Full lace wigs are wigs that are constructed with a full lace cap that covers the entire head and is made from a fine, sheer material that allows for a natural-looking hairline. Unlike traditional wigs that have a rigid cap, full lace wigs have a cap that can be adjusted to fit the wearer's head perfectly. The cap is made from a stretchy material that conforms to the shape of the head, providing a secure and comfortable fit. Full lace wigs can also be styled in a variety of ways, including updos and braids, which makes them a popular choice for special occasions.
Full lace wigs' natural appearance is one of their main advantages. The cap's delicate, sheer material replicates the appearance of a real scalp, making it difficult to identify the wearer as a wig user. Furthermore individually hand-tied hair produces a more realistic and natural-looking hairline on full lace wigs.
Full lace wigs allow wearers to experiment with various appearances without committing to a long-term change because they are available in a number of lengths, styles, and colors. Both synthetic and human hair can be used to make them, with human hair wigs being the most pricey choice but providing the most realistic appearance and feel.
Bleaching a full lace wig requires care and attention to avoid damaging the hair fibers and the lace. Here are the steps to safely bleach a full lace wig:
Prepare the wig: Detangle the wig using a wide-tooth comb and brush out any knots or tangles. Protect the hair by applying a small amount of oil or conditioner to the ends and lengths of the hair.
Mix the bleach: Mix the bleach powder and developer according to the instructions on the packaging. It's recommended to use a 20-volume developer for human hair wigs and a 10-volume developer for synthetic hair wigs.
Apply the bleach: Use a brush to apply the bleach mixture to the hair strands, starting from the ends and working your way up towards the roots. Avoid getting the bleach on the lace as it can cause it to become brittle and break.
Monitor the progress: Check the hair every 10-15 minutes to see how much the hair has lightened. Do not leave the bleach on for too long as it can damage the hair fibers and cause breakage.
Rinse and condition: Once the hair has reached the desired level of lightness, rinse the hair with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Apply a deep conditioner or mask to the hair to restore moisture and prevent damage.
Style the wig: After the wig is dry, you can style it as desired using heat styling tools or products.
It's important to note that bleaching a full lace wig can cause damage to the hair fibers and the lace if not done properly. It's recommended to seek the help of a professional stylist or wig expert if you're unsure about how to bleach a wig. Additionally, avoid bleaching synthetic hair wigs as they can become irreparably damaged.
