Discover the essential steps to maintain and extend the beauty of your True Glory Hair
Hair Care by Product
Preparing Bundles Before Installation
Wash: Begin by treating your bundles to a gentle wash using sulfate-free shampoo and deep conditioner. This step removes impurities while retaining the hair's natural moisture.
Dry: Allow your bundles to air dry or use a low-heat setting on your blow dryer. This safeguards their integrity and minimizes moisture loss.
Detangle: Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle, starting from the tips and moving upward. This approach prevents breakage and maintains hair health.
Installing Bundles and Seeking Professional Expertise
Stylist's Expertise: We strongly recommend opting for professional installation by a skilled stylist. Their expertise ensures a seamless application without compromising your natural hair.
Stylist Consultation: Prioritize a consultation with your stylist before installation. This allows tailored advice and an optimal maintenance plan.
Routine Maintenance: As your own hair grows in, we recommend scheduling maintenance appointments with your stylist approximately every two weeks (depending on the application method) to avoid any excessive tangling or breakage of your own hair. If you are installing the extensions yourself, sew around the wefts, not through them, to avoid destroying the weft construction. This will prolong the life of your bundles!
Styling Your Bundles
Straight and Wavy Textures
Detangling Process: Approach detangling with care. Begin at the ends and gradually move upwards towards the wefts. A gentle touch prevents unnecessary shedding.
Lightweight leave-in: Enhance your styling routine by applying a modest amount of lightweight oil or leave in between your palms. Distribute this through your hair to infuse it with a healthy shine before introducing other products.
Heat Styling Insights: For straight, Body Wave, Loose Wave, and Water Wave patterns, exercise caution when applying heat. Prioritize a light heat protectant and never surpass 350 degrees Fahrenheit on your hot tools.
Curly and Kinky Textures
Wet Combing Technique: For curlier textures, opt for wet hair when detangling. Start from the ends and move upwards towards the wefts, ensuring a gentle touch to minimize shedding.
Curl Enhancement: If your hair is dry, consider spritzing it with water. Follow up with a curl custard, defining cream, or curl mousse. Scrunch your hair using your hands to encourage the wave pattern's definition.
Heat Styling Tips: Although it's recommended to avoid heat on curly textures, if necessary, use a heat protectant before touching up with hot tools. Stay below 350 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve your hair's health.
Coloring and Dying Insights
Strategic Coloring: Like your natural hair, your True Glory Hair can be dyed and bleached to any custom color. For best results, we recommend coloring before install. We always recommend that True Glory Hair be colored by a professional stylist.
Bleaching Precautions: Approach lightening with care. Due to the potential for dryness and shedding, conduct strand tests and implement intensive conditioning treatments.
Navigating Tangles and Shedding
Tangle Management Techniques: Employ a wide-tooth comb, moving from tips to roots. Pair this with regular deep conditioning to maintain hair softness and minimize tangles.
Shedding Control: Minimal shedding is a natural occurrence, much like with your own hair. However, if you find excessive shedding, a few strategies can help. Firstly, consider sealing your wefts with a weft sealer before installation to reinforce their stability. Additionally, during installation or maintenance, avoid sewing directly through the wefts. Instead, opt to sew around them. This delicate approach reduces strain on the weft construction and prolongs your bundle's life.
Daily Care and Bedtime Routine
Gentle Brushing Technique: Daily care calls for a soft-bristle brush or wide comb. Start at the tips and gently progress upwards for a seamless detangling experience.
Nighttime Protection: At night, ensure your hair is protected. Choose between braiding or wrapping with a silk or satin scarf to guard against tangling and friction.
Pillowcase Preference: Elevate your sleep game with silk or satin pillowcases. These reduce friction, keeping your hair's integrity intact through the night.
Prolonging Bundle Lifespan
Heat Application: Less is more when it comes to heat styling. Limit usage to preserve the hair's health and structure.
Style Diversity: Embrace versatility in your hairstyles. Varying styles distribute wear evenly across your bundles, prolonging their life.
Routine Conditioning Ritual: Regular deep conditioning sessions maintain the moisture balance and lustrous appearance of your bundles.
True Glory Hair Care Guide: Wigs
Welcome to the True Glory Hair Care Guide for Wigs, your essential resource for maintaining the splendor and durability of your prized wig collection. Our approach is straightforward yet thorough, providing you with the knowledge to uphold the charm of your wigs.
Preparing Wigs Before Wear
Wash: When you receive your brand new, cleanse using sulfate-free shampoo and follow up with a deep conditioner. This step cleanses the wig while infusing essential moisture.
Air Dry: After cleansing, opt for air drying to preserve the wig's structural integrity. If time is of the essence, opt for set you blow dryer on low-heat, taking care not to overexpose the hair to heat.
Untangle with Care: Detangle the wig's strands using a wide-tooth comb. Begin from the ends and gradually progress towards the crown, employing a gentle approach to avoid undue stress on the hair. Avoid tugging on the lace.
Caring for the Lace
The delicate lace on your True Glory Hair products requires special attention to ensure its longevity and integrity. Proper care of the lace enhances the overall appearance and lifespan of your frontals, closures, and wigs. Here's a comprehensive guide to effectively care for the lace:
Gentle Handling: Treat the lace with utmost care to avoid damage. Avoid using bobby pins, clips, or any sharp objects that could potentially puncture or harm the lace. Harsh manipulation can lead to excessive shedding, as each hair is individually tied for a handmade finish.
Comb with Caution: Use a wide tooth comb for detangling, starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots. This approach minimizes tension on the lace and hair strands, reducing the risk of shedding.
Minimize Manipulation: Excessive touching, scratching, or constant adjustment of the lace can lead to wear and tear. Minimize direct contact with the lace to maintain its delicate structure.
Professional Washing: For optimal results, we recommend having your frontals, closures, and wigs washed by a professional stylist. They are equipped with the expertise to handle lace delicately during the cleansing process.
Shampoo Technique: If you choose to shampoo your lace products yourself, adopt a gentle approach. While massaging the shampoo, do so in one consistent direction. This prevents unnecessary stress on the lace while effectively cleansing it.
Applying Wigs and Caring for the Lace
Application: When wearing the wig, position the lace along your natural hairline. Trim excess lace delicately for a seamless fit that enhances the wig's overall look.
Expert Styling: Achieve optimal results by going to a professional stylist. Their skill ensures a harmonious blend of the wig's lace with your natural hairline, resulting in a flawless presentation.
Routine Maintenance and Lace Care
Regular Maintenance: Schedule routine maintenance appointments to uphold your wig. Regular visits to a stylist or care expert ensure your wig remains in impeccable condition.
Lace Preservation: To maintain the lace's transparency, refrain from applying adhesive or styling products directly onto it. When removing the wig, exercise precision to prevent any undue strain on the lace.
Styling Your Wig
Straight & Wavy: For straight and wavy textures, approach styling with care. Detangle gently, start at the ends, and introduce a lightweight oil for added sheen. Apply a heat protectant before heat styling and avoid exceeding 350 degrees Fahrenheit to protect your wig's integrity.
Curly & Kinky: Curlier textures require detangling with damp hair, moving upwards from the ends. For dry hair, mist with water and use curl products. If heat styling is necessary, ensure the application of a heat protectant and adhere to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Coloring and Dying
Coloring: Consider pre-installation dyeing for even results. Collaborate with a professional colorist for desired outcomes, minimizing the potential for uneven color distribution.
Bleach Thoughtfully: Lightening carries risks of dryness and shedding. Conduct strand tests and implement intensive conditioning treatments to mitigate potential damage.
Prolonging Wig Life
Limit Heat Exposure: Minimize heat styling to preserve your wig's structure and quality.
Embrace Style Variation: Vary your hairstyles to distribute wear evenly, extending the lifespan of your wig.
Routine Nourishment: Regular deep conditioning sessions maintain moisture balance and vibrancy.

The Care Basics
1. Gentle Handling: Please avoid bobby pins, clips, scratching, or anything that could puncture or damage the lace. All of our lace products are handmade and each hair is individually tied, so any harsh manipulation will cause excessive shedding. When dealing with lace frontals and closures, a gentle touch is paramount. Avoid harsh pulling, tugging, or undue manipulation of the lace area. This safeguards the intricate construction and reduces the risk of shedding.
2. Detangling: Begin by detangling your natural hair and the hairpiece separately before installation. When combing through the frontal or closure, always start from the tips and work your way upward using a wide-tooth comb. This minimizes stress on the lace and hair.
3. Shield from Adhesives: While adhesives can enhance the longevity of your installation, ensure they don't come into direct contact with the lace. Adhesive buildup can impair the lace's transparency and affect the overall appearance.
4. Cleansing Ritual: Keep your lace frontals and closures clean to maintain their natural look. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, gently massaging and rinsing in one direction to prevent tangling. Avoid excessive friction during the washing process.
5. Thorough Drying: After washing, allow your lace frontals and closures to air dry. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight or excessive heat, as this can affect the integrity of both the hair and the lace.
6. Professional Care: While at-home maintenance is valuable, consider periodic professional care. Consult a stylist experienced with lace frontals and closures for expert washing, conditioning, and reinstallation if needed.
7. Storage Wisdom: When not in use, store your lace frontals and closures on a wig stand or mannequin head to maintain their shape. Protect them from dust and direct sunlight to ensure their longevity.
Troubleshooting Common Concerns
1. Excessive Shedding: Minimal shedding is natural, but if you're experiencing excess shedding, revisit your detangling technique, minimize manipulation, and ensure proper installation.
2. Lace Discoloration: Prevent adhesive buildup or discoloration by using products that are lace-friendly and avoiding excessive product application near the lace area.
