HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD FOR A LF. these are just examples to get you started in the right direction for ordering your first lf..
 
 

CUSTOM FULL LACE MEASUREMENTS
 
For Full Lace Wigs –all six (6) measurements are required
 
1) Measure your head Circumference with a tape measure around your hairline.

Circumference: This measures the distance around your head. Starting at the center of the front hairline, place the tape flat against your head, going just above the ear towards the back of the head, keeping the tape at the nape of your neck and go around to the opposite side of your head, just above the opposite ear and returning to the center of the front hairline. Circumference = 23 inches
 
2) Measure Front to Nape

Front to Nape: This measures the length of your head from the front to the nape of your neck. To determine where the nape of your neck is, tilt your head back and look up. Where your neck bends and may even develop a skin fold, is where your nape is. You want the bottom of the wig to sit right above this area so that when you do tilt your head back that far, your wig will not shift on your head. This area is often right at the occipital bone, but be sure to take the measurement with your neck bent down so that you are looking at your shoes. Starting at the front hairline, measure directly across the middle top of your head to the area that you have determined is your nape. Front to Nape = 15 inches.
 
3)Measure from Temple to Temple and Ear to Ear Across Forehead

Temple to Temple across Front: This measures your temple to temple length for tape tab placement. Place tape at your temple, just in front of your ear, bring tape up towards the top of the head and go 1.5 inch behind the front hairline, down to the opposite temple in front of the opposite ear. Temple to Temple = 13 inches. Ear to Ear =13 ½
 
4) Measure from Ear to Ear Over Top of Head

Ear to Ear Across Top of Head: This measures your head for the top of the wig base. Place tape against your head at the top edge of your ear and go directly across the top of your head to the top edge of the opposite ear. Ear to Ear = 13 ½ inches.
 
5) Measure from Temple to Temple Around the Back of Head

Temple to Temple Around the Back of the Head: Place tape against your head at the front edge of the hairline (sideburn area) in front of the ear, go around the head above the occipital bone to the opposite front edge of the hairline. Temple to Temple = 15  inches.
 
6) Measure the Nape of Your Neck

Nape: The measures the width of your neck. Place tape at the lowest point on the bone behind your ear (mastoid bone) and measure across the neck to the opposite mastoid bone. Nape = 5  inches.

Sealing Knots to Prevent Shedding, and Fraying of the Lace
 
you need to seal the knots in your lf unit right after you cut the lace.. you can also use fray block to apply around the circumference of the lace to prevent the lace from fraying.. fray block can be purchased at any krafts shops or fabric stores..fast trek knot and adhesive sealer use be applied after every washing and/or b4 you wear your unit for the first time..this will prevent the hair from shedding when you seal the knots..
 
www.adventhair.com is one of the website's where you can buy fast trek knot and adhesive sealer..

Babyhairs
This is a personal decision that should be based on your needs and growth pattern. If you are a person who has a lot of natural babyhairs then you may want to apply slightly behind them, to the skin, to give a natural look and avoid damaging them. This should be done very carefully as hairline damage is a possibility if done incorrectly. For those who want to apply in front of their babyhairs make sure that you account for this in your measurments. Avoid high densities in the front hairline area to avoid the wolf hairline look. The same can be said for the nape area. Compare your natural hairline to that of the wig and you will notice that your hair naturally progresses from barely there to fuller. Your wig should follow a very similar pattern. Many vendors can work from a picture so feel free to send one for reference.
 
Note about babyhairs and application.
It is very easy to get them caught in the adhesive so take your time and be careful. Be very careful when cutting them in if you choose to. AVOID EXCESSIVE BABYHAIRS. WHILE THEY MAY HELP CONCEAL A LESS THAN PERFECT APPLICATION THEY ARE A DEAD GIVEAWAY THAT YOUR HAIR IS IN FACT A WIG. TRY TO MIMIC A NATURAL HAIRLINE PATTERN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. AVOID THE PERFECTLY STAIGHT HAIRLINE UNLESS YOU NATURALLY HAVE ONE (NOT VERY COMMON).

Knot Sealer

Knot sealer is used to minimize shedding and/or prevent hair loss. It is a form of preventive maintenance.

It usually comes is a spray bottle or aerosol spray can. It is sprayed onto the lace on the underside of the wig. It is not meant to come into contact with the hair, other than the knots. Knot sealer is a product that needs to be reapplied. Most reapply the knot sealer each time the wig is washed, some use it on an as needed basis. When your wig first arrives it is a good idea to use knot sealer to initially strengthen the knots.

Products that can be used to seal knots:

TDI Fast Track Tape Tab & Knot Sealer (see link below)
http://www.hairdirect.com/resources/products/tdiknotsealer-instructions.aspx

Patricia Nimocks Clear Acrylic Sealer


Minwax Polyurethane spray


3M77 Adhesive

**There are many brands of "clear acrylic sealer" in addition to those listed above that can be used to seal knots**

Where to purchase knot sealers:

With the exception of TDi sealer, most of the above products can be purchased at craft stores such as Michaels or JoAnns. Home improvement stores such as Home Depot or Lowes. And of course, Walmart in the craft section.
