Step 4: Lay the tracks down in a U- shape pattern as you work your way in creating the wig. The pattern will assist you in attaching the thread neatly onto the cap.

Step 5: After you sew the tracks all the way to the closure, the last track should be sewn on the closure. Cut off the excess track after properly securing it with a knot

How to care for a transparent lace wig?  

1. Avoid hair tangle 

Excessive friction can easily cause hair to knot, so it is best to take off the wig when sleeping or braid your human hair wig to prevent hair tangle. 

2. Correct hair comb 

Don’t comb your hair when your hair is wet. Wait until your hair is completely dry before combing hair. When combing the hair, start from the end of the hair to the roots. Do not use a comb with curly hair wigs, you can gently comb with your fingers. Body wave wigs can use a wide-toothed comb. 

3. Wash your wig regularly 

The cleaning of the human hair wig is a very important step. Regular cleaning of the wig will ensure that the moisture of your wig will not be lost. It is usually cleaned once a week, and you can adjust the time according to your own frequency of use.

4. Avoid high temperature 

Although a human hair wig can style it however it wants. But don’t use Flat-iron or curler too often, it will cause your hair wig to lack glossy, dry, and easy to break. And do not place your virgin hair wig close to high temperature. 

5. Dry your wig 

Do not blow the wig with a hairdryer, use a dry towel to dry excess water from the hair, and place it in a ventilated place to avoid damage to the hair caused by sun exposure 

6. Deep conditioner 

After you use Flat-iron or curler, need deep care for your hair, but remember not to use oily conditioner.
