The breathability of lace front wigs is better than other wigs without lace, because lace has good breathability.
A good breathability is beneficial to the wearer and feel comfortable.

How to Wear it
a. Flatten Your Own hair
The flatter your hair is against your head, the better the wig will look. You can braid short hair into corn rows or mold it against your head using gel and bobby pins. For long hair, first tie your hair in a low ponytail. Next, wrap the ponytail into a flat bun and secure it with bobby pins.
Allow any gel or hairspray to dry before continuing.
b. Put On A Wig Cap
Wig caps, are soft caps that flatten and protect your own hair and help the wig stay in place. Gently pull on the stocking cap, being careful not to disturb your flattened hair. Adjust the cap so that it barely covers your hairline.
The cap will slide around your head and bunch up under your wig.
Make sure all of your hairs are tucked into this cap, even the hairs on the nape of your neck.
c. Put On The Wig
Remove the wig and set it aside.
Carefully pull the wig off, leaving all the clips in, and set the transparent wig on a clean flat surface. Arrange the wig so that it’s easy to see what part goes on the hairline and what part goes on the nape of the neck. You can adjust the adjustable straps to fix the wig.
d. Glue The Wig
Carefully pull the wig on. First, adjust the edge of the wig so that the hairlines match. Next, adjust the back of the wig so that it hangs naturally over your hair. Lastly, press the lace of the wig into the glue. Once lace was glued, it’s very hard to remove. Be sure that the wig is perfectly aligned before doing so. Of course, if you don’t want to glue it, you can please wear the wig grip before you put on your wig. With the wig grip, even if you don’t use glue, the wig also be fixed and not easy to remove look natural and easy to take off.
e. Style Your Hair
If your wig is made of human hair, you can use regular brushes, hot styling tools, and hair products. If your wig is synthetic, avoid using regular brushes and hot styling tools. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb or wig brush to adjust your hair.
f. Maintain Your Wig
If we go to bed with the wig, the rub between the wig and bed will hurt the wig and may cause the shedding and tangling. So we’d better go to bed without wig or just find a way to protect the wig.
If you take off your wig, first, remove any glue with a commercial wig glue remover or regular baby oil. To do so, rub the remover along your hairline where the lace meets the glue. Continue rubbing gently until the lace lifts away from your scalp. Do not pull the lace to remove it you will damage the wig.
Or if you don’t want to take off wig everyday, you can please use the silk scarf to cover the wig when you go to bed to reduce the rub to protect your wig.
