Lace Wigs – Hair Textures

Now that you have accepted the idea of building your own custom lace wig, you are wondering about the hair texture options. What does all this mean??

There are so many texture options out there and I bet you are so confused by now, so let me help clear the fog on this one. Texture is referring to the type of hair you would like (i.e. straight, wavy, curly, etc.).

If you have Caucasian hair, the best hair texture for you will be “straight” or “silky straight”, if you like the flat ironed look. You can always curl your hair with rollers or a hot curler however if you prefer to have curly hair everyday, you can always select a wavy or body wave type curl.

If you have naturally curly hair, you can choose to go straight, wavy or curly, depending on your preference.

If you have African-American textured hair, your best bet will be to go with a yaki texture. Now, just to clear things up, “yaki” is NOT a type of hair or animal hair, it is merely a texture that looks similar to permed African-American hair. If you prefer the flat ironed look, silky yaki would be perfect.

Some African-American women do not like to have “silky straight” hair as it does not look as natural however some absolutely love it. It all depends on your own personal preference.

If you really like curly textures, please note that these textures tend to require more maintenance. The smaller the curl pattern, the more likely it will be that the hair will tangle and frizz. Despite the fact that the hair is 100% Remy hair, let’s face it, even if you had naturally curly hair, it would tangle. Expecting a lace wig with small curls to not tangle would be considered impractical.

If you are considering a synthetic lace wig, it is not recommended that you get a texture too curly or too wavy. Although they are available, they tend to not last as long as straighter textures.
