How long can you wear a 13x6 lace frontal wig?
A 13x6 lace frontal can last up to or more than six months. A lace front can last a good period of time if it is being taken care of. If the hair is not being taken care of properly the hair will not last long and it probably won't be able to be worn again. You must brush the hair, use proper products, wrap the hair up, and wash the hair.
Brushing the hair gently from the end of the hair and working your up to the top of the hair near the lace is the proper way to brush the hair. Make sure you are also holding the root to ensure less tugging of the hair.
Using the proper products makes a big difference, when maintaining a lace frontal. When you are using products that have a high alcohol content that will result in hair tangling and damage to the hair. The best product for us will be a product that is a pH acidic product.
Wrapping the hair up before going to bed. Wrapping the hair avoids breakage and tangling of the hair. Before you go to bed make sure the hair is dry, brush it properly, and use a silk or satin cap/scarf to wrap the hair. Doing this every night will allow for the hair to last longer because it helps the hair from getting tangles and breakage.
Washing the hair every one to two weeks. Before washing the hair, come through the tangles with a wide tooth comb, brush or your fingers. Remember to start from the bottom and work your way up. Rinse the hair, wet the hair real good. Shampoo the hair. Then condition the hair. Lastly, dry the hair. When drying the hair make sure you are using a towel and then letting the hair air dry. Going to bed with the hair wet will lead to tangles and a musty smell and we do not want that.
