Care Tips

At TrinityLacewigs.Com (TLC), we provide detailed instructions for applying your new lace wig unit, at purchase. However, if you are unsure about applying it yourself for any reason, we suggest you consult a licensed professional for application. Please remember these simple suggestions for maintaining your new lace wig unit for optimal performance and long lasting wear.

First 24 Hours of Application:
  • Make sure you allow enough time for the adhesive to fully dry.
  • Please choose a style that will not pull, tug, or cause stress around the perimeter of your hair. We suggest choosing a very simple style that enables you to tie your hair up for the adhesive to seal properly.
  • It is imperative that you tie your hair with a wrap cap or scarf the first night; this ensures the adhesive will properly adhere to you and your unit.
  • We do not recommend for any reason to apply heat, i.e. pressing comb, flat or Marcel iron around the perimeter of your unit. The adhesive needs at least 12 hours to adhere and dry properly.
  • Initially, you may have a glossy finish around the perimeter where the adhesive was applied; this only lasts for 2-3 days until it dries to a matte finish.
Bed-Time Maintenance:
  • Before retiring to bed, please remember to care for your lace wig unit. For straight or body waves, simply wrap your hair flat and sleep with a silk or satin scarf or bonnet. We recommend for curly hair past 12 inches in length to plait hair in two large braids for easier maintenance before sleeping under a satin cap or silk scarf.
  • In order to minimize pulling at the hairline, always wrap the perimeter of your hairline.
  • For years, silk and satin pillow cases have been known to promote healthier hair versus the drying nature of cotton fiber pillow cases which can be detrimental to your hair. Remember, what can negatively affect your natural hair will affect your lace wig unit too.

Tips for Shampooing:
  • Before shampooing your lace wig unit, please remember to section and detangle hair with a wide tooth comb.
  • Use lukewarm water. Never use water that is too hot or too cold.
  • Spray roots with shampoo solution and work down length of hair.
  • Solution to cleanse hair and scalp should be composed of shampoo and water (equal parts of both).
  • Be careful when shampooing your lace wig unit. DO NOT rub or tug on hair; take extra precautions at the hairline.
  • We do not recommend weekly shampooing of your new unit, on average we suggest every 2 weeks using the method outlined above.
  • REMEMBER, do not shampoo or wet hair for at least 24 hours after having applied your lace wig unit.
  • Always dry hair on a low setting; whether you are using a hand held or hooded dryer.
  • When applying heat, it is recommended to use a protective product; i.e.: leave-in conditioner, serum or heat protector in order to avoid heat damage.
  • Before drying curly hair, blot it with a towel. Excess water can weigh down the hair. While drying, use a diffuser to retain curl pattern. Do not under any circumstances roller brush your lace wig unit; it can cause hairs to be pulled out from the lace.
  • Preferably, let hair air dry.
