Wig caps, Front lace, Full lace….be it that you’re a veteran to the world of wig, or you’re new in the game, understanding these terminologies gets really confusing at times, but most importantly, you should know the right wigs to get for the desired look.

Most times, people think that the choices to make when selecting a hair extension ends with color and pattern, but it also has to do with selecting a lace front wig or a full lace wig.

Here are the difference between the lace front wigs and the full lace wigs:

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LACE FRONT WIGS AND FULL LACE WIGS

The major difference between the lace front wigs and the full lace wigs is the base.

The base of the full lace wig is made entirely of lace and every strand of the hair is tied with the hands to the base of the hair, giving it a natural finish. The full lace wigs cover the whole of your head, so it’s usually advisable to wear a wig cap with it whilst using.

The lace front wigs, on the other hand, are usually attached to the front of your head, along the hairline.

BENEFIT OF THE FULL LACE WIGS

NATURAL AND LIGHT FINISH

When you get hold of a full lace wig, the most noticeable fact is its light weight which is lighter than the lace front wig. Unlike the weft which is usually heavy and uncomfortable, the strands of the full lace wigs are usually applied to the base of your hair and can be worn for a very long time.

It is more comfy to wear a full lace wig due to its light weight and natural feeling. Although this advantage is also seen in the lace front wigs, this time it behaves like an actual hair, unlike the lace front wig which doesn’t.

VERSATILITY

The number one advantage of the full lace wig is its versatility. Every strand being hand-woven onto the base of the lace, which means you have the option of parting your hair the way you like.

The lace front wigs, on the other hand, restrict you to one look. Using the full lace wig, you can make your hair into braids, a ponytail or even switch up your parting. Trying these tricks with a lace front wig will end up revealing the track lines.

LACE FRONT WIGS

The benefit of the lace front wig is its affordability. You don’t have to spend a lot of time in making lace front wigs and this is because you don’t have to attach every strand of hair making its less stressful.

It’s easier and quicker to apply, whereas installing a full wig will take a lot of time as well as practice mostly if you a putting on a wig cap underneath. This is the main reason why most people go for the lace front wig.

The Best Way to Blend Clip-in Hair Extensions (with Thin Hair)

The Best Way to Blend Clip-in Hair Extensions (with Thin Hair)

If you have thin hair, perhaps the biggest question you have been asking yourself is whether you can wear clip-in extensions. I can identify with that longing that never goes away, the desire to try new looks. With thin hair being the least ideal canvas, one ends up sleeking back the hair and going about their everyday activities. Girls with thin hair deserve a chance to enjoy the versatility that comes with clip-ins too! Incorporating clip-in extensions would mean shaking hands with gorgeous hair and kissing thin, boring hair goodbye. However, for one to enjoy a seamless illusion, it is important that they follow the steps outlined below.

A Step by Step guide to seamlessly blending your clip-in hair extensions

  1. Go for the correct extension

Selecting an appropriate hair type goes a long way into disguising extensions as our natural hair. Choosing the ideal thickness also helps in having the extensions lie flat once installed. You are free to choose from thin, medium or thick types.

The texture of your clip-in extension helps in matching with the texture of your natural hair. since we will be trying to achieve styles that are suitable with our hair types, it is important to pay attention to the type of texture you go for.

  1. Establish the ideal zone

The perfect hiding spot will allow your natural hair to lie flat after installation. You might have to play around with your clip-in before finally getting the best spot. Since your hair is thin, you should avoid placing it on the highest point of your head.  To easily establish the ideal installation point, draw an imaginary line from the area behind your left ear to the right. You clip-in extensions should go to the area below this line.

  1. Installation of wefts

Do not apply your extensions too close to the roots, as this area experiences the most movement and it may be hard to conceal them. Do not force all the clips into your hair, as this counteracts the look you will be trying o achieve. Strategically place the wefts to avoid the embarrassment that comes with having to explain to people that it wasn’t your natural hair after all.

Thin hair means a lot of slippages. To counter this problem, you might need to create a solid base by lightly spraying some dry shampoo or hairspray. This helps in achieving a secure hold and leaves you worry free!

  1. Blend it in

To have an appealing finish, you’ll need to style the extension together with your natural hair. For example, when using a flat iron, wrap a section of hair that includes both your natural hair and extension. This leaves it flowing nicely and looking sleek.

It’s time to flaunt it!

Having thin hair no longer needs to worry you. Clip in extensions helps you switch up your look and enjoy the faux pas you have always longed for. You will now have endless ways to enjoy gorgeous looks with your newly added volume and length.
