How to make a lace front wig look real

Create time:2018-07-23 05:33 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Lace front wigs are the kind of wigs that look like they are growing from your scalp allowing you to part the hair. In case you are wondering how to make your wig look natural, we can give you some quick and easy tips to help you along the way. Here are some general tips we want to share with anyone who is trying to learn how to make your lace front wig look natural.


1.A common mistake that people make is that they place the wig too far up on their head which shrinks their forehead and makes it look unnatural. So first, you should place the wig near your natural hairline.

2.We all have baby hair around the edges and shorter hairs in the front that fades into your longer hair. The main concern about lace front wigs is that often times the hair line looks very square. To make your wig look more natural, baby hairs are the things you want to re-create on the wig.

3.After you thin out the hairline you will still notice that the hairline has a very square look.  So once again you want to imitate your hairline and use tweezers to pluck the straightness from the edges, thus mimicking a more natural hairline.

Tips about how to deal with the baby hair:

1.Some wigs come with baby hair. If not, you can make your own by razoring the hair in the front to make them shorter. 

2.Combing a small amount of your own hair or edges forward and then putting on the wig can help your wig look more realistic. Make sure to blend the edges and the wig. 

3.Some elements in a wig may look really fake by being too narrow. Some wigs, for some reason, have a very short part. To make your part look more realistic, use tweezers to pluck around the part to widen it. 


As you can see, baby hair is the key to the natural hairline and natural look. That's why lace front wigs with baby hair are so hot now. It makes it easier for a wig to look real. Tell us how you make your wigs look real in the comments section and share your good ideas with girls who love lace front wigs as much as you do.


If you still don't know how to make a wig look real, you should find some videos on YouTube, or if you have any questions about our wigs, please feel free to leave your message. We will respond to you at the first available moment.

  • 8 tips and tricks of curly wigs care: No more FRIZZ

    Create time:2018-02-28 02:31 | LEAVE A COMMENT

    Recently, I received several messages asking me how to care curly human hair wigs/closures/weaves,etc.. so today, I'll share some of my tips and tricks of hair care.

    QQ截图20180228152134.jpg

    Let's get to my first one..


    1.The  right temperature of water that you use for washing your wig can be very important. 

    After you shampoo your wig, you should use warm water, as this is going to help to open the hair cuticle (yes, wigs still have much cuticle if they're in high quality)allowing your shampoo to do its job to cleanse your wig properly.

    Continue to use warm water when you go to condition your wig but you will rinse the conditioner by using cold water. This is going to help to close the hair cuticle and allow the moisture to be retained that’s why it helps prevent frizz.

    2.Do not rub your wig in your towel. 

    You can wrap your wig in a microfiber towel or an old cotton t-shirt to help create less friction and frizz for your wig.

    3.Applying some hair oils definitely would benefit your wig.

    4.Do not brush your wig when it's wet.

    You can try to brush your wig before you wash it, or you can detangle the hair with your fingers in the water. 

    5.A Good combo of hair shampoo and conditioner matters.

    Never use a shampoo and a conditioner which the first ingredient is alcohol because the alcohol could dry the hair and cause the hair become frizz.

    6.Try not to apply heat on your wig frequently.

    If you apply heat on your favorite wig very often , the high temperature would damage the cuticle to lead your wig becomes frizz.

    7.Put your wig on a wig stand if you’re not using it.

    Please remember to brush your wig before you put it on the stand.

    8.The last one is to tell all my dearest ChocQueen, please care your ChocHair as much as you care your own hair. The wigs have life, believe me.


    Hope the tips and tricks could help you. If you have any ideas, questions or even better way/tips of wigs care, please comment blow and let us know.

    Hope you all have a lovely day!

  • Beginner Friendly- what can I do to make my lace closure wig a bit tighter: How to Tighten A Wig

    Create time:2018-02-10 01:48 | LEAVE A COMMENT

    Today, let’s talk about a problem that women who ever wear wigs usually meet. When you buy yourself a wig and the joke is the wig is too big for you. You might start trying to fix it, but the result could not be perfect - the cap is still big or too tight. 

    Here are two simple but pretty good ways you would love to try!


    Apply Elastic Band Method

    You can still achieve a realistic hairline by applying the elastic band method.

    Before you decide to using elastic band method, here is the list of tools that you will use:

    1.The elastic band (extra thick)

    2.Scissor

    3.Needle and thread

    4.Tape measure 

    Then, you can measure distance between your left and right ears. Cut the elastic band base on your head measurement. Here’s an example:

    1518244688217564.png

    Remember to leave your snug fit, so you can use the distance minus the snug fit to get your length of elastic.

    Next, you can place your new elastic band and make sure put it goes along the curve of the wig cap. Then using the needle and thread to sew the elastic band in. Sew the edges of the band to each side of your lace closure, don’t forget to make knots by using the thread to secure the elastic band. 

     (@TastePink, @UniWigs)

    Needle and thread Method

    If you don’t have elastic band, you can use your needle and thread to tighten your cap. 

    You are still going to use the same tool package as elastic band method, but in this method, using c needle would be better.

    First, you will find a spot that behind your left ear on your wig cap, sew it on and secure the one side at the spot. You can go secure each spot by sew the thread in twice to make it very security. Following the same step to sew the all the way around the edge of the cap till you get to the other side of a spot which should behind your right ear on the cap. Remember do not cut the thread off yet after you finish your last stitch. You will pull the thread to tighten your wig, you will kind of get it stretched all the way around. At this point, you could put your wig on to fix the tightness of the cap. Once you get your suitable tightness, you could take off the wig and secure the knot to finish the last stitch. That’s it! You’ve done your job!

    Here we go my ChocQueen! Hope you’ve leaned these two easy ways to tighten your wig cap. If you have any ideas, questions or even better way/tips of cap tighten, please comment blow and let us know.


    Hope you all have a lovely day!

  • How To Bleach Knots Properly?

    Create time:2018-02-07 20:40 | LEAVE A COMMENT

    Recently, we received several feedback and questions about bleaching knots on a lace wig, so today, we will talk about this, shall we?

    Some people tried to bleach the knots at home in order to make the hairline and handtied knot more natural; however, things are always going to the opposite way, the hair is messed up and became shedding. Why? Is this because my wig is in bad quality? Can I bleach my hair construction/ cap then? How do I do to reduce the harm to my hair if I bleach knots? Hope you can find your answers in this article .

    Firstly, you need to choose right products. Attention! Not every wigs can be bleached!

    If you purchase a natural black wig, here you go, you can bleach knots as you wish!

    If you purchase a wig that labeled that was bleached once and never be dyed before, yes, you could bleach knots a little.

    If your wig is labelled 1B#,2# and it is a dyed color one, we badly not recommend you bleach knots.

    Also, almost every dark color (except natural black) wig could not sustain re-bleached more than once. Outer layer of hair is covered by the hair dye, the hair dye cream like a protective layer to protect the inner layer hair. If we bleach the dyed hair, the protective layer would “have a fight” with the bleach liquid, and we can tell the hair would have the great damage and the wigs becomes shedding as the result of we're bleaching knots.

    After I choose a right wig, how do I bleach?

    Here're several key points and key steps that we usually follow from:

    Bleach Powder/Liquid 

    Developer (at the correct volume)

    Aluminum Foil

    Mixing Bowl

    Mixing Brush

    Your Closure/Frontal/Lace Wig

    Step 1

    Adjust either your lace wig, frontal or closure, pin it down to your forehead.

    *If your closures carry the baby hairs, it’s easily pin them down with clips.

    Step 2 

    Mix up bleach powder and professional developer in a mixing bowl by equal volume. Make sure to stir the mixture until there’re no lumps in the bowl and to get the moderate consistency. 

    Step 3

    Gently dab the bleach onto the lace by using your mixing brush. If you put too much pressure onto the lace with the brush, the bleach mixture will leak through from the cap and will bleach the hair. Be sure you apply enough bleach onto the lace to ensure you’re bleaching every single the knot. After you’re applying the bleach, cover the lace closure in the aluminum foil.

    Step 4

    Make sure you keep the bleach on until the knots turn into a honey blonde color, then rinse the bleach out. This is vital step because you want to wait until your wig becomes blonde, or you will have a brassy lace.

    Step 5

    Rinse the wig upside down quickly to avoid getting mixture onto the hair. After you rinse the bleach out, wash it with a neutralizing shampoo to prevent the chemical processing. Leave shampoo on the wig for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse out. Conditioning your wig to keep it from getting dried out afterwards.

    Here we go my ChocQueen! Do you find your answers or useful tips from this article? If you have any ideas, questions or even better way/tips of bleach knots please comment blow and let us know.

  • 12% OFF with Code “LOVE” - Happy Valentine's Day 2018!

    1517213230376322.jpg


    Not as much as you'd expect? You may say “only 12% OFF? Why?” 

    Let's get back to our first post named “Things You Don't Know About ChocHair” again:


    Why do we barely offer the big discount?

    Because we're TRUE to the price.


    The selection of raw hair material is very strict.

    To pursue the high quality wig products, ChocHair always purchase the 100% virgin remy human hair from the credible suppliers. Before ChocHiar decide to release the new arrivals (wigs, closures & weaves, hair bundle, etc..), our QC supervisors usually negotiate with more than 30 suppliers, through several layers of raw hair selection and examination, only two to three suppliers could be ChocHair’s reliant partners.


    The protection of workers’ rights is ChocHair’s key work as well.

    Every skilled manual worker is the most precious gift to ChocHair. They put their efforts and love to every wig/closure they made. To reach the High quality standard, each artisan usually spend 5-6 days to finish handmade part of one human hair wig.


    Of course, ChocHair has social responsibility to protect each hardworking artisan’s right. ChocHair offer the very good working environment and ensure they have weekend day off and national holidays, plus, they can get at least $8 per hours salary. 


    ChocHair care about every detail on the whole supply chain because ChocHair hope to offer the best quality products with the competitive price and provide the best service to each of our dearest customer! We truly hope the every dollar that you spend on our products is valuable and worthy.


    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Coupon code: Ariel20 (20% off)

    Shipping time: 3-5days!

    5.png

    This virgin hair I bleached is from ChocHair. I managed to get you guys 20% off of a bundle package. You can choose between the Brazilian straight and Brazilian body wave.

    How can you still not even considering buy this? The hair is top quality. I got no shedding before I bleached it the third time. It is still amazingly soft. It’s only three days! Keep running!

    If you are interested in how I accomplish this look, please keep reading.

    1. We start off with putting on gloves and a mask so that we don’t have to burn our skin or inhale all those strong fumes. 

    2. And then we mix the bleaching powder and do the weaving process. You will get the lighter area and darker area. It just makes the hair more random.

    3. I don’t take off the elastic from the bundles. It’s more easier. It’s a lazy method. I repeat this process over and over again. It takes a lot of patience, but it is worth. 

    4. While you are doing this, I do suggest combing through the bundles, otherwise the part in between are not even gonna be touched by the bleach. 

    6-1.png

    5. After I finished over the foiling part, I just continue to do that again to get closer to the knot.

    6. I washed it out with some shampoo and soaked for a long time. And I do the same thing on the closure. 

    7. I take out the package. It’s brown not blonde. So I have to go in again. This got it even lighter. After the second time, it got better, but not the color I really want. So I decided to go in with the blonde dye. 

    8. After I did this process, I put it in a huge plastic bag for an hour. And then I washed it. It’s exactly the color I want!

  • Things You Don't Know about ChocHair

    Create time:2018-01-04 04:24 | LEAVE A COMMENT

    As a new wig online shop, you must know a few things about ChocHair. Maybe you have done some research online, or have read the post named "about us" in our website, but that's not enough, only know we are "UniWigs" and we only offer high quality virgin remy human hair wigs and weaves for African American Women is not enough. From now on, we will share more with you guys in this place, also if you have any questions about us, feel free to leave messages below every post or just contact us by clicking "We are online - chat with us" button.


    Today let's start with some simple questions:

    1.Why special for African American Women? You may say that this is decided by the market, but we would say that it is decided by our customers' needs. UniWigs is really working hard to care about what our customers want and need. No matter what we do, we just want to help people, try hard to find good products for you. UniWigs is a gathering place for quality products. In order to offer better service, more sub-stations need to be created. That's why ChocHair is here.

    2. Why no big discount, such as, 40%, 50% even 60% OFF as other stores? This is the second thing we want to do for all of our customers. Good products is not enough, good products in the cheapest price is the best. Our original price is truly the best offer for 100% vigin remy human hair. We don't want to use the so called big discount stunt to deceive you, what we offer is the real "discount".

    3. What's hot in ChocHair, Wigs, Weaves or Closure? It's hard to say. So far, weaves and bundles are very hot, but trends change. Stay tuned, we will keep you in the front line.


    Any questions? Feel free to ask us.
