Lace wigs have been our protective style savior for years. They've been the solution to our blending problems. They allow us to go from straight to wavy and back to natural without damaging our hairs. And they protect our precious edges, allowing our hair to take a break from tension-heavy styling. Whether you are a bit too rough removing your wig at the end of the night, or whether you don’t store it properly, tears and tangles can happen in any wig - especially a lace front. But there is no need to fret. Fixing a lace front may not seem like the simplest of tasks, but it is easier than you may think and can be done from the comfort of your own home.

 

Choice 1: Use “Tape Method” To Repair Your Lace Front Wigs


1.1 First, what do you need?


Your ripped lace wig
Styrofoam wig head
Knot Sealer
Acetone (Nail polish remover)
T-pins
Lace front tape
3M Transpore tape (same width as the lace front tape)


1.2 Second, how do you do this?


Step 1
Spritz the hair using a little water and comb it through.


Step 2
Turn your lace wig inside out so that the lace is facing you and you can clearly see the area you need to repair.


Step 3
Clean the area that’s been ripped with acetone.


Step 4
Using T-pins, pin the edges of the tear together so that the ripped edges are touching.


Step 5
Use lace front tape to cover the torn area. Press down firmly with your fingers to ensure the tape has attached to the lace, then carefully trim off the excess.


Step 6
Cover the tape using a sheet of 3M Transpore tape of the identical size (cut it if you need to) to reinforce the region and keep it from sticking to your scalp.

 

Choice 2: Use “Stitch Method” To Fix Your 360 Lace Front Wig

 

2.1 First, what do you need?

 

Your ripped lace wig
Styrofoam wig head
Knot Sealer
Acetone (Nail polish remover)
T-pins
Needle
Clear Thread


2.2 Second, how do you do this?


Step 1
Spritz the hair using a little water and comb it through.


Step 2
Turn your lace wig inside out so that the lace is facing you and you can clearly see the area you need to repair.


Step 3
Clean the area that’s been ripped with acetone.


Step 4
Using T-pins, pin the edges of the tear together so that the ripped edges are touching.


Step 5
Locate a sturdy thread that matches the color of your lace. You may also use a clear thread. Many women find that if you thread the needle and tie the ends together, the thread ends up being much more reinforced.


Step 6
Begin stitching with a straightforward overcast stitch. Keep your stitches small and near the tear so that your comb or brush will not get caught on the thread afterward. As soon as you’ve stitched the complete tear, double knot the ribbon and cut off the excess.

 

Once you decide on the method you wish to use, fixing your lace front wig is actually easier than you could have possibly imagined. However, the easiest way to fix your wig is to not have to fix it at all. Things to remember if you are an all-time wig wearer is care. Be sure you are still washing and maintaining the upkeep of your wig cleaning and conditioning as well as having a proper place to store your wig that can ensure that your wig will last longer than a few wears.
