Looking beautiful in your lace wig will only lead to outer beauty. While your hair will stay beautiful, your overall health must be maintained. Many women who are avid fitness enthusiasts are fearful of hair systems and other hair extensions because they do not know how to work out in it. As with every other occasion, a lace unit is the perfect fit. These are a few ways to stay fit and look great while doing it.
Before Working Out
There are a few things to do prior to working out in your hair system. Obviously, exercise promotes sweat and dirt buildup. These two things can cause breakouts and the drying of hair. Wearing a sweatband or silk cap is a good way to avoid sweat and dirt soaking into your lace wig hairline. If too much sweat and dirt begins to soak into the unit, it will be difficult to clean while still wearing and can cause breakouts.
To protect the ends of your human hair system from getting soaked in sweat and dirt, tie your hair into a ponytail or bun. This will be very simple for full lace units. If you have a front lace unit, strategically wear your cap or sweatband over the nape of the neck for coverage. By placing hair in a high ponytail or bun, you will also prevent tangling on synthetic hair systems.
After Working Out
When you are finished working out, your first instinct will be to wash your hair. Although you can wash your lace wig like your natural hair, there are a few things to avoid. You will want to wait to you get home to wash your hair. Many women wash their hair at their gym and then travel home. The exposure to air, dirt and possible bacteria can breed germs and mildew.
You should wait to you get home, take of your sweatband after you have stopped sweating, and then wash your hair. To dry, use a hooded dryer so that your unit dries completely in addition to the hair underneath. You will also want to cater to your ends on the lace wig. Combing your ends afterwards will prevent tangling on your hair system.
If you do not want to wash your hair fully, take a gentle soap for sensitive skin and apply around the edges of your hair. This will cleanse the natural oils that secrete near the glued on hairline of the lace wig. These oils break the bond of the adhesive and make your reapplying the unit more frequent.
When You Take Out Your Lace Wig
When you take off your hair system make sure that it is washed well. Leaving oils, dirt and sweat in human hair wigs will have the same effect as it does on your own hair. Sweat is very drying to all human hair and can cause damage. A simple water wash initially is a good idea to dilute all acidity from sweat. Afterward, properly washing and conditioning both the lace wig and your hair is required. You will want to deep condition your own hair as well.
Following these steps will keep your hair and body happy while working out in your hair system. The best advice is to follow the same steps for your human hair unit as you do on your own hair. For synthetic hair units, make sure to take extra care for tangling.
