More On Belle Tress Wigs
Belle Tress Monofilament wigs
Belle Tress monofilament wigs are constructed using a thin, breathable nylon or polyester mesh material at the base that takes on the natural scalp color of the wearer. Monofilament wigs offer the most natural look. Most monofilament wigs are hand tied individually (hair by hair) to the base. This allows the hair to swivel at the base, making the wig easy to style in many different looks. This feature allows you to part the wig or brush in any direction. Monofilament wigs should be the first choice for those with sensitive skin, and for those with severe to total hair loss.
Washing and caring for Belle Tress monofilament wigs:
To ensure the longevity of your monofilament wigs please follow the guidelines listed below.
When washing hand tied, monofilament or pull-through hairpieces, make sure to always wash and rinse with the base *top side up.
Do not swish the wigs back and forth in the water, as this might cause the knots holding the fibers at the base to push through the other side of the wig.
Remember to always let the water run downward from base to ends of the wigs. Using a styling block can make this step much easier.
When using a styling block, use a thin straight pin on the base or monofilament sections. Never use T-pins, T-pins can leave a permanent hole in these delicate material.
Belle Tress Lace Front Wigs
Belle Tress lace front wigs are made with a fine mesh lace material. Front lace wigs features this material from ear to ear across the hairline. Full lace wigs features the lace material all around the wig and require the lace to be cut all around the wig.
Advantages of Belle Tress lace front wigs:
-When you receive your wig, it will have a long lace enough to cover your face. This will require you to cut some of this material. Make sure to cut along the front of the wig. The goal here is to create a new hairline. DO NOT cut off all of the lace material, you'll be applying adhesives to the lace material.
-You will notice once you put on a lace wig that it appears that it is growing directly from your head.
Washing and caring for a lace front wigs:
-Belle Tress recommends that you wash the wig at least once a week using medium or cool water only.
-Place the wig on a mannequin head, spray with water from the ends to the roots.
-Using a wide tooth comb, comb the wig in the same manner (ends to roots) making sure there are no tangles.
-Place the wig in warm water for 5 minutes. Do not leave in water too long, this will cause the hair to tangle easily.
-Wash it gently using special shampoo and conditioner made for wigs. DO NOT rub it. Make sure to rinse the wig thoroughly in cool water.
-Place the Belle Tress wig on a blockhead or a mannequin (this will keep your wig in original shape) and blot dry using a towel (DO NOT SCRUB). Allow your wig to air dry overnight.
-When the wig is nearly dry, comb through it using your fingers to separate the hair strands.
