Method 3 Using Heat Tools
1.Dry your wig with a hair dryer before using heat tools. Your wig should be fully dry before you use any heated tools on it. Using heat tools on damp hair can damage or burn your wig. You can let your lace wig air dry for a full day or use a hair dryer on low heat to make sure it is fully dry.
2.Apply heat protectant to avoid damage. Heat protectant helps to lock in your wig’s natural moisture and keep it looking shiny. Spray a liberal amount of heat protectant throughout your wig before you use heat on it. You can buy heat protectants at most beauty supply stores.
You can use a brush to make sure that your heat protectant is covering your entire wig.
3.Set a flat iron for a sleek look. Set your flat iron to a low temperature (preferably below 300 °F (149 °C)) and gently run it over 1 inch (2.5 cm) sections of your hair. Flat irons will straighten your wig and give you a sleek and defined style. Straightening your wig is great for when you want to show off its length or a new cut. Straight hair looks the best on blunt cuts, like bobs or a-lines
Warning: If your wig is really curly, it’s probably not a good idea to straighten it, because it can ruin the curl pattern.
4.Create waves with a flat iron for a more relaxed look. If you want to style your hair but still have it looking mostly natural, you can use a flat iron to create waves and volume. Set your flat iron to a low temperature and twist 1 inch (2.5 cm) sections of hair around it about 3 times. Repeat this until you have loose curls all over your wig. Spray some hairspray on your wig to keep the curls in place.
Tip: If you want your curls to be even looser, you can run a brush through them after they are done.
5.Use a curling iron for tight curls. A curling iron will give your wig tight, ringlet like curls. Turn your curling iron to a low temperature and wrap 1 inch (2.5 cm) sections of hair 5 to 6 times around your iron. Do this over your entire wig until you have small curls all over. Spray some hairspray all over your wig to keep the curls in place.
