How To Wash a 6x6 Lace Closure

Before washing your 6x6 lace closures, brush them properly to remove all the tangles. Use a wide-toothed comb to brush tangles and knots out, and be mindful of not yanking the hair too hard to prevent breakage and hair fall.

Once you are done detangling your lace closure, wash it with a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo in a sink filled with cool water.

Gently swish the lace closure around to clean it and avoid scrubbing or rubbing it. Rinse off the shampoo thoroughly and follow up with a hydrating conditioner to lock the moisture in.

Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes, and then rinse again. To dry the lace closure, gently pat it with a microfiber towel to remove the excess water.

Avoid wringing out the hair or twisting it. Wet hair is more prone to breakage, so be gentle. Lay it flat to air dry, or dry it using the relaxed setting on your hair dryer.

Avoid using any excessive heat to dry your lace closure. Remember to do this step every 6-8 weeks or even weekly if you sweat more or use many styling products to avoid any product buildup.

How to Style a 6x6 Lace Closure

We all want glam hair, and styling is necessary for that! Avoid excessive heat styling as best as you can.

But if you absolutely cannot, ALWAYS use a heat protectant to protect your lace closure and prevent damage.

Use low heat settings, and be careful not to pull or tug on the hair too harshly. When styling your hair, use a wig brush or a wide-toothed comb to brush and detangle your hair gently.

Start from the ends and work to the roots to prevent pulling and breakage. Use wig-friendly styling products for hair extensions, lace closures, and wigs.

Avoid using too many products, which can cause product buildup and make your wig look oily and weighed down.

How to Store Your 6x6 Lace Closure

When you’re not using your lace closure wig, you can store it on a wig stand or a mannequin head to maintain its shape.

If you don’t have either, placing it down flat will work, too. Do not store your wig in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, as this can damage the hair fibers and shorten the longevity of your 6x6 lace closures.

Even when not using your lace closure, brush them out every few days, gently detangle the hair, and ensure it maintains its shape.

Sleeping With Your Lace Closures On

Avoid sleeping with your hair open when you have your lace closure on, as this can cause it to get tangled and knotted.

Pack and wrap it well to avoid a mess. Please ensure the hair is dry, wrap it around a wig cake, and put it inside a satin scarf or sleeping cap to help avoid the hair getting snagged and to stay smooth.

Wearing a protective silk bonnet or scarf will help ensure no entanglement or damage to the lace closure.

Minimize The Usage of Harsh Chemicals

Minimize your 6x6 lace closure’s exposure to harsh chemicals, chlorine, or salt water, as this can damage the hair fibers.

Do not go swimming in your lace closures; expose it to the swimming pool’s chlorinated water or the salt water at the beach. This will shorten your lace closure’s life span.

Handle Your Closure With Care

Avoid snagging, pulling, yanking, or tugging on the lace closure hair when brushing or styling it, as this can cause the hair to fall off, break, or become damaged.

Get It Professionally Cleaned

If you feel like no matter how much you clean your lace closure, you cannot get rid of the product buildup and the greasiness, take it for deep cleaning to a professional hair stylist who is well-versed in handling wigs, lace closures, and hair extensions.
