Full lace wigs are manufactured with a cap, and a thin lace sewn on top of the cap. Individual hairs are then sewn into the thin lace. Full lace wigs will have lace all around the unit, and require the lace to be cut all around the unit. You will be cutting a hairline around your entire head. By doing so, once done you can wear your hair anyway you like, ponytails, up-dos etc. Think about it. With the wig, you have just cut yourself a new hairline around your entire head. Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front, back, and sides of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that all of the hair is growing directly from your head.
Lace front wigs are manufactured with a thin lace that extends from ear to ear across the hairline. Lace front wigs are made similar to a regular ladies wig along the back and sides of the unit. When you receive the unit the lace will be really long in the front, you will cut the lace along the front of the unit. The goal here is to create a new hairline. You will not cut all of the lace, as you will apply adhesive to the lace/your new hairline. Once the unit is applied, you will have on a full hair wig - but the front of the hair wig will not be like a regular wig. The wig will appear that it is growing directly from your head.
A lace front wig is not with lace around the back, so you cannot wear it in a high ponytail with back. A full lace wig is with lace all around available for being worn in a high ponytail, which will give a more natural looking than lace front wigs. That’s the only difference between full lace wig and lace front wig .

Hair extensions are hair that is attached to your own hair to give you the appearance and feel of longer hair. Hair extension can be made from synthetic hair or from real human hair.
There are many different types of hair extension, including:
1. weaving - a process in which you create tracks on the individuals head and sew the hair extensions on. This method is the most widely used in adding hair extensions.
2. Braiding - a process in which you add hair extensions by braiding them in. There are many types of braiding techniques such as cornrow but they vary from one beautician to another.
3. Fusion - a process in which the extended hair is attached directly to your own hair by a heated glue stick. In this method, an acrylic glue stick is placed inside a glue gun that heats and melts the glue. The hair extension and the glue are then attached directly onto the individual's hair.
Bonding - A simple method of extending hair. A bonding glue is brushed or applied onto the extension hair and then applied to the root of the real hair. This is more of a temporary method of extending hair.
U - Tip - a process in which a "U" shaped spot of glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to be attached by using the hair extension iron.
I - Tip - a process in which an "I" shaped spot of glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to be attached by using the hair extension iron or with a Ring. With the Ring, there's no heat applied to the hair.

Here are some tips helpful on prevention of shedding hair overfull.
It is all right for light shedding, but if the hair shedding on your full lace wig is more than our natural hair, this will be abnormal.
Be sure NOT TO apply any products including alcohol onto the hair of your full lace wig, such as some kinds of hair spray, because these improper products will lead to damage the hair and hair shedding will be found easily.
You may braid up the hair of your full lace wig or tie it in a ponytail before going to sleep so as to avoid any tangles. You'd better to use a scarf on your head or a hair bonnet when sleeping, which will reduce less breaking and shedding of the hair for your full lace wig.
Remember that chlorine and salt water may cause damage to the hair of full lace wig, so you need to wear a swim cap during swimming or wash the full lace wig after swimming to avoid chlorine and salt water left on the hair of your wig. After washing, use TDi Knot & Tape Tab Sealer to seal the knots onto the inside of your lace wig cap again in order to firm the knots on each hair tile for protection from shedding .
You may choose a satin pillowcase for night sleep in order to avoid friction. Cotton pillowcases with fibers rub against your hair, oppositely, satin pillowcases let the hair slip freely. Also for cheaper cost, you can place a satin petticoat or nightie over your cotton pillows. However, the effects will be also obviously different. Do not wear any barrettes or clips on your hair overnight as these accessories will be difficult to remove after one night. Also during washing hair, tangles may be also created due to scrubbing the hair. Before showering, you need to detangle the hair and apply Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo on your scalp. If you rinse the Silicon Mix Revitalizing Shampoo onto the hair enough, there is no need to scrub the hair, and by this, the hair will be cleaned well. Later, you shall comb through your hair with a wide-toothed comb and make the conditioner rinse onto your hair. By this way, you do not need to take detangling on wet hair. Let the hair dry naturally instead of rubbing it by a towel. Keep Your Hair Tied Up: Loose hair easily get tangled and damaged due to rubbing with your clothes and being caught by straps of handbags. The most proper to protect hair from tangling is to make braids. You may practice braiding your hair during the night. When you have been already with the skill for braids, you can wear braids in various types during the day. Meanwhile, buns are also way for protection of hair from tangles. By this method, we can keep short hair out of harmfulness. Removing Knots From Hair: Bobble-tipped brushes might cause damage to your hair and can not remove any knots as you suppose. You shall use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle the hair starting from the bottom several inches to up towards. You can begin with the bottom of a knot and remove it out, instead of pulling it widely. After detangling, you shall take a boar bristle brush for polishing and protecting your hair from damage.
We recommend washing your hair at least once a week. Keep in mind that it is advised not to sleep on wet hair.
It depends on how frequently you wear your hair extensions, which style you select and what you do to them, so for example are you regularly applying heat o them? The hair can exceed 1 year assuming that they have been well installed and maintained. Maintenance also refers to visiting the stylist for periodic adjustments. The hair can be removed and reinstalled so long as your stylist exercises care and patience during the removal process. Take proper care of your hair and enjoy the lasting benefits.
You can choose any length of extensions based on your personal specifications or dependent upon your natural hair length.
No matter how long your hair is, clip in hair extensions should be worn from a lower part, about 2-6 inch down from your hair top.
