Tips on the difference between French lace net and Swiss lace net

  1. Texture

From the appearance alone, the lace of these two types of lace is very similar. They have the same color, the same density of the grid, and are both very breathable. But you will feel the difference when you touch it in your hands.

Swiss lace is a more delicate and soft fabric that is extremely delicate to the touch. Such a mesh bottom is more comfortable to wear and can reduce the irritation of the scalp. French lace, on the other hand, is rougher to the touch, which is a poorer choice for people with very sensitive scalps.

  1. Durability

Although Swiss lace has a soft texture, it is less durable. Because it is fragile, it does not even need a lot of external force to be damaged. Therefore, extra care must be taken when wearing and removing it. French lace is relatively more durable, and it is also resistant to many external threats such as weather, heat styling and stretching.

French lace generally lasts 3 to 4 months, while Swiss lace only lasts a month. Of course, if you take good care of it ,you can extend its service life.

  1. Elasticity

The elasticity allows the wig to be worn and removed without being stretched out of shape and damaged.

French lace is not only durable but also more elastic, its main feature being that it regains its original shape and size when stretched. Swiss fabrics, on the other hand, are delicate and hardly resist stretching. Lace may tear under great pressure or may become deformed beyond repair.

Tips on choosing the Swiss lace or French lace

If you are wearing a wig for the first time, then the best choice is French lace, as it is stronger and more durable. It is not recommended to choose Swiss lace when you first wear it, because at this time you are not yet good at wearing and removing wigs and can easily damage the fragile lace. If you have some experience with wearing wigs, then you can choose Swiss lace.

On the other hand, you have to consider the length of time you will be wearing the wig.If you are only going to wear it for a short time, then it is better to choose Swiss lace fabric, , which is comfortable to wear, although it wears out quickly. If you are going to wear it for a long time, it is better to choose French lace because it lasts longer and can resist the daily threat of external damage.

Also, if you have a sensitive scalp, the best choice is Swiss lace.

All in all, Swiss lace is a very delicate wig fabric that does not cause scalp irritation. Although it is more susceptible to damage and less durable and flexible than French lace. However, it is comfortable to wear, lightweight and breathable. The Swiss fabric is versatile and is compatible with both full and spot balding hair. Its color blends perfectly with the color of the scalp and face and is very natural. You may try our lace wig with high quality to feel more about it. https://specialwig.com/collections/lace-straight/products/straight-hd-lace-front-wig-150-density?variant=40113905696968

Tips on caring your lace wigs

When the wig is first bought back

For a brand new lace wig, the factory will cover it with a layer of silicone to protect the hair and keep it in good condition when it is made. But the presence of silicone can make it difficult for the glue or film to stick effectively, resulting in your wear is not strong, so it is best to wash your hair piece first after you just bought it back.

After 2-3 weeks of wearing

Although it is a wig, it is the same as our real hair and needs to be cleaned regularly.

So how do you clean worn lace hair pieces?

The following steps should be kept in your mind.

  1. Gently wipe the bottom of the net with adhesive removal cotton to remove all the adhesive from the top.
  2. Rinse the bottom of the net and hair with warm water (the water temperature should not be too hot, otherwise it is easy to cause the bottom of the net and hair deformation).
  3. Take a small amount of shampoo, rub out the foam on the hair, and then rinse with warm water.
  4. Use the wig has a soft conditioning effect of conditioner, can make the hair soft and not easy to tangle.
  5. Rinse the conditioner with warm water.
  6. Gently wipe the hair with a towel to absorb moisture.Be careful not to pull too hard, otherwise the fragile bottom of the net is easy to be torn, or the hair above is easy to be torn off.
  7. After drying,please put it on the head mold for drying, can be worn again.

Warm tips

  1. When cleaning the lace wig, please do not soak it in water, conditioner or any other type of liquid for more than 10 minutes, because prolonged soaking will loosen the hair knots and cause hair loss.
  2. Do not wash your hair piece as often as you wash your own hair, because washing it too often can harm the wig and also lead to tangles.
  3. Their own cleaning can only be cleaned off the surface of the dirt, but deep cleaning and hair maintenance also need to be taken care of by a specialist, so your wig also need to be regularly taken to the wig store and other places for special care.
