Reasons For Why Your Wig Matting At The Root

    Hi, there, this is UWigs. Two questions that we get a lot when it comes to the matting of lace wigs. Number one is, how can I stop my lace wig from matting at the root? And, the other question is, what do you suggest for cutting the turnovers out? Whether it's suggested to do that or not? Here is my answer to both questions.

Reasons For Why Your Wig Matting At The Root|UWigs

    Number one, in order to stop the matting at the root of your lace closure wig, lace front wig, whatever it is, it would be better to go and cut those turnovers. Some people call them turnovers, but some people call the returns, it all depends. As far as personal opinion, I suggest cutting the turnovers out. It allows the hair to lay the way it's supposed to layout, and it also makes for a beautiful piece.

    Now, here is a specific way I think it may help you. To do this method, you will need a rat tail comb and shears. When you do that, take the back end of the rat tail comb and rubbing that hair back and forth, then the tiny hairs are sticking up. What you need to do is take those hairs that are sticking up.

    Here is a little different from the traditional method that needs attention. Most of the time, lots of people cut straight across and cut blunt. I do not suggest doing that because sometimes, depending on the texture of the hair, that hair can stick up.  I think most people don't like that. So, I recommend going in point cut to add a little bit of texture to make those ends a little bit jagged, so it will not stick straight up. Pointcut those out. Once you do that, if you still see some sticking up, cut those little pieces out, and move on, continue going all the way until you have cut all of your turnovers out. You do not want your sections to be too thick, since if they are, then it means you have cut too much, it will be too thick, so it lays very weirdly.

    When it comes to the matting question. The reason for the matting is that if you are working with cuticle hair, your cuticle may be in two different directions. When these cuticles are not in the same direction and not matched, it can cause severe tangles and matting, that's why you need to go and cut those turnovers out. Sometimes it would not cause severe tangling and matting, but it can. So, we suggest cutting the turnovers out, and then we can prevent our wigs from tangling and matting. If you have never done it before, I suggest you do it. If you want to do this, I would suggest starting in the back, don't start in the front only because you would better test it out and make sure doing it right. Once you get the hang of it, then you can go from the front to the back.
