Traction Alopecia

What is traction alopecia? It is the gradual loss of hair due to the pulling force applied to natural hair. It generally affects the hairline and circumference of the persons hair. 

With all of the various hair styles and styling techniques in todays world our hair goes through so much. We often take for granted how delicate our hair is until it falls victim to the excessive abuse we put it through.

Signs that there may be too much tension on your hailine include:

  • bumps on the scalp at the root of the hair
  • hairline starting to recede
  • head aches from tension of hair

One of the causes of traction alopecia experienced by many women is as a result of weaves, extensions, and wigs that have been adhered using glue. Which is one of the reasons we at Heavenly Lox promote the use of healthier applications of wigs or extensions (in addition to the fact that we don't believe standard marketplace glue is healthy for daily application to your skin).

We offer lace caps integrated with elastic  and adjustable straps at the nape which allow for a healthier application of your wig. It is easy for daily use as it can be taken on and off, but is still secure that you can wear without worry that it may shift as you go about your day.

Whether you are experiencing hair loss or are wanting a protective style as you grow out your hair, our elastic integration caps are a fabulous alternative.

Caring for your lace wigs

Lace front units are inherently different from "full lace wigs". To understand how to maintain a lace front, you must first understand the construction. A lace front unit has two main sections to the cap: a lace frontal piece, and a wefted back piece. The hairs on the lace frontal piece are individually hand-tied to the lace, however, the hairs on the wefted portion are machine sewn. In contrast, the hairs on the entire cap of a full lace wig are "hand-tied". This difference is a portion of why you will find slightly more shedding in a lace front wig than you would a full lace wig.

The hair in the wefted portion of the unit is more prone to slipping out and shedding, than the hair that is individually hand-tied to the lace. With this in mind, here are some tips to help minimize shedding:

  •     Do not brush/comb hair while wet
  • When detangling hair, start from the tip of the hair moving up to the root, always firmly holding directly above the hair you are brushing. This will minimize the stress placed directly on the weft, as you are not tugging the root of the hair out of the weft.
  •     While washing your unit, pay special attention to cleaning the weft, but not to pull or place undue pressure on the hair at the root. This may cause the hair to loosen and slip out of the track
  •     Use a good conditioner, one that will impart softness, moisture and sheen. Allow your conditioner to sit on the hair for 5-10 minutes. This will help to minimize tangling, and maximize the longevity of your unit

What are bleached knots?

When a strand of hair is hand tied to the lace on lace wigs it forms a knot at the root. Many lace wigs are doubled knotted to ensure a secure hold, however, this process results in a slightly more visible knot "nodule" on the lace. These knots are small and can still allow for a natural looking part on your unit. However, many ladies will opt for the knots to be bleached, in this process the knots are chemically lightened to provide a more "invisible" seamless part in the unit. Bleaching the knots are quite common in most human hair units, in many cases only the perimeter is bleached. The drawback to having "bleached knots", is that this weakens the hair at the root, and can result in increased shedding in your unit.

Tips to maximize the longevity of your wigs

Ladies, now that you have purchased your lovely unit, you will want to ensure it lasts for a long time. Here are some tips that will help you keep your unit in maximum condition:

  •     Reducing the amount of friction against your hair will help to minimize tangling. Use of a silk pillow case will allow hair to flow freely against it while you sleep. Wearing a silk head tie when you do not need your hair open will help to reduce friction from hair rubbing against clothes, hats, bag straps etc...
  •     Keeping hair moisturized especially in dry climates. Use of leave in conditioners, light oils, or your favourite moisturizing sheen, all can help to keep the hair on your unit from becoming dry and brittle.
  •     Reducing the amount  of exposure to chlorine (eg swimming pools) will hep to reduce matting and tangling, as chlorine may strip and dry the hair on your unit). It would be advisable to condition and moisturize your unit well after swimming in pools or other chlorinated water.
  •     When using curling or flat irons, using a heat protecting spray will help to reduce heat damage to the hair on your unit. Heated rollers are a really great alternative to curling irons. They are significantly gentler on your hair and may therefore be a better choice in order to increase the longevity of your unit.

Not all lace wigs are created equally.....

Ladies, there are human hair wigs, human hair remy wigs, and virgin human hair wigs..... knowing the difference will help you make a more informed decision when making hair purchases.

    Regular human hair wigs are made with human hair usually from various donors, the ends are not matched in a unidirectional manner which tends to result in tangling of the hair. This hair may have gone through various forms of processing. This is the most economical form of human hair.
    Remy human hair is a higher quality product because the cuticles of the hair are still intact and the each hair strand is aligned in the same direction (unidirectional). This results in much less tangling and matting of the hair, which helps to extend the life of the unit.
    Virgin human hair is also remy hair and in addition has never been chemically processed. Since no processing is done to the hair, virgin hair is always sold as it... natural colour and texture/curl pattern. Virgin hair is the perfect canvas if you plan to process the hair in any way (eg. colouring). Virgin hair is the most expensive type of human hair.

What is a lace wig?

Ladies, lace wigs...lace wigs...... they are basically wigs created on a lace base (swiss or french), and are the secret of the celebrities. Well not really a secret anymore because many everyday ladies are rockin these bad boys. Why these wigs are so popular is because they solve the issue traditional wigs have had for many years... THAT UNREALISTIC HAIRLINE. The lace used on lace wigs are fine delicate pieces that become undetectable when placed against your skin. The hair strands of the wig are sewn onto this lace base, and when place on your head, essentially looks like the hair is growing from your scalp.

There are two types of lace wigs:

    Lace front wig: only the front hairline is made from hand sewn hairs onto a lace base. The back/base of the wig is similar to that of a traditional wig. These wigs can be worn in a low ponytail because they do not have lace around the perimeter of the wig. Your parting room for creating a natural part varies from brand to brand. You should be clear how much lace you will be getting when purchasing a lace front wig
    Full lace wig: the entire wig is made from a lace base which allows total freestyle parting, including high ponytails. Various cap styles are on the market.

Both lace front wigs and full lace wigs can be found in synthetic and human hair alternatives. There are two types of lace available on the market today: Swiss lace or French lace.

    Swiss lace is a delicate and soft lace which is the most undetectable to the eyesight.
    French lace has a more course texture in comparison to Swiss lace and a little more detectable but if you select a good colour match to your skin tone creates a very realistic hairline. French lace is more durable because it is a courser material.
