B-What have damaged the hair of my full lace wig?

Human hair is composed primarily of proteins. It is made of three layers ---the medulla, cortex, and cuticle. There are many different factors that can lead to great hair damage of your full lace wig, like pollution, weather, heat, hair tool misuse.

Full lace wig hair damage is most is characterized internally by loose or busted hair knots and broken protein bonds on the shaft of the hair.

-Sun damage
Sun’s UV rays penetrate the hair, damaging the follicle down to the shaft. This fact that is sadly impossible to avoid – unless avoiding the sun altogether, however when exposed to extreme sun and one can use precaution such as hair products with a built-in SPF, or braid the hair of the unit in order to minimize exposure.

-Excessive brushing
Brushing the hair of your full lace wig too much and/or too often, especially when the hair is wet or damp, can cause severe breakage due to naturally formed hair knots. A wide tooth comb is a much better choice, especially if used at slow pace through the hair.

-Too much heat
The healthiest way to dry the hair of a lace wig is to allow it to air dry, on the other hand the quickest way is to blow dry the hair. However blow dryers as well as flat irons, hot curlers and curling irons for that matter, tend to expose full lace wig hair to extreme heat.

By the way here are some great ways to safely use your heat appliances:

Before using a hot hair tool use a thermal leave-in protectant in the hair of your full lace wig
Use the hair dryer on a high speed and a low to medium heat to minimize thermal exposure
Make sure that tourmaline is a component of the used hair tools as tourmaline infused in the plates of flat irons and in the heating element of hair dryers adds to the health of each hair follicles
Always use blow dryers attachments like a diffuser or a concentrator that will help channel the heat to the exact place you want it to be
Use a professional flat iron – cheap flat irons usually heat unevenly, causing part of the hair strands to singe while the other parts remains undone. Actually a ceramic iron is ideal! 100% ceramic plates are best, but ceramic coated is still better for the hair of your full lace wig hair than titanium or other metal alloy plates.

-Harsh hair products
Over-washing does not damages the hair of your full lace wig, but harsh chemicals in shampoos do. These unforgiving shampoos deplete the hairs natural oils and dry the hair strands out. Choose a gentle deep-cleansing moisturizing shampoo that creates soft, shiny and silky hair that is easy to manage.
A deep-cleansing shampoo that contains great conditioning agents like protein, panthenol and triglycerides, and also high levels of silicone is best.
Also bleach, hair dyes and certain harsh chemical contained in styling gels, mousses, hairsprays, especially any type of alcohol, wear down protein bonds in the hair making it prone to chipping and breaking off.

-Cold weather
Cold weather causes hair to dry out due to the lack of humidity in the air. Combined with the cold air, dry hair becomes brittle, fragile and breaks easily. To protect the hair of your full lace wig in such climates, have deep conditioning treatments often. Deep conditioning treatments feed and strengthen hair with a combination of essential amino acids, proteins, and effective moisturizers. Doing deep conditioning treatment one a week will help lock in moisture and replenish the hair strength, allowing each hair strand to regain its internal weight and body and minimize the tendency to frizz.

-Chlorine and Salt Water
Chlorine and other chemicals contain in swimming pool as well as natural sea salt from the shore, can be extremely damaging to hair if proper precautions is not taken prior to exposure. Always shampoo and condition the hair of your full lace wig immediately after swimming – a clarifying shampoo is best.
Clarifying shampoos contain acetic acid, a chemical compound, though is known for its de-scaling abilities.
Applying a clarifying shampoo after a swimming session can help remove harmful deposits from the hair of your full lace wig, without stripping away moisture giving the hair a fresh start, and restoring natural shine.

Daily routine activities such as leaning to the back of your seat and even sleeping cause friction. The constant rubbing of hair against a surface breaks hair. Protect your hair while you sleep, with a satin bonnet for example or use a satin pillow case and there will be no friction between your pillow and the hair of your full lace wig that can cause damaged hair.

C-How to Treat successfully the Damaged Hair of your Full Lace Wig
If the hair of your full lace wig look dull, lack of luster even, have split ends or feel crunchy then unfortunately the hair of your full lace wig is damaged.

Back off from heat styling as much as possible! Continuous heat is zapping the hair of moisture and is pretty much leaving it fried. When you do need the heat, use a heat protecting spray beforehand, and try to use the coolest settings. From then on use shampoos with high moisturizing formulas, however do not over-wash. Always braid loosely the hair of your full lace wig prior to shampooing. Use high grade leave-in conditioners daily and apply a hair mask weekly to really soften the hair strands.
A hair mask is a more concentrated conditioner for people who want an extra shot of moisture to deal with damage or frizz. A hair mask is applied once a week or once a month or as needed, while a conditioner could be used daily or as needed to treat dryness/tangling, with effects usually lasting until your next shampoo.
Do not brush the hair of your full lace wig when it is still wet. Always use a wide tooth comb to gently ease out the stubborn knots. Invest in a detangling spray if the hair is extremely fine (like European hair) and prone to hair knots.
Remember, washing the hair of your full lace wig daily really is not necessary. Dry shampoos are great at soaking up hair products build-up and some dry shampoos even leave a nice fresh scent.
Check whether you have hard water in your shower. Hard water (as opposed to soft textured water) has a higher mineral content. There are some shower heads that can remove some of those minerals and leave you with softer water which leaves lesser amounts of mineral deposits in the hair of your full lace wig hair after rinsing. Last but not least, use gentle hair ties that won't snag or cause your hair to snap or break.
Add shine to your hair by using hair products that instantly softens and smooth hair, that improves hair's elasticity, that also acts as an antioxidant and protects against environmental damage

Taking care skillfully of your full lace wig when it is damaged will gradually make the hair of your unit stronger, softer, silkier and healthier looking. Remember, your full lace wig is an added investment to your beauty and one of the first things others notice about you
