The Meltdown Method
This is one of the newest techniques of getting your lace front wig orlace frontalto look so natural that you can snap a pic and add the hashtag or caption “What Frontal”.
This technique is called “Meltdown Method” and should be done with several precautions taken.
What is a Lace Front Wig or Frontal?
Lace FrontWigs— is a small sheer lace panel along the front hairline attached to the frontal of the wig. The hair strands are hand sewn into the holes of the lace.
Wearing lace front wigs is very simple because they are stretchy and cover the entire scalp area and gives the appearance of a natural hairline.
Lace Frontals— are similar to a lace wig, but this hairpiece only covers the front of the head from ear to ear. Wearing afrontalhairpiece will protect your hairline from becoming damaged and provide maximum versatility when it comes to stylinghair extensions.
This piece gives the appearance of a natural hairline as well. Lace frontals are also used to create a wig along with3 bundlesor4 bundlesof hair.
This process can not be done if there are scabs or any irritation along your hairline. Before you begin the meltdown method your hairline must be cleaned with a cotton ball and alcohol.
With this technique, an electric hot comb is required to complete the process. Make sure that you do not allow your hot comb to become extremely hot. Your hot comb should be set to medium and not above. If the hot comb temperature is set any higher there is a possibility you may damage your scalp.
