Detangle your hair with a brush
Before you sleep in your lace front wig, you need to brush it thoroughly to remove tangles. There are various types of brushes that you can use to achieve your desired results. Moreover, brushing your hair can prevent it from becoming tangled or developing knots which can make brushing the hair more difficult later on.
Apply moisturizer or styling lotion into your wig; Wrap your head
Whether your wig is human hair or synthetic, it’ll be damaged by too much friction. Friction can deteriorate the fibers and cause a loss of hair over time. It also leads to tangles, frizz, and dryness, all of which are a pain.
To protect your wig from friction, lay the hair flat against your head and pin or tie it into place. Then, wrap your head in a silk or satin scarf. This will keep your unit in place while also protecting it from friction. Make sure that every inch of your hair is tucked in; and cover all your hair wig with a nightcap, specifically a silk cap because silk is smooth and body-friendly. Finally sleep on a satin pillowcase with hapiness.
In the next morning, ntie your head wrap and style the wig. Depending on the type of fiber or hair that the wig is made from, you may use heated styling tools.
