 finger widths from the top of your eyebrows). Gently rock the wig back and forth until it is sitting on your front hairline.

4.Be Gentle:

Do not grab the wig by the hairs, but handle the wig from the base of the cap. Be especially careful of hand tied areas and do not pull on these areas when putting on your wig.

HOW TO CARE FOR A WIG?

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 1:21:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

NATURAL HUMAN HAIR WIGS CARE

You will not need special hair care products for natural wigs care – products that you use for your natural hair (normal hair) will fit for human hair wigs care.

Wig preparation (brushing)

Put a wig on a special wig stand.

Gently spread out hair bundles with your fingers.

Gently brush wig’s hair with rare-tooth comb or fingers. Do not touch a wig cap. Brush from hair ends in the direction of hair roots.

Wig washing

 You should consider washing your wig around the tenth time you wear it. This recommendation will vary depending on just how dirty your wig gets or the kind of venues you are wearing it to. Where you go and what you do, including weather conditions and how much you perspire will weigh heavily on how often you clean it.

Human hair wigs and synthetic wigs both should be washed at about the same frequency however the way in which you cleanse them will be vastly different.

Human hair wigs need to be detangled rinsed in cold water and then massaged with shampoo much like real hair. You'll need to make sure that the shampoo is lathered in evenly throughout the whole wig. When you are finished, rinse the hair and make sure the water flows in the same direction throughout the wig so it doesn't get tangled. When you are done with a full rinse you can gently dry it with a towel and condition the wig. Follow by rinsing in the same manner, dry with a towel lightly and allow it to air dry for the next day.

Wig nourishment

If you want to have silky and shiny wig’s hair, use hair balsam

Also use hair conditioner – rinse onto hair or soak in cool water for 15-30 min. You can leave unwashed conditioner on hair.

Wig drying

Put the soaking wig in a soft loopy towel and gently drain, but not wring.

Wet wig can be dried by hairdryer or left to dry on a towel in room temperature. The latter drying way is much better.

Wig holding and protection

Hold the wig far from heating devices, open fire and other high temperature sources.

If you wear the wig daily, hold it on a special wig stand or model.

If you wear the wig rarely, completely dry wig could be kept in paper box or package.
