|Putting a wig on a wig block for washing and styling|
It is very important to always put the wig on a wig block before doing any thing to it.
So I have put together a little step-by-step guide to guide you through it.
The things you will need is:
A pair of pliers
A strip of Chamonix soft leather
and some wig nails
The first thing you should do is to find a wig block that matches the head which is going to wear the wig. You have to look at both size and shape.
Make sure that the wig fits snugly.
Using the strip of Chamonix you start nailing down the front lace. The strip protects the lace from being torn.
You should fold the ends of the nails down into the wig block so you won't hurt yourself handling the block.
Follow the front lace all around to the ears.
if you don't use a Chamonix accidents might happen and your lace will be ruined like on this picture.
Now the front is done and it is time to go back to the neck nail it down.
Lift up all the hair and put some clips in to hold it in place.
Start on both corners of the neck and make sure it's tight.
Fill in with as many extra nails as you need to keep the neck lace down
This is what it should look like when it's done.
Comb the wig with the brush.
it will lose some hair, this is perfectly normal and won't affect the wig very much.
if the wig overtime loses too much hair it is possible to send it to me and add more hair again
Now it's all done, you're ready to move on to washing the wig or styling it.
