this is a post i did b/c of too much product build up and its helpful for your natural hair to be able to hold moisture while wearing these units.. so:
 
there are many clarifying shampoo's on the market in the drugs store i even think suave has one that's very inexpensive.. with the ACV i use it straight on my natural hair, my momma use to use it as a rise when i was growing up... some dilute it with water.. i use 1/2 cup and pour it on massage it in and rise it out, and the secret is to rise it with cool water b/c it seals the cuticles...no shampooing afterwards.. 
 
the ACV is really deeper than you think for your own hair care, b/c it restores the porosity which is the measure of the hair's ability to absorb moisture...this is determined by the condition of the hair's cuticle layer (the overlapping scales of the hair shaft), and is rated as low, normal, and high. In normal, healthy hair, the cuticle is compact and inhibits the penetration of the hair shaft by moisture both moisture going in, and moisture coming out...when the cuticle is overly compact and prevents the penetration of the hair by moisture it has low porosity..to determine the porosity of your hair, simply feel it both when wet and when dry...if the hair feels straw like and rough when dry, or if it feels gummy or slightly rubbery when wet, then you probably have a problem with overly porous hair... if your hair is taking days to airdry. then your hair is good...No...it's Great, that means it's in really good condition....think of a sponge with holes in it...these holes would be called pores..when the sponge is fresh and new, it is able to absorb a good amount of water and hold the moisture inside very well..as the sponge ages, the pores (holes) become distorted, widen, and lose shape...these changes make the sponge super absorbent, yet less able hold the moisture it once could...the older sponge is said to be more porous or have greater porosity than the new sponge..

 

porous means that your your cuticles are raised, allowing more product to enter...cuticles raised is a bad thing, it makes your hair tangly, it makes your hair frizzy.. and it makes your hair act badly..hair mats up like dog fur when it's like this...what I read is that your hair's PH balance is out of wack, i think your hair becoming more acid, therefore raising the cuticle. Porosity control by Roux is a Ph balancing conditioner.... so anyone at any point can use it if their hair's Ph goes off, just by using daily styling products...even shampoo will throw your hair's Ph off...anyway...if your hair holds water, and dries evenly hours later, your hair is in great condition...my hair is now soaking up water and holding it like a sponge and that's what we really need wearing these units for weeks at a time.. i use porosity control conditioner by roux and they have a shampoo as well you can find at the BSS... you could use these products on both the unit and your natural hair.. after my AVC rise i use the porosity control conditioner so i dont' smell like vinger..lol we need to be able to keep our hair and the units hair moist, for our natural hair the only way to obtain length and stop breakage is by being able to keep our hair moist so its very important...

Buying LF Wigs Online


Thank you for taking the time to read our guide. We hope that we can provide you with tips on purchasing the best lace front wig and help you avoid disappointments, scams and costly mistakes.

The 10 Commandments to Follow When Buying Lace Front Wigs Online

  1. Thou shall find out how long the seller has been in business and if they do indeed make or order their wigs elsewhere. Many sellers purchase their wigs overseas from mass produced shops. They gather your measurements and then ship them off to the foreign shops to be created. This can be a bit risky since most foreign suppliers focus on quantity and not quality which could result in a poorly made unit that only last for a few weeks to a month. Also if there is a mistake with your custom unit then the wig will have to be sent back for repairs which will take even longer. Make sure you know what your sellers policies are in the event that your wig comes back with defects or errors.
  2. Thou shall ask the seller for references Many lace front sellers keep a compiled list of references for potential customers interested in purchasing a unit but would like to contact past customers first. Ebay feedback is great for viewing customers remarks about the sellers wigs.
  3. Thou shall be leary of 0 and private feedbacks.  Zero feedback doesn't mean that the seller is not legit. To be on the safe side request references or ask if they have any sample photos of their actual work. A lot of sellers use private feedbacks which means no one can view what is being said about their items. This is a red flag for most when ordering such a personal, costly item.
  4. Thou shall do your own research. Make sure that you are fully educated on lace front wigs before making the decision to purchase one.  Talk with others who wear & sell lace front wigs.Applying a lace front wig is an art within itself so get educated on the pros and cons of these wigs.
  5. Thou shall ask thyself if the price is reasonable A decent price for a lace front is hard to determine since people value their products at different levels. If the seller makes their own lace fronts and does not order wholesale then the price will be higher usually ranging from $500-$1,000 depending on length. It takes 40-60 hours for highly experienced wig makers to create a full hand-tied wig. Find out what others are paying for their wigs and the quality of the wig.
  6. Thou shall  request photos of the actual wig or photos of the sellers work Don't settle for celebrity photos on stock units. Matter of fact, don't settle for celebrity photos at all, not unless they are being used to compare their actual wig against a celebrities to show similarities. Reputable sellers do not use copyrighted celebrity photos to solely endorse their product. 1.) The celebrity in the photo may not even be wearing a lace front 2.) If they are, it is theft and misrepresentation of someone elses work and not that of the seller (unless noted that  it is indeed their work)  If you want to view the wig from a different angle ask the seller for a photo of the wig from that angle. Don't be hesitant to request the pictures you will need in order to make a decision to purchase. Most sellers will be more than happy to accomodate your wishes.
  7. Thou shall be sure the seller will offer after-purchase customer service. Customer service is big when purchasing a lace front wig. You may need help after you recieve your wig. Be sure to order from a seller that will offer you after service support and responds fast and professionally to all your request.
  8. Thou shall know the sellers policy. Be sure to read the entire ebay listing and make yourself familiar with their return policy and the way unsatisfactory is handled. If you are not confident the wig will fit, either ask for assistance on measuring your head or don't purchase the unit. Most sellers do not offer a refund which means you may get stuck with a unit that doesn't fit.
  9. Thou shall make sure the lace front wig comes with a guide Any product should come with a guide of use and care. Lace front wigs are no exception. Make sure that your wig comes with a guide that tells you how to apply, remove and take basic care of your unit.
  10. Thou shall remember the signs of danger. Be leary of sellers who do not respond to messages, stress immediate payment over and over again in their listing, does not have photos of their actual products or uses photos stolen from other sellers, has private, negative and or 0 feedback, does not offer after-purchase customer service, use celebrity photos to solely sell their products, has unorganized unprofessional listings, constantly uses 1 day listings. Also check the sellers completed listing in search of self-bidding.

These are just a few basic things to consider when purchasing a lace front wig online.  If a seller has a few of these signs it doesn't mean that they are automatically a bad seller or scammer. Every seller has a way that they do business so what it comes down to is your personal choice. Do your research & choose a seller that you feel comfortable with.

Happy Lace Front Buying!!
