Experts and trainers will always give you the 411 on the unique service, and after our talk, there's no surprise why so many women love it. Micro-balding is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows.
The professional lash and eyebrow expert also revealed that those who just want to add a slight arch are also great candidates, and the results are a natural, undetectable fringe. Too often customers share horror stories about losing their hair from matting, adhesives and wig clips while wearing lace wigs.
While lace front wigs are typically preferred in appearance, the application methods that come along with them can cause discomfort and even allergic reactions. Since heavy-duty adhesives are used when applying lace front wigs, it is not uncommon for hair loss to occur with the repeated use of lace front wigs.
The combination of irritating adhesives and tension on the hairline can cause extensive damage, with receding hairlines occurring as an undesirable—but common—outcome.
When looking for a natural option that closely mimics the look of natural hair, lace front wigs are often preferred over traditional wigs. Because of the way they are applied, they can create the illusion of the hair growing directly from the natural scalp. Unlike with regular wigs, lace front wigs can create a more natural and undetectable hairline.
Women often choose to wear lace front wigs because they love the look. However, the unfortunate reality of wearing lace front wigs for some is that it can have a negative impact on a woman's appearance, and ultimately, her self-esteem.
Many women are led to believe that these lace front wigs are protective to their hair, only to find out the hard way that this is not the case – when applying harmful adhesives. When premature hair loss, receding hairlines, irritation, and even infections occur, most women are blindsided and devastated by the harm that has been done.
Actress Countess Vaughn was brave enough to come out and expose the repercussions she faced by wearing lace front wigs simply because she wanted to avoid others having to deal with the same pain and discomfort.
We are often influenced by the images of beauty we see in the media, adopting these standards both consciously and subconsciously. Many women feel the need to fit a specific mold, making decisions about their image based upon cultural norms.
Many women would be more comfortable wearing their hair natural if it were not for external forces that shame them for their beautiful natural texture. The many voices and images are what make women feel as though their beauty relies entirely on their conformity, encouraging women to straighten their hair to be seen as attractive or professional.
It is of the utmost importance that women are allowed to make these choices without pressure or the approval of others. While straight, smooth hair may be the norm, every woman should be able to be comfortable with her own hair texture, first and foremost.
While acceptance of natural hair texture is a wonderful thing, not every woman wants to flaunt what she has naturally. Women with every hair type still assume the risks inherent with wearing lace front wigs, and there are some ways to reduce the damage that can be caused.
Choose materials that will not cause allergic reactions and irritation. If you have a sensitive scalp or allergies, avoid wigs made with fillers such as animal hair and synthetic hair.
Avoid applying glue in your hair. Use adhesives below your hairline or cover your hairline with a wig cap and apply Got2b glued gel as adhesive. You can also use Got2b glued freeze spray inside the base to seal your knots.
Wear wig behind your hairline and avoid wearing glue if possible. Attach elastic straps inside the wig cap - near your temples to hold wig on the head or use mini bobby pins. If possible, cornrow hair and sew (tack) wig along the perimeter where your hair is healthiest. It’s best to add a little hair extension in the cornrow to protect hair from the thread.
Refrain from excessive use. In order to minimize the effects of glues and adhesives, limit the use of your lace front wig. Condition your hair underneath with sulfur-free products. Use leave-in conditioning products while preparing your hair - before applying wigs. This should be done no less than every 2-3 weeks. Wear a glue-less lace wig and avoid glue altogether and everything will go into place.
