Maintaining Your 13x6 HD Lace Frontals: Tips and Tricks

No matter how great your 13x6 HD lace frontal looks, you can’t keep it forever.

Today, we will discuss how to get the most out of your frontal.

Because ladies, we know these are not cheap despite the amazing prices at Private Label (sorry, I had to!).

You should take it off for proper cleaning and maintenance.

Properly storing your lace frontal is also a key part of maintaining it to ensure its longevity. Here are some of the basics as to what we will cover today in our lace frontal care guide. If you’re storing your lace frontal for a long time, you should wash it before you do so.

Deep-clean your lace frontal with a clarifying shampoo to ensure there is no product buildup left in the hair from all the heat protectant, mousse, hair wax, or oils you used on it if you styled it. After shampooing, deep condition with a hydrating conditioner and rinse it off well.

Let your 13x6 HD lace frontal either air dry or dry them on the cool setting using your hair dryer.

Show Your 13x6 HD Lace Frontals as Much Love as You Show Your Natural Hair

Since the 13x6 lace frontals by Private Label are made of 100% human hair, you should treat them with the same love and care as your natural hair.

Now that you have installed your 13x6 frontal we want to make sure you are taking proper care of it.

This means being mindful of cleanliness and not letting any oil or product buildup stay on for too long, washing them properly, hydrating them with conditioners, not using hot water to wash them, not using too much heat, and always using a heat protectant before you style them.

I don’t want to see some video on TikTok about how our frontals suck when you didn’t take care of it. Deal?

To prevent breakage or damage, you should always be careful when brushing or detangling them and not pull and tug too harshly. Using a detangling spray to get all the tangles out and hydrate the hair is helpful. Just like you would brush your natural hair from the bottom and move up, you should do the same with your lace frontals.

This helps prevent breakage and excessive hair fall.

Let’s get into these frontal care tips!

Use a Hydrating Hair Mask

Just like you deep condition and hydrate your natural hair, your lace frontals can also benefit from a little extra TLC.

You can use a hydrating hair mask every two weeks to nourish, hydrate, and bring back the shine to the 100% human hair lace frontals.

This will moisturize the hair on the lace frontal and make it smoother, softer, and easier to manage.

Wash The Frontal Weekly

You do not need to wash your lace frontals daily, but you must wash them weekly.

Shampoo and condition them once a week, using a sulfate-free shampoo and a hydrating conditioner. Avoid washing them in hot water; use lukewarm instead.

Make sure to use a lace glue remover to take your frontal off safely. Once you have the frontal in hand, use a lace glue cleaner to remove all excess glue and buildup.

This is key for the reapplication of your frontal.

Brush Your Frontal Daily

Brushing your lace frontals daily ensures the hair stays detangled and does not form knots.

Use a wide-toothed comb or a boar bristle brush. Be careful not to pull and tug too much, and use a detangling spray when necessary.

Please remember that a frontal lace is constructed by tiny knots of hair connected to the HD lace.

We all know HD lace is delicate, so be gentle!

Avoid Applying Excessive Heat

Just like you should avoid using any excessive heat styling tools on your natural hair, you should also be mindful of using excessive heat on your 100% human hair lace frontals and other hair pieces.

Just because Private Label’s professional titanium flat iron can heat up to 480 degrees doesn’t mean you should use so much heat.

Play nice!

Since lace frontals are not attached to your scalp, they do not receive the nutrients that your natural hair does to help nourish and repair it.

So, it is best to keep them in good health by avoiding excessive heat usage. If you want to use heat tools to style your lace frontals, apply a heat protectant spray first.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Avoid exposing your lace frontals to harsh chemicals like chlorine if you go swimming or bleach.

These chemicals can damage the hair fibers, causing them to get dry, brittle, and fall out.

Consider boho braids with bulk human hair if you will be pool hopping this summer.

Store Them Properly

Storage is equally important in maintaining and caring for your lace frontals.

After taking them off, don’t just toss them somewhere; instead, lay them flat in a storage box with enough space or a mannequin head to maintain their shape.

Store your lace frontal in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and let enough airflow in.

Be Gentle With Your Frontal, Please!

Remember always to be gentle when handling your lace frontals.

Always brush the ends to roots and NOT roots to ends.

This helps prevent breakage and thinning and reduces the risk of even more tangles. Always use a wide-toothed comb to brush out your lace frontals.

If you take care and stay gentle when detangling your lace frontals, hair bundles, and other hair pieces, they will maintain their quality, shape, and longevity for longer.

Get the Most our of your 13x6 Frontal

To ensure a longer life span and longevity of your 13x6 HD lace frontals, you need to treat them like your own hair since they are made out of 100% human hair.

Unlike synthetic lace frontals, which cannot tolerate that much heat before melting off, these 100% human hair lace frontals can tolerate styling using heat tools, but that does not mean you go overboard with it.

Always try to use excessive heat styling, and when it is totally unavoidable, just use good quality heat protectant spray and follow up with a deep conditioner to bring the hydrating back when you wash it, and then use a nourishing hair mask every two weeks.

Moreover, make sure to clean your lace frontals well weekly to avoid product build-up, and be gentle when handling them to prevent breakage.
