2.How To Choose Cap Tape?
Double weft: These types of wigs are made by stitching together hair strands by using a hair sewing machine. This is a regular weft.
Single weft: It is also called as a light weft or a thin weft. This is relatively new.
Front lace wigs are exactly what they sound like. They have the lace only in the front of the unit. The rest has a thicker cap, the cap may have clips sewn to it to help hold the wig on the clients head.
Full lace units come with different specifications. They are lace, but they have urethane strips of adhesives to stick to. You can use lace tapes directly on the lace it’s self without the tape shining through the unit.
3.How To Measure The Human Hair Wig Length?
The hair length should be from the head top to the hair bottom as the hair is straight. The curly and wavy wigs are processed from straight wigs, so in the same length, curly and wavy wigs will be shorter by 1-2 inches (it depends on how deep the curl is) than straight wigs.
4.How To Determine Your Wig Size?
Once you have decided on your hair type, hair length and hair color, it is time to choose the size of a wig. Whether you buy your wig in person or online, you will need to know the size of your head.Here is the measuring guide:
Take a cloth measuring tape and wrap it around your head. It should start in the middle of your forehead, go down to the base of the skull where the wig will end, and then wrap back up to meet the start of the tape on the forehead.
Make sure as you wrap the tape around your head, that you keep the tape above your ears.
Front to Nape:
Measure from hairline at center of forehead straight back over crown to center of hairline at nape of the neck.
Ear to Ear across forehead:
At front of the ear, measure from hairline at base of sideburn, up across the hair line along forehead to the same point in front of another ear.
Ear to Ear over top:
Measure from hairline directly above the ear across top of head to the hairline directly above the other ear.
Temple to Temple around back:
From temple to temple across the back of the head.
Nape of Neck:
Measure the width of hairline across the nape of the neck.
For all wig types, air drying is highly recommended after a wash and conditioning.
Remember to wash at least once in 2-3 weeks.
Avoid using any other styling products between washes and avoid heavy oils like pink lotion, they tend to seep into the hair and tend to weigh it down resulting in restricted movement and potential tangling!
Use alcohol free serums. The hair won’t dry out and make it frizzy.
