A quality product should come from certified materials. That being said, the lace quality determines how comfortable the patch is. If the lace is thin, your scalp will feel less heat from double layers of hair.
The breathability of lace frontals is essential. Otherwise, you will be likely to experience itchy and tight scalp.
What’s more, the hair type is also essential. You should choose human hair instead of synthetic fibers. If you want to the lace frontal looks natural and blends perfectly to your existing hair, this is the only choice.

How to make the base for lace front body wave
Step 1: You need to determine your hairline on the canvas head. Use a black pen to mark where the hairline begins. If you just want to try for the first time, this step is not necessary. However, we would recommend you to do step 1.
What size do you want your lace front to be? Use the measuring tape and start from the hairline to the middle of the canvas head. In this instruction, we will make a 6-inch lace frontal.
After figuring the measurement out, use a balled pin to mark it down.
Put the lace on the head and use the balled pins to keep the lace on its place. You should put the pin apart from each other 1 inch around the hairline. At the top, you should also put pins along the lace edge.
Make sure that no lace sticks out from the head.
Done! Now you have the base for a lace front. The next step is to ventilate hair to the base with a latch-hook needle. But we will get to later in another article.

How to care for lace frontal body wave
Say no to brush
Body wave curls are extremely loosening. If you brush your hair too often, you will lose all the beautiful curls sooner or later. We would suggest you stay away from all the brushes, even the wide-toothed one.
So, how to deal with hair knots? Simply use your finger. Remember to be gentle. Detangle your hair from the lace until the end.
Wash it carefully
You shouldn’t wash your lace fronts too often. The ideal period is once every 3 to 4 days. Also, you should concern the washing method as well.
Do not dip your lace frontals entirely into the water. You should only focus on the hair. Wash it for 5 minutes and use a gentle type of shampoo just.
Dry it properly
After washing the lace front, you need to let it air dry. Do not use hair dryers just because you want to wear it as soon as possible. The heat from hair dryers will damage the hair strands.
Instead, you should hang the extensions up and let it dry. Also, do not brush the frontal when it is wet.
The bottom line
Ladies, we know that lace frontal body wave is such an appealing option. You can either choose to buy a ready-made item or make the beautiful wave patterns at home.
